Karwar The town lies about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) south of the KarnatakaGoa border and 519 kilometres (322 mi) north-west of Bangalore, the capital city of Karnataka. Karwar is known by the nearby southern villagers as Konkani word "Kone", Marathi word "Karwan" meaning the corner of the landmass before the river Kali. The local Konkani-speaking people had close connections with Mumbai during that period. Many Marathi-medium schools were established in Karwar and Joida taluks. Marathi films were released in Karwar. The visit of Marathi drama troupes from Mumbai and Pune was an annual feature. However, Konkani-speaking people were disenchanted when Marathis began to claim that Konkani was a dialect of Marathi.
