Sandesh Prabhudesai releases new book, Ajeeb Goa’s Gajab Politics

Senior journalist, Sandesh Prabhudesai released his new book Ajeeb Goa’s Gajab Politics, which offers a perspective on Goan elections. The book was released on the 191st birth anniversary of social revolutionary Savitribai Phule.
The book was released at the hands of Chief Justice (Retd) Allahabad High Court and former MLA of Goa (1977), Justice Ferdino Rebello, in the presence of former director of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study (IIAS) Dr Peter Ronald De Souza; and advocate Cleofato Coutinho. Prabhudesai says that the book is not primarily for politicians or political activists but for voters to rethink before casting their vote. Expressing his views on the book, De Souza, who has written the foreword, said that the book has something for everybody. He further said that Sandesh has started a new tradition of “chronicling history of Goa, of contemporary politics,” he said hoping that the book will be the beginning of a new public debate. Justice Rebello spoke on some of the concepts of the book from his own personal experiences, both in the field of politics, and the judiciary, pointing out that democracy is facing a major crisis in Goa
