Pune, 12 Aug 2017: The Mangalorean Catholic Association, Pune (MCA) screened the long-awaited and popular Konkani movie, Noshibacho Khell, directed by the well-known Bhojpuri director Harry Fernandes, scripted and produced by Henry D’Silva Suratkal, at Papal Seminary Auditorium, Nagar Road, here, on Sunday, August 6. This was a part of its cultural initiative to showcase the richness and heritage of the Konkani language.

 

Various Konkani groups from in and around Pune City were involved in mobilizing the Konkani speaking community to attend the screening. The show was houseful and the auditorium was filled to capacity though it was a lazy Sunday afternoon. It was a great opportunity for all the Mangaloreans as well as other Konkani speaking communities from Goa, Karwar, etc. from Pune city to come together for an evening of fun and togetherness. There was a cheerful and jolly mood in the air with young and old alike interacting with one another and meeting long time friends and acquaintances.

 

There was a small felicitation program organized by MCA whereby Fr Abraham D’Souza, the new spiritual director of MCA, Henry D’Silva, producer of the film, Peter D’Souza of Konkani Kristi Sabha and John Fernandes of Divine Mercy Konkani Association were felicitated by Patrick D’Souza, president; Edna Rodricks, secretary, and Wilfred Saldanha, vice president of MCA.
