The programme will be held at the Lecture Hall of Krishnadas Shama Goa State Central Library, Panaji, at 4.00 pm. This is the fifth edition of Otlolim Bhavnam with earlier meets held in Margao, Panaji, Selaulim Botanical Garden and Dr. Francisco Luis Gomes District Library, Margao.
A 6-minute documentary, The Man from Gahlour, on the life of Dasrath Manjhi will also be screened before the commencement of the poets meet. Popularly known as Mountain Man, Dasrath Manjhi single-handedly persevered for 22 years with only a hammer and a chisel to cut through a mountain in Bihar, thereby reducing the 70 km distance between Atri and Wazirganj blocks of the Gaya district to just 7 kms. The documentary is written and directed by Robina M Gupta.
All, especially DKA members and Konknni lovers are kindly requested to attend the function.
