Scientoons visit  Mangalore, Karnataka

Mangalore is the gateway to Karnataka. Mangalore is named after the Goddess Mangaladevi. Traditionally, it was an important trading port with ties with the Persian Gulf states dating back to the 14th century. With its strategic location, it was occupied by a number of dynasties and colonial rulers, namely the Portuguese in the mid-16th century. In the 18th century, its control was contested by Haidar Ali and Tipu Sultan on one hand and the British on the other. Under the Mysore sultans (1763), it became a strategic ship building base, which was ceded to the British in 1799 after numerous sieges.
Mangalore is one of the fastest developing cities in India. Many multinational corporations and domestic corporations are opening their branches in Mangalore. Infosys Technologies has 2 Development Centers in Mangalore with over 3000 employees. Corporation Bank and Karnataka Bank have their headquarters inside the city and Syndicate Bank HQ is in Manipal. Other industries are MRPL, MCF, BASF, KIOCL, Ultratech Cement Plant are some of the other industries in the city.

I had the honour of inaugurating the UGC sponsored two days "Worlds Emerging Advancement in Chemical Technology" National conference held at Govinda Dasa College, Mangalore. I delivered the inaugural lecture on Nanotechnology in this national conference which was attended by many experts and students. Govinda Dasa College is a very great college which extremely clean, green and students are well disciplined. Govinda Dasa First Grade College, founded in the year 1967 and affiliated to Mangalore University offers Bachelor Degree courses in Arts, Commerce, Science, Business Management and Computer Application for both girls and boys. It is accredited by NAAC with a 'B' Grade. The College Management and Faculty believe that the best way to prepare the youth for a career is through quality education with emphasis on human values and virtues. The college, 14 k.m.s from Mangalore on N.H.66 is easily accessible by road and enjoys a breath-taking sea view.

While in Mangalore I had the honour of visiting New Mangalore Port trust with Er. Yogendra who is the Executive Engineer there. I was amazed to see the superb cleanliness, greenery all around and excellent shopping complex and ITDC shop. Hats off to the Chairman of the NMPT Mangalore for making it so environment friendly. Port is a modern all-weather port situated at Panambur, Mangalore (Karnataka State in South India), on the West Coast of India, 170 nautical miles South of Mormugao & 191 nautical miles North of Cochin Port. The Mangalore Harbour Projects Started in 1962, was completed in May 1974.
