KGTS supports Konkani Writers & Publishers
'KONKNNI OPARINCHO JHELO'
Kuwait-Goa Tiatristanchi Sonvstha (KGTS) celebrated their 5th anniversary in grand style with the release of Brazinho Soares (Kalapurkar)'s KONKNNI OPARINCHO JHELO - a collection of Konkani sayings which the author has collected for over 46 years.
Brazinho Soares was specially flown in from Goa for the occasion. This is the first time an inaugural release of a KONKANI publication takes place in Kuwait. The occasion was beautifully orchestrated by KGTS committee members and the ribbon-cutting ceremony was done at the hands of Rev. Fr. Melywn D'Cunha, vicar of the Holy Cathedral Church, Kuwait City on 17/4/2007.
