Soon after liberation there were changes in Catholic rituals which took place globally as well as in the church in Goa. It was a follow up to the post vatican changes effected in the liturgy. The church began to use the vernacular instead of the Latin church dialect. In Goa, a movement began in the corridors of the seminary to change existing Latin to vernacular kokani. It is decided in this article, to demonstrate this with rest to two classical masterpieces of the church, that is, tantum ergo and o salutaris. Addition will follow tomorrow.
THE PLAYS THAT ARE DISPLAYED IN INDIA HAS A FIXED THEME, COURSE, STORY, DIALOGUES ETC.

Our journey- how it all began
Our was an ordinary family story motivated by our mother
Seeds in-house family magazine
Around 1964 extended members of our family launched a few pages issue titled
Holiday mood. Produced in holidays. For special occasions like family weddings.
It was just a manuscript WRITTEN IN PENCIL and carbon copies of that manuscript in paragraphs and columns (newspaper style)
As school magazine (short lived)
After registering with the registrar of newspapers New Delhi, we published SCHOOL LINK.
A magazine FOR SCHOOLS IN GOA.
We had made a resolution not to include advertisements.
Articles would be collected from students of various schools
Some fine articles were collected from our student contacts.
Some topics were suggested. Some of the students who contributed have shown brilliance in their careers later in life .
Creative material, in the form of, original jokes, cartoons and cross-word puzzles appeared in the magazines.
Printing was manual old fashioned , led to errors.
We survived hardly a year due to printing cost and distribution difficulties. Though first print was 2000 copies ( ambitious plan ), subsequently it dropped to few hundreds
It did not spark the imagination of the student community in Goa.
In course of time we sifted to computer prints of cyclostyled copies.
Though project failed, it was for us an experience. .

The method of teaching was lecture method. The teacher used to write the topic and elaborately explain the same. Clarity and simplicity was more important. A good teacher was expected to be as clear as possible. Subsequently the students wrote notes in the form of questions and answers.Some teachers were known to have made notes almost half a century back or made by his predecessors. The notes were valued as per antiquity. The teacher would dictate to the students the notes in precise words. He was not supposed to leave areas in the dark to be filled by the students through the process of the reasoning or imagination.
WHERE IS MY CHEESE?
WHERE IS MY LAND?
Is it my fault? Was it my choice?
Am I a perpetrator? or a victim of history.? or seller, broker of my own land?
Or just a a person who happened to be there?
It happened in a tiny place in Estado da India.
Misleading to translate it as State of India.
But so it was historically known.
Once it meant territories after crossing cape of GOOD GOPE
Some even included the sea, besides the land.
A WILD PRESUMPTION
I was a resident in the territory called Gaonv? .
My ancestors registered our family in village records.
as GANVKAR and then due to climate and other factors went to sleep.
AND WENT TO SLEEP .
Mean while some others tried the level best to penetrate the system.
From here as well as far as Europe.
A few succeeded .
It was recorded in DOCUMENT CALED FORAL
WE CALLED IT MAGNA CARTA.
SURE THAT IT HAD ACHIEVED IMORTALITY.
WAS IT SO? OR FAILED JURISPRUDENCE on which ancestors relied??
TODAY MY IDEENTITY IS QUESTIONED.
Did I really have one?
Was that a dream ?
A Autonomous village system _ ( an ancestral dream?)
These are not verses? nor poetry Nor prose.
Just words for you to imagine., reflect interpret or mis…?
