RECENT ITEMS OF PARTICULAR INTEREST ON GOANET. BY CORNEL DACOSTA

F. Noronha's brief article titled Goa, Comintern and Old Records,
indicated that there should be useful records about Goan
anti-colonialists in the archives of the former Soviet Union. However,
access to them has not been available and therefore it is worth asking
if any Goan and other researchers have found ways and means of indeed
accessing such records.

In material presented by Gabe Menezes, we are told about thousands of
farmers in India who have committed suicide because of the detrimental
effects of western nations backing free trade policies devised by the
IMF and World Bank. This is well worth reading about because the USA
and Britain have played pivotal roles in imposing market forces "on
people barely able to feed themselves..."

The difficulties existing from the Indian end about sending surplus
books from UK libraries and other sources to educational institutions
in Goa and elsewhere have been highlighted by several Goanetters.


The continuing discussion on "the bashing of Catholicism" in Goa has
gained increased momentum. It would be useful for Goan Voice (UK)
readers to provide some fresh insights to this topic.

A long article by Margaret Mascarenhas provides considerable detail on
the problems facing those keen to purchase real estate in Goa. The use
of Portuguese law, decades after the liberation of Goa, has not helped
very much to the many from outside Goa seeking homes in Goa and for
whom, the article must become essential reading.

The movie Bride and Prejudice has provoked much discussion about how
Indian men seek light-skinned partners for marriage. Well, is this
true or a figment of the imagination? Well worth finding out through
Goanet.

Comment: I wish to correct, that the post on farmers committing
suicide was posted by Mario Goveia - I only had my say regarding this.

RECENT ITEMS OF PARTICULAR INTEREST ON GOANET. BY CORNEL DACOSTA

F. Noronha's brief article titled Goa, Comintern and Old Records,
indicated that there should be useful records about Goan
anti-colonialists in the archives of the former Soviet Union. However,
access to them has not been available and therefore it is worth asking
if any Goan and other researchers have found ways and means of indeed
accessing such records.

In material presented by Gabe Menezes, we are told about thousands of
farmers in India who have committed suicide because of the detrimental
effects of western nations backing free trade policies devised by the
IMF and World Bank. This is well worth reading about because the USA
and Britain have played pivotal roles in imposing market forces "on
people barely able to feed themselves..."

The difficulties existing from the Indian end about sending surplus
books from UK libraries and other sources to educational institutions
in Goa and elsewhere have been highlighted by several Goanetters.


The continuing discussion on "the bashing of Catholicism" in Goa has
gained increased momentum. It would be useful for Goan Voice (UK)
readers to provide some fresh insights to this topic.

A long article by Margaret Mascarenhas provides considerable detail on
the problems facing those keen to purchase real estate in Goa. The use
of Portuguese law, decades after the liberation of Goa, has not helped
very much to the many from outside Goa seeking homes in Goa and for
whom, the article must become essential reading.

The movie Bride and Prejudice has provoked much discussion about how
Indian men seek light-skinned partners for marriage. Well, is this
true or a figment of the imagination? Well worth finding out through
Goanet.

Comment: I wish to correct, that the post on farmers committing
suicide was posted by Mario Goveia - I only had my say regarding this.

Always my policy give the Devil his due!
