Over the years we have been witnessing with deep anguish the sagging levels of Goa’s political class which is by the day only getting further corroded. The latest needless discourse over a particular caste being targeted is in utter bad taste.

This current debate has been disturbing to hear after having grown up in Ribandar through the years in the warmest company of a multitude of friends hailing from all creeds, communities and castes.We are all on a short voyage in this world, the end of which we know not. So let us live and cherish every day we have caring and loving for the entire community at large.

Infact my one and only great treasure and wealth today is those thousands of friends from all castes and creeds across Goa, around India and all over the world, and their warm friendship I always cherish.

The Political arena cannot be about personalities or religious and caste differences. It is much more than that! We need to rectify the decades of wilful neglect and stagnation of Goa by ensuring that we have politicians of competence, honesty, dedication, experience and selfless determination above all else.

We must always firmly believe that Temples, Mosques and the Churches besides other places of worship should be our focal points to unite diverse communities instead of creating rifts amongst us. We are all children of the one loving and tolerant God.
