4 RAPES IN LAST 11 DAYS: Actions speak louder than words. And the actions of

aged 7, 4, 16 and 15 have been raped in the last 11 days, 13 minors have
been abused in a little over two months. Both the alleged brute rapists and
their unfortunate victims are getting younger. Seven of the accused are
below 30 and four of the little girls whose innocence was blacked out were
less than ten years old. Does a single police officer even know these facts?
Or care? No major city has been spared. The victims are from Panaji, Margao,

Saldanha has stressed the need to take up the cause for development of
Konkani with all seriousness and dedication. Konkani, he said, apart from

and therefore each one of us must learn to read and write Konkani language
for its enrichment. Addressing the gathering on the occasion of the 42nd
anniversary of Konkani Bhasha Mandal, Goa, in Margao on September 30,
Saldanha asked Konkani Bhasha Mandal to publish Konkani books of other
languages incorporating the history and other information on Goa for the
