Mangaluru, Jan 14 : Here is another auspious day of Makara Sankranti, a holy day in the Hindu calender, the day came to this world in a very small way back in 2001. Climbing the ladder of success set-by-step, facing major challenges in this fast-growing technology-friendly era, today Daijiworld is striding towards adulthood. Standing on the threshold of this milestone, we feel immense satisfaction when we look back at our journey.
