Addressing the students, Mr. Pundalik Naik brought to light the existence of many genres of literature but lamented that it has failed in achieving its mission of greatly influencing the lives of people. He went on to say that though we have a wealth of literature in the form of texts from the founders of religion / saints and other such material, yet their impact on the lives of people has been marginable. He enforced that though Konknni literature is expressed in different scripts it achieves the same goal. He also spoke on the legacy of Fr. Thomas Stephens, in whose memory, the Kendr carries on the work. Dr. PriyardarshaniTadkodkar in her keynote address was of the opinion that Konknni Literature has had impact on the lives of the people to a large extent."
