It is high time Goans living in Goa realize that they are Prisoners Of War. It was in the news recently that one of the Goan Ministers who gets ‘chills’ being behind the ‘Church’ for being a Catholic, that Goa was “Conquered” by India; quoting the Supreme Court. So where are our “Freedom fighters” who take pride in boasting that they have “liberated” Goa hiding? Where is the freedom they harp on that they have given Goa and Goans? Why is the term “Liberation of Goa” being used? I tend to believe this Minister; as in every war, the conquerors always plundered the wealth of the conquered land, they raped their women, took with them some slaves, etc. The intelligentsia always fled and lived in exile. What is happening now in Goa is the same. The intelligentsia have left Goa; Goa is plundered left and right by the Indians, our conquerors. They have taken slaves who are ruling Goa and are forbidden to take any decision without running to the capital of India for receiving Orders from their Masters. Our agricultural land, forests, houses and women too are raped almost daily. A few of the Goans still in Goa who have not fled, are forming a “Resistance Group”; but with no arms and ammunition. Will they succeed? Dr. Ferdinando dos Reis Falcão.
