Sachidananda Pattanaik
Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh

Dual Meaning, Complex, immaculate - are a few adjectives that would describe Sachidananda’s work. His works catch your eye even if you are just passing by, and this glimpse takes you into a journey of thought and reflection. Every time you view Sachidananda’s paintings they reveal a new facet, pushing you into a new realm of thought. "A work of art should not set boredom", believes Sachidananda. He works like a sculptor adding & subtracting upon the surface of his paintings - the color is built through a series of layers, which at times are also scratched out. He incorporates the human figure in his paintings in the same vein - building it in and out of the surface. Initially, these figures were mere spectators in the composition of the artwork, but now they appear to be active participants, asserting their presence and subtly revealing the mystery behind their form.
After completing his B.Tech (Computer Science), he is an active member and exhibitor in Scribble Artist Together Group, Hyderabad, India and also set off to exhibit his paintings in many online Arts Gallery. A self taught artist whose only passion is Art.

The Mhamai Kamat House....At Goa
One of the oldest houses in Panjim is that of an important Hindu family in Goa, the Mhamai Kamats who had escaped from the Jesuits crusade in Chandor to convert people to Christianity as per the law enforced then by the Christian Missionaries.

Their house at Panjim is located just opposite the statue of Abbe Faria. Some members did get converted while the Hindu section of the family that remained established alliances with the Vijayanagar rulers and the Portuguese government sections thereby shifting to Panjim in the mid 18th century.

The reason for moving into this house was the close relationship of the Mhamai Kamats with the Raja of Sawantwadi who was a bitter enemy of the Portuguese government in Goa. Since the Kamat family had established diplomatic relations with the Vice regal circle of the Portuguese government, the Raja could have benefited from this. This prompted the shifting of the Mhamai Kamat family to Panjim just near the Idalcao palace which was the Viceroy’s official residence after he had left Old Goa and so have been there ever since.

Just along the waterfront is the famous jetty of the Mandovi river where ships would arrive and depart for Bombay. There was quite a lot of commotion during the arrival and departure of ships due to passengers trying to claim their positions on the ship. Opposite this jetty, one can still find the old public buildings.

Opposite the water creek at Betim, one can see the High Court building built in 1878 besides the famous Mandovi Hotel which offers a magnificent and picturesque view across the river. On the Betim hillside opposite the Panjim jetty is a white building or the Sikh Gurudwara which is the only one in Goa besides the one at Vasco, due to less Sikh population in Goa. The Chapel of Dom Lourenco built in the 18th century, is quite congested and crammed for space with an unusual combination roof of a plastered white dome and red tiled pyramid. Within the chapel are the remains of the altars and coat of arms of the Noronha family. A road to the left of the Mandovi hotel leads to the Azad Maidan.

The Konkani Language...Language of Goa
The Konkani language is the most widely spoken mother tongue of people in each and every part of Goa and is highly responsible for unification of the Goan population.

It is being made as the official language amidst a lot of disputes over its acceptance. Hindus use the Devnagri script while Roman Catholics add the Roman accent to the existing Devnagri script. Although it is widely spoken in Goa, it has a limited use in administration purposes, hence Marathi is made use of for such purposes. Its use as an official language is a major topic of discussion in debates, some favouring it while others going against it.

The Konkani language was initially banned by the Portuguese who destroyed all literary works and books written in Konkani and insisted that Portuguese should be the medium of learning at educational level and used in administrative purposes. It was only in the mid 19th century that the restriction on the use of Portuguese language was lifted due to the extreme difficulty that the Goans faced in using Portuguese for communication as well as commercial purposes. Although Portuguese is not used recently, there are quite a handful of people who still tend to use some Portuguese accent in their conversation, although this is rapidly reducing and only a mere sprinkling of words here and there is observed. Constant debates have been fought over the language to make it official as opposed to Marathi, which is believed to be derived from the Konkani language.

The educational system in Goa follows the Marathi medium of instruction in 80% of the institutes, while only 0.25% follow the Konkani medium. But on a higher scale, English is the most preferred medium of instruction in schools and colleges where 96% of students are taught English. Steps are being taken to include Konkani in the 8th Schedule of the Indian Constitution. The use of English is by far the largest, justified by 3 of the local and national newspapers, which are printed in English.

About my Book waiting for a publisher... Waiting for no man’s land…That’s my destination

Yellow roses with white blossoms rapped around turned a beautiful bookie with a Barbie doll rap around gift pack. I thought if I give it to someone without any occasion without any reason for someone to someone. What if I give, what if I do not give. At last I gave it but the next horrifying situation was quite unimaginable. I was blamed heavily by someone for someone who is my best friend. I was stunned having the climax in front of good gathering. Just like washing my face with a bottle of hydrochloric acid.

I thought my 14 years of friendship gone in vein. I was never before in such awful situation. Why he did this to me at least, all the relationship sacrificed for this event for someone whom he would have known for 3 years .please don’t think it as a suspense thriller, I have to keep it secret for the full film. If the suspense ends here. Then what if everything lies on this if… this if can change everything, it can do everything.
