As in the past, Goenkarancho Ekvot celebrated World Goa Day on 23rd August 2009- Sunday at Fr.Agnels' School Auditorium, Goutam Nagar, New Delhi as 20th August 2009 was a working day.

The Tietre" Ek Dhago Sukhacho" (a string of happiness) by Shri Anil Pednekar
was performed

Ek Dhago Sukhacho is a touching family tale which brings a teardrop or two to
one's eyes as the story progresses to its climax. The comedy of this play is just superhit keeping the audience in splits right through the beginning till the end.
It was an ocassion to bring Goans together. The Tiatre was appreciated and
acclaimed by the distinguished audience of the Goans and the Konkani loving people of Delhi and nearby states like Haryana and U.P.
