Goa. The colourful event was organised on August 22 by St Mathias Sports
Club, Divar.

BAINA - IS IT HAPPENING AGAIN? The red-light area of Baina remains
demolished with respect to the 250 cubicles, which were once used for sex
trade. But has the flesh trade died in spirit? Many people in the area
including the chairperson of Mormugao Municipal Council, Milton Barretto,
are not quite sure. A journalist from Panaji, who had visited the Baina
beach about a fortnight ago, even witnessed the soliciting of customers by
some women who had parked themselves in a line outside the hutments along
the shore. (WE-GT)

THREE SUFFER BURN INJURIES: Sandeep Sharma (29), Dinesh Kumar (27) and Banka
Bhagat (27), three workers in GR Ispat at Cuncolim Industrial Estate,
suffered serious burn injuries when a factory pipe carrying hydrochloric
acid accidentally gave way, splashing acid on them. (WE-GT)

EFFORTS TO OBTAIN INCENTIVES FOR GOAN INDUSTRY: The Minister for Industries,
Mr Ramarao Desai, said that the government is trying to obtain incentives
like tax holiday from the Centre for industries in Goa, which at present are
available in states like Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal. (NT)

MISSING WOMAN FOUND DEAD: A 60-year-old woman, Tulsi Vishnu Pawar of
Cuncolim, was found dead in the cashew plantations at Mollar. Tulsi went
missing since August 22. (H)

COLOURFUL FLOATS' PARADE: The sun was yet to set on Divar as the Bonderam
festival, which started with an exquisite floats' parade, continued as an
evening of fun and merriment. At the time of writing, the villagers from
Divar and hundreds of visitors who entered the quaint island were partying
into the night. A colourful floats' pageantry kept a huge crowd, which
packed the route of the parade from the Fetorim Junction to Our Lady of
Divar High School, regaled for nearly two hours. The presentation was a mix
of the old and the new, traditional and the latest. (WE-GT)

I WILL RESIGN IF AIRPORT IS SHIFTED: CHURCHILL: South Goa Lok Sabha MP
Churchill Alemao, expressing his strong objection to the sudden ban of
charter slots at Dabolim Airport, submitted a letter of objection to the
Union Home Minister, Pranab Mukherjee. Churchill, who in an earlier letter
to Mukherjee had requested to shift the Naval Base from Dabolim to any place
suitable to the Navy, speaking to press persons on August 28 said that if
the civil airport at Dabolim was shifted to the proposed airport site at
Mopa, Pernem, he would resign from parliament. (WE-GT)

TOUTS CASH IN ON FOREX BOOM: The Rs.1,500 crore worth local money changing
market is out for grabs. Incidentally, the gray market too is being looked
at as a purchase market by some of the 45-odd Full Fledged Money Changers
and Authorised Dealers in the State. The money changing market is witnessing
a spree of new entrants into the business and the hot spot undoubtedly being
Calangute. (H)

UPHOLD DIGNITY: Today is celebrated as Justice and Peace Sunday in India.
Archbishop of Goa and Daman, Filipe Neri Ferrao, has prayed that the healthy
seed of justice sown in each mind and heart take root in faith for a harvest
of togetherness, harmony and peace. (WE-GT)

BILL ON GOA FAMILY CODE: A draft bill on the Goa Family Code has reached the
stage of finalization and is expected to be place before the Goa Legislative
Assembly for its approval. The main highlight of the bill is that it will be
in the English language which virtually re-enacts and updates uniform and
consolidated laws regarding succession (including wills and inventory
proceedings) and the notarial organisation of jurisdiction as a public
institution integrated in the state of the continental legal system. (H)

BIMB'S DIWALI ISSUE: With a view to produce a compilation of Goans'
contribution to the film industry on the eve of International Film festival
in Goa, Bimb Publication has invited applications from Goans who have worked
in the film industry. Chief Editor of Bimb, Dilip Borkar, informed that this
compilation will come as part of the special Diwali issue this year since it
coincides with the film festival. (WE-GT)

COP HURT IN MISHAP: Dinesh Satpalkar, a police constable of the Ponda police
station, was riding a motorcycle when he was struck by a truck. Mr
Satpalkar sustained multiple hand and leg injuries. (H)

CACRA VILLAGERS APPEAL: A delegation of Cacra Nagrik Vikas Samiti has
appraised PWD officials about dry public water taps in the village and
requested them to ensure that water is released to Cacra promptly. (NT)

ARABIC AS THIRD LANGUAGE: We are living in a globalised world, where there
are mergers and acquisitions happening every day. So it is not surprising
that languages
might also follow the same trend. How about Goan/Indian schools offering
Arabic as the third language. My reason behind this is that many
Goans/Indians end up working in the Middle East. Even though you can get
along very well in the Middle East with English, knowing the Arabic language
would help you to get into the Middle East culture. Maybe it won't be too
far off if Mandarin is also considered as the third option. ("Eustaquio
Santimano" ejs at tiscali.dk in a posting to goanet at goanet.org)

PASSPORT FORGERY: Vasco police arrested Felix Monteiro of Merces who had
come to the Dabolim international Airport to fly to Sharjah by the Indian
Airlines flight, on August 27. Immigration officials, however, noticed that
the passport was forged and handed Mr Monteiro over to Vasco police. During
interrogation, Mr Monteiro disclosed the identity of another person who had
helped him in forging the passport. Police arrested Pravin Surlakar, also
from Merces. (H)

MEET TO CONDOLE DR MARTINS' DEATH: A condolence meeting to pay tribute to
late Dr Jose Francisco Martins will be held on August 30 at Institute
Menezes Braganza Hall at 5.30 pm. Dr Martins passed away on July 30, 2004. A
doctor by profession, he was a veteran freedom fighter, educationist, social
worker and writers. (NT)

VERNA VP TO ADDRESS STRAY CATTLE MENACE: Following instructions given by the
directorate of panchayats to all panchayats in the State to establish cattle
pounds, the Verna village panchayat initiated steps to build a cattle pound
within 20 days of receiving the circular. (NT)

PRAYER FOR HOLY FATHER: His Holiness is specifically requesting that we pray
for him in the knowledge that his time among us is limited. Please pray an
"Our Father" for him; then copy and forward this to as many people around
the world as possible. Pope John Paul made this request about 3 weeks ago on
praying the Angelus before the pilgrims in St. Peter's Square. He says that
only through prayer will he be given strength from those who prayed. Let us
help the Pope, whose prayers have helped so many of us.

trade. But has the flesh trade died in spirit? Many people in the area
including the chairperson of Mormugao Municipal Council, Milton Barretto,
are not quite sure. A journalist from Panaji, who had visited the Baina
beach about a fortnight ago, even witnessed the soliciting of customers by
some women who had parked themselves in a line outside the hutments along
the shore. (WE-GT)

THREE SUFFER BURN INJURIES: Sandeep Sharma (29), Dinesh Kumar (27) and Banka
Bhagat (27), three workers in GR Ispat at Cuncolim Industrial Estate,
suffered serious burn injuries when a factory pipe carrying hydrochloric
acid accidentally gave way, splashing acid on them. (WE-GT)

EFFORTS TO OBTAIN INCENTIVES FOR GOAN INDUSTRY: The Minister for Industries,
Mr Ramarao Desai, said that the government is trying to obtain incentives
like tax holiday from the Centre for industries in Goa, which at present are
available in states like Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal. (NT)

MISSING WOMAN FOUND DEAD: A 60-year-old woman, Tulsi Vishnu Pawar of
Cuncolim, was found dead in the cashew plantations at Mollar. Tulsi went
missing since August 22. (H)

COLOURFUL FLOATS' PARADE: The sun was yet to set on Divar as the Bonderam
festival, which started with an exquisite floats' parade, continued as an
evening of fun and merriment. At the time of writing, the villagers from
Divar and hundreds of visitors who entered the quaint island were partying
into the night. A colourful floats' pageantry kept a huge crowd, which
packed the route of the parade from the Fetorim Junction to Our Lady of
Divar High School, regaled for nearly two hours. The presentation was a mix
of the old and the new, traditional and the latest. (WE-GT)

I WILL RESIGN IF AIRPORT IS SHIFTED: CHURCHILL: South Goa Lok Sabha MP
Churchill Alemao, expressing his strong objection to the sudden ban of
charter slots at Dabolim Airport, submitted a letter of objection to the
Union Home Minister, Pranab Mukherjee. Churchill, who in an earlier letter
to Mukherjee had requested to shift the Naval Base from Dabolim to any place
suitable to the Navy, speaking to press persons on August 28 said that if
the civil airport at Dabolim was shifted to the proposed airport site at
Mopa, Pernem, he would resign from parliament. (WE-GT)

TOUTS CASH IN ON FOREX BOOM: The Rs.1,500 crore worth local money changing
market is out for grabs. Incidentally, the gray market too is being looked
at as a purchase market by some of the 45-odd Full Fledged Money Changers
and Authorised Dealers in the State. The money changing market is witnessing
a spree of new entrants into the business and the hot spot undoubtedly being
Calangute. (H)

UPHOLD DIGNITY: Today is celebrated as Justice and Peace Sunday in India.
Archbishop of Goa and Daman, Filipe Neri Ferrao, has prayed that the healthy
seed of justice sown in each mind and heart take root in faith for a harvest
of togetherness, harmony and peace. (WE-GT)

BILL ON GOA FAMILY CODE: A draft bill on the Goa Family Code has reached the
stage of finalization and is expected to be place before the Goa Legislative
Assembly for its approval. The main highlight of the bill is that it will be
in the English language which virtually re-enacts and updates uniform and
consolidated laws regarding succession (including wills and inventory
proceedings) and the notarial organisation of jurisdiction as a public
institution integrated in the state of the continental legal system. (H)

BIMB'S DIWALI ISSUE: With a view to produce a compilation of Goans'
contribution to the film industry on the eve of International Film festival
in Goa, Bimb Publication has invited applications from Goans who have worked
in the film industry. Chief Editor of Bimb, Dilip Borkar, informed that this
compilation will come as part of the special Diwali issue this year since it
coincides with the film festival. (WE-GT)

COP HURT IN MISHAP: Dinesh Satpalkar, a police constable of the Ponda police
station, was riding a motorcycle when he was struck by a truck. Mr
Satpalkar sustained multiple hand and leg injuries. (H)

CACRA VILLAGERS APPEAL: A delegation of Cacra Nagrik Vikas Samiti has
appraised PWD officials about dry public water taps in the village and
requested them to ensure that water is released to Cacra promptly. (NT)

ARABIC AS THIRD LANGUAGE: We are living in a globalised world, where there
are mergers and acquisitions happening every day. So it is not surprising
that languages
might also follow the same trend. How about Goan/Indian schools offering
Arabic as the third language. My reason behind this is that many
Goans/Indians end up working in the Middle East. Even though you can get
along very well in the Middle East with English, knowing the Arabic language
would help you to get into the Middle East culture. Maybe it won't be too
far off if Mandarin is also considered as the third option. ("Eustaquio

PASSPORT FORGERY: Vasco police arrested Felix Monteiro of Merces who had
come to the Dabolim international Airport to fly to Sharjah by the Indian
Airlines flight, on August 27. Immigration officials, however, noticed that
the passport was forged and handed Mr Monteiro over to Vasco police. During
interrogation, Mr Monteiro disclosed the identity of another person who had
helped him in forging the passport. Police arrested Pravin Surlakar, also
from Merces. (H)

MEET TO CONDOLE DR MARTINS' DEATH: A condolence meeting to pay tribute to
late Dr Jose Francisco Martins will be held on August 30 at Institute
Menezes Braganza Hall at 5.30 pm. Dr Martins passed away on July 30, 2004. A
doctor by profession, he was a veteran freedom fighter, educationist, social
worker and writers. (NT)

VERNA VP TO ADDRESS STRAY CATTLE MENACE: Following instructions given by the
directorate of panchayats to all panchayats in the State to establish cattle
pounds, the Verna village panchayat initiated steps to build a cattle pound
within 20 days of receiving the circular. (NT)

PRAYER FOR HOLY FATHER: His Holiness is specifically requesting that we pray
for him in the knowledge that his time among us is limited. Please pray an
"Our Father" for him; then copy and forward this to as many people around
the world as possible. Pope John Paul made this request about 3 weeks ago on
praying the Angelus before the pilgrims in St. Peter's Square. He says that
only through prayer will he be given strength from those who prayed. Let us
help the Pope, whose prayers have helped so many of us.

ARABIC AS THIRD LANGUAGE: We are living in a globalised world, where there
are mergers and acquisitions happening every day. So it is not surprising
that languages
might also follow the same trend. How about Goan/Indian schools offering
Arabic as the third language. My reason behind this is that many
Goans/Indians end up working in the Middle East. Even though you can get
along very well in the Middle East with English, knowing the Arabic language
would help you to get into the Middle East culture. Maybe it won't be too
far off if Mandarin is also considered as the third option. ("Eustaquio

PRAYER FOR HOLY FATHER: His Holiness is specifically requesting that we pray
for him in the knowledge that his time among us is limited. Please pray an
"Our Father" for him; then copy and forward this to as many people around
the world as possible. Pope John Paul made this request about 3 weeks ago on
praying the Angelus before the pilgrims in St. Peter's Square. He says that
only through prayer will he be given strength from those who prayed. Let us
help the Pope, whose prayers have helped so many of us.
