    Congrats! Mr. Eric D’Sa and Team for organizing the B’day of Mother Mary in the Desert of Saudi Arabia. A very well organized function that brought to my mind the memory of Nativity celebration in our home town Very cherishing experience of having purely Vegetarian dinner on the banana leaf… a unique Nativity feature.

    "Tunge phool pormolik, Bhov sobith perzalik..Petoy MAYE uzo..JEZUCHA mogaso..Moriyek Hogolsiyan..hogolsiyan Moriyek". I myself offered flowers along with my daughter and whole family in Bendur Church grounds and was gifted by a sweet KOBU.

    I salute Mangalorean Community of Riyadh for their spirit gathering by a large number and offering flowers to Balok Mori in a restricted Country. Hats off to the entire team and behind the screen supporters. I too take a breathing space to thank for choosing one of my devotional konkani hymn from my released album 'Tujea Shetant'.

    I am sure BALOK MORI will shower on each individual HER high-priced blessings from the heaven above.
