From the rambling 'Reddo'.!
Summer is here once again, and so are the flies! Just the other day, I was
walking across Collins Street in the city, and someone waved. Stupid me,
thought it was just the Aussie wave, but then I heard someone call out my
name. Say 'John', 'Tom' or 'Joe', and they are just names, but say mine in
true Goan style and you are going to have ears turned! Which is exactly what
happened that day. I looked back, and saw someone from my good old days in
Goa-someone with a rather familiar face, smiling and happy to see me. And
exactly at that moment, I realised that I may be having a problem! The face
was familiar, but God, the name! I just could not remember the name, What an
embarrassment. To my good luck, this lovely face just walked pass me and at
this point in time I realised that I was not the only Sebastian in
Melbourne!!!

So who was the other guy? Well, I just hope this other 'Sebastian' does read
this newsletter, and does introduce himself to us. I for one do feel good,
pleased and happy to meet other Goans here in Melbourne, and I am sure most
of you guys too do the same. So come over mate, say hello, and maybe we
could share a peg of good old caju feni together at my place. With the
elections in a few more days, the tension is slowly building. I can just
sense it, and can predict that we are going to have a new Government, but I
just wonder, how new!!! While we are a minority here in Australia, I am
looking forward to the day when our very own Goan community will have an
elected representative in Parliament. That would be so nice.

This time my friend Salus has my full support with his plans to arrange
sponsors for some Goan youth to make the trip to Australia for World Youth
Day 2008, at Sydney next year. Do help in what ever way you can. Like they
say, 'every cent counts' It would make a lasting impression on the lucky
young man or woman and I think it is our duty to help make someone's dream
come true!!!

Recad sogleank!
