To all you skeptics, who thought nothing postiive could be done in terms of initiatives in Goa, take a look at a group that was made possible by the constant efforts of Goanetter Victor Rangel Ribeiro (and others, like Margaret Mascarenhas, the hosting of Fundacao Oriente, etc):
Victor has been encouraging writers on a persistent basis. Today he has a group going and active in Goa… with 36 participants. Giving back to Goa doesn’t have to be in money. I think the most promising initiatives are going to be made of people sharing skills, ideas, talent, networking.
