Many envy Nagermutt and its possessions and people - one such legacy is octogenarian Mr. Baptist D’Souza, now running 88, was born in a poor family, grown to be an inspiration to all around him, and lived like an ‘uncrowned King’ of this ward, for the last three decades.

Barkuronline.com is proud to present Dr. & Sr. Helen Consilia Fernandes of Moodahadu Kudru, as our very first female POM, (Personality of the Month.)  I  had approached her in the very first month when Barkur.com was introduced, but her humility did not allow her to disclose any information about herself.  Apparently her brother’s arm twisting tactics helped us to present this long awaited, long overdue lady POM.  Please note that there are plenty of ladies deserving their share as POMs in this site.

Kishoo, Barkur.

Dear Barkurians, the simple portals of ‘Window to the World’, such as “Pedruchi Chaavi” and this ‘Barkuronline.com’, are our present means of sharing information.  We have appealed this, and it’s up to you to take advantage of this free service, as I am doing.  Let it not be said that James Fernandes is showing off his relatives. This opportunity is equally accessible to each one of you.  In a buffet dinner, don’t blame the lousy table service if you go home hungry!

That was a pleasant Wednesday, Parish Feast Day evening, in December, in 70’s; the then great banner, the St. Peter’s Association, rather better known ‘Saanth Pedrucho Sangh’ - presenting their ‘event of the year’ – the social drama… and two or three epoch making scenes already successful to inculcate curiosity and grip over the minds of drama crazy spectators of Barkur and the neighbourhood. There comes a sudden announcement – the song ‘Noman tuka ye Bhagi Avoiponna’ and the handsome man makes his entry on the dais with microphone, the spell-bound listeners give their 100% attention both by heart and ears, once the 6 - 7 minutes emotional melody comes to its high pitch close, the huge, long round of applause to salute, the on leave, local hero, with magical voice, Shri Wilfred Gonsalves, - for many of us Wilfiyaab in general.

Dr.N.C.Kalkura
Dr.N.C.Kalkura

To be a Practicing Physician in Barkur, one has/had to be a godly man or a man of charity, because, in the 50s or 60’s obtaining even the cost of pills from the patients was a challenge indeed, forget about any fee for medical services such as diagnosis, consultancy, prescriptions or for home visits.  Dr. N.C. Kalkur was one of such godly men of Barkur.  Barkuronline is proud to present this humble doctor, as POM, who not only saved lives, but touched the lives of many a Barkurians for better.

In order to be featured as a Person of the Month, (POM), we had given ourselves some criteria that this person should contribute substantially to Barkur a little more than any average Barkurian. This contribution can be achieved in any form.  An athlete too can and does bring lots of pride, honor, and prestige to his/her school or to Barkur in general.  Hence, dear readers, Barkuronline.com is proud to present such an athlete, a renowned sports personality, by the name Michael  Peter D'Souza of Pandeshwar.

If anyone has not heard of Mr. Kurady Kalkura, he/she must not be from Barkur, Brahmavar or Udupi! Yes, Barkuronline team too was aware of him, however, this team finally managed to get a few details of him, lately!  Thus we are very proud to present, even though long overdue, Mr. K. Sadashiva Kalkura, as the Personality of the Month, POM.
