Goa’s sole Konkani newspaper to shut down
As reported, Goa’s only Konkani daily newspaper ‘Sunaparant’ is going to shut down due to huge losses borne by the management over the years.
In Goa, undoubtedly there is low response from Konkani readership or even advertisers. English newspaper has always reigned in both North and South Goa.
On a personal note, English newspaper like Oheraldo, Navhind times & TOI has always been my first choice. I had a tough time learning to read & write Konkani growing up. But I do love speaking and the dialect in Goa are interesting, but somehow picking up a Konkani newspaper didn’t happen.
