    Congratulations Stan, Andrew and Arun Raj. We are prod of your achievements...all the best to you. Kannada script literary awards are sponsored by noble people. We salute Mr. Sunil D'Silva, son of Jerry Kulshekar for sponsoring the award in his dad's name. The encouragement by Rohan Monteiro to Konkani activities is praise worthy. Also thanks to Chapra's fans for sponsoring poetry award.
