In the opinion of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, Chairman of Constitution Drafting Committee, Grama Sabhas are ‘a sink of localism, a den of ignorance, narrow-mindedness, and communalism”. Grama Panchayats were not part of his vision. However, Mahatma Gandhi insisted and as a compromise, Directive Principals of State Policy provided that in future state governments transfer such powers and authority to enable them to govern themselves.
Until the Grama Sabha is about a shared public sense of public duty and not of individual or collective rights, Dr. Ambedkar will be vindicated.
During the struggle for freedom from British rule, Mahatma Gandhi stressed the need for village swaraj, envisioning every village as an independent republic. He wrote: “My idea of village swaraj is that it is a complete republic, independent of its neighbors for its own vital wants, and yet interdependence for many others in which dependence is a necessity”.
Under the national constitutional provisions and Karnataka State laws, can the Belle Grama Sabha guarantee the ‘rights’ as people interpret? Speaking of ‘rights’ is an attitude acquired by those who are lucky to have a sugar daddy to foot their bills. Someone else always pays? How can anyone live off on someone else’s money and resources, and yet preserve freedom?
Freedom requires everyone to pay for the public goods and servcies that he enjoys or expects to enjoy.
I partly agree with the views of the group. there are laws which are sufficient to control the ills including corruption. If anLokayukta acts are inmplemented and timely corruption could be reduced.Janalokapal is for higher cadres who are not covered in these laws. Let parliament take its course in a procedural manner so that the Act is not challeged in Court.

deepavali is a festival of lights. Let this Deepavali elighten us and all those who are in the dark for want of fair reasoning andundestanding, living in prejudices and vengeance. Light a lamp in the dark and keep it at higher pedestal so that those who look at it see from its light and live in light.
I wish all the viewers and our brotheren who believe nd celebrate Deepaavali as a festival of rejoicing, a VERY HAPPY DEEPAVALI A PROSPEROUS YEAR ahead.
of course the demand is met, kisne kaha demand is not met, but there is no indication of it being started, the date is extension of train will be notified "later" (only after 5 to 10 years! or when general elections comes on the heads of the elected representatives, whichever is earlier and pending approval of SWR headquarters in Kerala. Correct?
Thank you people of Belle for courageously taking on these leaders. From the photos one could see that many ladies and senior citizens have attended this event which shows their concern and injustice done by these leaders.
Only giving big lectures and talking from the law books will not solve any problems. These leaders should work honestly and without selfish motives. Grama Sabhe is a wonderful opportunity for the public to air their opinion, dissent and now when the heat is on, these leaders will realize how they are accountable to the public who voted them. But it is funny to see those involved in wrong doings are on the stage and are made decision makers in this democratic set up.
Anner, Your English is better than Hemphil, well It looks the same to me, only the difference is the letter case.. Anyway, I run a hotel business, you are welcome to join as a Waiter.... Thanks for taking interest..
It is very good to see a large number of villagers attended in te Grama Sabha. The discussions were also good. At the village level such heated discussions and answers to the problems are O.k. The behaviour of the villagers was tolerable as compared to the State Assembly and that of parliament whee highly educated and experienced political leaders participate. I congratulate the Grama sabha leaders and participants for their active participation.
In my opinion Ward sabha must be held and the resolutions/decisions are required to be discussed and adopted in the Panchayath Sabha. all these technicalities must be clevrly handled by the Panchayath Secretary guiding the President and othe memebrs. There is scope for improvement in holding or conducting of the meatings. Well done President and members of our Belle grama panchayath.Keep it up.
First and foremost problem in village is, people don't know about their rights. People are not aware of what all kind of facilities can acquire under different level of departments under grama panchayat and different levels. Regarding Church illegal documentation case, it is better to approach nearest Lokayuktha. Otherwise, it is simply waste of time waiting for the justice from belle people. May our Saint Lawrence open the minds of the people.
Dear Hempil, we all know who is Hempil and who is Anner please dont fool us by the way if you like to join anybody s business nobody will welcome you that s sure because you are a dishonest person.
Again its a waste of time for all of us specially bellevision readers. I can not find any valid points discussed during the meeting except church land issue arguments. Where is the list of the developments they have done so far?
ALL MEMBERS ARE CORRUPTED . . . . PETT GALATE YEDDE NA . .. JUICE PARLE , FRUITS THINLE . . JEEVAGE YEDDE .. .

Dear Dr. Eugene,
Very interesting piece of writing and history. Pictures are very nice. Thanks for your time and sharing the information.
Excellent Unity and good Job done by Moodubelle parishioners with the able Leadership of our Parish priest Fr. Joswey Fernandes. Keep up the good work and unity among all our parishioners as one family along with our fellow non-Christian family s also. Mr. Mukunda Mams presence in the church activities are much appreciated as we all know he is a great devotee of our patron St. Lawrence and here are the his own words says .. I does not mind making donations to the church as i have been abundantly blessed by St. Lawrence. Being a Non-Catholic ... Indeed a great faith in our patron saint -St. Lawrence. May St. Lawrence bless all of us and keep always united.
Beautiful pictures and a very good article. Thank you Dr. Eugene.
Dear Fraky,i am really happy to read about you and prowd of you.AS a classmate(Bench mate)i wish u all the best for your future career.Thank u bellevision for publishing about such a wonderful guy.
Hemphil Dubai, Udupi:- you keep going brother. Don't bother what world is talking. People can not digest the truth. @Kamath er can I also join your business? My English is little bit good???????
I am sorry to note the developments in ANNA Camp. In the Bible it is said, Jesus told those who brought that women who was a sinner, to punish her.But Jesus told them, throw stones at her who have not sinned The men who bought her to Him left one by one and the woman alone stood there. Jesus told her woman, where are they who accused you of adultery (charged with sin)? and Jsus said to her, I too will not judge you. Go your way..."
The Anticorruption movement and fasting by Anna and others including Prashanth Bhushan, Kejrival and Kiran Bedi are now facing accusations. If so how can they demand Mr P.M (or Parliament) to pass the Lokapal Bill where sevaral party members must support. How could Anna Hazare to campaign against Congress at Haryana elections by distributing C.D.S? Has Annaji has got any moral right to do so? Central government is UPA in which congress is a party. How any one blame Soniaji who is a congress party Chair person.Has these leaders have claim to be clean and call themselves as samaritans? I had opposed Annaji s anti congress campaign at the outset and later JN Santhosh Hegde voiced descent on the action of Annaji. Anna Hazare has lost aal his credibility.
It is enlightenment to BJP leadership. They were thinking that they can do any thing and talk any thing and accuse in any way.It would be wise to end the janachethana yathra, else it would mean Bratachar( corruption) encouraging Yathra, self defeating and defrauding and cheating the supporters. Better end the yathra and take rest.
All views are very nice specially bahubali gomateshwara...
nice pictures and very good tour report...thanks to Dr Eugene dsouza
for nice article From Kunjarugiri to Dharmasthala journey
Hemphil, You are giving excuses, you talk as if we are from some other English country. Let me remind you that we are also very much Indians. You are a black dot on India. We are shameful to call you as Indian, Because of people like you only russel peters makes comedy about India. For heavens sack stop commenting your meaning less sentences and senseless thoughts
HEMPHIL - what do you mean? If your English is bad, don t say that Indians are Uneducated.. They will rip your skin off... India is the mother country for many scholars and very few dumb s like you.. ! if you are so proud to be Indian, why do you stay/post fix your name with DUBAI ? Why don t you come over to India and run a business with me? Let me see if you are useful at least there...
HEMPHIL, for your knowledge a well educated Indian can speak ENGLISH as good as a person from USA, UK and AUSTRALIA!!! its your mistake that u never took studies so seriously .
In that case why he wants to visit most educated district (Mangalore / Udupi) in the state! Are they fooling again in return for more communal violence in otherwise a peaceful twin district? May be they are aware of more takers for future chaos destructions.
A very good movement by the youth of Udupi. They have burnt the affigy of the corrupt leaders symbo lically. Do they mean that the inner urge of giving up bribe at all times? The effigy represents thier urge to not to give bribe and to fight corrption, the protest has real mmeaning. Otherwise the leaders covered in the programme have , to my knowledge, lables of corruption, and the programme is to get for them media coverage? If this is not true and the protest is of true reflections I eartily congratulate the youth for their unique protest to draw the attention of the corrupt leaders so that the society will draw some relief from Udupirevenue authorities.Any way , good spirits, keep it up.
This is a very good programme for the youth with human values The art of living with human values as the these contemplates, if imbibed with right sonpirit and followed, it would make the lives of the camp participants, sublime. In that direction the the theme and the contents coverred by the speakers, Mr Marathe and others are very appropriate and good for the participants. The ducational Institutions organising such programmes would build up good citizen for India and to the world.may I call upon others to follow? complimentns to Vidya dayiini Institutions kaup and the people behind it and wish them allthe best.
MR.KAMATH MUMBAI,I JUST WANT SAY ONE WORD TO YOU AN ALL YOUR FRIENDS TRUTH ALWAYS BITTER.....SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH IS NOT GOOD COZ AM FROM INDIA...JAI HO INDIA....
The Agitation of PDOs has a good reason, for their are attacked from all concerned to their jobs. Without prejudice,I say that the corrupt set up and the political rivalry must be the background. Therefore the CEO must have a discussion with all the PDOs exclussively and understand their complaints. Their association Leaders may only be present and observers. understanding their problems , per person, the CEO will be able to find appropriate solutions. The experience of Mr Sharma , the CEO is cappable of resolving the problems for the satisfaction of all concerned. The PDOs and their association must cooperate with the CEO.
Dear Mr.Philip Mudartha,
Your are the only one who has written in this issue so far in support of Gaddafi. He killed many innocent people in his 42 years of dictatorship and he would have killed had he have been alive.It is the people s wroth which led to this situation.
the world knows what he did during his regime. Hope the current people will bring democracy and peace to this Libyan country.
B.Nayak- calls from Gulf? ... Hemphil - have guts to call again..trying to show your impotency?..God! you are one crazy person on Bellevision with no sense of writing or understanding watever other say..You are a punishment of God!!
Rohit - You misinterpreted Dumphil s comments. He didn t like Hemphil s comments.. Hello Hemphil, Did you just talk about education? please join some English learning courses.. It s a humble request..
Ambigous Hemphil's son Dumphil has started commenting now.Jai ho Hemphil.Wish u all the best
Well said B.Nayak, HEMPHIL's comments does not make any sense but entertaining. If he continues the same for some more time, I would not be surprised to see Hemphil in the list of commedy cartoon charecters. All the best HEMPHIL, Long want to go.
@HEMPHIL , yaya only u r educated na, we are tho UNPAD GAVARS rite, hehe as usual BJP spokesperson is doing bla bla!!! and we want development, irrespective of which party does it only developing Bangalore is not developing Karnataka!!!

God Bless you and your family. alphonse, pangla
Who is harassing them? their seniors, the elected people s representatives, the general public? who? And why?
The wait is over; Reach 1 of Phase 1 flagged off after 5 years and 4 months from our Prime Minster Manmohan Singh laid the foundation stone in June 2006. Let us hope that all reaches and phases of the network as shown in the article, are operational by the projected schedule of end-2014. And costs are maintained at estimated 25000 crores.
The Public private partnership model with a foreign debt as project finance and state and central government contributing equity (15% each in this case), to a fund a public enterprise
should succeed only when citizens pay for the services and also do not vandalize the assets.
Though the brute was destined to what befall him, the method of his execution- without any due process of law- does not bode well for the incoming administration. It is a stigma that the new rulers will have to deal with if Libya should see rule of law instead of tribal justice
There is nothing great about this project, this is being delayed 2 years from the actual schedule. Let me remind you This project is not funded by Yeddyurappa or BJP. We pay tax and that money goes for such development work. And to paln and supervise such work ministers get paid more than what they deserve. So lets not give credit to the politicians. We should be thankfull to the people (Including us ) who pay taxes despite of knowing that the money will be looted by this corrupt politicians.
DEAR KAMATH,STEPHEN,WILSON,NAYAK,I KNOW ITS DIFFICULT TO DIGEST BJP S DEVELOPMENTS BUT ALL KARNATAKA PEOPLE ARE NOT FOOLS OR UNEDUCATED LIKE YOUR PEOPLE,YOUR PEOPLE ONLY CAN SEE CORUPTION ONLY....JAI HO BJP....SHAME ON YOU AN YOUR PARTY....

Bellevision, wish you could support kannada script while commenting.. please provide this feature exclusively for your famous commentator HEMPHIL...
Dear Wilson D souza, what Mr. Kamath said right Hemphil entertaining all readers by writing his comments with his fake name and defending his comments by another name, not only that making phone calls from Gulf threatening those person, tell me who is the most shameless person in the world, naturally this person name goes on guinness book record, this person has good talents in the politics why cant leave his posh job from Dubai join BJP jai ho India.
