It was truly a day of accomplishments and celebration. The auditorium was filled with GSB member families and invited guest Artist Shri Ravindra Prabhu and invited cine/drama artists Shri. Shashibhooshan Kini and Shri H Satish Nayak. The program started invoking the blessings of the Almighty God which was compered by Ms. Shamita Bhat and Ms. Disha Shenoy.

In his welcome address, the President thanked and briefed the two years journey during his tenure as president for the year 2016 and 2017.

The Chief Guest Shri. Sujeer Srinivas Rao was given a warm welcome. In his address, He reminded the GSB members to impart good culture, values and tradition to be followed in the Konkani kids at this young age. He also said that being parents we should fulfill our duty of leading them from Darkness to Light and Ignorance to Knowledge. Soon after the Chief Guest speech, the Konkani film ‘UJJVADU’ and the Konkani book ‘THEES KAANIO’ which was scripted by Shri Sujeer Srinivas Rao, was released by GSB advisory Committee members Shri.

Later part of the Program was ‘Family Antakshari’ which was duly conducted by Dr.Aparna Bhat and Shri Srinath Bhat. The attraction of the function was ‘SANGEETA LAHARI’ with a mix of Konkani, kannada and hindi songs which was beautifully sung by ‘Karaavali Gandarva Shri Ravindra Prabhu Mulky’ and followed by a Konkani drama ‘AYILORE AYILO’ which was translated into Konkani and directed by chief guest Shri. Kasargod Chinna. The Konkani drama was much appreciated by all the audience which points out the corruption in the society and the way it’s been handled by the each individual. With its first stage play in Kuwait, the Konkani drama was very well played by local GSB members and invited artists.

The Program was well scripted and compered by Ms. Sanjana Shenoy.

The program came to a close with the sumptuous dinner served by UDHAYAM Restaurant and Vote of Thanks by Ms. Shamita Bhat.
