Tits & Bits .003
The world, as we see today, is become very complex and vicious. If one has to have ones own way to defy the prevailing laws, rules and regulations, one needs to cultivate a “godfather” which goes by another name of “immunity”, also called “protection”. It goes without saying that if one does not want to get wet in the rains, one has to have an open umbrella over one’s head. Take the case of Laloo Prasad Yadav. He got raided by the IT when he got his first daughter married in extravaganza. He opened his umbrella against IT raids by getting his second daughter married into the IT family. Likewise, our dada trawler owners had their umbrella in the Goa legislative assembly. Our enterprising builders and business houses in Goa like the Navelcar builders and Nova Goakars of Panjim have their respective umbrellas in the BJP. Whereas, the last year’s school computerization tender for 700 computers went in exchange for a beautiful office for the BJP, courtesy Nova Goakars., the Navelcars, on the other hand, are probably benefiting hugely through the Nelson’s Eye of the authorities, specially the PMC, as far as the terrace floor extension of the Navelcar Trade Centre, opposite the Azad Maidan is concerned. It is very tricky. The work is sheltered from direct view. One has to be specially looking for it to notice it. We shall be extremely happy if this is legit and the PMC treasury is benefiting from this activity.
Hello! K..rrrr Krrrr Hello! ... Patricia Pinto? Oh! these Goa telephones.! Never there when you want them bad.
And it was a shock to us that our Police Chief Gulcharand Singh Sandu was struck down by a second stroke in as many days and is now recuperating in the ICU. We wish him a speedy recovery. The mention of the ICU brings back sweet memories. The ICUs had become the hiding hole, an alternative to the police lock-ups for our most enterprising goan people’s representatives like Dayanand Narvekar, Mauvin Godinho and Somnath Zuwarkar when Manohar Parrikar went riding the high horse like “Zorro” (Never mind that Parrikar has given up the ‘Zorro’ style now). Ofcourse, I am not slanting here, but the recent Indian Oil pilferage must have sent a few heartbeats haywire, specially in the wake of the reported payoff to the high ranking police officials that I have mentioned earlier. In the Hindu mythology, the pantheon of Gods consists of zillion deities, I am told, of whom Lord “INDRA” is the chief. May the Indra Dev pacify some of the hearts and heartbeats that are going haywire in the highly placed chests, on the IOC pilferage account .
