      I support the idea of Mr Simon Just as we had "Aye Mere Watan ke Logon" by C Ramachandra Sung By Latha M During the war we need a similar song that will bring all Mangaloreans united together and rekindle our Faith and love for our religion and our culture

      It is good to have a concept like “Gulf Voice of Mangalore”. According to me the need of the hour is to boost the general knowledge of today’s younger generation. Our next step is towards to have a show like “Quiz Master of Mangalore”. Think about it, because many of us even don’t know who is our ‘Chief Minister’ and who is our ‘Prime Minister’.

      Hello Gulf Voice of Mangalore,can you compose some songs relating the church attacks in M'lore,Udipi,Belthangadi by Hindu terroris Bajrang Dal,VHP and the goonda police? Sing them and narrate the audience,how police beat the christians mercilessly like animals.This will be surely a relief to those who suffered a lot.
