Re: Re: [goajaycees] IFFI 08: Documentary on M.F. Hussain withdrawn
- Dear Jaycee Yogesh Shet,
Please note that I have put forth my views in two of my mails sent to you, whereas You have said I should have routed through Goajaycees.com, you may very well forward both of my mails to goajaycees.com and seek cross opinion instead of stating that it is foolish to take the opinion of seniors.
As a senior jaycee, can I be bias when it come to senior or junior, performer or nonperformer jaycee.
If, in my opinion, some of the actions or words of the junior or senior, performer or nonperformer, are going to mar the image of jaycees at large, do you want me or any other jaycee to silently digest whatever you have stated in your mails.
Please note that the opinions/views are to be respected in the first place because there is always a chance for an open debate on such sensitive issues on an open platform/forum of jaycees.
I have stated whatever I have to say. Please do not take this personally.
Yours in Jaycees
Jaycee Agnelo Menezes

Dear Jc Agnelo Menezes
I feel It is sheer waste of time to give answer to your supplementary Questions(As I had already replied your email). If you feel that I had done mistake in informing and congratulating Jc Dr Pramod Sawant for MLA candidature at pale constituency, you should have reply to goa Jaycees group rather than sending me personal email and now getting it again at this forum.
Now you are mixing three different Issues I dont know what you are trying to express. Further you have asked me to consult Seniors Jaycees before explanation and writing any mails. Dear Agnelo, It is foolish to give someone explanation on congratulating and giving my best wishes to Dr Pramod Sawant.
Further, I had discussed this issue with Key jaycees of the zone and maintained silence because I dont wanted to demorlize you by disclosing their opinion about you in Jaycees.
I feel that as a senior Jaycee you should have not commented on performer president at General forum. Please get youself actively involved in jaycees and see the hardship a president has to undergo during tenure before passing the comments.

>Please let me know in detail what is that you dont agree from Jaycee Sandeep Heble's point of view in regard to M.F.Hussain documentary. I will wait for your reply and will offer my view.Â I think youÂ have repliedÂ in excitement or with little knowledge.Â I would recall an incident, during last years installation, We have invited Mr.Elvis D'Sa, Senior Manager Purchase, Zuari Industries Limited as Guest of Honour.Â During His address, he mentioned that many of the Leaders in the world are members of the Junior Chamber International. I remember the moment Mr.Elvis finished hie address You just took the mike and informed the audience that many past presidents of U.S.A were the members ofÂ JCI, please tell me, is it not an offence? toÂ a Guest to comment on his speech and that too soon after his address. what you wanted to convey the audience then?Â Â Did Mr.ElvisÂ hurt anyÂ section of the community or Jaycees at large?
>I would also cite another example to you, recently Jc.Yogesh shet congratulated and wished the candidate of Pale constituency.Â I have gone through the mail of Jc.Yogesh meticulously and offered my views, I was not happy with the reply, so I asked for more clarification referring to the words and the phrases, till date I have not received any reply from youÂ as President of Vasco Jaycees.Â I have asked Jc. Yogesh to consult the Seniors and the experieced jaycees before offering any explanations and writing such mails.Â He has failed to reply till date.
>Jaycee Liladhar, Please understand that in Goa We are living in harmony, tranquility, solitude and in a peaceful atmosphere forgetting our religion, language, caste, etc.Â I think this atmosphere is slowly dying down because many of us are following things blindly, I mean weÂ are notÂ rationale in our thoughts.Â It is our fundamental duty to participate in our neighbours joys or sorrows irrespective of religion, language, caste, etc.
>In many parts of India, poor people and illiterate people are instigated or misguided and influencedÂ to followÂ or do something that is antisocial and unacceptable in the society with the help of money, muscle power and terror tactics.Â
