  1. May (imaginary) God bless these folks for ‘shrama daana’ to make our society a better place to live. I’ve given up on some of our elected officials who still refuse to attend any of these events to show moral, symbolic support. They had 39 chances in the last 9 months and they chose to ignore every one of them purely based on religious and political bias. Then they wonder why mangaluru was not selected for ‘smart city’ project!! Go figure!

    • I’ve given up on some of our elected officials …. – Joker Rampu

      “Our elected officials”? What? What on your dhogla chaddi did YOU have to do with the process of electing officials in India? Don’t you remember – you need a visa JUST to visit India, ya Rampa.

      And then, we all know pretty well that you are a staunch ದೇಶ ಭಕ್ತ (so what if you fled India sometime during the Bengal famine of 1943… just to indulge in some पेट पूजा?) who is overly concerned about stuff in India. You see, that definitely explains why you NEVER lose a chance to call India a 3rd world country!

      And despite calling it a 3rd world country, isn’t it THE mother of ALL jokes when you bleat that you’ve given up on some of OUR elected officials? Why pin hopes on some 3rd world country politicos – and THAT TOO when you have absolutely NO SAY in the matter of elections?

      Now, do you understand why you are such a Rampa? 🙂

  2. really good job. the vendors/residents also should do their bit and not litter the roads.
    unfortunately in our country public property is not our property- its nobody”s- an orphan.
    people dont realise that it is their tax money that is being misused-
    may be nobody pays tax in central market area!
