In the year 1950; I had heard and seen or drawn pictures of aeroplanes from text books. My imagination went wild when I saw a plane flying in the sky from Bombay to Bajpe in the year 1951 for the first time. In those days, I have had not seen lot more things like CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) or Skype etc. I had read then in a newspaper I guess, that grand parents in USA give cars as gifts if their grandchildren pass high school. Whereas, there was not a single car in Barkur. Have you written Cobol programs using punch cards? You might have heard, right?
It takes more energy to be grumpy than to smile or laugh! Choice is yours! Be happy, chirpy, and crispy!

55 years ago, in Barkur, there was a swimming competition in my high school. Since there were no swimming pools as such, a temple large pool was used. The stagnant water was cold and cool.
One of the popular athlete got cramps in the leg and was drowning. Fortunately the sports teacher had hired a local fisherman, who pulled this swimmer to safety. It was then I had heard the term Life Guard, Floating devices, safety, motor driven boats etc. There is an islet type of land between Kallyanpur Kalav and Brahmavar Kalav.
In the rainy season water flows in this river in a mighty hurry causing unexpected swirl-pools or dangerous currents. In the year 1958 or so; one Fr. A. Sequeira,the then Parish Priest of Sasthan, who was crossing the river by boat, got capsized, and was drowned.
Local fishermen searched for him, in vain, for five days. On sixth day his body was found in Manoor beach. Manoor is a place between Kota and Sasthan. The body had travelled about 10-15 miles. May his soul rest in peace. Mark my words, prevention is better than cure. There is a difference between constructive criticism and…. I had heard of sour grapes, but now I know there are bitter ones too. Laugh

Just for passification, it doesnot mean that we ( the present generation) should not own a car or motor bike, because our grand/great grand fathers didnot own it.

Is it not right to think about the safety awareness??? whether in India or any corner of the world.

The coconut tree may be of height 30 to 40 ft ( guessing by looking at the height of the person climbing and the tree), It may be typing error.

But we should admire the organisers, for organising these types of rural games and competitions in our villages.

Keep it up!!!

Why do Indians love to criticize their mother land sitting in a foreign country?
I wonder if they have ever seen a life jacket, harness or motor boat before leaving India.
Good to see our local guys swim against the currents and climb tall coconut trees without diapers.

@james, yes u are right, where is 300 feet cocunut tree in India?? and not seen any precaution measures during boat races or swimming competitions?? Why??

James Fernandes, Barkur/Chicago
16/09/2011 02:02:13

300 feet tall coconut trees? Very rare or never heard of... or 100 feet sir?
I did not see pictures of any motor driven boat or any life guard in the event of emergencies.
Just as forgiveness is better than permission; however, prevention is better than cure...Just an observation ..aste..

Let it be noted that this year 2011, MKCA Chicago, served a fish dish (shrimps) along with their usual strict vegetarian dishes; in celebration of Monthi Fest.

In India people adore cricket because philosophy of our government is play only cricket and spend five days of precious time wasting just watching and relaxing in front of TV resulting in losses of millions of hours of work billions of revenue losses due to cuts in productivity. What I would suggest is give same importance to all sports fields like hockey, soccer, tennis, etc that’s only few hours of demonstration in play.

I was really in tears while reading about Yuvi and his family the person who made India Proud by hitting that goal which brought Asian Championship to India and the sports ministry initially rewarded them with just Rs. 25000/= what a shame?? Why this happens in INDIA for sports other than cricket?? See the condition of Yuvi and his family, how he struggled in his life, why there is no proper attention to National Players other than cricket??

The Milagres College Social Work Department bas been done a very wonderful job. Because as a human, social worker need to know about all the body languages, facial expression and other behavioral attitudes. then only the social worker can understand person in first sight. it is very much important to the students to develop thier own graspin skills.

so, I would like to congratulate Department and Students for organising such a wonderful programme.
Thank you.
