Colva adopts 3 public interest resolutions

Colva adopts 3 public interest resolutions
Written by NT Network
Monday, 23 November 2009




In a rare show of unity, members at the gram sabha of Colva panchayat, passed three resolutions, unanimously. The gram sabha was held in front of the Colva panchayat building and the three resolutions passed were pertaining to the proposal of construction of water channels and de-silting of two lakes, Daktem Tollem and Vodlem Tollem, and building of sluice gates; the construction of 24-hour Health Centre promoted by NRI office and Colva United Centre, based in Kuwait; and the third was construction of an electricity power sub-station.

While the first resolution was moved on behalf of Tenants Association of Teleband and Socklivand of Sernabatim by Mr Jovek Cardozo, the second resolution was jointly moved by Alexandre M Fernandes, the former president of Colva United Centre, Kuwait and Dr Robinson Costa, while the third resolution was moved by Mr Carmo Rodrigues. The panchayat body as well as the gram sabha unanimously adopted these public interest resolutions and in fact congratulated the gram sabha members for bringing in good proposals that will help in upliftment and progress of Colva village.

Speaking at length while moving the resolution for the construction of water channels and desilting of lakes and also some ponds in Sernabatim area, Mr Cardozo said that the Sernabatim ward has two lakes with sluice gates connected to the narrow water channels to supply water to all the fields in the area. He said the farmers use the sluice gates to regulate and control the flow of water.

It was pointed out that rain water is stored in these lakes with the help of the sluice gates, and later utilised for irrigation for the summer crop.

It was further pointed out that the water channels are supported by thick mounds of mud on either side, which at times collapse, causing water logging which in turn leads to the rotting of the crop. It was therefore pleaded to construct concrete water channels and also protect the sluice gates.

Similarly, the second proposal of 24-hour health center, moved jointly by Dr Costa and Mr Fernandes also received large acceptance, keeping in view the need to take care of the heath of the villagers. Mr Fernandes was publicly congratulated for even making arrangements of funds for this project. This project will be managed and run by the Health Department, provided the panchayat allots proper land for the construction of this project. Mr Fernandes asked the panchayat to allot any land available at the panchayat’s disposal.

The third resolution of having a power sub-station at Colva was also accepted, though a lady gram sabha member tried to belittle the need of such a substation, saying that such sub-station would be of no use until and unless, the panchayat knows how much electricity (power) is needed for the entire state and Colva in particular. Her objections were however overruled and the resolution was adopted, so that Colva has its own power sub-station, as is the case in Majorda and other coastal areas.

A gram sabha member named Jack, who was the former panchayat representative, wanted information on how the BPL allotments are made, and how much revenue the panchayat earns on sopo tax, and also wanted to know what steps the panchayat has taken to save some of the century old residences which are situated on the beach side, as these are said to be under the CRZ scanner.

Garbage issue was also discussed at length and the chairperson, Mr
Anthony Fernandes was heard telling that whatever needs to be done will be done in this respect, adding that the matter is now before the High Court and a discussion was not encouraged as the matter
is sub judice.

- Goa-world.com Team adds:
Alexandre Menino Fernandes is a shining example of how you can do community work while at home as well as abroad. His love for Colva as a son of the soil speaks volumes about him, not unlike others who retire peacefully in their balcony or migrate to the West..... While in Kuwait, Alexandre, together with Tome Gracias and Mario Rebello, has done a lot of spade work to re-register the Goan Welfare Society-Kuwait and has assured his full cooperation with GWS managing committee, of which he was the Treasurer. Keep up the good work and God bless.
Is the Goa NRI Commissioner and the Director for NRI Affairs taking note?

Lament for Goenkarponn


Lament for Goenkarponn

Goa is known for its natural beauty and cultural heritage worldwide. But there was also another quality of a Goan which was known all over the world. It is ‘Goenkarponn’ – in other words, ‘humanity’.
In olden times, if a person was in need of help, all the people of the village used to come to his aid. If a person had a fall on the road or anywhere else, Goans used to come immediately and lift him up. But today, in most of the cases, the situation has become such that if a person falls, Goans will not come to his aid. Some will stand and silently laugh, but won’t care to give a helping hand.
At least 70 per cent of the Goan people have lost their Goenkarponn. The concept and value of a Good Samaritan is diminishing day by day.

Feast of Our Lady of Rosary

Dear Parishioners of Navelim,


Wishing you all a very happy feast of our Lady of Rosary,

With prayerfull wishes,

Brazil Diniz
(Navelim/Kuwait)
antonio at tii.com


Every year, Our Lady of Rosary feast is celebrated in Goa on the 3rd
Wednesday of November.

:::NAVELIM CHURCH OF OUR LADY OF ROSARY:::
_
According to legend, the Navelim church was built in mud similar to the
other churches in Salcete Taluka, between the year 1594 to 1598. The
builders were Jesuits and it was financed by the villagers.
The first parish priest of Navelim Church was a French Jesuit named Fr. John
Sena. (Mitras Lusitanas no Oriente).
As time passed, the church became small for the growing population. Later on
it was reconstructed with laterite stones on a larger scale. The
reconstruction was apparently financed by a local merchant "Barreto" who was
saved from bankruptcy through the intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary. He
financed the entire reconstruction, not only of the church but he also
renewed the statue of our Lady of Rosary.

:::NAVELIM FEAST:::

The celebration of the feast of Our Lady of Rosary begins every third
Wednesday in November. This devotion of Our Lady comprises of an extensive
celebration.

:::NAVELIM FAIR:::

According to legend, in earliest times, this fair consisted mainly of three
or four sheds and lasted only for a day.
DR. FRANCISCO SALVADOR GOMES, father of Dr. Francisco Luis Gomes, who was
the administrator of Salcete, encouraged some of the owners of the sheds to
extend the fair for three days. This was done, and the fair gained in
prominence. Today it is one of the most popular fairs in Goa.

:::LANDMARKS:::

Navelim is rapidly expanding to become Goa's fastest growing villages. Some
of Navelim's famous landmarks include the Margao Central Railway Station and
the infamous Sky Bus.

Anjuna International Group lift Goan Community of Oman Cup



Team AIG (Anjuna International Group) emerged the proud winners of the GCO Football Tournament organized by the Goan Community of Oman on 13th November 2009, edging out Saligao Sporting in an exciting final played at the Oman Club grounds, Al Khuwair.



The tournament opened with a colourful march past by all the participating teams. It was a grand spectacle organized by the tournament committee, in a real professional manner. The sportsman prayer was read by master Noel Vas. The “Beach Boys” was adjudged the best dressed team. The tournament was officially declared open by Flynn de Lima, GCO President by releasing balloons along with the chief guest, Brahmanand Shankwalkar, ex Indian team captain and goalkeeper.



During the league matches, there were major upsets: Favourites like Navelim and CBD boys made early exits. AIG defeated the Beach Boys and FC Siolim in the semis via the tie breaker, while Saligao trounced St. Anne’s and then beat the fancied Black n white Kerala team in the semis, also via the tie breaker. The highlight of the tournament was a fine hatrick by Savio of Saligao against St. Anne’s.



In the evening a tie-breaker tournament for ladies was held, which along with the tug-of-war for women and men, elicited much excitement. Many spot prizes, sponsored by Nawras, were given throughout the day. Brahmanand shared some tips with budding footballers and met each of the participating teams in their respective tents. The band “Cross Connections” kept the crowd in a dancing mood with great music during the evening break.



The finals was a see-saw battle between AIG and Saligao, with both teams exhibiting great soccer with Noel Fernandes as the referee. The game had to be finally decided via a tie-breaker, which went into the second set. Moin of AIG was declared best player of the finals while Sibon Soares of FC Siolim won the player of the tournament award. The best goalkeeper of the tournament was awarded to Azad of B&W Kerala, while the best upcoming player went to Ryan of CBD Boys. Chinchinim won the best disciplined team.


There was a large turnout of Goans, all of whom were in a festive mood. The guests for the finals and prize-distribution ceremony included Brahmanand Shankwalkar, Arjuna Awardee, Flynn de Lima, Celso Fernandes, Dr. Mario de Souza, Baltazar Fernandes and others GCO managing committee members. Brahmanand Shankwalkar was presented with a memento on behalf of the GCO. During the vote of thanks, Mr. Anthony Lourence appreciated the leadership taken by Dominic Fernandes in organizing this tournament and the support extended by other GCO football enthusiasts. He thanked the sponsors Profab/Vanguard, Pepsi, Majan Hotel, Talentz, Techrock Muna Noor, Michael and Selwyn.



The next day Brahmanand held sessions with young aspiring football players of the Indian Schools, Muscat and Al Ghubra. He answered their queries and gave them tips and advice about football. Brahmanand, who himself played for Salgaocar in the club championships in Muscat in 1990, was delighted to be back in Muscat after 20 years, and thanked the organizers for their support.

British School of Kuwait (BSK) students visit Goa to care for orphans

BSK students visit Goa to care for orphans

Valuable 'life skills' learned


- By Oliver Millar
SCC Geography, International Award Coordinator


IT WAS the first objective, the first test of character, the beginning of a long road ahead, as the Gold International Award Participants from The British School of Kuwait (BSK) departed for Goa. Here they would spend a week in a foreign, unknown, yet intriguing environment; caring for orphans at the Al Shaddai orphanages in Goa, India. Prior to departure, there was a lot of planning and preparation for the trip. This year, the young adults wanted to donate old clothes, toys and books as gifts for the orphans which the BSK school community had given so generously. Thanks to the sponsorship of Jet Airways 500kg in excess baggage was delivered free of charge to the needy children at the orphanage.

On arrival it was comforting to witness the International Award spirit radiate as every-one got straight to work.

Throughout the week, the students under took several tasks such as cleaning, painting and decorating in many of the homes which were located around Goa, from the middle of the jungle, to the heart of the slums. Some students taught at the school. It was a joyous experience for the BSK group and many were overcome by the joy emanating from those who had experienced (and continued to experience) great pain and poverty in their lives. "It is beautiful to see how people can have so little yet enjoy life so much" said Cyrus Moosavinia, a Gold Award Participant at BSK.

The week proved to be an interesting and enjoyable experience for all with so many valuable 'life skills' learned. For all who visited Goa, the trip changed their perspective on the world around us; it has made them see the world differently and see how a small act of kindness can change a person's life forever, even something as simple as a smile or a conversation.

Salgaocar Sports (Goa) competed at MUPC 2009 in Manchester

From: "Wendy Fernandes"

Salgaocar Sports (Goa) competed at MUPC 2009 in Manchester
Wendy Fernandes

For all Goan football enthusiasts, you will be interested to know that our very own
Salgaocars from Goa qualified to participate in the Manchester United Premier Cup
(MUPC) football tournament which took place from August 5th to 7th at Carrington
(private training ground for Manchester United team).

Fortunately for me, the Coach, Francisco Bruto da Costa, is a good friend of my
family, who informed me of the arrival and participation of Salgaocars in this
prestigious tournament.

Knowing very little about this tournament, I asked for full details and it is
interesting to note that this tournament was founded in 1993 for under 15s as part
of their program to promote and scout for young talent from around the world. This
year over 43 countries participated at Manchester. To name a few - UK, France,
Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Ghana, China etc. This was an opportunity for teams
to play at international level and share the experience of bridging language and
cultural barriers through sports

This is the fourth year that All India Football Federation (AIFF) in collaboration
with Nike, (world's leading designer of authentic athletic footwear, apparel &
equipment for sports) has been sending a side from India to participate at the MUPC
event. To qualify for the event, a local tournament was held from 11th November 2008
to December 3rd 2008. The following teams - Mahindra United FC, JCT, Pune FC, Viva
Kerala, Salgaocar Sports Club, Sporting Club De Goa, Sikkim Football Academy,
Silchar Football Academy, Mumbai Sports School Association, Pondicherry Coaching
Centre and Uttaranchal participated in the tournamnent.

At the finals (In India) our very own boys played under the banner of the famous
brand 'Salgoacars' and defeated Raghav FC of Gurgaon (Haryana) to make it for the
first time at the MUPC tournament at Manchester.

The Salgaocar team arrived in Manchester prior to the tournament and all
international teams were accommodated at Fallowfield Campus, Manchester University.

The MUPC event kicked off with the opening ceremony followed by a draw at Carrington
on Tuesday 4th August 2009. The guests of honour officiating were Sir Alex
Ferguson, (Manchester United Manager) Sir Bobby Charlton (former professional
football player who won the World Cup in '66) and Rio Ferdinand (defender and
Captain of Manchester United).

Because this event did not attract much attention in the press, it is quite possible
that very few are aware of this wonderful news. I attended the tournament and was
very impressed with the skills and energy of the under 15s. The matches were
exciting to say the least and very competitive and the finals were held on Saturday
8th August 2009 at Old Trafford also known as the "Theatre of Dreams", where Sao
Paulo (Brazilians) defeated Werder Bremen (Germans) to lift the Manchester United
Premier Cup trophy. The score was 3:1.

Even though Salgoacars finished 20th. I must say that they put in their very best
despite the odds of playing against very superior teams. Our boys however, are
very pleased with this exposure at the international level as it provided them a
platform to measure their skills, passion and determination against the very best of
peers. Congratulations to our young boys for making it this far and definitely
putting Goa in the map of international events.

Francisco Bruto da Costa. (the coach) was all praise for the Management of the
Salgaocar Club who provides all facilities to their members for promoting talent at
the grass root level. The cooperation and support from parents, schools and
officials creates a very congenial atmosphere for development of this sport. (ENDS)

SILVER STAR - UK - MOBILE DIABETES UNIT LAUNCHED IN GOA



At a simple ceremony this hot Sunday afternoon 25th October, 2009 the first of its kind Mobile Diabetes Unit MDU of Silver Star a UK based charitable institution (www.silverstaruk.org) was launched in the 25th State of India, Goa by the world acclaimed film star Amitabh Bachchan at the Goa Hyundai showroom cum works campus at Nagoa Verna Plateau Salcete Goa India.

Speaking on the ocassion the Guest of Honour, Mr Bachchan 67 was indeed privileged to have the honour to launch the first of its kind unit in the State of Goa. He was pleased that the MP United Kingdom Mr Keith Vaz has taken the initiative to launch the third such unit in India and was happy that it was in Goa. To him Goa had a special place in his heart. He remembered his first visit to then Union Territiory in 1969 on the sets of the film Saat Hindustani and thereafter on several ocassions. After his accident which proved near fatal while shooting for the film, "Coolie" he has had more ocassions to be in the ICU then outside, he said. He was alarmed at the fact that almost every 6th Indian is a diabetic and assuming that every 6th person in the world is an Indian India could well be designated as the world capital of diabetes. Mr Bachchan requested the CM of Goa to use his services for any social cause in Goa and he would be most willing to participate in the same or contribute to whatever cause be dear to Goa and Goans.

He wished that many well wishers would come forward to contribute to the growth of Silver Star in India. Answering a query of a journalist Mr Bachchan admitted the fact that just one MDU would not suffice for the State of Goa but he was confident that with the contribution of others more such units would come up in Goa. He himself annouced a donation of Rs.11 lacs (his birth day 11th) on the ocassion as his personal contribution to the cause.

Speaking further about his love for Goa he thanked the Goans for the love and affection showered on him and his family while he was in Breach Candy Mumbai and during times his family went through bad phases. He singled out Ms Zarina Fernandes an employee of the Syndicate Bank a native of Porvorim amidst the audience who was his oldest fan in Goa. (Ms Fernandes stood up to acknowledge the handsome praise from the filmstar she got herself photographed at the request of this writer )

He was again all praise for the organisational acumen of 21 years long MP from Leicester UK Mr Keith Vaz whose parents hail from Calangute Bardez Goa. Mr Bachchan recalled the tremendous ovation he received in Leicester during his visit to UK , and attributed all this to the youthful MP.

Earlier the UK MP Mr Vaz, informed the gathering that little did he suspect that he himself would be a victim of Diabetes type II when he had gone for a casual diagnostic test at his hometown in Leicester UK. Ofcourse his mother died young as a diabetic he said. His love for Goa made him set up the third MDU in India specially in Goa, said the youthful MP who was born in Aden and informed that his wife Maria hails from Velim Salcete Goa . Speaking to this writer his wife Ms Vaz informed that they have a home also in Betalbatim Goa. He was indeed alarmed at the fact that 14 million people in India have been diagonised to be suffering from diabetes Type II and the undetected ones could be double or even more. He was full praise for the Chief Guest Mr Bachchaan and indeed had a special message to convey to Mr Bachchaan from the British PM Mr Gordon Brown who specifically requested him to convey his belated best wishes on his(Amitabhs) birthday (11/10/ 1942)to the best actor on the planet admired for his basic humanity and charitable contributions. This was greeted by a thunderous applaud. Mr Vaz thanked the Government of Goa the elected representatives and the Health Department for all the help rendered to his charity mission via the Silver Star in Goa.

The Chief Minister Mr Digamber Kamat, thanked the UK MP Mr Vaz and the film star Amitabh Bachchan for launching the MDUnit in India and making Goa the first state in India to have this unit. He recalled that his Government had indeed launched the free insulin kit just a day before in North Goa and promised all help for the success of the Silver Star charity activities in Goa.

Capt. K Nair 86 an entrepreneur in the Hotel industry an owner of Leela Goa a native of the south Indian state of Kerala a freedom fighter at the age of 13 years spelt out his love for Goa when he opened up a resort in Cavelossim on an area of 75 acres and employing over 1000 in Goa. He has fallen in love with Goa and would never leave this place he said.

Award Mania

Award Mania

By Adelmo Fernandes


Recently Goa won the Best Small State award for citizens’ security at the IBN Diamond State Award presentation ceremony, organised by IBN7- Outlook. Ironically, this award has come at a time when the state has seen a spate of robberies. Houses in Benaulim, Nuvem, Colva and Margao have been burgled. The worst-hit were the jewellery shops in the commercial capital. A jeweller was even waylaid and robbed of valuables and cash. Then there was the bomb blast in Margao which, because of divine intervention, did not end in a major cataclysm, though it had the potential of causing damage of catastrophic proportions.
As a matter of fact, it was reported that Goa won six of the eight awards up for grabs. These included awards in the category of health care and environment among others. It was reported that at Cansaulim patients were advised not to stay in the hospital at night because the toilets were not functioning. As regards the environment, the Goa Government seems unable to find a solution to the garbage problem which is raising a stink.
This brings us to a very important question. How did Goa get these awards? Well, my guess is as good as yours. This was probably possible because there was absolutely no competition in the small state category. By the way, how many states fall in this bracket? Was Goa the only state in this category? Probably.
Be that as it may, Goa should not lose heart, given that an international figure also got an award which many felt was one award too big, too early. US President Barack Hussein Obama won the Nobel Prize for Peace for the year 2009. This startled not only the world but Obama himself.


But there is a positive side to winning awards you do not deserve. The award lays down a standard which the recipient will be forced to live up to. So the Goa Government will have to pull up its socks as far as citizens’ security, health care, environment, etc, is concerned. Whether those in power will do it is the multi-billion-rupee question.
Awards are always welcome. An award could be in cash or by way of a trophy. This is invariably accompanied by a certificate. Many may consider a certificate more important than the award itself. Armed with a certificate of excellence, it always easier to get that that prestigious job placement. We have been receiving awards right from our school days, be it in academics or sports. It is a prestigious thing to win an award. Many homes display the awards their children have won in the showcase in the living room. Awards are not meant to be kept hidden. There are meant for people to see. The print and the electronic media has joined in the bandwagon by announcing awards in various fields. We have awards in the field of entertainment, science and technology, and business among others.
But then, like everything else in life, there is a darker side to awards. Choosing a deserving candidate can be very tricky. Several factors could have an influence while choosing a candidate. Having godfathers in the right places can help in ‘achieving’ an award. Money power also plays an important role. It could be said that some awards come with a price tag. In such a situation, undeserving candidates hog the limelight, while deserving candidates are left to lick their wounds.
Here are some awards which the state of Goa would well deserve:
1. An award for the politically most unstable state in the country. We have lost count of how many Chief Ministers we have had over the past decade. Politics in our civic bodies is a game of merry-go-round (more the merrier) as there is rotation of chairpersons after every six months. Even then a chairperson could be shown the door even before his six months in office are over.
2. Goa is a deserving candidate for road infrastructure. Our roads can at best be described as more of dirt and less of road.
3. Goa could well get an award for building bridges which do not last for more than a decade.
I’d better stop here, as the list seems endless.
