Amrita Rao honoured in New York!

Over the weekend, a few eminent personalities from the Konkani community were honoured at a gala ceremony in New York. Among these were Bollywood actress Amrita Rao and filmmaker par excellence Shyam Benegal.

Amrita was honoured for her contribution to cinema, while Benegal, who was invited as the keynote speaker, said that it was interesting to look at the recent trajectory of the community, which is among one of the micro-communities of India. The Konkanis invited to the sammelan stand in testimony to the fact that events like these were not chauvinistic gatherings, but occasions to appreciate each other's works and achievements.
