This three column photograph appeared in The Navhind Times a couple of days back. You see this small girl wearing this pink tee-shirt... she won the third place in the Global Goan children Art competition. Guys, perhaps you guys could be our sounding board for a moment. Shouldn't the kid who won the first place be in the foreground of this photo rather than this girl in pink who has won the third place? Isn't this the way it's supposed to be? Wonder why is this girl in pink out in front... Give it a thought. Wonder where's this kid from... She couldn't belong to Sanvordem, Curchorem, Honda any of these places, could she. Cause the dust and silt from the mines there would never allow for such cherubic face on a kid. Going to and from school would cover your face with that fine sort of silt, that would also eat its way into your lungs. She couldn't be from any of these places up there. She has the makings of someone whose frolicked in the highlands of Panaji. High altitude does that to you... lends you that pinkish glow on your cheeks.
Look up that caption again guys. Her name's Girija S S Dempo. The daughter of Srinivas and Pallavi Dempo, the owners of the Dempo group and The Navhind Times. Let kids be kids you TNT chappies. Come on... If some child has won the first slot through his or her efforts, don't push em in the background, just because your's owners daughter is also in that photograph too. Let kids be kids guys... Don't push your sycophancy to these levels. And Ms Pallavi Dempo, your daughter maybe number one in your eyes, in this public competition, she is still a joint third.

The kid who's looking through the corner of his eyes also appears to be in the same row as Dempo.

Perhaps Rane's paunch ousted the Dempo kid.

Well... atleast one kid has the honour of having Rane's hand on his shoulder.

Could it be ladies first? ;)

It's difficult to make out exact distances in a photo, but since I wasn't there, I take your word for it.

What more can you expect from Dhempes? These are the same guys are all out looting Goa to amass more and more wealth at any cost. Perhaps, they could a fraction of this loot on revitalizing the environment they are busy degrading and destroying or providing help to the villagers in those mining areas who don't even get proper drinking water.
As for Rane and his ilks, it will be better that the young kids are kept away from these sophisticated predators who are politically polluted, immoral, cancerous and dirty individuals--they are danger to a healthy society- quite frankly.

I guess this is the best that losers like you can do!!! Slamming the dempo's... It takes years of perseverance to get as close as they are.. losers like you dont even have an inkling of all the sweat and effort that goes behind all the succes that the dempo's have...
So stop writing and being a part of this cheap journalism.. and write something sensible.. besides its their paper.. they can fill it up with whtevr they want..
Dont read it if u have a problem with it.. and start your own paper and put the picture of the person who came first..
Losers like you.. let me say will never come even an inch close to Srinivas Dempo..
So stop this" notice their faults" attempts..
