A tribute to the legendary poet late Sh. B.B. Borkar
The great Goan poet BB Borkar’s poems left an indelible imprint on our society. They were written in different languages (Marathi and Konkani) and thus recognised by everyone in the state. Shri BB Borkar’s poems are well known for depicting the beauty of nature and his love for Goa. As a tribute to this legend in his birth centenary year Sesa Goa in association with the Department of Art & Culture, took the initiative to make a documentary film on BB Borkar’s life and work. Sesa Goa supported Goan filmmaker Mr. Dnyanes Moghe and Mr. Prasad Lolayekar, Director of Art & Culture, in this initiative. A formal function for the launch of the film was organised at Swami Vivekananda hall in Panjim on 10th November 2010.
“In the whole of India, Kashmir, Kamarupa, Kerala and Konkan are supposed to be the richest in scenic beauty. I have had the good luck of drinking deep in the founts of their distinctive charm and thus have my aesthetic sense refined. But if I am to be born again and I am allowed to choose my future birth place, I shall undoubtedly opt for Goa because its great beauty has a supernatural quality of refining the human mind and turning it inward into the depths of creativity and spirituality...”
- BB Borkar.
"Sesa Goa felt that this documentary on the life and cultural work of BB Borkar will not only preserve the rich literature but will also remind the young generation of their valuable Goan literature and inspire them."
