Mumbai, 09 Nov 2012: The members of St. Joseph’s welfare association (regd) a parish Konkani organisation of Mira Road achieved a new mile stone to fulfill thier long cherished dream to stage a professional drama by the members of their own association. "BOKRO" drama written by Nellu Permannur was staged on 3rd November 2012 at the packed church ground
by the association members. Through their excellent acting they proved that if there is determination you can be a good actor.


The programme started with the dance of Vineesha D’Costa. The director of the drama Prasanna Niddodi introduced the artist and the people worked under the stage. The writer "Nellu Permannur" had been in the premises for a week to give final shape for his brain child.


The story of the drama went like this. A hospital watchman’s  wife gives birth to a baby boy. But his wife dies while giving birth due to brain hemorrhage. This watchman had a eye on his own neighbours wife. Coincidentally that neighbours wife too give birth to a child in the same ward but the child dies. Knowing the child is dead and finding a baby boy in the next bed, she changes the dead body of her new born baby with the neighbours new born baby boy. But when the watchman of the hospital finds his wife dead and a dead child besides her, re-exchanges the babies with the help of the staff nurse. With this plan he wanted to put a net on her neighbours wife. He also wanted to take his revenge on this little baby. He does not give his own son the proper education and medication. The son grows but with sickness of his mother of brain hemorrhage. The story winds up when this watchman comes to know that this boy is nobody but his own son when his son is at the death bed due to the lack of medication.


The actors Mark Rozario (Harry), Celestine Casteliono (Mary), Violet D’Souza (Jyothi), Rony Lobo (Paulu), Master Reevan D’Souza (Annu), Diago Rodrigues (Charlie), Helen Noronha (Lilly), Donald D’Souza (Mothi), Sofia D’Sa (Preeti), Arun Noronha (Lori), Lawrence Mathias  (David) Music - Lancy played their role beautifully. Rony D’Souza & Arun Rodrigues worked behind the curtain. Prasanna Niddodi directed the drama and Nellu Permannur is the author.



The performance of all the artist is praise worthy. Acting of Bombay born little child Master Reevan D’Souza was simply superb.


During the stage programme Parish Priest Fr. Dominic Vas, Malaika Appliances chairman Gilbert Baptist , Norona Estate propritor chairman Robert Noronha, Steader International chairman Johnson D’Souza, Kenny from Fair Deal Estate Agency, Dennis Menezes  from RGB Vision, Nellu Permannur and the President present at the dais. Fr. Dominic Vasa honoured Nellu Permannur with a shawl. He also released his new  Konkani telefilm "Tri Moorkh". Canute Menezes proposed vote of thanks
and Prasanna Niddodi compered the programme beautifully.


In my last ten years stay in Mumbai I am witnessing such a show for the first time. I have witnessed several flop drama’s played by so called professional artist. But the members of St. Joseph’s welfare association for the first time came to the stage and gave the performance better than the plays of so called professional artists. If this example is followed by other association we may definitely witness a new revival in the Konkani stage of Mumbai.
