Doha Qatar;19 Sept :Mangalore Cultural Association (MCA) - Qatar celebrated Monti Fest with great splendour and grandeur on September 15, 2017 at the Indian Cultural Centre Doha. This monti fest celebration was a very significant one as it was MCA’s 10th Monti Fest celebration and this program also a curtain – raiser of MCA’s decennial year.

The program began with emcee, Clement Fernandes’ hospitable welcome to the gathering. In order to seek the blessings of the Almighty on the auspicious program, MCA’s theme song was sung by the members and a prayer song Ye Moriye composed by Wilfy Rebimbus was melodiously rendered by Ms. Clarissa Pinto. Roce with the blessed corn (Noven) was served to the gathering.

The Advisory Members, Mr. Felix Lobo Mr. Wilfred Fernandes and Mr. Jerry Pinto were escorted to the stage by MCA President, Veena Rebimbus Pais and Vice President Clement Saldanha for a short stage program.

President, Veena welcomed the gathering and briefed about the upcoming programs that MCA has charted down for the year and threw light on the works done by the association in the 9 years of its existence. For all the good work done by the association, the members will surely benefit through God’s numerous blessings. She quoted “What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world, remains and is immortal”.  She also extended invitation to the new Mangalorean residents of Doha to join the Association and be a part of the good work done by MCA.

A logo which is the brain child of Mr. Felix Lobo and a slogan that has been fabricated for MCA’s decennial year was unveiled by the advisory members in the presence of the past 2 presidents Mr. Harry Lobo and Mr. Arthur Pais. Mr. Felix Lobo addressed the gathering with an information about the birth of the Monti Fest celebrations in Mangalore and Goa and further edified the gathering on the mission of the Association.
