Scheduled language are prescribed by the state for their offical purposes.Among the scheduled languages Konkani is one of them.Further stressing on the importance people can opt to write Competitive exams such as IAS,IFS etc in Konkani.As it is our mother tongue there is need to love the language.If we don’t preserve the culture and the importance,the language will be destroyed in the community.There is a need to protect our language and create more awareness of our mother tongue.For example Kodava language of Coorg is an endangered language,like how the kodava language has been neglected the same way Konkani also can be a endangered language.Hoisting the Konkani flag is a mark of respect to our community.He also appreciated the program that was conducted and wished everyone good luck for the evening function”.
