*Thanks Allwyn! *

We must keep promoting traditional, village economies if we are not to be
obliterated by global economic juggernauts that trundle on regardless of
human and eco life-systems which struggle for survival at the grassroots.

Warm regards and solidarity!

Muriel & Mario.

 In May, many Saligaokars buy
 salt for the whole year​.

 The Bhobe salt pans in Nerul may be a good place to get it
 cheaper than in Mapusa and the pickups that do the rounds,
 selling salt pan salt.

 An earning opportunity could
 be some young people buying salt directly from the salt pans
 in Nerul and then selling it in Saligao.

 ​Read on...​
 Salt pans in the Nerul area of Bardez, Goa
 are dying.The reasons?  Bunds are
 being breached or
 because they are no longer seen as
 profitable.
 The Bhobes, a long standing family of Nerul,
 are the only committed folks left in the area, who
 take the trouble
 to maintain their salt pans.  At Rs. 50/- a tin
 of old salt and Rs 80/- for new, one wonders if the
 family breaks even, at all.
 But for the Bhobes, it is not
 about
 money.  It is a labour of love!
 This patriotic family is tied
 to the land in a very real way: the "salt of the
 earth"
 helps them own and promote a traditional occupation.
 Although
 all of them are professionals, earning a living outside
 Nerul, the
 family 'agor' (salt pan) keeps them anchored to the
 village economy
 which struggles for survival in a globalised market.
 Goa needs to be extremely
 grateful to families like the Bhobes of Nerul, that strive to preserve
their
 Goenkarponn in such tangible ways.

 Salt
 making is a traditional, grassroots, village economy that
 has to be
 preserved and promoted, at all costs.  It is eco-friendly,
 employment-generating and sustainable with no carbon
 footprint at all.
 This genuine product of grassroots-Goa, is totally
 natural
 with no chemicals added.  It has medicinal properties and
 is
 blessed with the presence of over a dozen natural
 minerals.
 Even though it requires a lot
 of human labour, it is surprisingly
 cheaper than the expensively packed 'iodised salt'
 that has flooded
 the market in recent years.
 To
 promote and save this important traditional occupation,
 environmentalists, NGOs, Goa-lovers, those who want to save
 Goa and the planet, as well as the common person in the
 vaddo, are strongly encouraged to buy locally produced,
 salt-pan salt.
