TiTs & BiTs (010)
And as if the election commission , Lyngdoh & company has no other work than to interfere in the affairs of the ruling masters from Dilli & Gujarat. They must behave like the dogs who must sit and get up when the masters say so. And they must lap their master’s feet when the masters shred the electoral rolls of the muslim voters who would never vote for the masters. And this Modi Xerox has successfully copied a page from the magic book of his Goan counterpart to learn how to successfully shred the names of unlikely voters and win elections.
And those who have been persecuting the Chief Minister of Goa bab Manohar Parrikar for his lack of administrative sense and who were perpetually blaming the administration to be lax , where its staff was freely allowed to roam the market places and deliver groceries and fish home during their working hours should be happy that this market trips by the government department staff has been stopped all together. Commendation and congratulations are in order for Manohar Parrikar bab, for, now the staff does the shopping sitting at their desks and without having to go to the market. One can buy anything from papads, laddoos, chokrios, bangles, wrist watches sarees, towels and even fresh fish including Moira bananas without having a bother in the world and while scrutinizing office files. And those people who will still be cribbing should be happy that the department staff is atleast in their respective chairs instead of being in the market.
And talking of Moira bananas these very special bananas are in news after a long period of hybernation.We Moidekars were worried of our impending loss of Banana identity. But thanks to the consulting editor of “Mapusa Plus” Miguel Braganza , our Moira bananas are back in the Mapusa market. And as for Moidekars going bananas, it is a foregone conclusion. No matter what, no one else in Goa can displace Moidekars from this distinguished place. But then, the bulk of the exposure to Moira Bananas has been Mapusa, specially the Braganza residence at Altinho. His parents were over - exposed to the viles of Moira and its bananas as the teachers of the same school that his sisters are presently the Headmistress and a teacher respectively. His mother being my very dear & loved class teacher, a visit to whom I have to execute ( and which I have been postponing) , before she calls it a day. It would seem that Mapusa plus is being subsidized wholesale within the family. However, a few clarifications are necessary in order to set some records straight, like, did the students were forced to sign the ready prepared petition and if some senior student refused to sign the same. Like, why no mention is made of the sudden transfer of another teacher who happens to be the sister-in-law of the trouble maker Moidekar parent (victimization?). Like, if the parent’s meeting was really called by the parents. Like, how come the Zilla politician who is not a parent chaired this parent’s meet. Like, Y were the bad parent duo not invited for this meet. Like, why did the HM address this meet and why was it adjourned when one dissenting parent asked bold questions. Like, Y the little daughter of the transferred teacher who happens to be the neice of trouble maker Moidekar who fractured her arm at 0930 hrs was kept on pain killer tablets until 1400 hours until her father shifted her to the GMC. And like, Y did this whole tamasha not controlled within the school to the satisfaction of all. Do we see some high profile one-up-manship here? The HM, the Principal, the Diocesan Society (Fr. Tony Salema) and the Director of Education must answer these questions of which there could be many many more like why do bright students always accuse the best teachers. But then these things are best left alone. However, it is pertinent say here that irrespective of where they are grown, Moira bananas will always remain Moira bananas.
