Shri. Digambar Kamat, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Goa, was the Chief Guest and the veteran Tony Sax, a popular tiatr artiste of yester years was the Guest of Honour on the occasion. Awards were given away at the hand of Chief Minister
Ravindra Bhavan, Pai Tiatrist Hall, Margao 14th Dec. 2011.
President of TAG, Tomazinho Cardozo briefly explained the aim of the Tiatr Academy of Goa i.e Development with mention of its 36 schemes launched for the pourpose. (also see a video separately - see below).
Chief Guest CM Digambar Kamat talked about the song he sang here about 3 years ago making him internationaly famous (Thanks to the Internet/YouTube see link below).
He also said there were so many objections on naming the present Tiatr Hall after Pai Tiatrist but he said he kept his word by overcoming all such hurdles (More of his speech, pl watch a clip separately- see in the end below).
I must say it again here, that Digambar is the right and capable or deliverable person as the minister for Art and Culture dept. and I have said it even long before he become the Chief Minister. Besides, credit for formation of TAG and naming the Tiatr Hall, we all know, goes to him.
While thanking TAG, Sabina said one does not get such awards just like that nor one can buy it in shops but one has to earn for it through one's hard work, sacrifices and sincerity.
List of all 23 Tiatr Artistes, the recipients of this awards in year 2009 and 2010 are also shown in the video at the end.
Roseferns (Vice President of TAG) welcomed all and Victor de Sa (TAG's member secretary) proposed vote of thanks.
