Coal Corridor in Goa

I remember the glorious monsoons in Goa and the River Sal overflowing with raw red spillage owing to the iron mining. I remember a time when my father met an old man who said, ‘Baab, mugelo natu poir gora ehla.’ My father said, ‘Tho boro asa mure (is he well)?’ The old man, with a certain amount of shy pride, nodded and said, ‘Thenn...
