GEORGE FERNANDES HAILS INDIA-CHINA-RUSSIA ALLIANCE: Union Defence Minister
George Fernandes hailed the formation of India-China-Russia alliance,
opining that such unity would enhance friendship between the three countries
and also help their economies grow. Fernandes was speaking to journalists
after commissioning the Advanced Offshore Patrol vessel "CGS Sagar" built by
Goa Shipyard Limited, at Mormugao Port yesterday morning. (GT)

MORE ORDERS FOR GOA SHIPYARD: The Indian Coast Guard is expected to place
orders worth Rs.450 crore with Goa Shipyard Ltd for the manufacture of
advanced offshore patrol and five fast patrol vessels. Announcing this
during the commissioning ceremony of "Sagar", Coast Guard Director General
Vice Admiral Suresh Mehta said the fleet of Coast Guard would expand shortly
with the induction of 38 new ships and 20 aircrafts. (GT)

NRI'S VOTING RIGHTS: Are seafarers and those working abroad, who are not
ordinarily residents, ineligible to vote? For the moment, the status quo
vis-a-vis the voting rights enjoyed by the group of Indian citizens remains
unchanged, but the Election Commission Office, Goa, has thought it fit to
refer the question to the Election Commission for India for a final
decision. (H)

PARRIKAR FOR IFFI: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has suggested to the
Information and Broadcasting Ministry that it would be more advisable to
hold the 35th International Film Festival of India in December 2004 after
the feast of St Francis Xavier. Parrikar opined that this would help draw a
better crowd as people not only from neighbouring states but from other
parts of the world flock to Old Goa for the feast. (GT)

MID-DAY MEAL SCHEME: Primary schools in the State will re-commence after the
Divali vacations with a nutritious mid-day meal scheme, which will kick
start again in Sattari taluka from November 11. The commencement of the
Rs.2.5 crore scheme had been delayed due to the outbreak of jaundice
epidemic. (H)

POROBO'S RE-APPOINTMENT: Adv Aires Rodrigues has urged the North and South
Goa Advocates' Association to convene a joint emergency meeting to discuss
the re-appointment of Zoivonta Esvonta Probo as Goa Administrative Tribunal
president. Adv Rodrigues has stated that the meeting should be convened to
discuss the flagrant violation of the independence of Judiciary by the State
government in appointing Porobo to a senior judicial post without following
the provisions of the Constitution. (H)

FLYING SQUAD FOR ILLEGAL BARS: A flying squad-cum-enforcement cell of the
Excise department is to commence random raids on illegal activities related
to liquor sale, particularly carried out during the night. (H)

CRACKDOWN ON LAMANIS: The Colva police on Monday launched a crackdown on
Lamanis wandering on the stretch of beach between Sernabatim and Colva. (H)

LOUTULIM VILLAGERS THREATEN RASTA ROKO: The villagers of Loutulim have
threatened to stage a rasta roko on Monday next if the concerned authorities
fail to take action in respect of the contamination of the Rassaim spring
water in a week's time. This was decided at the gram Sabha meeting of the
village panchayat on Sunday. (H)

35-YEAR-OLD COMMITS SUICIDE: Shantappa Temna Harijan, a 35-year-old man
committed suicide in his house, hanging himself with a wire, yesterday
afternoon at Tonca, Camrabhat. (GT)

HOUSES, TREES FACE AXE FOR MARGAO BYPASS: Around one thousand trees and nine
residential houses will face the axe to make way for the eagerly-awaited
Margao western-bypass, proposed to divert heavy traffic on the National
Highway No.17 between Nuvem and Dramapur. (H)

SC PULLS UP 13 STATES: The Supreme Court yesterday pulled up 13 states
(including Goa) for their failure to comply with its directions to make
functional all their sanctioned fast-track courts and set a deadline of 31
December for them to do so. (UNI report in GT)

ANOTHER FORGED PASSPORT CASE! After a gap of barely 12 days, yet another
case of forgery was detected by immigration police at the Dabolim airport
yesterday, when a female passenger (Salma, wife of Mohammed Faiyaz) of
Bangalore, tried to board the Sharjah-bound flight. According to the
immigration police, the passenger had substituted the photograph and the
passport cover page had also been changed. (H)

NEW POSTULATOR FOR THE CAUSE OR VEN FR AGNELO: Fr Antonio Marazzo from Rome
and belonging to the Redemptorist Congregation was appointed the new
Postulator to promote the cause of the Beatification of Fr Agnelo D'Souza.
Fr Antonio is the fourth Postulator to be appointed to promote the cause of
Beatification of Fr Agnelo, a saintly priest belonging to the Society of
Pilar, who died on 20 November 1928. In 1953, D Jose Viera Alvernaz, the
Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Goa, initiated the process of his
Beatification. On November 1986, Pope John Paul II declared him Venerable in
Rome. (GT)

ITALIAN LANGUAGE WEEK: The Italian embassy Cultural Centre is organizing an
Italian Language Week 2003 in Goa to be celebrated on 6 November at 2.30 pm
in collaboration with the Faculty of Literature, Goa University, according
to Ashish Jacob Thomas, AR-Public Relations. (GT)

EXPO ON PLASTIC ILLS: The Green Group of Nirmala Institute of Education,
Altinho-Panjim, will organise a small exhibition on "Hazards of Plastic
Bags" on November 7, at the KTC bus stand, Panjim, from 10 am to 4 pm. (H)

AWAITING E-GOVERNANCE? For a State headed by an IITian, Goa has been
surprisingly slow in taking to e-governance. Leave aside that, it would
appear that the majority of the bureaucrats are mortally afraid of using the
computer, let alone becoming e-responsive to the average citizen. Chief
Minister Manohar Parrikar has built up a reputation of sorts for replying or
reacting to e-mail sent on his cm at goa.nic.in address. But one individual
being proactive is no substitute for working towards a more responsive
administration. (Edit in Herald)

'BMX' MEET IN TORONTO: The idea of BMX, an association of all ex-students of
Britto's, St Mary's and Xavier's-the BMXers-was born in Toronto when Lucindo
Faria from Mapusa was talking with ex-Britto boys settled in Canada. Since
quite a few of them are married to ex-St Mary's Covent girls and, often,
both of them had studied in St Xavier's College, Mapusa, BMX was an unifying
factor for Mapshemkars, Saligaokars, Parrikars, Aldonkars, Moidekars,
Asnodkars, Revodkars, Siolkars, Anjunkars, Arporkars, Calangutkars, etc. A
meeting was convened by Lucindo Faria at St Britto High School on November
22 to discuss the plans for a grand reunion in Canada in July 2004. Details

GEORGE FERNANDES HAILS INDIA-CHINA-RUSSIA ALLIANCE: Union Defence Minister
George Fernandes hailed the formation of India-China-Russia alliance,
opining that such unity would enhance friendship between the three countries
and also help their economies grow. Fernandes was speaking to journalists
after commissioning the Advanced Offshore Patrol vessel "CGS Sagar" built by
Goa Shipyard Limited, at Mormugao Port yesterday morning. (GT)

MORE ORDERS FOR GOA SHIPYARD: The Indian Coast Guard is expected to place
orders worth Rs.450 crore with Goa Shipyard Ltd for the manufacture of
advanced offshore patrol and five fast patrol vessels. Announcing this
during the commissioning ceremony of "Sagar", Coast Guard Director General
Vice Admiral Suresh Mehta said the fleet of Coast Guard would expand shortly
with the induction of 38 new ships and 20 aircrafts. (GT)

NRI'S VOTING RIGHTS: Are seafarers and those working abroad, who are not
ordinarily residents, ineligible to vote? For the moment, the status quo
vis-a-vis the voting rights enjoyed by the group of Indian citizens remains
unchanged, but the Election Commission Office, Goa, has thought it fit to
refer the question to the Election Commission for India for a final
decision. (H)

PARRIKAR FOR IFFI: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has suggested to the
Information and Broadcasting Ministry that it would be more advisable to
hold the 35th International Film Festival of India in December 2004 after
the feast of St Francis Xavier. Parrikar opined that this would help draw a
better crowd as people not only from neighbouring states but from other
parts of the world flock to Old Goa for the feast. (GT)

MID-DAY MEAL SCHEME: Primary schools in the State will re-commence after the
Divali vacations with a nutritious mid-day meal scheme, which will kick
start again in Sattari taluka from November 11. The commencement of the
Rs.2.5 crore scheme had been delayed due to the outbreak of jaundice
epidemic. (H)

POROBO'S RE-APPOINTMENT: Adv Aires Rodrigues has urged the North and South
Goa Advocates' Association to convene a joint emergency meeting to discuss
the re-appointment of Zoivonta Esvonta Probo as Goa Administrative Tribunal
president. Adv Rodrigues has stated that the meeting should be convened to
discuss the flagrant violation of the independence of Judiciary by the State
government in appointing Porobo to a senior judicial post without following
the provisions of the Constitution. (H)

FLYING SQUAD FOR ILLEGAL BARS: A flying squad-cum-enforcement cell of the
Excise department is to commence random raids on illegal activities related
to liquor sale, particularly carried out during the night. (H)

CRACKDOWN ON LAMANIS: The Colva police on Monday launched a crackdown on
Lamanis wandering on the stretch of beach between Sernabatim and Colva. (H)

LOUTULIM VILLAGERS THREATEN RASTA ROKO: The villagers of Loutulim have
threatened to stage a rasta roko on Monday next if the concerned authorities
fail to take action in respect of the contamination of the Rassaim spring
water in a week's time. This was decided at the gram Sabha meeting of the
village panchayat on Sunday. (H)

35-YEAR-OLD COMMITS SUICIDE: Shantappa Temna Harijan, a 35-year-old man
committed suicide in his house, hanging himself with a wire, yesterday
afternoon at Tonca, Camrabhat. (GT)

HOUSES, TREES FACE AXE FOR MARGAO BYPASS: Around one thousand trees and nine
residential houses will face the axe to make way for the eagerly-awaited
Margao western-bypass, proposed to divert heavy traffic on the National
Highway No.17 between Nuvem and Dramapur. (H)

SC PULLS UP 13 STATES: The Supreme Court yesterday pulled up 13 states
(including Goa) for their failure to comply with its directions to make
functional all their sanctioned fast-track courts and set a deadline of 31
December for them to do so. (UNI report in GT)

ANOTHER FORGED PASSPORT CASE! After a gap of barely 12 days, yet another
case of forgery was detected by immigration police at the Dabolim airport
yesterday, when a female passenger (Salma, wife of Mohammed Faiyaz) of
Bangalore, tried to board the Sharjah-bound flight. According to the
immigration police, the passenger had substituted the photograph and the
passport cover page had also been changed. (H)

NEW POSTULATOR FOR THE CAUSE OR VEN FR AGNELO: Fr Antonio Marazzo from Rome
and belonging to the Redemptorist Congregation was appointed the new
Postulator to promote the cause of the Beatification of Fr Agnelo D'Souza.
Fr Antonio is the fourth Postulator to be appointed to promote the cause of
Beatification of Fr Agnelo, a saintly priest belonging to the Society of
Pilar, who died on 20 November 1928. In 1953, D Jose Viera Alvernaz, the
Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Goa, initiated the process of his
Beatification. On November 1986, Pope John Paul II declared him Venerable in
Rome. (GT)

ITALIAN LANGUAGE WEEK: The Italian embassy Cultural Centre is organizing an
Italian Language Week 2003 in Goa to be celebrated on 6 November at 2.30 pm
in collaboration with the Faculty of Literature, Goa University, according
to Ashish Jacob Thomas, AR-Public Relations. (GT)

EXPO ON PLASTIC ILLS: The Green Group of Nirmala Institute of Education,
Altinho-Panjim, will organise a small exhibition on "Hazards of Plastic
Bags" on November 7, at the KTC bus stand, Panjim, from 10 am to 4 pm. (H)

AWAITING E-GOVERNANCE? For a State headed by an IITian, Goa has been
surprisingly slow in taking to e-governance. Leave aside that, it would
appear that the majority of the bureaucrats are mortally afraid of using the
computer, let alone becoming e-responsive to the average citizen. Chief
Minister Manohar Parrikar has built up a reputation of sorts for replying or
reacting to e-mail sent on his cm at goa.nic.in address. But one individual
being proactive is no substitute for working towards a more responsive
administration. (Edit in Herald)

'BMX' MEET IN TORONTO: The idea of BMX, an association of all ex-students of
Britto's, St Mary's and Xavier's-the BMXers-was born in Toronto when Lucindo
Faria from Mapusa was talking with ex-Britto boys settled in Canada. Since
quite a few of them are married to ex-St Mary's Covent girls and, often,
both of them had studied in St Xavier's College, Mapusa, BMX was an unifying
factor for Mapshemkars, Saligaokars, Parrikars, Aldonkars, Moidekars,
Asnodkars, Revodkars, Siolkars, Anjunkars, Arporkars, Calangutkars, etc. A
meeting was convened by Lucindo Faria at St Britto High School on November
22 to discuss the plans for a grand reunion in Canada in July 2004. Details

GEORGE FERNANDES HAILS INDIA-CHINA-RUSSIA ALLIANCE: Union Defence Minister
George Fernandes hailed the formation of India-China-Russia alliance,
opining that such unity would enhance friendship between the three countries
and also help their economies grow. Fernandes was speaking to journalists
after commissioning the Advanced Offshore Patrol vessel "CGS Sagar" built by
Goa Shipyard Limited, at Mormugao Port yesterday morning. (GT)

MORE ORDERS FOR GOA SHIPYARD: The Indian Coast Guard is expected to place
orders worth Rs.450 crore with Goa Shipyard Ltd for the manufacture of
advanced offshore patrol and five fast patrol vessels. Announcing this
during the commissioning ceremony of "Sagar", Coast Guard Director General
Vice Admiral Suresh Mehta said the fleet of Coast Guard would expand shortly
with the induction of 38 new ships and 20 aircrafts. (GT)

NRI'S VOTING RIGHTS: Are seafarers and those working abroad, who are not
ordinarily residents, ineligible to vote? For the moment, the status quo
vis-a-vis the voting rights enjoyed by the group of Indian citizens remains
unchanged, but the Election Commission Office, Goa, has thought it fit to
refer the question to the Election Commission for India for a final
decision. (H)

PARRIKAR FOR IFFI: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has suggested to the
Information and Broadcasting Ministry that it would be more advisable to
hold the 35th International Film Festival of India in December 2004 after
the feast of St Francis Xavier. Parrikar opined that this would help draw a
better crowd as people not only from neighbouring states but from other
parts of the world flock to Old Goa for the feast. (GT)

MID-DAY MEAL SCHEME: Primary schools in the State will re-commence after the
Divali vacations with a nutritious mid-day meal scheme, which will kick
start again in Sattari taluka from November 11. The commencement of the
Rs.2.5 crore scheme had been delayed due to the outbreak of jaundice
epidemic. (H)

POROBO'S RE-APPOINTMENT: Adv Aires Rodrigues has urged the North and South
Goa Advocates' Association to convene a joint emergency meeting to discuss
the re-appointment of Zoivonta Esvonta Probo as Goa Administrative Tribunal
president. Adv Rodrigues has stated that the meeting should be convened to
discuss the flagrant violation of the independence of Judiciary by the State
government in appointing Porobo to a senior judicial post without following
the provisions of the Constitution. (H)

FLYING SQUAD FOR ILLEGAL BARS: A flying squad-cum-enforcement cell of the
Excise department is to commence random raids on illegal activities related
to liquor sale, particularly carried out during the night. (H)

CRACKDOWN ON LAMANIS: The Colva police on Monday launched a crackdown on
Lamanis wandering on the stretch of beach between Sernabatim and Colva. (H)

LOUTULIM VILLAGERS THREATEN RASTA ROKO: The villagers of Loutulim have
threatened to stage a rasta roko on Monday next if the concerned authorities
fail to take action in respect of the contamination of the Rassaim spring
water in a week's time. This was decided at the gram Sabha meeting of the
village panchayat on Sunday. (H)

35-YEAR-OLD COMMITS SUICIDE: Shantappa Temna Harijan, a 35-year-old man
committed suicide in his house, hanging himself with a wire, yesterday
afternoon at Tonca, Camrabhat. (GT)

HOUSES, TREES FACE AXE FOR MARGAO BYPASS: Around one thousand trees and nine
residential houses will face the axe to make way for the eagerly-awaited
Margao western-bypass, proposed to divert heavy traffic on the National
Highway No.17 between Nuvem and Dramapur. (H)

SC PULLS UP 13 STATES: The Supreme Court yesterday pulled up 13 states
(including Goa) for their failure to comply with its directions to make
functional all their sanctioned fast-track courts and set a deadline of 31
December for them to do so. (UNI report in GT)

ANOTHER FORGED PASSPORT CASE! After a gap of barely 12 days, yet another
case of forgery was detected by immigration police at the Dabolim airport
yesterday, when a female passenger (Salma, wife of Mohammed Faiyaz) of
Bangalore, tried to board the Sharjah-bound flight. According to the
immigration police, the passenger had substituted the photograph and the
passport cover page had also been changed. (H)

and belonging to the Redemptorist Congregation was appointed the new
Postulator to promote the cause of the Beatification of Fr Agnelo D'Souza.
Fr Antonio is the fourth Postulator to be appointed to promote the cause of
Beatification of Fr Agnelo, a saintly priest belonging to the Society of
Pilar, who died on 20 November 1928. In 1953, D Jose Viera Alvernaz, the
Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Goa, initiated the process of his

Rome. (GT)

ITALIAN LANGUAGE WEEK: The Italian embassy Cultural Centre is organizing an

Altinho-Panjim, will organise a small exhibition on "Hazards of Plastic
Bags" on November 7, at the KTC bus stand, Panjim, from 10 am to 4 pm. (H)

AWAITING E-GOVERNANCE? For a State headed by an IITian, Goa has been
surprisingly slow in taking to e-governance. Leave aside that, it would
appear that the majority of the bureaucrats are mortally afraid of using the
computer, let alone becoming e-responsive to the average citizen. Chief
Minister Manohar Parrikar has built up a reputation of sorts for replying or
reacting to e-mail sent on his cm at goa.nic.in address. But one individual
being proactive is no substitute for working towards a more responsive
administration. (Edit in Herald)

'BMX' MEET IN TORONTO: The idea of BMX, an association of all ex-students of
Britto's, St Mary's and Xavier's-the BMXers-was born in Toronto when Lucindo
Faria from Mapusa was talking with ex-Britto boys settled in Canada. Since
quite a few of them are married to ex-St Mary's Covent girls and, often,
both of them had studied in St Xavier's College, Mapusa, BMX was an unifying
factor for Mapshemkars, Saligaokars, Parrikars, Aldonkars, Moidekars,
Asnodkars, Revodkars, Siolkars, Anjunkars, Arporkars, Calangutkars, etc. A
meeting was convened by Lucindo Faria at St Britto High School on November
22 to discuss the plans for a grand reunion in Canada in July 2004. Details
