    3 Cheers to Mangalore:
    From Kasargod to Bahatkal.
    Strategic bases for Smuggling....
    either by Country crafts/boats or Flight.
    has been going on since ages.
    if ten carry gold 2 get caught.
    what about the rest.
    This is all DRAMA..
    All hand in to bottom.
    If any one fears the LAW this will never happen.
    Since the LAW remains in books.
    action is on ground is simply MONEY TALKS..
    This i snot nuclear Science...
    all know it.
    but who will bell the cat?
    Law makers are law breakers.
    When dr. Manmohan Singh liberalized Gold..
    there was no smuggling then..
    any one could officially carry and deliver to the banks.
    now, what is going on???
    once caught.confiscate all Gold.. smuggled goods.
    and Let them languish in per LAW.
    this is too bad..
    Its like AIR INDIA.. crew ( Govt run airlines) most are Carriers in the work..all covered/share the Deal.
    Unions protect them..
    its a Joke.
    we simply need one man called
    Dr. LEE KWAN YEW. man army.
    Look at the modern SINGAPORE TODAY.
    Make things happen.

    why are we so different?
    if yes,
    then make YOGA compulsory from kindergarten itself.
    Mind..Body and soul to be in SYNC

    Think of nation .. think of the people
    work is worship
    treat others like God.

    where does these golds go after seizing.
    why most of the times in mangalore airport.
