तिळसांज गडद जावंक लागिल्ली...
मंत्रायिल्ली तिळसांज!
देवा कुडींतली दिवली...
चवके वयले लामण दिवे...
तुळशी मुखावयले निरांजन...
हांचो मंगल शांत उजवाड ल्हार जावन
अळंग घरभर पातळ्ळो!
गजाबाप्पाची रामरश्रा...
धुपाचो मंद वास...
तातूंत चांफ्याचो परमळ!
अश्या वेळार सगली वास्तू
तथास्तु, तथास्तु म्हणूंक लागली...
आनी दिसभराचे कश्ट
काडून शिणिल्ल्यो बायलो
वणटीक फाट तेंकोवन...
पांय पातलावन...
विसव घेवंन बसल्यो.

The novel was awarded the Smt Vimala V Pai Vishwa Konkani Best Book Award 2015.
