We have begun to not awe-struck by cricket and films to a diverse field of entertainment. In fact, the dismal performance in hockey should be veiwed in positive light, as the non-traditional sports are attracting sponsors and viewers, cheerleaders and fans. It is like Ouur late Abrose in Belle giving up frog race and sack race and introduing volleyball, kho-kho, track events, pull-ups, and a lot more while I was still at the high school.
Our region should produce some sprinters, for this to happen, the hills are still around, but the will is to be cultivated. In my time hills and will were there, but opportunity was not.
Francis, you have done well, to compile and add personal touch. That is why I too add a little more of personal touch, though at risk of being a couch potato for now..
At the beginning of this year, being there in London to watch and cheer was on mind, the plans for which had to be shelved. I chose bread, butter and more over the pleasure such events bring us.
I am a Samba afficianado. I lo-o-o-ve girls too; spicier the better. both dancing and crooning ones. I am also a Carioca, an honorary one, bestowed on me ten years ago for my love of Caipirinha cocktails and carefree love of life (and death. So, I must preserve myself till 2016 for Rio, my favorite city in the world. It is time I begin looking for a girlfriend earnestly from today to house me since hotels are going to be crazily priced. Unless, I plan on camping out on Copacabana or Maracona. Which is not a bad idea. One does not need too many clothes and does not need to bathe much anyways while in Brazil..:D
About Indian Olympics future, Indians have woken up t the glamor, money and prestige the competetion brings. It is my hope India will bid at least for 2028 edition and prepare for it from now, though 2032 seems a possibility. From London, India can only look forward; not backwards. The money is there, our focus is shifting from roti, kapda and makaan.
Nice report on the event LONDON OLYMPIC 2012.Very informative narrated well.Looking forward to view more articles from you in this website.Wish all the best keep writing.
Great job. I wish you all the best dear BV team. Thank you and God bless you.

great thought.....great initiative. A great platform for innocent faces to face the worldly faces. A learning curve to take cue from innocent faces.....for thiers is the kingdom of God
These youngsters are children of queen Elizabeth and not of Rani Abbakka Devi. If they were children of Rani Abbakka Devi, they would have come wearing "langoti" or "dhothi" instead of pants. Thrash them mercilessly. Your god fathers are there to save you.
Aamir Khan, in one of his column's wonders, What is the point of having a great G.D.P. if as a society we are unhealthy.. Of course he was talking about our health sector. I have read many many articles in response to the Morning Mist episode. Most of them are emotional outbursts like teach them a lesson "thrash them" ostracize them etc. Will this solve the problem? I liked Mr. Mudartha' s analysis. The fruits of development (!) should reach everyone. If an elected govt. can not ensure this, why do we need that entity?
Excellent initiative BV Team. Hats off to you guys for this novel idea. Yes bring smile to hundreds of kids and their parents by show casing their most adorable kids.
I am sure you will be flooded with most beautiful pics of their cute kids and we will be lucky to see them all online. I am sure online voting at the end will play a crucial role. anyways, all the best for parents with their little ones. Come forward in large numbers and let us see your children s beautiful photographs. Winning/Loosing doesn t matter. just come and participate. Thanks BV for this new venture and wish you all S U C C E S S....GOOD LUCK.
Thanks Victor for quoting scriptures, but many today do not like to be reminded of such quotes when self-interests are threatened.
Amit, if you are who I think you are, you have 12.5% of my genes and that is why you came upon that apt Kenyan epitaph. I vaguely recall a tomb in Nyeri, but during my next trip to Mount Kenya, I will look it up again. Thanks for a great share. Change within, not without is how change managers codify the edict for others..:
Cynthia, Do I need Mangalore? No. When Mangalore has paid the RIGHT price, they will find a savior. Yuge yuge..as the mantra goes
Alphonse, be informed that Mangalore jail was built by British and can hold under 250 inmates, even if they are cramped like sardines in Madhavaraj s caning factories. It is overflowing with twice as many already. Another riot, police will have to draw lots to select whom they should release. Creating more jailbirds is not the answer is what a arisen Mangalore should seek.
That is right Melwyn. The crocodiles love slush pools of confusion and fear, while splashing around to make it slushier..
Dear Team BV, wish you all the best. You all doing a commendable job. Keeping serving the society more and more.
Thank you once again.
Good speeches and grievances, democracy at work in rural area.
tough luck, Philip..the age bar is 5 years..yep, good luck cute kids. I will await their mute squid contest for 60 and above..:D
(I would not canvass, but a few local beauties in Doha who will give a tough fight!)
Thanks Amith for sharing what you have read. This is exactly what Jesus meant when he said, "Be ye perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect". He did not say, "Make them perfect, as their heavenly Father is perfect".
Koels (nightingales) relish the fruits of noni tree (morinda citrifolia), commonly known in Mangalore and also in Bantval, as "Rhanga rook". The bark of the noni tree is used to prepare a dicoction with "oda sal" (bark of the banyan tree)and other ingredients to treat "dakchem", a type of sickness akin to jaundice. Planting a noni tree in your compound will not only attract many koels throughout the day, (which will save your riped fruits for your dinner table) but also it will be useful as a medicinal plant. It is said the noni juice is being used for over two thousand years by the Polynesian people.
I was thinking of putting my daughter to PA college for B.E in Biotech she has written her CET but after coming across this incident we have to give it a second thought. Can anyone pls reply back to me is it safe to send my daughter there we have to keep her in hostel so pls kindly someone give the true details of this college. Thank you and my condolences to Mr. Ali and family.
Very well said , Read the following poem in Kenya ..wish to share it..
When I was Young and Free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world , As I grew older and Wiser, I discovered the world would not change , so I shortened my sight somewhat and decided to change only my country.
But it, too seemed immovable . As I grew Into my Twilight years in one desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me ,but alas they would have none of it.
And now as i lie on my death bed , I suddenly realize : If I had only changed myself firstthen by example I would have changed my family.Then from that inspiration and encouragement,I would then have been able to better my country , and who knows , I may even have changed the world .(it was found at the tomb of a monk in 1600AD)
very well described article Mr. Philip. You have immense knowledge and need really big heart to express. Mangalore needs people like you. God Bless
surely God has blessed us with rains.
now we have to also take care of our people in their need of being saved from floods
Wow, great initiative sir. very interesting to know a lot about birds. yeah, some times they are noisy and difficult to handle but it is the nature and we it all after all. good pics (including birdbath) and maybe inspiration to others to venture into this hobby. As per Peacocks - in our village there are plenty and are visible all the time esp. in the rainy season... Look forward for more articles sir. thanks a lot
"Actions and not words are need of the day" Yes sir, I am in total agreement to this point. it is no use we make a lot noise and no action. A very well thoughtful and based on current reality (sadly) of our Mangalore. We need to wake up and our leaders as you said do soul searching and put some good work to society. finally, we reap what we sow and last one is fantastic: "Grapes are not known to grow on neem tree" that explains it all. Well done dear Phillip. let there be new beginning.. thanks a lot and Hats off to you.
Very well said Mr. Philip. When the rapid changes takes place in the society both in terms of economically and socially , it will lead to the confusion as well fear.
I feel it will take some more time to settle down this volatile nature.
Today, the whole nation (well, almost) prayed for him and a Gold, and missed a breath when a silver was earned. Good luck, next time, Sunil and India.
India needs a lot of cheering news in the current gloomy state of affairs, to feel good.
Impressive visuals, Thanks John for a nice illustrative article.
HA HA HA, I am sure HJV are not aware of this protest or else they would have resort to moral policing...
yeah, it is one way of protesting and highlighting the grievances to the concerned departments/authorities. all the best.
Our community must be careful not to button-hole JR as our candidate. he did well to consciously stress his secular credentials, his vision for India as an inclusive society and his stance that religion and politics should not mix. Vote for JR
Subhanallha... it s great news for our community .... Thank you verry much dear all member those who worked for the constructing big jamia masjid in ududpi ...

It is really good. yes but it needs a good practice esp. those are thorough in writing proper konkani in Kannada script, for them it will be little easier but for new comers/writers it needs good practice where is proper pronunciations are concerned. Anyways, let us try and practice as much as possible and get used to it Those who do not have Baraha or Nudi, they can type in Romi (english) and convert to Kannada.. but as I said need a lot of practice...
Party is done, result is achieved now. Who is pumping air to you boys? CBI is free for your silly case now? How you all can take girls to a lonely place where surrounding is common labor people and traditional Hindus? Future while making party please take care and take care of the feelings of the surrounded people. If you all are legally doing the parties where common mentality public accept the idea, then do it, but keep a armoured security. But fast growing Mangalore, younger generation do not forget that still old mentality, old, poor senior citizens, following their traditions still live amongst you. Take this is as a lesson to be cautious and improvement.
Do you give treatment for prostate enlargement and it will be cured by ayurvedic medicine?this coarse for how many days.
Relived my childhood. thanks Ejjab taking me back to my chidhood days.
Beautifull moodubelle-padubelle river. Arun did you get any fish! best catters team moodubelle !!Once again beautiful pics of the rainy season, thank you Dr Eugene sir for the beautiful report.
As long as sale of beef is banned or frowned upon in India, we in the middle east get to eat it at half the price of similar products from Europe, USA and Australasia.
It would be interesting to know how and why AK Subbiah, the pioneer of Anti-beef agitation changed his stance and now lobbying against Karnataka Cow Slaughter Ban Act, now pending for Presidential Review.
(The Kerala beef Chilly Fry is tastier)
Now, this is a fit case for Manjula-akka to write a report about..
How would a 14-year old girl in captivity make a decision out of free choice? This is the kind of arrogant humbug that breeds fear the other side of the border. The international community, so vocal in Syria, must put an end to this.
Everyone is out to save the youth. Who will save the youth from these crocodiles?
Two passages in your report caught my attention: "There has been signs of the youth becoming more and more directionless..". I have heard that said my my grandmother about my father, my father about me and am at risk telling it about my children..Somewhere, the adults including clergy need to grow up and accept that a different direction not to their liking is not necessarily directionless.
Second passage comes at the end: "While those who had their vehicles could return home without much trouble to have social celebration of the feast, others had to depend on buses or rickshaws..:
Any of those lucky vehicle owners ran volunteer services to ferry less fortunate to their homes? well, this age is not for saints, may be..
The Chairperson of SWC knows everyone else s jobs perfectly except her own..Pity, oh, Woman!
There lies a hint of a party, folks, to gate crash into, bring out the bugles and beer..:D
Well done Kishore Barkoor and HM. this concept really works great. thanks Bellevision for making this interview available for Belleviion readers. yes, we need a very strong leader and time is running out. Unity is strength and now we have three contestants, Ivan, JR and Dolphy for the congress seat for next assembly elections. Whom we choose, who is most able leader, who can deliver the goods and who can develop and fix our problems and most importantly who will fix these moral police is a million dollar question. Let us wake up, let us chose a leader we want not just for name\ s sake but a able and very strong leader... choice is yours...

Good rains is a good sign and thank God for it. However, the rains are not new and every year it is expected and hence pre-cautions need to be taken well in adv. secondly reg sea erosion, there was a report in this site a month back explaining the true picture and what action to be taken. Unfortunately our system is so much corrupt nothing works. Every one works for his own goal and fill his stomach and not for society. At least in future our authorities will take some firm action to stop the sea erosion at some critical points/areas. Some organization has to take a serious note of this and get the authorities take for task.
