Activists to observe MARG Day today

MARG activists have decided to observe November 16 as MARG Day coinciding with the birthday of MARG Founder Gurunath Kelekar.

Kelekar completes 83 years on Friday. He has called the day as his “countdown day” and wants his colleagues and friends to consider the day as such, without “many happy returns of the day.”

With no special emphasis on his birthday, Kelekar has suggested that the day be dedicated to the road. A programme has been arranged on Friday between 4 pm to 7 pm at the Lingayat hall, Margao, wherein people who have lost their lives on roads will be remembered.

The first episode of the Konkani serial Chuk Konnachi, Kheast Konnak produced by MARG and directed by Bipin Khedekar will be released at the hands of Journalist Sitaram Tengse, while Jose Maria Miranda will preside. [H]
