Nice to see the Kavita Ghosti in our Belle Parish.Great work by Sannu and Ronald Saby.Cheers to all who attended the programe.Thanks a lot Mr. Ronald Saby for your generous help towards Bellevision.
Kavita Ghoshti or something related to literature, poetry is something unheard in Belle and I am sure its a pleasant surprise for the people of Belle. Congratulations to the organizers of Bellevision Kavita Trust for taking this mature and bold step. Good job by Sannu Monis, Ronald Sebastian and Melvyn. Our children need more of such quality events in Belle. When we train our children and youth in such qualitative skills the whole generation can benefit from it. Jai ho Bellevision.
Congratulations Edward and the entire group for the success of the Drama. Nice to see my brother Edward acting in the drama. Keep up the great job. All the very best for the future events.

Happy to know that Konkani play Toira Rau was staged in Auckland (New Zealand)in the presence of quite a large number of Konkani enthusiasts. Thanks to Edward Barboza for the report and pictures.
This City is also having very important Worshiping Places like Ganesh Temple, Gaondevi Temple, Balaji Temple, Aayappa Temple, Swaminarayan Temple, Christian Churches, Jain Temples etc. nothing about these are mentioned.Also this city has many good colleges schools which is the main reason for the high literacy rate of this city.
A noble act of expressing recording gratitude to the Lord by the Konkani Prayer group, worth more than prayers. Mr Mrs Francis
Mr. Dayashankar, Sour graphes, uh? Can't digest the 60 s land reform act? Due to the implemenation of that act today people have prospered, country has progressed. Learn to live and let live.
Guatam buddha says "greediness and temptation is the root cause of all sorrows" .Over exploitation of land with heavy dose of pestiCides and fertilizers,soil has become useless.The best remedy may be use of new land and with new plants of jasmine.We too had 50 plants of jasmine flowers but arround 35 years back,there were no such plant deseases.Recently i had been to moodubelle and shocked to see price of Rs.800/-for one pack containing 4 chendu’s.
Between 1970-1995, I toured this region four times, before the dawn of digital era. I would love to go again and again. Yet, from what you have captured, time seems to have stood still. The temple marvels have stood the test of time and its abuse. While the touts are making money, the ASI is not making any. It should charge reasonable entry fees, and protect the heritage better from vandals and thieves.
For the Plant Shrinking problems there are few solutions. First of all instead of using more insecticides and artificial fertilizers, use naturally available alternatives. It is suggestible to make new plants for every 10 years, so that the new plants will give more yield. Earlier days we were using VIPUL a tonic for plant growth, even now also in AMWAY a product called NUTRIPLANT is available which adds more strength and productivity to the plant. In Belle Rama Bhat and Dominic Nazreth sell AMWAY products, which people can buy from them. For the result verification purpose people can contact my father Mr. Albert Sequeira who uses this product regularly during the treatment of ‘Koleroga’ to the Areca Nut plants, which are yielding fully. Even we use same product for black-pepper plants, mango trees, vegetables and jasmine plants.
well, Mr. castellino can give back the land to the original owner and relax then.........

I don’t understand one thing, who ever did this they didn’t broke the Statue.They didn’t through the Stones on St.Therese. They have been did this to whole Christian Community. But I Am not Surprised that none Of these people get caught and get punished. Now this is the time to show our unity to the people. Who dares to do these things against us. If you didn’t take any decision now, soon in future we will be stoned on the Road. Our houses will be Stoned.Im Sure still we will be sleeping in our houses just talking about Our Pride.
We offered our special prayers on all souls day on nov 2. Our faith also remind us to pray for unknown souls. May God grant eternal peace to the departed soul and may ramannas soul rest in peace.
A well known personality to every families of the region. Her caring kind words would give confidence to every pregnant woman consulting her. A great loss to the community. May her soul rest in peace.
Lets the best team win
It is said Old is Gold. Here all the old and rural cultural values and Fr.Vaz has also recalled the old traditional celebrations of Marriage functions and so on.. a very nice programme for the benefit of the younger generation to keep alive the Konkani culture and ussages and traditions.Thanks to Ancy Paladka for his effective coverage.
Wonderful coverage Dr. Eugene.Nice to see all the pictures and details information.I refreshed my old memories.Thanks a lot Dr.Eugene.
Shri Shirtady William Pinto is an
one man army who has dedicated his
life for the service of the down trodden,less fortunate and the exploited.When the land reformation
act came into effect in 1974,Fr.Mark Valder published a book written by Shirtady William Pinto,which created a record by selling more than 35,000 copies.
Since then he has been a voice for the voiceless.Great orator who has
been visiting every nook and corner of Karnataka to educate people and the youth.
Dr.Eugene D Souza has done a great job. He was a popular writer/novelist during my high school days.Many of his novels were
published by the late Raymond Miranda of Konkani Sahitya Prakashan.I still remember that Dr.
Eugene had published one of his novels through his Veronica Prakashan.
Good luck to both the towering personalities of our community.
All the Best to Bellevision.
"Lord In your arms make them rest"
Thank you Dr.Eugine and bellevision Team.
I appriciate the comments made by Mr. Ronald Sabi Mr. louis Alva.
Good thinking.For doing charity work so many oppurtunities are there.Not from keeping cemetery untidy.We will spend money for our social functions like anything to show our strenght and how rich we are.In my opinion that money also used to spend for the education of poor student????
A good initiative by Lions Club of Shirva-Manchakal. Keep it up.
Yet another good coverage by Eugene D\\ souza
I totally agree with the comments of Mr. Ronald Sabi on the Cemetery. After all... this the last place where we can see to our loved once and say goodbye forever and pray for their souls. We all must try to keep the Cemetery always clean and tidy , so that anyone who wish to visit to their loved once resting place , walk in easily and peacefully pray for their departed souls, as some time we find the difficulties to walk inside the Cemetery because of not keeping the enough place to walk ( as a passage) and also because of the unwanted grass and plants . Congratulations to all Mukamar Parishioners as you have shown a perfect example to other parishes where we all need to take maximum care of own parish Cemetery s.
All the best team Bellevision and Konkans Dubai...Thanks a lot for arranging a throwball and volleyball tourney...Happy to see the participation of teams.Jai ho team bellevision.........
Very good initiative by the office bearers and leaders of Bellevision UAE along with Konkans Dubai. Wish you all the best in the organizing of this tournament.
Happy to see Saby Parbu in Action!!!. Best wishes to Bellevision UAE.
Wishing Bellevision (UAE) all the best in organising the Volley-ball and Throw-ball tournaments on 11/11/11, a unique date to remember.
Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine on all departed souls, and may thier Souls rest in peace, Amen.
thanks to Dr.Eugene dsouza..
i remember my honeymoon days in chickmagluru and belur halbidu.
i visited twice to the temple..my memories have been refreshed by your nice pictures of belur halebidu and your exellent report..
thank you for this article.
Mr. Vijay D\ souza, you are correct. This is nothing but wastage of money. In history we have learned that King Shahajahan built TajMahal as a gift to his beloved queen(wife)only after her death.Ultimately it is turned out as a graveyard. And we dig our grave long before our death.
\ Smashana\ can not be a Dhama\". Donors of the graveyard, You may have spent more to the charities and for the education of poor children, but be wise before you spend.I suggest all the parishes must ban the permanent graves in their graveyards.Or Otherwise,in near future it is difficult to get a 6 ft. long area to dump a poor man\ s body in the Cemetry .
The churches charge huge sums when we purchase tombs, but never maintains it. At least once in a year they should clean it.
Excellent tour deails and photographs,refreshed old memories of such a beautiful treasury/heritage places...
I was just wondering why RSBans need to have a "sangha or samaja like this to waste money! No use at all! If they can t give a suitable girl to a groom who didn t married yet, then why need to have a community together like this??? To show their richness???
Congratulations!!I believe..it is great job by Mukamar parishioners. It is very important have clean, green and landscaped areas at churches, homes, public road sides and why not even at cemetery. I am sure such beautiful and maintained place can emit positive energy rather than a cemetery with bushes and haphazardly grown communist plantation which is a common sight at most RIP destinations.
I am proud of Mukamar parishioners for such a wonderful thought and making it a reality. Every parish should learn to keep their cemetery neat and clean by getting rid of grass, thorny plants and shrubs…a place worthy to walk during any time of the year when we want to visit resting place of our beloved departed souls.
What a dead waste of money. Are the dead going to come back when you spend lakhs of rupees for welcome arch, compound wall, tiled pathways. Better if the money goes for charity. Atleast 100 students minimum 5 years of education cost could have been covered from this utter waste of money. We are good at show off only. May God Bless us.
What a beatiful series of photgraphs and the depiction of the natural and hostoric scenes. India is rich and Belle vision has becom richer by this report and the enriched by a learned Hostry Professor of BelurHalebeedu by Dr.Eugene. The viwers must be enjoying the views and recollect the historic culture of Karnataka in the Malenadu. Rev.Fr. Valerain;s assistance is also great. I really enjoy the scenes , which I had seen during my High school days.Reat works Dr Eugene. Thank your and congratulations.
