Mumbai, Apr 10: A new Konkani social comedy drama written by Joseph D'Souza Borivli was staged successfully in Bhayander on April 7 at Our Lady of Nazareth School Ground Bhayander. The drama was staged on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of Konkani Catholic Welfare Association Bhayander.

The programme began with a stage programme. Parish Priest of Bhayander church Fr Anselm Gonsalves, assistants Fr Michael Pen, Fr Anthony Banz and Church School head mistress Gracy Mendonca were the guest of the programme.

Knowing their actual motto to grab her property of 50 acres, Estel tests them and gives the verdict that she rejects them all and chooses to join the convent.

Hats off to Mr. Joseph Dsouza and all the actors. The drama was very entertaining and worth watching. Acting, stage setting, background music and songs blended very well. Last scene was quite emotional where ‘estel’ going to the convent to become a nun. Needless to say, we have vibrant talents! Congratulations to all. Well done. We look forward to having more and more plays in the years to come.
