For the last six months there has been a battle royale going on between mining dependents who feel deprived and cheated by the Government, and the Government itself which has consistently making promises to attempt to restart mining, to no avail. Away from this battle, there are much larger questions, should Goa’s future be dependent on mining alone to why have we allowed our natural bounty of rivers, farms, forests to wither away and become valueless! It is time to tap into the vast treasure trove of resources that nature has given us and use it for sustainable livelihoods.
People come together creatively with Cartoons, Books, Photography and Solutions to tackle the resource- curse of our land. Goenchi Mati proposes a complete govt. re-evaluation of our inherited minerals. Our re-connection to this Tambdi Mati gives us a chance at saving some of it for our children and their generations to come.
