    I congratulate and salute these young budding poets who came out victorious in All India Konkani Poetry competition for students. It is pleasant surprise to learn that as many as 256 students took part this year's competition. Kudos to Kavitaa Trust for inspiring these young talents to take-up writing poetry in Konkani. We can foresee good harvest in the field of Konkani poetry if this trend catches-up amongst students. All the best to all these young poets who took keen interest in poetry.
