THE ESSENCE OF GOA
The measure of success of a nation seems to be decided on the basis of its military and economic strength. But this strength is of no use unless complimented by peace and harmony. Human values and traditions survive or evolve within tranquil spaces, and violence of any nature impedes growth. For the soul to be nurtured, peace is most essential and so should be considered most sacred.
In a world fraught with disturbances and unrest, it is becoming increasingly difficult to identify places where life in general is harmonious. Our own country seems to be riddled with complex issues…

THE BIRTH OF GANESHA
During Ganesh Chaturthi, it is a homecoming for the people. They might not celebrate Diwali in their ancestral house but when it comes to Ganesh Chaturthi they head back home. It is a time when family members come back together as a joint family. They arrive much before Ganesh Chaturthi.
You require a preamble to narrate something new. We live in a country which is spiritual in a big way. We can rather say that we are conveniently spiritual in many ways. That is why there is a culture of remembering God in a collective way before starting any…READ more..
BATTLE FOR JUSTICE: GREEN ACTIVISTS UP IN ARMS AGAINST RELOCATION OF GOA’s JURISDICTION IN NGT
The Western Zone will now consist of the cases related to Gujarat and Maharashtra only. Goa has been singled out as the only state in the country whose residents will need to go to Delhi for environmental justice, while the citizens of other parts of the country are provided access to the closest place possible.
The sudden and unexpected move of the Central Government to shift the jurisdiction of Goa from the National Green Tribunal (NGT) Western Zone of Pune bench to the Principal Bench in Delhi is likely to give birth to new movement in the state, with green…READ more..
LET’S CLEAR THE SMOKE
The fight against drugs is indeed a complicated one, but not really difficult if we play our part to clear away the smoke from someone’s life.
As a country or as a state we face many issues. Some of the common issues are poverty, unemployment, illiteracy and terrorism. However, we may feel impervious to some of the above issues but the one which is actually affecting our society as a cancer is the issue of drugs.
In recent times, it almost every day that we read on the newspapers about people getting caught with drugs or narcotic substances or police…
WHEN LUXURY BECOMES NECESSITY
Can we survive a day without our cell phone? well, we do feel being shipwrecked on an isolated island without it. The technology has advanced so fast and rapidly that our mobile phone which was launched just to receive calls on the move, now has features which makes it as good as a computer. With the evolution of internet and different social networking apps such as WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, people don’t just communicate but also stay connected regardless of the distance.
We are leaving in an era where the internet is no longer a luxury but…

Q. How did your journey begin?

But after that, there was a huge gap and our students were drawn away from Ghumat aarti. During this time, one of our friends and well-wisher Krishna Naik alias Dai took…
MODERN AGRICULTURE AND CHEMICALS WE EAT
The adoption of agriculture by early humans is seen as a major turning point in the establishment of civil society. For the hunter gatherers of the early days, farming was an easier way to produce and store food over longer times.
After the advent of the industrial age, modern agricultural science felt that nature was quite unorganized and wasteful and agriculture needed human intervention to evolve into a high efficiency system in line with the efficiency focus of the industrial age. So with a single focus on productivity, the scientists went about perfecting the system. Early…
A RAINY DAY IN UJJAIN
VINAYA WALAVALKAR – MANTRI
While gazing at the rain, I feel like sharing a memorable experience of my life. Two years back, on July 19, we had a show of our drama ‘Pai Paishachi Gosht’ at Ujjain. After arranging all the things, our team was ready to leave for Ujjain. I decided to travel with Ila Tayi (Ila Bhate) in Avantika Express train while the rest of the team travelled to Ujjain by road as they wanted to enjoy the rains. Everything was happening as per the schedule.
Our train was supposed to reach Ujjain the next day at 7…
RUMOR HAS IT…
When people sit, and discuss others, whose lives have nothing to do with them, all they are doing is igniting a negativity that need not be there. This ignition leads the fire to spread, sometimes so rapidly and recklessly, that before you know it, an entire new story is formed.
Life takes its turns and we move forward to various new beginnings. As we move, we leave behind those parts of us that are no longer productive. We walk towards change and yes, change is the only constant. There is not a being on the face of this…READ more..
