Uzwaad Christmas issue released

BELGAUM: It’s a delightful moment to release the special Christmas issue on the occasion of Christmas, which is a festival of birth of Jesus Christ as well as light, said Rev Dr Peter Machado, Bishop of Belgaum.

Speaking after releasing the special edition of ‘Uzwaad’, a Konkani magazine in Belgaum on Monday, he expressed happiness over the efforts of ‘Uzwaad’ in uniting thousands of Konkani speaking people in north Karnataka, south Maharashtra, Konkan and Goa.

Journalist Louis Rodrigues briefed about the reach and efforts of the magazine toward the cause of Konkani and culture.

He said Uzwaad, which was established in 1998, reached Konkani speaking people across 150 places in the above said regions.

It was the only longest survived Konkani magazine in the region, he added.

Monsignor Lucio Mascarenhas, Vicar General of Belgaum diocese, J J Bardeskar, Alphie Monteiro, Girgol Rodrigues and others were present.
