Fr. Joswin rightly said: Parents are treasurers of the parish and we must respect them at all times. In the modeern society we see many make mockery of our elders... God bless them all and give them long life and good health.
Congrats to JP Hegde,
i am sure his party Congress will win this time as he is the deserving candidate. BJPs infighting and greed for power will cost them dearly... GOOD LUCK CONGRESS..
Short, but very meaningful couplets by Godwin D'Souza.
"OLD IS GOLD" which is precious and is to be handled with great care!
I do not want to belittle passion, vision and achievements of another human being, especially a teenager who is lucky to be recognized, on World Sparrows Day. (I did not know they also had a day only for them!).
Sparrows were pests when I was 15. I have spent hours driving them away, from whatever food we had to process in the aangann and khadap. Their chirpy music was not really a dear to my ears then. After being absent from my life for years, they arrived once again occupying my window-sills, balconies and chirping away, in competition with pigeons. I have a whole band now, to which I wake up here in Qatar!
Congratulations Ramita for winning National Sparrow Award. Your efforts in conserving the lovely rare bird is amazing and praiseworthy. The little birds who used to be a regular sight during my childhood days have practically disappeared as their normal habitat of straw or hey house-roofs have given way to tiles and later to concrete terraced houses.
AFTER LEAVING KUWAIT FOR GOOD I AM MUCH HAPPY AS IF I AM IN KUWAIT STILL. WHEN I WAS IN KUWAIT I USED TO VISIT TO SOME THESE VENTAGE CARS ,DURING MY WORK AND USED TO ADMIRE. BUT MR TAURO PUT ALL OF THEM IN ONE PLACE WITH A ARTICLE I REALY THANK BELLEVISION FOR PUBLISHING THIS. MR TAURO WRITE MORE ABOUT OLD KUWAIT MEMORIES THANK YOU.
One big tension of India is done and over! 100 hundreds! Now only stress left for india is BJP Congress! Hope both get educated against corruption!!
Tendulkar s hundred is India s blunder! Congratulations to Bangla Desh. If the eye was not on that elusive hundred, India would have made at least 350 runs and won with bonus point. Good luck Bangla Desh.
I make an exception to comment on views expressed by a reader in addition to my own comment on the main article. Benedict Noronha is entitled to his view that the fare hike proposal is unfair. Would he oblige us by his reasoning? He sure pays nearly two times as much for a liter of petrol that he used to pay nine years ago? After all, coal, diesel and electricity are energy like petrol and are largely priced per global valuations for them.
Tinkering with a few arithmetic strokes is akin to administering aspirin to a cancer patient: that is my first reaction. Let the political voices be heard on streets and inside Parliament; let Finance Act 2012 be passed after whatever is rolled back, amended and maintained. I will have something to say then.
Thanks to youths but our MP,MLA or ministers are still sleeping! They don't look our local demands specialy roads or water supply.Only when election comes all party leaders are available!!
I too agree with Mr Benedict, Mr Philip. The church Authorites and the BJP CM cross the election code of conduct , can’t the church aurthorites wait another 3-4 days ? to invite him and give appeal for financial help ? after all we catholics people supported from decades for all church buildings and church schools whenever our priests are requested ,now all of sudden they need Govt help !!!
The demand for crack down on corruption is welcome. But who is to take it on action plan? The corrupt senior Leaders of UPA and Mr PKM- the F.M.? They have lived under the shade of corruption so far and can they try to do away withit without strong pressure from outside? Anna has become week and not absolutely above board. He also attached taint for siding the party. Hence only perhaps God has to come down and streghten the youth who cry for checking corruption, to initiate action. Pray for such an event to take place. Youth Voice Jai ho!
The enthusiasm and the seriousness shown by the Youth in rally and report coverage by Bellevision is O.K. But the senior Leaders if had put some pressure on Central leadership for extending the much demanded Bangalore Mangalore night Train to Karwar , perhaps this rally and expenses would not have required. The eating away of Secular votes by JDS is another factor. So far K.H. Muniappa is for BJP, in his hidden agenda, Congress has up hill task. Indifference of Oscar Fernandes about the demand for the Train to Karwar makes deciding factor. Any way only few hours left for voting and the voters will decide tonight after the true colour of the Congress (UPA) in the finance budget , will be out, which will have the last say. Let us keep the fingers crossed.
I have a doubt! What Lalaji has done for Kaup territory? Any improvemet? Sadaka illadiddaru Badaka illa!! No harm no beneft..No harm is better some times, but they should learn to get some state roads and development done!
Very good detail of ellection rallys published by bellevision team. Keep it up.
Sunil kumar and Anath kumar dont want minorites votes,And why did our priest giving such importence,Any answer MrBenedict?
Bravo to the village people of sorpu kallotu and kadamy of shirva grama as your doing this protest. Definetly people and the officers concern come to you all and again they beg for vote. Please vote for good candidate whichever the party. Hope your protest will help the villagers!! thanks to bellevision.
Wonderful day in Mumbai as if it is country side of Mangalore it is true culture even today people do this in thier festival time and during wedding, well done! St. Josephs konkani welfare association Mira Road of Mumbai. Thanks to bellevision for publishing this report. Keepp it up.
Mr Noronha, would like to ask you the populists budgets are acceptable? Last nine years there was no rise in ticket fares? Anyone here who is happy working for same salary used to get 9 years back?
With another sonrise, in the largest state in Indian federation, those who celebrate this victory as youth power will have to sit back and think: what exactly is the difference between first dynasty and UP dynasty? Especially, when they are endorsed by people s mandate of a given time and context?
I endorse the views expressed here by Benedict Noronha. Further, laity leaders of Catholic Church, please examine under what Legislature Act, the financial assistance is sought. If there are any provisions of law under which the parishioners can file application for state funds to construct/renovate/repair/relocate structures for worship, then those applications should be submitted to relevant office. They should not be handed over to ministers and people s representatives in legislature bodies. This public display is in violation of model code of conduct. It also gives an impression that Catholics are a vote bank, something proved recently in Goa state elections. Our clergy must put political expediency beyond our faith and its affairs, or take abuse lying down.
Congratulations to Mr. Mulayam Singh Yadav that under his able leadership Mr. Akhilesh Yadav has become the TIPU SULTAN of UTTAR PRADESH. We look forward for a good governance and growing our state. Cheers Mr. Akhilesh and the team for making good. All the best. JAI SAMAJWAD
For me it looks like political gimmick and empty promises. I doubt very much if this promise will be kept. Promises by Politicians!!!!! I wonder!!!!
Mamatha is right in calling back Mr Railway Mininster. The rise in ticket rates is unfair and also the minister has played down the demand of Karnataka coastal demand , which was promised for over three years no. If station Flatform tickets are enforecd they would get enough revenue.fThe Railway employees must be little efficient. The Karnataka Congress must demand removal of Mr Muniappa for his adament attitude and double game. He talks one thing and does another, like Karnataka BJP. He must be moved from the ministry and the Bangalore Mangalore Night train must be turned to karwar. If the minister looks for pressure he will have it that fast unto death is not an unknown thing for the Coastal people. But it is better for all concerned before it is too late.
Inviting trouble! if the election code of conduct is alive and kicking, then the BJP candidate must be dis qualified because the C.M. in the guise of visiting the Church exploited the code of conduct. The Church leaders also should not have entertained the visit and presented the appeal for aid during this time. After the elections the appeal should have been presented and the C.M. could have assured his promise. Unfortunately the incident has taken place which is unholy and under the election code of conduct is is illegal.as far as BJP is concerned now all the codes and ethics are more broken than kept up.
This is how individuals, people like Mamata Banerjee hold the nation on ransom! kick out such politicians form our system. We can see how railway service has deteriorated over the years in India. I feel the nominal hike after nine years is justified. Let the railways give better and safe service.
Fantastic and beautiful pictures by Canute Menezes. Though I am in New York I felt that I was at the fair in Mira Road (East).It was nice to see the Manglorean traditional articles on display. Congratulation to St. Joseph s Konkani Welfare Association and all the organizers and well wishers. Good Luck and God Bless.
The villagers of Sorpu, Kallotu and Kadamby of Shirva Grama have every right to boycott the coming the coming election as they are still waiting for a decent road. It is a shame that since 18 years nobody has done anything for these roads. The pictures itself proof the condition of these roads. Probably no ministers or some municipal officials live nearby or use these roads. It it was the case the road would have been repaired a long time.
None can assign to him/herself the right to sermonize how the self-made billionaires, multi-millionaires as well as wealthy by inheritance should spend or pile-up their riches. As for every issue, two or more points of view exist. Bill Gates his types believes in giving through self-controlled charitable trusts, while Slim, Jobs and their types believe in doing what they know best (growing businesses and creating opportunities for others for business and jobs). To each his own. However, I second the pov of Bill Gates.
Disturbing, yet true face of state sponsored terrorism. All right thinking people must condemn the policy and punish the state
Mamata Banerjee, the autocrat will hasten her own political waterloo. The election success has gone to her head, no doubts about that
What a farce! If I thought Lallu Prasad Yadav was an entertainer through his colorful expressions and dialogue delivery, this Trivedi is a three mouthed joker!!
(The poor man can afford to travel only 10kms maximum, because Indian definition of poverty is Rs26 per day. With this income, he walks within a radius of 5 Kms to manage a living.
Hi myself Imran..... am a muslim .Can i be a part of this party............ just give me a chance to be a part of this party ............... its a humble request from.... Imran
Impossible to believe this kind of forceful conversion takes place in Pakistan. No one has the right to covert anybody be it to Christianity, Muslim and for any other religion for that matter. The conversion should come within and conversion should be based on self interest and good reason and self belief and respect to the religion for which he/she wish to convert..
@Anil, let me rephrase what I said - it s the person who is doing the job here and not the party.. we shall talk about person and not condemning other parties. Also remember a person alone can t do this, there are other people involved from other parties as well.. there are good also bad people in all the parties.. So actually you can t say which one is good..
Dear Aishwaria, It is your choice when you want to come back to the film world. You have chosen to take care of you beautiful baby without any nannies as some of the chose. I am glad Big-B is back after his successful surgery and I have great regards to the Bachchan family. Since Ash is from my home town I respect her family and I have posted my comments in the media.
Alphonse Mendonca: Only individual transformation to become an ethical human being by self-resolve would put a stop to this. Fear of law will work, as long as the law enforcing authority itself does not abet the crime; making more complex rules, supervisory and regulatory systems will make it complex and expensive distribution system. The intended beneficiary, the subsistence level farmer, will be overawed by the cumbersome bureaucratic ways. It is a catch-22 situation, without any plausible solution.
When S.Tendulkar make is 100th Century its almost 1 year over and still Indian people waiting for his 100th century ,we are hoping that he will complete his century as soon as possible Best of Luck S.Tendulkar.
In the most educated nation, USA, official estimate suggests that annually over 100 billion dollars of tax money is siphoned of through fraud, abuse and corruption in subsidy management. An educated criminal is still a criminal, I would say a smarter one. Do you remember the student loans distributed to college students meeting certain criteria? How many students pay the loans back, even after becoming financially well off? How many bogus ration cards exist? How many of us continue to enjoy subsidy benefits even though we do not need them. People not entitled to subsidy benefits misappropriate as if it is a normal behavior, despite their education level. Greed knows no bounds and have no known remedy except ethical transformation.
Dear Ramesh i agree with you,The same time cong leaders like A Raja, suresh kalmadi,They were also in jail,corruption,Mr wilson talks about progress,BJP done very good in our villages,I really support him in this issue,About cong you know what they did,They are busy with cutting ribbon,But i still support Mr Hebbar,He is good heart man,He does the job,
I enjoyed reading this article. Good photos too. Thank you Mr. John Tauro.
I have read several articles from you but this one really attracted my attention. I do agree with you on this issue as it simply says: Someone s gain is somebody s loss for sure. We may say we made so much of money but as you rightly said, we make some one very poor. I hope our readers realize this. It is indeed an eye opener for many including myself.
" Do what they tell you , but do not do what they do" was the guidance of Jesus to the followers. The Kuntalnagar church has given the lead to the fiathful from the hill top. This is one good example and the fiathuful may follow and render repentance during let. God will bless them who have taken pains to participate and be enriiched suffering the pains of the Lord. This is being done at bainduur church and Kalavar-Pezar church every year as I know. A Well done activity to strengthen the faith. Let others also follow, if possible.
Thanks John for bringing out Kuwait Friday Market in open for all readers. The pictures tell complete story and the items available old and new. Thanks for talking time out and writing this wonderful article for Bellevision readers. May more and more articles appear on these subjects.
By revealing this plan well in advance, I think you have caused the property rates to multiply manifold in and around BC Road / Bantakal.
I am sure with the active participation of a number of societal transformers around us (of course you leading this) and also with the help of panchayat and district authorities, this dream could possibly be transformed into reality well within 25 years. All the best.
It is necessary to have an educational system to enlighten on financial management.There should be co-operative movements,visionary leaders,social activists to mobilise and educate the poor on how to benefit from governement schemes and expose those who are greedy to acquire without legitimate right.Is the society we come from Ready????Philip,your article is very educative but who will deliver this message to the people on the ground.Living with the Guju's I see how their mind works on economical activity and help each other by different means to get people enrich.
