  1. Great news with dynamic plans and ideas that will benefit Mangalore ten fold. These massive projects require people with vision, people with determination and people with a progressive thought. We wish best of luck to everyone that is involved with this project. We see so many dignitaries in the audience whose leadership can bring multitude of benefits to our City. Surprisingly, we do not see anyone smiling in the audience. Everyone appears to be concerned, for some unknown reason. May God help us all.

  2. Fix Nanthoor circle Mr. Lobo, you cannot blame government because you are part of it. If you can control the hooligans from hurting the business, that would be good too. If they are not willing we could start home industry of VHP in Mangalore, we could give training to young people to be blacksmiths and make trishul, gadha,bow and arrows, we can build a few temples along the way..
