    Three to four great judges came from Karkal - Moodubidri belt. Justice Hegde, Justice D'Cunha and Justice Nazeer, A few celebrities also came from the same belt. Freeda Pinto, Shilpa Shetty, Veerappa Moily (Ex-Minister) and ............Most of them had a humble beginning.

    Its pleased to know that Justice Abdul Nazir, residence of Moodbidri is in such top ranks in India. I am glad to know that Justice Abdul Nazir is one of the five judges in Ayodhya case. Top of that I am too glad. Because Justice Abdul Nazir is my classmate, my bench mate and had one family. I have so many memories which we had. One of them we took participation in Fancy dress in which he was as President and myself as Shah of Iraq. What a similar future, we are following. I could share those photos, unfortunately its at my home in India. Unfortunate that I couldn’t meet since 1983, he bace lawyer.
    .Wishing him further a better future

    Proud of my native place and village .never heard such a personality exists in this village . Congrukatikns and hats off .

    We had no graduates till 1980 and those two colleges in Moodbidri had no great exposure at state or national level and had move to mangalore or Bangalore . I guess this judge had taken lots of struggle and faced hardships in his life and I Congratulate him for his achievements and proud of my native place .

    I guess he is from karianagdy or kanthavara cross in Belvai to be specific about his birth place .

    Hats off to you sir .
