As an annual visitor to your vicinity, I too have enjoyed the sunsets and sunrises for few days each year. Both from those homes like yours as well as rooftops of high rises with near 360 deg view. I wish you will have only pleasures and not perils.
Rejoice today, Kallianpur Catholics; tomorrow is time for reality check. What next? As of now we all know that our Bishop is close by " But to establish altogether a new diocese in the neighborhood will have its many positives rather than".. I guess! The article written by Mr. Philip contains all the information related to the vast Mangalore diocese from beginning till now, the day today administrative dealings, especially the strong hold of Mangalore diocese is very well known! But very many "things" from the past have been changed and changed for the better and one of them is the new Udupi Diocese. Let’s hope the good work by our clergy will continue to do well for the laity especially in Udupi district which is well known in Karnataka State for its religious tolerance and brotherhood. So the reality check is going to be Positive and bright I hope. Anyways Philip Sir, as always your article on this subject is an eye opener. Thank you.
I am waiting for this service to Mumbai can i know when when you started to mumbai
Deepest sympathies from the Abreu extended family to Terry s wife, children, dad, brothers Kevin and Jude, and sister Marianne. May his soul RIP and may perpetual light shine upon him. He was a great person and a musician.
What a waste. Instead of praying for rains, they should do so for good behavior and attitudes.
This goes to say how idiotic mentality we people carry. Worst, educated people of the nation don t raise a brow to condemn the same.
Politicians in the country are no better than blind folks; leading us folks... you know where?
The “Opinion” given by Prof. Rathnakara Shetty, the CEO of BCCI, while inaugurating the new ‘UDCA” in Udupi district has been well appreciated Stressing the need to have good coaches to develop cricket and cricketing talent in our country. As far as UDCA is concerned it’s a good move to engage the young budding cricketers of our district to hone their cricketing skills and to encourage the local talents. I sincerely hope that some of our district cricketers will get a chance to play for our state and national teams in the near future. All the best for Udupi district cricket Association (UDCA)!
DK and Udupi district are neglected in sports as well including other areas. We do not have a decent cricket ground in twin districts. That will tell the status of facilities provided to the young players of our districts. Formation of UDCA is a good news for all cricket enthusiasts and budding players. I hope UDCA will support young talents and Udupi will produce some international players in coming years. Thanks for the report Snehalatha!
The party might have realised that money cannot buy every thing. experience is that peace of mind is lost and unity of the party is also lost. Remaining is only to lose power and it may not take long. Regretting now is useless.It is a good less to a party which was known for integrety , unity and discipline.
Dear Raibaab, Daryl and family.
Please accept our heartfelt condolences on the untimely death of Flecyvoni. We pray that God grant her eternal rest and may her soul rest in peace. May God give you all (the entire family)strength to bear such a great loss.

It is unbelievable that the forest department did not show up even after the leopard came out of the well with the help of a ladder and escaped in the jungle.
Dear Philip, you have covered a vast area! I liked your quote -Holy Spirit will most wonderfully guide and inspire our Leadership..." I do believe...in the service of god -there is no differentiation and levels (wealthy, poor or high profiles). Faith is a healer for believer and inspiration to achieve that we dream. Though new diocese is bit late" let's be happy that we will enjoy a better personal touch it. Keep writing such wonderful unfolds!
Pranab-da will make a good President of Republic is the judgement of 70% of the country. The President as HM QE in UK, is a titular head and does not have discretionary authority to deal with mercy petitions, a charge BJP has been making of recent Presidents for obvious reasons. Similarly, the smear campaign against Pranab-da should stop. I do not agree with his fiscal policies, but that does not make him a poodle, stooge or loyal crony of a family. He has had a socialist bent of mind and has not changed his views that much even after the decline of socialism. That is not a crime to hold those views.
Sangma pales in comparison to a distant second place, backed by equally partisan groups.
Thanks a ton to the villagers for the step they took. Had they been waiting for the forest dept., the leopard could have died. Screw you forest officials.
Know Terry when I was working @ Oberoi in Bogmalo a fantastic musician with a smile always. Also met him when Lynx was playing in Dubai. Shocked to hear about his death. RIP in Heaven dear Terry and may God give your family strength and courage to bear the great loss.
Congrats to Pranab Mukherjee on becoming the 13th President of India. The present President had been involved in a lot of foreign tours and land-grabbing controversies and had spent in crores. I hope and pray the new President will not a stereo-type but would work for the Nation with diligent and responsibility and will not waste money on un-necessary foreign tours. Wishing all Indians prosperity under the new leader of Nation.
Truly this is a wonderful news to the respective Parents. May this Holy Moth of RAMADAN bring lots of happiness to the family of Sharif Ayub. Let us also pray for people who are behind bars. May God show mercy on them and give them a chance to be better people in this beautiful World. RAMADAN KARIM to one and all.
Congratulations sirs Dr. B.R. Shetty and Mr. Sudhir Kumar Shetty on bagging the best documentary in which both of you played the major role. Dr. B.R.

Dear Philip, Thank you for the analysis. Even though almost every catholic of Udupi wanted a separate Diocese, how the Diocese develop in coming years is a subject to ponder about. I do see any prominence given to Laity people in Mangalore Diocese. Can Udupi do it and be successful in building better communities?
I fully agree with you. the Syrian church of Brahmavar became a metropotitan diocesan cathedral some three years ago, we always lack behind. then as you well said the division of Kalliayanpur church faithful between padrvadoist and romanist was a sad day in the history of Konkanni catholic community, about which no systamatic doctoral thesis has been written. a small booklet was written by Fr. John Menezes in 1996 it does not give much information except a few church views. it is high time in bringing about unity between families of Milagress of Kalyanpur and Milagres of Brahmavar. our relations are divided. how can there be unity though we belong to the church our hearts cannot be divided.
Congrats sir Dr. B.R. Shetty and Sudhir Shetty. We are very proud to see both of you in these roles.
Wonderful thoughts! When you give give generously and without murmour and also do not expect any thing . Your Master knows all about your thoughts and action. He knows to manage. When wants, begs, when does not want keeps you also away. These are all ways of life in this world as there are ups and down in the nature- earth is such, so the creatures on it. Let God s will prevail is my view. Udupi Diocese Jai Ho.
Nice article Mr. Philip. As you rightly said many questions will remain unanswered. People of Udupi diocese will have big responsibilities for the overall growth of its parishes. All these years much concentration was not given for the development of its institution other than the religious activities.It will have economic and social impacts for the overall growth of the diocese. Due to lack of vision and stubborn attitude of the clery, the growth of the parishes slow down.
I know the family very well. Very sorry to hear about Terry my sympathies to his family. Terry is a good musician very good singer great voice. I will miss you. Dez
Please send me information about this program reg how to get card . And online specility .
Am sure these sorts of decisions and wasting public money to please the rain "God" will definitely have a negative impact on the decision makers. This is not good governance at all!!
I wish I was there for this concert,really feeling sad to miss it ,ustad Rafique khan should conduct more such concerts to motivate the students towards Indian classical Music in many more schools all over the Udupi and DK district
Praise the Lord for the events that have been reported here. Lord bless this reporter for her very fine work. When enemy attacks prayer is the way to find remedy. God is all powerful and he will punish the wrong doers.May this faith grow far ad wide that what ever you pray at Holy Hill you will receive it . Praise the Lord.
Puja is good But let the political babus repent their sins of wasting precious time in the assemblies , resort camps and also fooling the people all these FOUR years. God must be angree with them. Let them at their own cost (not at Governments cost)perform poojas and pray for better environment sufficient rains and good crops. Let us all pray that these leaders mend their ways and change their behaviour, attitude and give what is better for the good of Common mans living.God Grant these leaders serenity to lead a clean and clear life and work for the good of the voters sincerely.
Total failures by any standards!! Joker of the year 2012!! We must vote educated candidates! Religion, Puja and faith is for personal life! Pity we elect gamars! They pay our money for poojas! Pooja and prayer need no money! My God....where we are heading to? People around world must be laughing at us!!! That is no concern!!! Attitude of our people is a real concern!!!! Which is way out now!!???? New minister with new fanatic idea! He feels nothing wrong about it.....Tell me about it!!! With 18.5 corers invested in public project can fetch better result than puja fee!!!! Can God from any religion save this state!! Though God is one for all religion?????
Philip,your article is exciting read.Do not retire unless you are tired.
keep engaged.Support social activities where one can enjoy life,de-stress by playing,laughing,teaching,learning from interactive activities,join helath improving programmes like yoga,walking.I watched some clips in Aamir khan\ s Satya Meva Jayate with insights for peaceful retirement in old age.keep writing to brighten our views and share with your thoughts.
It is a good idea to introduce PG courses in St. Aloysius and also great opportunity to utilize this opportunity for our konkani students. It will also beneficial for them to join any konkani institute in future. Wishing all the best
Terry was a classmate of mine at St Britto s High School, Mapuca. My sympathies to his family. A good friend with always a smile on his face. I will miss you.
PRAISE GOD AND THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO SUPPORTED AND HELPED.
This is truly a blessed place. The moment you enter that HOLY HILL you feel a kind of peace in your heart. No matter what you ask at this HOLY HILL in Faith you will receive it. I attened the last evening\ s pray service and felt so good, peace without my self and wanted to stay for long at the feet of the Lord, but it was time up for the door of the place to close...I encourage all of you to try and spend time at the HOLY HILL, Jesus will surely bless you.
Thank you Jesus, Praise you Jesus.
Wow, its very nice.. thanx to bellevision for the latest update n holy hill.... keep it up...may god bless...
A very intelligent and dedicated lawyer who has been a source of great strength and support to us. Always willing to give a lending ear to all our queries. Mr. Lobo you are the best!!!!!
Charby!! Hold the mob leaders responsible and keep them in jail for 14 years or more until they pay for all loss! There will not be any strike if law against violence is air tight! Same should be applicable for politicians calling for Bundh! Then check if India does not develop!
Very very good Amin. You are briliant boy in India..........
Dear Peter Martis : Please accept our heartfelt condolences.We pray the Almighty God give you strength and courage to overcome this loss. May her soul rest in eternal peace.
Good job Micky and Dolphy. Hope other oranisation and associations will follow your example.
Operation Lotus was undertaken for back door entry of power hungers. Anything done out of the way will back fire one day and will cost dearly. That has been proved now in Karnataka.
I saw Aradhana film and felt very much great, in the world of love. The songs and the dialogs were super. "Anand" was the film and the role of Rajesh Khanna the legend, prompted me to name my first Son after that -Anand and thus not only the film but also the role of Anand played by RK become immortal. I do not know how to condole the death of this Super star who contributed immensely through his role in Indian Hindi films, which are going to be immortal. The only question I have is " Phir Kab Miloge babu Mushayee?". Bhagwan ke Ghar milenge,kal nahim Parsom".
May his soul rest in peace.
Indeed a great project or the Rotarians to serve the rural people. The outcome of the large crowed s presence might have elivated the service spirits of the Rotarians. The spirit of service of the Meical Persons present and the people who have availed their services, is amply rewarded and they will earn God s grace too. Congratulations to the rotarians of shankerapura and cheers to the medical Team of KMC Manipal.
Rotary Shankerpura has been involved in a lot of humanitarian, charitable, medical camps, Psychiatric camps, eye testing, etc. Emirates Pangalites too doing a lot of charity work from U.A.E. and Emirates Pangalites taken a great initiative on the occasion of their 10th Anniversary to join with Rotary Sharnkerpura. Thanks Rotary Shankerpura for joining us and wish both Rotary as well as EP all success. Thanks Dolphy/Mickey for your great initiative for this medical camp.
In Karnataka we have spine-less government and these peoples are taking advantage of these gundas for their benifits and votes. We have a law in our country but in our Karnataka and esp. Mangalore there is only Gunda Raj. Hats off to Goa CM at least he has a sense to weed out these dirty leaders who want to fool people in the name of religion and gain popularity.
This CM is smart and intelligent. Looks like he is not interested in communal clashes, disturbances and cheap fanatic votes. I wish our state BJP specially Mangalore and Udupi unit learns valuable lesson towards peace and ongoing harmony from GOA CM. All the best to educated GOA CM!
Dear Raya Baab Daryl please accept our heartfelt condolences. May her soul rest in peace.
