Ok guys, here one more from our DIGU-DEKHO series. You have the idol of Durga on your extreme right crushing the demon. Then, it's either Digu's bulge or his devotion that makes him lean towards the idol. He is followed by a Mr Pal from some Bong association. Then the lady in purple is Mrs Digu and now now now... the couple of on the extreme left... Srinivas Dempo and his wife and executive director of Navhind Papers, Pallavi. And guess you guys don't have to think too hard to figure in which newspaper this pic got printed... Oh yes The Navhind Times and this time round Gomantak Times too. Is the Dempo couple going in for an image makeover or something? Or is it that these guys are trying very hard to mollycoddle Digu for some reason! Digu never featured in their scheme of things when he was a 'mere' power minister... We didn't see no 'see we are together' pictures then...

Here's a major example about the morons who run the media in Goa. Last weekend the Goa Marathi Patrakar Sangh and the NIO organized a very informative workshop on ill-effects of global warming which cause sea levels to rise.

As per data provided by the NIO, parts of Panjim and the coastal belt would be under water. Some of the info already indicated that some parts of Goa have already lost beaches due to rise in sea levels by just a few millimetres.

Claude Alvares pointed out how the Morjim beach is being swallowed by the sea.

But did any of the main Goan papers cover the event? No. Most didn't even bother to send reporters though a few intrepid souls came of their own volition.

Only Sunaparant, the Konkani paper, covered this in a decent way. Editor Sandesh Prabhudessai even put in an appearance.

But for Navhind Times and Herald, coastal Goa could have been another planet altogether.

Only you guys should have seen the national participation. ToI, Star News, Hindu and journos from Calcutta and Orissa.

The Goan media needs to be pricked up the appropriate orifice, I say.
