Konkani literary and cultural convention held

Dalgado Konkani Akademy organized the Second Konkani (Roman Script) literary and cultural convention at Ravindra Bhavan, Kudchodem, in Margao on February 20 and 21.

A colourful venue was set up for the programme which was named after the well-known Konkani film personality late Frank Fernand and the main stage was named after late Albert S Carvalho. The programme started with the procession accompanied by traditional music.

Former Goa assembly speaker and the first president of newly formed Tiatr Akademy of Goa Tomazinho Cardozo spoke about the problems associated with language and scripts in Goa. He said that it is important to preserve Konkani written in all sects and all scripts so that it can flourish in all angles and directions.” Only Konkani language in all script and not in a particular script can save Goan culture and Goan identity.” He affirmed. He also stressed the need of uniting the broken society by uniting all scripts of Konkani and giving equal importance to all.
