Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar left Goa for Delhi on 15th September 2018 for treatment at AIIMS hospital, amid continued worry over his health.


Ramkrishna ‘Sudin’ Dhavalikar

BJP leaders said Sudin Dhavalikar, the public works minister and alliance partner (MGP) was expected to be given interim charge of the ministries handled by Parrikar.

Dhavalikars call to ban bikinis and pubs made headlines not just in India but abroad as well He doesn’t however have any problems with casinos  though they are known to foster money laundering and prostitution

Dhavalikar, a five-term member from Madkai constituency, has been one of the longestserving PWD ministers in the state  Dhavalikars own cabinet colleague Govind Gaude says he is corrupt, inefficient, and must resign

Dhavalikars are Deshastha Brahmins Parrikar is a Saraswat There is pressure from Nagpur to elevate Dhavalikar If Dhavalikar becomes Goa s CM he will be the first Deshastha Brahman to do so

Here is an interesting flashback dated 25th September 2015 from India’s leading English news paper The Times of India titled  Goa PWD minister says his family is associated with Sanatan  Sanstha..

Jyoti Dhavalikar

Goa PWD minister and senior leader of Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) RamkrishnaSudinDhavalikar said that his family members are associated with Hindu right-wing organization Sanatan Sanstha – an organization under scanner for the murder of Leftist leader Govind Pansare since 2000 – and that there is nothing wrong in it as they are promoting Hindu dharma and culture

Sudin’s wife Jyoti along with his brother and MGP president Pandurang`DeepakDhavalikar’s wife Lata have been associated with Sanatan Sanstha since 2000 (ie since the Santhans founding ).MGP is a coalition partner in the BJP government in the state. Even during the previous Congress government, the party was a coalition partner in the state.

Speaking to TOI, Sudin said that “Sanatan’s name has always been dragged into a controversy because they are pro-Hindu and if they would have belonged to any other religion then their name would have not come into picture.”

The Sanstha, founded in 1999 by three doctors(psychiatrists)—Dr Jayant Athavale, his wife Dr Kunda, and Dr Ashutosh Prabhudesai—clearly doesn’t like the spotlight.


Of the Sanstha’s three founders, only one—Athavale—remains in the saddle. Athavale’s wife Kunda left the Ashram in 2003 while Prabhudesai split from the Sanstha in 2009 after a bitter fight with Athavale. In 2009, Prabhudesai filed an affidavit in a Panaji court in which he said his wife was indoctrinated by Athavale. Source Livemint

The Sanathan Sanstha website has this to say about Athavale

Athale ‘Param Pujya’ Dr. Athavale was born on 6th May 1942 at Nagothane in Raigad district of Maharashtra. He studied medicine and undertook further studies in psychiatry. He practised in Britain for 7 years and then in Mumbai as psychotherapist; so also conducted research in hypnosis. He trained more than 400 doctors in hypnotherapy.

That makes Athavale 76 years old Not the age to be running around playing James Bond Who is really running things in the ashram at Ponda is not clear


An ATS official, who did not want to be named, said outfits such as Hindu Janajagruti Samiti , Shri Sriram Sene, and Hindu Yuva Sena, were part of the larger Sanatan Sanstha family and the people arrested so far “only technically” belonged to different organizations.

In 2008 Two Sanatan Sanstha sadhaks, Ramesh Gadkari and Vikram Bhave, were arrested by the ATS for their alleged role in planting bombs at theatres in Thane and Vashi.

In 2009, two Sanatan Sanstha workers, Malgonda Patil and Yogesh Naik, had died when a bomb they were ferrying to Margao Goa, where the Sanatan Sanstha is headquartered, accidentally exploded Investigators believe that the Sanatan Sanstha men who were killed in the blasts were hoping to fan communal tensions by misleading the police through items they wanted to leave behind at the site: a shopping bag from a shop in ‘Khan Market’, Delhi, a bottle of traditional perfume popular among Muslims and an empty bag of branded Basmati rice on which all the words were in Urdu.

With powerful friends in high places the case against other Sanathan Sanstha members for conspiracy to commit acts of terror collapsed

The CBI on June 2016 arrested Dr Virendra Tawade, a member of the Sanatan Sanstha offshoot, Hindu Janjagruti Samiti (HJS), for his alleged role in the murder of noted Pune-based rationalist Dr Narendra Dabholkar in 2013.Tawade, works as a medical officer for the Sanstha, was an ENT specialist who has been working with the organisation for the last 15-20 years. Indian Express

The special investigating team (SIT) probing the Govind Pansare murder case recovered drugs at the Panvel-based Sanatan Sanstha’s ashram, where the accused, Dr Virendra Tawde, would visit often. SIT believes that these drugs could have been used to hypnotise people given their neurological effects. The investigating team also revealed that Vinay Pawar conducted Pansare’s recce on Tawde’s instructions. Pune Mirror

The Kohlapur police on  September 2016 took Dr Asha Thakkar from the Sanatan Sanstha ashram in Goa in custody in connection with the drugs  seized at the Panvel ashram . The police has also taken two sadhvis in custody from the Panvel ashram.According to the police, Dr Thakkar under the instruction of Virendra Tawade — in custody for his alleged role in the murder of rationalist Dr Narendra Dabholkar — used to give psychiatric medicines to particular devotees. The police wants to find out if they were hypnotising devotees by giving medicines through tirtha (holy water) to execute their plan through the devotees. The police also suspects that Dr Thakkar knows details about the murder of Govind Pansare.Asian Age

Shyam Manav, one-time student to founder of Sanatan Sanstha, currently linked to Govind Pansare’s murder, says mass hypnotism could be its members’ obsessive devotion and the founder’s ‘miracles’

             Deepak and Lata Dhavalikar

Sudin Dhavalikar sister in law Lata Dhavalikar has her own views

“Hindu men, while leaving from home, should sport a tilak, while women, kumkum. Always celebrate Gudi Padwa as the Hindu New Year and not January 1. Don’t send your children to convent school… say namaskar instead of ‘hello’ when answering a phone call,” she said. She also believes rapes are on the rise due to women adopting western culture Source

But that’s just for starters Lata  a member of the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti it seems is also a constitutional expert, and wants to establish a Hindu Rashtra in India

With so any possibly brainwashed Sanathan members in the Dhavalikar family  the Sanathan Sanstha could easily become the power behind the throne in Goa
