Remembering a friend and a teacher - Alfred Rose


Remembering a friend and a teacher - Alfred Rose
Dearest Friend and Guru,



6 years have passed away, you left the tiatrist world and all your fans in deep shock, sorrow and sadness. No one has come to take your place on the Konkani stage.
We will remember you till the end of time. May your soul rest in peace.

Ho cantaracho jhelo Bab Alfie aum thujea 6vea morna vorsanche ugdasac bhetoitam
(21-10-2003 – 21-10-2009).



KONKANI PALKACHO DIVO

I

Khuim asat adle tiastrist, lokak boro divertment ditale
Thode oskotaec sampodle, thode sounsar sodun gele
Ugddas aiz aum cortam tancho, sangat amkam khuim meutele
Bore cantorist voi partist, sasnak the cobar zale.


Ch

Alfred Rose voi bava, kitem keleim deva, oslem dhuens taka kiteac keleim favo
Sobit tacho tallo, aikonk amkam mello, chitun kalzak podla gavo
Cantorist Bangaracho, konak sor corinejo amchea monan sodanch Alfred urlolo zavo
Morna vorvim thujea kalzak toplo kivo konkni palkacho tum dhivo


II


Alfred Rose thujo ugdas cortam, thuje oslo cantorist disonam
Oxem dista thujea talleacho, cantorist zolmank euchonam
Melele moshik khuim baraser dudh, jivi astana valor kollonk nam
Aiz valor thujo colon eta, tuje vinem konkni palk sobonam


Ch


Thodim vorsam zalim, Alfred dhuent aslo, sangat tache pasot zait kon vavurla
Khambo konkni palkacho, cantorist apurbaicho, konem zait taka adar dhila

Aiz sounsarac somplo, Bombay Mahim tum aslo Guru thujo ugddas kela.


III


Alfred thujem cantar cortam, guru tum hea sounsarant nam
Zaite thujea tallean gaithat, matui sobonastanam
Tum podvi corta muntale, tujem kalliz volkonastana
Magtam sorginchem suk favo zaunk, devachi podvi deuch zanam


Ch

Tum palkacher etoch kantar thujem muntoch, aikoteleanchi kalzam zagoitalo
Sasnak Alfred thujo ugddas vochonezo, amchea kalzanim urtolo.
