John Tauro, who is young in heart, busting with enthusiasm seems to have covered half of the globe in nearly a decade. Although I am not able to go on overseas tour; I can relish the pics of pristine nature and glimpses of ancient civilisation. Hope John covers rest of 88 countries to cover the whole world in his lifetime. All the best!!

Bellevision John V.Tauro, the one who is hosting a museum in his “Budget House” in Shiva Bagh, has returned from yet another world tour before Carona -19 hit India. How does this concern us? A Chinese proverb says that one good picture is worth 10,000 words. Going by this, John, with his travel tales in visual form, supported by dozens of well-composed, sharp photos published in the popular Bellevision website following every one of his half a dozen outings that have covered nearly all of global tourist trails – as in the case of his latest foray into five South American countries. Going with a batch of other tourists under the banner of Mumbai-based Veena World Tours, he is now a familiar mascot for the dozen and more repeat tourist with Veena who start from Mumbai and terminate there – after a 20-day foray in the latest case - into exotic locales. His memories of these outings, which are captured in his high-end camaras – not smartphones - are currently trending on the home page of popular Bellevision website.

The latest trip covered Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. All these countries are studded with ancient and modern marvels and nature’s beauty. John’s travel reporting, mainly through photos, is gripping and educative. Over the years his photos and related reports have progressively improved like old wine in the casks. His latest photos have Samba dancers which got my eye popping – at 82-vintage years.

Two things are notable in John’s travels around the world. He takes his smartly attired and fetching wife, Regina, along though it might risk controlling his roving eyes through the camera viewfinder and beyond. Because, though retired, John has youthful energy and drive. His dress sense on such tours makes himself a moving star. For instance, he is strutting around in his native mundu and shawl as also western suits and hats and boots to suit.

So, without getting into individual photos, I can safely recommend them to Bellevision viewers.

PS: A confession. John has an altruistic streak. He has, over the years offered gratis photo support for my Bondel Laughter Club and Johnlyn Toy Exchange which collects toys from those who no longer need them and presents them to deprived children in orphanages and bala/balika ashrams to bring a smile on their faces while owning and holding what are now their own toys. Also thanks to Bellevision for generously covering these events.

PPS: With the latest South American foray, John has so far covered 102 countries.

Very good article. We all had hope on Modiji that he will end corruption and we will see Acche Din. People under India-2 and India-3 categories that you mentioned are suffering for no fault of theirs. Unless the government enforces strong measures and laws to recover bad loans especially given to Corporate houses or businesses run by close relatives of bank executives, this will continue to hurt Indian economy and the common man. Modiji has been screaming at the top of his lungs that we will soon be a 5 trillion economy but without clear plans and milestones to reform the economy, this seems to be a far stretched goal than a committed one. The Indian voters need to realize the false notion of nation building and demand answers from this government; the sooner the better.

Thanks Bellevision for covering the sorry state of the road. People are indefinitely waiting for good road for almost a decade now.
People representatives and beurocrats should remember that providing a good road for people is their responsibility and having a decent, all season motorable roads across villages is not luxury anymore.
21st century villages can t live with 20th century roads.

Dear Philip Uncle thank you for giving us an opportunity to read this well researched article and sharing your wise views on AAP s big win.The people of Delhi have voted for the intelligent brains and kind hearts of AAP. I hope to see the wave of AAP spreading to other states too.I welcome politics of progress rather than politics of power.Many like us are celebrating their win.AAP ko jai ho.

Michael Sequeira, Pamboor / Nairobi

Philip is a very analytical and prolific writer.Philip your observations are mostly if not always correct.Kejriwal in his inaugural speech has extended his arms to the central government/BJP and all the opposition party leaders to serve the people of Delhi and build a model world class city.AAP is a party of the common people and Kejriwal has provided the Aam ordinary people what they need in their day to day life like free/cheap water,subsidised electric power,free transport,the most deserved security for women by installing CCTV.Kejriwal is definetely running a corruption free administartion which the ordinary people are seeing in the government offerred services.Philip you have beautifully analysed and articulated Kejriwals winning strategy by distancing from being an angry activist to helping the common man irrespective of caste and religion.His service, based on bible teaching or reciting Hanuman Chalisa have found a common ground with the ordinary people.What is now paramount is to spread this vision to other parts of the country to enjoy a peaceful and a new face of politics.Sure both BJP and Congress are taking a cue from kejriwal.

Mr. Philip have briefly explained the analysis of Mr. Kejriwal. Well done sir !!
I personally think , AAPs victory have made people realise there is still a hope that the corruption could be vanished in Delhi .so Kejriwal should extend his rule all over . Lastly , I would like to thank you for such an informative article and keep writing.

As you said Mr Arvind Kejriwal is a clever politician,He nicely transformed AAP from their hypothetical and impractical urban naxalite policies to a blend of socialistic liberalized policy which is more beneficial for the indian middle class.Also it is a reflection of indian youths disappointment mainly due to the unfulfilled promises of Mr Modi.Delhites are among the most suffered people of Modinomics. Also the after effect of the CAA clearly reflects in this election result.Also i suspect that Some of the congress votes are purposefully diverted to AAP camp by congress to keep BJP from Delhi throne.

Well written. Kejrival shrewdly talked to the people on their day to day issues, nearer to their hearts and wisely kept away from mud slinging and name calling the opponents. Imagine boldly claiming from a stage last December that he is governance is based on Jesus teachings! More so, when he convinced people that he can afford to give freebies only because his govt. is corruption free! Mr. Philip has nicely articulated Kejrivals winning strategy. The Chanakya of BJP Amit Shah seems to have agreed with Mr. Philip when he said he miscalculated! Keep writing, Philip.

Ronald Sabi, Moodubelle

Wonderful analysis. True, Kejriwal spent all his energies on building an image of an able administrator, delivering government services to the people of Delhi regardless of ethnicity, religion, caste and class.
Hope every state gets a CM like him so that citizens can live in peace and minimum corruption in public works!

Peter Saldanha, Kabyadi / Pamboor

National narratives, hatred based on religion, go to Pakistan, goli maro salon ko, etc. did not help BJP in Delhi and I think will not help BJP in other upcoming state elections. Also they did not have a strong leader in Delhi. Tiwari, Goel are no match to Kejriwal. Moreover Kejriwal outsmarted BJP by reciting Hanuman Chalisa and immediately became a fan favorite among Delhi people especially Women. BJP definitely needs a different strategy to win Bihar and West Bengal with so many anti CAA / NRC protests happening in these states. Curious how Kursi Kumar will fight to hold on to his post.

A whatsapp forward summarized the Delhi results nicely:
Jaadu maro - 62
Goli Maro - 8
Danda Maro - 0

Phillip, a great analysis of Kejriwals rise thru his feel for the common man, poor and suufering, ailing seniors. In contrast to age old politicians get into power and then forget the people that put them in power, Kejriwal delivered what he promised: fight corruption, #draintheswamp and develop and implement infrastructure to aid the public. A model, to serve the people he fought the election for free of prejudice towards religion, caste or creed. Rise above politics and serve the nation and its citizens. I am happy he narrates the life of Jesus and follows His guidance in performing his duties. -GeM

Wow this article gives an in-depth yet brief history of Kejriwal s journey towards transformation success in recently held elections..
Philip Dsouza (Mudartha) has this natural gift of writing great articles with a neutral frame of mind which is what s lacking in current articles by well known writers / journalists etc..
Philip, you are doing a great job.. Keep it up and hope to see many of your articles in national / international journals / newspapers etc..

Mr. Philip clearly explained the march of Mr. Kejriwal by acquiring a commendable 54% of vote share and 62 seats in assembly. People gave great support for his endeavour to address the issues of common people. Hope the politicians will learn from him, read assess what is clearly stated by Mr. Philip D’Souza

Since Sadiq khan, Pakistani origin became the Mayor, these Pakistani always protest in from to Indian embassy and even they vandalize the property over there. British authority has to seriously look into. One of the reason Labour government lost election this year.Indian community always used to support Labour, this time defeated them. Most of the Pakistani community live on benefit and Indian community contributes to tax.
