|WORLD GOA DAY-2007 - A MESSAGE TO GOANS WORLDWIDE|
WORLD GOA DAY-2007 MESSAGE TO GOANS WORLD-WIDE
The Goa Su-Raj Party was installed as the ‘SENTINEL’ for Goa in the year 2000, to guard against the dilution of Goa’s main-stays, namely : Goa’s Mother Tongue KONKANI, The Goan Identity, The Goan Culture and the all pervasive Goan Hospitality, through its dedicated and disciplined political initiative, most importantly, to send a signal to the world at large that Goa’s inborn natural ‘hospitality’ and ‘compassion’ should not be taken lightly.
Five years later, this initiative was given teeth on 20th. August, 2005 , the world wide commemorated and celebrated ‘ WORLD GOA DAY’ by officially releasing its ‘ROAD MAP FOR GOA’ at the hands of none other than Goa’s good-will initiator Dr. Francisco Colaco of Margao, at the roof-gardens of the ‘Manvin Hotel’ in Central Panjim.
Unfortunately OR fortunately, there seemed to be some sort of a ‘ROAD BLOCK’ in place, inhibiting the naturally expected free flow of good-will by the people of Goa towards this unique initiative. Unfortunately - because, the people of Goa were, and are, by and large, nauseated by the turn that Goa’s POLITICS has taken in recent years. Fortunately - because, perhaps the Super Natural Powers that be had probably recognized the true intentions of this initiative and did not want it to move too fast with the initial euphoria, to get derailed and thereby jeopardize the only good thing that has happened to GOA in a long time, to deprive the people of Goa of its tremendous benefits. In fact this ROAD BLOCK has helped this ‘Sentinel’ to grow firm roots in the red soil of ‘Mother Goa’ and has steadfastly persevered to remain intact with its founding ideology, helping to dispel any thoughts in the minds of the stake holders , i.e. the people of Goa, that it will evaporate into nothingness in its own time.
Seven long years have been a long time to grow roots. There does not seem to be any more need for this ROAD BLOCK to remain in place, especially when things are going from bad to worse with Goa politically, as well as otherwise. Therefore, the ROAD BLOCK must be pushed-over to one side, to clear the road that leads to the ‘GOA LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY COMPLEX’ at Alto Porvorim, for this initiative to take its legitimate seat of power.
And, what would be the most auspicious day to have this ROAD BLOCK pushed aside to allow this initiative to advance, than the WORLD GOA DAY-2007, which is commemorated and celebrated, today, the world-over by GOANS?.
We believe that the word ‘P A R T Y’ in the nomenclature of this unique initiative – ‘GOA SU-RAJ PARTY’ was that ROAD BLOCK which made people exercise caution in its acceptance, just to be safe not to be let down once again. If this is the case, then let this word ‘PARTY’, which brings awful tidings to mind be substituted by the word ‘initiative’ to make it the ‘GOA SU-RAJ INITIATIVE’. After all, this initiative is nothing but a stepping into the political ring of a ‘will to fight’ all green NGO to find green solutions to our political problems.
With the removal of the ROAD BLOCK, the ‘toll gate’ will also be dismantled to find in its place an out-stretched and friendly hand-shake to welcome GOANS in its fold so that they may march with it to realize their dreams and to help Goa to grow in leaps and bounds, not only for the benefit of the privileged, but for the benefit of all Goans.
Needless to say that ‘GOA SU-RAJ INITIATIVE’ wishes Goans across the world a Happy and Enjoyable WORLD GOA DAY-2007. May you raise your voices to the chorus of “I AM PROUD TO BE A GOAN”
