Hi fellas, been away for sometime... ya... But we are going to break a big, Big, BIg, BIG story within on the media within the week... Hope that makes up for our prolonged absence... You guys do try and look it up, ok...But in the meantime guys, if you see this man anywhere please try and drive some sense in him. This chap is Michael, Herald managing director Raul Fernandes's PA, who calls the shots at the Herald now. Why this guy has featured on PP is, cause in his cost cutting drive in the Herald, one of his first crackdowns was on a milk-packets. The Herald buys one litre of milk for its afternoon tea for a staff of nearly 70 and more. Michael has cut down the supply of milk virtually by half. So instead of the usual one litre milk, Herald staffers have to now make do with half a litre, which makes the chai look like mining slush.
And in case anyone decides to invite Michael home for a cup of tea, don't add any sugar, tell him you are cutting costs. He'll understand.

Getting a cup of tea in the Herald is much ado about nothing. If you are late you don't even get that mining slush in a chipped cup. Most newspaper offices have an unlimited supply of tea or coffee for their staff. But in the Herald, where some windows don't close and the rain pours in, how do you expect to get a decent cup of tea?

Why is a PA suddenly the expert on cost cutting? I think Michael has overstepped his boundaries. As a PA he should be more concerned with helping Raul in his activities. Do the Filipinos make do with the mining slush chai? I know we Indians accept anything, and still show up for work! So when is the shit going to hit the fan? C'mon you Herald folk are you going to live with this?

Cheap stuff....your comments. So much for the poverty of the Goa media including penpricks. I am not able to understand the relevance of the content to anybody else other than you.

Futti chai in herald is not new. They are used to it. The Herald proprietor J D Fernandes used to have it and now chief reporter Vijay De Souza have been drinking chai without sugar.

Cost-cutting exercise!!! The GM should first cut his fat salary of around a lakh per month, which includes his laundry, his petrol bills, his mobile bills, his paan bills and so on and so forth. It maybe includes his condom bills as well. Both the GM and the PA knows how to get more money out of the MD for themselves by buttering him. If not, how come the MD is talking of the Herald's circulation going beyond the ombined circulation of the Navhind Times and the Times of India. Someone please tell the MD that both these nuts and the Circulation department are just fooling him by providing Herald copies free of cost in thousands.
