BARKUR-ONLINE, your home town at a cursor-y glance..

Perhaps Uncle James Fernandes believed in that home is where the heart is. For me it’s more rooted – emotionally, literally and figuratively and for the generation preceding both of us, for youngsters like Austin and Franklyn it’s an ironical, the home is where their hard disc or laptop is…….!

Ten years, rather 10 years and 10 months gone by, since Kishore Gonsalves, the ‘showman of Barkur’, ventured something unique, for his hometown, a common platform barkuronline a web portal uniting Global Barkurians!!


Haladi Shrinivasa Shetty

Nicknamed, rather popularly known as ‘Vajpayee of Kundapur’, Halady Srinivas Shetty is a born leader. Till the other day he was our respected MLA. His leadership qualities were well known from his school and college days. In these days of corrupted political sphere, HSS is rare breed of assertive leader who will not compromise on values, righteousness and self respect.

About some four years back we wrote an article in Barkur-on-line pages, on the eve of Assembly elections, titled ‘Its JP Hegde vs. HS Shetty in Kundapur’ A man who scored over a personality like J.P.Hegde by 19,000 plus popular votes, and romped home for the consecutive third time, to be an MLA, definitely had something unique, to his credit.

The Visit of His Excellency the Bishop Rt. Rev. Dr. Henry D'Souza - to Muscat

A special joyful moment to Barkurians in Oman –

The Visit of His Excellency the Bishop Rt. Rev. Dr. Henry D’Souza – to Muscat……….

Adieus to Fr. Aranha and Warm welcome to Fr. Alban D'Souza.

‘Barkur parish’ having a colorful history of almost 150 long years, had the privilege to be served by great priests in the past, who were mainly responsible to keep the Catholic faith live, responded to the needy……….especially till the last decade, provided best of the elementary education through its famous Mary knoll School in the locality.

Of course each and every household grateful to all of them who served in the past….., now in heavenly abode,  served here few years ago and now serving elsewhere, also those great priests rose to great heights in recognition and authority… but we are fortunate ones to be served by them once upon a time….!



Very Rev. Msgr. Denis Jerome DSouza

All of us Barkurian’s devoutly offer our prayers at the magnificent St. Peter’s Church premises – its very exteriors…. more precisely its interiors, not only create a serene holy atmosphere to praise the glory of Almighty but also  inculcate  proud feelings in all of us, to offer gratitude’s to the people who provided this place of worship. It’s very true, most of us don’t know who the mastermind is or architect, planned and executed such a marvelous Barkur Church structure as early as about a century back, got inaugurated in the blessed hands of then Bishop H.E. Paul Perini on 28th May, 1923.

Late Herald Sequeira

A life lived for others than self, in fond remembrance of….


A founder member of CYM Barkur, when he was just 13 of teenage years in 1976, (its founder director, at present the Bishop of Bellary Diocese Rt. Rev. Dr. Henry D’Souza) and since then, was so closely, passionately and actively associated with it for the next 15 years, being its office bearer in different capacities ranging Cultural Secretary to President……… then moving to Bombay, here too playing a pivotal role, hand in hand with other like minded people, in mobilizing youth force to come together 1984 to 1988 and to form SPCYA  (St. Peter’s Catholic Youth Association Barkur – Mumbai) in 1985 followed  till the foundation of today’s giant Barkurian SPA (St. Peter’s Association Barkur - Mumbai) way back on 17th April, 1988.

The Expressions

The Expressions – a colorful decade of purposeful existence…..

The Expressions, today a reservoir of enormous goodwill, a popular banner, an household name in the eyes of art lovers, in this northern part of the Diocese of Mangalore and a wonderful platform to provide an opportunity to demonstrate the talents of Members…. and in others as well, to the society, as it was formed to serve and support the members to exhibit best in them, with excellence and dedication, thereby contributing for the mutual growth, recognition and development.

Migration & Barkurians

MIGRATION & BARKURIANS………some facts and few effects…..

At leisure, had an habit of looking back to our fore fathers and, many of us can notice we the Coastal Christians and more so Barkurian’s are attracted to migration, from time to time, in search of better pastures - may it be higher education, a rewarding career, high standard of living, better health and wealth……That’s the reason we are now found everywhere and scattered in every nook and corner of this globe.  Surely it’s not an easy task, adjust to a new place, surrounding and atmosphere or climate, but we are very flexible, friendly, adjustable, and tolerable and will be part and parcel of the new place, mingle with people very easily, irrespective of caste, color or religion. Moreover we are very quick to learn any foreign language and their customs and practices……!
