Great Work

On the occasion of the 2nd Anniversary of TGG, I would like to thank TGG team for the amazing work you guys do. 

A special mention of how the report of Rachel’s ‘Books for All’ project in Goa generated an awareness about donating storybooks amongst children in Dubai schools. We now have the support of 5 school kids supporting the project. 

Thank you, TGG, for your support and keep up the great work. God bless.

Lots to Read

TGG is a welcome sight to catch up with news that matters, unlike other avenues that have lots to read of no substance. Congratulations to all who contribute and share this fantastic info. Dev Borem Korum to The Goan!

Timely, Factual, Captivating

The last two years have seen a wider, more extensive coverage of all things Goan, be it the people, culture, music, true life stories, history, reporting of Goan matters, its people spread across the global diaspora or just about the true essence of being Goan wherever you are in the world.  

And it’s all been brought to us in a timely, factual and captivating manner by none other than TGG. Personally, it’s been a pleasure being associated with the team and I wish you continued success and a larger audience capture.

Succinct Presentation 

Not making the news, but just reporting the news as it is. That is what 'The Goan' does without any discrimination and in a wonderful way. The layout, colour and the succinct presentation of the articles covering a multitude of topics have made this daily my favourite Indian based newspaper. 

We become what we read and I am truly grateful to TGG supplement as it has allowed me to shape my thoughts about our Goans worldwide. Congratulations to all the staff at 'The Goan' newspaper on its 9th anniversary and TGG supplement on its 2nd anniversary.
