All India Marathi Sammelan in mid-January 2010 at Panjim
All India Marathi Sammelan in mid-January 2010 at Panjim:
Under the aegis of the Konkan Marathi Parishad, the state is gearing up to host a three-day all-India Marathi Sammelan from 15 to 17 January, 2010 at the Dayanand Bandodkar grounds, Panjim.
Incidentally, the Sammelan is being held against the backdrop of the birth centenary of Goa's first revolutionary chief minister Dayanand (Bhausaheb) Bandodkar and Goan Marathi poet par excellence B.B. Borkar.
With an aim to take this task to its logical conclusion, a meet was organised in Panjim to undertake spade work and discuss the nitty-gritty of a Sammelan of this magnitude.
Konkan Marathi expo to display 50,000 books
PANAJI: Over 50,000 Marathi books on various subjects are on display at the three-day exhibition at the Kala Academy campus under the auspices of the Konkan Marathi Parishad, an organisation devoted to the cause of Marathi literature. In all, 45 stalls have been set up.
The exhibition was inaugurated by Public Works Department Minister Sudin Dhavalikar on Friday, hours before the three-day conference on Marathi literature organised by the KMP began.
Books on science, sports, religion, culture, essays, short stories, poems, history, geography, films, dramas, horoscopes and many other subjects are available.
The president of Konkan Marathi Parishad and former Information Officer of Goa Madhu Manguesh Karnik arrived in Goa on Thursday.
He was present for the inauguration of the exhibition along with former Chief Minister Shashikala Kakodkar. Veteran author Dr Subhash Bhende said that Goans by and large buy and read books. At Karad in Maharashtra where the recent All India Marathi literature meet was held in January, he said, books worth Rs 3 crore were sold.
