Panaji, March 10 (IANS) Despite its name 'Nuns N Roses', there were no head-banging nuns at a unique concert-cum-theatre performance in the honour of Sister Christobel, one of Mother Teresa's most well-known proteges.

The event held in the heart of Panaji chronicled the life of Sister Christobel, a pillar of the Missionaries of Charity, an order started in India by the late Albanian-born Christian missionary Mother Teresa.

"The concert is a free show. It aims to spread awareness on the work being carried out selflessly by Sister Christobel's Trust. The trust has been able to support and help hundreds of homeless people, including children and the elderly, who were abandoned on the streets," said Mumbai-born Annabelle Ferro, director of a play, which is part of the concert.

The Trust runs two Mother Teresa's Roses homes in Goa, where abandoned children are raised and cared for, apart from running similar operations in Mumbai.

A 22-piece German Jazz ensemble The Phoenix Foundation Big Band and Indian classical musicians Ramamani and Ramesh Shotham also performed at the concert.
