CM ADMITS LEAKAGE OF SSC PAPERS: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar admitted
in the Goa Assembly the 'leakage' of some SSC papers and said
investigations are in progress to trace the main culprit. Replying to the
issue raised by Congress MLA Agnelo Fernandes during Zero Hour, Parrikar
said there was enough documentary evidence to prove that it was a fit case
for a thorough investigation. (GT)

WAR BRINGS JOB OPPORTUNITIES: The Mumbai-based Royal Consultants is
apparently on a recruiting spree on behalf of the Kuwait Catering Company,
which has been hired by the coalition forces for back-end and supply
functions for rehabilitation and relief work in war devastated Iraq. The
salaries are also attractive, ranging from 100 Kuwait Dinars (Rs.15,000) to
300 Kuwait Dinars (Rs.45,000), which is comparable with salaries offered
for similar short-term assignments abroad. (H)

HELP FOR DOG-BITE VICTIM: In response to the goanetters' queries regarding
the dog-bite case, Mr Roland Martins, Co-ordinator of Goa Desc,
(goadesc at goatelecom.com) has already activated "the people at the local
level who could co-ordinate the assistance that you would like to provide
to the family of Mrs Laxmi Bhosle, the victim of the dog-bite case. Mr.
Olencio Fernandes (mailto:olencio at goatelecom.com), the Convenor of Nuvem
Civic and Consumer Forum, can be contacted in this regard. The Forum and
the people in the neighbourhood are in the forefront to get justice in this
matter and are also pursuing the Case with the concerned authorities". (GoaNOW)

DOUBTS OVER ZP PROJECTS: Can a sizeable chunk of the developmental works
undertaken by Zilla Panchayat cost only Rs.15,000 each? The Opposition
raised suspicions at this 'magic figure'. It was evident from the answer
provided by the Panchayat Minister Manohar Azgaonkar that out of over 450
development projects in North Goa, at least 200 of them were tendered at an
estimated cost of Rs.15,000 each. (GT)

SPEAKER DEFENDS DELIMITATION COMMITTEE: Even as the National Delimitation
Commission is scheduled to a hold a consultation with associate members on
formulating a working paper for delimitation of the 40 Assembly
constituencies on 12 April, Speaker Vishwas Satarkar defended the formation
of the present State level committee. (GT)

SARS DETECTION: While the Goa Medical College Hospital at Bambolim is
gearing up to tackle the SARS threat, the actual detection of the deadly
virus could take at least one week after a suspected patient is admitted to
the SARS isolation room at the GMC. This is because the GMC does not have
the requisite facilities to conduct tests, to ascertain if the patient is
affected by the atypical pneumonia
and the samples of blood and sputum
would have to be sent to the National Institute of Virology at Pune and the
National Institute of Communicable Diseases for conducting tests. (H)

WOMAN COMMITS SUICIDE: Deepshri Dinkar Naik, a 36-yea-old woman from
Naikwada-Mandrem, committed suicide in her house on Tuesday morning, while
the family members were away. Her body was founding hanging from the roof
of the house. She was married to Dinkar in 1997. The cause behind the
suicide is yet to be ascertained. (H)

BEATEN TO DEATH: Ranganath Vithal Bhinge (51) from Talauli-Ponda, went to
collect cashews and mangoes from a property in Narve-Bicholim, but did not
return alive. He was fatally assaulted by a mundkar and his three sons
after they suspected him of trespassing into the property. (H)

POWER DEPT: Power Minister Digambar Kamat yesterday stated that the
Electricity department would be structured so that the staff strength would
be increased to ensure fast and efficient service to the consumers. Thrust
would be laid on quality, reliable and uninterrupted power so as to make
Goa the first model state in the country, he said. (GT)

MODERN ARMS FOR COPS: If the modernization proposal for the year 2003-04 is
anything to go by, the cops are definitely preparing for a major onslaught
on terrorist activities. The proposal, worth more than Rs.650 lakh, reads
like a list from a Hollywood action flick with allocations for high-powered
7.62 mm rifles, sub-machine guns, Russian-made AK-47 assault rifles and
long range sniper rifles, besides assorted ammunition. The police are also
planning to acquire metal detectors, night-vision devices, hi-tech
binoculars, digital and video cameras. The traffic police will be better
equipped and more potent force with hand-held traffic radars and
alcoholmeters being procured. (GT)

STOLEN FROM POLICE STATION VICINITY: A motor cycle, parked by Sandip
Karambolkar of Haveli-Ponda in a parking lot barely metres from the Ponda
police station, was stolen on Wednesday in broad daylight. (H)

CROSS DESECRATED: A marble cross was smashed to pieces by miscreants in the
property of Mount Carmel Chapel at Tisk-Ponda on Wednesday morning.

CELL WHILE RIDING: Roaming with a trendy mobile cell phone might prove
costly, especially while one is riding a two-wheeler. For, talking on the
cell phone while riding is now regarded as rash and negligent driving by
the traffic police, entailing a fine of Rs.600. (H)

CASHEW NUT PRODUCTION TO RISE: Cashew nut production in Goa is expected to
touch around 23,000 tonnes this year, compared to 22,976 tonnes last year.
Goa has the famous distinction of being the only state in India to distil
liquor from the cashew apple
So the directorate of Agriculture has to
choose grafts that will yield good quality nuts and also ensure that the
cashew apple gives plenty of juice to make feni. (Joaquim Fernandes in NT)

NOT TO WELCOME POLLUTING INDUSTRY: The discussion on the demands for
industries turned out to be a BJP versus Congress slanging match, with
Industries minister Ramrao Desai saying that the government was not
interested in giving a red-carpet welcome to "rogue" industries and
polluting industry. He said, the previous Congress governments' action like
not honouring the commitment made to industries on the capital subsidy
scheme, corruption, etc had totally destroyed the "industrial atmosphere"
of the State. (H)

FOOD FESTIVAL: The Food Festival is just a fortnight away. It has been
finalised to be organised in South Goa and that too in the Tourism
minister's constituency. However, the organisers (Tourism Department) have
not applied their minds regarding the disposal of garbage that is going to
be generated during the four days of fun and frolic, from 24 to 27 April. (GT)

DOWRY CASE: Police have arrested four members of a family on charges of
dowry harassment. Mita Dhabolkar (26) in her complaint alleged that her
husband Gurudas, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brothers-in-law and
sister-in-law from Fatorda, subjected her to cruelty, and persistently
harassed her for Rs.5 lakh dowry. (GT)

ORIYAS OBSERVE UTKAL DIVAS: Utkal Divas was celebrated on 1 April at Vasco.
This day is commemorated as the day Orissa was formed as a state way back
in 1936. A large number of Oriyas and their family members working in Goa
joined the function. As many as 15,000 Oriya population is engaged in
various organisations and industriesmining, pharmaceuticals, banks, hotels,
security, government establishments as well as the Indian Navy. (GT)

FUNDACAO SHIFTS TO PERFORMING ARTS: Fundacao Oriente has drawn up a list of
sponsorship of a series of exhibitions and performing arts in its shift
from heritage conservation projects. Speaking to reporters, Dr Sergio
Mascarenhas, Delegate Goa, said Fundacao Oriente had achieved its objective
in heritage conservation as the projects had accrued benefits to the
movement as a whole. Replying to a query, he said a technical committee
from Portugal, which is co-operating on the possibility of digitalizing
records in the state archives, is yet to submit its report. (GT)

LOVER OR ROMAN SCRIPT KONKANI: A simple, humble man, Brazinho Soares
Kalapurkar, lives in Santa Cruz in his small, old house that is devoid of
any fancy modern furnishings. Yet, for his huge individual collection of
Roman script Konkani books, Brazinho must be the richest man in Goa. He
claims to have at least 1300 Konkani books alone. Besides, he has a vast
collection of newspapers, magazines, even handbills, all of which are in
Konkani. "When money was scarce and I had to choose between buying tea or a
Konkani book, the book won," he says. (Joaquim Fernandes in NT)

April 10, 2003

CM ADMITS LEAKAGE OF SSC PAPERS: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar admitted
in the Goa Assembly the 'leakage' of some SSC papers and said
investigations are in progress to trace the main culprit. Replying to the
issue raised by Congress MLA Agnelo Fernandes during Zero Hour, Parrikar
said there was enough documentary evidence to prove that it was a fit case
for a thorough investigation. (GT)

WAR BRINGS JOB OPPORTUNITIES: The Mumbai-based Royal Consultants is
apparently on a recruiting spree on behalf of the Kuwait Catering Company,
which has been hired by the coalition forces for back-end and supply
functions for rehabilitation and relief work in war devastated Iraq. The
salaries are also attractive, ranging from 100 Kuwait Dinars (Rs.15,000) to
300 Kuwait Dinars (Rs.45,000), which is comparable with salaries offered
for similar short-term assignments abroad. (H)

HELP FOR DOG-BITE VICTIM: In response to the goanetters' queries regarding
the dog-bite case, Mr Roland Martins, Co-ordinator of Goa Desc,
(goadesc at goatelecom.com) has already activated "the people at the local
level who could co-ordinate the assistance that you would like to provide
to the family of Mrs Laxmi Bhosle, the victim of the dog-bite case. Mr.
Olencio Fernandes (mailto:olencio at goatelecom.com), the Convenor of Nuvem
Civic and Consumer Forum, can be contacted in this regard. The Forum and
the people in the neighbourhood are in the forefront to get justice in this
matter and are also pursuing the Case with the concerned authorities". (GoaNOW)

DOUBTS OVER ZP PROJECTS: Can a sizeable chunk of the developmental works
undertaken by Zilla Panchayat cost only Rs.15,000 each? The Opposition
raised suspicions at this 'magic figure'. It was evident from the answer
provided by the Panchayat Minister Manohar Azgaonkar that out of over 450
development projects in North Goa, at least 200 of them were tendered at an
estimated cost of Rs.15,000 each. (GT)

SPEAKER DEFENDS DELIMITATION COMMITTEE: Even as the National Delimitation
Commission is scheduled to a hold a consultation with associate members on
formulating a working paper for delimitation of the 40 Assembly
constituencies on 12 April, Speaker Vishwas Satarkar defended the formation
of the present State level committee. (GT)

SARS DETECTION: While the Goa Medical College Hospital at Bambolim is
gearing up to tackle the SARS threat, the actual detection of the deadly
virus could take at least one week after a suspected patient is admitted to
the SARS isolation room at the GMC. This is because the GMC does not have
the requisite facilities to conduct tests, to ascertain if the patient is
affected by the atypical pneumonia
and the samples of blood and sputum
would have to be sent to the National Institute of Virology at Pune and the
National Institute of Communicable Diseases for conducting tests. (H)

WOMAN COMMITS SUICIDE: Deepshri Dinkar Naik, a 36-yea-old woman from
Naikwada-Mandrem, committed suicide in her house on Tuesday morning, while
the family members were away. Her body was founding hanging from the roof
of the house. She was married to Dinkar in 1997. The cause behind the
suicide is yet to be ascertained. (H)

BEATEN TO DEATH: Ranganath Vithal Bhinge (51) from Talauli-Ponda, went to
collect cashews and mangoes from a property in Narve-Bicholim, but did not
return alive. He was fatally assaulted by a mundkar and his three sons
after they suspected him of trespassing into the property. (H)

POWER DEPT: Power Minister Digambar Kamat yesterday stated that the
Electricity department would be structured so that the staff strength would
be increased to ensure fast and efficient service to the consumers. Thrust
would be laid on quality, reliable and uninterrupted power so as to make
Goa the first model state in the country, he said. (GT)

MODERN ARMS FOR COPS: If the modernization proposal for the year 2003-04 is
anything to go by, the cops are definitely preparing for a major onslaught
on terrorist activities. The proposal, worth more than Rs.650 lakh, reads
like a list from a Hollywood action flick with allocations for high-powered
7.62 mm rifles, sub-machine guns, Russian-made AK-47 assault rifles and
long range sniper rifles, besides assorted ammunition. The police are also
planning to acquire metal detectors, night-vision devices, hi-tech
binoculars, digital and video cameras. The traffic police will be better
equipped and more potent force with hand-held traffic radars and
alcoholmeters being procured. (GT)

STOLEN FROM POLICE STATION VICINITY: A motor cycle, parked by Sandip
Karambolkar of Haveli-Ponda in a parking lot barely metres from the Ponda
police station, was stolen on Wednesday in broad daylight. (H)

CROSS DESECRATED: A marble cross was smashed to pieces by miscreants in the
property of Mount Carmel Chapel at Tisk-Ponda on Wednesday morning.

CELL WHILE RIDING: Roaming with a trendy mobile cell phone might prove
costly, especially while one is riding a two-wheeler. For, talking on the
cell phone while riding is now regarded as rash and negligent driving by
the traffic police, entailing a fine of Rs.600. (H)

CASHEW NUT PRODUCTION TO RISE: Cashew nut production in Goa is expected to
touch around 23,000 tonnes this year, compared to 22,976 tonnes last year.
Goa has the famous distinction of being the only state in India to distil
liquor from the cashew apple
So the directorate of Agriculture has to
choose grafts that will yield good quality nuts and also ensure that the
cashew apple gives plenty of juice to make feni. (Joaquim Fernandes in NT)

NOT TO WELCOME POLLUTING INDUSTRY: The discussion on the demands for
industries turned out to be a BJP versus Congress slanging match, with
Industries minister Ramrao Desai saying that the government was not
interested in giving a red-carpet welcome to "rogue" industries and
polluting industry. He said, the previous Congress governments' action like
not honouring the commitment made to industries on the capital subsidy
scheme, corruption, etc had totally destroyed the "industrial atmosphere"
of the State. (H)

FOOD FESTIVAL: The Food Festival is just a fortnight away. It has been
finalised to be organised in South Goa and that too in the Tourism
minister's constituency. However, the organisers (Tourism Department) have
not applied their minds regarding the disposal of garbage that is going to
be generated during the four days of fun and frolic, from 24 to 27 April. (GT)

DOWRY CASE: Police have arrested four members of a family on charges of
dowry harassment. Mita Dhabolkar (26) in her complaint alleged that her
husband Gurudas, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brothers-in-law and
sister-in-law from Fatorda, subjected her to cruelty, and persistently
harassed her for Rs.5 lakh dowry. (GT)

ORIYAS OBSERVE UTKAL DIVAS: Utkal Divas was celebrated on 1 April at Vasco.
This day is commemorated as the day Orissa was formed as a state way back
in 1936. A large number of Oriyas and their family members working in Goa
joined the function. As many as 15,000 Oriya population is engaged in
various organisations and industriesmining, pharmaceuticals, banks, hotels,
security, government establishments as well as the Indian Navy. (GT)

FUNDACAO SHIFTS TO PERFORMING ARTS: Fundacao Oriente has drawn up a list of
sponsorship of a series of exhibitions and performing arts in its shift
from heritage conservation projects. Speaking to reporters, Dr Sergio
Mascarenhas, Delegate Goa, said Fundacao Oriente had achieved its objective
in heritage conservation as the projects had accrued benefits to the
movement as a whole. Replying to a query, he said a technical committee
from Portugal, which is co-operating on the possibility of digitalizing
records in the state archives, is yet to submit its report. (GT)

LOVER OR ROMAN SCRIPT KONKANI: A simple, humble man, Brazinho Soares
Kalapurkar, lives in Santa Cruz in his small, old house that is devoid of
any fancy modern furnishings. Yet, for his huge individual collection of
Roman script Konkani books, Brazinho must be the richest man in Goa. He
claims to have at least 1300 Konkani books alone. Besides, he has a vast
collection of newspapers, magazines, even handbills, all of which are in
Konkani. "When money was scarce and I had to choose between buying tea or a
Konkani book, the book won," he says. (Joaquim Fernandes in NT)

NOT TO WELCOME POLLUTING INDUSTRY: The discussion on the demands for
industries turned out to be a BJP versus Congress slanging match, with
Industries minister Ramrao Desai saying that the government was not
interested in giving a red-carpet welcome to "rogue" industries and
polluting industry. He said, the previous Congress governments' action like
not honouring the commitment made to industries on the capital subsidy
scheme, corruption, etc had totally destroyed the "industrial atmosphere"
of the State. (H)

FOOD FESTIVAL: The Food Festival is just a fortnight away. It has been
finalised to be organised in South Goa and that too in the Tourism
minister's constituency. However, the organisers (Tourism Department) have
not applied their minds regarding the disposal of garbage that is going to
be generated during the four days of fun and frolic, from 24 to 27 April. (GT)

DOWRY CASE: Police have arrested four members of a family on charges of
dowry harassment. Mita Dhabolkar (26) in her complaint alleged that her
husband Gurudas, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brothers-in-law and
sister-in-law from Fatorda, subjected her to cruelty, and persistently
harassed her for Rs.5 lakh dowry. (GT)

ORIYAS OBSERVE UTKAL DIVAS: Utkal Divas was celebrated on 1 April at Vasco.
This day is commemorated as the day Orissa was formed as a state way back
in 1936. A large number of Oriyas and their family members working in Goa
joined the function. As many as 15,000 Oriya population is engaged in
various organisations and industriesmining, pharmaceuticals, banks, hotels,
security, government establishments as well as the Indian Navy. (GT)

FUNDACAO SHIFTS TO PERFORMING ARTS: Fundacao Oriente has drawn up a list of
sponsorship of a series of exhibitions and performing arts in its shift
from heritage conservation projects. Speaking to reporters, Dr Sergio
Mascarenhas, Delegate Goa, said Fundacao Oriente had achieved its objective
in heritage conservation as the projects had accrued benefits to the
movement as a whole. Replying to a query, he said a technical committee
from Portugal, which is co-operating on the possibility of digitalizing
records in the state archives, is yet to submit its report. (GT)

LOVER OR ROMAN SCRIPT KONKANI: A simple, humble man, Brazinho Soares
Kalapurkar, lives in Santa Cruz in his small, old house that is devoid of
any fancy modern furnishings. Yet, for his huge individual collection of
Roman script Konkani books, Brazinho must be the richest man in Goa. He
claims to have at least 1300 Konkani books alone. Besides, he has a vast
collection of newspapers, magazines, even handbills, all of which are in
Konkani. "When money was scarce and I had to choose between buying tea or a
Konkani book, the book won," he says. (Joaquim Fernandes in NT)

GOACOM DAILY NEWS CLIPPINGS
April 10, 2003

CM ADMITS LEAKAGE OF SSC PAPERS: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar admitted
in the Goa Assembly the 'leakage' of some SSC papers and said
investigations are in progress to trace the main culprit. Replying to the
issue raised by Congress MLA Agnelo Fernandes during Zero Hour, Parrikar
said there was enough documentary evidence to prove that it was a fit case
for a thorough investigation. (GT)

WAR BRINGS JOB OPPORTUNITIES: The Mumbai-based Royal Consultants is
apparently on a recruiting spree on behalf of the Kuwait Catering Company,
which has been hired by the coalition forces for back-end and supply
functions for rehabilitation and relief work in war devastated Iraq. The
salaries are also attractive, ranging from 100 Kuwait Dinars (Rs.15,000) to
300 Kuwait Dinars (Rs.45,000), which is comparable with salaries offered
for similar short-term assignments abroad. (H)

HELP FOR DOG-BITE VICTIM: In response to the goanetters' queries regarding
the dog-bite case, Mr Roland Martins, Co-ordinator of Goa Desc,
(goadesc at goatelecom.com) has already activated "the people at the local
level who could co-ordinate the assistance that you would like to provide
to the family of Mrs Laxmi Bhosle, the victim of the dog-bite case. Mr.
Olencio Fernandes (mailto:olencio at goatelecom.com), the Convenor of Nuvem
Civic and Consumer Forum, can be contacted in this regard. The Forum and
the people in the neighbourhood are in the forefront to get justice in this
matter and are also pursuing the Case with the concerned authorities". (GoaNOW)

DOUBTS OVER ZP PROJECTS: Can a sizeable chunk of the developmental works
undertaken by Zilla Panchayat cost only Rs.15,000 each? The Opposition
raised suspicions at this 'magic figure'. It was evident from the answer
provided by the Panchayat Minister Manohar Azgaonkar that out of over 450
development projects in North Goa, at least 200 of them were tendered at an
estimated cost of Rs.15,000 each. (GT)

SPEAKER DEFENDS DELIMITATION COMMITTEE: Even as the National Delimitation
Commission is scheduled to a hold a consultation with associate members on
formulating a working paper for delimitation of the 40 Assembly
constituencies on 12 April, Speaker Vishwas Satarkar defended the formation
of the present State level committee. (GT)

SARS DETECTION: While the Goa Medical College Hospital at Bambolim is
gearing up to tackle the SARS threat, the actual detection of the deadly
virus could take at least one week after a suspected patient is admitted to
the SARS isolation room at the GMC. This is because the GMC does not have
the requisite facilities to conduct tests, to ascertain if the patient is
affected by the atypical pneumonia
and the samples of blood and sputum
would have to be sent to the National Institute of Virology at Pune and the
National Institute of Communicable Diseases for conducting tests. (H)

WOMAN COMMITS SUICIDE: Deepshri Dinkar Naik, a 36-yea-old woman from
Naikwada-Mandrem, committed suicide in her house on Tuesday morning, while
the family members were away. Her body was founding hanging from the roof
of the house. She was married to Dinkar in 1997. The cause behind the
suicide is yet to be ascertained. (H)

BEATEN TO DEATH: Ranganath Vithal Bhinge (51) from Talauli-Ponda, went to
collect cashews and mangoes from a property in Narve-Bicholim, but did not
return alive. He was fatally assaulted by a mundkar and his three sons
after they suspected him of trespassing into the property. (H)

POWER DEPT: Power Minister Digambar Kamat yesterday stated that the
Electricity department would be structured so that the staff strength would
be increased to ensure fast and efficient service to the consumers. Thrust
would be laid on quality, reliable and uninterrupted power so as to make
Goa the first model state in the country, he said. (GT)

MODERN ARMS FOR COPS: If the modernization proposal for the year 2003-04 is
anything to go by, the cops are definitely preparing for a major onslaught
on terrorist activities. The proposal, worth more than Rs.650 lakh, reads
like a list from a Hollywood action flick with allocations for high-powered
7.62 mm rifles, sub-machine guns, Russian-made AK-47 assault rifles and
long range sniper rifles, besides assorted ammunition. The police are also
planning to acquire metal detectors, night-vision devices, hi-tech
binoculars, digital and video cameras. The traffic police will be better
equipped and more potent force with hand-held traffic radars and
alcoholmeters being procured. (GT)

STOLEN FROM POLICE STATION VICINITY: A motor cycle, parked by Sandip
Karambolkar of Haveli-Ponda in a parking lot barely metres from the Ponda
police station, was stolen on Wednesday in broad daylight. (H)

CROSS DESECRATED: A marble cross was smashed to pieces by miscreants in the
property of Mount Carmel Chapel at Tisk-Ponda on Wednesday morning.

CELL WHILE RIDING: Roaming with a trendy mobile cell phone might prove
costly, especially while one is riding a two-wheeler. For, talking on the
cell phone while riding is now regarded as rash and negligent driving by
the traffic police, entailing a fine of Rs.600. (H)

CASHEW NUT PRODUCTION TO RISE: Cashew nut production in Goa is expected to
touch around 23,000 tonnes this year, compared to 22,976 tonnes last year.
Goa has the famous distinction of being the only state in India to distil
liquor from the cashew apple
So the directorate of Agriculture has to
choose grafts that will yield good quality nuts and also ensure that the
cashew apple gives plenty of juice to make feni. (Joaquim Fernandes in NT)
