Mangalore: Jagotik Konknni Songhotton, a Global Konkani Organisation will be convening the 2nd Global Conclave on August 23, 2015, at Kalaangann, Mangalore to finalise and adopt the ‘Konkani Language Plan’ to ensure a secure future for Konkani.

Addressing a press meet in the city, JKS Secretary General Eric Ozario said that over 200 delegates representing Konkani organisations from around the world are expected to attend.

JKS had organised the 1st Global Conclave in August last year, at which it was decided to initiate Konkani Language Plan, prepare a draft, circulate it among all Konkanis around the world and finalise and adopt it at the 2nd Global Conclave.

Accordingly, a Steering Committee, consisting of prominent Konkani leaders and intellectuals, was formed which conducted a Global Survey, based on which the draft has been prepared. The committee members included Ravishankar Rao, Harriet Vidyasagar and Lingappa Gowda

Konkani Language Plan will be a historic attempt to ensure a secure future for Konkani language and culture. It also seeks to inspire people of other language by planning and setting up their own.

All Konkanis have been requested to study the draft, submit their observations and corrections, and participate in the Global Conclave. The draft may be procured by emailing

JKS Treasurer Louis Pinto and the steering committee members were present at the meet.
