Its the 66th year of India being freed from the British Rule on this August 15th, 2013. So what do Indians actually do on this day, being a holiday?
A few patriot’s, will wake up early, join at a government place or a school or so for the flag hoisting ceremony, sing the National Anthem, and then just continue with their daily routine lives.
There a few others, who join along to do something different, they go out of their daily normal schedule, join the less privileged people at Ashram’s or Health Cares or may Hospital’s, or even road’s and celebrate Independence Day with them.
While there are the other major part of the few, who wake up late, go out for a outing, do some shopping, eat out, sleep for the whole day or go for a movie, and ask them whats Independence Day and all they would say is, its a
Holiday and a Dry Day where liquor is not sold 😉

Mark 12:27 Jesus says, “He (God) is not the God of dead, but the God of living”
Its always been a very true experience for me in my life as how God has been working in different instances of my life. And a few of these instances I do share them online to testify to how God’s blessings are showered on us, and maybe somewhere you could also be able to see how God is working in your life.
This instance would be a little funny and weird one, but God did hear my prayer in jiffy in my need and I was so happy that I had to share it.
It all happened during my travel from Mangalore to Bangalore on last Sunday night in a Sleeper Bus. A chilly night, cool breeze blowing and my mistake of having a good meal of Conji and Curds before the journey all led to a unrest-ful night of me longing for restroom breaks.
Are you a Mangalorean? Have you lived in Mangalore for more than 10-15yrs? If yes for both, then if I ask you the best of the roads, parks, cafe’s, hotel’s, snack counters in Mangalore would you be able to tell me? A real thought provoking stuff right? Never thought someone would ask you this someday.
Yes recently we have had the the 3 hungry men do reviewing the food places in Mangalore, Manipal, Udupi and also even in Bangalore and Doha. But what about otherwise?
Red FM 93.5 the Mangalore division Radio Station of Sun Network, had recently started a poll and survey under the name ‘Red Chappu‘ to find the best of the best roads, parks, juice corners, place for Goli Baje (Mangalorean Snack), Fish Fry, Neer Dosa (another Mangalorean Delicacy), Ice Creams and Beach.
After a period of 3 days voting by the listeners of the Radio, they have come out with the besties of Mangalore, and they are..
After a long hectic week of work, all you need is a relaxing and resting Sunday! But hey that’s not always the answer for the stressed-out work week! There are many other solutions to relax, rejuvenate and maybe even relive the good ol’ memories! My solution for the last weekend was a Cousins Day out at Fernandes!
It all started with my first cousin in the Castelino family Shaila Fernandes (now married to my Bavoji Richard Fernandes) inviting the cousins in Bangalore for a weekend family get together at her place! A plan we had started discussing over 6 months, but never got the time and opportunity to bring it to action! But atlast the day, time and the best opportunity all was set in place, when Jeethan, Jason and myself set our feet for a awesome time at SJR Redwoods Cyprus tower!
Have you had one tight slap experience from God?
