Dear Alphs,I was really surprised to read your report on the Carnatic music concert performed by the \ Sthree Taal Tarang\ . Surprised because a Mangalorean Catholic could pen so eloquent a write-up on Indian Classical music. Though I know nothing about Indian classical music,I love to hear it when I am alone, because, in public, people around me think I irritate them! I am partial to Hindustaani music, that too instrumentals, except Pt.Bhimsen Joshi. Bismillah Khan is my favorite. I love Dr. Balamurali Krishna also. I was not aware a woman playing Ghatam, and that too seven Ghatams! Thank you.
Once again congratulations on the occasion of Opening Function of St. Lawrence College. Yes as Fr. Wilson said it should be the light of knowledge to rural students and support the rural and economically back-ward students in providing access to higher education is a great vision of St. Lawrence college should be commanded and appreciated. I am sure by giving chance to these youth, the college will reap the fruits of good results in time and also lifts of lives of many young men in time. Based on this years results, the college have the more students enrolled in the coming years and the college staff and management has a lot to work and organise. Once again I wish the new Principal Dr. Eugene and Vice Principal Ms. Sarita D Souza all the best. Also thanks Anil Alva for the video insert, as we can watch the proceedings of the function sitting far away from home and feel at home.
I am sure with the grand official opening ceremony of St. Lawrence College Moodubelle in the presence of Fr Wilson V. Dsouza, secretary of Catholic Board of Education, Mangalore and the message from the Chief Guest, opines his vision of the college is to Providing access to higher education in order to empower the rural youth and the support and assistance he assured to all who are well connected to this Institution has been very highly appreciated.

Congratulation belleans after long time a dream come true for all belle Region and our hearty wishes to all the people who work towadrs to the project to success.
It is indeed a very sad and shocking to learn that two young lives are lost. I keep on advising young children to take care esp. in the river and sea while swimming. Every parents must guide and advise their children on this issue which will definitely save their children lives. It is very difficult to imagine the agony and pain their parents must go through now. May God Help them.
These tragedies are happening because the young generation is not aware of the safety requirements that have to be observed at different situations like climbing a tree, swimming, using cumbustible gases, working in the kitchen etc. Everything is taken for granted thinking "so far nothing has happened, now also nothing will happen". Other reason is that students are coming from different parts of India as well as from abroad and none of them are aware of the dangers awaiting them in this part of India which has terrains, bad roads, dangerous beaches, lakes, rivers, poisonous snakes, open wells - to mention a few. I think it is time all the institutions who take these students for studies should orient them and make them aware of the dangers lurking around them. I feel very sad for all the lives lost in the twin districts of Karnataka during these days.
I fully understand Mamata s stand. It is nothing but "Jathig jathi page, nayig nayi page"! Mamata, you don t like "bongoli dada"?
So bad incident typical story end with western style. This is happen due to neglegence of parents so sad!!
Congratulation Dr.Eugene D’souza and Mrs.Sarita Alva ,all the very best for your staff.And i wish all success to this institution.
After all,YSR congress is like an illegitamate child of INC.Congress should feel sorry,it helped YSR to misrule the state while he was the C.M.

Congratulations to Moodbelle parish on launching its own college. I was recently in Moodbelle church campus for the first time and it struck me as an island of progress and modernity. With veteran academician like Dr Eugine D Souza as Principal, you have a winner there. Good luck!
Itt is a great day for St.Lawrence Institutions to add one more -Degree College. the Blessings of St. Lawrence are powerful and this college, it is hoped will not fail in getting sufficient students. Dr Eugene will do well in his new role and may the institution grow in strength and creat new reords so that the history of Belle glow . Rev. Fr. Joswey Fernandes has shown his enthusiasm in all spheres to leave his foot prints as a permanent marks of Belle. Good luck to all -correspondent, Management committee,where Commodore J. Castelino is a memebr, staff and students.
Congratulations, wishing St. Lawrence Degree College every success. Thanks to those who made it happen. I was talking to my MAI few days ago, she was very very happy and proud to see that the building she saw through her bedroom window throughout her life just across the road from our house has stood the test of time and has become home for higher education before could pass away from this world. It is a special feeling for me and my family. May God bless the institute and Boliye.
What a blessed day, 14 June 2012, for the St. Lawrence Degree College to be born and see the light of the day! Don t be discouraged, folks, at the number, 60%. With God s grace and the intercession of St.Lawrence it ll grow. The Higher Secondary school was born in 1913 with a small number of students, and it grew into High School in 1959, into Pre-University College
in 1981! Who on earth knew the tiny baby of Higher Secondary School born in 1913 had the potential to grow to be a Degree College today! The Degree College Born today, let us hope and pray, will grow into something we may not be able foresee today. With Lord s tools such as Fr. Josway, Dr. Eugene D Souza and their staff today, the torch will be passed on to able hands and this institution will see further glorious days in days to come!
Congratulations to all those who have worked hard to establish a degree college at Moodubelle.I send my greetings,good wishes and God\ Blessings on the auspicious day of Inauguration of St.Lawrence degree college.I pray that God may bless this institution to grow in strength and achievements and attain great heights in the noble cause of imparting education to the young minds.
Once again you have my congratulations and prayerful good wishes on this happy occasion.
First of all let me congratulate the three gurus of the St. Lawrence College without their initiative and constant follow up and determination this day would not have arrived. For everything there is beginning and this will be a great day not only for students but also for Belle Parishioners. The pictures looks all smiles everything ALL IS WELL but reality will be realized in the coming years. Well, there is a lot of hard work to do and I am sure with the able leadership of Dr. Eugene, Commodore Jerome and Rev. fr. Joswey they will not only succeed but also have the best results. First batch is always remembered and students of the first batch will be always remembered. There were some questions raised earlier whether the college is required? In my opinion we should always encourage if there is a genuine need for school or college. We should not worry about ifs and why?. I am sure the above gentlemen and committee have taken consensus before venturing into setting up the college. WISHING THE NEW STUDENTS ALL THE BEST AND THE MANAGEMENT AND STAFF ALL SUCCESS. I am sure many more students shall enroll in the comming years on completion of first batch best results for sure.
Congratulations to the management and the students of St. Lawrence Degree College and good luck for the first year. I am sure the qualified lecturers will take extra steps to bring out the best from this first batch of students as less number of students mean individual attention to every one. We belleans are lucky to get this opportunity, so children should take full advantage of this opportunity.
best of luck again to all involved.
History in the making with inaugural day of degree courses in St. Lawrence College, Moodubelle. From pictures, it looks enrollment is under 60% of allocated seats. But, we can see smiles everywhere. I hope a few more will join sooner. And I wish all success to this institution.
Congratulations !!! We wish all the best to the Principal Dr. Eugene D Souza and College Staff in imparting quality education to the students of the College.
The big day in the history of Moodubelle, a degree college has opened its door to welcome the first batch of students! A simple but very meaningful inaugural ceremony of St. Lawrence College Moodubelle will give you an indication that better days are ahead for the Belleans and their children from the educational point of view. Congratulations! To one and all who has been with thick and thin of action to establish this institute from the beginning and wish them success for their future endeavors.
Congratulations to you and your team on your great and amazing accomplishment. It just goes to prove that hard work and dedication can always make a difference. May God bless you to carry out all your future plans with 100% success.
Congratulations and all the best to St. Lawrence degree college.

These brave people are the real "SENE". They must have named it "Shivaji Sangha" to differentiate it from the notorious "Shiva Sene" or the "Rama Sene". May their numbers grow and save more lives.

The Blessings of the creatorAlmighty God spreading in the rural area through the chappel of St. Antoy is a great devotional activity to enrich the faith in God among the rural faithful.in place like Manjarapalke. St. Antony will belss aall those who have taken part in the gloriuous ceremony and the devotees like me, could not make it. May God bless us all devotees of St Antony. It is a very devotee activity of the local faithful and I pray that they would be blessed abundantly.
To supplement Muddu s underlying theme in this beautiful poem, I want to introduce BV readers to a journalist with a cause: Kavita Kannan Chandra here: http://in.news.yahoo.com/blogs/purplecorner/-1-man--1-rupee--1-check-dam.html
You can access http://www.theweekendleader.com/index.php and read several stories on how crusaders, no matter how weak and powerless they may be, can transform lives. In our villages, not too long ago, we were very co-operative, a concept tossed out today. Selfishness and politics has given birth to a river in our hearts, that needs a bridge. You may also Google a word UBUNTU and read up on Bishop Tutu stories extolling the virtues of UBUNTU, which we need to bring back in our lives. Lat week I was in US and I witnessed how local communities team up and create self-help groups. One of my professional associate serves as community electrician while another as community plumber, after his work, needless to say about community soup moms and so on..
Thank god....finally government planning to start english medium syllabus from 6th standard and till 5th standard kannada will be taught.Hope in our moodubelle also English medium will be merged with kannada medium and atleast infrastructure of primary will change(management can think now construct new building in the place of kannada medium and merge kannada and english medium together(merge) in the new building without taking any special fees) the people,parents and who respect kannada pls comment about this and definetly it improve the quality of education as it was before. I request also the management will think in this regard,as I feel pity on the condition of the school premises,furnitures,and the coondition of students.
Finally a small set back for the activists who made language agitation a career!
This is a sad story for me...I used to eat and keep Jack fruit..in brine for 365 day, so far I used to get it free....Now on ...DEVERE GATHI..????
These ladies has to visit Udupi temple square during Ashtamee season...They can learn to walk with wooden sticks....which can increase their height more than 15 feet.....!!!!??? Nonsense.
Bullshit...may be in western countries....In India many of them forget their Birthday s after 40 Years.
Do you think the are really worried about Human rights. They are worried about their own rights. Do they visit any village..??? They want villagers to reach them....This is all game. Can anybody give an account of how much money is spent on his visit only for 6 complaints...!!!????
It is a very sad story and it looks like the human rights commission is not for common people and hence office is moved to unreachable to common man. Secondly, there is always hindrance from Bosses of Private buses for introducing govt buses in any route and these greedy boses think of only their pocket and do not think or worry of about common people s plight. The best way is organize a campaign to highlight these problems and get the transportation or location of office to be moved to a reachable distance of the common man.
Edmond, I hope you will second my views after this reiteration also, so no one misinterprets my earlier comments, especially the phrase that you quoted. Both Tipu and his father were communal Jehadi Islamists of the most extreme kind. IF the latter did not enjoy unrestrained power, Tipu did not face any of his father s constraints in implementing the agenda. And his agenda was to establish an Islamic kingdom with him and his dynasty as caliphs and annihilate kafirs. But of course, with the military support of his ally the infidel French. He was neither anti-British or anti-any-European foreign powers then vying for territory, market and influence in the region for trade and imperial purposes, but was against his own non-Muslim subjects and the non-Muslim kingdoms. I am appalled that our history books and intellectuals hail him as a hero who fought British influence and gave his life. How blind can we get, in interpreting our past, in order to blame all our ills on our immediate ex-rulers. The British actually did a favor in dismantling his evil rule and restoring the territory to Wodeyars, the Hindu dynasty, angelic in comparison.
