  • From shAikH mOHd rizwaan on Shiv Sena backs forced 'nasbandi' for Muslims

    Dear readers, The Appa-Maga party this kind of statements are not knew .The Almighty Allah has already said in the noble book as below; “Wealth and children are the adornment of the life of this world.” [Noble Quran 18:46] The only true provider for all mankind is Allah. If Muslims follow what Allah has prescribed for them, Allah will provide for them. Allah has warned about killing one’s children out of fear of poverty for either parents or the child. Allah says: “Kill not your children because of poverty – We provide sustenance for you and for them” [Noble Quran 6:151] Allah also says: “And kill not your children for fear of poverty. We shall provide for them as well as for you. Surely, the killing of them is a great sin” [Noble Quran 17:31] The Devendra Fadnavis-led BJP-Sena government had earlier scrapped quota for Muslims in both jobs and education.It has already imposed blank ban on ‘pink revolution’ to hit the Muslims economically hard and at the same time gave the export rights to pro corporate Hindu political sponsores. These Bihari migrant who swear to protect Marata cause will not live minorities to rest in peace. While PM Modi reassuring the right of all faiths,his cattle class ministers and coalition partner will do everything to harm the minorities of India. Jai Hind

    Swamji, people of your caliber has to speak loud now. Let the Hindus-Muslims-Christian-Sikhs-Buddhists-Jains and the rest may hold the flag written with the writing ” we are brothers and sisters” to keep India prospering in peace and love. Those politicians using the religious card to sow the seeds of friction in between the neighbors must be baptized in the holy cow dung pool.

    Alfie,I was at the station when Inspector Nagaraj arrived with this young man. I was stunned to read the Logo on Roy’s Tee Shirt. He did not learn a bit instead ended up in Prison. I was thinking that this young man was brought in for some minor mistake. But when Police man told me about this young man I was speechless. At the age of 21,He was dealing in LSD through a Austrian in Goa. What a daring boy He should be. Mr. Naresh Manipady, Your suggestion is good but Roy had to find a Honest Person to confess. Most of them are sinners themselves and cheaters too. It is like Sinners dealing with Sinners in God’s name.

Annapoorna canteen with their lovely special koorma, veg biryani, chappati made Sundays special. Sudarshan was OK for some quick bite. Shantala or Shanty as it was called also one place we frequented. Now Manipal has many places one can visit for lunch/dinner.

Students from this school went to clean Neermarga while leaving filthy their own school roadside. Here is a real ill effect of Swacha Pedamale. A dozen or so Students were standing near school waiting for Bus. At the same time a tempo fellow dumped some trash in front of these students. None of them cared a damn about it . Same school students went somewhere to tell others how to keep clean surroundings.

    Are “Konkan Qutam” and “Konkan Ghar” two separate entities in one city of Riyadh where there must be nothing more than 200 Konkhan stalwarts??? First of all you are celebrating the feast of Easter in a land where there is so much of close surveillance on all the religious activities, and now that you have one “Qutahm” and one “Ghar” which should all operate as discretely and as delicately as possible in order to maintain the privacy. Remember, I was in that great country for more than twenty years, and I have a great attachment to the people, the places as well as even the sand dunes and the pipelines. We want you all to work together and help one another, and most importantly understand each other by keeping the four walls of the “Ghar” and display the sign of unity by being one single “Qootaam”. “Dhev Bhoren Korun”.

    India is the 2nd largest exporter of beef, about 20% of the beef export in the world, second to Brazil. What kind of a national hypocrisy is this? The protein rich beef is forbidden to the citizens of India, but only for export. The hypocrite cow loving politicians must keep an old cow inside their posh mansions provided by the tax-payers and they must take care of the cow like their own mother, feed and give a bath; also must take with them when they travel as if taking their own beloved mother. When the electorate of India will get some sense to understand this political trick of the politicians?

  • From Mangal on Let's make India Ambedkar dreamt of: Modi

    Yet another earth-shattering speech from the globetrotter that he never means. In Gujarat, whole localities exist where people of other communities, not only of other religions, but segments of so-called Hindus, cannot own a house. Discrimination is order of the day in Gujarat. Isn’t this why Mr Ambedkar chose to become a Buddhist – hoping to get some respect? In Gujarat, 24×7 discrimination is not a rural issue (like most of the rest of India). This is prevalent in almost every city of Gujarat. Does the globetrotter not know this? But then again, when has he ever meant a word of what he says? Oh, well…There are millions of gullible people – not only in India, but also settled in Western countries – who buy lock, stock and barrel every word uttered by the globetrotter. They call him “our beloved PM”. So, “Let us pledge to dedicate ourselves to creating India that Ambedkar dreamt of…an India that will make him proud”. Smiles…

    Mr. Modi, since you are repeating about the secularism of India and the minority religious rights etc, that is exposing to the whole world that there are some serious problems in India so far as the issue of secularism is concerned. So, you will have to fix the problem at the earliest, instead of justifying the issues any farther in the future.

    People have elected the globetrotter so that HE organises all the cleaning up. Isn’t that what Indian democracy all about? Cast the vote to the man with promises too good to be true. Now, unfortunately the globetrotter is too busy trotting the globe. He other half is busy changing the people at the top end, and perhaps handling the Press-Release-wallahs. The globetrotter had kindly asked Mr Siddaramaiah, (and not a BJP CM), to take charge of the rubbish removal. Mr Siddaramaiah, ever alert about the globetrotter’s many ploys, kindly refused. So let us see what magic wand the globetrotter will produce to do things that the previous Government could not. Until then, let us live in the mess of our own creation.

As we don’t believe in blowing the candle,instead letting the light to the dark world to guide us into successive future. While country like Pakistan is adopted austerity by declaring one dish for weddings, Hindu Mahasabha should release ‘Farman’ declaring birthday to be celebrated as ‘Good governance’ day rather than throwing parties for leaders. I would appreciated this while linen should be made swet and dirt by cleaning the roads. Jai hind

  • From shAikH mOHd rizwaan on Join our national movement of Make in India: Modi

    Dear readers, What the Prime Minister’s bespoke dark suit with his full name Narendra Damodardas Modi embroidered into the pinstripes of the fabric said about him. “Oh, just that he is quintessentially a Gujarati. Successful Guajaratis like to show off by adopting the latest in fashion and brands.” The Washington Post has claimed that Mr Modi, despite his Hindu nationalist image, loves top foreign brands and wears Bvlgari shades and a Movado wrist watch. In 2011, when Daily Mail, London, reported that the former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak wore a similar suit, their reporter contacted a bespoke pinstripe cloth manufacturer, Holland & Sherry. They revealed that the clients for its Signature Collection included members of “royalty and captains of industry, as well as champions of sport in boxing and riding.” Mr Modi, therefore, like successful businessmen, boxers and champion riders, is making a statement that he has arrived. Given the media coverage of Prime Minister Modi’s sartorial taste, the day may not be far when Mr Modi may be said to have inadvertently started his own line in fashion. What do his sartorial choices tell us about him and how he wants to be seen? On August 7, 1905, with the passage of Boycott Resolution in a massive meeting held in the Calcutta Town hall, the formal proclamation of Swadeshi Movement was made. After this, the leaders dispersed to other parts of Bengal to propagate the message of boycott of Manchester cloth and Liverpool salt.This included boycott and public burning of foreign cloth, boycott of foreign-made salt or sugar, refusal by priests to ritualize marriages involving exchange of foreign goods, refusal by wahermen to wash foreign clothes. Gandhiji’ goggles have already robbed for “Swtch bharat Abhiyan’ now ‘Swadeshi’ rebranded in ‘make in India’.While Mahatma drapped his ‘khadi’ to cover ,PM Modi prefere bespoke dark suit with his full name embroidered . The lion will only roar to mark his territory and to warn other males around.Modiji is roaring for ‘Make in India’ for foreign brand with Indian labour. The cream has been taken away by multinationals Indians are only left with base left. Jai Hind

      Sir, I saw that in 60 minutes of the CBS, Hosni Mumbark’s custom-made suite with the inscription of his initials costs $ 4000.00. He had several suits like that. In that programme, the CBS showed the slums of Cairo where the poor young and old were going through the slums to pick up trash to earn some money to eat food. Some people wear the shirt with the name initials at the cuff of the shirt; but the fun of having initials all over the suit is a different form of rare style.

    • From A. S. Mathew on Join our national movement of Make in India: Modi

      It is true that the President or Prime Minister of a nation must wear proper and decent clothing to fit the occasion. But, the Prime Minister of a country with 1/3 of the population (400 million) are in abject poverty, when trying to display his outfit performance spending lakhs of Rs., that is too hard to understand. Mahatma Gandhiji’s great influence and the respect he got from the world leaders was not due to his competitive dress march, but his great humility. Mr. Modi’s cap changing for everyday while he is India, and while in the foreign trip without cap he does the changing of the most fashionable dress which will surprise even the world male models. Is he the Prime Minister of the poor or only of the very rich? The most respected Christian evangelist of the 20th century is Dr. Billy Graham; who was the Pastor of the nation, personal friend of the Presidents from Dwight D. Eisenhower to George Bush Jr. His world-wide influence was beyond our imagination, met the world leaders face to face including Pundit Nehru in February 1956 and Ms. Indira Gandhi later on. While he visited India in 1971 to speak at the Nagaland Baptist century celebration, he was treated by the Government of India as a VIP. He bought his suits from Sears, and had no fancy watch or private jets and lived in a cabin house. Whereas some other preachers, the money they spend on custom-made suits-diamonds-private jets-millions of dollars worth of homes in many parts of the nation etc etc, it will create total surprise. Their high level life is questioned by the believers and the media, still some of them won’t change their lifestyle.

    Dear readers, While our visa denied globe trotting PM Modi on heels of reassuring the world body marred by controversy surrounding communal fares who pledged to defend rights of citizens of all faiths. In no time lapse his saffron ministry brigade busy implementing the ‘Bunch of thoughts’ of his great admirer of Sangh Parivar’s Golwalkar. In his earlier statement this Sakshi Maharaj of PM Modi’s darbar said “Good days have come. Now those with four wives and 40 children shouldn’t be allowed in the country. But I also want to ask our people to follow the instruction of sadhus and have at least four children,” “Good days have come. Now those with four wives and 40 children shouldn’t be allowed in the country. But I also want to ask our people to follow the instruction of sadhus and have at least four children,” . Ironically this so called Sadhu which view Hindu women merely as baby making factories know indirectly want to deny the constitutional rights. On September 9, Narendra Modi’s Gujarat Gaurav Yatra rolled into Becharaji, where he delivered his by now infamous Hum paanch, hamare pachees speech — that the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) wanted a text of for its apparently inflammatory content.The speech that the Gujarat Government claimed it had been unable to trace a copy of. ‘Should We Run Relief Camps? Open Child Producing Centres?’ http://www.outlookindia.com/article/Should-We-Run-Relief-Camps-Open-Child-Producing-Centres/217398 We want to firmly implement family planning. Hum paanch, humare pachees (We five, our 25) (laughs). Who will benefit from this development? Is family planning not necessary in Gujarat? Where does religion come in its way? Where does community come in its way?-Narendra Modi’s Gujarat Gaurav Yatra in Becharaji. So it is obvious that ‘Sab ka sath,sab ka vikas’ is merely pole plank to fool the 31% voters dubbed in to Hindu vote bank. Yatha Raja Tatha Praja (As the Ruler so the Ruled).So it is obvious that Sakshi himself is inspired by Modi’s speeches. ‘Make in Gujarat’? Jai hind

    Join our national movement of Make in India: Modi. What is your national movement, MR. Modi? Where is Rs.15,00,000/ you promised to pay “TO EVERY INDIAN” within 100 days of your victory by getting the stashed money abroad? Now, you attack Nehru saying that he spied on the wife, children and Bose family members of Netaji Subhas. Spying was the thing that Nehru had legitimately do to find out if Netaji was really alive and staying in some undisclosed place “AFTER THE FAKE AIR CRASH”, as alleged by Jan Sangh and RSS You people said Netaji did not die in any air crash. You people even suggested that Nehru got Netaji “killed”, soon after India got freedom, so as to ensure that Nehru was not defeated by Netaji, as and when the first general elections were held to elect the Prime Minister of India! NEHRU HAD RIGHTLY DIRECTED THE CID AND INVESTIGATIVE AGENCIES TO VERIFY THE FACTS AND FIND OUT IF NETAJI WAS ALIVE, SO THAT HE COULD BE PRESENTED TO THE INDIANS ALIVE AS THE LIVING EVIDENCE OF NEHRU’S INNOCENCE. TO DO SO HE HAD TO LEGITIMATELY SPY. WHAT IS WRONG IN IT? The RSS had also said that Nehru “got killed” Jana Sangh founder president Dr. Shama Prasad Mukherji too for political gains. The RSS is observing the death anniversary of both Netaji and Mukherjee as “Balidan Divas”, alleging that Nehru killed them both, for political gains. They have also alleged that Deendayal Upadhyaaya, Lal Bahadur Shastri ( At Tashkent), some Nagarwal, etc, etc were all killed by the Congress! Every RSS Shakha brainwashes the Hindu lads saying such stories just as the Muslim extremists do in the Madrasaas alleging wrongs don3e by the Hindus?!! The RSS now says that R. V. Ravi too was killed by Congress!!!

  • From shAikH mOHd rizwaan on A home we left behind 25 years ago - for good

    Dear readers, Kashmir Pandits reserve the right of return to their ancestral land as long as BJP single mission don’t abolish Article 370. During the NC government open invitation has been extended to claim their right. As long as special act in place they are the right owners of their own property left behind which can’t be sold to other than Kashmirs themselves. The plight of the Pandits are much more better than the Muslims in Jammu region.It is one of the least known genocides in modern history. It was carried out with such a precision that it is difficult to find its traces, except in the memories of the survivors, and the tales of horror they passed on to their next generations. Around 500,000 Muslims were killed with military precision. It was such an operation that language lacks words to express this offence of demolition of human being. Though the targeted killing had already started in Jammu around mid July 1947, the operation got a fillip immediately after a fleeing Maharaja Hari Singh and his wife reached Jammu on 26 October 1947. An organised carnage was orchestrated to kill Muslims, wherever found or spotted in Jammu. British daily The London Times quoting its special correspondent in India stated that the Maharaja, under his own supervision, got assassinated 2,37,000 Muslims, using military forces in the Jammu area. The editor of Statesman, Ian Stephen, in his book Horned Moon writes that till the end of autumn 1947, more than 200,000 Muslims were murdered in one go. Horace Alexander wrote in the Spectator (16 January 1948) that the killings had “the tacit consent of State authority” and put the figure at 2,00,000. The Hindu Dogra ruler’s main aim was to change the demographic composition of the region by eliminating the Muslim population. Such was the intensity of carnage that in Jammu province about 123 villages were ‘completely depopulated’. Kathua district ‘lost’ almost fifty per cent of its Muslim population. Thousands of Gujars were massacred in mohalla Ramnagar. Village Raipur, within Jammu cantonment area was completely burnt down. The Dogra State troops were at the forefront of attacks on Muslims. The State authorities were also issuing arms not only to local volunteer organizations such as the RSS, but also to those in surrounding East Punjab districts such as Gurdaspur. 1947-When Jammu’s Rivers Turned Red Terrible Fate: ‘Ethnic Cleansing’ of Jammu’ Muslims in 1947 1947-When Jammu’s Rivers Turned Red The daily Telegraph of London journalist reported on 12 January 1948: ‘Yet another element in the situation is provided by Sikh refugees from the West Punjab who have sized Muslim lands in Jammu… they originated the massacres there last October to clear for themselves new Sikh territory to compensate for their losses in Pakistan and to provide part of the nucleus of a future Sikhistan’. To make an explicit assessment of Jammu’s Muslim massacre by the State-sponsored bid to change demographics in 1947, it is necessary to look at the composition of the population in the region at time. According to the Census of 1941, the eastern half the Jammu province, cutting across small strip of Punjab plain was inhabited by 619,000 non-Muslims, including 10,000 Sikhs and 305,000 martial Dogras Rajputs and Brahmins, and 411,000 Muslims. Forming 40 per cent of the population of this whole area, to the north and astride the Chenab Muslims were in a majority in the Riasi, Ramban, and Kishtwar areas and nearly attained parity in Bhadrawah. The Hindu Dogra Princely State’s main aim was to change the demographic composition of the region by compelling the Muslim population. The depopulation of the Muslim population in the Jammu region is evidenced clearly in the data of the 1961 Census of India. In Jammu province, for example, about 123 villages were ‘completely depopulated’, while the decrease in the number of Muslims in Jammu district alone was over 100,000. The Muslims numbered 158,630 and comprised 37 per cent of the total population of 428,719 in the year 1941, and in the year 1961, they numbered only 51,690 and comprised only 10 per cent of the total population of 516,932. Kathua district ‘lost’ almost fifty per cent its Muslim population. Now comparing to the various International media,the Muslims in Jammu region has suffered worse than Pandits at the time who are still resident of the Kashmir Valley unit the events of 19 January 1990 were particularly vicious. It would be wrong to blame Kashmiris alone who themselves became victims of the great man made tragedy of ‘1947 Partition’ by the colonial power.While BJP is the political offshoot of RSS the Hindu Mahasabha,Jan Sangh. which sided with British raj politics of Kashmir remains a important subject which surves the basis devisive politics. Instead of reconcillation effort by PM Modi certnal and colation government in JK,to woo the Padits to return with Isralei style colonise, which serves the demographic equation and further strength hate will not be good in the larger interest of Jammu and Kashmir. Jai Hind

  • From Max and Jessie Rasquinha on Mangaluru: Fulbright Specialist Dr Lorna Gonsalves from USA to Launch 'Reflection Park' at Roshini Nilaya

    Establishing a “Reflection Park” at Roshni Nilaya under the expert Leadership of Dr. Lorna Gonsalves would be a marvelous idea indeed. The intellectual crop of Mangalore should be thrilled with this proposal and should therefore embrace this thought overwhelmingly with an all-out support. Interaction between faculty members of different Educational Groups in Mangalore does take time. Faculty members are little hesitant to come forward and express their views on so many issues that need be addressed spontaneously with an open heart because each Institution has their own internal policies and philosophies while sharing their ideas openly for public debates. Dr. Lorna Gonsalves however has selected the right Institution in Mangalore to expose the “Reflection Park”, and we are sure that both Dr. Jacinta D’Souza and Dr. Sophie will extend their best possible support. We were in Mangalore last year for the Annual Day of Roshni Nilaya where they brought a lady from the Mangalore University to be the key-note Speaker. The presentation that Dr. Sophie made thru an impressive power point presentation on the wide spectrum of Roshni Nilaya’s intellectual activities followed by the key note speech from Dr. Begum was highly admirable. Mangalore has the best substance to reciprocate all that Dr. Lorna Gonsalves has in store and you have our whole hearted support for this worthy cause towards Mangalore that will benefit from all around. God bless Mangalore, because thru the Educational foundation and support Mangalore will continue to flourish ‘ten-fold’.

It’s only at the end of the post, author candidly admits the real dark force making life a living hell for ‘others’. If this is how apologetic the real victims are, why should I blame some joker praveena pinto sitting at a distant Mangaluru ?

  • From A. S. Mathew on Join our national movement of Make in India: Modi

    Mr. Sanjay Kirloskar, the CEO of Kirloskar Brothers Corporation since 1983 made a statement, probably after talking with the foreign business people in Hannover, “mos investors in the foreign countries are Christians”, they are very cautious due to the Church attacks in India. Mr. Modi’s “make in India” red carpet spread invitation won’t be too effective if the foreign investors are not safe to invest in India. Now to make the matters worse, direct attack towards the Muslim population of India, the 2nd largest Muslim population of the world is living in India. Now, along with the Christian nations of the world, the Islamic Nations of the world are getting highly cautious too. To please a minority percentage of the electorate, the politicians played the harp of religious music and now it has turned like fireworks. Mr. Modi has to rectify this trap created by the statements of his party leaders and the sister party mouthpieces; else the “make in India” invitation will be remaining as a big invitation.

    Mr. Amith Shaw, the sole authority of the BJP party now, while standing in front of his huge poster at the Delhi election delivered the sermon of paradise, the black money statement that every Indian citizen of India will get Rs. 15 lakh was a “metaphorical” statement. Let the electorate of India may walk to the local bank expecting a miracle that they have Rs. 15 lakh in their checking deposit, so write a check believing the miracle in the political promise of Mr. Modi; thus this confusing problem can be solved.

This has helped in creating so much energy and talent in Dahskina Kannada region. However, I don’t understand their fascination with Raajasthan style ‘mundaasu’. This is very different from our tulunaadu-style Mundaasu. I hope they encourage tulunaadu tradition over Bollywood style. Oh well…

It’s a sad thing that the real progressives have to find support in people like Ray who see right things for wrong reasons!! In a way, this also represents a real, tragic failure on the part of secular, liberal groups. These groups are supposed to fight for liberal, progressive, secular values. Instead, they are being totally bullied by ‘peaceful’ community into tolerating their intolerance!!

    Dear readers, By looking at the pictures it was systematically targeted at one community to make them economically viable.If the construction was illegal without any proper documentation, why the authorities not served a “Stay order”? How does gram panchayat not aware of the so called illegal construction which they waited once it is fully completed? It seems Israeli colonisation is evident in terms of India’s own version under BJP central rule is started specifically targeting minority dominated area. Another reality from the ‘Gujarat Model’; Ahmedabad : Why Muslim areas on the target in demolition drive? http://muslimmirror.com/eng/ahmedabad-why-muslim-areas-on-the-target-in-demolition-drive/ As an example for the racist approach Modi’s govt plan to build Israeli style Hindu township in Kashmir, decades after Godhra carnage the victims of riots are still living in the ghettos of camps. While he was to assure the world body on pluralism, Modi’s “hum paanch, hamare pachees” reference from a 2002 election speech is more defining of his attitude to Muslims than anything concrete he may have done from the community after his election.

    Whatever that happens is directly related to our beloved PM as per the wise man from Turkey. OK. Give credit when due. When will you do that Mr Shaikh?-Mr.Drona,India Sir, Truth always triumph!The Minimum governance maximum governance is hardly visible despite a year in office and their is no change in ground reality.Despite crumbling International crude oil less than half the rate during UPA, citizens of India are forced to pay the when crude at its peak. In other hand while ‘Nirbaya’ was gang raped in Delhi, seizing the opportunity BJP made rape a political tool to mass the young voters to turn the tide against Sheila Dixit government. While their own ruling state like Madhya Pradesh record highest number of rapes in India. The main agenda of the government is maximise safrnoise everything in their capacity to remain long term in office.A Capitalist focused PM Modi’s government is busy grabbing the land of poor in the name of development even not missing opportunity of blocking the accounts of NGo like ‘Green peace’. A peace became hard reality due to steep rise in communal flares,’Aache din’ is numbered for the poor. I would appreciate if our globe trotter PM will wake up from deep slump, seriously consider the ‘Ghar vapasi’ of destitutes who were forced to sell their Kidneys,eyes etc. Jai hind

    Thank you, dear Alfie, for your informative article on the Leprosy Asylum of Fr. Muller’s Hospital which is an inspiring gift of charity from the Christians of Mangalore 125 years ago. The Jesuit priests, six in number, that came to Mangalore during the 19th century had a foresight on their charitable mission for the cause of needy in Mangalore. They also expanded their thoughts towards Education. Therefore they went to the Light House Hill for Education and they went to Kankanady for their Medication. Then they went to Jeppoo for their Religious movement. They bought some of the prime properties of Mangalore and make our town so rich in heritage added with discipline. Then came the Missionary nuns such as Sisters of Charity, Carmelites and A.C. order to help the Jesuits. All of these activities were carried out thru the blessings of the Bishop and the Diocese. Leprosy Asylum in Mangalore is a noteworthy Instittute. Dr. Lorsab and also Dr. Coelho have dedicated great deal of their time and effort for this noble cause. We have frequently visited the Leprosy Asylum many many times, including the Xmas midnight Mass. The Leprosy choir was the best in town then, and so also the nativity Crib that they displayed including the home made Chinese lanterns with candles. I met Blessed Mother Theresa for the first time at the Leprosy Asylum at Kankanady where Dr. Venkat Rao garlanded the saintly lady when we all knelt down and watched the glorious occasion. Our sister, Sr. Joan lived few yerds from the Leprosy Asylum from where she did her Graduate studies. Long live the name of Fr. Mullers who had a vision and also a love for Mangalore. Jesuits knew their way into the heart of Mangalore, and focus on Leprosy research and treatment was their specialty. The nuns from the Sisters of Charity were more than the “Gift of Angels” in our home town that made the place into a modern City of today

Keep up the good work. Let the community enjoy all the benefits that your host government renders you under all the prevailing circumstances. Whatever you do, particularly in Saudi Arabia, do it in moderation. Maintain a low profile. You do not have to even mention “Pask Porob” as this can be construed in different ways by the authorities. “Moderation” is the key. The more low profile you display, the more successful you will be.

      Mr. B.N. Pai: Most of the politicians have a different psychology than the common people. The politicians will never forget their political enemies and driven by sleepless nights looking to get an appropriate time and opportunity to retaliate without any mercy. On the other hand, they are under a false notion and pretense that the hidden roles they have played to create death and bloodshed are bygone chapters and buried under the Pacific ocean. Two places you have mentioned will rise up again to question the hidden actors in due time; because history tells that open reality repeatedly. As you have clearly stated, the “beef” is now used as the best political weapon by the BJP and her sister parties, not for any solid religious principle, thus pushing thousands of people into unemployment, poverty and hunger.

  • From Mango Man on Easter – The Resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ

    For the sake of interest when I checked Wikipedia – following information is how muslims believe about Jesus’s last days. “Just before Allah raised Jesus to the Heavens, Jesus went to his disciples, who were twelve inside the house. When he arrived, his hair was dripping with water (as if he had just had a bath) and he said, ‘There are those among you who will disbelieve in me twelve times after you had believed in me.’ He then asked, ‘Who among you will volunteer for his appearance to be transformed into mine, and be killed in my place. Whoever volunteers for that, he will be with me (in Paradise).’ One of the youngest ones among them volunteered, but Jesus asked him to sit down. Jesus asked again for a volunteer, and the same young man volunteered and Jesus asked him to sit down again. Then the young man volunteered a third time and Jesus said, ‘You will be that man,’ and the resemblance of Jesus was cast over that man while Jesus ascended to Heaven from a hole in the roof of the house. When the Jews came looking for Jesus, they found that young man and crucified him”

    The problem with Virat Kohli is that he is a hot headed fellow. Before India won the World Cup in July 1983, cricketers did not make money worth the name. However, today the scenario has completely chjanged. Today’s hectic cricket, money, fame, sponsorships, etc. have propelled the fortunes of cricketers many of whom, today, come from humble backgrounds and overnight they are millionaires and they totally lose their moorings with their countrymen and have exaggerated importance of themselves and consider that they are some special breeds. I am aware that Virat Kohli’s father was a criminal lawyer, but I wonder they had this much money that he is raking in today. With this money at their disposal, they behave as if they are some rich nationals from those countries that by virtue of being leading economies enjoy very high per capita incomes. The fact of the matter is that majority of Indians are poor and live in abject poverty and cricketers playing for India should thank their lot for the nation’s madness and rave for vrticket that has made them wealthy. In fact, besides playing cricket, they should do some charity work. However, irrespective of their origins and background, they have fascinations for fancy, top-of-the-range cars, motor-bikes, fire arms and all trappings of wealth. They want girl-friends who are film stars, models, fashion designers (and what not). They just do not understand that the more high profile, liberated and famous one’s girl friend is, then the chances of divorce after marrige are very high. I do not understand why should Virat Kohli make a fuss about the comments made by the media on his performace during the semi-final match against Australia and they blamed it due to the presence of his girl friend in Australia during the world cup? He had problems in Australia over an incidence there and now this. The media has learnt about his weakness and they will take full advantage of it and badger him on some pretext or the other all throughout his career. Moreover, as he is the captain of the test team, he should learn to be cool and level-headed like Mahendra Singh Dhobi, otherwise not only his captaincy will be taken away from him and he may not find a place in the team. Then, the only option for him would be a career in acting – should be get an opportunity.

  • From Vinayak on Bhatkal: Officials reclaim Government land, demolish houses

    Just wondering if the local authorities had given them the license to build the houses. If yes, then the AC should first target the authority who gave them the permit to build the houses. No matter which caste or religion the people are from. For a human owning a house is also a dream and its not easy to make this dream come true. One works hard all his life and by a small saving over the period he/she has done, they tend to move and build a house which they call “heaven”. Its a pity to see that houses are demolised and all the hardship of a human have gone down the drain. I can only pray in god to give strength to these people and get re-settled in their lives once again.

  • From Roy on Man sells 2-month-old son to buy medicine for wife

    He wants to wriggle out of a situation wherein, on the one hand he must keep Hindu extremists happy in India – B. N. Pai. Sir, I have a slightly different take from what you have said. The PM is discovering the world afresh after his ascension to power. Otherwise he was confined to Gujarath, and his vision would be, to put mildly KOOPAMANDUKA. For Nehru, liberalism was very essence of India. For the current PM, it is a necessity thrust upon him by the very essence of India. Now that he is touring the world, one would hope, he would learn a thing or two about liberal ideas that shaped India. However, one must know that he is kept on a tight leash by rabid fringe elements from his own party. So, do not expect much to change. Alas, how he is torn between two worlds. But it is his own making in a way. His chelas expect him to perform miracle and transform India overnight. Any magicians anyone knows of, who might be of help. What will RSS do now. Will it change its color and cease to be a parochial organisation.

  • From Mangal on Airbus supports Modi's 'Make in India' initiative

    There is much distance between a speech for the gallery and signing something on the dotted line. People have given many great speeches in the past. The gullible immediately give a standing applause. Those who are in sales know how to hoodwink the gullible. Let us be honest. Air India, one of greatest in loss-making airlines in the world, is a major customer of Airbus. Air-India’s losses run into several thousand crores. It will be major worry for Airbus if Air India is privatised. So, by talking sweet to the permamnent globtrotter, Airbus is ensuring that their business continues in the foreseeable future. The permamnent globtrotter is a happy man. Even the French are praising him. By extension, all of the globtrotter’s ardent fans are happy too. The French are treating their hero as a superman. Which one is more important to India? Getting praises for our globetrotter, or getting rid of the permanent rot called Air India from public ownership?

Govt Allows Pharma Cos to Hike Prices of 509 Essential Drugs. http://epaperbeta.timesofindia.com/Article.aspx?eid=31816&articlexml=Govt-Allows-Pharma-Cos-to-Hike-Prices-of-09042015010021 Prices of drugs for various ailments like diabetes, hepatitis & cancer to go up by 3.84% Soon more and more Indians will force to sell their wives,childrens and organs to support mounting health bill, health budget which already one of the world’s lowest. In the meantime Pro Hindutva PM Modi and his Union ministers can brand ‘Gomutra’ as an alternate medicine for the poor Indians already in death row due to unaffordable bills. Finally PM Modi’s Aache din is visible ‘Robbing Peter to pay Paul’. “AB KI BAR MODI SARKAR, KUCH CORPORATE KE SATH” Jai hind

      The world-wide economic meltdown is not improving due to one main reason, the extreme polarization of wealth, being held by 1% of the rich people. We are going to watch the same formula in an extreme manner in India, the rich and the richest will be getting far rich and richest; and the poor and the middle class will be getting poor and poorest.

Modi government came to power just few months back.. these people are so prejudiced and have jaundiced eye that they do not have the guts to question the state government or Congies who were there in the centre for the previous 10 years .. Its very entertaining to see each of these jaundice effected Congies falling head over heels to blame PM. Modi for everything!!

  • From Max E Rasquinha on Mangaluru: Solemn Eucharistic Celebrations to Mark 125 Years of ' St Joseph Leprosy Hospital' at FMCH

    Thank you, Alfie, for your nice write up, as usual, on Fr. Muller’s Hospital named as St. Joseph Leprosy Hospital who is celebrating 125 years of their establishment. Leprosy Asylum and the dedication of the Jesuits in and around Mangalore from the 19th Century has been a landmark of history of Christian contribution towards Mangalore. Leprosy Asylum has always been the corner stone of Fr. Muller’s where they not only created a safe haven for the Lepers but also researched on the Leprosy disease and gave the patients a hope of cure and comfort. Dr. Lorsab and also Dr. Coelho have dedicated a great deal for the lepers. Leprosy Asylum also had a wonderful chapel for worship. Their liturgical services for Xmas midnight were excellently organized with the best choir in town. Their Xmas crib well decorated with the home made Chinese lanterns are still remembered. Every time I learn about Fr. Mullers and also the Leprosy Asylum there is a special kind of electrifying feeling within me because both the places have been always dear to our family. This is the place I met Blessed Mother Theresa for the first time where late Dr. Venkat Rao greeted with garlands and rituals while we all knelt and prayed for God’s mercy for our beloved home town. The best blessing of Fr. Mullers was the “Gift of Angels” that were bestowed upon us thru the presence of the nuns of Sisters of Charity who have perfected the place with lot of good charity and hospital efficiency. When I see Dr. Olinda Pereira in the picture it reminds me of my sister, Sr. Joan who lived only about fifty yards from the Leoprosy Asylum from where she carried out her Education. When I see Fr. Denzil itt reminds me where the Jesuits laid their foundation stone at the Light House Hill. When I see Fr. Santosh it reminds me how the Jesuits moved to Jeppoo and established the Seminary as well as the workshop. These are all the prime properties of Mangalore where the Jesuits came to our noble town in the 19th century and created a monumental success for the people of regardless of their faith or backgrounds. Fr. Mullers is an exemplary place where Fr. Mullers came up with the Homeopathic medicine where the entire complex has become an ideal place for medicine and treatment. Thank you, Fr. Mullers for all your dedication towards Mangalore.

    Why do you think there is no peace in the world? Is it due to minority religions? -Drona. Sir, your comments are highly inappropriate here, considering how a tiny minority in your own religion belonging to upper caste treats those who are lower in hierarchy. Perhaps a soul searching before castigating others might be a great help. Are you not aware what upper castes and RSS calls those who eat non-vegetarian food. Are you still looking for answers when you very well know how Daliths are treated and called by names worse than pagan. Please spare us from your condescension.

  • From Nelson Lewis on Mumbai terror strike accused Lakhvi released from jail 

    A little distance from my house, there is a seller who sells books and his shop is located bang opposite a college across the road. He has quite a number of books that he buys and sells. And, at times, a reader who reads particular types of books, accidentally comes across some good stuff. When I take books from him, he keeps a deposit which he returns on handing back the book after I have read the same. Recently, I took a book titled, “The Red Sari: A dramatised biography on Sonia Gandhi,” and it made a very interesting reading and tells how and where they met, their love affair, etc. From the book it appears the couple were very loving and adored each other and she adjusted to the Indira Gandhi household very well and both adored each other, which is quite opposite when it came to her other daughter-in-law. From the book it appears that Sonia Gandhi lost her cool with Rajiv Gandhi just once in their marriage, when he decided to join politics due to extreme pressure from the Congress politiciansd. This he did because his mother wanted his help, especially after the death of Sanjay Gandhi. The author is an Italian and has written the book by doing a thorough research and by meeting the people concerned in Italy, the U.K., India and elsewhere. After reading the book, I felt further enlightened and educated in regard to Indira, Sanjay and Maneka, Rajiv and Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka Gandhis. From the book, it appears that Octavio Quattrochi was a family friend of Sonia Gandhi and uused to frequently visit her place in Delhi.

  • From Jay on Mangaluru: Muslims themselves are Victims of Terrorism - Sufi M K Chishty

    “1,400 years ago, Prophet Mohammed clearly spoke about Islam in Quran and Hadees but some pervert people corrupted Islam and misled, misread and misinterpreted” said Gujarat BJP Minority Morcha state president and head of Gujarat Haj committer M.K. Chishty. Let’s say we agree with you that Islam is a peaceful religion, but we have questions and I hope to have answers. 1. It appears you are referring to Muslims who are misunderstanding and misleading your religion. But how is that possible that apparently clear instructions from a divine source (which should have been flawless) is being misread, misinterpreted and worse a divine message gets corrupted by an ordinary man? The Holy book – The book says do good and they are doing bad? Let’s accept there is a misunderstanding among Muslims, could you kindly quote the chapters and verses which are good but are being misinterpreted. This is very, very important and we all need to know. 2. Again, let’s say people are misunderstanding, and these numbers are growing larger that every country with a sizeable Muslim presence has heavily armed Muslim Groups committing acts of terror. In this electronic age we also see and hear many Muslims making videos of their martyrdom operations and again quoting from the same ‘holy’ books and stating that this is how they understand they should be governing themselves? So, for 1400 years with so much of misinterpretation no one is being schooled into what is the “real” Islam? 3. Why don’t we see Jains, Buddhists, Sikhs, Hindus, Jews & Christians going on a rampage after they start reading and practising from their Holy books, quoting scripture as the reason for their actions? 4. We don`t see heads of Islamic Countries, The Grand Mufti’s of Al Azhar, The head of the Grand Mosques in Saudi, All 55 members of the OIC condemn these actions from the pulpits of mosques and challenge the actions of these misguided people and invite them to dialogue broadcast live publicly explaining to those misguided people that they are wrong, wrong, wrong. Instead of talking to local media M.K Chishty and his ilk should be jetting to Islamic strongholds around the world and having discussions with leaders from The Islamic State, Boko Haram, Hamas, Al Qayeda, The Houtheis, Hezboallah (The Party of Allah), Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hezb-o-Tahrir just to name a few of the several armed groups. Please don`t quote verses that have been abrogated as they DO NOT count, and If you are quoting chapter 5 verse 33, then quote the whole verse without leaving anything out any thing, and also quote verse 5:34. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck – THEN It IS A DUCK, DON’T HOODWINK ME INTO BELIEVING IT IS A HEN.

    Both Goa minister and B.Dinesha (with multiple degrees from University of London) don’t sound very intelligent. The Goa minister seems to be embarrassing himself with his lame excuse for those who disrespect women by passing comments in public. I don’t care saree or mini-skirt, nobody has the right to rape a woman. Blaming the victim is what this Minister is doing and he should be fired from his post. On the other hand, our Dinesha turns this into another straw-man argument to blame entire India. For example, see how he blames India for global economy that was originally started by west!! There is nothing wrong in India fighting for a share of global business. Also, he doesn’t seem to be aware of many educational institutions who ban sarees, bindi and other traditional indian dress-code in the name of ‘modernity’. It probably requires some intellectual honesty to admit reality.

Do we want to be like Taliban or Pakistan and control our women? probably not! We have a choice – keep the western countries out OR have them invest and eradicate poverty by creating jobs!

    Dear Sharia Pandita, Your post makes no sense. Why are you bringing up Goa, BJP, RSS, Modi, Jains, aghori and every other thing into this discussion when my comments are purely on a dress code that hides your identity ? Remember – this dress code comes from those backward, tribal areas where men used this as a tool to hide the identity of their women. The ONLY purpose behind this dress was to hide identity of women from other ‘kaamanna’ tribal folks. LOL Answer the following questions: – Why are people from only one community caught in Mangaluru Vimaana Nildaana ? – How many more black flags have you added to your personal collection ? – Why is your tribal kingdom of Saudi Arabia acting very tough on Houthi rebels of Yemen while showing a very sympathetic stand on ISIS and other sunny terrorists ?

  • From A. S. Mathew on Easter – The Resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ

    While Dr. Billy Graham was riding with his host the Catholic Bishop Vladimar in Russia, Dr. Graham asked him whether the focusing of the message should have any change. After a brief pause, the Bishop responded ” emphasis the resurrection of JESUS CHRIST. His virgin birth by the word itself a miracle and unique event never happened in history; but we see the next unique event, HE is risen from the grave, and HIS grave is empty. The sight of the empty grave has miracle working power. I didn’t know, how to define my brother in-law’s religion. His talk was totally focused on money; on the other hand, he won’t believe a thing without seeing and touching. Is it belief? Believing without seeing is belief and JESUS has categorized them as blessed. Talking about GOD or spiritual issues were too hard for me with my dear brother in-law. He went to Israel for a fun visit, visited the places JESUS walked, and finally visited the grave of JESUS. When I met him after the Holy Land visit, I didn’t ask him anything, indeed was apprehensive that he would contradict the things he has seen there as mere myth. But, to my surprise, the former tight lipped brother in-law began to deliver a long sermon of his visit; said he is a believer in JESUS CHRIST since visiting the Holy Land, especially the empty grave. THE RESURRECTION OF THE LORD JESUS MAKES THE TOTAL DIFFERENCE.

  • From B. Dinesh on Satyam case: Ramalinga Raju, nine more get seven-year jail

    Glad to see that this case was resolved in an expeditious manner (considering the pace of court cases in India). The sentences handed down are rather light considering the amount of money lost by investors. This should send a strong message to others who are involved in such scams. The Indian SEBI should check into other companies who may be involved in inflating their books!

    A bit too late for the Indian government to recognize this great man but nevertheless well deserved! The entire family has been doing a great job of providing religious service, education, and charitable services for decades and yet have been humble and honest throughout – a rare virtue in India today.

    How many people died due to fall when sudden brake was applied. There was time when every bus had doors and when passenger got inside the bus, Conductor closed the door to be safe. There were only 7 passengers allowed to stand. Due to the greed and the corruption,passengers die and leave the family in sadness. Law says that no travel on foot board. But passengers hang out unsafely. Lawless City.

    • From Alban D' Souza on Easter – The Resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ

      Dear Fr. Richard. Wish you a happy and blessed Easter. First of all thank u for your compliments and encouragement. I could recall the great fruitful ministry you rendered in Udyavar Parish for 7 long years.Actually I like the word “Evengelisztion” . When Jesus appoints His disciples and priests for evengelizaion He also gives authority to every Christian for this great task. So we are grateful to God for this. This is my belief. So Every Christian has to understand this and live by life and deed. As we are humans difficult but of course Jesus knows the weekness and he will fill us in the Holy Spirit as the same in His life. So every Christian can avoid the sinful nature through the Holy Spirit. We thank God for giving us good priests. Actually I am not a big writer but I have that background inherited from my parents and forefathers and parish priests of course, and thank all of them for grooming the great faith on Christian belief. They are God fearing and devotional. So I just wanted to give the same message to todays youth so that they could build up their future life on this faith on a solid foundation which gives meaning to their life. Secondly Fr. Yes our family now shifted from Udyavara to Bajjodi by God’s grace. You are welcome at any time Fr. to our new residence over there. By God’s grace I am working at present in Doha Qatar moved from Dubai few years back. I feel this is the inspiration from God. Please pray for me. I do. Thank u once again.

    While the younger members wait for ‘paaluvation’ of the property, the old folk wait for palliation. It is important to maintain the dignity of the elders so that they can enjoy the remaining lives peacefully. Loss of control and dignity can be very damaging and should be avoided.

    • From Nelson Lewis on Mangaluru: A 'Veiled' Attempt at Theft - Man Disguised as Woman Arrested at Ullal Darga

      Regarding this incident of a man dressed in a traditional muslim lady’s attire, who was caught in the act of stealing and roughed up and handed over to the police, an incident came to my mind. Years ago, I was sorking in a construction company in Bahrain and one evening while quitting for the day (from our office compound, where we were located in a predominantly Shia area and, thertefore, quite restive in the 1990s), while we had gone out and reached the side lane to turn to the main road, we were surprised to see from our vehicle someone in a burqah and veil sitting on the ground by the kerbside. This was a very rare and unusual spectacle for us and one of us said, “Why is a lady sitting in burqah and veil on the footpath? She must be quite bold to sit in such a manner against the traditions of their community?” The next day we realised that this person was not a lady, but a man, who hurled a Molotov cocktail at our Administration Manager’s car, while he was retiring for the evening and driving out. Fortunately, he escaped and was safe and sound. In Bahrain, there are many Pakistanis who clamour to become Bahrainis, as they do not want to go and settle down in Pakistan, because that country is amongst the ten most lawless countries in the world and there is no guarantee of what will happen to anyone. Many such people are in the police or retired from the police (and have been staying in Bahrain with their families). One Pakistani young lady joined the company. My colleagues told me that she is coming to work in traditional attire and refuses to wear uniform. So, I asked my colleagues to call her so that I could talk to her and convince her to wear uniform. When she came and talked to me, she flatly refused to wear uniform and said that she will be wearing her traditional attire. I told her that if she is not willing to comply with the company’s policies and procedures and rules and regulations, then there is no way out. She said that in that case, she will quit working immediately. I said fine and she left. There were one are two interestong cases with doctors from a country in utter turmoil, but then let us leave it for some other day. Finally, what I wish to say is that however religious, convervative or traditional one is, that should be in the confines of one’s home and the place of worship. Outside, especially when it comes to one’s bread-and-butter, one should not put one’s blinkers on, be stubborn as a mule and shoot one’s foot. As simple as that.

    My heartfelt condolences to Hemakka, Parineeta, and Babitha on the loss of dear husband to Hemakka, loving and caring father to Parineeta And Babitha and adoring grandpa to his grandchildren. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this difficult time. Justice Jagannathanna lived a simple life after his retirement from the Supreme Court shying away from all the glamour that is normally associated with past retirees. I don’t think he was bestowed with the honor of “Prominent St. Aloysian” although he attended the college and distinguished himself as a student and rose to prominent position which only handful of Aloysians did. He was a epitome of honesty and integrity that is rarely seen nowadays. May his soul rest in peace and his family find solace cherishing beautiful memories of the past.

  • From Prakash on In the Land of Coconut Trees

    While the sentiment expressed by the author of this article is indeed valid, we also need to remember that each individual is also entitled to a window to look out of. Sadly the land in cities is limited and the fact that most peoples livelihood and access to civic services depends on their ability to reside in the proximity of a city makes such a situation impossible to avoid. So while we may lose our soothing views of the countryside, let us also understand that our loss is only as a result of someone being able to achieve their goal of owning their own window to look out of.

    In the past it was the British to be blamed for everything that was wrong with India – and now it is the western culture! It is not what the women wear! The fact of the matter is that Indian parents have systematically been involved in female infanticide for decades leading to an imbalance in the male to female ratio. One way to address the issue is to legalize prostitution. Both the politicians and the people have to agree to a solution. Blaming the west is not the answer. The minister is a hypocrite as I cannot trust that he walks the talk! It is a known fact that many politicians indulge in extra marital affairs or indulge in prostitution!

    Thanks for the thought provoking article. First pic reminds me of my beloved Mangalore. Today’s pic is still OK. But several years from now, we would see fewer trees. This is the price we pay for progress. I am really sad to see this happen. But that’s the reality. I never be able to judge people who altered the landscape, sadly it happens. I wish places like Mangalore (which is culturally vibrant and mature) could designate open spaces – this will never happen. but, one can only hope. I left Mangalore many many moons ago, But, Mangalore never left me. I am sure many folks in the similar situation feels the s same about Mangalore.

    Well written Dr. Ahmed. It is sad to see that many coconut trees have been removed to make room for high rise buildings. I wish more people in India understood the value of preservation. The original house (Dove Cottage) of the great poet William Wordsworth that stands in Grasmere (lake District) is a great place to visit. It still looks like how it was during the 19th century. The entire Lake District has been so well conserved. The daffodil fields are also close to his house. See the link below:

  • From Anand Dsilva on In the Land of Coconut Trees

    Coconut trees, coconut juice is part of our culture. In the olden days everybody owned houses and each house was surrounded by coconut trees. Most of the houses in the olden days and few even now seem like it is deep inside the woods surrounded by coconut trees. The problem is we humans are supposed to do something. If we sit idle we are considered lazy. Mostly we are judged by how much we earn no matter what and how. Since India’s population is expanding fast, for builders and others who want to make a quick buck ‘coconut trees’ looks like ‘Rupeeeeeessss’. Why not cut it down and convert into flats after all how much money a coconut tree can fetch by the number of coconuts it can produce compared to lakhs it can earn if the land is levelled. Somewhere I read that until we sell the last leaf remaining of the plant on the planet for money only after that we will realize the value of plants. Coconut trees is ingrained in our culture and only way we hope is the future generation will be more sensible to preserve it.

The Hindu Mahasabha, in an editorial in its weekly publication Hindu Sabha Varta, has challenged Shahrukh, Aamir and Saif to convert to Hinduism if they really love their wives, according to The Hindu. YES! IF THEY ARE BJP LEADERS, HINDU MAHASABHA OF VEER SAVARKAR, THE FATHER OF JANA SANGH AND BJP, HAS THE RIGHT TO PARDON AND EVEN HAIL THE LOVE JEHADIS ! THEREFORE, THEY DO NOT DEMAND THAT THE BJP LEADER, MUKHTAR ABBAS NAQVI, AND HIS HINDU WIFE SEEMA – CONVERTED TO ISLAM AS A VICTIM OF LOVE JEHAD, SHOULD BECOME HINDUS TO PROVE THEIR LOVE TO BE TRUE. FOR THE VERY SAME REASON, THEY DO NOT DEMAND THAT THE BJP LEADER, SHAHNAWAZ AND HIS HINDU WIFE – CONVERTED TO ISLAM, RENU SHARMA, SHOULD BECOME HINDUS TO PROVE THEIR LOVE TO BE TRUE. THEY DO NOT ASK Suhasini Haidar, daughter of Subramanian Swamy TO BECOME HINDUS TO PROVE THEIR LOVE TO BE TRUE! The late BJP vice president and former governor of Kerala, Sikander Bakht, also had married a Hindu woman, Raj Sharma. IN SHORT, RSS AND BJP LEADERS CAN BE LOVE JIHADIS AND THEY ARE LICENSED TO CONVERT HINDUS TO ISLAM, AS THEY RSS IS AUTHORISED TO PERMIT LOVE JEHAD.

    IN DUBAI, PEOPLE STRICTLY FOLLOW THE RULES WHILE DRIVING, Confirms. Ln Manjunath Murthy. Yes, and this is a fact. BUT, most citizens and expats, if not all, do so , because laws and regulations in Dubai are strictly implemented and enforced, and fines and punishments are pretty high and harsh. Irresponsible drivers, Driving Under the Influence, etc., are found in all countries from Uganda to USA, but comparing Dubai’s laws and regulations to Indian laws and it’s strict implementation is truly absurd. One fine example to this argument is the classic case of Actor Salman Khan, who is charged with man slaughter, and even after 12 years, he simply states that he was not the guy driving!!! In Dubai too accidents do happen on a daily basis, and are fairly common as in any country- always due to human error or human arrogance – as most vehicles are in good technical condition, as they have to undergo stringent technical tests and passing every year by the authority, and must be technically fit to be on the road and Moreover, Dubai Govt. spends a lot of money in ensuring it stays a hyper city with good infrastructure such as the best roads in the world, traffic lights, flyovers, good respect for pedestrians with pavements, and walkovers, etc.. Sadly, India or Mangalore have not yet reached such high standards or norms in roads infrastructure or in implementing the civil and traffic laws laid down. The day the traffic cops put their foot down and there is no interference by any politician, etc., people in India too will automatically strictly obey the laws and regulations laid down. In Mangalore and Udupi – the Traffic Dept. must strictly act on: Driving on the wrong side, Not wearing headgear whilst driving a 2-wheeler, 3 people on a 2-wheeler, not observing speed limits, overloading of public buses run by private operators, provision of pedestrian crossings and pavements, and most of all making provisions for proper roads and road markings (like lanes, pedestrian crossings, marking speed breakers, etc., keeping an eye on bad and corrupt traffic cops, etc.

  • From B. N. Pai on Modi pays tribute to Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Rajguru

    “Salute to Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev who laid their lives for the country. Tributes to these great patriots,” tweeted Modi, who is on his first visit to Punjab after assuming office to pay homage to the freedom fighters at Hussainiwala where their last rites were performed in 1931. Pandith Nehru was stoutly opposed by the Jana Sangh and RSS for having bartered Hussainiwal from Pakistan, by giving some other territory in exchange, which required amendment to the Constitution in 1961. THOSE WHO OPPOSED NEHRU FOR HAVING PROCURED THE HOLY PLACE OF OUR MARTYRS THEN, ARE NOW POMPOUSLY PREACHING BY TWEETING! PERCEPTIONS ARE DECEPTIVE HERE! TWEET-BACK TO HAIL THE HISTORY TEACHER MODI. FOR, HISTORY IS WHAT HE SAYS AND NOT WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED!

  • From B. N. Pai on Mangaluru: Forgotten Hero Bhagat Singh Remembered on Death anniversary

    Forgotten Hero Bhagat Singh Remembered on Death anniversary. RSS and the Jana Sangh opposed, “tooth and nail”, the territorial exchange treaty by Nehru with West Pakistan in Panjab intended to get the territory of Hussainiwaal to India, where the Monument to Bhagath Singh, Raj Guru and Sukh Dev are there. They opposed the acquisition of martyr’s samadhi then, but visit it now! THE PRESENT YOUTH DO NOT KNOW THE FACTS AND HISTORY, AND THEY THINK THAT THEY KNOW EVERYTHING. THIS IS THE IRONY WITH WHICH INDIA SHOULD LIVE WITH! THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW THE HISTORY DECIDE WHAT THE HISTORY WAS AND CELEBRATE!!!

  • From Richard on Udupi: Traffic Police Begin Drive to Crack Down on Loud Horns

    I am glad to note that the Udupi Traffic Dept. is finally cracking down on the use of blaring horns and unnecessary honking, especially by those private buses – City and Service buses. These buses are fitted with air-horns with high decibels that are actually blown to glory by these drivers, especially in residential areas. I have personally brought up this topic and as well as the topic of seat belts, 3 people riding on a motorcycle, driving on the wrong side of the road, over-speeding over the years in Mangalorean.com in the hope that the Udupi Traffic Dept. will read, analyze, and implement some checking

    Nice Job! How about putting signs on either side about 100 ft from the humps to warn the drivers? That could help as well.

  • From B. Dinesh on Udupi: Traffic Police Begin Drive to Crack Down on Loud Horns

    It is hard to change the driving culture that has existed since independence. One solution may be to ban the production or import of horns exceeding certain decibels and at the same time forcing the removal of horns that exceed the specified decibels as and when vehicles are pulled over by the police. The police would need a device to measure the intensity of the horns.

  • From Sas on Udupi: If Central Government has failed to locate Rahul Gandhi, how can they Lead the Nation: Oscar

    Why should BJP bother to spend tax payers’ money to locate Rahul Gandhi? According to Oscar, if you cannot locate Rahul’s whereabouts, you are unfit to govern the country. What kind of immature statement is this coming from a prominent Congress leader! Rahul is important to only to his party and it is for them to find out where he is.

  • From B. N. Pai on Opposition should find Rahul, not flaws in BJP: Shah

    Opposition should find Rahul, not flaws in BJP: Shah. Rahul Gandhi has informed the Speaker of the Lok Sabha that he would go on leave. Congress Vice President is not absconding as the mean people in the BJP would like to make him out look to be. Amit Shah and Modi must worry if their Vice President and “jailed for corruption” accused, Yeddyurappa is absconding. Even if Shobha Karandlaje of Cfee Estate infamy is missing, they must worry! Congress is not mean like the BJP to make jailed accused like Yeddi its Vice President. Congress is not mean like the BJP to make a “Love Jihadi” person and a convict like Union Minister of State for Parliamentary and Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, a minister in Modi Cabinet. Meanness in politics is the prerogative of the BJP and the RSS and not of Congress!

    One cannot expect an “……… expert” to understand the function of an opposition party in a democracy. It is frightening that one who is ignorant of the basics of democracy is the leader of a political party.
