What is this with Goa that so many are committing
suicides. Can understand Andhra Pradesh farmers taking
their lives because of poor crop and poor financial
conditions.
I think it's time sociologists in Goa look at this
phenomenon and analysis the data. The trend seems to
be disturbing. Are domestic problems on the rise and,
if so, are they because of poor economic conditions,
no means of escaping family boredom?
Wasn't it a couple of years ago that two sisters
committed suicides?

all ministers from February 10, 2003 till date is Rs.1,94,32,456 towards
their salaries, telephone bills, mobiles, petrol, staff, repairs of cars,
residences, etc. The information was provided by the Chief Minister, Mr
Manohar Parrikar, in a written reply to the Aldona MLA, Mr Dayanand
Narvekar. (NT)

FINED FOR STORING ASENIC WASTE: The Sub-Committee of the Supreme Court
Monitoring Committee has slapped a Rs.10 lakh fine on a company in South
Goa for storing arsenic waste in violation of environmental laws, giving
the company a deadline of September 3, 2004, to encapsulate these wastes.

CROCODILE CAUGHT: Some boys from Malim-Britona had cast their net in the
river Mandovi last Saturday evening to catch fish and when they began
pulling the net and found that it was heavy, thought they had caught some

EDUCATED IN SHOPS AND GODOWNS: The Red Rosary High School at Lake View
Colony Miramar functions from half a dozen flats, shops or godowns, with
classrooms scattered all over. It doesn?t have a playground. No problem.
It uses a busy road for the purpose. And this is one of the premier ones
in the city (Panaji) and despite its drawbacks, imparts decent education.
However, the right files have not moved at the right time to ensure proper
classrooms, buildings and space for the children. (Jyoti Dhond in GT)

GOING BACK TO THE BASICS: It is a shame that Goa with all its vast natural
resources and agricultural background cannot think of a well developed
vocational educational plan. With the unemployment levels reaching record
highs and Goa?s main revenue earner tourism struggling, it is high time
the state government removes the various flaws that are hampering Goa?s
vocational educational system. (Edit in Herald)

What is this with Goa that so many are committing
suicides. Can understand Andhra Pradesh farmers taking
their lives because of poor crop and poor financial
conditions.
I think it's time sociologists in Goa look at this
phenomenon and analysis the data. The trend seems to
be disturbing. Are domestic problems on the rise and,
if so, are they because of poor economic conditions,
no means of escaping family boredom?
Wasn't it a couple of years ago that two sisters
committed suicides?
