Maladies of diaspora Goans:
Goans, like anyone else in the world, don’t have the time to waste on the nonsense created by Ben Antao in his criticism of me and my humble efforts as a an author and Goans in the diaspora. They have better things to do with their time … like family, friends, new experiences, work, religion, and the myriad things that created the home truth that a mother’s job is never done … especially when some of us are dealing with serious illnesses, emergencies or other matters of grave concern.
Ben, the editors of the blog he used as a vehicle for his attack, for disturbing the peace of Goan households around the world but especially in Canada, and I, for having the readers (and friends) of my two books and nearly 58 years in journalism rush to my defence owe you all an apology.
You guys have better things to do. You should not have to deal with this kind of useless crap.
I hope to bring this nonsense to end shortly.
