WHAT GOOD CAN COME FROM… ANOTHER PURUSKAR?
BHINGAR, SEPTEMBER 05, 2012 : There are three types of people who get Puraskars.
The second type of people are those who find fulfillment in being passionate about what they love and their sense of fulfillment, though unrewarded is the invisible award.
The third type of people are those who produce a volume and intensity of research work that is recognized by society and rewarded at a glamour event with fame and glory.
This third type is the Saptahik Upadeshhak Adarsh Shikshak Puraskar 2012 awarded to Fr Dr Nelson Falcao, Ph. D. for his academic, scholarly & voluminous contribution to the Marathi language, literature and culture today on September 05, on the occasion of Teacher’s Day.
