Panaji: Late Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s sons Utpal Parrikar and Abhijat Parrikar have said that they would “honour his (Parrikar’s) life by continuing his legacy of service and dedication to the State and the Nation”.

The public statement comes amid speculation that the late Chief Minister’s elder son Utpal Parrikar is likely to join active politics.

In a joint letter, which was released to the media via the Chief Minister’s Office, both the brothers have also said that BJP karyakartas (cadres) were much closer to Parrikar than the two brothers and the bond, the letter says, became evident when the former Defence Minister passed away on March 17 following a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer.

“We will honour his life by continuing his legacy of service and dedication to the State and the Nation,” the Parrikar brothers said in their open letter of appreciation, which expresses gratitude to the Goa government, the Central government, foreign diplomatic missions, the Indian armed forces, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, doctors who attended to the late Chief Minister, as well as the host of VIPs who attended Parrikar’s funeral on March 18.


Both sons of Late Goa Chief Minister promises to carry father’s political legacy:


“We express our gratitude to the Governemnt of Goa, Government of India, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, BJP, coalition allies and members of other political parties,” the letter stated.

“Above all we express our sincere gratitude to the thousands of karyakartas for their love and affection. You have been his pillars of strength throughout. We always knew that you and the people of Goa meant much more to him than even us and this bond was evident when he passed away,” the letter said.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, Utpal Parrikar, who has been tipped to take over Manohar Parrikar’s political legacy, said that he would decide about joining politics in due time.



Remove fear from these two yogas and complete every task with confidence




During the run-up time, there is the stress of completing the target in the office or the fear of being in competition

All these tension and fear somewhere reduces the confidence in you. Because of this, there comes a time when you feel that you will not be able to face the difficulties in life.

At such a time, there are two special yogasanas that can help you.

These asanas, which remove the fear by increasing self-confidence, are named Virabhadrasana and Vriksasana. Performing Virabhadrasana keeps the mind calm and infuses courage.

It promotes digestion as well as removes fear and anxiety from the mind, while Vriksasana is done to increase concentration and focus.

How to do Virabhadrasana

To perform Virabhadrasana, first of all stand upright. After this, while moving your right leg forward, bend your right knee slightly.

While doing this, an angle of about 90 degrees should be made between the knee and the ground. Keep in mind that while doing this your left leg should be straight.

With this, the soles of the feet should be attached to the ground. After that, take a deep breath and raise both your hands upwards.

While doing this, keep your shoulders in a comfortable position. Do not let both ears come near your shoulder.

How to do Vriksasana Yoga

To do this asana, first of all stand upright. Raise your hands up, keeping both of your feet at some distance from each other.

While doing this, straighten your hands and mix the palms together. While bending the knee of the right foot, keep its sole on the left thigh.

During this condition, the heel of the right foot will rest under the anal gate, ie the genitals.

Keep the palms, head and shoulders in the same line while balancing on the left leg.

Take a deep breath here and it is better to focus on a point or thing. Also hold the earth with its claws. Doing so will not upset the balance.
