This is something remarkable in the history of Moodubelle. Today the whole world is in a mad rush and hence the beauty of nature, literature, poetry is forgotten. We all have become materialistic. In this age mad rush, Bellevision has joined hands with Kavita Trust to host National Level Kavita Fest in Moodubelle. This shows the maturity, quality and farsightedness of Bellevision which wants to see a new Belle rich in heritage, cultural values. Good going Bellevision team. Best wishes to Sannu Monis and Bhotaam Boliye.
