It was indeed a very well organized event. The Opening Ceremony was the highlight of the day. RJ Harsha was at his usual best. The kannada prayer song by little children was really wonderful. It is good that Belle Vision recognized Mr. Sarvotham Shetty s service to community and honoured him. There was a bit of delay in inauguration of matches but once started, matched went on in quite good pace without any further delay. Concluding ceremony was professionally conducted. Hats off to Belle Vision and Konkans Dubai for a memorable event.
