Hahaha... check this Navhind Times story out guys... UB group has helped start a Primary Health Centre in Bethora and had Digu inaugurate it... This is what Digu said in presence of the United Breweries Goa hitman Govind Tiwari... “One should not wait for the government to provide all such facilities, instead, should pounce on the available health schemes provided by the private firms. I am so glad that the Bethora PHC will exclusively cater to liver transplants, considering the fact that the UB group which sells beer on almost every continent (those penguins just dont take to beer... damn) works like a beacon to liver related ailments." Digu also promised the UB group, that he would render every possible assistance vis a vis the Bethora PHC project, especially in light of Dr Amit Kumar's arrest, which could severly impede the supply of raw liver into the state... hehehe

Their products' abuse destroys the liver. They appease their conciences by providing some basic healthcare. I'm sure if they were sick they would avail of foreign treatment.

Why don't the journos do a story on the 'Kingfisher Villa', Sinquerim, which makes the High Tide Line irrelevant? Rules are for fools, so it would seem!

Today, Goa News died. Abandoned, Unsung, Raped, High & Dry. The owners of the Channel who have real estate under the name of Nirvana Nest in the State and put Goa News Stickers on their swanky cars and press cards to gain access and exert clout wherever needed. With the Channel died a unique experiment in the annals of Goan Journalism, an experiment of taking Goa across the globe via audio-visual medium. News that was straight, simple, uncoloured & unopinionated. True to its style HCN was there to gloat over the misfortunes of the 110 who were actually conned by the Management that is struggling with its news channels UP News & Haryana News and the wife & husband lawyer duo of Amit & Rasika Palyekar. One thing did stand it took a non-Goan bravado to start a Goan News & Current Affairs Channel that became the voice of the Konkan. from Chiplun till Belgaum, from Sholapur till year killed it. Adieu, Spirit of Goa.
