Review: A Matter of Time by Brenda Coutinho

Today in 2016, some of the most powerful young women in goa working in R&AW/CBI like goan gsb frauds housewife riddhi nayak, diploma holder siddhi mandrekar who commited corporate espionage, goan obc bhandari sex bribe giver bsc slim sunaina chodnekar, housewives veena, nayanshree hathwar, naina are known online frauds faking their btech 1993 EE degree, resume, investment, paypal account to become rich and famous overnight, seducing powerful men to give fake references, stalking, committing corporate espionage and other crimes.
This is in contrast to goa under the portuguese where it was one of the most crime free places in india due to the harsh punishment of the portuguese rulers imposed on those breaking the law. In the first few decades after liberation of goa, goa largely retained the values, with honesty being a valued quality. The book “A matter of time’ by Brenda Coutinho gives a glimpse of the life of a young girl Paula growing up in Goa in the 1970’s and 1980’s . The young girl was living in a village benefica near the city of margao in salcette with her siblings and her friends including mandovi.
The book is being written in flashback mode, now paula is middle aged, and there are hotels in her village in the place where she played as a child with her friends. Like many goans, her brother is working abroad and her friend mandovi has married a rich jeweller in Margao. Many of the larger and older goan mansions are being pulled down to build apartment complexes and hotels. Only a few old trees are left standing to lend a touch of old goa to the tourists who visit the place and live in the hotel.
In the book, she mentions how buses were slowly introduced to make travel to city of margao quicker and more convenient, the different village customs, visiting margao to receive the std phone call from a relative abroad. She also writes about the spinster living alone in her house in the village who ensured that the house she lived in was converted into an old age home after her death.
Those who grew up in goa in the 1970’s and 1980’s where honesty was valued, find it difficult to adapt to the new India and goa where being a lazy greedy mediocre treacherous cheater, liar is a very great virtue for companies like tata, google, ntro, raw, cbi, security agency officials with known section 420 frauds like the inexperienced mediocre lazy greedy goan gsb fraud diploma holder siddhi mandrekar being rewarded with top RAW/CBI jobs faking their resume.

The shameless fraud R&AW, cbi, ntro officials will continue to falsely claim that this review has been written by the section 420 fraud R&AW employee shivalli brahmin bengaluru housewife bbm nayanshree hathwar, to justify the wastage of tax payer money on the well connected brahmin fraud who is actually doing no work online.In reality the brahmin fraud housewife nayanshree hathwar has looted the real domain investor, blog owner a harmless single woman engineer of more than Rs 1.1 lakh, yet because of the rampant casteism in India RAW is wasting tax payer money to pay the brahmin fraud nayanshree hathwar a salary for the rest of her life, making fake claims, cheating the obc engineer.
Other frauds who make fake claims of owning the website are the fraud RAW/CBI employees lazy greedy goan gsb frauds housewife extortionist riddhi nayak, diploma holder siddhi mandrekar who commited corporate espionage, goan obc bhandari sex bribe giver bsc slim sunaina chodnekar, indore housewife bespectacled veena, stock broker asmita patel, ruchika, naina, nayanshree when these frauds do not want to spend any money on the expenses..
