Anil Kumar Shares His Experiences

Shri. Anil C. Devulkar popularly known as Anil Kumar, a renowned artiste of tiatr stage appealed to the present day tiatr artistes to preserve and promote the unique format of Goan tiatr. He further stated that such a dramatic form is not found anywhere in the country or abroad and hence there is urgent need to preserve tiatr in its original form. He was speaking in the ‘Meet the Artiste’ – ‘Kolakorak Bhett’, the monthly programme organized by TAG on 30th March 2011 at TAG’s Conference Hall, Campal, Panjim.

Speaking further Shri. Anil Kumar expressed that although he is in the tiatr field for a long time, yet he continues to be a student of tiatr stage. Sincerity and dedication is of utmost importance for any artiste to create a niche for himself or herself he said. Believing in this principle he stated “I achieved a lot through tiatr and I dedicate all these achievements to my fans” he concluded.

Answering numerous questions he agreed that in the past there were no enough facilities on the tiatr stage which are found today. In spite of such drawbacks tiatr artistes of yester years have contributed immensely for the development of tiatr.

Answering another question Shri. Anil Kumar expressed that acting in Khell-Tiatrs is difficult because it is not only the prose part that you are acting but you should be well versed in singing too. If the artiste is not good in singing he might have no place in acting in Khell-Tiatrs. Whereas on the other hand, he stated that acting in Tiatrs is beneficial because many a time he/she only acts and do not sing any song and that is possible only in tiatrs.

Senior tiatr artistes like John Claro Fernandes, Joe Rose, Ben Evangelist, C. D’Silva, Rico Rod and others attended the function. Heroines of tiatr stage of yester years namely Jessie Dias, Platilda Dias, Fatima, and Josefina Dias who acted in the lead roles with Anil Kumar were also present for the meet.  Fr. Manuel Gomes and researcher Dr. Rafael Fernandes also graced the occasion.

Earlier Shri. Tomazinho Cardozo, President, of TAG welcomed the audience. Shri. Anil Kumar was presented a memento by TAG as a remembrance of this monthly programme ‘Meet the Artiste’. Later Shri. Victor de Sa, Member Secretary of TAG proposed a vote of thanks. Shri. Joy Fernandes compared the function.
