India’s PM urges end to violence against
women, Aug. 16
In his first Indian Independence Day speech,
Indian PM Narendra Modi came out strongly
against the key issue of sexual attacks on
women and provided needed leadership on some
key social and economic matters. This should
help not only heal the divisiveness and
communal wounds in the largest global
democracy but also would impress global
business decision-makers to increase their
investment in India, which is eager and
ready to do business.
may be original inhabitants of the State but
the tribals in Goa continue to be denied
their rightful place in mainstream society.
Cyril Fernandes’ book ‘ Justice at the
Grassroots’ which is a tribute to Antonio
Francisco Fernandes, a leader of Goa’s
tribal communities from Quelossim, brings
the tribal community out from the shadows.
Very little research has been carried out on
the ethnic tribes of Goa and this book
provides an insight into their history,
culture, struggles and plight today.
Fernandes finds that no one has put Goa’s
history into proper perspective and this
book, he claims, is his attempt to do so by
examining history from their standpoint.
Every once in a while I hear the snickers
when someone mispronounces a word or is not
able to string together a simple sentence
correctly in English. I’ve known and met
many people who have survived, and rather
well, despite not being able to speak a word
of it. Yes, here in Canada. And this has led
me to believe that not knowing English is
less of a tragedy that we make it out to be.
Coming from a country like India that was a
British colony, we’ve no doubt been led to
believe in the supremacy of the Queen’s
language. Look around and you will realize
that most (if not all) other countries that
stress on communicating primarily in English
have been under British rule at some time.
