Foreign nationals pledge their lives for restoration of Gurukul form of education Image by  chiragbarry via instagram Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya on the outskirts of the picturesque and sleepy Kalkeri village near the culturally rich Dharwad city in Karnataka has many feathers in its cap. It’s not just another residential school imparting formal education in the rural areas but one founded by foreign nationals who have literally sacrificed their lives to ensure that the ideals of Gurukul continue to remain unabated since 2002. Mathieu Fortier from Canada and his French wife Agathe Meurisse are the co founders while Adam Woodward from Britain is the Director along with other members of the governing board who are striving incessantly to successfully run the educational cum music organization without any financial aid from either the state or central governments. Looking back at the history of inception of this residential school it reminds one like a script of a super d

‘Giant Killer’ George Fernandes passes away unnoticingly!

‘Giant Killer’ George Fernandes passes away unnoticingly! A rare jewel in the present day politics in the form of Socialist and Trade Union leader George Fernandes is no more. His demise after a prolonged attack of Alzheimer’s disease and having remained literally a vegetable for years together is unthinkable of a fearless public figure known for volatile and candid remarks in public. Born in a joint catholic family of six children at Mangaluru in Karnataka, George as a lad of 16 years landed in Bengaluru to become the priest of a church. However within three years of his stint as a Christian missionary he underwent enough experience to realize the paradoxical situation on what was being preached and practiced. He quit his priesthood and reached the then Bombay not knowing what to do! Initially he had no one to stay in the country’s business capital and did petty jobs for livelihood sleeping in bus and railway stations. While loitering in this fashion he also got an opp

a'Walking God' says adieu to his journey

a'Walking God' says adieu to his journey Kyatasandra is a suburb on the outskirts of Tumakuru renowned for its 'Thatte Idlis'(Plate Idlis).Generally people traveling on this national highway make it a point to have a brief stopover in this place to please their taste buds. This has been the situation since decades and off late a visit to the nearby 'Sri Siddaganga Mutt' has almost become mandatory.It goes without saying that Dr Shivakumar Swamiji popularly reverred as 'Walking God' is the main attraction for such a practice. Dr Shivakumar Swamiji of the Siddaganga Mutt also popularly reverred as the 'Walking God' concluded his worldly journey at the overripe age of 111 years and 295 days!He met the lotus feet on Monday, 21st January. He was ailing for some time due to advanced age related ailments and failing health conditions and had been frequently in and out of various hospitals at Tumakuru,Bengaluru and Chennai.In the last phase he refu

Devegowda family relies heavily on divine power to retain power

Devegowda family relies heavily on divine power to retain power The temple run spree of HD Kumaraswamy, Chief Minister of the Janata Dal Secular- Congress alliance government continues to keep going unabated and the pace has dwindled now with the ten days state legislature session scheduled to commence from 10 December in Belagavi Suvarna Soudha. HD Kumaraswamy has reiterated umpteen number of time that he has occupied the chief minister’s position only because of the grace of almighty although the people of the state gave only 38 legislators to the party in the state Assembly. HD Devegowda family is again seeking divine blessings to manage the unstable power boat which has started making dangerous tilts, thanks to the frequent threats of ‘Operation Kamal’ by the 104 member Bharatiya Janata Party. A 20 days yaga for the improvement of HD Kumaraswamy’s fragile health apart from totally destroying all enemies on the political front is currently on at Sringeri, the abode of

JDS-Congress government:Six months of confusion and chaos

JDS-Congress government:Six months of confusion and chaos The HD Kumaraswamy led Janata Dal Secular-Congress alliance state government has managed to complete six months in office with enough dosage of hardships all along the way and most of the major promises unfulfilled. As a token of gratitude to the people of Mandya district the Chief Minister launched developmental projects to the tune of Rs 718 crores at Melukote,the historic vaishnavaite pilgrimage centre.The huge quantum of monetary assistance to any single district is the highest so far after the sworn enemies turned close friends assumed office on this day six months back. It may be recalled here that the ruling Janata Dal Secular party triumphed in Mandya district bagging all the eight Assembly constituencies in the May 2018 general elections.The party also retained the Mandya Lok Sabha constituency in the recently held bye elections. HD Kumaraswamy had embarrassing moments today as a farmer belonging to Mandya district co

HD Kumaraswamy continues to keep media at 'safe distance'

HD Kumaraswamy continues to keep media at 'safe distance'          HD Kumaraswamy,the Janata Dal Secular-Congress alliance state Chief Minister looks to have taken a complete U turn about his public stance and utterances on the functioning of media and that too within a short span of six months after taking over the reigns.Today he declared in a government function:Henceforth I shall not issue any press statements... The chief minister seems to be annoyed over the media criticism on his three diverse views within a short time frame of three hours.The dubious change of opinion in such childish fashion only further undermined the sanctity of the  constitutional position he holds. It so happened that just two days back Jayashree, a woman farmer and part of a unruly peasants group which barged into the premises of Suvarna Soudha on the outskirts of Belagavi aired her anger against the present CM.She blasted him for not making arrangements to pay dues to the sugarcane grow

'Green Swamiji' continues to remain evergreen in the hearts of devotees Sri Tontada Siddalinga swamiji,pontiff of the revered Dambal-Gadag Samsthan Thontadarya Mutt in Gadag district headquarters left to heavenly abode on 20 October 2018.But his contribution for the welfare of society and commitment in restoring the environment unpolluted makes him remain in the minds and hearts of the people forever. In fact he was a much progressive seer compared to his traditional contemporaries of Veerashiva-Lingayat,one of the two dominant communities in the state of Karnataka apart from Vokkaligas who dominate in the Southern parts .Although the former are found in large numbers in the whole of North Karnataka,both of them worship Lord Shiva.Veerashiva-Lingayats happen to be vegetarians while the Vokkaligas are non vegetarians. Sri Siddalinga swamiji was fondly known as the 'Green Swamiji'. He earned the title following his relentless fight to thwart the attempts of min

Late Siddu Nyamagouda,apart from his party affiliations was well respected by the people and more so among the farming community.It goes to his credit of building the Shrama Bindu Sagar,popularly known as the Chikkapadasalgi barrage across river Krishna
