  1. wow…now I know I can post a comment here. I used to post my comments on the blog side and I was always wondering why my comment appeared after 2 to 3 days.
    Anyways, guys I lived in belgaum since 1965 to 91. It used to be nice n clean and cool place. Now a days I dont live there but still its my birth place and still have my folks there and still vist them. Honestly it has become a dirty place, garbage piled up and the corporation doesnt not care worse yet the city corprates are a bunch yahoos. They have thier own selfish hidden Marathi or kannada or whatever langauge agenda. Classic example was the drama they created when a kannada mayor was elected. How many times in the history of the corporation a non Marathi mayor was elected without drama.
    My point is all the people are responsible for the city to be kept clean. If all the residents do not do thier part, then belgaum will be a big dump yard.

    Please feel free to send feed back.
