38th Tiatr Competition 2012 - NOVI DIXA

Once the election is won by whatever means, MLA / Minister thinks his seat is firmed or secured for at least next 5 years and that they can do whatever they want including minting money etc by means of corruptions, U-turns etc
Jobs are sold to the highest bidder, Mining leases granted in exchange of crores of Rupees.

Activists turn politicians are no different, I mean, they too change colours e.g.
‘Zero tolerance to corruption’ becomes ‘Some tolerance to corruption is acceptable’’

We all know they are corrupt, corrupt to the core. We all know their involvement in criminal activities, illegal mining, money laundering, drugs, rapes, assaults etc
And yet, we see the same politicians back to power, elections after elections.

Why should we allow the same corrupt and criminal to contest again and again?
Why should we allow our MLAs & MPs  to continue knowingly they are non-performing, corrupt and involved in criminal activities?

Can’t we democratically get rid of such dirty elements for good?
Can’t we recall them the same way we elect them?

Well, there is a solution, a new way ‘NOVI DIXA’ if followed, it is possible to elect only the good and upright persons to represent us as MLAs & MPs.

Tomazinho Cardozo, suggests ways and means to reform the present electoral process
in his latest Tiatr NOVI DIXA (Kala Mogi, Candolim) at the ongoing 38th Tiatr Competition organised by Kala Academy of Goa (supported by TAG) staged on 30th Oct. 2012.

I believe, the new electoral reforms is the need of the hour to save our Goa, to save our Country.

 The  tiatr talks about the present dirty? electoral process and dirty politicians’ tactics including money distribution, muscle power, funding by mining giants, jobs sale etc.

Irene Cardozo, Joycelyn Misquita, Anthony Carvalho, Shivanand Naik, Sheik Amir were in the  lead roles supported by Selza Lopes, Simonia Cardozo, Maria, Edwin, Larissa, Assis etc

The tiatr had 13 songs and my favourite one was the duo sung by Eugenio and Sandra Cardozo. Besides, there were other singers like Mathias Mascrenhas, Edwin Fernandes, Luis Fernandes, Larissa Fernandes, Irene – Tomazinho Cardozo, Joao – Assis Cardozo, Joycelyn Misquita, Valentina Sequeira, Maria Cardozo etc.

Fr. Pratap Naik's Speech

Dear Friends,

To preserve, promote and seek justice for Konknni in Roman script, I had promoted the concept of establishing Dalgado Konknni Akademi (DKA) in the name of famous Konknni lexicographer Msgr. Sebestiao R. Dalgado, at Piedade Institue, Panaji on 17 July 1988. Subsequently on 28 August 1988, at a meeting held at Loyola High School, Margao, Goa, DKA was formally established.

On 28 August 2012, DKA organized a public function at Ravindr Bhavan, Margao, to inaugurate its Silver Jubilee Year. Mr. Manohar Parrikar, the Chief Minister of Goa was the chief Guest. I was invited as a Guest of Honour. Benaulim M.L.A. Mr Caetano D'Silva was a Special Invitee. On this occasion in my speech, I placed before the CM five demands of people who use Konknni in Roman script. In the past, the present CM who was then the Leader of the Opposition had assured me twice in the presence of Late Ul'las Buyanv by saying "If my government comes to power, I will do justice to Konknni in Roman script". I have attached here my entire speech in Konknni. For the sake of those who do not read Konknni in Roman script, here below I have given the five demands which I had placed before the CM.

Demand 1: Every year Kala Academy (KA), Goa gives awards to a best book in Konknni (Devanagari script) and Marathi. A separate category must be created to give award to books published in Konknni in Roman script.

Demand 2: Whatever financial support and other facilities Goa government gives to Marathi Akademi should also be extended to Dalgado Konknni Akademi.
Demand 3: To perform Tiatr and other stage performances throughout the year, build Modern Ravindra Bhavans at Panaji Bus stand and in Mapusa.

Demand 4: Those who want to study and want to teach Konknni in Roman script as an optional subject from Standard I to XII should be given the necessary permission.

Demand 5: In the Official Language Act 1987 Konknni written in Roman script should be included and the injustice which is prevalent for the last 25 years should be eradicated.

Those who really love Konknni and Goa now should use their influence with the State Government, to fulfil these five demands of the users of Konknni in Roman script. We do not want alms but we demand our rights. We do not want sympathy but justice. We do not want mere words but words articulated into concrete actions. Now the hour has has come for all of us to preserve and promote our identity. Hence arise and act.

If you are convinced of these five demands kindly circulate this mail to Goa Ministers, Members of Legislative assembly (M.L.A), Members of Parliament (M.P.), government officials, government institutions, and to your friends. Together we can achieve what looks like a distant dream.
Fr. Pratap Naik SJ
