H: Save Goa! -P.K. Jones, UK (letter to Editor)

I would like to express my concern about Goa, during the last twelve years I
have been coming as a tourist and an investor. It has not only changed but
going filthier. There is stinking rubbish and garbage in towns and on
beaches
behind the shacks. It is so unhygienic, it is unbelievable! Do Goans have
no respect for their environment? It is not a beautiful Goa as the media
says. Long term tourists are having second thoughts and are looking for new,
more cleaner and hygienic place. Short term tourists see the filth and
rubbish and do not want to come back again. The percentage will go down more
next season. Would the tourism minister explain to us regarding where all
the tourism revenue goes? Surely it does not go into infrastructure and a
cleaner Goa.. Save Goa before it is too late.

[ Where the money goes?? Tourism Minister?? - Jones, take a trip to
Benaulim's prized bull-fights. The fattest bull is your answer]

IT is indeed a sad scene that beach umbrellas have begun encroaching on
public beaches. I hope we are not evolving into a narcissistic society, a
society more interested in enriching individual purses than in Goa's natural
beauty. Some years ago when Mr. Bill Clinton had visited the Taj on his
official tour, he had remarked: "There are only two types of tourists, those
who have visited the Taj and those who haven't. At that time, I had the
same feelings for Goa too. I do want to believe the same now too. Our
innocent children want to run around and play on our beaches, unhindered by
our rich umbrellas,. We yearn to enjoy the serenity of our uncluttered
beaches too. Simple can be beautiful. Simple can be soothing. Let's keep Goa
simple and clean and make it even richer.

[The life membership form of a simple yet effective & determined 'political
will' that will
keep Goa simple, clean and well managed is in the post already. Simple to
fill in. Should
not be too difficult to get thro' the slot of the post box. Try it Dr.
Heble???]

TCP files case on hill cutting - Herald 5/3/08 (staff reporter)

Panjim, March 14 - TCP has filed a case under section 17A for illegal hill
cutting at Tollem, Aldona, while the district administration stopped the
work. According to North Goa Collectorate sources, the hill-cutting was
being undertaken in a private property and alleged suspected the involvement
of a ZP member. Work was being carried out in the night under cover of
darkness. On receipt of a complaint, the administration along with
sub-divisional magistrate, Bardez stopped the hill cutting and seized the
bulldozer at the site.

[ A complaint was lodged with the TCP department in the morning ( 4/March)
by a local resident of mass scale tree felling and hill cutting to make
plots, otherwise in the cover of the night for last almost 15 days, in broad
daylight on this day probably having been emboldened. I get a call at 3 p.m.
that nothing is happening, that the work is merrily going on. I alerted
the Collector who moved so fast on the sleeping TCP, Dy. Collector, Mapusa
and the police, that the culprit Mr. Freddy Fernandes, the ZP member was
caught with his pants down. Come next election, he will probably contest the
Aldona seat on the Congress ticket (now that his mentor Dayanand Narvekar
will be moving to the new Constituency of Porvorim) and will probably win
too. Its time to take revenge . Goa ! here I come]

**
NT: Foreign tourists' arrival below expectation.
[Blame it on dirty stinking beaches, ear splitting noise generating
shacks, rapes and fleecing them naked]

NT: CM monitoring UK girl's death case: Soni (Union Tourism & Culture
Minister Ms. Ambika Soni)
[He swears he has detected a flutter of a pulse ]

NT: BCCI announces Rs. 10 cr award for Indian team.
[Will they take in an athletic 60 year old? I have decided to pack my bags
and leave non-remunerative 'Su-Raj Party' for crore-pati prospects]

NT: Kashmir Singh returns home after 35 yrs in Pak jails.
[And Kashmir-ji! In all those 61 years that you have given headaches to
India you haven't found your feet to move over to Afghanistan??]

H: Zuari Bridge is cracking.
[ London bridge is yet to fall despite pleadings from the world of Children.
Better you fall down instead of being the milching cow for politicians. Last
repairs in 1999 you gobbled 7 crores of the heard-earned tax payer's money.

H: Save Goa! -P.K. Jones, UK (letter to Editor)

I would like to express my concern about Goa, during the last twelve years I
have been coming as a tourist and an investor. It has not only changed but
going filthier. There is stinking rubbish and garbage in towns and on
beaches
behind the shacks. It is so unhygienic, it is unbelievable! Do Goans have
no respect for their environment? It is not a beautiful Goa as the media
says. Long term tourists are having second thoughts and are looking for new,
more cleaner and hygienic place. Short term tourists see the filth and
rubbish and do not want to come back again. The percentage will go down more
next season. Would the tourism minister explain to us regarding where all
the tourism revenue goes? Surely it does not go into infrastructure and a
cleaner Goa.. Save Goa before it is too late.

[ Where the money goes?? Tourism Minister?? - Jones, take a trip to
Benaulim's prized bull-fights. The fattest bull is your answer]

NT: Nuisance on Beaches - Samir Heble via e-mail (letter to Editor)

IT is indeed a sad scene that beach umbrellas have begun encroaching on
public beaches. I hope we are not evolving into a narcissistic society, a
society more interested in enriching individual purses than in Goa's natural
beauty. Some years ago when Mr. Bill Clinton had visited the Taj on his
official tour, he had remarked: "There are only two types of tourists, those
who have visited the Taj and those who haven't. At that time, I had the
same feelings for Goa too. I do want to believe the same now too. Our
innocent children want to run around and play on our beaches, unhindered by
our rich umbrellas,. We yearn to enjoy the serenity of our uncluttered
beaches too. Simple can be beautiful. Simple can be soothing. Let's keep Goa
simple and clean and make it even richer.

[The life membership form of a simple yet effective & determined 'political
will' that will
keep Goa simple, clean and well managed is in the post already. Simple to
fill in. Should
not be too difficult to get thro' the slot of the post box. Try it Dr.
Heble???]

TCP files case on hill cutting - Herald 5/3/08 (staff reporter)

Panjim, March 14 - TCP has filed a case under section 17A for illegal hill
cutting at Tollem, Aldona, while the district administration stopped the
work. According to North Goa Collectorate sources, the hill-cutting was
being undertaken in a private property and alleged suspected the involvement
of a ZP member. Work was being carried out in the night under cover of
darkness. On receipt of a complaint, the administration along with
sub-divisional magistrate, Bardez stopped the hill cutting and seized the
bulldozer at the site.

[ A complaint was lodged with the TCP department in the morning ( 4/March)
by a local resident of mass scale tree felling and hill cutting to make
plots, otherwise in the cover of the night for last almost 15 days, in broad
daylight on this day probably having been emboldened. I get a call at 3 p.m.
that nothing is happening, that the work is merrily going on. I alerted
the Collector who moved so fast on the sleeping TCP, Dy. Collector, Mapusa
and the police, that the culprit Mr. Freddy Fernandes, the ZP member was
caught with his pants down. Come next election, he will probably contest the
Aldona seat on the Congress ticket (now that his mentor Dayanand Narvekar
will be moving to the new Constituency of Porvorim) and will probably win
too. Its time to take revenge . Goa ! here I come]
