* BONDERAM: A traditional Harvest Festival held on the island of Divar in
Goa. The colourful event was organised on August 22 by St Mathias Sports
Club, Divar.

IT RAIDS AMBUSH ISIDORE, BABUSH: Income tax officials yesterday (August 31)
carried out simultaneous raids of residential and commercial establishments
of Town and Country Planning Minister, Atanasio Monserrate, former
Poinguinim MLA Isidore Fernandes and three other city-based businessmen
including a builder. This is the first time that residential and commercial
establishments belonging to a Cabinet minister has been raided by the IT
officials in the State. (GT)

IT'S A POLITICAL VENDETTA: Town and Country Planning Minister Atanasio
Monserrate said the raid smacked off political vendetta by the Congress. "I
went to the GPCC president Luizinho Faleiro's house along with the Transport
Minister Pandurang Madkaikar to wish him on his birthday on 26
August..Luizinho told me that I could pay Isidore the money but asked me
that the latter should not contest the bye-election." The raid is borne out
of the Congress motive to seek political revenge and settle scores, former
Poinguinim MLA Isidore Fernandes said. (GT)

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MAHARAJA MONSERATE: To his followers and
beneficiaries, Babush is a king with a heart. To his opponents he is a Robin
Hood who is no good. Love him, hate him or raid him, it's difficult to
ignore Atanasio Monserrate. If there is one Cabinet minister who knows how
to lead a life of luxury, it is Babush Monserrate. The Maharaja loves his
cars. And his car numbers. The cars are all lined up at his Taleigao
bungalow "Case Monseratte". (GT)

PARIKAR FOR SLAMMING THE DOORS ON CBI: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said
he had lost trust in Central agencies after the unwarranted IT raid on Town
and Country Planning Minister Atanasio Monserrate and would consider
withdrawal of consent to CBI to function in Goa. Speaking to reporters at
Monserrate's residence in Taleigao after the IT officers who had completed
the search operations had left, Parrikar alleged that the raid was
politically motivated and the officials had acted under the direction of the
Central government. (GT)

MAN STABBED: A 21-year-old mason, Mr Yasin Nadaf, originally from Belgaum,
but now residing in a rented room at Canca near Mapusa, was stabbed by a
resident - Manjunath - of an adjoining room late on August 30 night. (NT)

MMC'S REVENUE RECOVERY DIPS: Officially, Margao Municipality's tax arrears
has crossed Rs.3 crore. Unofficially, it's over Rs.5 crore. These figures
might indeed sound mindboggling, but revenue generation and collection by
the civic body in the state's commercial capital has dipped to all time low.
Be it the house tax, rents from buildings, tax on advertisements, etc, the
arrears appear mounting every year. (H)

WOMAN DIES OF BURN INJURIES: A 29-year-old woman - Sharal Almeida
Fernandes - from Taleigao succumbed to burn injuries sustained in an
accident on 26 August. Sharal was married to Ravindra Fernandes and was
residing at Goa Velha when the incident occurred. (GT)

MISHAP KILLS OLD WOMAN: One P Fillomena Pinto, 70, resident of Velim, was
killed when she was hit by an oncoming motorbike at Baradi, Velim, on August
30. (GT)

MISSING GIRL TRACED: A minor girl aged 14 years, who went missing from her
house at Raia-Damon, was located at Sarzora village on August 31. (H)

HELD FOR MOLESTATION: Colva police arrested a security man, Raju Thapa, for
allegedly molesting the wife of his colleague at Calvaddo-Benaulim on August
31. The incident occurred the previous night when the accused went to the
house of the victim and after having a couple of drinks allegedly molested
the 33-year-old woman. (H)

TARGET FOR CASHEW PLANTATION: The Agriculture department has already met the
set target for the State for bringing land under cashew plantation for the
year 2004-05. The total target set for coverage under area expansion was 300
hectare and Goa has already achieved it. The target for re-planting and
rejuvenation was 700 hectare and Goa has achieved 800 hectare in this
category. According to the Asst Director of Agriculture (Cashew), Mr VM
Khandeparkar, about 2.20 lakh of cashew grafts of high yield varieties like
Vengurla, 4, Vengurla 7, Vengurla 8 and Bali 2 were distributed and have
been planted by cashew farmers in Goa this year. (NT)

MICKKY'S EXEMPTION IN COURT: The State has vehemently opposed the
application of former Tourism Minister, Mickky Pacheco, seeking exemption
from appearance in the court in the infamous Betalbatim shack burning case.
(H)

SPEED-BREAKERS AT VELIM: Two years after the proposal was first mooted by
the local village panchayat, the district authorities finally notified four
speed-breakers at the accident prone Velim market area. (H)

DIGITAL VIDEO EXHIBITION: A Exhibition on Digital Video to be held on
September 3 at Hotel Mandovi, Panjim, from 11 am to 4 pm, featuring a range
of digital video products of interest to Film-makers, Event video-graphers,
Photographers, Wedding video-graphers, amateur video-graphers and anyone
interested in digital video filming and editing. On display will be the
latest professional DV cameras from Panasonic and video editing cards from
Pinnacle. The exhibition is being presented by Visual Technologies India
Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, and Apna Studio Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, authorized distributor
and dealer for Panasonic professional DV cameras. Local sales and support is
available through us for all their products. (Allain Saldanha Proprietor,

COURSE IN SPANISH: Alliance Francais de Goa will be launching a beginners
course in Spanish on September 15 and will be of 80 hours duration. The
course will be conducted by a native speaker of Spanish, Jorge Aguirrre and
will focus on oral and written Spanish.

RICH TRIBUTES PAID TO DR MARTINS: Freedom Fighters, contemporaries and
younger admirers paid rich tributes to the late Dr Jose Francisco Martins at
a condolence meeting held at Institute Menezes Braganza hall on August 30.
Martins, who passed away a month ago, was described as the "leading figure"
among the freedom fighters who organised the movement against the Portuguese
rule within the Goan boundaries in the early 1950s. (H)

DRAWING VISITORS BY ITS BEAUTY: The beautiful village of Verna, situated 10
km from Margao, is rich in water resources with numerous lakes, ponds, tanks
and springs that it has in abundance. This has certainly been very rewarding
for local farmers to cultivate paddy and vegetables. The village can
undoubtedly be a hot spot for water harvesting projects which could save
litres of water that pours down in the lakes and ponds from hills and the
rocky terrain of Verna. The ward Ambllor, surrounded by thick trees and
knolls, has a spring covered with rocks, which forms a very impressive
spectacle for visitors thronging the place. (Roque Dias in NT)

GOAN ART OF CONSTRUCTION: So it did not come as a surprise to read that in
Margao there are over 15,000 unlicensed shops. Did it come as a surprise -
not in the least because in Goa, illegal construction has become such a fine
art. It has become so sophisticated that it is easier to build an illegal
construction than get permission for a genuine one. Yes, even with official'
s knowledge. And what is shocking is that parties who make a big song and
dance about supporting one particular type of demolition turn a blind eye to
all the illegal construction that surrounds that demolished structure. (Edit

BANKS TRYING TO EXPAND CAPITAL BASE: The managements of several commercial
banks in India are currently engaged in finding out the ways and means to
expand their capital base, upgrading their technology platform to meet the
supervisory challenges and looking for growth opportunities through
acquisition of regionally dominated small and medium size banks. (UNI Report
in Herald)

INTERNET STILL EVOLVING: Thirty-five years after scientists at UCLA linked
two bulky computers using a 15-foot gray cable, testing a new way for
exchanging data over networks, what would ultimately become the Internet
remains a work in progress. University researchers are experimenting with
ways to increase its capacity and speed. Programmers are trying to imbue Web
pages with intelligence. And work is under way to re-engineer the network to
reduce spam and security troubles. (Anick Jesdanun in Herald)

RATAN AWARD FOR NAGVENKAR: Chairman and Founder Trustee of Ann Institute of
Hotel Management and catering Technology, Anandrao N Nagvenkar, was awarded
the "Rashtriya Ratan Award" in New Delhi recently. Nagvenkar was presented
the award at a symposium in the capital to mark the 60th birth anniversary
of former Prime Minister late Rajiv Gandhi. The award is the highest in the
country for distinguished service to inspire people, especially the younger
generation, to work for strengthening the national integrity. (GT)

PROF VELINGKAR TO RECEIVE NATIONAL AWARD: Prof Subhash Velingkar, principal
of Vidhya Prabhodini Higher Secondary School, Porvorim, will receive the
national award for excellence in the field of teaching from President APJ
Abdul Kalam on 5 September on the occasion of Teachers Day. (GT)

Is this required?. Only shows that these minister's are infact tainted,
crooks and corrupt to the core. If you are clean! why worry. Let the IT
sleuth's do their work!!

Lost trust? simply amazing. Now who has lost trust on whom?? Actually its a
big bonus if they keep their mouths shut.

he had lost trust in Central agencies after the unwarranted IT raid on Town

* BONDERAM: A traditional Harvest Festival held on the island of Divar in
Goa. The colourful event was organised on August 22 by St Mathias Sports
Club, Divar.

IT RAIDS AMBUSH ISIDORE, BABUSH: Income tax officials yesterday (August 31)
carried out simultaneous raids of residential and commercial establishments
of Town and Country Planning Minister, Atanasio Monserrate, former
Poinguinim MLA Isidore Fernandes and three other city-based businessmen
including a builder. This is the first time that residential and commercial
establishments belonging to a Cabinet minister has been raided by the IT
officials in the State. (GT)

IT'S A POLITICAL VENDETTA: Town and Country Planning Minister Atanasio
Monserrate said the raid smacked off political vendetta by the Congress. "I
went to the GPCC president Luizinho Faleiro's house along with the Transport
Minister Pandurang Madkaikar to wish him on his birthday on 26
August..Luizinho told me that I could pay Isidore the money but asked me
that the latter should not contest the bye-election." The raid is borne out
of the Congress motive to seek political revenge and settle scores, former
Poinguinim MLA Isidore Fernandes said. (GT)

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MAHARAJA MONSERATE: To his followers and
beneficiaries, Babush is a king with a heart. To his opponents he is a Robin
Hood who is no good. Love him, hate him or raid him, it's difficult to
ignore Atanasio Monserrate. If there is one Cabinet minister who knows how
to lead a life of luxury, it is Babush Monserrate. The Maharaja loves his
cars. And his car numbers. The cars are all lined up at his Taleigao
bungalow "Case Monseratte". (GT)

PARIKAR FOR SLAMMING THE DOORS ON CBI: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said
he had lost trust in Central agencies after the unwarranted IT raid on Town
and Country Planning Minister Atanasio Monserrate and would consider
withdrawal of consent to CBI to function in Goa. Speaking to reporters at
Monserrate's residence in Taleigao after the IT officers who had completed
the search operations had left, Parrikar alleged that the raid was
politically motivated and the officials had acted under the direction of the
Central government. (GT)

MAN STABBED: A 21-year-old mason, Mr Yasin Nadaf, originally from Belgaum,
but now residing in a rented room at Canca near Mapusa, was stabbed by a
resident - Manjunath - of an adjoining room late on August 30 night. (NT)

MMC'S REVENUE RECOVERY DIPS: Officially, Margao Municipality's tax arrears
has crossed Rs.3 crore. Unofficially, it's over Rs.5 crore. These figures
might indeed sound mindboggling, but revenue generation and collection by
the civic body in the state's commercial capital has dipped to all time low.
Be it the house tax, rents from buildings, tax on advertisements, etc, the
arrears appear mounting every year. (H)

WOMAN DIES OF BURN INJURIES: A 29-year-old woman - Sharal Almeida
Fernandes - from Taleigao succumbed to burn injuries sustained in an
accident on 26 August. Sharal was married to Ravindra Fernandes and was
residing at Goa Velha when the incident occurred. (GT)

MISHAP KILLS OLD WOMAN: One P Fillomena Pinto, 70, resident of Velim, was
killed when she was hit by an oncoming motorbike at Baradi, Velim, on August
30. (GT)

MISSING GIRL TRACED: A minor girl aged 14 years, who went missing from her
house at Raia-Damon, was located at Sarzora village on August 31. (H)

HELD FOR MOLESTATION: Colva police arrested a security man, Raju Thapa, for
allegedly molesting the wife of his colleague at Calvaddo-Benaulim on August
31. The incident occurred the previous night when the accused went to the
house of the victim and after having a couple of drinks allegedly molested
the 33-year-old woman. (H)

TARGET FOR CASHEW PLANTATION: The Agriculture department has already met the
set target for the State for bringing land under cashew plantation for the
year 2004-05. The total target set for coverage under area expansion was 300
hectare and Goa has already achieved it. The target for re-planting and
rejuvenation was 700 hectare and Goa has achieved 800 hectare in this
category. According to the Asst Director of Agriculture (Cashew), Mr VM
Khandeparkar, about 2.20 lakh of cashew grafts of high yield varieties like
Vengurla, 4, Vengurla 7, Vengurla 8 and Bali 2 were distributed and have
been planted by cashew farmers in Goa this year. (NT)

MICKKY'S EXEMPTION IN COURT: The State has vehemently opposed the
application of former Tourism Minister, Mickky Pacheco, seeking exemption
from appearance in the court in the infamous Betalbatim shack burning case.
(H)

SPEED-BREAKERS AT VELIM: Two years after the proposal was first mooted by
the local village panchayat, the district authorities finally notified four
speed-breakers at the accident prone Velim market area. (H)

DIGITAL VIDEO EXHIBITION: A Exhibition on Digital Video to be held on
September 3 at Hotel Mandovi, Panjim, from 11 am to 4 pm, featuring a range
of digital video products of interest to Film-makers, Event video-graphers,
Photographers, Wedding video-graphers, amateur video-graphers and anyone
interested in digital video filming and editing. On display will be the
latest professional DV cameras from Panasonic and video editing cards from
Pinnacle. The exhibition is being presented by Visual Technologies India
Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, and Apna Studio Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, authorized distributor
and dealer for Panasonic professional DV cameras. Local sales and support is
available through us for all their products. (Allain Saldanha Proprietor,

COURSE IN SPANISH: Alliance Francais de Goa will be launching a beginners
course in Spanish on September 15 and will be of 80 hours duration. The
course will be conducted by a native speaker of Spanish, Jorge Aguirrre and
will focus on oral and written Spanish.

RICH TRIBUTES PAID TO DR MARTINS: Freedom Fighters, contemporaries and
younger admirers paid rich tributes to the late Dr Jose Francisco Martins at
a condolence meeting held at Institute Menezes Braganza hall on August 30.
Martins, who passed away a month ago, was described as the "leading figure"
among the freedom fighters who organised the movement against the Portuguese
rule within the Goan boundaries in the early 1950s. (H)

DRAWING VISITORS BY ITS BEAUTY: The beautiful village of Verna, situated 10
km from Margao, is rich in water resources with numerous lakes, ponds, tanks
and springs that it has in abundance. This has certainly been very rewarding
for local farmers to cultivate paddy and vegetables. The village can
undoubtedly be a hot spot for water harvesting projects which could save
litres of water that pours down in the lakes and ponds from hills and the
rocky terrain of Verna. The ward Ambllor, surrounded by thick trees and
knolls, has a spring covered with rocks, which forms a very impressive
spectacle for visitors thronging the place. (Roque Dias in NT)

GOAN ART OF CONSTRUCTION: So it did not come as a surprise to read that in
Margao there are over 15,000 unlicensed shops. Did it come as a surprise -
not in the least because in Goa, illegal construction has become such a fine
art. It has become so sophisticated that it is easier to build an illegal
construction than get permission for a genuine one. Yes, even with official'
s knowledge. And what is shocking is that parties who make a big song and
dance about supporting one particular type of demolition turn a blind eye to
all the illegal construction that surrounds that demolished structure. (Edit

BANKS TRYING TO EXPAND CAPITAL BASE: The managements of several commercial
banks in India are currently engaged in finding out the ways and means to
expand their capital base, upgrading their technology platform to meet the
supervisory challenges and looking for growth opportunities through
acquisition of regionally dominated small and medium size banks. (UNI Report
in Herald)

INTERNET STILL EVOLVING: Thirty-five years after scientists at UCLA linked
two bulky computers using a 15-foot gray cable, testing a new way for
exchanging data over networks, what would ultimately become the Internet
remains a work in progress. University researchers are experimenting with
ways to increase its capacity and speed. Programmers are trying to imbue Web

reduce spam and security troubles. (Anick Jesdanun in Herald)

RICH TRIBUTES PAID TO DR MARTINS: Freedom Fighters, contemporaries and
younger admirers paid rich tributes to the late Dr Jose Francisco Martins at
a condolence meeting held at Institute Menezes Braganza hall on August 30.
Martins, who passed away a month ago, was described as the "leading figure"
among the freedom fighters who organised the movement against the Portuguese
rule within the Goan boundaries in the early 1950s. (H)

DRAWING VISITORS BY ITS BEAUTY: The beautiful village of Verna, situated 10
km from Margao, is rich in water resources with numerous lakes, ponds, tanks
and springs that it has in abundance. This has certainly been very rewarding
for local farmers to cultivate paddy and vegetables. The village can
undoubtedly be a hot spot for water harvesting projects which could save
litres of water that pours down in the lakes and ponds from hills and the
rocky terrain of Verna. The ward Ambllor, surrounded by thick trees and
knolls, has a spring covered with rocks, which forms a very impressive
spectacle for visitors thronging the place. (Roque Dias in NT)

GOAN ART OF CONSTRUCTION: So it did not come as a surprise to read that in
Margao there are over 15,000 unlicensed shops. Did it come as a surprise -
not in the least because in Goa, illegal construction has become such a fine
art. It has become so sophisticated that it is easier to build an illegal
construction than get permission for a genuine one. Yes, even with official'
s knowledge. And what is shocking is that parties who make a big song and
dance about supporting one particular type of demolition turn a blind eye to
all the illegal construction that surrounds that demolished structure. (Edit

BANKS TRYING TO EXPAND CAPITAL BASE: The managements of several commercial
banks in India are currently engaged in finding out the ways and means to

acquisition of regionally dominated small and medium size banks. (UNI Report
in Herald)

INTERNET STILL EVOLVING: Thirty-five years after scientists at UCLA linked
two bulky computers using a 15-foot gray cable, testing a new way for
exchanging data over networks, what would ultimately become the Internet
remains a work in progress. University researchers are experimenting with
ways to increase its capacity and speed. Programmers are trying to imbue Web
pages with intelligence. And work is under way to re-engineer the network to
reduce spam and security troubles. (Anick Jesdanun in Herald)

RATAN AWARD FOR NAGVENKAR: Chairman and Founder Trustee of Ann Institute of

PARIKAR FOR SLAMMING THE DOORS ON CBI: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said
he had lost trust in Central agencies after the unwarranted IT raid on Town

the search operations had left, Parrikar alleged that the raid was
politically motivated and the officials had acted under the direction of the

* BONDERAM: A traditional Harvest Festival held on the island of Divar in
Goa. The colourful event was organised on August 22 by St Mathias Sports
Club, Divar.

IT RAIDS AMBUSH ISIDORE, BABUSH: Income tax officials yesterday (August 31)
carried out simultaneous raids of residential and commercial establishments
of Town and Country Planning Minister, Atanasio Monserrate, former
Poinguinim MLA Isidore Fernandes and three other city-based businessmen
including a builder. This is the first time that residential and commercial
establishments belonging to a Cabinet minister has been raided by the IT
officials in the State. (GT)

IT'S A POLITICAL VENDETTA: Town and Country Planning Minister Atanasio
Monserrate said the raid smacked off political vendetta by the Congress. "I
went to the GPCC president Luizinho Faleiro's house along with the Transport
Minister Pandurang Madkaikar to wish him on his birthday on 26
August..Luizinho told me that I could pay Isidore the money but asked me
that the latter should not contest the bye-election." The raid is borne out
of the Congress motive to seek political revenge and settle scores, former
Poinguinim MLA Isidore Fernandes said. (GT)

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MAHARAJA MONSERATE: To his followers and
beneficiaries, Babush is a king with a heart. To his opponents he is a Robin
Hood who is no good. Love him, hate him or raid him, it's difficult to
ignore Atanasio Monserrate. If there is one Cabinet minister who knows how
to lead a life of luxury, it is Babush Monserrate. The Maharaja loves his
cars. And his car numbers. The cars are all lined up at his Taleigao
bungalow "Case Monseratte". (GT)

PARIKAR FOR SLAMMING THE DOORS ON CBI: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said
he had lost trust in Central agencies after the unwarranted IT raid on Town
and Country Planning Minister Atanasio Monserrate and would consider
withdrawal of consent to CBI to function in Goa. Speaking to reporters at
Monserrate's residence in Taleigao after the IT officers who had completed
the search operations had left, Parrikar alleged that the raid was
politically motivated and the officials had acted under the direction of the
Central government. (GT)

MAN STABBED: A 21-year-old mason, Mr Yasin Nadaf, originally from Belgaum,
but now residing in a rented room at Canca near Mapusa, was stabbed by a
resident - Manjunath - of an adjoining room late on August 30 night. (NT)

MMC'S REVENUE RECOVERY DIPS: Officially, Margao Municipality's tax arrears
has crossed Rs.3 crore. Unofficially, it's over Rs.5 crore. These figures
might indeed sound mindboggling, but revenue generation and collection by
the civic body in the state's commercial capital has dipped to all time low.
Be it the house tax, rents from buildings, tax on advertisements, etc, the
arrears appear mounting every year. (H)

WOMAN DIES OF BURN INJURIES: A 29-year-old woman - Sharal Almeida
Fernandes - from Taleigao succumbed to burn injuries sustained in an
accident on 26 August. Sharal was married to Ravindra Fernandes and was
residing at Goa Velha when the incident occurred. (GT)

MISHAP KILLS OLD WOMAN: One P Fillomena Pinto, 70, resident of Velim, was
killed when she was hit by an oncoming motorbike at Baradi, Velim, on August
30. (GT)

MISSING GIRL TRACED: A minor girl aged 14 years, who went missing from her
house at Raia-Damon, was located at Sarzora village on August 31. (H)

HELD FOR MOLESTATION: Colva police arrested a security man, Raju Thapa, for
allegedly molesting the wife of his colleague at Calvaddo-Benaulim on August
31. The incident occurred the previous night when the accused went to the
house of the victim and after having a couple of drinks allegedly molested
the 33-year-old woman. (H)

TARGET FOR CASHEW PLANTATION: The Agriculture department has already met the
set target for the State for bringing land under cashew plantation for the
year 2004-05. The total target set for coverage under area expansion was 300
hectare and Goa has already achieved it. The target for re-planting and
rejuvenation was 700 hectare and Goa has achieved 800 hectare in this
category. According to the Asst Director of Agriculture (Cashew), Mr VM
Khandeparkar, about 2.20 lakh of cashew grafts of high yield varieties like
Vengurla, 4, Vengurla 7, Vengurla 8 and Bali 2 were distributed and have
been planted by cashew farmers in Goa this year. (NT)

MICKKY'S EXEMPTION IN COURT: The State has vehemently opposed the
application of former Tourism Minister, Mickky Pacheco, seeking exemption
from appearance in the court in the infamous Betalbatim shack burning case.
