One group of volunteers cleaned the premises of Lady Goshen Hospital and its surroundings. Second group renovated the Rao and Rao Circle. Third group of volunteers cleaned the Bus shelter in front of Lady Goshen Hospital and both the sides of the road leading to Rao and Rao Circle.

Volunteers under Shubhoday Alva cleaned the whole premises of Lady Goshen Hospital including each nook and corner. They could clear out a tipper load of garbage from the hospital premises. The posters stuck to the front gate and walls of the hospital were removed. After washing, volunteers painted the gate and walls giving much needed face lift.

Thousands of pedestrians and commuters used to painfully witness the hopeless state of Rao and Rao circle. Volunteers of Hindu Warriors Whatsapp Group under the guidance of Dilraj Alva cleaned the circle and painted it. The circle now is wearing a fresh new look.

Two bus shelters opposite Lady Goshen hospital had virtually turned into garbage bins. Volunteers under Shwetha, cleaned the garbage, removed the posters stuck to the walls and washed the bus shelters.

Volunteers also distributed handbills on Swacch Mangaluru Abhiyan to generate awareness among the locals in the area.

  1. It’s indeed a commendable job, I congratulate whole heartedly all the participants for doing such a selfless service to the society without much publicity which our current central govt. is doing opposite to it, only publicity no action.
    Dear all involved keep up the good work, definitely you will make the change in society. If you continue to do such service to the city I am sure once again Mangalore will become neat, calm and peace lovers’ paradise without any prejudice against any community.

  2. As usual, great report by this portal. As the saying goes, one picture is worth a thousand words. The photo showing Lady Goschen hospital wall pretty sums up the ugly reality of mangaluru politics drenched in communal politics. Look at the wall and see how there are posters on ‘saha baalve’ event whose only agenda was to attack, slander and project hindu organizations as terrorist organizations!!!! Remember, these groups preach us on tolerance while littering the town without any hesitation!!! On the other hand, we have a bunch of volunteers going out week after week, cleaning our city streets to make out society a better place to live!!! Unless you are one of those ‘Beef Club’ members, you shouldn’t have any trouble figuring out who really loves our society and who is using our society for political purposes!!!!

    Needless to say, certain political leaders and religious groups continue to ignore this ‘samaaja seve’ purely driven by their political and religious agenda. Very sad and depressing.

  3. Dear readers,

    I appreciate the good work of mission for carrying on the Mahatma Gandhi vision of clean India. I would have expected at least one member from the BJP MLA,MLC or MP would have participated in the programme without invitation.

    I would also like to request the Mangalore corporation to lay down some strict rule of law against the wall posters,buting etc.There should be some accountability.

    The mission should remove the stigma of untouchability, like Mahatma by taking up cleaning the dump yards,toilets,scavenging etc…

    Jai Hind

    Dear Taqiyya artist,
    Why do you keep embarrassing yourself ? Capt.Karnik has been regularly attending these events. Even Nalina Kumaara did attend a few even though I would have expected him to attend far more!! Read earlier reports to educate yourself! By the way, where are the Congress MLAs and MPs? Don’t they want to see a cleaner mangaluru? Is politics more important than doing some social service? Also, what about your community? How come they are missing any positive, constructive activities? See, this is what happens when a community has no good role models or leadership!! Sad!!

    Sir,I am not talking about symbolic presence but active participation without invitation. We know they are only good for ‘selfie with jaddu’ with pre arranged ‘kudda’.

    To be smart city Mangalore is ruled by BJP since last two decade. The city must have much ahead of rest of India.But Sangh parivar has made its own presence felt by pub attack,morning mist attack,love jihad and cow carrying truck.There are 37 attempts from the this NGO to clean the city but RSS volunteers are only good in street march to show strength possing illegal weapons.Are they have any moral responsibility to build this nation?

    Dude, Is Savarkar is not enough role model who henched Mahatama Gandhi assassination?Will you give us one name from RSS who fought behind Mahatma Gandhi and died for India’s independence before challenging others?
