Eight-column battles… on language


Don’t trust religion-based and language-based battles in Goa. These are clearly made to get you fighting, without resolving anything of significance. Now with the tug-of-war over implementing English-as-a-subject in Standard I, various sections of the media are up to their tricks again.

Sections of the Marathi media are up with the ‘Marathi in danger’ battlecry. Some newspapers have been carrying eight-column banner headlines about fairly boring items, that keep the issue on the boil nonetheless.

It helps strengthen one’s believe that politicians and the press are the two main forces that provoke communal sentiments in Goa.
