Pradeep Kalkura, formar president of Kannada Sahitya Parishat, Vishwanath Kundal, former manager of Syndicate Bank, Francis Cutinha, chairman of MCC Bank were present on the dias.

In his inaugural speech, the bishop Dr Aloysius said, "Roy and Lawrence are the best partners. They have been together in social and community activities from so many years. They are supportive of each other and the good friendship has today made them partners in a new business. I am sure that they will taste success in their new venture also. They need support from all of us.

"Everyone needs water, but nowadays there is shortage of clean water and so people are consuming bottled mineral water. Understanding this situation, Roy and Lawrance have started their mineral water plant. It is good for all. We all know that dangerous epidemics are spreading due to water pollution. The only solution to escape from this danger is consuming clean mineral water. I wish all the best to Roy and Lawrence and all success in their business," he added.

Mayor Kavita Sanil said, "Being in public service I know how shortage of clean water effects common people. Now Roy-L has come up with solution for clean and mineral-filled water. I welcome the new venture in our town. We at MCC are always ready to lend all support to industries. I congratulated both Roy and Lawrence."

Walter Nandalike said, "Success is the signature of Roy Castelino. He has never failed in his business, and will never fail in future too. He has all the qualities of a perfect businessman with social responsibility. He has immense respect for his mentors. Today too, we saw him honouring his first mentor Madhukar Malli with the seat of chief guest. Lawrence also has already proved his ability in leadership through hardwork. I wish all success to both in their business. No doubt , the product Roy-L will get wholehearted acceptance among the people of Mangaluru."

Roy Castelino welcomed the dignitaries and the gathering while Lawrance D'Souza rendered the vote of thanks. Stany Alvares compered the programme.

    First of all congratulations. I have a suggestion to implement.
    Please keep a small PFUND (Refund say 25 paise ~Rs.1 ) on used plastic water bottles, so that people will not throw them anywhere, these used water bottles recirculated at plastic plant. This way you also contribute to environment, and thus to the society. May you have a grand success.
