    My dear friend Kota Poojari : I have heard of you, because I know you indirectly you are a man of integrity and a person who does things apropriately to the best for the larger benefit of the people whom you serve. When you go through these Columns, written by very many people herein, you will understand them better. As majority of people opine and desire that the monies could be used in a better way. Yes, I do agree with them whole heartedly. A HOSPITAL could be errected in that very place and constructed in the very Name your Action Committee desires along with Quarters for Doctors, Specialists, Nurses and Staff, etc. etc. etc. which will'ultimately be "A Well known Complex" to recon with; and " A Great Name " will live and last for ever ! A beautiful area will thus develop with good roads, etc. Gardens and play ground for children, etc. etc. PLEASE DO THINK ABOUT IT ! MANY MANY THANKS ! GOD WILLING ! BEST OF LUCK !!!

    still Bhavans!..every year every Govt gave crores to community bhavans , ..but when Covid hit, do these Bhavans used for temporary Hospitals/Quarantine centers..where are these Bhavans..Govt blamed for not having enough Hospitals/free centres..if Bhavans really built on tax payers money then why its not used during Covid, who prevented.. let communities build bhavan on their fund, Govt should focus on Hospital n schools..

    Need of the hour! After few years these Bhavans (if completed ) will die their own death. You expect the young generation in these bhavans? Create water park, adventure sports park, theme parks etc.
