Prof. Y. Mohan Rao

The name synonymous with Commerce & Accountancy  in Barkur…..


We always used to tell our colleagues and contemporaries, few Lecturers who taught us will be remembered for life time…..There are hundreds of commerce graduates hailing from Barkur and surrounding, who learned the basics of Accounts keeping, became Accountants, serving in Banks as officers and Managers, Lecturers, Financial consultants, Chartered and Cost Accountants, Company Secretaries etc., not only in various cities in India but also abroad. PUC Commerce classes were the beginning of a professional career, yes, after SSLC, there was an unwritten law, rather a trend – those who passed with first class opt / at times forced to enroll for Science (PCMB), Second class – Commerce – (HECA) and just pass in Arts – (HEPS). This practice / trend forcefully put few in streams they didn’t know or had any liking, some sailed through… rather put into the water, learnt swimming, alas, few spoiled their career, at least I know a dozen of them, with no love for science, now repenting in leisure.

WALTER D ALMEIDA - A young, dynamic and successful NRI Entrepreneur

A polite and cultured colleague during our CYM days in Barkur, in early 80s, who was studying in local National Junior College, in Science stream was, rather an introvert, but a keen observer and a dedicated member, sincerely carrying out the big or small responsibilities entrusted to him….. After PUC, he completed his graduation i.e. B.Sc. in St. Philomena’s College, Puttur…..Today he is a successful businessman in UAE employing over 55 people in his enterprise….No success came overnight and the sheer hard work, honesty and patience of three decades now paying rich dividends….Yes, we are more than happy and proud to talk and write these few lines about Walter D’Almeida from Halekody, Barkur, a role model to youngsters to make their mark in the business and commercial fields in days and years to come…..

Rev. Sr. Noelle Marie of Sacred Heart of Jesus
Rev. Sr. Noelle Marie of Sacred Heart of Jesus

A young talented girl completes her SSLC exam with flying colors from the local National Higher Secondary School (Todays National Junior College) in May 1960. The then Headmaster of the High school, Shri. PN Bhoja Rao expects his favorite and brilliant student to go for College studies in MGM Udupi….that too was whispered in the ears of her proud parents and elder brothers…..Ultimately she was admitted for her BA studies in prestigious St Agnes College, Mangalore, opting to reside in the College Hostel…..On obtaining bachelor degree, with a first class, probably ‘first woman graduate from Furtado Family’, in May 1966, yes she is none other than Gratia Daisy Furtado…….

Little about our New Vicar of Barkur.
Little about our New Vicar of Barkur.

Since June 2017, we were planning to write few words of introduction, about our New Vicar of Barkur, Rev. Fr. Philip Neri Aranha, in our website. By now most of the parishioners are familiar to him, since he personally visited most of the households…..Moreover he paid visit to Bangalore too to be the Guest during the patron St. Peter’s feast held in July 2017.

JAMES FERNANDES
A rare source of encouragement, guiding light to Barkur-online Team……!

 

We have read good number of articles written by Mr. Fernandes in various web-pages. Of course Barkur on line pages treasure few such works to preserve for ages to come. He had that rare quality to handle wit, humor and sarcasms simultaneously at a time, in his writings and commentaries. He had that lion’s heart to call a spade a spade. Empty praises never come from his pen, he mean what he writes! Moreover, his in depth knowledge on any given subject astonishes any reader!! His vast knowledge in data analysis using SAS in clinical or pre-clinical studies, exhibited systematically in his various writings...

REV. FR. VALERIAN MENDONCA, M.A., B.Sc., B.Th., Diploma in Communications.

 Barkur cordially welcomes you…..

The new parish priest of St. Peter’s Church, Barkur,

 

REV. FR. VALERIAN MENDONCA, M.A., B.Sc., B.Th., Diploma in Communications.

 

Barkur parish must be fortunate to have the services of great and renowned priests in general and in the new millennium in particular. Especially Late V. Rev. Fr. Sylvester D’Souza, Rev. Fr. Remigious Aranha, and recently transferred Rev. Fr. Alban D’Souza always lived and served Barkurians with love and authority and it’s a pleasant memory….We always feel, this good fortune may be because our parish has given lot many priests to the Church and in return our parish always privileged to be served by one such good shepherd………!

As we mentioned earlier, it was no secret that, soon Fr. Alban will be transferred to nearby Kalmady on 4th June, 2012. The new incumbent is Fr. Valerian Mendonca, who will take over reins of this historical parish dedicated to Apostle St. Peter, tomorrow – 3rd June, 2012.

Mr Louis D'Costa
Mr Louis D'Costa

'The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your potential….. These are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence” – Eddie Robinson.

These were days of erstwhile CYM of 1977 when I was studying in SSLC at NJC Barkur, just an year or two old movement, used to organize thus far unknown events to Barkurians, like Children’s Day, Youth Day, Elder’s Day, Catechism Day etc. – and among others one important hand behind the success - undoubtedly the most talented Secretaries the Association proud to have, is tall and handsome Louis D’Costa. Yes the face of this Youngman might have faded away from the memories of present generation, while me talking about 30 long years back story! A generation is gone by… and it is his son Lloyd’s turn now, to be in the limelight in platforms such as CYM, who is studying at Milagres College, Kallianpur – first year B.Com.

Frankly speaking me too is one fascinated by Louis workmanship as Secretary from whom  many learned a lot, so as me and motivated to be one - (surely not able to master the art from this mentor) is this Louis D’Costa.
