Aiz hem pustok “Songss of Goa” uzvaddak kaddunk amkam vhodd sontos ani obhinam bhogta. Ami rauntav Konkani Bhas uloitole ani ti apli Maim-bhas mhunn manum ghetele hem pustok khoxalkaien vapuddtole mhunn.

“Xiumtim mogrim ghe rê tuka, Sukh ani sontos dhi rê maca.”

Since I have not yet been able to contact the author Vinayak Sadashiw Sukhtanker I have taken the risk of publishing his research work on this website. I take this opportunity of thanking him for his contribution to the Konkani-Song.

The plural of deknni in Konkani remains the same, that of dulpod is dulpodam and that of manddo is mandde. In English it is deknnis and dulpods in the plural, mando in the singular and mandos in the plural.

First Line of Mandos
