I am inspired that Goans irrespective of Caste, Creed or Religion are slowly but surely coming together to save our beautiful land & its unique identity. In my opinion, the following obstacles need to be addressed urgently, by Resident & Non-Resident Goans:
(1) Awareness of how critical issues threatening Goa’s environment, ecology, land & its Prized Identity today, will seriously affect all Goans in the long run.(2) Increase Confidence amongst Goans that there is still Hope for Goa: Together, WE can make the change and make Goa a practical working example of conversion to a world class state with a unique identity; not only to other Indian States but also to other countries of the world.
(3) Many Goans appear blackmailed by the own illegalities & linked (many times helplessly) to the current corrupt system: PAST is PAST; let us not be handcuffed by what happened before... let’s change if possible, else let us just move forward!!
(4) False Prophets/NGO’s: Goa & Its Identity should be only overall vision that we should ultimately trust & follow. Let’s not be demoralised by selfish interests!!
(5) Corrupt Government & Wealthy Lobbies, wearing down activists by Police Cases, Intimidation, Delaying Tactics, Manipulation of reports etc. Together we can stop this domestic terrorism!!
