VIVA SAO JOAO: The feast of St John, more popularly known as Sao Joao, was
celebrated with the traditional pomp and piety. Even the dry weather and
absence of heavy showers hardly affected the celebrations as the revelers
found a way out. Many took the usual leap in the well or a nearby water
body.It was a heady mix of pomp and fun as artistically decorated boats
participated in the boat festival at Siolim. (GT)

GOA CELEBRATES SAO JOAO FEST
(http://www.goacom.com/goanow/2004/jun/SaoJoao.htm)

"I AM EITHER LOVED OR HATED": ".I am either loved or hated. Even in IIT,
when I was a very popular mess secretary, I reduced the mess bills
massively. At times, some people loved me and others with vested interests
hated me. Those who execute and deliver create enemies. When you take
decisions, all your decisions cannot be popular." (Chief Minister Manohar
Parrikar in an interview with Sujay Gupta, Gomantak Times)

ALLOCATED POWER TO BE RESTORED: The Union Power Minister, Mr PM Sayeed,
yesterday assured the State government of restoring the allocated power from
the Southern grid. The Union government on June 23 decided to cut 25 per
cent allocation of power to Goa from the Southern Grid (Ramagundan) while
re-allocating the power to other states. (NT)

VOCATIONAL EDUCATION: Revamping of vocational education in Goa is on the
anvil, as the State government proposes to raise the standard of this form
of education and simultaneously attract students to it. This process is
being undertaken after a period of almost 15 years and based on a report
submitted by a review committee tow years ago. (H)

"STOP KONKANI MOVEMENT FROM TURNING IN A CESSPOOL": 'Sunaparant' editor
Sandesh Prabhudessai yesterday (June 24) gave a clarion call to widen the
scope of the Konkani movement while cautioning Konkani lovers at the same
time. "Failure to implement this step on a war footing will transform the
entire Konkani movement into a cesspool," he said at a function organised by
the Konkani Bhasha Mandal to commemorate the 127th birth anniversary of
Shenoi Goembab. Prabdudesai observed, "Goan politicians have used Konkani
language to feather their own nest and the Goan sons-of-the-soil must guard
against such elements." (GT)

NO CENTRE-STAGE FOR TIATR IN PANAJI: Hundreds of tiatr lovers in North Goa,
specially Panaji and adjoining villages, are likely to be without their
usual weekend entertainment. With the closure of the Kala Academy, there is
no suitable alternative, they say. Prince Jacob experimented by holding a
show at Menezes Braganza Hall. But the response was poor, according to
sources. (GT)

GAIN FOR MARATHI ART LOVERS: The loss of Panaji citizens will be a gain for
the Marathi art lovers in rural areas. The cultural czars of the Marathi
stage have decided to move the state to the mofussil areas, specially Ponda
and Curchorem. (GT)

SALCETE PANCHAYATS NO MATCH FOR REST! Salcete may boast of having 30
panchayats, but sadly, none of them were found eligible for this year's
State-level awards instituted by the Director of Panchayats for overall
performance. Not a single panchayat from Salcete figures in the first three
places in all the four categories of panchayats. (H)

GOA HAS EXCELLENT R&D ENVIRONMENT: Goa provides an excellent environment for
research and development of industries for pharmaceuticals and diagnostics
alike. However, considering its small population and hence smaller
potential, it is imperative that industries have to look regionally,
nationally or internationally if they have to succeed. (Deepak Tripathi,
Direct of Tulip, in an interview with NT)

NABBED: Francis Baptista Rodrigues of Guddem-Siolim, who allegedly stole
cash and whisky bottles from Krishna Bar at Raim-Siolim, was nabbed on June
24 by a police patrol. (H)

ROMAN MUSHROOM DISCOVERED: Mycologists from the botany department of Goa
University have reported a very rare and beautiful species of the famous
European mushroom - the "Roman imperial mushroom" - from the banks of Ragada
river in Sanguem taluka. This species was reported in India only from two
other sites, from Khasi hills, Assam, in 1856 and Baroda, Gujarat, in 1948.
The species was identified by mushroom researcher and one of the principal
investigators Dr Nandkumar Kamat, who has extensively mapped the mushroom
biodiversity of Goa since 1986. (GT)

HINTERLAND TOURISM: The new Tourism and Sports Minister, Mr Mathany
Saldanha, has the vision of shift the focus of tourism from the coastal belt
to urban areas and the hinterland. (NT)

NO NONSENSE MAN! Tourism Minister Matanhy Saldanha yesterday warned that he
was totally against fanaticism of any kind in the tourism sector and would
try to promote it by creating better infrastructure in order to increase the
staying period of tourists in the state.He said that the old house of the
great Goan, Abade Faria, situated at Candolim, would be converted into a
museum depicting his life. "I will also try to project the Pinto revolt,
which according to him, was the war of independence in the country," he
said. (GT)

TOP COP WITH A DIFFERENCE: Amod K Kanth promises to be a Director General of
Police with a difference. Kanth said, "I am completely for giving all
information. Knowledge of power and information is the people's privilege.
People should know whatever is happening. In a democracy, in my opinion,
information is a fundamental right. Democracy without information is no
governance. 90 per cent of policing will be transparent. Only 10 per cent
will not be shared at all because of its sensitive nature." (GT)

SERAULIM GETS FOURTH SARPANCH: Seraulim panchayat achieved a dubious record
of sorts on June 24. The panchayat got its fourth sarpanch in little less
than two years-and-a-half when the panchayat members elected Tiburcio Gomes
as the new head. (H)

PROFESSIONALS TO CHECK CRIME: The new Director-General of Police has come up
with a novel system to check crime in the State and thus improve
police-public relations. Explaining the novel idea to reporters, he said the
system entails joining of hands by the police with social workers, advocates
and doctors to check crime. "The police, social workers, advocates and
doctors would reach the spot of the crime and work independently and would
submit reports to the investigating agency," he said. (NT)

TRIPLETS DELIVERED: The ever short-staffed Asilo Hospital, Mapusa, reported
a rare occurrence on Friday last. Ujwala Gaokar, a 24-year-old resident from
Mauling, Bicholim, delivered triplets, her first children on June 18. She
delivered two males and a female. (H)

AS CSW FLEE: Following the demolition of the cubicles at the erstwhile Baina
red-light area, the fate of many NGOs now seems to hang in balance. (Gerard
Fernandes in Herald)

TO MONITOR SOFT DRINKS: In a move that will delay the framing of standards
for carbonated water and soft drinks, a government sub-committee on
pesticide residues yesterday decided to set up another expert group to
monitor soft drinks throughout the country. (GT)

74-YEAR-OLD MISSING: Jose Mary (Vincent) D'Souza, resident of
Poitomado-Cuncolim, is reported to be missing from 24 May. (GT)

KSHAMA TOPS: Kshama Damodar Gaitonde stood first in the final year BDS
(dental) examination held by the Goa University for the year 2003-2004. She
has achieved highest marks in Periodontics, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
She completed her primary education from Vidya Bhuwan, Konkani Bhasha
Mandal, secondary from M&N English High School, higher secondary education
from Chowgule College, Margao, and thereafter joined the Goa dental College.
Kshama is the eldest daughter of Damodar (Subhash) Gaitonde and Rajana from
Ambaji, Fatorda. (GT)

NARROW VICTORY FOR USC: United Sports Club, Seraulim, got the better of
fighting Ambelim Sports Club 1-0 to sail into the quarter finals of the 19th

and played at St John Baptist Dando grounds. (GT)

VIVA SAO JOAO: The feast of St John, more popularly known as Sao Joao, was
celebrated with the traditional pomp and piety. Even the dry weather and
absence of heavy showers hardly affected the celebrations as the revelers
found a way out. Many took the usual leap in the well or a nearby water
body.It was a heady mix of pomp and fun as artistically decorated boats
participated in the boat festival at Siolim. (GT)

GOA CELEBRATES SAO JOAO FEST
(http://www.goacom.com/goanow/2004/jun/SaoJoao.htm)

"I AM EITHER LOVED OR HATED": ".I am either loved or hated. Even in IIT,
when I was a very popular mess secretary, I reduced the mess bills
massively. At times, some people loved me and others with vested interests
hated me. Those who execute and deliver create enemies. When you take
decisions, all your decisions cannot be popular." (Chief Minister Manohar
Parrikar in an interview with Sujay Gupta, Gomantak Times)

ALLOCATED POWER TO BE RESTORED: The Union Power Minister, Mr PM Sayeed,
yesterday assured the State government of restoring the allocated power from
the Southern grid. The Union government on June 23 decided to cut 25 per
cent allocation of power to Goa from the Southern Grid (Ramagundan) while
re-allocating the power to other states. (NT)

VOCATIONAL EDUCATION: Revamping of vocational education in Goa is on the
anvil, as the State government proposes to raise the standard of this form
of education and simultaneously attract students to it. This process is
being undertaken after a period of almost 15 years and based on a report
submitted by a review committee tow years ago. (H)

"STOP KONKANI MOVEMENT FROM TURNING IN A CESSPOOL": 'Sunaparant' editor
Sandesh Prabhudessai yesterday (June 24) gave a clarion call to widen the
scope of the Konkani movement while cautioning Konkani lovers at the same
time. "Failure to implement this step on a war footing will transform the
entire Konkani movement into a cesspool," he said at a function organised by
the Konkani Bhasha Mandal to commemorate the 127th birth anniversary of
Shenoi Goembab. Prabdudesai observed, "Goan politicians have used Konkani
language to feather their own nest and the Goan sons-of-the-soil must guard
against such elements." (GT)

NO CENTRE-STAGE FOR TIATR IN PANAJI: Hundreds of tiatr lovers in North Goa,
specially Panaji and adjoining villages, are likely to be without their
usual weekend entertainment. With the closure of the Kala Academy, there is
no suitable alternative, they say. Prince Jacob experimented by holding a
show at Menezes Braganza Hall. But the response was poor, according to
sources. (GT)

GAIN FOR MARATHI ART LOVERS: The loss of Panaji citizens will be a gain for
the Marathi art lovers in rural areas. The cultural czars of the Marathi
stage have decided to move the state to the mofussil areas, specially Ponda
and Curchorem. (GT)

SALCETE PANCHAYATS NO MATCH FOR REST! Salcete may boast of having 30
panchayats, but sadly, none of them were found eligible for this year's
State-level awards instituted by the Director of Panchayats for overall
performance. Not a single panchayat from Salcete figures in the first three
places in all the four categories of panchayats. (H)

GOA HAS EXCELLENT R&D ENVIRONMENT: Goa provides an excellent environment for
research and development of industries for pharmaceuticals and diagnostics
alike. However, considering its small population and hence smaller
potential, it is imperative that industries have to look regionally,
nationally or internationally if they have to succeed. (Deepak Tripathi,
Direct of Tulip, in an interview with NT)

NABBED: Francis Baptista Rodrigues of Guddem-Siolim, who allegedly stole
cash and whisky bottles from Krishna Bar at Raim-Siolim, was nabbed on June
24 by a police patrol. (H)

ROMAN MUSHROOM DISCOVERED: Mycologists from the botany department of Goa
University have reported a very rare and beautiful species of the famous
European mushroom - the "Roman imperial mushroom" - from the banks of Ragada
river in Sanguem taluka. This species was reported in India only from two
other sites, from Khasi hills, Assam, in 1856 and Baroda, Gujarat, in 1948.
The species was identified by mushroom researcher and one of the principal
investigators Dr Nandkumar Kamat, who has extensively mapped the mushroom
biodiversity of Goa since 1986. (GT)

HINTERLAND TOURISM: The new Tourism and Sports Minister, Mr Mathany
Saldanha, has the vision of shift the focus of tourism from the coastal belt
to urban areas and the hinterland. (NT)

NO NONSENSE MAN! Tourism Minister Matanhy Saldanha yesterday warned that he
was totally against fanaticism of any kind in the tourism sector and would
try to promote it by creating better infrastructure in order to increase the
staying period of tourists in the state.He said that the old house of the
great Goan, Abade Faria, situated at Candolim, would be converted into a
museum depicting his life. "I will also try to project the Pinto revolt,
which according to him, was the war of independence in the country," he
said. (GT)

TOP COP WITH A DIFFERENCE: Amod K Kanth promises to be a Director General of
Police with a difference. Kanth said, "I am completely for giving all
information. Knowledge of power and information is the people's privilege.
People should know whatever is happening. In a democracy, in my opinion,
information is a fundamental right. Democracy without information is no
governance. 90 per cent of policing will be transparent. Only 10 per cent
will not be shared at all because of its sensitive nature." (GT)

SERAULIM GETS FOURTH SARPANCH: Seraulim panchayat achieved a dubious record
of sorts on June 24. The panchayat got its fourth sarpanch in little less
than two years-and-a-half when the panchayat members elected Tiburcio Gomes
as the new head. (H)

PROFESSIONALS TO CHECK CRIME: The new Director-General of Police has come up
with a novel system to check crime in the State and thus improve
police-public relations. Explaining the novel idea to reporters, he said the
system entails joining of hands by the police with social workers, advocates
and doctors to check crime. "The police, social workers, advocates and
doctors would reach the spot of the crime and work independently and would
submit reports to the investigating agency," he said. (NT)

TRIPLETS DELIVERED: The ever short-staffed Asilo Hospital, Mapusa, reported
a rare occurrence on Friday last. Ujwala Gaokar, a 24-year-old resident from
Mauling, Bicholim, delivered triplets, her first children on June 18. She
delivered two males and a female. (H)

AS CSW FLEE: Following the demolition of the cubicles at the erstwhile Baina
red-light area, the fate of many NGOs now seems to hang in balance. (Gerard
Fernandes in Herald)

TO MONITOR SOFT DRINKS: In a move that will delay the framing of standards
for carbonated water and soft drinks, a government sub-committee on
pesticide residues yesterday decided to set up another expert group to
monitor soft drinks throughout the country. (GT)

74-YEAR-OLD MISSING: Jose Mary (Vincent) D'Souza, resident of
Poitomado-Cuncolim, is reported to be missing from 24 May. (GT)

KSHAMA TOPS: Kshama Damodar Gaitonde stood first in the final year BDS
(dental) examination held by the Goa University for the year 2003-2004. She
has achieved highest marks in Periodontics, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
She completed her primary education from Vidya Bhuwan, Konkani Bhasha
Mandal, secondary from M&N English High School, higher secondary education
from Chowgule College, Margao, and thereafter joined the Goa dental College.
Kshama is the eldest daughter of Damodar (Subhash) Gaitonde and Rajana from
Ambaji, Fatorda. (GT)

NARROW VICTORY FOR USC: United Sports Club, Seraulim, got the better of
fighting Ambelim Sports Club 1-0 to sail into the quarter finals of the 19th

VIVA SAO JOAO: The feast of St John, more popularly known as Sao Joao, was
celebrated with the traditional pomp and piety. Even the dry weather and
absence of heavy showers hardly affected the celebrations as the revelers
found a way out. Many took the usual leap in the well or a nearby water
body.It was a heady mix of pomp and fun as artistically decorated boats
participated in the boat festival at Siolim. (GT)

GOA CELEBRATES SAO JOAO FEST
(http://www.goacom.com/goanow/2004/jun/SaoJoao.htm)

"I AM EITHER LOVED OR HATED": ".I am either loved or hated. Even in IIT,
when I was a very popular mess secretary, I reduced the mess bills
massively. At times, some people loved me and others with vested interests
hated me. Those who execute and deliver create enemies. When you take
decisions, all your decisions cannot be popular." (Chief Minister Manohar
Parrikar in an interview with Sujay Gupta, Gomantak Times)

ALLOCATED POWER TO BE RESTORED: The Union Power Minister, Mr PM Sayeed,
yesterday assured the State government of restoring the allocated power from
the Southern grid. The Union government on June 23 decided to cut 25 per
cent allocation of power to Goa from the Southern Grid (Ramagundan) while
re-allocating the power to other states. (NT)

VOCATIONAL EDUCATION: Revamping of vocational education in Goa is on the
anvil, as the State government proposes to raise the standard of this form
of education and simultaneously attract students to it. This process is
being undertaken after a period of almost 15 years and based on a report
submitted by a review committee tow years ago. (H)

"STOP KONKANI MOVEMENT FROM TURNING IN A CESSPOOL": 'Sunaparant' editor
Sandesh Prabhudessai yesterday (June 24) gave a clarion call to widen the
scope of the Konkani movement while cautioning Konkani lovers at the same
time. "Failure to implement this step on a war footing will transform the
entire Konkani movement into a cesspool," he said at a function organised by
the Konkani Bhasha Mandal to commemorate the 127th birth anniversary of
Shenoi Goembab. Prabdudesai observed, "Goan politicians have used Konkani
language to feather their own nest and the Goan sons-of-the-soil must guard
against such elements." (GT)

NO CENTRE-STAGE FOR TIATR IN PANAJI: Hundreds of tiatr lovers in North Goa,
specially Panaji and adjoining villages, are likely to be without their
usual weekend entertainment. With the closure of the Kala Academy, there is
no suitable alternative, they say. Prince Jacob experimented by holding a
show at Menezes Braganza Hall. But the response was poor, according to
sources. (GT)

GAIN FOR MARATHI ART LOVERS: The loss of Panaji citizens will be a gain for
the Marathi art lovers in rural areas. The cultural czars of the Marathi
stage have decided to move the state to the mofussil areas, specially Ponda
and Curchorem. (GT)

SALCETE PANCHAYATS NO MATCH FOR REST! Salcete may boast of having 30
panchayats, but sadly, none of them were found eligible for this year's
State-level awards instituted by the Director of Panchayats for overall
performance. Not a single panchayat from Salcete figures in the first three
places in all the four categories of panchayats. (H)

GOA HAS EXCELLENT R&D ENVIRONMENT: Goa provides an excellent environment for
research and development of industries for pharmaceuticals and diagnostics
alike. However, considering its small population and hence smaller
potential, it is imperative that industries have to look regionally,
nationally or internationally if they have to succeed. (Deepak Tripathi,
Direct of Tulip, in an interview with NT)

NABBED: Francis Baptista Rodrigues of Guddem-Siolim, who allegedly stole
cash and whisky bottles from Krishna Bar at Raim-Siolim, was nabbed on June
24 by a police patrol. (H)

ROMAN MUSHROOM DISCOVERED: Mycologists from the botany department of Goa
University have reported a very rare and beautiful species of the famous
European mushroom - the "Roman imperial mushroom" - from the banks of Ragada
river in Sanguem taluka. This species was reported in India only from two
other sites, from Khasi hills, Assam, in 1856 and Baroda, Gujarat, in 1948.
The species was identified by mushroom researcher and one of the principal
investigators Dr Nandkumar Kamat, who has extensively mapped the mushroom
biodiversity of Goa since 1986. (GT)

HINTERLAND TOURISM: The new Tourism and Sports Minister, Mr Mathany
Saldanha, has the vision of shift the focus of tourism from the coastal belt
to urban areas and the hinterland. (NT)

NO NONSENSE MAN! Tourism Minister Matanhy Saldanha yesterday warned that he
was totally against fanaticism of any kind in the tourism sector and would
try to promote it by creating better infrastructure in order to increase the
staying period of tourists in the state.He said that the old house of the
great Goan, Abade Faria, situated at Candolim, would be converted into a
museum depicting his life. "I will also try to project the Pinto revolt,
which according to him, was the war of independence in the country," he
said. (GT)

TOP COP WITH A DIFFERENCE: Amod K Kanth promises to be a Director General of
Police with a difference. Kanth said, "I am completely for giving all
information. Knowledge of power and information is the people's privilege.
People should know whatever is happening. In a democracy, in my opinion,
information is a fundamental right. Democracy without information is no
governance. 90 per cent of policing will be transparent. Only 10 per cent
will not be shared at all because of its sensitive nature." (GT)

SERAULIM GETS FOURTH SARPANCH: Seraulim panchayat achieved a dubious record
of sorts on June 24. The panchayat got its fourth sarpanch in little less
than two years-and-a-half when the panchayat members elected Tiburcio Gomes
as the new head. (H)

PROFESSIONALS TO CHECK CRIME: The new Director-General of Police has come up
with a novel system to check crime in the State and thus improve
police-public relations. Explaining the novel idea to reporters, he said the
system entails joining of hands by the police with social workers, advocates
and doctors to check crime. "The police, social workers, advocates and
doctors would reach the spot of the crime and work independently and would
submit reports to the investigating agency," he said. (NT)

TRIPLETS DELIVERED: The ever short-staffed Asilo Hospital, Mapusa, reported
a rare occurrence on Friday last. Ujwala Gaokar, a 24-year-old resident from
Mauling, Bicholim, delivered triplets, her first children on June 18. She
delivered two males and a female. (H)

AS CSW FLEE: Following the demolition of the cubicles at the erstwhile Baina
red-light area, the fate of many NGOs now seems to hang in balance. (Gerard
Fernandes in Herald)

TO MONITOR SOFT DRINKS: In a move that will delay the framing of standards
for carbonated water and soft drinks, a government sub-committee on
pesticide residues yesterday decided to set up another expert group to
monitor soft drinks throughout the country. (GT)

74-YEAR-OLD MISSING: Jose Mary (Vincent) D'Souza, resident of
Poitomado-Cuncolim, is reported to be missing from 24 May. (GT)

KSHAMA TOPS: Kshama Damodar Gaitonde stood first in the final year BDS
(dental) examination held by the Goa University for the year 2003-2004. She
has achieved highest marks in Periodontics, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
She completed her primary education from Vidya Bhuwan, Konkani Bhasha
Mandal, secondary from M&N English High School, higher secondary education
from Chowgule College, Margao, and thereafter joined the Goa dental College.
Kshama is the eldest daughter of Damodar (Subhash) Gaitonde and Rajana from
Ambaji, Fatorda. (GT)
