Goa Statehood Day celebration

Goa Statehood Day was celebrated by the Dalgado Konknni Akademi (DKA) on 30th May 2018. Tomazinho Cardozo, the president of DKA, was stressing the importance of Konkani as it is the identity of a Goan. He elaborated by saying, “You will be able to identify a Goan if he talks Konkani. Similarly, you’ll be able to identify a non-Goan by the language he speaks. Instead of non-Goans learning Konkani and speaking to Goans in our language, we speak in Hindi to them.” He said that we should take the responsibility to preserve Goa for future generations. Later on, several people recited poems on the topic ‘Goa’s Statehood.’
