    Ramesh... Even same weather prevails in Kerala and I heard their food is spicier than us... This is not the reason. I agree with Bhandar Sir. What he mentioned is right. Henceforth too, may our almighty continue to bless us... Let's continue our prayer and also to the countries where they are affected more by this virus... May god heal them quickly 🙏🙏

    See Mangaluru is Paradise on Earth.
    All Gods reside here.
    Be it Car Festival,Christmas ,Eid,Holi,Guru Poornima or any other Tulu Naad festivities you get proof of it.
    This is Gods own land and we pray him to keep it that way protecting it from all evil.
    In return we must promise him that we will not disfigure it come what may and never act in a way that will stain it's reputation.

    May God Bless our Country. Hope the bad days will finish soon. Do not go out . Use face mask while going out and wash your hands regularly.
    Wash all things coming inside house. Clean door handles, cupboard handles, toilet seats, lift buttons. every day with disinfectant. Continue this good habit. This will reduce even other sickness.
