Unforgettable H Britton

Unforgettable H Britton

I was shocked to learn about the demise of the evergreen iconic Konkani stage artist Hermegildo Camilo, popularly known as H Britton.

In earlier times, tiatr was not as popular as it is today. In the year 1969, Britton had walked into Sesa Goa mines at Sirsaim for an interview. On seeing my familiar face, he asked me where food was available. At that time, as there was no canteen at Sesa Goa mines, I took him to the private house where I was myself eating. Thereafter, our friendship grew.

He will be long remembered by tiatr lovers as a towering personality who mesmerised audiences with his talent wherever he performed. His passing away is a great loss for Goan tiatr lovers as well as to the Konkani stage and especially to his birthplace, Britona village.
