Nauru


It is an island nation formerly known as Pleasant Land. It’s the world’s smallest island covering just 21sq kms (am sure some of our townships in Class ‘C’ cities must be bigger than this) and has the smallest number of independent population.  

It had huge phosphate deposits that got exhausted after continuous mining for about 80 years. The phosphates were exported in bulk. These exports reached their peak in 1980’s when for a short duration, this sovereign state boasted of having the highest per-capita income in the world.  

Right now, Nauru now depends on aid given by Australian authorities. Nauru in return is the illegal immigrant detention center for Australia. Read more on Wiki.

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
