Book synopsis/description:

Mannkam ani Motiam (Jewels and Pearls) is a book of Konkani poems by Pobre Fernandes who is passionate about the village he lives in and the fields of his forefathers. Naturally, many of the poems are penned in praise and admiration of nature and village life. Featuring in this collection are poems on corruption and the many masks that people wear when in places of worship and once home. There is also a tribute to Mother Teresa and her selfless works of charity.

An audio album of the same name was simultaneously released which contains select poems from the book set to music by Elick Vaz.

Interestingly, Pobre Fernandes has also composed the music of the first track, Mamageli boilam-gaddi, besides singing this nostalgic song recounting the good old days when the bullock-cart was an important mode of transport. The Mother Teresa tribute is also part of the album.

He has to his credit an earlier book of poems titled Muddye Ponda.

Mannkam ani Motiam is made available along with the audio album for Rs. 250/- only.
