Good Move. All seems to be moving in the right direction right now. First of all, the Maharastrian Ranes's ( by this i mean the two ) should be taken off from just about everything. May be the Rani of Sawantwadi can give them some assignment now. What happened to poor Babu? Luizinhno has left him in the lurch?Just wanted to check- probably, he had made provisions for a Gandhi Market in Pernem or planning to join the BJP now?

May i also ask when the President of the Tiatr Academy of Goa will be change? That is the need of the hour too!!!!
