You marvel at a system which produces a man who was facing terminal illness, was told by doctors that it is just a matter of months & yet that man continued to serve the public till the last moment possible. No personal desires, just a passion to serve.#manoharparrikar

A man of scooty was once hit by a young guy in a grand car. The guy came out and said. "I am the son of police Commisioner of Goa."
The scooty man replied with a smile," I am the chief minister of Goa."
This was a #ManoharParrikar

Why noble soul leaves this planet so early ? An IITian always walking with chappal and trademark half-sleeved shirt was epitome of commitment, dedication, simplicity and highest integrity. Irreparable loss to the public life of country. Respect #ManoharParrikar Ji. Om Shanti…!!
