A compassionate Teacher of yesteryears and a crusader against all odds......  

 

There was a time, then NHSS (National Higher Secondary School) Barkur, had at least 3 – 4 Christian teachers in their staff, in 50’s and 60’s......Today I don’t think the trend continues..... The legendary names like below are just few picks from the long list.......Denis D’Silva, later principal of Manipal Jr. College, JFA Lewis, Leticia Mary D’Sa, Nun sisters – Hilda Carvalho & Hilda Crasta, Albert Picardo, JRM Picardo, Albert Fernandes, Henry Edward Roche- later a known civil Contractor in Bombay, Violet Britto, Benedict D’Souza of Shankerpura, Josephine Vaz of Mabukal, Rudolph Cordero, Richie Cutinha, Augustine D’Lima, George Kannipilly.....as the long list continues.......

The life and times of young Praveen Carvalho is an open book! One need not elevate to match his achievement. Home to the renowned tourist destination Udupi and at its very entrance, one finds ‘JAE's Wheel Masters’. First ever Computerized Wheel Alignment and Automatic Tyre changer unit  in Udupi district, along with tire dealership, strategically located on NH 17 (now NH 66) near Kinnimulky -  whenever one look at it, while travelling by bus, gives the proud feel - it a ‘Barkurian’s Enterprise…..!

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.

Mr Barkur Dharmaraja Shetty
Mr Barkur Dharmaraja Shetty

We at ‘Team, barkuronline.com’, hesitant to attempt to draw the true portrait of such a tall and great personality for long  – we doubt, our restricted 2 pages will no way do justice to the man and his family, as his was / is a wonderful personality – he is a renowned Chemical Engineer of the country today, a leading businessman having spread its branches all over India and even abroad, a social worker, model to imitate by any businessman, a leader led from the front both in business and yeoman service, a educationist touched, untouched avenues and a person never forgotten his humble beginning in native Barkur, a generous donor to needy hands and envisaged dozens of projects only to motivate, less privileged and youngsters of the locality.

Friends, you will be amazed to read the following as we…. a man, a part of rich Barkurian spirit at large, whose heart beat for the less fortunate one………

Presenting Barkur Dharmaraja Shetty
