“My freedom is not curbed and it never will”

Damodar Mauzo is the face of modern Konkani literature and has earned glory for it through his works which are acclaimed in India and abroad. He was awarded the Sahitya Akademi Award for his novel Karmelin and his collection of Short stories Teresa’s Man and Other Stories from Goa was nominated for the Frank O’Connor International award in 2015.

Mauzo is an activist as well. He was in the steering committee of Porjecho Avaz, a popular mass movement during 1985-87 demanding inclusion of Konkani in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India, and also official language status for Konkani.   

Recently he received threats from Sanathan Sanstha, a right-wing organisation for his views on communal harmony. Sanathan Sanstha has been accused of involvement in the murders of rationalists Narendra Dabholkar and Govind Pansare. “My freedom is not curbed and it never will” said Mauzo when he received information from the special investigation team that is investigating Gauri Lankesh’s murder
