Dr. V.S. Acharya was a honest politician and was a bridge to bring common people into politics. We lost a kind disciplined leader.
By the untimely death of Dr. VS Acharya, Udupi District lost one of its finest politicians who really cared for the district. Late Dr. Acharya had been an honest and sincere person and worked for the betterment of Udupi District. May his soul rest in peace.
What a way to go, for a karma-yogi; work till last breath. Now, he can rest eternally.
Very impressed with both the talent, and passion for micro-photography, through which I can see what I can t see with my own eyes.
On behalf of committee members and the members of PWA,I thank Belle vision for your support in the form of great publicity in your website,presence of your members on the day of our event and beautiful coverage of entire tournament.May God bless BELLEVISION.
When I was a student at MGM college, and VS Acharya contested and lost the KLA elections-1972 to Mrs. Madvaraj, it was common knowledge that cabaret dances were big money spinners, and provided great night life to well-heeled students and rich classes. Well heeled have their own culture, not what we refer as "Indian". Even your local leaders with their allegiance to three major political parties, have not defined what Indian really means to them or their parties. Because, Indian is not dead static but living, changing, evolving and free to think entity constantly wanting to experiment, try, fail and learn. In this context, Bhat is right. Mistakes were made, and will have to learn from them. But to, put a full stop to these festivals is like setting the house on fire, to kill rodents.
The solution is so simple, you would laugh at it! Make India a tax haven. Tax havens are least corrupt. (Anna Hazare, please note and fast till death to make us a tax haven country).
Did you add up the rupees that flowed into St. Mary s island during the Spring Zouk aka rave party? Money goes where your mouth is, (and often where stomach, and what is beneath is). The least it likes is the government vaults. People do not trust their judgement in selecting their rulers. (when god had selected the rulers, they had little choice, those rulers would chop your head in the name of god).
When moving from a highly taxed, regulated country to a tax haven with unregulated business activity, the culture as we think it was, and imagine it should be, would see some shocking rocking jolts..like honesty (especially public honesty) may become our culture! (now who likes honesty as culture?)
Walking the dog, while carrying a TV, might be better..jokes apart, while accepting that domestic chores are a great way to remain fit, and one should do one s own chores regularly, with advancing age climbing stairs is not advised, take the elevator, if available.
Congratulations to Santhan and Veronica for organising such a mega sports event.
It is a great and proud moment for all Mangaloreans to be part of this grand Post Centenary celebration and we must thank God Almighty for He has bestowed upon us so many blessings and today Mangalorean Catholic Community stands unique in the world. As said above our Bishops priests, nuns from Mangalore contributed tremendously to world in the field of education, service, charity and many other issues related to the common needs of the people. It was also nice to see all community gathered to celebrate this grand event. Thanks Mr. Tauro bringing these live pics for us to see and admire our dear Mangalore. I hope our CM and Union Minister stick to their promises and let us live in peace and harmony. Thanks Bellevision for publishing this important news so that all Mangaloreans world wide can view and enjoy the proud moment in the history of our dear mother land Mangalore.
Great Job Veronica and team. You require a lot of patience and capacity to organize such events. sports is one event which brings all the hearts together. congratulations all Pamboorians in Dubai. Keep the ball moving. Good Luck.
Excellent report of the 125 years Jubilee function. May God bless you for the wonderful efforts of coverage,Mr John.
Mr. Bhatt thinks he can easily fool people. Why he wants to clarify after a week and how can he say nothing happened there when the whole world knows what happened. He is the one who organized it, He is the one who took money and made all arrangements now he is pretending to be a saint. Good try Mr. Bhatt.
Mr Bhat you are 100%correct,next time you will not win,Better to go and join yeddy,
"If our values, morals and culture is going to be brought down by such stray behavior, we think our culture is so week". Yes Mr. Philip Mudartha i liked your comment. It is much provoking.
good report good photos akil.It seems to be a good programe.Akil you will do good hosting Keep it up..good work get together by Konkani Samudai jayanagar.All the best
What I am alluding is the dilemma of man-kind, not my personal emotions. Mankind wants progress, growth, economic development, higher standards of living, and economic prosperity. The ultimate objective is gratification and pleasure in a holistic way. Unfortunately, the act is often contrary. Hence, the doubts, hesitations, vacillations and the revisionist movements to preserve our way of life, culture, and environs. The challenge for us is to strike the right pace of development, while altering the environs to the least. Will we really rise to the challenges? That is the thought I intended to provoke in the minds of our leaders such as yourself.
Yes, Victor, you are right; I spoke of Newtons third law. The laws of physics do not work in metaphysics
None cared till media broke this sleaze story. None highlighted the creativity, energy, hard work, talent,dedication and organization of hundreds of artists, musicians, and support staff, not to mention the civic administration efforts. The festival was a fusion of western, regional, local, tribal and ethnic music and arts, and intended to be so and marketed and sold to an audience that is not culture-blinded, is accepted. That, among campers, some will break rules and swim, smoke grass, flirt, romance and even consort is a rule and not an exception. If our values, morals and culture is going to be brought down by such stray behavior, we think our culture is so week. It should have collapsed, for dogs, birds and other species do it in the open, and we all are aware. How can our culture get polluted, if someone drank, smoked, danced and fornicated out of our sight. Our kids did not go and had no access. If our adults went there, they went by choice, and not force. Are we saying there are no adults in India? And moral policing are only adults? It is political posturing..
The political opportunism of diocesan church hierarchy comes out loud and clear in the guest list, more than the love for the poor, for whom houses are being built. No controversy there!
The Army Chief can now retire in honor. He has sought justice from the apex civilian court, it ruled against his petition and he accepted its verdict. All is fair and just. It does not matter if he has a biological DOB and an Army records DOB.
(I too have two DOB. It s my birthday tomorrow officially, while my baptismal DOB shows it two months after. I had a chance to reconcile before I registered for SSLC exam, but did not do so, because I did not then afford to settle dues my parents owed to the parish. The parish refused baptismal certificate).
The General was not in my shoes. He was born in military hospital, had access to this real DOB, but chose to enter other DOB. He may maintain it was an error, but someone else can argue that it was intentional and designed for profit)
Really thought provoking article. I think you challenged Newton, not Einstein. I enjoy your writing.
Desperate attempt by the BJP government to yield their vote bank in local bodies...
very interesting ! JVTauro s creative innovations are really appreciable and also impressive. Congrats best wishes

The district administration charging 5000 bugs to the foreigners simply for nothing? St. Mary s island is much far away from the main land. Let the foreigners have fun!
And our dear poli ticians,please promote such tourism of rave parties in our main land also.
Thanks to Dr.Eugene D'Souza for discovering Mr.John Tauro's Budget Mane. The artifacts that he has collected are displayed tastefully and is pleasing to the eye. It is very interesting why he had to name 'Budget Mane' to his house.

You are simply wonder ful, no matter what the reactions to your comments or write ups. Be cheerful and the world will be with YOU ! You are a great Mudartha inded.
Mr Louis Lobo, to me is Devegowda of Udupi Catholic community. When ever we met I used to addes him like that and he used to enjoy it. I am not able to catch him up in his activities and hence I only envy him. His fighting spirit is exemplary and it indeed opportune to read about him in the annals of Belle vision a multifacited personality, worth emulating. Good luck Mr Lobo, in your endeavours.
