A boost for Konkani literature

Goa Minister for Education Luizinho Faleiro inaugurated the Vishwa Konkani Sahitya Akademi on Saturday. He called upon Konkani language enthusiasts the world over to unite to develop their mother tongue.

Basti Vaman Shenoi, president of Konkani language and Cultural Foundation, said the foundation had taken the initiative to take Konkani language, art, culture and folklore to national and international arenas.

Setting up of the Akademi was the first step in that direction, he said.

Vishwa Konkani Sahitya is not for revival of Konkani but to destroy Konkani totally.

I have written to them several times that lots of Konkani people in maharashtra are converted to marathi but they have not even bothered to respond my mail.

Their main aim is to destroy konkani & not to revive it. Be carefull of such organisations.

Maharashtrians can speak marathi in Goa & it is not compulsory for them to learn konkani.
But for konkanis in Bombay marathis is compulsory...What Vishwa Konkani Sahitya has done regarding this.

If konkani are having problem no one is their to solve them but maharashtrains have so many leaders in Goa(so called konkani state) & maharashtra that no one will dare to create problem for them. I am fighting against NIIT for last 3 years & no konkani has come in support of me.
