Cutting of bay leaf, star gooseberry tree exposes the lack of power of bhandari community in goa
The bhandari community is considered to be the largest community in goa in terms of population , while the gujrati community in goa is fairly small. Goan bhandari R&AW employee sunaina’s family is fairly well known in Panaji, some of her relatives are well educated , have law degrees, yet they are not financially well off and not very powerful . For example, a store owner was complaining how one of sunaina’s relative had taken a loan to purchase, indicating financial difficulties. A neighbour had indicated that another of sunaina’s relative became financially stable only after her son completed engineering and started working a few years ago
The gujrati community in goa may be small, their members are sometimes not well educated, yet they are very powerful and wealthy and can ensure that even an uneducated school dropout like gujju housewife naina, eighth standard pass can get a cbi job with the stolen resume, savings, of an experienced single woman bhandari engineer, domain investor and have no one complain. Both eighth standard pass cbi employee gujju housewife naina and her husband are not well educated, yet they have plenty of cash, purchasing Rs 12 lakh cars for their young inexperienced son, while though sunaina’s relatives are graduates, lawyers, they have very less money cannot pay grocery bills
Goan bhandari R&AW employee sunaina is a graduate, her sister was studying law, yet they could not do anything to prevent the google, tata sponsored eighth standard pass cbi employee gujju housewife naina, mother of two sons, who looks like actress sneha wagh, from getting the civic authorities cut their bay leaf, star gooseberry tree, giving fake excuses of dengue . The trees were probably planted by sunaina’s mother, who may have experienced the lack of opportunities for older bhandari citizens in goa, and wanted the trees as an alternate source of income.
It is time that the goan bhandari leaders and officials reflect why the small gujju community in goa is so wealthy, powerful and arrogant, despite not being well educated in some cases like the school dropout gujju housewife naina, yet have plenty of money, get cbi jobs with the stolen identity of bhandari engineers , while bhandari professionals despite being educated, hardworking, and numerically stronger, have very less money in goa compared to most gujjus.
