In the early 1960s, there were a few budding Konkani drama producers or musical singers, (without knowing to write music notes on a sheet) used to have "George Fernandes as Chief Guest" just to induce audience increase, by posting hand written notes at railway station entrances. Beloved George had no idea at all.

It’s a pleasure to see people recongising George. Giving awards in his name. The very people who were throwing stones when George Fernandes was speaking in Jawaharlal N. Maidan, in Mamagalore, are now admitting that George was their hero. " Certifeid Stupids" There is nothing imposibvle in this world.": The Netravathi is NOT deep enough for your double standard.....
