Good Initiative – NRI Forum

May 30th, 2010

NRI Forum Karnataka, the first of it’s kind initiative in getting the valued resources from NRI’s from state of Karnataka. The initiative of organizing the Global Investor Meet in Bengaluru on 3rd, 4th June 2010 indicated the long term vision of the BJP headed govt under the able leadership of Shri B.S.Yeddyurappa and Shri Capt. Ganesh Karnik.

I wish all the efforts and the vision of the state govt give best results.

It is a good bigining eventhough too late….infact most of the gulf countries are implimented nationalisation in employment. There are expectations to happen but without a proper design of policy. Without a noble intention of avoiding caste creed and coruption we may be able to reach the goal. Most of the people are suffering india from injustice and it is necessary to have a noble leader who has clean image – Usman Hyder Surathkal, (Ex Lecturer M.G. M. College Udupi)

Dear Ganesh,

Dear Sir,


The creation of blog indeed a great initiative which will augment interaction with NRI’s who are very much interested in India’s growth in general and of Bangalore in particular which is the focus of all NRI’s and Foreign nationals. NRI’s will find it quite close to any developed country.

Recently I visited B’lore for about 3 weeks and amazed at the developments. The International Airport with fantastic greenery is now way less than any best International Airport. Besides there is significant metamorphosis in infrastructure facilities. The A/C Volve Bus , good roads, several Super markets, Malls would certainly make B’lore a paradise to live.

However there are several areas that needs to be improved in order to make B’lore the best Metro in the World:

  1. There is urgent requirement to improve Roads.
  2. Sewerage and drainage needs to be improved. All open drainage needs to be closed.
  3. Pedestrian walking facilities to be made in every road.
  4. Adequate public toilets to be constructed with proper maintenance .
  5. Strict action against like using public place for urination and littering as done in other western countries to be implemented on priority. This can be done only after public toilet facilities are introduced.
  6. In foreign countries like China, Malaysia etc for outskirts toll is introduced and best roads are made. This can be done in B’lore also.
  7. All illegal constructions , encroachments should be pulled down and roads space should be adequate to take care of traffic.
  8. Power cut should be avoided.
  9. Separate lane for 2 and 3 wheelers suggested.
  10. Pollution should be controlled. Vehicle passing with fee once a year should be made compulsory. This will add revenue and also will reduce pollution.

11. Rename many places which are named as Halli meaning village. B’lore is no more village now.

  1. All Interior places like Mangalore, Udupi etc the roards are not in good condition. Adequate steps may be taken to improve the same.

If the aforesaid measures are taken Bengaluru will be the preferred destination in the world and can gain a unique place in the country and we will be the proud Kannadiga’s .

Hope you will give serious considerations to various suggestions given above.



Good initiative but ..

August 2nd, 2009

I am writing from Austin, Texas. Good initiative but the purpose of the initiative is fulfilled only if serious attention is paid to the concerns expressed.
I do not want to sound pessimistic to begin with. Unfortunately, that is how I feel after my visit home in June.

With all due respect to Mr Chief Minster, I would like to say, “Execution has failed on all front”. Guess, no dearth for funds but officials have no interest in betterment of the common people.
I can go on listing dozens of most obvious slackness in all areas. Anyway I will speakout some time later if it makes any difference.

Good Luck with your initiative. Despite all the problems, we LOVE out motherland.
