I would sum up the whole episode with the following Konkani proverb:

"APLEM GHOR, SOTHEAN MOR/APLEM GHOR, HAGON BHOR!"

Dear Bosco,
A pet pomenarian dog may think it belongs to the royalty when comparing
itself with a wild tiger or a puma. A sled-dog knows nothing about freedom;
it knows everything about being well fed...and having a blanket in the
kennel during the snowy winter. It may even boast about its kennel club
membership and the municipal licence token on its collar. The poor tiger has
none of these trappings. It couldn't care less .

To: > From: "Bosco D'Mello" bospam at canada.com
To most of us, in Canada and other countries, it is truly heaven here;
compared to the unending power failures, the corrupt politicians and
Govt
Officers, in Goa;
NO APARTHEID in 'Eating Places': like non vege and vege; no
"Halal" and "Kosher". What a wonderful World; free of all sorts of
encumbrances
Nasci,
Good for you.....I wish you all the best in "heaven". .
you've learnt a lot with terms like 'Halal' and 'Kosher'
which you never heard of when you were in Mumbai.
The rest of your post is pitiable, tch-tch-tch, as you have not spared any
effort to tell us the various trappings you enjoy while the majority of
Goans in
Goa have to struggle to make ends meet.
The more I read your post, the more I am inclined to salute Goans in Goa
!!!
Best wishes - Bosco

What do you say of a man who sits seggregated in a "Smokers" or "Non

pedigree??

To each , his own.

Viva Goa.

Dear Bosco,
A pet pomenarian dog may think it belongs to the
royalty when comparing
itself with a wild tiger or a puma. A sled-dog knows
nothing about freedom;
it knows everything about being well fed...and
having a blanket in the
kennel during the snowy winter. It may even boast
about its kennel club
membership and the municipal licence token on its
collar. The poor tiger has
none of these trappings. It couldn't care less .
True, the tiger may not encounter some of the
trappings of a pet pomenarian or a sled dog. However,
neither animal has to worry about the possibility of
extinction. The pet pomenarian and sled dog do not
have to worry about a poacher hunting them for their
hides as in the case of the Benglai Tiger. There are
only about 6000 of them left in the wild. The irony
here is that because their are so few of them left,
their pelts command a higher price in the black
market. The skin trade is big business in China. The
pelts are sold for decorating walls and floors and
collars on coats.

Like their Bengali brother, the Sumatran tiger could
be extinct in the near future. There are only 500
tigers left in Sumatra and if poaching continues
unabated, we will no longer see this animal prowling
the jungles and streams. Local people use the bones
from the tigers for medicines, and make jewellery out
of the claws. And unlike the comforts enjoyed by the
domesticated pomeranian and sled dog, its habitat is
in danger too because of illegal logging.

And if that isn't bad, expensive restaurants in
Malaysia have started offering 'wildlife meat' on
their menus in spite ofthe fact that there are only
about 650 tigers left in the Malaysian peninsula.

So as you can see, the Pomeranian tiger finds itself
"cornered" in it's own habitat.

Bests,

TTT
