Belgaum is a beautful place my native n very dear to my heart n i miss it every single day. Progress is good, good to hear investments done. But then keep it green, clean n natural please don’t demolish it. Please preserve the natural beauty of the city. The only thing I hate is people fight in the name of religion. why on the earth do we need fight in the name of religion can their be no peace and humanity existing any more. Can we all not have respect for each religion n stop the fight can we not be a good example for humanity. Can we stop judging people based onto caste n creed. Can we not live together happily and peacefully and make our city a beautiful place to live. And we only look for good in people and no hatred for each other. My heart aches when i hear people fight in the name of religion. No religion teaches to fight then y r the hearts filled with dirt n hatred in the name of religion. Learn to love , live to love. let their be only love n peace. Lets make the Earth a better place to live.
Industrial Association, please some how, convince IT giants like Infosys, TCS, Wipro, Accenture, Capgemini, HCL, Congnizant etc.
Once these investor enter our city, all other investors will get pulled by its own to our city.
