Akademi Address


Sahitya Academy recognized Konkani as an independent language in 1975. A decade later, Konkani also came to be recognized as the Official language of Goa.

Konkani is spoken in the coastal region of Western India stretching from Mumbai to Cochin. It is however in Sawantwadi, Goa and Karwar that it occupies the place of the native language. In the cities of Mumbai and Mangalore it is widely spoken while in Kerala it is the second most widely spoken language. Living under four different administrations and being dominated by speakers of other languages, Konkanis have come to integrate themselves in these states and acquired different cultural backgrounds. 

Just as Konkani unites in a common bond Konkani speakers from far flung territories, it also brings together people belonging to different religious communities into one cultural stream. Konkani was spoken even during the vast Portuguese rule. Shenoi Goembab alias Vaman Raghunath Varde Valaulikar began the Modern Konkani Movement.

The freedom struggle in Goa (1946-1961) brought about a new realization of the linguistic reality. Writers like Laxmanrao Sardesai and poets like Bakibab Borkar started writing forceful genres in Konkani. A new type of socio-political literature was born which was directed towards the freedom of Goa. Journalism flourished in Goa as never before. The liberation of Goa had opened wide the floodgates of creativity. All forms of literature began flourishing as never before. Konkani had seen a struggle for its survival and development. 

Goa Konkani Akademi strives to accelerate this pace of development of Konkani by encouraging writers, researchers, scholars, artistes etc. It is consistently involved in bringing Konkanis together from all the areas with a aim to fulfil the objectives of flourishing the identity of the people and masses.
