Do we need - A Goan Community Organisation? Message To: goanet at
goanet.org | Sent: 18 July 2011 23:51
I attach an article in which I have expressed my
views on the kind of organisation that might best
serve an overseas Goan community. It may be of
interest to your readers and, in particular, to
those attending the forthcoming Global Goans
Convention in London from 22 July.
I have decided to put these thoughts together in the
hope that it will help writers and publishers.
After three days of book-selling, the first two days
at the (UK Goan) Convention to a select crowd of
approximately 200 people each day, and the last day
at the festival to a crowd of approximately 5000
people, I have come to the hideous conclusion that
we are a society that does not read. Not only that,
we are a society that probably has contempt for
stimulation caused by anything other than feni. (Ok,
these statements are exaggerated because I am
reeling from a combination fatigue and assorted
disorders). But you can ask Rajendra Talak (the
producer of O Maria) and the lovely actress Priyanka
with whom I shared stall-space and delicious
chit-chat, if you want a second opinion.
a people, we Goans routinely pull down one another.
Bad mouthing is a State pastime. We lack the
entrepreneurial and organisational gene. So this
impacts us all the more.

Westend Seniors Club, Toronto By Lenny Lopes
Kudos to the Toronto Westend Seniors Club who have
once again held another superb event, the “Bazaar
Day” on Friday, July 15, 2011 at the Fairfield
Centre, Etobicoke. The previous two very successful
events namely, “The Crazy Hat Day” and “Beach Party”
were both, not only a tremendous success, but also
thoroughly enjoyed by the members and their guests.

of the hottest day so far and tomorrow is gonna be a
scorcher. I couldn’t even stand on my backyard it
was scorching hot. I had to wait to cool a bit to
water my garden. I have not been doing any outdoor
activities lately as I get exhausted if I stand
outside for a while, so I am trying to hide from the
heat. For dinner, I made Goan fish curry served with
red rice. Also, I made Mango chammanthi or raw mango
combined with grated coconut and fish fry. It was a

The Goan Pig Armand Rodrigues
The name of no animal is more maligned in any
language than that of the humble pig. Swine, hog and
boar are used as synonyms. Ass, donkey, cat and
others cannot hold the candle to Pig when it comes
to derogatory usage. No other three-letter word
conveys a better connotation of a greedy, dirty,
smelly, sulky, immoral, obstinate or annoying
person. Any wonder feminists use it in invectives
like male chauvinist pig?
