The program began at 9pm with Master of ceremony Rony Pinto’s welcome with Konkani poetic words and brief introduction about the Monti Fest to the gathering.

Then novem, blessed grain mixed in milk which was sponsored by Ronald Fernandes and the homemade cake by Naveen Mendonca was distributed to the gathering.


BV children Riva Pinto and Nathan D’silva melodiously sang Konkani songs. The hilarious Konkani skit “Pakku Phoslo” performed by Arun Fernandes, Feena and Vineeth Castelino, Preetham Aranha, Gilbert Sequeira and Joel D’sa made the audience happy.
