I am also the victim. Even my name is not there in voting list. My name was deleted.
I had voted last year too. Without our permission or without our notice or any document, how anyone can remove the name from the list.
R we not alive?
The concern authority has to take strict action regarding this.
Barke station duplicate voters FIR – I didn’t know that we require two application forms to change our voter card address – one for registering new address and other for deleting old address! Why don’t they simplify process with a single form?
RSS people are dangerous for the country.
Shobha and Nalin will ride on Modi wave and win. BJP will get more seats from Karnataka compared to last time.
Modi will become PM again.
Prof Nayak, this is not a prediction. This is based on watching various channels.
Nice write up alfie
It is Modi wave and aka Cong I podi wave.
We know what is “under table support” for politicians. But what is this “undercurrent of support”? Is it misspelt “under currency support”?
NRI with permanent resident status in Australia is eligible to vote.
So what is the problem if he chose to come down and vote?
How does it make him a porter as Dhaval is saying?
There is a limit for implying insults at others.
Wait till 23rd May when you will realise that your jokers of kai kangress would have got less than 44.
I agree with Dhaval Kumar he is probably a porter or a loader. Besides soon after elections he went away to Wherever Timbuktu and would have never seen the ground reality. He should have stayed back so he could have a glimpse of the Achche Din too. 🤣🤣🤣
Lo Raj kummy sumke mudde tinnappa. Yaake bada bada annodu?
Shatru has no credibility.
Bele ijjandina Achari baleda peenkaan ketti lekka paterodchiye. Modi yenkulena PM. Give him respect.
This is quite suspect. Voting is only for Indian Citizens. He must be working as a porter at the airport which is a contract job. He is reeling that he is a screening officer. All lies like his political boss.
First of all what is your achievements? By the you were missing at Nehru maidan Yesterday. Please tell me how much you know about Vijaya bank. Why you are opposing for naming of LHH road as Mulky Sunderrram Shetty Road. you are a accidental MLC. Try to win some elections my dear…………..
Namma kudla mein?
Jao bhai. Yeh Bihar thodi hai?
What is Pappu’s contribution?
Mazaak samaj rakha hai kya?
That’s a step forward. Don’t look at party but send a able, learned and efficient MP from the constituency to the parliament so they will facilitate such steps to develop the constituency. Bravo to BJP leaders who have supported Pramodanna.
Liers. Where it is mentioned in Congress manifesto that Mangaluru will be made doorway to Karnataka? Congress is harping on expressway for more than 25 years! Except for Srinivas Mallya no other Congress politician has contributed to the development of Mangaluru. When BJP ruled states have implemented smart city projject Congress ruled states have shown very poor progress. It is well known fact that Congress ruling Karnataka denied the central government benefit of Rs. 6000 to farmers by not sending the list of beneficiaries.
Look at a few of progress the country has made during last five years BJP rule at the centre:-
2013-2014 4.5% of GDP
2017-2018 3.5% of GDP
Congress always borrow money from World Bank, Asea Bank etc and puts country under burden of debt irrespective of whether it rules at the centre, the state or at local muncipality level. Do you know how much money Mangaluru City Corporation has borrowed from international financial bodies? When BJP was in power in MCC it put all effort to bring down laon burden. Now again loan burden of MCC has gone up. Do Congress borrow money for development or corruption?
If fiscal deficit goes down then in general inflation rate will also go down.
Inflation rate in 2013 – 9.13%, in 2018 – 4.74%, in 2019 – 4.32%.
Ease of doing business 2019 – 77th rank – business freindly country
Congress 2012 – 131 2014 – 142
There are lot more BJP achievements during 2014-2019 rule at the centre like toilet construction, LPG supply to homes, rural electrification etc.
We had successive Congress state governments yet this was not done, why did they not do it then ?
Dil aisa kisi ne tera toda

It is good decision to defeat the people who works against people who get % from rich people.
So, what next?
Magistrate did not say “No slogans were raised”. But what prosecution could not prove is that which student raised the slogan
Whoeevr thinks it is doctored, should look athe video and intract informally with people who were there. You will know the truth. Professors of that institution have clearly mentioned that such slogans were raised in the campus.
Whats your contribution? Dividing people on communal lines.. NO Thanks..

I wish the official work like this through out, elections or no elections

Is it true that he had a brief hide and seek session with Nalin at the 1000 khambada basAdi?
PS: Did I hear that voice ‘daaktre Irena mage punyavanthe’?
Nahin. Dear kottaroo Pujary bida.
Congress is more powerful than any other party in the Era of Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi., But Now It is Powerless party because it is not having Such a leadership that can equal to Modi., So Please think as a common man and good citizen of India in welfare of Indian Sub Continent. Support the good One.
PC Sandeep Patil should introduce traffic sentinels like Goa. The whole departement can be run from traffic fines while paying the sentinels a livelihood which in turn will have better road discipline, lesser traffic violations.
Who is this chap…..?
From Christians Not Happy having Election Day on Maundy Thursday'- Karnataka Christian Social Welfare Societyon
Do not make issue . Maundy Thursday is not a public holiday. All christians will go to vote .
From Christians Not Happy having Election Day on Maundy Thursday'- Karnataka Christian Social Welfare Societyon
I agree with and standby the DC/DEO, Mr.Senthil, decision not to shift the dates and create further confusion in the chaos known as “India”.
My official records proclaim my religion to be Roman Catholic. Therefore, I assume I fall under the category “Christian”.
I, hereby, declare that I do not know nor have I ever met this group of people who claim to represent “The Christians”. I have not given them any authority to speak on my behalf or to represent my views.
Just as people belonging to a “religion” shun being associated with terrorists and their acts. Similarly, it should not be assumed that some people represent the thoughts/acts of all the people affiliated, by whatever means, to a/any community.
I fail to see how Article 25 is being violated by the ECI. It should be remembered that this election is being held in 7 phases over close to a month all over India, so somebody somewhere in India is going to be affected in some way, or another, considering that India is a country that is “mad for religion”!
Religion is a private affair and it should not interfere with public activities.
From Christians Not Happy having Election Day on Maundy Thursday'- Karnataka Christian Social Welfare Societyon
Christians should stop being crybabies to complain about such matters – Don’t worry guys. All is not lost. Jesus is going to resurrect again by the subsequent Sunday. This event happens year after year as you know. Sabar karo.
When for developmental reasons the fish market is bring moved, why are these opportunist politicians promising something that will stall the development? Same has happened in Bunder and Central Market, which should have been moved to a dedicated area outside of the city limits so congestion of roads can be cleared of all the heavy vehicles entering the city and the mess of garbage dumping and filth.
Fake propaganda. It’s not acting.
Srh in great form they will beat Dc today.Dc have quality in batting but srh continues their winning run.
Very Nice Coverage.
Olle joke. Keep dreaming
This looks very promising and achievable.
Opposition accusing PM with the Labels such as Chor and now talking of Dignity?

I have fond memories of this house while my grandfather Sri M. D. Kini who happened to be a close Family Friend would visit the Family on important days in the year specially the New Year Day where we used to spend Quality time watching the Sea from the open porticos decked with rare artifacts. A perfect Gentleman Uncle Lobo & Aunt Louella were. A Glance up the stairs even to date which had some rare photos & Artwork all over the house with one of the best Furnitures in the right quantities not to forget the white colored Old Car which was Uncle Lobo’s favourite with Cliffy as it’s Driver. Great Family & Great Contribution to Society those Days
Hats off dear Chandu..so proud of you 😍
Yes. Indian National Congress was standing as chowkidar for last 70 yeasrs not allowing poor to cross poverty line, move up and become rich. But the chowkidar Modi is busy pulling poor people up the poverty line and then standing as chowkidar to guard that they will no move down again! Yes. Modi is Chowkidar of rich!

And Nawaz Sharif,
“Excerpt from the article,
“LAHORE: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif facilitated release of his ‘orderly’ in prison on bail, ARY News reported on Wednesday.
Sawar Hussain, a prisoner in Kot Lakhpat Jail, who was made to serve as orderly (personal help) to the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was undergoing a jail term in a murder case.”:
It is said that when two scientists meet there is jealousy between them as to who would discover or invent something first, but when two crooks; Sharif (BeSharif, former Pakistan Prime Minister and presently Pakistan Crime Prisoner), and Hussain (the late Saddam) meet; especially in this case in jail, there is camaraderie between them to commit together the next crime, perhaps in Indian Kashmir.”
I appreciate the couple for taking such trauma in their this age and peacefully fighting the case! They are well deserved need a big applause and we all should Sopport in their justice seeing 🙏
Very well organized seminar. We enjoyed listening to the speeches on line. Congratulations Prof. Akhliesh. Your years of hard work and dedication has resulted in an exemplary department of speech and hearing.

Lobo Prabhu used to represent Udipi constituency. George Fernandes also won from Bombay South and later Muzzaffar Nagar. They did not belong to Cong I.
Fear of the main stream may be the driver of this psychosis.
I do not think any right thinking Indian will waste the vote on a 50 y old adolescent.
What a waste of life and resources!
The article trips over itself and the author contradicts himself and his stated intentions.
Indians who wish to better their life must stop thinking of getting their govt. entangled in their religion, caste etc.; all they ought to think of is for their govt. to provide them with “rule of law” , nothing more – nothing less(includes the best service standards of the police, the armed forces, the judiciary, the administration, common amenities).Period.
As a citizen in a democracy we elect our representatives for the express purpose of making or modifying laws in sole conformity with the Constitution so as to provide us all “the rule of law” ( i am talking about laws as those acceptable in any civilized progressive society as commonly accepted in secular democratic republics all over the world and not those of psychopathic tyrants or religious fundamentalists)
Religion is something private and personal and you don’t want the govt. involved in that just as you don’t want the govt. in your bathroom, bedroom and toilet. Separation of religion and state is an essential tenet of a republic.
Tyranny of the “minorities”(self-labelled) is the corollary of the tyranny of the “majority”.
The Constitution of India has adequate safeguards for all future generations including the past[ considering that the author himself could join the IAS(unless he got in based on some reservation and not his own merit), then he attained the post of CS by way of seniority (unless he attained it by other means ,e.g.: sycophancy), then he even became a minister ( perhaps he was elected by the people of some constituency unless he became a minister due to some other consideration)]. Well, besides him, as an ordinary citizen, I ,with a Roman Catholic name, have never ever experienced any discrimination whatsoever anywhere in India!
The Constitution of India:
15. (1) The State shall not discriminate against any citizen on grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex, place
of birth or any of them.
16. (2) No citizen shall, on grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex, descent, place of birth, residence or any of
them, be ineligible for, or discriminated against in respect of, any employment or office under the State.
Right to Freedom of Religion
25. (1) Subject to public order, morality and health and to the other provisions of this Part, all persons are
equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right freely to profess, practise and propagate religion.
26. Subject to public order, morality and health, every religious denomination or any section thereof shall have
the right— (a) to establish and maintain institutions for religious and charitable purposes;
(b) to manage its own affairs in matters of religion;
Protection of interests ofminorities.
29. (1) Any section of the citizens residing in the territory of India or any part thereof having a distinct
language, script or culture of its own shall have the right to conserve the same.
Right of minorities to establish and administer educational institutions.
30. (1) All minorities, whether based on religion or language, shall have the right to establish and administer
educational institutions of their choice.
I recommend readers of this article to watch/read the below and make up their mind on their own about whether they wish to live in servitude – living off crumbs thrown at them by “saviours”, like the author proposes or whether they wish to live a life of dignity as a human being(irrespective of their “denominations “ and affiliations) and as sovereign citizens of this country not needing any favours from anybody.

Alex Sir, why do you think Christians should vote for Congress always. Let them be open minded whom to vote for. Christians are educated and can understand political shenanigans. We prefer to vote for suitable candidate, without anything in return. Some people from previous thought processes think that only the Hand or Indira still needs to rule this country, and never upgrade their thinking or knowledge. Hope Christians come out of this vote bank politics and vote independently.

From Election commission of India not just leaving voters behind but utterly confused - anomalies on the official websiteon
Dear Mr. Peter, Indeed a detailed note, thank you. Yes I do agree with you. I have experienced it myself. Ever since my child turned eligible to cast the vote I made it a point to get the Election card done. My first attempt was on 15th Jan 2019, uploaded the document and waited for a month did not see any movement of the file. on 21st Feb i called the toll free number and got to know that i had not mentioned my constituency therefore it was pending. On21st Feb I re-registered on the NVSP portal, was glad to see that the file started moving stage by stage within a fortnight the file had reached the last stage of verification, was expecting the card anytime parallelly wanted to check the status online, to my surprise i see the application status back to stage 1. Tried reaching the toll free number but of no use and all my call went unanswered had almost given up. But this morning after reading this article I reached out to 1950 was glad that my call was answered, the executive told me that due to technical issue the actual status is not reflecting online but the card it under process and would reach me during the 1st week of April 2019. No choice but to wait and hope my child get the chance to exercise her rights during this election.
The uneducated ,racist CCP prove once again how ignorant they are.
It is up to the D.L. to decide such matters.
Now in which road buses are parked & garbage dumped? Bad luck of residents of that road!
Mr Alfie, When I went to talk to Taluk Head Official regarding this problem along with other problems on premises, First Warning He gave Me that: “I Should Talk To Him In Kannada Only”. In few minutes while I was still there Same Person started talking to Someone on Phone Line in English. There I judged His ignorance.
I have informed to MCC Official regarding this Trash Problem and He told me that He will take care of it.
I have requested Mr Bharath Raj from Vijaya Vahini Paper to Publish this Beauty of Mini Vidhana Soudha,so that Citizens of Karnataka will get Amazed.
Another highly Surprising matter is BJP Headman Mr. Monappa Bhandary has His Law Office inside the Premises along with many other Law Offices. In other matters He raises voice but He is quiet in Garbage Matter in front of His Office. There is a Rain Gutter in front of His Office with full of Garbage,including plastic.
Another issue I wanted to bring to notice is Health Condition inside the Building. This Mini Soudha does not have Good Ventilation to Breath. Everyday Hundreds of Healthy and Unhealthy People gather there and breathing each others’ breath. Little Children are suffocating due to Low Ventilation. Smart City or ….City,public should decide.
Dear Mr. Alfie, this is another loop hole to rob Public Money. I was requested by a Control Room Policeman to look at the Plants between AB Circle till Pandeswar on the Divider. I did call Forest Dept.and got the answer: Contact MCC Office. I called MCC Office and the result was like Dog trying to Catch the Tail by going round and round. I kindly request You to Contact A good Social Worker to find out the Total Amount of Money Paid to Tanker Owners through RTI(Right To Information). This will expose the corruption between Tanker Operator and MCC Office.
First Joke: Every Year Forrest Dept. is planting Plants between Baithurli(Kudupu) through Neermarga to Volachil on the roadside. At least past SIX Years I have been watching the Drama of the Forrest Dept. When I called about watering the Plants to Authority in this matter, very next day a tanker will show up. If not it will not show up. Half of the plant are already died.
Second Joke: They Plant the Saplings close to Rain Gutters by the Contractor. Just before Rain Season,PWD Authorities give a JCB Contractor to dig the Gutters and prepare for Rain water flow. This JCB Operator will Drive Up the Machine on top of the Saplings and destroy them. This will make way for Sapling Planting Contractor to replant the Saplings following year. This whole operation is between Forest Dept. and Contractor as “You Scratch My Back and I will Scratch Yours”.
In the past six years not a single Plant is grown to six feet height. I request the Good Social worker to do an
investigation in this Matter. I kindly Request IT Dept. to investigate the Officials and Contractors of their Yearly Income above the Table and Under the Table. Also I request ACB to investigate this Corruption in the name of Envirornment.
If every tom and dick is conferred with the doctorate what about those who study hard for a number of years putting a lot of time and effort and spending in crores to get the doctorate? Is it not an insult for the deserving qualified people?
I was pretty surprised to see boys and girls cleaning the area near the Valencia park and leaving flower pots as beautification. But who will water these plants? No sooner they left the place looking neat and clean, people started to throw trash once again – what a pity and irresponsible behaviour. Instead of flower pots, they could have provided trash bins at various places so that people can dump their trash. Anyway, very good job and may God bless them all.
May I know her educational qualifications,?. A self claimed Matha or Goddess.it is shocking many highly qualified doctor,s , professional s are her devoties.

Stop giving free tickets to ex employee and their kin, give retirement to old staff who are generally unproductive in the industry, no free tickets to staff or politicians whatsoever. Discounted tickets may be a better option. Recover all dues from Modi for the foreign tours with interest. The airline will be debtfree in n o time..if these changea are made.
Yes. RAHUL should contest from Karnataka. Iva yaarva?
Poojary admires Modi.
400 for NDA.
Don’t make anything free. Free facilities very quickly get neglected by the governments. People use it as if they own those and misuse it. At the minimum nominal charges should be collected. But most important is that very strictly monitored
Thank God that Rickshaw was carrying only 7 children. Almost I guess most of the Rickshaws carry at least 12 children including one sitting next to driver. Some time back, after the accident at Ulaibettu, Traffic Police were making sudden rides near school gates to catch the Culprit Drivers. It was a show for a short time. Now no one cares. Public eyes will open only when major accident takes place with many deaths. My kind request with DCP Uma Prashanth and ACP Manjunath Shetty to start Random Traffic Rides near School Gates in the morning time to save the life of Innocent Children. Mrs Prashanth and Mr Shetty, God will Bless your Children when You care for other Little Children. Thanks to all Traffic Police, whom I Respect very much.
God bless trio. All the best.
Great to know Nuns taking this , certainly there will be help for the downtrodden to get justice

mumbai is delapidating. Some of the railway bridges on the Central and Western railway were built 40-60 years ago and they need to be replaced with new ones. Everyday accidents like these wait to happen.
Inefficiency is rewarded. Just read that the tenure of the Vice Chancellor of KSOU Mysore is extended up to May 31, 2019
CCTV cameras and any technology can never control or contain any crime, anywhere in the world including the most advanced country, the USA.
Here are a few safety tips:
What is really required for the people from the time one gets out from their home is to always remember: ONLY YOU CAN SAVE YOURSELF!
1, Do not wear gold jewelry – instead, wear dress jewelry – In India, people have the tendency to wear gold rings on any or all fingers and a couple of gold chains. and think it reflects how rich they are! Men are no exception too!
2, Do not carry all your Credit or Debit Cards or all your cash with you- instead, some draw cash for a week’s expense and just carry at the most 5 x Rs.100.- notes in your wallet or your handbag for your daily commute or for daily petty expenses.
3. Always walk facing the oncoming traffic and on the right side of the pavement and not on the kerb – and keep your bag slung across on your should with the handbag to your left side with traffic moving to the right.
4. Do not travel in those packed buses that are not regulated by the Transport Dept. for maximum passenger capacity- it only encourages thieves and sexual perverts.
5, Do not stay out after 7 pm to avoid drunkards, drug addicts, and criminals who hang out at these hours and later.
6. Cell phones or Smart Phones are very pricey and sell like hotcakes! Technology can unlock or hack any password protection when stolen. Do not carry your cell phone in your hand to show off the brand or the model, as most people of today’s age do. It’s not safe in the eyes of thieves.
7. If the law cannot control, contain, and stop the menace of crime – no one can!
I think the way in which Mr Hegde conveys something makes people take it lightly. But What he is telling is heavy stuff and true. And I do not see why it is controversial. It is a known and sworn fact that Indira married Feroze, a non-brahmin. His son Rajiv, is a non-brahmin/non-Hindu by religion (culturally a Hindu, no doubt). Sonia is Christian. How can Rahul claim to be a Brahmin? How can he have any Gothra? None of this is made up. How can this be controversial? what is questionable in the fact cited here? Controversial is the claim by Rahul that he is Janeudhari (who does not know how to wear it). Even if he wants to claim that he is Hindu by faith, why claim to be a brahmin – Is he not furthering brahminical parochialism?
Why the journalists are not saying anything about it but calling the truth as controversial?
If anyone wants to criticize what I said, welcome but please do explain what I said is noot a fact and why?
DNA is a technical test that cannot identify if one is Hindu, Christian, or Muslim.
Indian Politicians, in general, have nothing better to do than badmouthing one’s identity and character. It would have been better if they could reflect what their religion has taught them. Indians are first Indian and not BJP or Congress.
God is not Hindu, Christian, or Muslim – religion is a principle for practising mankind, and irrespective of which religion one follows, all religions only teach to love, care, and respect everything and everyone that God has created on this earth. We must all learn to live in love, peace, and harmony. Bad mouthing only results in hate.
This media should never carry such messages as news, as there is enough hate in India already.
The question was not about what religion Rahul is. But the question is about the claim that he is a Brahmin. He is Janeudhari. His Gothra is such and such. With that, he is referring to lineage and not faith, the Lineage he is claiming is a lie. If Rahul had said he is a Hindu, Christian or Muslim by faith, no one can and should question it and everyone has to respect it but here the question is faking his identity.

(2) WHO – Burden of disease from environmental noise – 2011:

At least 3 Yakshagana artistes have died within the last 4-5 years. This is the 2nd death of a Yakshagana artiste on stage during a performance within the last 4 -5 years.
In my humble opinion, as a lay person, these deaths may have occurred due to a combination of: heavily clad costumes not allowing any ventilation through the clothing; heavy painting of the facial skin not allowing sweating of the skin; exposure to very high decibel levels of the loudspeakers for almost 6 -9 hrs continuously during each performance; exposure to regular (at least 4 to 5 per hour)bursting of very high decibel fire-cracker bombs also for almost 6 – 9 hrs continuously during each performance; atmospheric heat (particularly between mid -Feb upto the onset of the monsoons in June) & high humidity levels; additional heat from high intensity stage lighting; fatigue from the increased numbers of performances (as compared to earlier periods of normality) ; fatigue from physical exertion during the performance; possible existent illnesses; lack of sleep.
Therefore, I feel these performances must be conducted only inside an AC’ed hall with controlled temp and decibel levels.
In the “modern” loudspeaker(LS) era, Yakshaganas can be heard upto 2 kms away – both the LS’s and the firecracker bombs. These bombs are so loud they can startle anybody and give someone a heart attack even at a distance of 40 ft away.

No EC like TN Seshan. The currents one’s are nothing but — of the political masters. Sad though.
I’m sure they are better than a Jumla Goberment run by the BJP. And you shouldn’t even be talking about development when BJP themselves have none to talk about except for the blaming of previous Governments right from JN to MMS.

Needless to say you will be disappointed again Fr Cedric. Relax. Sip some coffee. Take heart in the fact that the alternative is a 51 year old adolescent.
Mr Alfie, Look at the Garbage thrown on Roadside near Kelarai-Neermarga Junction which is Mayors’ Ward. Best Solid Waste Management going on that Spot. Solid waste is Re-cycled by Cattle in dozens.
1. Cows eat the Solid Waste thrown there along with Waste Food including a little bit of Plastic Too. (4 times I have removed Plastic from Poor Cows Mouth, struggling as Plastic stuck in between the teeth along with my worker’s help)
2 Recycling Result: After the process Cow gives Milk to Children to drink. Gives Cow Dung as fertilizer to Vegetable Plants.
Look at the garbage behind MCC Commercial Complex, Look at the garbage inside Mini Vidhana Soudha where many Attorneys have their offices including BJP Head Lawyer.
Another matter You should Publish as open Garbage Trucks Overload the Garbage and do not Cover. They spill part of it on the middle of the road while 2 wheeler follows them. Secondly, these Riders INHALE the foul smell and digest inside their Lungs. IS IT HEALTHY MATTER? Few times I have informed MCC Officials but it is like “Dog Chasing The Tail” Traffic Police are afraid to take action as it is MCC Matter and Corporators get involved.
My request: Media should Question Health Officials and Environmental Officials regarding this and publish the results.
It is sad to say that Mr.victor Banerjee did not comment on when Rajnath singh himself passed same comments in the parliament as Navjot singh passed his comments on terrorism.
Excellence is another name for St.Aloysius Institute of Education. Awesome programme…..
As per a report from a local english evening newspaper in Mysore. The Governor did not attend the convocation on March 5. Looks like a crowd was collected in the hall. Not a single graduate was there to collect the graduation certificate. The dean made the announcement and walked out.
“When KSOU Dean announced the list of students of Kannada, Hindi, English, Telugu and Urdu languages and asked them to get up, there was not a single student present which forced the Dean to walk away.”
read report in the following link:
Which party is chosen and elected is not the issue, the concern of every unbiased Indian citizen is to have sane and well-balanced personalities in each sector of governance and people’s acceptance and support.
Right now, for the past 4 years, all Indians, as well as foreigners around the Globe, hear of Indian politicians and the two parties squabbling on a daily basis, justifying who did what and who did not during their governance. One has to live in peace and harmony in the present. Squabbling and blame-gaming only amplifies hate and division, which does good only to those want India as a nation to be a third-world country of the sub-continent!
Most Indian citizens are fed up with all the bad mouthing and blame-game of all those appointed to run the country and of all the high scale Banking scams and Defence scams.
Demonetization to end Terrorism, the introduction of GST to end multiple taxations and to introduce higher taxes on chocolates to cement and everything in-between to 28%, Introduction of another card called AADHAR mandatory for transfer bottled gas subsidy to a consumer’s bank account and thereafter to a call to GIVE UP SUBSIDY and thereafter to link AADHAR to avail everything except to vote!
What every Indian need is good basic infrastructure and amenities, affordable living, affordable housing, good and affordable health care and Education to international standards, good and transparent regulations, availability of jobs, and sensible taxation – even in the USA, the GST is only 9 to 10% depending on the state including Chocolates and Cement and everything in-between.
Thanks for this useful write up. You have saved the careers of 1000s of students who would have unknowingly walked into this mess. I will not even dream of joining KSOU and will definitely tell me friends and well-wishers not to join KSOU. What is the minister for higher education and the Secretary Department of Education, Government of Karnataka doing. Please intervene and take action against the errant officials.
Why are the University authorities not responding? They should at least issue a clarification. It is a shame and reflects the total lack of accountability on the part of the KSOU officials.
Also, Kadri Kamba road has many “narrow lanes”, where residents do not have decent road approach even in the 21st century. “Landlords” refuse to leave even small piece of land to construct a decent road. Sick, old people are literally carried on chairs, stretchers, etc. when they are unwell, as any 4 wheeler or auto rickshaw can not enter these lanes.
Mr Alfie, there is a saying goes: Donkey Praises its own Tail.
Area Corporator is busy on Traffic Circles to promote ……… . He knows that “If you feed the Cow, You get the Milk”. So He is feeding …….. to get the cream.
This Corporator has created more problems then good to the public of the area.
For Example, City Police East Traffic requested Me to install Barricades near Karnataka Bank to avoid accidents. At their request, at My Cost, I Installed 6 Poles to stop vehicles driving through Small Lane where little Children and Senior Citizen walk. Instead of appreciating, he questioned Me in front of the Public inside the MCC Building, Saying” Ninna Ammerena Jagena alpa Kamba Padere”. He went on abusing Me until I was ready to smack Him on His Face.
Everywhere You drive, there is a chance of falling into the roadside gutter on Kambla Road. Look at the Car Wash Water flowing into the rain gutter in two places. There are Water wells close to this Gutter. Naturally, this Car Wash Water is sucked into Tankers through Pumps and Public are provided with this water. I have spoken to the Health Official and Environmental Official of the City. But it is like Spitting in the Air which falls on our face.
There is also daylight robbery of Street Lights… . I told about it to Engineer Devraj, Commissioner Nasir including Mayor. It is like pouring water on Bulls’ Back. Just drive on Kambla Road and Pinto Lane and look at the Street Lights being misused with Tax payers money.
You along with Mangalorean.com doing a great job for the Community pointing out problems and corruption. Please, I ask the Public to take serious action regarding this Street Light Robbery. Look on Arya Samaj Road too where a House Gate is lighted by Public Light.
Too sad. No one should go through such harassment.
Only Election promiss. Naleen Kumar was sleeping for last 5 years.
hope it Doesn’t take another 15-20 years to complete.
Very very sad. Condolences to the bereaved family
It is a shame that the university authorities are so indifferent. The irony is that these are teachers and with this attitude what is the image of KSOU. Will anyone enroll in these universities for any courses. I would tell all my contacts not to enroll in this university and that IGNOU would be the best option if anyone wants to pursue higher studies. Complete irresponsibility on the part of the authorities and this should be condemned
The Indian tradition of keeping your shoes outside is amazing, It will help to keep most of dirt outside and only few will remain to clean. Now, robotic vacuum cleaners have made cleaning much easier.
Very nice to see Both Congress and BJP of the district are working together on this. I wish and pray that at all leevls, the opposition and ruling party work hand in hand at least on the issues of common interest. For example, women’s representation in parliament.
very good decision
Maybe they need financial help
Better try to help her
Dear SP Nisha Madam,my kind request to you that Sand is coming from Adyar-Kannur area through Mangalore-Nanthoor- KPT Junction through Surathkal- through Udupi towards Koondapur. These Sand Lorries are travelling after 7 pm at the gap of 30 minutes each average. I have once contacted Dy.SP of Udupi regarding this and I hope He has taken action. Including this a Lorry driver threw empty Liquor Bottle to the road side in front of my Car. I stopped my vehicle and checked and name on bottles read Mysore Lancer. So that means He was drinking and driving too. Sad to notice that these trucks travel after Traffic Police leave the Nanthoor – KPT Junctions. There are few Kadri East Traffic Police are very strict but they cannot stop these Lorries in absence of ASI officers are present. This should be changed and given right to stop and check and take action. Or Drivers should be removed and sent to station for clarification and charged by inspectors. I am watching this misery everyday of my life, so also listening to the sad,difficult stories of Traffic Police East why they are handicapped to arrest. THE INVOLVEMENT OF CROOKED POLITICIANS are tying the hands of many honest and strict Policemen. Dear God please Help These Honest Police Officials and their Families. I Will Do.
Thank You Sir, finally some action is taken instead of Rs.100 fine. I was very saddened to see Vehicles parked under the “No Parking” Boards which are installed by Me at My cost for the kind request of Traffic Police. I am kindly requesting the new Commissioner of Police Mr. Sanjive Patil and DCP Mr. Manjunath and DCP Mrs.Uma to get tough with Multiple Stories Building owners to clear their Vehicle storage areas which are used for commercial purposes. Just look at near Sony Building near Tandoor Bar on Jail Road. Building Parking is rented for commercial purpose and vehicles along with Bar customers block the road after 7 pm. Plus large Luxury Bus belongs to SRS Travels Parks blocking road. Under Law no Bus are allowed on this road and this bus is there everyday without fear even after Traffic Police Warning. Take a look at City Hospital area and take strict action. At the request of Kadri Traffic Inspector Mr.Suresh, I have Installed 4 (four) ‘No Parking’ Boards. Today there is only one board left standing and 3 are missing. MCC Contractor hands are in this operation along with Politician. I request all non vehicle People who walk on road to call Commissioner of Police on Call in day and request the need. Traffic Police do their best if Public Supports them like I do. They have only 2 Eyes-2 Hands-2 Legs like Public and they need Help of extra Eyes,Hands and Legs. So Please Help.
Request to dear honourable governor of govt of karnataka. Kind look on this issue.and please resolve this issue . The students of ksou needs justice. Lakhs of students were completed course in the academic year 2015-2018. But what it is derecognision. Its not a deemed to be university. Its govt university. If the govt is not leading at the proper administration then it is voilation public interest. If the students of ksou doesn’t seek the justice then govt or ugc should permanently cancell the ugc recognition. On that year lakhs of ksou students who knows to the politically motivating upcoming years….
Request to the Honorable Governor of Karnataka and the Education Secretary Govt. of Karnataka, kindly look in this matter and help the thousands of students whose career is in trouble because of the indifference of the officials.
How long before our Kumaranna announces one 30×40 BDA site for this soldier?
Every politician has to be insincere from time time time in order to survive in politics. But this Yeddy is not only insincere, he is also an outright and incompetent fool. Time and again he proves that he is just not fit to lead a state party. He is an embarrassment to every citizen of our state. For that matter I consider Siddaramaiah and appa-maga or even DKS for that matter to be much cleverer in our political system. At least they do know when to keep their mouths shut.
Up until the recent botched horse-trading, Yeddy’s stupidity was confined to the state and national-level politics but with this air-strike comment he has truly elevated himself to the international level. Buffoonery, nothing else.
Perhaps the next time Modi retaliates terror-group aggressions in the Kashmir region, perhaps he should select one F-16 in Kamikaze mode, with Yeddy tied to the front, targeted to one of those terrorist base camps, effectively nailing two birds in one connie.
The sad part is once Yeddy leaves the scene that will make room for another clown with his Rayanna Brigade. As I said earlier, BJP in Karnataka will be in shambolic disarray until these old f*rts disappear from public life.
Do you know how many years it would take to complete footpath on Sturrock Road?
Navayuga Company was blessed by Sonia Gandhi because of YSR Reddy the former CM of AP. Navayuga is under loss after Sonia Gandhi lost 2014 election. Best thing now is Adanis should take over Navayuga itself to complete the flyovers.
Thank you very much for your appreciation.
Pls give me your cell number.
Mine is 8692994897
The flyover is a good 1 metre shorter than the normal required 5.5 metre. Is anything going to be done about this? Or we expect some more mishaps of high vehicles?
With all due respect, Mr. J.R. Lobo has been a very attentive
and responsible person in authority during his tenure in MCC.
Most, if not all, will vouch for what improvements he has brought
about to infrastructure and amenities in the city and districts of
My personal opinion is that, Mr. J,R, Lobo has the right to ignore
all that is said against him, just as those who do nothing and
speak evil of others, have the right to criticize. People of all walks
of life in the city of Mangalore should unite and be united and make
Mangalore a clean city not only in environment but in mindset too.
This problem of any and every type of vehicle from a non-refrigerated truck to a moped
transporting/selling fish should be brought to the attention of the local Fisheries Dept,
(not that they are not aware of it) so that they can come up with some tough regulations
in storing Fish on the docks, transporting Fish for local or export, and retailing Fish door to
door. These regulations must then be legalized into a law, and the law must be first
implemented at the docks (the source), where fish is brought in. The Fisheries Dept.
should then be held responsible for ice water dripping from fish loaded trucks, tempos,
and two wheelers. The high income generated from the wholesale and retail of fish should
compel such traders to adhere to proper and hygienic handling and storage of fresh fish and
in ensuring clean environment and the foul smelling fish water, that is truly a nuisance in
Udupi and in Mangalore.
Why bring in the Police? The mentality and mind set of the locals must first change to
bring about a change.
Beautiful Birds. I wish I had paid more attention during my days there! Or did they just arrive for achche din?
I just applied for transcripts for MSc course I completed in year 2004, after following up for 2 months got to know how to and where to apply and application was received at KSOU on Aug 24 2018 and till date no update. Tried contacting them by all means but of no use. Their so called concerned person has blocked my number.
What is the duty of the PRO?. Sometimes students are told to visit the university. Imagine students from far off place and women have to make this journey only to be told by the staff that the certificates were sent and returned and that they need to produce the ID card of the student and other flimsy reasons. None of the higher officials are available. There needs to be accountability or otherwise is best the government shuts down KSOU and the students migrated to IGNOU.
So Mr Khandre, what did you want him to wash? Pappu ka sar?
Superb article from Donald.
Good luck and wishing you further success.

With due respect to, The Catholic Sabha members and the Bishop in their speeches emphasize that local men should not go abroad for lucrative jobs, and instead be in business locally and look after their parents, but certainly they know how much it costs to rent or own a small shop in Udupi or Mangalore and that the Mother of Sorrows Church owned Udupi Super Bazaar shops that generate a very good monthly, are rented out cheaply to 95% non-Christians. Moreover, what about the large donations given to the Church by these Gulf-based Catholics of Udupi and Mangalore! Nothing is mentioned by the Bishop on this subject.
Perhaps, the Builder and Promoter, Mr. Jerry Dias, would be able to inform that to rent a shop in Udupi costs nothing less than Rs.10,000.- to Rs.20,000.- per month and to own a shop costs nothing less than 35Lakhs to 50 Lakhs minimum in Udupi or Mangalore. If a local Catholic who has this kind of money, then he need not open a business or work in the Gulf to look after his own family or his parents. He could instead live on a good interest income of 8% per annum generated by keeping his money in Fixed Deposits.
Banks charge between 8.5 – 9.5% interest on loans and this is simply a trap that one will never be able to get out off with any business. Ask any businessman in Udupi or Mangalore and they can tell the Bishop how many hours and how much effort one has to put to run a business in Udupi or Mangalore. and just how much they earn end of the day and just how they profit after deducting all the utility bills, and staff salaries, and unbelievable taxes
The Churches earn 100% profit without any cash investment from the weekly Tithes, yearly KAIDO, and large donations coming from gulf based Catholics.
People do not have enough spending money in Udupi and Mangalore taking into consideration their monthly income, and the salaries in Udupi and Mangalore for 95% of jobs in shops and supermarkets do not pay much. Only 10% working in Banks, Udupi Municipality or other Government offices and the Insurance companies earn well.
Udupi, in general, has a very poor economy and market because of the small population and lack of industries and job opportunities. The Bejapuris labourers are instead doing very well, earning a daily wage of Rs.450 to Rs.700.- per day cash upfront, with little overheads and expenses and no taxes paid!
Wish the couple all th very best in their life.
I don’t see any opposition leaders in the photos. Not sure if they were not called ‘properly’ or they chose to ignore. If either of these was true, it is sad. Of course whom to be invited for the wedding is prerogative of the marrying couple. But we mangaloreans always used to raise above politics in any personal functions, any emergency situations or any thing related to religion or cultural things. Sad that such practices are done away with.
It is appaling that the construction contractors are still following the prctice of not clearing the debris. Instad of cleaning what cntractors left, influential and experienced among the RKM volunteers can find out who the contractor was. Name them, Shame them and ask them to clear the debris. If they still don’t clear their mess, the MCC should clean it and collect the clearance charges from them. If they fail to give fine, those contractos should be banned from any contract with MCC. This should be a strict policy. Without such harsh measures, Mangaluru will not remain clean no matter how much RKM does
One more thing: If public throw the garbage, they also should be cught and puniched well. Having said that I feel ashamed because Managlore is always considered as intellectual and inteeligent people. But looking at the mess we create, I seriously doubt it.
My only point is – why not these actions were initiated in the last 5 years – and why now – just before the polls? This is a natural reaction to anything the ruling part does (any party IN RULING). The Govt which doesnot care for its people for the full term, what can they do at the fag end. same goes for any party. we are normal citizens of INDIA and have never even voted for any party. We lived out of India for over 40 years. So our thoughts are not corrupt.

Get bail, steal/Rob chain, get bail, steal/rob chain.. how this chain will be broken?
This is in response to the comment posted by Francis Lobo who states that the author had missed to highlight that the laborers are not wearing any protective gear, like gloves, shoes etc. To clarify on this statement – Antony waste Handling cell does provide shoes, gloves etc, but it is the laborers who are reluctant to wear them- since they complain that wearing shoes get their feet warm and sweaty, gloves are hassles to remove now and then etc etc
So whose fault is it? Laborers need to adhere to the safety rules but they are totally violating it.
Politics doesnt want a integrity person
This is India of 21st Century. Unless the present generation disappears and new one takes over the reigns with integrity, we will never see the sun rising. ALL GOOD men and women will be forced out. Quite sad.
So why was SP Laxman Nimbargi transferred with immediate effect? He worked with integrity, says the report
The author sees only the unhygienic way of loading of garbage bins. But misses seeing that the laborers who are working there are not wearing any safety equipment. They do not have shoes, Gloves. proper headgear, face masks or inhalers and they stay in the accommodation provided by the waste handlers which does not have hygienic facilities. Apart from this the people also do not know how to dumps garbage. Some people just throw the garbage on the roadside without proper packing or dump into bins.The laborers have to physically lift this material which may be 3- 4 days old and put inside the trucks.
Let us first make sensitive the people who are working there and people who are throwing the garbage to do it properly with tools and tackles and also proper packing. The spillage on the road is an issue which can be cleaned. But then if the person gets infected or gets a disease it takes a longer time to cure and also expensive
Well deserved. Must be a ghattadha driver.. would have shown their typical attitude.
Those pelting stones should be booked for vandalism of Government property and made to pay for the repair of the bus.
Most of the Public Services and Utilities in India are not regulated and the public are not informed or educated on civic subjects, nor are the favoured Contractors specific educated or experienced or equipped.
Garbage and Sewerage disposal is a serious civic concern of any country. Modern technology and modern living has quadrupled the garbage- wet or dry – due to prepared and packaged food and food packaging disposables. However, disposal management still lacks technology and infrastructure in India. Just purchasing a few garbage trucks and employing a few labourers does not call for a complete safe and hygienic garbage collection and disposal system.
The State Government of Karnataka must look after it’s own state and it’s population and it’s infrastructure and amenities to a very high standard instead of bickering of who will govern and control and loot the public and the state, and which political party is better than the other.
Examples and Education are of primary importance. Whilst the Indian government is spending millions of billions of Rupees taken from Indians in all forms of taxes to purchase the latest and costly hi-tech arms and armaments, that is not put to use in any form – peace or war, so should the people in authority in Karnataka State = source that technology and that equipment from those countries to manage better Garbage Collection and Disposal.
The Municipality is quick levying a charge for Garbage disposal and collection but are not providing thickness approved plastic bags for garbage disposal to every household, and most household simply empty their wt garbage in a small plastic bin, that in turn is emptied in a big bin in a building and that in turn in dumped in a small open truck by the Garbage Contractor employees. This leads to stray cats, dogs, and rodents to these garbage bins and the foul smell and the disease it can spread.
ALL PEOPLE AND ONLY PEOPLE MUST BE THE CHANGE AND AS WELL EDUCATE EACH OTHER, AND THE MUNICIPALITY EMPLOYEES MUST STAY FOCUSSED ON THIS SUBJECT AND SUPERVISE PROPER MANAGEMENT
Dear Pinto Family.
Sorry to hear the sad demise of a great lawyer and giving advise to the needy. I know him since late 1960s.
Our heartfelt condolences to the entire family members. May the almighty God give strength to bear the loss. May his soul Rest in peace.

What a magnificent place of collection of antiques and artifacts that have been carefully collected and displayed for the benefit of the public. Excellent location that will attract hundreds of visitors every day in addition to the visit to the nearby College Chapel, another place of unique paintings that have a proud display of history.
All the students of St. Aloysius will be thrilled with two master pieces of Art and History that will enable the students to bring more visitors to their Campus and make the place more prominent than ever before. We shall certainly be there without fail on our next visit, and see how we can add some more items of antiquity as a small token of our contribution.
The Jesuits know the art of “Perfection”, and it begins from the spectrum of Education, Music, Sports and most importantly the selfless nature in performing what is good and beneficial for everybody. Mangalore therefore has been enriched with so many talents that has benefited the Society as a whole to a great extent.
The College Chapel with some of the finest paintings from Bro Moscheni have remained safe and fresh for so long, because the place has been well maintained and preserved with utmost care. We took a tour of the Camp this year, and we were highly impressed with all the new developments that relate to not only Education but also various other short term and long term plans.
The newly created Museum is certainly an added attraction. We were impressed with the wide variety of collections and antiques, and now from the recent photographs we even witness lot more happenings than what we had witnessed just a few months ago. The place needs further help and support, and we hope to spend much more of our vacation time at the College Museum next time. Thank you, Fr. Dion Vaz, Fr Leo and even Kavita, and many others, for all your new initiatives that will bring greater glory and fame for Mangalore.
Good the f***er will languish there.
Nice and very well explained about term insurance, I am looking to have a term insurance plan, and this looks to be very useful fo me
St. Aloysius College, in addition to the fine Educational expansion programs, is also proud to display their newly established Museum in a close vicinity of the famous College Chapel.
Both these sites will become ever increasingly important for tourists while visiting Mangalore as tourists.
The Museum is vast and specious. It treasures various antiques and collections that have great deal of history attached, and worth publicity so that more and more visitors can come to Mangalore and find their place of interest as St. Aloysius.
We have lot more to offer to this valuable Museum, and hope to spend more time at St. Aloysius during our next visit to Mangalore.
Just arresting would be useless. Their car permits should be cancelled and their license and badge withdrawn. That would be the most fitting action from the authorities. Rowdyism should be dealt with a heavy hand.
Carrie Underwood is my favourite US singer. She is young, beautiful and charming female in her 30s. Her voice takes me away from all troubles of this world so I start enjoy my life and listen songs created by her. Now she is on a Cry Pretty 360 Tour started in May of 2019. The concerts scheduled for this year, up to the 31st of October. Ticket prices are moderate and available for all men and women with different income. If you are a country music lover as me, then you must visit at least one Carrie’s concert. All tour dates are available at the carrieunderwoodtour. Visit the website and make yourself familiar with all powerful Carrie Underwood concerts in 2019!
The injustice to the Christian community other than kerala is quite evident from many years!! Even where there is a chance to nominate a Christian the Congress party hv always gone back.
Even the Minorities Directorate and KMDC has no Christian employees!!
In politics the fear of losing votes is the only way to get our share of things !!
Senator Kamala Harris has an impressive record as a prosecutor, a district attorney and Attorney General in California. Her heritage should not be doubted. Her mother hailed from Tamil Nadu in South India and her father was Jamaican. To question these undeniable facts amounts to mischief mongering with intent to denigrate.
More importantly, Senator Harris is an intelligent, personable, articulate, vibrant and electable candidate. Her first town hall performance in Iowa, chaired by Jake Tapper of CNN was very well received by the audience and by those who watched her on TV. She has many challenges ahead, one of which should NOT be the fact that she classifies herself as black in a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-religious country of over 300 million “immigrants” – the U.S.A.
From Carmelite history of 400 years in India is of Holiness, Love of God and neighbour - Rev Dr Saverio Cannistraon
400 years of Carmelite dedication in India was filled with prayers, sacrifices, charities as well as virtues that have brought new awakenings as to how and what Missionaries can offer to India, a nation of religious history that has created Busshism, Jainism, Hinduism, Islam, Christianity as well as Judaism.
Carmelites have shown to this Nation how we can respect each faith and live side by side with dignity and respect for each other.
The arrival of St. Thomas in India as an “uncrowned Ambassador” from Jesus Christ, followed by the arrival of St. Francis Xavier after 1500 years paved the way for variety of Missionary priests and nuns to the Indian sub-continent brought a new awareness in India as to how these foreign groups of Missionaries can create charitable Organizations by establishing schools, colleges, Universities, Hospitals, Orphanages and many other Institutes without indulging into any religious conversions. Carmelites showed to the Indian authorities during the Colonial era and even after the era of Independence that we all can live with peace and harmony and have our own freedom of choice towards our own individual faith.
Absolutely….the change can happen with us being the change agent
Presence of Timelgood Leaders in these times is as important as many other miracles. Bishop Peter Paul has proven to be a good Leader who follows the steps of Emiratus Bishop Aloysius. Under their joint leadership Mangalore will witness many more great things in the years to come.
Let us pray for their good health and happiness so that Mangalore will witness many more great things in future days. Timely rain and sufficient rain in India each year is as precious a gift alike many other gifts that India deserves in addition to peace and harmony.
New Shopping Arcades, new Cinemas, new Restaurants, new Parking Lots are all important features that need be included in the “Smart City” concept for Mangalore, but there are many more “essentials” that have to be introduced for Mangalore in order to enable the City to enjoy all the “Smart City” priorities. We need the City to be zoned properly where the Hospitals, Schools, Colleges, Libraries, Performing Art Centers, and also the Parks and Recreations to be given equal prominence. Roadside vendors also need prominence and importance, but these roadside displays of all handicrafts and ‘cottage industry’ products need be expose only few week ends so that people can walk across the display stands on family outings.
The City needs equal importance on cleanliness, frequent garbage collections and constant monitoring on general hygiene so that people are fully aware of the City laws. City has to focus on High Technology sectors that could bring more know-how with new Educational awareness and new plans to cope with future challenges. The City has to encourage inviting foreign dignitaries, including all the local expertise to be encouraged to visit the city periodically with series of lectures and public audiences with new ideas to appear and all possibilities for future establishment.
The “Smart City” concept is a group effort of all private and public involvements with independent groups to monitor periodically the progress achieved thru various new old and new developments. The “Smart City” is a “big picture” concept that should be viewed with a patriotic attitude because it will transform the ever-growing Town into a modern city with prospects to change and benefit all facets of Social life, Economic life, Educational life where Society will continue to grow and prosper in line with other “Smart Cities” of India.
Great joy to learn so many landmarks of Sports, Culture, Economy and much more are going to take place at St. Aloysius College this year under the able leadership of Rev. Fr. Dion Vas as well as Rev. Fr. Pravin Martis. All these events are worth following and worth supporting. Please keep us informed on all of these delightful events so that many of the old students can also plan to visit Mangalore during the appropriate time and participate in the happy occasion.
Excellent coverage from m.com.
Wishing every success.

What is even more appropriate is to re-name the Matsyagandha Express in his honour, as there does not appear to be any direct connection between George Fernandes and Mangalore airport.
But then again I am torn -Matsyagandha is the most appropriate name for that train.
May be, like someone else suggested, Mangalore junction could be named after him as a compromise.
This is indeed a historic event for the Christians and the Moslems of the world. The spirit of “Internationalism” that has always been practiced by the Citizens of U.A.E. has now come into reality. The visit of His Holiness, Pope Francis to U.A.E. has paved the way for a new era of justice and equality amongst all the religions of the world, particularly the Christians as well as the Moslems.
The leaders of U.A.E. have brought a new awareness to the people of the region that we are all children of one God, and we all can live in peace and harmony for today, tomorrow and always in our life.
There is so much to be enjoyed in life, and therefore may this Holy visit of Pope Francis bring a new climate of peace and reconciliation to the world at large, and bring greater happiness to mankind.
Humanity and brotherhood supersedes religion here. Good for a peaceful co-existence and spreading of love and care. Good move by the Sheikhs of UAE and Papa Francisco.
From RIP George Fernandes! If Bejai New Rd was His Birth Place, Bejai Cemetery is His Eternal Resting Place!on
Here is a tid-bit. George Fernandes was also connected to Cascia High School. George was nephew of founder of this school. Don’t know if George Fernandes had any role in its administration, though.
I agree with Siva.
George needs to be honoured.
Mangalore Railway station may be named after him for his contribution of Konkan Railway.
I wonder why this is not a rarest of rare cases. Even a wild animal which has no sense of right or wrong kills 20 people, we would kill it. But this intelligent creature knowing what is right and wrong had chosen to kill after enjoying them has to be one of the worst things to be born on this earth and deserves only capital punishment. Anything else would be dangerous and taxing for the society.
If politicians and elected public representatives violate the laws and put their banners, without any shame, how the public will respect Laws? Those who make the rules only break the rules. Job Yatha Raja Tatha Praja.
The Constitution is a single most important document for any country to possess, preserve and honor in order to cherish our individual as well as group rights. The Constitution will enable all of us to respect the spirit and meaning of the document that forefathers had painfully prepared for the benefit of all the citizens. In a country such as India where we have so many cultures, religions, languages, and even colors, a Constitution is indeed a sacred document that will protect all our legitimate rights and interests so that each one of us safeguard our individual and group rights.
India is also surrounded by other nations such as China, Pakistan and Bangla Desh who also are obliged to understand our existing rights and privileges and safeguard our neighborly obligations for a smooth and harmonious relations with each other.
W are glad to note that St. Aloysius College is taking all the pains and efforts in familiarizing all the young students our legitimate rights as Citizens of India, and how we need to treat each other in good times and tough times. Jai Hind.
Congratultions. Good luck for yr future.
It looks like they all have political connections. Police should not care and should take appropriate action without any delay and that should provide a signal that irrespective of the political hue they belong to they will be punished.
Mangaluru should be proud of its son who contributed to the nation in multiple ways. Being born in Managluru but becoming a popular and strong trade union leader in Bombay of yesteryears –where outsiders, particularly the south Indians were not liked, — is a great achievement. And from there, going to Muzzapur, Bihar and creating a strong supporter base, getting rejected from a far off place which was neither a birthplace nor a place where he developed trade union leadership is not something ordinary mortals can achieve, it requires special capabilities, very special ones! To contest an election sitting in jail with the highest margin in the country, the record of which was not broken speaks of the man that George Fernandes. As a defence minister, he went to Siachen a record 18 times to be with the Soldiers and show them we are with them. He was a true son of Baharthmata. His association with the BJP leaders is very difficult to comprehend. In fact, if my memory serves me right and reasoning is right, he may be one of the reasons for the existence of BJP. After Janasangh was dissolved while forming the Janata party, its erstwhile leaders continued association with RSS. If I remember right, George Fernandes was one of those who objected the Janata leaders continuing to maintain their association with RSS which he called ‘Dual Membership’. The leaders who did not want to disassociate with RSS, formed their own party, BJP. The fact that George Fernandes not only continued the friendship with those leaders, but stitched the alliance of his party (Samata party) with BJP to form the NDA and ultimately becoming its convener, yet retaining all his socialist ideas and ideology. If that is not political ingenuity of highest order, what is!
And even though he was away from his birthplace he played a very significant role in moving forward the Konkan Railway project which languished for more than a century after conception. I doubt this project would ever have seen light if not for him. Of course, in my opinion, the coastal region is not using this Railway line to its potential and nor did we give respect to Geoge Fernandes to the extent that we should have given. That is what I want to point out. I think it is time that we Mangalureans give him proper recognition – a landmark, a beautiful and useful memorial, airport name, prominent street name, or any other suitable idea. For this, all people should come together irrespective of party, religion, language or any other affiliation as here is a son of Mangalore who became an institution by himself. We are, we should be proud and show that we are proud of him. oh, by the way, this is not for him as that great soul is Resting In Peace. This is for us and our future generations of Mangaluru.
Congratulations to Shariq for his vigilance as a citizen. To someone who has not dealt with the govt. ,it may seem as if Shariq has progressed so far with ease but only he knows how many difficulties he has had to face. Thanks to Rajendra Kumar for publicizing Shariq efforts. I think the author wished to convey that RTI , other laws and rules are “tools”(not “weapons”) in the hands of the citizen.
It is a joy to learn that the India Social Forum celebrated the India Republic Day in Riyadh in the presence of various dignitaries. Saudi Arabia has always cherished the close friendship with India because both countries have strived together for peace and prosperity. Tens of thousands of Indians have given their best of loyal work to Saudi Arabia and have never interfered with the local politics.
Today, India is also proving to be a valued customer of Saudi Arabia because India has a great deal of hydrocarbons to buy from Saudi Arabia. May the close relations between India and Saudi Arabia continue to prevail all the time so that both the nations may continue to live with mutual friendship and solidarity and the people of India and Saudi Arabia continue to live with peace and happiness.
From Bevy of Citizens Gather to Support 'The Travel Hub in Mluru ' Concept by Er Aloysius Albuquerqueon
It’s a Great Coming Together of Passionate Professional Lovers of MANGALURU. Er. Loy Albuquerque Must Be Commended For This Proactive Initiative. TRAVEL HUB is indeed a Very Helpful Convenient Proposition. Now that the Basic Discussion is Over, We Must Make The District Administration Take Over.
Appreciate The Proactive Journalist Dear Alfie & mangalorean.com for Being with us & Conveying To The WORLD.
Come Let’s Do it. JAI HO
Your dear leader Yeddy can not even arrange for a piss up in a brewery, let alone toppling the coalition.
Until he retires from the state politics, Karnataka BJP will always remain the bridesmaid, never the bride.
There is a fundamental flaw in Donald Trump’s idea that only a “very strong form of physical barrier” will stop criminals, drugs, gangs and human trafficking. All the information hitherto available to the intelligence agencies and those responsible for homeland security in the U.S.A. clearly shows that the main ports of entry are NOT at the southern border. However, the 45th POTUS has an obsessive, compulsive desire to build a wall in spite of all the facts to the contrary.And, he will use every possible way to do so. It is clear he does not want to be confused by the facts to build his “great, big, beautiful” wall.
From Christian Leaders Come Together To Appeal For Lok Sabha Seats For Christian Community In Karnatakaon
I strongly support this initiative. It’s high time we have a representation. I feel Ms. Margaret alva should also be considered. She is also a seasoned politician. I appeal the congress party to consider the above.
Best Wishes are extended to the Organizers of Pinnacle 2019 that will be held shortly in Kuwait. It takes a lot of hands and lot of efforts to make any performance possible on the stage, especially in the Persian Gulf region because each one is actively involved with their respective professions in their daily pursuit of life.
It is noteworthy that the ultimate goal of a performance such as this is intended for an Orphanage in India. Every Kuwaiti Dinar earned from an effort such as this is therefore well spent for a good cause, and all the people striving for a good cause will be abundantly blessed. Keep up the good work.

Late Dr. Venkat Rao was one of the original pioneers of Fr Muller’s Charitable Institution. He was a successor to Dr. Lorsab and Dr Mathews and changed the entire outlook of Fr. Muller’s with new technologies and new ideas. He was wholeheartedly supported by late Fr. Reginald Pinto and late Fr. Marian Fernandes. Dr. Venkat Rao brought a new name and fame for Fr. Mullers Hospital by attracting thousands of new patients who came to Fr. Mullers because of Dr. Venkat Rao.
We as a family had close association with Dr. Venkat Rao who was virtually our neighbor. He came to Fr. Mullers when he was a bachelor, and when he got married he brought additional fame to our neighborhood. Dr. Venkat Rao was a kind-hearted person, and he rendered free medical services to hundreds of patients that visited Fr Mullers Hospital as well as his home when they could not afford medical services.
We distinctly remember that when Mother Theresa first visited Fr. Mullers Leprosy Asylum several decades ago, Dr. Venkat Rao was there to first meet Saint Mother Theresa and greet her.
We are so pleased that in the name of late Dr. Venkat Rao many worthy ideas being generated. This is an excellent idea, and late Dr. Venkat Rao deserves all the worldly recognitions.
Really a sad tragedy. But very limited information is available except that he died of cardiac arrest. Did he have any previous ailments. Did he meet with an accident. More information would help other trekkers who are attempting the chadar trek. Any one having more details about this incident please do share.
“More Heart into those Hands” said St Camillus our Founder and Patron of the Sick.
Dear Mr. Alfie D’souza & Mangalorean.com team. We the Camillians and the Staff who served with us till date feel greatly recognised and appreciated by Fr Nelson and Sandesha Team.
The Govt project supported our mission for 5yrs. In the rest of the years God the Father extended His hands through many in Mangalore and all throughout the World.
If we are able to make it a Big LOVE HOME it’s through the Support and Blessings of Mangalore Catholic Diocese, Mr Eugine Rent, the Donor of the land, Bethany Sisters who opened the doors of their institution for our Children to study and persons like Dr Ravi Vaswani, former Registrar of Yenepoya University, Dr Vishal Amin, Prof Yenepoya University, Dr Caroline D’souza, Psychiatry medicine, Dr Daisy, ART, Wenlock Hospital, well wishers and Benefactors.
We keep you close in our hearts and pray for you. The words of Jesus from the crucifix said to St Camillus ecco in our hearts, “It’s not your work but Mine”.

This shut down of the federal government is the longest in U.S. history. President Donald Trump owns this shut down. In his own words at a meeting in the Oval Office with Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, the President said that he is proud to own this shut down. Instead of building a wall that was supposed to be paid for by the Mexican government, a non-starter from day 1, 800,000 Americans are unpaid for 32 days for a wall that’s not going to be built and that the majority of Americans do not want. The President’s intransigence is having grave consequences for the unpaid Americans and their families, and will have a deleterious effect on the U.S. economy.
The murder of the Washington Post columnist and Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey was a heinous crime that merits a thorough international, independent, transparent investigation. The Saudi government’s lies, changing stories and crude attempts to cover up this murder should not be unpunished. Justice must be done and perceived to be done. The current investigation in Saudi Arabia is a sham to cover up the name of the principal perpetrator of the crime, i.e. the person at the highest level of the Saudi government who ordered the killing.
Thank you for the beautiful tour and sharing your wonderful experience.
Loved this?? I believe through Mary Peace will come, she is such a Good Mother????
Just a drama, no action will be taken. If MCC had the guts they shud have removed the cutouts etc with police protection just as they do to roadside vendors.
Tantri Kantaravru Rajeeveru’s purification ritual after two women visited the Sabarimala shrine, in defiance of the Supreme Court’s directive that allowed all women entry into the shrine, reflects insubordination and disrespect for the rule of law. Frankly, the restrictions on the entry of women are absurd, particularly so at the end of the second decade of the 21st century. It is high time these outdated rituals are discarded. The Almighty does not discriminate. Why should his self appointed representatives on earth be allowed to do so?
I am disappointed by the assertion of some opposition leaders that their sole objective is to oust the Modi government Instead,the opposition should unite and agree on a common alternative set of policies to take the country forward, restore secular democracy, decrease the alarming gap between the rich and the poor, reduce unemployment and assist the middle class, the working class, the oppressed and the poor to better their lives. and live in communal harmony.
I am not a Narendra Modi fan and I do not support his communal, divisive, intolerant and majoritarian policies. I do not like his remorselessly aggressive attacks on the opposition and his suffocating self aggrandizement. Moreover, I am disturbed by his government’s interference with institutions that should be autonomous like the CBI and the RBI. However, I am disappointed by the assertion of some opposition leaders that their sole objective is to oust the Modi government. Instead,the opposition should unite and agree on a common alternative set of policies to take the country forward, restore secular democracy, reduce unemployment and assist the middle class, the working class, the oppressed and the poor to better their lives.

Amazing feats of heroism and sheer expertise/stellar confidence are unshakeable and will remain as such. ‘Herculean’ is sometimes a mild word for such an accomplishment where so many lives were in obvious peril. Praise the Lord for guiding the expert pilot’s hands and filling him with the presence of mind, tranquility and sheer confidence he had to draw from. Believe in yourself are the operative words here. Ecstatic! Cheers!???
Cleanliness is next to Godliness is a clear saying that is fully applicable to a country such as India where the population is thriving all over our Cities, towns and villages. The daily garbage that is thrown all over the place without any concern is unbelievable. How much can a Municipality or a Punchayath render to the people while the budgets are limited and the relevant taxes collected are negligible. While people are conscious of the need for cleaner environments and cleaner sanitary procedures, the Government resources are indeed limited while the overall daily needs are enormous.
Compared to many Cities of India, the City of Mangalore deserves the timely praise because we are striving the utmost to keep our City clean and organized. Our trash is collected regularly and the place is kept clean and neat. We even noticed that the domestic garbage is even collected regularly with enough warning, and the neighborhood is awakened by the crew in uniform coming to collect domestic garbage.
Cleanliness throughout the city is improving every day, and our City fathers are more vigilant than many other cities of India. We are great believers that the “Smart City” concept does not merely relate to high technology and various costly and time consuming devices, but the daily cleanliness and upkeep of every corner of the city is of paramount importance. India has abundance of rich people who need to come forward voluntarily and help the City to maintain orderliness and clean environment. Let all our teachers and students in every Educational Institute come forward and teach the rest of the world the importance of clean environment. Let the pubic learn the substance of the benefit of cleaner city that will bring healthy atmosphere of reminder to each and everyone that cleanliness helps to bring healthier outlook to the entire city as a whole. This is the best time Mangalore should wake up and become a role model to the rest of India.
Reminds me of Mayavati’s self-aggrondizement on her birthdays when she was the chief minister. 25 years service is definitely great. But do you need a function at this scale? Unless the person has an ambition to enter politics, you won’t have this scale of celebrations. But this gentleman denies any political ambition. So the money could have spent more meanigfully.
Well this was actually the work of government to be honest. Why is our Karnataka govt still mum over such a serious issue. Kerala Govt has way back done it’s best to save Expatriates interest. Where as Karnataka govt needs to understand the importance of NRIs. Well initiation from Indian Social Forum. As well as that Media is the main tool to make this issue get some credibility.
Expats throughout the Persian Gulf region have always played an important role in so many daily functions of their respective professions. Whether they are Doctors or Engineers, or whether they are Accountants or Secretaries, all of them or most of them come to the Gulf region with a distinct purpose and give their very best of dedication to the profession they belong to. A large portion of the expatriates leave their families behind to take care of their daily needs which also include their children education. Living in foreign countries throughout the contractual term is tough.
Many expat professions also include many domestic jobs such as cooks, butlers, as well as many skills such as Nurses, Carpenters, Waiters and even gardeners and drivers who render a loyal service for the entire duration of their contract.
Everything in this world of profession is a “give and take” service that serves a mutually beneficial service. It’s a service that is mutual and filled with loyalty and dignity. India is no doubt one of the best country that has proven to be one of the best nation that has been known as the trustworthy country for development of reliable human capital that will always continue to provide the best of human labor to one and all that deserve such service. May God bless them all.
At this point in time, there is no viable alternative for Modi ji in the country.
What is the Administration doing? What a shame!!
Walking! This ancient and time tested form of activity, is what keeps our body functioning well,with all the 7 vital parts such as the brain, the eyes,lungs, heart,stomach, the kidneys, and our limbs in good shape, along with a good look at God’s creation, the amazing sunrise and the life that it springs into all that dwells in the sky, on the earth,below the earth, and in the sea, or the awesome sunset!
Those who do not find a early morning walk convenient, should for an evening walk on the beach or in the park.
Always carry drinking water in a half litre shoulder strap pvc/aluminium bottle that are commercially available, and stay hydrated, as Mangalore or South India is hot and humid.
Walking at a good steady pace for an approx. up and down distance of 5 to a max of 7km is the most ideal workout one would require to keep the body healthy and strong. It’s free from timings, free from special footwear, free from special clothing, and most of all it’s FREE OF COST!

Strange. Why did she wait till the wedding was over? I am sure everyone has the same question
I see that week after week, so much work is done. yet so much remains which means 2 things. 1. A lot of people are still irresponsible. It pains that educate cultured people of Mangaluru have still not embrace cleanliness. 2. Mangaluru corporation is not doing its duty incerely.
Good that commisioner is now involved and is talking about cooperation.
Here are a few humble suggestions (Nothing new and some of these may be already in place and may be I don’t know)
1. Every week, there should be one team exclusively doing survey along with Mangaluru corporation officials (only those who are enthusiastic) and identify all areas of Mangaluru that needs to be cleaned. If corporators also can take part without party banners and work with citizens, this survey becomes easy.
2. Have a dedicated website for this and let people give suggestions; post photos. IT companies in and around Mangaluru can take up this task of creating and maintaing a dedicated website as part of their CSR.
3. A committee of officials, volunteers, Swamis of RK Ashram can decide which one to be taken by Sunday Swatchata Drive, what should Corporation do (For example, installing and cleaning trash bins in the public places). Mangaluru MP Nalin Kumar Kateel and Mangaluru MLAs could contribute and plan to meaningfully contribute to this by developing and implementing plans using their development funds.
Mangalore has so many highly intelligent individuals; so many engineering and other colleges with some professors teaching public health; and many more intellectuals. They should come forward (may be on a active basis or by means of suggestions on the website).
4. Finally a suggestion for Mangalorean or anyone else publishes these photos. You are doing a great job. It would be really good if you can please publish ‘before’ and ‘after’ side by side or next to each other and also it would be great to print the location information next to the picture.
Voters cannot be said to have learned any lessons and therefore wisened if they keep alternately choosing between the black pot(miscellaneous brands), the black pan(miscellaneous brands) and the fire (there being no other choice;NOTA not being a person).
Voters have to take the initiative to educate themselves so that they can choose wisely, instead of just gambling (like purchasing a “lottery” and hoping to win) their lives away by choosing between politicians and their parties which use different names but are essentially same/similar in character and which use “policies” which are carrying India toward disaster for the last 71 years.
For solutions to the problems we are facing, I recommend reading “Breaking free of Nehru – Let’s unleash India” by Sanjeev Sabhlok https://bfn.sabhlokcity.com/ (it is generous of him to have made it available for free download so that even those who cannot afford can read it).
For sometime, there was a progressive political party called “Loksatta” led by Dr. J.P.Narayan but around 2014 they have jumped off the political band wagon as they cannot compete with the “big-bucks political parties” and because in Dr. JP’s own words, “ Indians are still not ready for change”.
Essentially almost all Indians are/have been turned into “freeloaders , cripples dependent on the govt. to think for them and religious zombies” living off State funds & corrupt to the core and they wish for the status quo to continue .
If India does not reform (shunning socialism, communism and immediately delinking religion, tradition, culture from governance of the State) then India is soon going to go the way of :

It’s nice to see the RK missionaries, led by a missionary Swami clad in his missionary robes, conducting, with missionary zeal, the weekly/ monthly/annual/phased swacchata abhiyan as part of civil society contribution to the Swacch Bharat Mission(which in its earlier avatar, pre-2014, was named “total sanitation campaign” and “nirmal bharat abhiyan”). As is quite apparent, the previous names were totally uncatchy, unmissionary and unmarketable names not drawing people from around the world, film stars, sports-stars, captains and missionary-stars to crowd into the photo-frame.
I particularly like the Warli art and other art works on the walls of the city as a result of the “Shram-dan” by the missionaries from the RK ashram or is it math(they sure are good at it).
I cringe to see the able- Japanese citizen Kane sweeping the dusty and dirty roads of Mangal-uru; he now has first-hand experience of what one feels when one jumps from the (Ja)pan into the fire(quite literally, considering that the streets of Japan are what “cleanliness” and “hygiene” define).
Not being “intelligent” I request some “smart” people to clear my doubts :
(1) Doesn’t Shram-dhan mean “voluntary contribution of labour for a public cause”? Doesn’t “dhan” mean to donate and not take from one hand and give back only a little using the other?
(2) If above is so , then why is MRPL-ONGC(a company owned by the people of India) paying RK Mission to conduct these heavily photo-op’d and publicised swacchata abhiyans. Under its CSR scheme, MRPL has paid RK Mission: Rs.10 lakh 40 thousand to build bath cum toilet blocks in FY 2013-14; Rs. 14 lakh “financial assistance” for Swacch Mangaluru Abhiyan in FY 2015-16; Rs. 20 lakh(with a commitment of upto 50 lakh) for the SB mission jamboree in FY 2016-17;
Well for FY 18-19 we have no publicly available data. So MRPL has paid RK Mission Rs.44.4/- lacs between 2013-14 to 2017 years. (pls note that the RK missionaries are not the only beneficiaries of the MRPL CSR funds. Never mind that MRPL feels no CSR toward the people they have forcefully displaced from their homes and lands and have no “funds” to pay these people their rightful share).
(3) Was RK Mission conducting these heavily photo-op’d and publicised swacchata abhiyans prior to 2014? What caused the sudden love for the nation? The Nation wants to know!
(4) I cannot help wondering how after so many phased “swacchata abhiyans” the brooms – held by the posing missionary-stars, the captains, the “Japanese in Manga-luru” and the elected reps. in the photo-sessions – look brand-new? How do you do it? Is the weekly work(2 – 4 hrs) so hardly (un)rough that you need to buy new equipment every week? Or, are these props kept separate for use during the photo-ops only.
(5) Where is all the dirt and debris dumped after collection? Is it the NIMBY policy that is followed? Is the garbage segregated and disposed as per the waste disposal policy of the govt.? (RK Mission had conducted one such “abhiyan” in my Panchayat area and I heard that the collected garbage, after all the public “show” was over, was simply dumped from one conspicuous place to another “ out of sight is out of mind” place!)
(6) Isn’t whatever the RK Mission is doing, actually the job of the MCC? So why are all the Corporators, MLA’s, MP’s and MLC’s who pose for the photo-ops not actually doing their job! Why is the govt. not held accountable for the civic works?
(7) We are all charged a Swacch Bharat Cess by the govt. in our bills., where does all that money collected from 1.3 billion people go? (is it used to build statues and headquarters).
(8) My Panchayat does not even collect any garbage. I collect the plastics , pay for the transportation and hand it over to the Panchayat and they happily burn it alongwith the other waste in their backyard posing grave health risks to the neighbourhood and the person burning the plastics. Practically everyone else throws their waste(including plastics) into the nearest rain water drainage channel, where it collects until the monsoon season and the rains faithfully wash it into the sea. So much for Swacch Bharat and pollution control!
To wind up, MRPL should spend our public money wisely by donating, to the district administration , a large approved-for- the -purpose incinerator to burn the plastics with minimum air-pollution. All plastics should be collected from all over the district by each of the concerned authorities and sent to this centralised location.
The concerned civic authorities should get their act together and do their job for which they collect taxes from the citizen.
Public money should not be spent in promoting certain organisations, associations and religions who are bent on spoiling the govt.(for their own personal benefit) instead of holding the govt. accountable.
MRPL could have spent those 44.4 lacs better by giving “dhan” to the poor municipal sweepers and garbage collectors for the education and betterment of their children and in providing these workers personal protection clothing and gear to safeguard their health while working rather than pouring it down the drain in making some rich people and some rich organisations richer!
It’s a wonderful achievement! We share your happiness in this occasion.
The extra time you have been putting in on this has really paid off, and I beleive that you have presented an ambitious and attainable set of goals for your team and the company.
Congratulations on doing such a great job on developing a new plan for your group.
It’s the high time… people of Mangaluru, and concerned department should think of stopping all city n service buses in Mangaluru….and providing all the Government buses so that there will be no competition and timings….Bus owners are can’t help because of shortage of real staff…they instead give contracts to bus conductors. It has become out of control of associations. Pity is so many political leaders are owners of buses or permits. Now it’s the time for public to oppose…..Media should high light….then only it will happen
All these campaigns are an eyewash when it comes to building better roads, better traffic signs, better traffic management and policing, and keeping those smoking/polluting buses and trucks off the roads.
Worst than Pollution is the state of the roads during the rainy season and thereafter – and no matter how many craters exist on the main road, nothing is ever taken up to get them fixed, even on a dry day.
So far booking and penalizing has had minimum or no effect at all – and this PUC law is simply a business, that is set up on a low cost- one lady – managed business set up at Petrol Stations all over the country. If PUC was truly implemented in a stringent and effective manner – one would never find those black smoking buses and trucks.
Agents at the Traffic Dept. manage their business very well, hand in gloves with all the staff of the Transport Dept or RTO, and this keeps everyone happy in the game named Pollution Under Control!
Gadkari is the future PM of India. He is a popular leader like Vajpayee.
A bunch of marxists questioning sanathana dharma followers while remaining totally silent on social issues in Islamic and christian population. This is why nobody respects these fake intellectuals. You have to be honest and consistent in your criticism.
I searched in the website of UTMRA and there is no mention of German language teaching at all! Their website is very clear. Something is fishy with his advertisement and it is safe to say that KIA acted properly until authenticity is verified.
I support Prof Nayak in his pursuit of scientific inquiry. After all he has staked his entire property if proved wrong, so he would be the loser.
The late Mother Teresa had never claimed to be a saint, she was herself treated at hospitals by “non-saints” (men of science) and that too in “phoren” lands. It is people who claim that she is a saint ( that a certain religious organization “capitalized” this claim is no wonder). Her work when she was alive makes her worthy to have been called a “living saint”(irrespective of her motives and beliefs).
The recent “miracle” of the THE POTTA nearly getting drowned and the recent “miracles” of Attur Jatre, Karkala, having to go with a begging bowl to politicians to fund them in building more superstructures that too from the poor tax-payers’ money speaks volumes of these “miracle”workers.
in indian culutre they ask to respect naga ..bcos one reason to not to kill that animal so that eco balance will exist there …second point..when naga bana is there ..there you will get greenary and big trees…some time when you get fresh oxygen , your some health problem will improve..i bet no one will get bad health by daily visitng naga bana with big trees and getting fresh oxygen…
next my question to narendra nayak ….
nun called teressa from kalcutta got saint hood…that means she will be now eqvt. to god…and she got that saint hood for doing miracle…only those have ability to make miracle will get saint hood…and this lady cured deadly tumor diseases in 2018 where medical science failed ..by her magic touch…
i request rationalist narendra nayak to prove how teressa defeated medical science and used her miracle to cure deadly diseases…or make another article on showing how all are cheated thru this fake miracle and saint hood..
Wonder why and how people do not learn that E-Commerce is the most unreliable and the most fraud-infested technology ever invented.
So many people get cheated doing online transactions, and sadly the authorities still encourage that everything should be transacted on-line despite so many news articles worldwide of how easily people steal money.
I strongly recommend people to conduct any transaction in the old and trusted ways – like go personally to the Bank to withdraw cash with a Slip or a Cheque, or take a Statement from inside the bank – thus avoiding the ATM and the scams in which people have lost a lot of money. ATM’s are Third Party owned and operated. Cameras do not stop crime and loss!
Shopping or applying for a Franchisee should also be done in person at an address – and not online. In this manner, you know the person or the company whom you interact with, the office or location that you visit and conduct business with.
Banks are also involved in financial scams so much so that these cheats have legitimate accounts in banks – where they ask one to transfer large amounts of money – and so all the absurd ideas of KYC and Aadhar Card implemented by the RBI and the Indian government goes down the drain!
The Internet is good for information, studies and news only- even using it for correspondence is not safe – the old way of letter writing is much safe and reliable – and guaranteed no one can snoop.
How about Rani Abbakka international airport?
The business of keeping an area of a city or a town clean
has two sides. First the Municipality should install sufficient
garbage bins in all public places such Bus Stations, Bus Stops,
Train Stations, Rick Stands, Taxi Stands, Movie Halls, Parks,
and on all main roads. This being done, People must be
educated in the benefit of disposing off garbage properly.
Then the Municipality sweep and clean all the main and
bye-lanes on a every day basis.
Last resort, impose heavy penalty on those found littering –
even the poor litter as they do not want to pay the small
charge the Municipality levies for collection and removal of
garbage on a daily basis.

The sense of cleanliness and hygiene needs to be inculcated in the minds and hearts of children from infancy. But this does not happen in most of the households, because in our culture, we think that cleaning is the servant’s job. As long as we don’t own up cleaning our environs as a personal responsibility, we can’t expect for the situation to change for the better. Only way forward is to include cleanliness in the School curriculum from very early stage of schooling, and doing this in practical ways, so that the kids would learn this as a way of life.
super madam. good for everyone, keep it.
Huge respect to Ms.Violet Pereira for taking the initiative through Parivarthan Trust to improve the lives of these Transgender people..After meeting and hearing them out yesterday, i understand how difficult it must be for them when we ‘normal’ people look down on them. Our society needs to accept them the way they are and help change their lives..Wishing them all the best in life , hoping and praying that they get to live better lives ahead..
Thank you Ms.Sabrina for all your encouragement and efforts..God bless!
It’s high time now the Udupi District In-Charge Minister will take a round from Manipal to Karavali Junction and the Court Road till Kinni Mulki and take stock of the bad state of all the roads, and give orders to the Municipality and the Public Works Dept. to repair and resurface or concrete these prone bad sectors of all the roads. Good roads and good infrastructure directly reflect on the good management of the authorities appointed.
Also, the City Bus Stand in Udupi should be made FREE from all those North Karnataka labourers who have made this place their den for all types of vices, drinking, matka, prostitution, illegal vending, labour bonding, etc. The Superintendent of Police Mr. Laxman should look into this and act. This Bus Stand has become a total mess in recent years. Ladies and girls are not safe at all in this area when some many drunkards are found lingering or laying on the footpaths.
Mangalorean.Com should visit this place in the morning and in the evening and bring this situation to the attention of those authorities who are blind to this situation.
These Indira Canteens are designed with a concept to cater to the extremely poor people and therefore only the poor should be allowed, and not the Private Bus Drivers who earn Rs/1000.- a day and the Rick drivers who make Rs.1000.- a day, and all the others who can very well afford to eat in Restaurants.
A fool-proof system should be incorporated and implemented to restrict abuse of such a thoughtful scheme for benefit of the poor.
The transgender community faces numerous barriers when accessing basic services.Listening to their agony made me realise how difficult their walk of life is.Its time for a change and the Change starts from each one us and all we have to do is change our perception and accept them.
I appreciate parivarthan charitable trust for standing by them in their battle for human rights and thanks to Ms.Sabrina for organising this programme.
Interacting with these girls made us realise how unfair we are to section of our society. How does a person’s sexual orientation matter when it comes to giving them education or jobs? A big thumbs up to the parivatan trust for standing by them!
Very true but add government vehicles and police cars too in it. Seen some PCR taveras emitting smoke like ksrtc busses. Sad. Why only public when government can’t follow? They say no drinking and driving. How many drunk cops are daily roaming around in their cars or bikes and nothing happens to them? What about the high end segment cars? They too are being omitted from being stopped. Recently tint drive. How many politicians roqm and also others with jet black tint? I feel the cops need to get their eyes checked. If it’s partiality, We will PROTEST.
If the Fish traders of South Karnataka are able to meet
with the regulations stipulated and laid down by the
authorities in Goa for the fish being imported for the
benefit of the people of Goa and their huge tourist industry,
then I don’t believe the Fish Traders should have a problem.
Even the health concious locals in Udupi and Mangalore have
stopped purchasing fish after the media pointed out that Formalin
was being used by local Fish Traders to keep fish fresh.
But what transpired after the news article that appeared
two months ago, is anybody’s guess! Either the media is
wrong or the Fish Traders.
The problem in India is, most Ministers are not educated in the portfolio they have been given as Ministers – it’s just a title they are given with a fat salary and unimaginable allowances – they call it Politics. A Minister with Bachelor of Arts education is given a portfolio of Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers, and so on.
Laws and Regulations must have a separate body made up of trade specific educated and professionals so that they can draft out a regulation code, and a law that will be implemented in the strictest sense, before a certain technology takes root, such as Mobile Phones, SIM cards, and Mobile Phone Towers.
SIM cards and installation of Mobile Towers on private home and building towers should have been regulated in its budding stages. Now it is too late to implement a new law – because most of the late laws do not provide for Plan B, such as where will the authority be able to shift and install all the Mobile Towers that are already installed. The Mobile companies are obviously paying money to those homes and building owners where they have installed the Towers – same like Advertisement hoardings – there is no law or regulation, where they should be installed, and private homes and buildings and sites where they are installed, receive money
from the advertisement companies or individuals.
Why are SIM cards not issued as a virtual number to that individual who has subscribed to it, and why are SIM cards being registered in multiple names upon not being recharged and upon being cancelled from it’s owners name, just to generate money in the name of business.
Same goes with Ration Card, Voters Card, Aadhar Card that are asked as a proof of ID, and whereas India lacks a National Identity Card, that should rightly be adopted and issued to every Indian national without any expiration date, as one proof of Identity. As Aadhar Card and Ration Cards have been carried even by nationals of neighbouring countries. The authorities are themselves at loggerheads with the true intention of an Aadhar Card. Let’s be real and practical as Indians!
Perhaps he should approach Mr Ronald Colaco for help.
The problem began with our educational system. I was shocked and appalled when Tipu has portrayed India’s hero who fought the British. Later came Sanjay Khan’s TV serial and now he has become a freedom fighter.
Very good move and need of the hour…. Hope all will take benifts for this service….
Mangalore Catholic society was at the receiving end during Tipu’s rule. many thousand died due to his harsh treatment. However, catholic groups are afraid to protest. They are afraid of angering Muslim community. The arrogance and condescending behavior shown towards Hindu community is totally missing when it comes to Muslim community. Very interesting.
Such gangs are commonly seen at Manipal Udipi Parkala areas.
Police need to be alert and act swiftly.
They need to be sent back to their districts.
THESE BUS DRIVERS MUST BE SEVERELY PUNISHED FOR THEIR RECKLESS
DRIVING HABITS. THEY SIMPLY DO NOT KEEP ENOUGH DISTANCE
TWO CARS SPACE REQUIREMENT BETWEEN TWO VEHICLES.
SO MANY LIVES ARE LOST AND A CASE IS SIMPLY REGISTERED AS
A MATTER OF STATISTICS – WITH THE TRAFFIC DEPT AND THE PEOPLE
IN AUTHORITY NOT UNDERSTANDING THE SERIOUSNESS OF THESE
ROAD DEATHS, THAT CAN BE AVOIDED IF STRINGENT LAWS ARE
APPLIED AND ENFORCED.
From 'Sailing with Resilience' Book of MLC Ivan D'Souza's 4 Year Achievements as Legislator Releasedon
Foremost among his achievements is his annual celebration of “Tipu Jayathi”. Hope you include this every year as I feel your constituents, in particular the Christians will be very proud of you.
Please declare the names of people who suffered due to demonetisation. IT dept can the conduct scrutiny on these people.
Is there a word for that? Just curious.
Drona, your points have been respectfully noted. Thank you.
“Feed a man and he will eat for a day, teach him how to fish and he will never have to depend on anyone again”.
I never do charity work or social service.
Besides,I have no idea why I should engage only with those who celebrate Christmas. Like the other animals and plants, I too am “religion blind” and look at people based solely on their merits.
” Be careful not to practice your righteousness to be seen by them. ……. When you give to the needy do not announce it with trumpets………………. when you give to the needy do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing ………………. ” – Matthew 6:1-4
Finally, I close with the truth and reality which no hypocrite will admit to:
“Nobody ever saw a dog make a fair and deliberate exchange of one bone for another with another dog………But man has almost constant occasion for the help of his brethren and it is in vain for him to expect it from their benevolence only……….. Give me that which I want and you shall have this which you want, is the meaning of every such offer and it is in this manner that we obtain from one another the far greater part of those good offices which we stand in need of ” – Adam Smith ( The Wealth of Nations)
Melroy, while you may be agnostic or an atheist, please remember that a vast majority are believers in God or the supreme being.
I totally agree that animal cruelty is largely preventable and some thing like fire crackers are unnecessary.
I do not claim that I am a vegetarian as such but I prefer vegetarian. I get repulsed at the thought of animal slaughter. May be it is demand and supply chain which keeps the slaughter houses busy.
If we stop using meat, slaughter houses will not be needed.
You may quote Bose regarding plant life. Obviously human beings are healthier with vegetarian diet. Fish of course is good. You catch it and not slaughter.
I know Prof Nayak does not believe in God. That is OK. He does lots of social service and serves the God he does not accept.Paropakaaram punyaaya, paapaaya parapeedanam.
Do some charity work this Christmas. You will find so many unfortunate poor people who look forward to Christmas not because they can afford to celebrate it but they accept Jesus and celebrate his birth. That is a happy time for lots of Christians and others. Make some people happy, share a meal with them or buy a simple gift. That is the spirit of Christmas.As far as Diwali goes, we all know what it stands for. May the light of diwali and the candle of Christmas guide all of us to live happy. Live and let live.
Pulmonary Embolism likely on a long distance flight rspecially if she was on OCP. May her soul rest in peace.
Cause of death?
This is sheer rowdism and the Police are incompetent.
(1) Animals(other than humans) do not have any religion. This is because God(if there is one or a zillion) created REGION ,man added a LI(E) in between and created RE-LI-GION. Therefore, bursting fire-crackers affects animals in the same manner whether it is Diwali, New Year or Christmas or Eid.
(2) Animals (other than humans) do not vote in elections so it does not matter to animals whether JR Lobo wins or loses. Therefore, bursting fire crackers by JR Lobo’s victory celebration before or after election results , last year or whenever , also frightens animals and makes them scared(that includes the sacred animals too).
(3) Plants have as much life and can feel in their own way but that is not perceptible to animals (like human beings) who can only feel when they are pinched. None other than Dr.J.C. Bose, of pure Indian race, proved this scientifically. Therefore, please be kind to animals and plants this Christmas , Diwali and Eid and everyday and eat nothing. For those who believe in RELIGION the word of God should be enough!
Did JR Lobo’s victory celebration by bursting crackers before election results were announced last year also scared animals?
Whether bursting crackers affect animals only during Diwali or during New Year and Christmas also?
