Mangalore: Mom's death turns her dreams to dust - 8/4/2012



Mangalore, 05 August 2012: Nineteen-year-old Vaishnavis dreams lie in ruins.The physically challenged girl, who studies II BA at the St Aloysius College, lost her sole emotional and physical support on Friday night when Shashi, her mother, passed away.


She died of pneumonia and respiratory problems.Vaishnavi and Shashi shot to fame three years ago, when the daughter-mother duo began studying in the same college, St Aloysius Evening College here. Shashi was in BA final year, while her incapacitated daughter was in the second year.  Shashi, 36, used to carry her daughter, whose limbs, barring her right hand, are completely incapacitated.


Vaishnavi wanted to do her masters, and Shashi, who never lost faith in her daughters ability, used to be mother, companion, facilitator and emotional support to the apple of her eye.To strengthen her daughters resolve, Shashi, decided to take the SSLC exam along with her daughter in April 2009. Vaishnavi, a physically challenged girl, started to move at the age of five and crawled until she was eight.


She was admitted to the Silicon Valley Residential School at Sahakarnagar in Bangalore in 2004 and discontinued her studies after 2nd standard as she was forced to move to Mangalore along with her mother, due to family problems.


However, no school in Mangalore was ready to accept Vaishnavi as she was physically challenged. Determined to help her daughter in realising her dreams, Shashi approached St Aloysius Night School, which readily agreed to admit her.


Against all odds Shashi carried Vaishnavi to school and sat in the class to assist her daughter. A few months later, Shashi too thought of writing SSLC exams. Despite odds, both completed the exam successfully. Jubilant over their success, Shashi had told this correspondent: Vaishnavis desire to study gives me strength to carry her.


The two later completed PU and were presently pursuing BA in St Aloysius Evening College. Shashi would lock Vaishnavi inside the house whenever she went out on work. On several occasions, I return home around 8 pm and I was always worried about Vaishnavi, especially when the power goes off, as my daughter is unable to light even a candle. But she faces all odds bravely, Shashi had said. Shashi had told that she had great regards for St Aloysius School as it had opened the doors to her future when all others had closed.


After completion of her BEd, she wanted to teach the less privileged in the same school.  Fr Melvin John, the administrator of St Aloysius Evening College, said they have already initiated steps to arrange for Vaishnavi’s future.  We are concerned about Vaishnavi, as she is incapacitated and the only person who looked after her is no more, he said. Shashi’s dreamt of making Vaishnavi walk by herself. Everyday, I massage my daughters legs and hands with oil as per the direction of physiotherapist and I hope she will be able to walk independently soon, she had hoped. Now, Vaishnavi is left with only the wishes and hopes of her mother.

Prime Minister Assures Amendment to 1967 Customs Rule - 8/2/2012


Daijiworld Media Network - New Delhi

New Delhi, Aug 2 : Following the intense outcry from the NRIs residing in the Gulf against the strict implementation of 1967 Customs Act, which allows a male passenger to carry only Rs 10,000 worth of gold, and female passenger only Rs 20,000 worth of gold, Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh has assured a delegation of members of parliament that very soon, the customs rules will be amended. The new rule will be based on the quantity of gold imported and not on its value.

Daijiworld has carried an extensive campaign against the old rule, and on the problems faced by Gulf-bound passengers at Mangalore airport customs.

A representative from Daijiworld, armed with a memorandum and the feedback from the readers of daijiworld, met Vayalar Ravi, overseas affair minister, in New Delhi last week and submitted the documents to him.

The minister in his response to daijiworld clarified that similar appeal has been made by several Kerala-based organizations in the Gulf, and a delegation of members of parliament from Kerala had met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh recently.

The Prime Minister has assured that an amendment in the current customs law will be done.

The minister expressed his surprise over the attitude of Mangalore customs commissioner, and said that a responsible government officer must respond to the queries of the common people. "We will take serious action, if such things continue," he assured. It may be recalled that, D Purushotham, customs commissioner of Mangalore had refused to give customs guidelines to the media and failed to answer genuine questions last month. Instead, he provided a 100-page rule book, and asked passenge to educate themselves before they travel.

Daijiworld requests all noted NRE organisations abroad to send their memorandum to the central government MPs and ministers and put more pressure on the Prime Minister so that the 45-year-old Customs Act is amended very soon.

Mangalore : Sriramulu Promises Moon If Brought to Power - 8/2/2012

mcMangalore: The Swabhimana Sankalpa Yatra headed by BSR Congress President B Sriramulu reached the city on August 2.  The part of the yatra began from Jyoti circle and culminated at the city town hall. 

Addressing the party workers and the gathering, Rakshitha said that the recent attack on Morning Mist Homestay and the assault on girls is strongly condemned by the BSR Congress. When we were in Karwar we have seen the TV footage of assaulting girls.  Our own people don't protect women in the state, but the BSR Congress will surely work for the protection of women and girls in the state, she assured.  She urged the college students to support the BSR Congress and strengthen the party, so that the BSR Congress will win in the forthcoming elections. 




The regional president of BSR Congress, Girish Rai addressing the gathering said that Sriramulu is very much concerned about farmers, he fought for the rights of the farmers.  But when the election comes, Karnataka people think only about two parties, they are congress and BJP.  In 4 years of ruling the BJP has changed three chief ministers, that is their greatest gift to the citizens of Karnataka.  This district has given two Chief Ministers to the state, and there were many opportunities for the development of the district, but both did not use the opportunities, he blamed. 

Rai further continued saying, In the next election we will contest from 8 constituencies and win in all the constituencies, Sriramulu will be the chief Minister.  There are many farmers in our State who are born, live and die in poverty.  If Sriramulu becomes the Chief Minister we are planning to give three cents of land to the farmers which will help to eliminate poverty.

Sriramulu addressing the gathering said that it is unbelievable to see huge supporters in Mangalore.  He said in Karnataka there are two strong parties they are congress and BJP, both are not for the people. Under the blessings of 6 crores people BJP government came into power but the same government played with 6 crore peoples sentiments.  BJP government is filled with corruption, they are fighting for power and the chair in the party and none of the minister is bothered to work for the development of the state.  Former CM Yeddyurappa promised to give Rs 1 Lakh each for every new born girl child under the scheme of "Bhagyalakshmi', but it did not reach anyone. In the name of Baghyalakshmi, Yeddyurappa made Rs 300 crores, there is no proper pension for widows, BJP government's achievement in Karnataka is a big Zero, said Sriramulu.

Sriramalu added saying, Congress government is ruling in the centre but the government is unable to implement a strong Lokpal bill because most of the Congress leaders are involved in various Scams. In coastal Karnataka, the election is based on caste. During elections people vote for the candidate belonging to their caste, why, is Hindu blood red and the blood of Muslims black? he questioned.  He said that the blood which is flowing in every human being is red, it is not based on caste. 

Further he assured to give free laptops to every student who completes tenth standard, and  Free education from 1 standard till the student willing to pursue his/her education. He also assured to give free medical check up in multi speciality hospitals and to compensate the students till they get a job.  He also assured that he will make it mandatory to buy the products directly from the farmers with good returns. He said we have formed BSR congress for the benefit of the people and to work for the development of the people. Everyone knows that the BSR Congress is growing fast and many are joining the party.  We don't need high ranking people in our programme, but we need the common people's support.

A few new members were inducted to the party by Sriramulu  on this occasion.

Mangalore: Police Inaction cause for Home Stay Attack - C Manjula - 8/2/2012


By Violet Pereira, Team Mangalorean

Mangalore: Chief of the State Commission  For Women, C Manjula,  briefed the media about the assault on girls at the Morning Mist Homestay at Padil on july 28, at the Circuit House, Kadri Hills here on August 2.

Addressing the mediapersons, Manjula said that she visited two of the girls who had been assaulted at the ' Morning Mist ' by the assailants. " After meeting them , listening and inquiring about the happenings, I was totally shocked and depressed. I refuse to disclose the names of the victims. The police inaction has been one of the cause for this incident to occur. Eight months before, the residents of that locality had complained to the Kankanady Police station about the illegal activities in the particular resort, but I have learnt that the police did not take any action. Even the residents of the locality have given a memorandum to me about the disturbance caused by people coming to the resort " said Manjula.

According to Manjula, after meeting the girls, she revealed to the media that, one of the girl invited her friends, who were studying with her when she was doing her PUC, for her birthday celebration, but they were not aware of the party being held at the Morning Mist. The friends had come to the resort wearing their College uniforms, but later changed to party dress which was brought by the birthday girl for them to wear.

Manjula said according to the police report which was given to her, she said that the resort was unauthorized, running illegally and there was no permission for such parties. Also the said to be leader of the assailants was from the near by area. She said Gurudath Kamath and Vijaykumar who had organized the party are not students. 

One of the principal of the college has said that he will support and counsel the girls to come out from the shock, another college principal has decided to debar the girls from the college. The girls who have  gone under the trauma will have social, emotional, family and educational pressure and they need moral support. Instead of taking action on them Manjula said "it is better to support the girls to increase their spirit to come out and fight against the attack on them". She also said that she would talk to the principal and the vice chancellor of Mangalore university and discuss about retaining the students and other issues.   

The parents of the two girls have said that they have been very uncomfortable about the coverage in the media, and that the media was repeatedly highlighting the faces of the innocent girls. She urged the media to be cautious about such issues, specially while telecasting or publishing girls photographs or clips. 

She also stated that the Dakshina Kannada Police failed in taking proper action. Police should have taken immediate action when such things happen. The police department must be pro-active. Government officials, college heads and the society should join hands to eliminate such crimes happening in the City. There have been continuous attacks on girls. Police department should monitor and keep an eye on groups involved in such crimes or theft, and members belonging to such groups should be made to show their faces everyday at the police station and to check their activities.  Police should trace groups who are involved in immoral activities and misguiding women. All the organizations should control their members from being involved in illegal activities and taking law into their own hands. 

She also said that the police are inactive in Mangalore and have failed in taking action when such crimes are committed. Owner of the resort and the manager of the resort  must be questioned.  We have filed a case under the prevention of offence act and arrested 15 culprits so far, 12 more are yet to be arrested, said Majula.  She also assured to meet the Home minister and Chief Minister to hand over the report on the attack and insist on strict action against the culprits.
