Ninety million dollars is not a big deal for chief
minister Laxmikant Parsekar. Earlier this week, he
described that huge sum (roughly 400 crore) as "not
a big amount" to be paid in capital and operational
grants to the contractor for the controversial new
solid waste treatment plant in Saligao over 10
years. This on top of more than 7 crore already
spent for land acquisition, and road and wall
construction for a facility that is running to just
30% of its capacity.

Remember Britain leaving the European Union ( Brexit),

sometime back the word Brexit was the most overused

New Delhi, Aug 21:
Rural distress as a result of two back-to-back
drought years has begun to show signs of easing
following good monsoon rains and is reflected in the
substantial decline in the number of labourers
employed under the MNREGA in last two months, a top
government official today said. “Monsoon rainfall
has been better so far and therefore area under
cultivation is also higher than in past two years,
when severe rainfall deficiency hit farmers. As a
result the number of workers engaged under various

The Cristo Rei Parish community will be celebrating the life and work of Mother Teresa, whose life of extraordinary holiness and humility is
admired globally. She also was the recipient of the 1979 Nobel Peace
Prize - and asked that the $192,000 funds be given to the poor in
India. When Mother Teresa passed away in 1997, she left behind over
4,000 Missionary of Charity Sisters, in 610 centers in 123 countries.
Mother Teresa lived and worked with the poorest of the poor and it is
easy to see there’s good alignment between her life’s work and the
determined efforts of the Government of India to help its needy and
disenfranchised citizens to live and work in dignity.
