August 7, 2021. Every year on this day, we pause to count our blessings.

It’s been a Fourteen-year journey of touching the various aspects of Belagavi, that which makes us wish to continue our endeavor of bringing to the fore, the little things that stand for “All About Belgaum”, our love for the city.

Everybody loves their hometown. There is an umbilical connection with the hometown which cannot be written down in words, AAB wishes to be one.

I started out this website as a chronicler of our combined heritage. For over the past Quattuor-decennial, it has been a process of learning, sharing, and caring that has today enabled us to become an integral part of the lives of thousands of people who share our passion for this wonderful place called Belagavi.

As we move into our 15th year of operations, we wish to thank all those who have made this journey possible, pleasurable, and worthwhile.

We believe that a community blog must be unbiased on all grounds. Sometimes not posting about a particular event or even showcasing an event can hurt sentiments. People set expectations and when you don’t live up to them, they get angry with you. Irrespective of what people have to say, I have always tried to maintain an unbiased tone, to the best of my abilities. And I must thank you for having acknowledged that.

AAB has been doing a wonderful job in a highly impartial manner as you have seen for a long. It is a supporter of no party or politician, but a platform for every person of Belagavi. It has grown into the most authentic canvas depicting various facets and issues of the city and its residents.


The journey of 14 years

AAB wishes to be the source of unity and harmony as we acquaint people with various aspects of various cultures and religions that our wonderful city is blessed with. Maybe small, but we did create an impact by giving a vent to the voice of the citizens of Belagavi. It doesn’t matter how big or small you are, being heard is important.

We are just a small drop in this ocean of information where we have tried to get the Better of Belagavi to you.

We wish to continue our journey in an unbiased and unprejudiced manner. It is in making a difference that we seek to be different. Let your comments come in, the bouquets and the brickbats, for we love both. It is an indicator of your unflinching love for unbiased coverage of the pulse of the city. Together we walk, for many years to come.
