Houston Konkanis performed a dance to the song “Saath Chendi Chelyon” on Sunday, July 1 at Konkani Sammelan 2012 , held in Edison, New Jersey.
The performance was a very big hit. The theme of the song was about the professional life, society has adopted, without giving importance to the family. The wives were frustrated about the professional nature of their husbands.
“2012 Konkani Kids Camp” – Hospitality Committee had arranged a camp run by an accredited local YMCA. This was an opportunity for the kids to have his/her own special Sammelan experience, just a few feet away having fun, making new Konkani friends from all over USA and Canada. This camp also gave the kids, m a sense of independence, and nurtured the community spirit “Heart to Heart – home away from home”. We present some classic Konkani songs that were used to bring children closer to their home, their culture and their language.

Konkani Sammelans held by our Saraswat Brethern in the US have been the most popular events in bringing together our community in a country far away from their roots. The “Proud to be Konkani” song has been very memorably preseted at the Sammelan, and we are thankful to have a copy of it, to be shared with Saraswats worldwide!
We sincerely want to thank you for being a part of the â€œAwaken the Konkani in Youâ€ experience. The Santa Clara Convention Center was buzzing with Konkani chatter for three days. 1307 delegates from all parts of the world attended the convention. Most cherished was this opportunity to meet friends and relatives. The Panchadik Lounge with backdrops from Mangalore, Goa & Kumata was a perfect place for socializing.
