Mangalore, Apr 30: Manjanady-Neringana is a small village about 20 km away from here, ornamented with the beauty of nature. The alluring greenery of the village, blended with cool breeze and rippling streams is soothing to the mind and soul. The ears deafened with the harsh sounds and noises of cities take pleasure in hearing the songs of birds and streaming falls in the vicinity. These panoramas have sowed seeds in the minds of some people in the area to bring about an educational set-up to impart qualitative schooling and education on religion and worldly basis so that they can mould an ideal citizen in the rural hut to be a model to the whole state and country.
Perhaps no one would think that this tiny village would one day be connected to the global village. This is merely due to the well-established educational institution and orphanage being run under Al Madeena Institution. Recently, a website www.almadeenaonline.com was launched by Haji Ibrahim Bawa Mangalore in the presence of Muslim scholars and other dignitaries.
