Kuwait Goans rock at NYC Nite


Hudson Fernandes wins NYC King Award               Genevive Dias crowned NYC Queen 





As much as it was an evening of friendship, the NYC Nite turned out be an enchanting and absorbing one too. The Nite featured a cornucopia of entertainment and fun at the artistic Fakhruddin Palace hall. Colorful is the only word to describe the musical evening organised by Navelim Youth Centre on 3rd October 2002 as part of their annual social festivity.


SkyHigh (Goa) at their best...

There were many highlights of the night. Renowned musical group from Goa, the SkyHigh, brought specially for this event were welcomed to a warm applause. They reciprocated in grand style providing the people with superb entertainment of enchanting world and Goan numbers. Their music was simply the best Kuwait has heard in recent times.

Also featured for the night were the Scorpions (Kuwait) who played some scintillating hits. The night was filled with spontaneous dance to the rhythmic music of these two bands.


NYC President greets everyone in attendance...

Navelim Youth Centre showed the ideal way to build goodwill among Goans here in Kuwait and as President Agnello A.S. Fernandes put it: to promote love, affection and friendship among the community.

In his welcome speech, Mr. Fernandes thanked the advertisers, sponsors and NYC's devoted members for making this event a grand success. He also appreciated the tolerance of the enthusiastic and disciplined guests to the poor service meted out by the hotel and their inability to cater to everyone at times. He appealed to everyone gathered to bear with the organizers as the crowd turned out to be beyond the capacity of the Palace hall. Apart from this hiccup, and a small hitch with the sound system, the guests had a most enjoyable time during the whole event.


NYC King and Queen...

The incident which provided the definitive oeuvre for the evening's presentation was the NYC King and Queen contest. After a series of cat-walks and tough questionnaires, the panel of 7 judges selected Genevive Dias as the NYC Queen 2002. She was crowned by NYC's President Agnello A.S. Fernandes.

The NYC Princess 2002 was awarded to Nisha Leslie Braganza and was crowned by Steven Tellis, Vice-President of the Centre. Hudson Fernandes emerged as the NYC King 2002 in another tough contest, while Julio Cardozo was crowned the NYC Prince. The King and Prince were crowned by Nita Fernandes and Mrs. Luis Fernandes (Al Shaya) respectively.

Mr. Hazem Eisa Al Eisa, Managing Director of Hazem Gen. Trad. & Contracting Est. and Executive Manager of the Bank of Kuwait & Middle East was the guest of honour for the evening. A galaxy of eminent personalities were present. The versatile Lloyd D'Souza was the master compere for the show.


A Konkani album by Navelim Youth Centre's General Secretary, Katty De Navelim, entitled "Dennem" comprising of 10 memorable songs sung by various artistes from Goa and Kuwait, in cassette and CD form was released by Agnello A.S. Fernandes at this function. The album featuring catchy songs & jokes on various subject will also be released in Qatar on 10th October 2002 where SKY HIGH are performing at a dance function in one of the 5 star hotels. Navelim also released its souvenir to commemorate the musical nite. Everyone in attendance was presented a NYC novelty memorabilia of a glass candle.

May there be many more such evenings...
