Like a child who feels secured in his/hers parents arms, it is the government’s responsibility to make the general public feel secured under their governance but successive elected governments in Goa since liberation miserably failed when it comes to the security and safety of its own people. Nature’s daring son, Father Bismarque Dias dies a mysterious death while fighting for mother nature, a six-year-old, innocent daughter of Goa gets raped within the school premises with our authorities hardly putting any efforts to nab the culprits, The body of youth from Aldona just goes missing while preserved in the mortuary and the list goes on. With these kind of serious incidents reported in this one time very peaceful state of Goa, how common people can trust these elected governments? Thanks to the Army, Air Force and all those great sons of our country who laid their lives guarding our borders but who will guard us against these political mafias who are all out to sell my Goa in the name of development which in reality is a total destruction?
The writing on the wall is very much clear, every inch of our fertile land will be converted into concrete structures, highly polluting industries will be dumped on us, all hilly terrain will be razed. Forest area will be sold and the habitat surviving in the forest will be declared as vermin. Our rivers been sold, Green Goa will be converted into a coal hub. People have already started experiencing the ugly effects of Coal but they care damn to our health. Our so-called elected governments allowed thousands of coconut trees to make way for a beer factory when Goa had sufficient beer and we make queues to accept coconut samplings through the dirty hands of politicians. Believe me; these governments which we have been electing will make sure that no green natural patch in Goa remains. Now the government is all out to sell out beautiful coastline. The time is not very far when Goa will only remain in Carnival floats. The elected mafias is very well aware and we Goans have proved are incapacity to fight for Goa. We are a divided lot and known for pulling down the few real, genuine fighters for Goa.
Political parties like Congress and BJP remembers special status for Goa only at the time of elections. It is the Congress who started the selling of Goa, the BJP followed and the present dispensation is in a very much hurry in the total ruin of Goa.The destroyers may succeed in the total destruction of Goa but they will not be spared by the divine intervention. Goa’s Gods are the strongest of all Gods and the nature destroyers will severely pay for their sins, one day, some day and the day is not very far.
Last but not the least, still there’s a lot good remaining in Goa and we can still fight back. Over twenty thousand faithful walked in the walking pilgrimage to Sancoale during the early morning hours and how’s that we are sleeping during broad daylight when Goa been raped on daily basis? Let’s fight back, we can do it and we have to do it. If not then we will be miserably cursed by our future generations who are yet to see the light of this world. We come with nothing and go with nothing so let us destroy nothing. Finally in dust we return.
