MANGALORE: Roy Castelino, president, Konkani Prachar Sanchalan, has urged the Konkani speaking people to feel proud about their mother tongue and teach the language to their children. Participating in the Konkani Day function at Valencia Church here recently, he said the parishioners should encourage their children to opt Konkani as the third language in schools. Appreciating the parishioners for their involvement in promoting the language, he said Valencia Parish was a model for other parishes.
The Valencia Parish was organising the Konkani Day for the second consecutive year on a large scale, he said. Mr. Castelino honoured the students of the parish who had chosen Konkani as third language.
