TAG released 3 Books of Tiatr at the hands of Chief Guest Fausto V. Da Costa


Tiatr Academy Goa under its scheme ‘Preservation of Tiatr Literature’ organized books release function on 13th August 2018 at the Conference Hall of Tiatr Academy of Goa, Campal, Panjim in which 3 books of tiatrs namely ‘Zhoim Pritimog Vosta’ and ‘Mog Mogan Jiye’ written by Domingos Coelho (Comedian Domnic), ‘Xirlo’ written by Mario Menezes and ‘Nirmonn’ written by Albert Leo de Souza were released at the hands of the Chief Guest Shri. Fausto V. Da Costa, a well-known writer and Editor of ‘Gulab’ magazine.

Speaking on the occasion Shri. Fausto appreciated Tiatr Academy of Goa and all the three writers for taking the initiative in printing their tiatrs in the form of books. He further said that the tradition of publishing tiatrs in the form of books is not a recent practice but has its origin dating back to somewhere in 1909 wherein we used to get to read many tiatrs published in Roman script. He urged the tiatr artistes not to hesitate to express their views in Konkani in Roman script especially on social networking sites and said that even though jealousy towards success of others is a part of human nature, yet we need to rejoice in the success of our fellow tiatr artistes as this will eventually help in motivating and building the tiatr fraternity further on.

Shri. Domingos Coelho, writer of ‘Zhoim Pritimog Vosta’ and ‘Mog Mogan Jiye’, Shri. Mario Menezes, writer of ‘Xirlo’ and Shri. Albert Leo de Souza, writer of ‘Nirmonn’ also expressed their feelings on the occasion.

Smt. Irene Cardozo spoke on the book written by Comedian Domnic, Shri. Brazinho Soares spoke on the book ‘Xirlo’ written by Mario Menezes while Smt. Jasmine Rodrigues expressed her opinion on the book ‘Nirmonn’ written by Albert Leo de Souza.
