Panaji: The water shortage in Panaji has become a
blessing in disguise for at least two shopkeepers in the Panaji municipal
market dealing in paper plates and banana and other leaf plates and cups.
The paper plates are in great demand due to the water
shortage since the last five days.
Admitting that there is an increase in the sale of leaf
and paper plates in the city during the last 4-5 days, the shopkeepers
attributed the rise in the sale of such plates to the water crisis and the
Shravan month, which is underway, when people usually prefer leaf plates. The
shop keepers, however, said that there was neither a hike in the prices of such
plates nor a drastic rise in the sale of these goods.
