Goa's Mormugao port might shut down if losses mount: Gadkari 20.3.2018 General News
Union Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari today said that the continued losses at the Mormugao Port Trust (MPT) might result in its shutdown.

"The port (Mormugao Port Trust) has run into losses this year. During the current financial year there is a loss of Rs 25 crore.

If there are losses, it is difficult to give payment without any work," Gadkari said in an indirect reference to the protests against the alleged pollution caused

Go find solace in Kochi 14.3.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
I have fallen in love with the sea. I can sit in front of this emerald beauty for hours, admiring her. Thats what made me go to Kochi, the pearl of the Arabian Sea. The year end is the best time to visit this tropical beauty. For avid sea-lovers like me, Kochi has a lot to offer, like the pristine backwaters, beautiful beaches and picturesque islands formed by the boisterous Arabian Seas inlets. If one has to dabble in some history and architecture, it has the centuries-old Jewish Synagogue, Mattancheri Palace and Portuguese voyager Vasco da Gamas tomb. Since I couldnt resist the call of the enticing sea, we decided to go to the beach as soon as we landed. There are numerous home stays and budget hotels in Fort Cochin which has connectivity to all islands by boat. It was only ten minutes walk from our homestay to the beach. Spending time on the beach watching the waves dashing against the rocks and watching the small and large ships passing by, was an exquisite and calming experience. I was eagerly ...
