    belgaum is rich,
    belgaum is poor.
    belgaum is fast,
    belgaum is slow.

    Little bit sweet,
    and little bit sour.

    Sometimes it’s hot
    but sometimes too cold.

    Mornings r energetic
    & evenings r electric.

    Noons r lazy but
    Nights r crazy..

    And any one U ask,
    he always say “B busy”
    Dude, life n belgaum
    Is not so easy…!

    There is lot of Masti with
    little bit of Maska…

    can’t live, w/out celebration !

    are all belgaum chaat..
    Relishing it with spicy chutney,Sol kadi is no easy art..

    From popcorn to ice-cream, all sold on cart,

    belgaum o belgaum you’re always close to my heart.!

    Where rikshaw
    usually run on time,
    And violently rushing
    for a seat is not a crime.

    Here 3 PM for lunch and
    12 AM to dine,

    People face hardships,
    but still say “it’s fine”.!

    Kannada, urdu, Marathi, hindi,
    Everyone together celebrate Eid and Diwali,

    Holi is colorful and Ramzan is cheerful,

    Spend some time here and your life will be unforgetful.!
