    Cordel parishioners have done a good job by holding swatch Kulshekar drive. yes My friend and I while going to Vamanjoor side observed all the Kulshkar parishioners joined together and were carrying out this cleanliness drive. Parish Priest of Kulshekar who has drawn this compaign needs to be appreciated and people who participated in the drive also to be praised. It is better to hold such drives once in a month. This drive be arranged in all the parishes.
