    Dear Crixus,

    Thanks for your valid point. However In a place like UAE, where life is moving in a running speed, at least the youth took some time to give some entertainment to our Mangalorean People. Who has the time to contact Joel who is in India. Is it Feasible? Nobody has that time nor money to spend on calls and learn.

    Jerald D'souza. May be KY did not play the Gumta in the appropriate way. but somewhere they tried to keep it alive in the Middle East. Keeping alive the culture is still better than leaving the culture dead. May be next time KY team can learn from you how to play Gumta. Neways they did their best. that's what counts.
