Here's why we do not need a Krutadnyata fund... When we have such enterprising journalists around, one feels so hopeful about the future of journalism in the state.
The journalist who we talk about below, is a guy who has won awards for excelling in journalism. And as far we know, he has also served on the executive committe of the Goa Union of Journalists (GUJ). He works as a sub editor for a biggish Marathi paper and has a namesake whose byline features regularly in a national English daily. The only difference is the way they spell their surnames.
This chap is often found at Alisha bar and restaurant at Porvorim near the new assembly complex. The bar is owned by Narsinha Salgaonkar who sometime during these elections, suddenly felt the urge to fry bigger fish than the ones available at his popular restaurant.

Little did he know that he'd be left writhing like a fish out of water some time later.
The sub editor along with an ex employee of the same organisation promised Salgaonkar a BJP ticket from Aldona. Salgaounkar, who was once a supporter of Dayanand Narvekar was hurt this time for some reason and wanted desperately to contest against Narvekar.

Our sub editor, lets calls him Mr R is a well known BJP activist made an arrangement to admit Salgaounkar in BJP. But failed to give him a ticket. Mr R's friend, lets call him Mr J who is now running a private advertisement agency promised Salgaounkar monetary help from Babush to buy off the ticket.
Salgaonkar has always had a soft corner for journalists all this while... Hopefully this will change... Hey but isn't his food good?

Why o why do people fall for 'good' food?

Bigger the fish the better? Not necessarily.. The oil being used is very important. To save costs, restaurant owners recycle cooking oil... that's bad.

So while you think you are getting a cheap/free meal, it might hasten a heart attack.

You guys are adults. The only way you grow now is side wards!

Haven't some of you guys learnt by now, that there is no such thing as a free meal?
