    Congratulations to you, Mr. Ronald Colaco on adding yet another impressive feather on your prestigious cap, this time with 'Bhartiya Mahantam Vikas Puraskar'. It is a matter of great pride and honour to us Mangaloreans and to all those who follow your tireless services to mankind.

    I have had the pleasure of meeting him on a few occasions and I was amazed with his simplicity and down to earth nature despite being a successful businessman, an indisputable Philanthropist and a candid social activist. What is remarkable is his involvement in innumerable charitable activities in India and abroad irrespective of cast, creed, colour and culture. While congratulating you, I strongly and firmly believe that you deserve much more laurels and recognitions than this Sir and I hope and pray that soon you will.

If every wealthy person start donating in India half of India poverty will diminish and hunger will go away. God will pour more wealth in you and your family so that more people will benefit.
