  1. Dear readers,

    Among the two pictures posted with this article includes a BJP student ABVP sticked bill on the walls and scribbled the organisation name in red.

    Does PM Modi ‘Swachh Bharat abhiyan’ is ignored by its own youth cell or it the campaign is merely photoshoot?

    Where are all those BJP cadres who are showed up with ‘Jaddus’?

    Thanks to mission at least one day the citizens don’t need to walk looking on the floor.

    All these effort is merely waste if there are no awareness about civic sense. You can’t sell betel leaves and ask the user to wipe the wa.Cigarette or Bidi and ask the smokers to lift the butt.You can’t stop selling chewing gums and ask the chewer to put it in trash.

    What Mangalore desperately need is its falling image from pub attacks,morning mist,love jihad,moral police and cow chase.

    If there is no peace in the city cleanliness for whom?

    I appeal to the Ramakrishna mission to focus on this areas before going all out efforts cleaning only find the piles accumulated next morning.

    • shAIKH mOHD rizwan : “I appeal to the Ramakrishna mission to focus on this ……”

      Ramakrishna Mission had Ramakrishna Parama Hansa and Vivekananda as the great teachers who did not differentiate between humans as Hindus and non-Hindus. Vivekananda declared the food habits of Vedic people in general and Brahmins in particular and admitted about their beef eating for food. (not limited to yajna or yaga only as claimed by the “educated” uneducated) he Mission is aclaimed world over for its liberal religiosity and secular dispensation.

      BUT, ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY HAVE FOUND A NEW GURU! FOR THE FIRST TIME THEY LEARNT ABOUT THE “VIRTUES OF BEING CLEAN” AND HAVE BEGUN TO SWEEP, WHICH RAMAKRISHNA PARAMA HANSA AND VIVEKANANDA HAD NOT TAUGHT THEM! GURU MODI DID IT.

      JUST LIKE THE NEW FOUND TOY WITH WHICH THE LAD PLAYS ENSCONCED IN IT IRRATIONALLY TILL IT GETS ANOTHER DIFFERENT TOY, THE MISSION NOW HAS THIS NEW FOUND VIRTUE TAUGHT BY THE GREAT GURU, MODI. LET THEM PLAY WITH THIS GURU MANTRA, UNAWARES OF WHAT IT REALLY AIMS AT.

      MISSIONARY ‘TYAGEES’ IN CAHOOT WITH THE POLITICAL ‘BHOGEES’!!!

  2. May imaginary God bless these volunteers!! It’s sad to see how people are still throwing garbage everywhere including ABVP posters!! Unbelievable!! Even more depressing is people like our ‘taqiyya’ expert Sharia Shaikh who takes every opportunity to blame sanathana groups even when they do good work!! Tribal fantasies are dangerous to humanity for more than one reason!!!
