Is there HOPE out of the MINING PIT?

Is there HOPE out of the MINING PIT?

22 Oct 2017

While the mining ban has hit everybody badly in the region, there are some who have opted to diversify and return to farming or other means of sustenance. Residents of Sonshi village and those from Sanvordem-Curchorem-Sanguem belt seem to have realised that the golden goose may have flown and their best way forward is to see the unfolding reality rather than look forward to the good old days.

The recommendations in the Levinson Martins report despite its submission to the then government in 2012 still await implementation in the real sense. VIBHA VERMA talks to the Parulekar and Rane to know more More

Economic slowdown and insights from behavioural economics

Economic slowdown and insights from behavioural economics

22 Oct 2017
