|arunshanbhag||09:59 pm - Konkani Bibliography|
|I post primarily at: http://ArunShanbhag.com You can consider signing up for Email updates.|
I thank all delegates who attended the recent Konkani Sammelan in Toronto, Canada, and made it a phenomenal success. On a personal note, your enthusiastic response to my talk Konkani Temples in Goa was heartening.
In responding to the innumerable requests for the bibliography, I have listed them below. Over the next week, I will also upload all photographs as well. So please check back. The talk itself followed the outline I followed in two articles I had previously written. Please check my posts on the Ramnathi Devasthan, and the Mangeshi Devasthan. You may recognize many of the pictures, and see some new ones too.
On pg 57 of the Sammelan Souvenir is my article "Travels in Kumta." You can read the original article posted on my blog, along with photographs in color. Don't miss the three follow-up articles on Kumta as well. And then, a photo-essay on the processing of Cashew Nuts in Kumta. (Click through for articles).

Thank you Arun and Manisha, we loved your lecture at teh Sammellan. It inspired me to check out 'Livejournal" and wow! what a find - i just signed up - have towait till my son(18) wakes up to get more comfortable with the process ... i know i can blunder along for a while.
Your photo journal is stunning, a visual treat and makes me homesick ... well Jan 07 is not too far off!
Hi Chitra, you comment is live and well here.
thank you for your kind words.
... and please write a short post here on this blog - or share your photographs.
my parents went to this... i think i'm gonna check out the youth conference next year. sounds like it was fun
hey what are their names? maybe I ran into them.
Enjoy the youth conference - its going to be in your neck of the woods!
If your patents have pics, you should post them here. :-)
Punda and Padmini Pais (of the Gurupur Pais)
I'm waiting to hear from them. I'm sure they had fun!
Does not ring a bell. Did meet a Gurupur Pai couple, but am not sure if its the right one.

Nice journal you have got here.
Just wanted to let you know about the GSB Konkani Dictionary Project, that is collecting words for our amchigele dictionary.
Was wondering if it could be added to your links.
All the very best to you again.
Re: Interesting Links
