Hi guys... The story's almost ready guys... Let's say, we've struck a purple patch... Call these posts, a build up if you like. There will be one more teaser, before we come out with the story about this editor, who's become a symbol for the nouveau breed of journalists-turned-businessmen. Editors like these are a symptom of a wheezing, retching, stifled profession called journalism, which is in desperate need for a nice long honest breath of fresh air.
Here's our prayer... Don't fall for these kind of guys, who lead people into believing that their love for feni, is actually their love for Goa.
That's a very shallow peg these guys are trying to peddle.

Dear penpricks

I absolutely abhor this habit of yours of casting slurs upon those who are nouveau, those who wheeze, retch and are stifled, and those who love their feni. Damn it! I love my feni and I wheeze and retch and I hate my Goa too, so why the booboos should I cast slurs upon those who love their feni and their Goa too. If you have the tuntuns please identify yourself and don't defame honest lovers of feni and Goa.

And please stop this anon-benon shit. Why caaaan't you write straight man?

Come on yaar P'E'ndu at least spell your name correctly. God Dammit bloody hell write P'A'ndu man and not P'E'ndu. Else commentators on this post may call you a Bengali. BTW Bengalis are always habituated to replacing A with O.
For example our very own neo-Goemkar Sujoy Gupta instead of Sujay Gupta.

From where did you get that bit about Bengalis spelling Pandu as Pendu?

Bengali(besides some other languages of eastern India) does not 'a' or 's'. That is why a becomes 'aa' or 'o' and 's' becomes 'sh'. But there is no way it becomes 'e'. Just goes to prove how inward-looking and ignorant some chaps can be of the eastern and perhaps, northeastern regions of the country.

Hey pricks,
Do check this other story dated 24 September also written by the former HERALD "Chief REPORTER" now turned GT 'correspondent' Julio D'Silva on GT's page 3.
Ironically the journo-turned-politico who contested against the Urban Development Minister Joaquim Alemao and lost twice, has quoted the minister saying "you should elect people who will work."
Now thats a telling sign for a defeated candidate.
But isn't it odd that Julio has written in the younger Alemao's favour after he has soundly attacked the elder bro, CHURCHILL (allegedly at the behest of bete-noir Luizinho).
Now this is something PENPRICKS, if the author of this blog is in its right element should investigate and expose. Instead of petty personal attacks on non-entities.
Keeping to its motto "Discover the rotund flanks and the shaggy underbelly of the Goan media. And of course, the rare honest rib" that the PRICKS have long forgotten after their arch nemesis ROBIN Abreu (ex-HERALD editor) quit the paper.
Sad to say the pricks have disappointed its fans who have increased in numbers and waiting with baited breath for the eagerly awaited next post promising to expose????
Are you still alive or on the way to the ICU????

Herald to be taken over by HT with NT entering into a tie-up with DNA.
GT's makeover to Sakaal Times has been delayed due to tech glitches.
But will happen next year.

yeah missing Ruchika babe already...she was much better than those old crummy videos they keep on airing at HCN. Even if the fortune was all out of tune, atleast she made an attempt to sound credible and even dolled up for the dodos like me. If nothing else she justified the electricity bill for keeping the TV on. And don't u pricks tell me to go switch to another channel as I LOVE HCN.Harr,harr,harr!

Also a li'l birdie told me that Manjunath & Co. have been spreading rumors in the office that they spent millions of rupees to obtain pan Goa connectivity. I'm flummoxed, Pray Why? All they needed to do was to buy some pigeons and tie the news of the day to their feet and dispatch them to all corners of Goa. After all that's about as much REAL programming that HCN is churning out apart from showing some hazy pilfered documentaries.

Pilfered documentaries? Wonder what's happening to HCN under the watchful gaze of the ex-Goa 365 Nisser Dias? Hope he is not on a break or looking out to spice some the sizzle he lost in his earlier posting?
Could be the guy is waiting for a chance to make it in the NDTV post-Sujay era?
Even the Nation headlines on teh HCN news have ghastly images without the recommenadatory courtesy line. Time for the local channel to be sued crores of rupees as RAUL can aford to shell out the cash for this white elephant that continues to milk the Herald DRYYYYY!!!

The guy is not Alvaro Colaco. Perhaps you have not seen Alvaro. Be you at the photo carefully, he looks like Mayabhushan's father. If not ask Mayabhushan to clear the doubts.

The "mighty one true God" has unseated rulers from their seats of power. He is the God of 'righteousness' and 'truth', do not underestimate his power, when His hand acts nobody can reverse it. Remember never to misuse the name of the Lord your God for you shall be destroyed. Try it, you will only be finding yourself fighting against the 'Most High.'

Interesting to note Herald's former employee, photo journalist Menino Afonso chose the very same day to allegedly committ suicide.
Probably the Herald failed to take care of him in his worse days.
Perhaps Melyvn Misquita (Chief Of News Bureau) would care to comment???
Or Maybe the other Raul suckers, Sergio, Joel, Vijay, Bir, etc. (new man in- Lionel) now that Choppy is no longer there in person.
Wonder how he is doing in far away Canacona.
Do Keep us posted, Pricks or have you gone along with Choppy as your last post was a month back!?????
