My dear Friends,

With your prayers, support and blessings am turning 58 today. As Goa’s humble soldier, the task of serving the people is a commitment, which I will carry on till my very last breath. In all that I have done and not done, only God and the people at large will judge all my acts and deeds.

Over the last four decades raising issues against the illegalities of successive governments has not been an easy task. Truth hurts but it is only truth that will always ultimately prevail.  On the issues that I have raised over the years it has been the wrong doings of those in power regardless of which party has been ruling

In fighting against the government the threat of an attack on one’s life always looms.  But as always I remain unperturbed. I would rather die with a hope, rather than have hope die inside me. The dedicated prayers and the love showered by the common men across Goa and around the globe is what keeps me going. Let us never hesitate in taking the bull by the horn. The cancer of corruption, nepotism and bad governance in Goa needs to be dealt with an iron hand.

We need to maintain the spirit and keep on fighting. Life is a very short voyage, a journey, the end of which we know not. So let’s keep up the fight. We owe it to Goa, or else posterity may never forgive us for having silently allowed our once beautiful State to just pass away.

May the care, concern and compassion of every Goan wherever he or she is be always for Goa. We will all one day depart but our Goa must live. Let us never be mere spectators especially when anybody’s Human Rights are being violated.

It would be apt to remember the words of former Chief Justice Of India Justice R.M. Lodha, who, on 10 December, 2017 speaking on Human Rights Day, stated “The violators of human rights are not accountable to society. There is laxity in police action. This question is shaking me everyday.”

I shall always remain inspired and guided by those words of Lily Tomlin “The road to success is always under construction”

Am ever so indebted to you all for all your continued prayers and immense support,
