Late Rosario Rodrigues was born on 24th October 1948 and hails from
Benaulim in Salcete tuluka of Goa. He was a brilliant student during his
childhood days but showed keen interest in dramas. Benaulim was famous
for khell-tiatrists, literate as well as illiterate. Rosario would write
down the scripts for those who could not write. Gradually he started
writing his own scripts and lending it to others. In 1969 he formed his
own troupe and wrote his first khell ?MENAKXI?.

During those days there used to be competitions of khell-tiatrs. Two
different directors would stage their khells for a competition and
results were normally declared after show of hands. In 1971 Rosario
brought a change and staged two khells on the stage. This was called a
Khell-Tiatr as the khell was performed on the stage. He came up with
khell-tiatrs of his own plays namely ?AMI FATOR? and ?EKUCH RATI?. Other
directors also followed this pattern.

Each khell in the khell-tiatr was of one and half hour duration. ?12
Vorsani? and ?Patang?, ?Patkin? and ?Tem?, ?Chedde Cheddvam? and
?Ekleanuch Poila?, ?Hindustani Cheddvam? and ?Frank Sinatra? etc were
some of his famous khell-tiatrs of one and half hour duration each. In
1976 Rosario Rodrigues started a new innovation on the khell-tiatr
stage. Instead of two plays he staged a full length drama of 3 hours
?FATTIM PAULO?. It was a big success. Other directors also followed this
pattern.

There was a time when tiatrs were witnessed by high class and the
literate people while khell-tiatrs by the masses. Rosario Rodrigues
changed this too. He was instrumental in bringing khell-tiatrs on par
with tiatrs so much so that the popularity of khell-tiatrs surpassed
that of tiatrs. Rosario had many innovations to his credit in different
fields of khell-tiatr.

He wrote and directed more than 75 dramas. He was responsible to take
khell-tiatrs to each and every nook and corner of Goa and other parts of
the country. He traveled to Mumbai, Pune, border areas of Karnataka,
Maharashtra to stage his khell-tiatrs. He also staged performances in
the Gulf.

This great personality of the khell-tiatr stage expired at a tender age
of 58 years on 5th August 2003.

In order to keep the memories of late Rosario Rodrigues alive to the
modern generation, TAG celebrates his birth day on 24th instant. Tiatr
lovers and well wishers of late Rosario Rodrigues are requested to
attend the celebrations along with family members and friends.

Late Dr. Rosario Rodrigues..also titled as 'Shakespeare of the Konkani
Stage'..
he was the man responsible to bring a change to konkani khell-tiatrs in
Goa...
which ultimately gave rise to the Non-stop shows and the current format of
tiatrs in Goa.
At a time when Bombay Tiatrist were ruling the tiatr world, so much so that
even the tiatrist
acting in khell-Tiatrs were considered as low class tiatrist...Rosarios
Non-stop shows changed the
scene and other Directors followed him..he mostly acted as a comedian but
here in this clip he is
introducing a new comedian Jesus Antao...Video is not very clear but
audible.
