Award for Rego, Kharvi, Saldanha

The Karnataka Konkani Sahitya Academy has decided to confer its honorary award for 2004 on Gladys Rego for literature, Felix Saldanha for arts and Narayana Kharvi for folk art. The award in respective categories will be presented to them at a function to be held at Kumar Gandharva Rangamandir in Belgaum on July 9.

Relax norms

In a press release issued here on Wednesday, the academy said that it used to give away honorary and book awards to five persons each in the past. However, the State Government has decreased the number of awards from five to three each in the respective categories. The academy has urged the Government to relax norms pertaining to the presentation of book award. The revised norms state that there should be a minimum of 10 publications in each category under the book award. The academy has said that it is difficult to find so many publications in each category in Konkani and the award will be announced once the Government announces new guidelines.
