1/4 This family heirloom was stolen in #Goa in June 2020. There is a slim chance that it will be recovered, but my late grandma would be sad if we didn’t try. Please retweet. @thatdoggonelady @smitagnair @vmingoa @alakasahani @PoonamSaxena_ @prudentgoa @oheraldogoa @Navhind_Times
2/4 The gold chain & pendant in the photo were also stolen. They must have been melted down by now. But we suspect it will be difficult for the criminals to dispose of the larger necklace because it will be difficult to melt down (the gold balls are gold leaf on some kind of wax)
3/4 My mother has somewhat reconciled to the loss of her valuables, but the fact that this heirloom was taken is upsetting. It has been handed down from matriarch to matriarch over the generations. According to family tradition, it rightfully belongs to my 11-year-old niece.

Francis Xavier who is considered by Christian religious leaders as a saint and a miraculous person, landed in Goa on 6th May 1542 with a resolve to uproot paganism from Indian soil and replacing it with Christianity.
And so all plans of persecution and oppression of the Hindus came along with him. All religious policies and procedures of forcible and fraudulent conversions and demolitions of the Hindu Temples and idols were undertaken under his guidance and missionary zeal.

After defection politics of 90s, mining lease imbroglio, untimely demise of a political colossus, trend of midnight mergers Goa, has been hurtling from crisis to crisis when #COVID19Pandemic hit. On #goastatehoodday, I pray for all #Goenkars to unite for restoring Goa's glory.
Goa is fortunate to have the sage advice of many senior leaders & dynamic young like @DrPramodPSawant @visrane @VijaiSardesai @sidkuks @RohanKhaunte @ReginaldoGoa who need to work like force multipliers on a war footing to deliver Goa out of this unprecedented multipronged crisis
#Goenkars & balanced members of media like @PramodGoa @sandeshgoa among others, must exert enough pressure to put governance delivery firmly on the forefront & avoid cynicism, paranoia & clamour for financially profligate packages. Good governance will take care in due time.

THREAD: So here’s what went down in #Goa after Sunday’s #JanataCurfew that was put in place by the Centre as a trial run to the #CoronavirusLockdown.

Without notice, on March 22 itself, @goacm announced that the state govt would be extending the curfew by three more days. (1)
We are informed that there is no need to panic, as groceries and other essential services wouldn’t be impacted. The only difference being that instead of staying open all day, grocery stores would now be open only from 6am to 11am. That was the first bad move. (2)
The very next morning, people thronged to the stores. Because stores were open for such a small window of time, everyone was out trying to get supplies at the same time. Many opted to hoard, while many others chose to be responsible citizens and buy only what was needed. (3).

Hello mumbai dilli wallas. This is a short appeal for those of you who love Goa and are planning to come here this season. Or ever. 1. Refuse plastic bottles of water. Carry water bottles. Everyone is happy to refill with filtered water. It’s safe. Tastier.
2. Don’t eat Lays chips. Don’t eat any thing from packets. There’s a garbage crisis. Don’t add to it. Carry your empty beer cans bottles if you’re drinking outdoors.
3. Don’t drive fast. People live in both Sides of the road. It’s their home. 40 is fast. Amble. Get Goa speed. It’s super fun.

Today marked five years since #NarendraDabholkar was assassinated while on his morning walk in Pune (thread)

That act robbed Maharashtra and the rest of the country of one of the finest rationalist minds and dogged anti-superstition activists.

#NarendraDabholkar was 67 yrs old
For 18 long years, #NarendraDabholkar and his compatriots had campaigned for an anti-superstition anti-black magic law.
They were convinced that poorest/weakest people were being exploited under the rubric of religious practices though these had little or no religious sanction
On Aug 26, 2013, less than a week after #NarendraDabholkar was shot dead, the Maharashtra govt promulgated an ordinance. And formalised the law in December that year.

Since then, the law has seen amendments which diluted it, the list of banned activities has been reducing.
