Dr. Lobo appreciated the service rendered    but   expressed   his   doubts   who   will   remember    his/ her service?   In   his,   well   received   speech,   he   pointed   out   parallels   from  history,   particularly contribution of outstanding doctors from Konkani speaking community of western coast when there was plague and cholera in the 19th and 20th century.

He  also  pointed  out   great  personalities  from Konkani speaking community   who have  done outstanding service for  our country in areas of administration and politics but asked the audience whether they or  their  children  remember them or  their service?
He answered his question by giving a practical suggestion that we must bring out small booklets on these personalities to inspire   our children so that in future too our community have great doctors, administrators and politicians. Dr. Lobo requested KCA to start a library and gave copies of his books and financial contribution to implement his suggestion.
