4: Good article. It is surprising to know that many north eastern states are far better than others in terms of education. Sad and shame on us for the way they were treated by fellow Indians a while ago.

A former Portuguese colony and Indian union territory, Goa became a state in 1987. The capital is Panaji (Panjim).
