Belgaum PWD in a hurry! Paints even private buildings at government costs

4:51 PM Posted by ukmad

Kannada Sahitya Bhavan, a privately owned trust at the Chennama Circle has got itself a white wash at the governments cost.
Thanks to the governmental work under taken by the PWD in view of the Legislature session beginning from Jan 16, the PWD mistook the Kannada Sahitya Bhavan building to be a government building and white washed it, but when the officers came to know about it being held by private trust the painting was stopped immediately.
The PWD has a list prepared of about 140 buildings in Belgaum to be white washed in the view of the session. All the circles are also being painted and renovated.
Instead of doing all this why can’t the PWD make good roads.

Patch Work Scrap work: Comparison

1:06 PM Posted by ukmad

Continuing with my last story of Patch Work Scrap work posted yesterday, see these two pictures.


One taken today and the other one was taken during the visit of L K Advani to the city when the same road was patched.
Can you spot the difference between the two, I at least can’t.
This is how the same road is patched twice in 2 months and the end result is the same.
This is how the Govt. builds our infrastructure. And you see those big ads on TV and print media asking us to pay our advance tax and income tax so that the govt. Will patch the same road twice in 2 months and the end result march end one more patch work.

So, what are your plans for the New Year?

Al of you must have asked this question to some one or must have answered it. Belgaum is getting ready for the New Year bash.

All hotels big and small have made massive arrangements in form of tables, special lighting and few even special menus.

There are those fixed venues where you have the New Year bash. Millennium Gardens is one of them with DJ, etc etc. Hotel Shankam also has a DJ, Dance Floor to welcome the New Year. Hotel Adrash Palace is also not behind; there is DJ there also. VITS has its own plans on the poolside.

All the smaller only food restaurants are busy getting the food ready for tomorrow. Niyaz’s pick and pack has made special arrangements at its outlets.

All th0se planning to booze out by drinking will have to get in their stocks tomorrow only as the liquor stores were shut for 2 days including today o account of accounting of by polls.

So, all must have planned to go somewhere with someone for the New Year, Have a safe and Happy New Year 2009. All those consuming liquor I request you not to drink and drive, if you have to drink, then drink but do not drive then.

To all my readers a Happy New Year 2009!
Glory to God in Heaven, who unto man his son hath given; while angels sing with tender mirth, a glad new year to you and Belgaumites, India and the world.

Road Patchwork; scrap work

9:39 PM Posted by ukmad

The Congress Road from Military Mahadev to Gogte Circle is in very bad shape. It was half patched when L K Advani had visited Belgaum. However, the work was very shoddy.

Today evening I was surprised to see the road being closed and board put up road closed work in progress.

Nevertheless, when I saw what was going it was disheartening. Potholes were being with boulders & red mud and KHADI which is used to make the whole road and small Khadi which is used to put up on the road was being sprinkled on the patched up pot hole.
Ye India Kab sudhrega? Kab ? Jab hum sab Sudhernge aur we vote and elect good and able persons on the civic authorities and state and national levels.

Belgaum IT expo 09: your place to be for IT products

5:21 PM Posted by ukmad

IT, IT and IT, two small words but with a huge knowledge base, all of you have heard about IT expo being held in so many cities, many of you must have gone there and now your chance to be a part of it in Belgaum at the Millennium Gardens on 25TH,26TH,27TH JAN 2009.
This event is being organized by “Concept Exhibitors, Hubli” and “Rotary Club of Venugram-Belgaum”. Concept Exhibitors have already proved their expertise in organizing IT Events by successfully orchestrating First Ever ITEXPO@Hubli-Dharwad.
This IT EXPO-09 is focused on creating the end customer awareness about various IT products available today under one roof. From the past as many years of IT selling in Belgaum, there have been a lot of single brand IT events/carnivals/road shows organized which concentrate on only one particular brand. This decreases the public influx as people loyal only to that brand visit.
In ITEXPO-09 all the major brands will be at the customer disposal to choose from and decide. The customer can have a hand on experience with all brand products and discuss about product features and pricing in detail with the company representatives. All the participants will fight tooth and nail to sell their respective products on the basis of quality and competitive price. It is up to the company representative to sell his product X to a customer who is loyal to a brand Y. The whole concept of multi brand exhibit will increase the public influx to a huge extent.The core focus of ITEXPO-09 will be on Notebooks and desktops apart from awareness about WiFi technology as the entire event will be in a WiFi Network. The event will also have stalls for display of notebook accessories, Software and computer components. There will be a stall for customers seeking finance options and computer furniture.
The event will have a LCD Projection at the centre of the Hall which will run the entire participant companies profiles in a cyclic manner during the duration of the event. The customers will be educated as to what are the latest technologies.
All in all, ITEXPO-09 aims to bridge the gap between the customer and the companies and create a win-win situation for both.
If someone is interested in exhibiting their products they could contact: Mr Sandeep Tekriwal, Starnet Computers, Belgaum, and Mobile: 9986506184
E-mail: rtnsandeep@gmail.com
So remember the dates 25TH, 26TH, 27TH JAN 2009 @ Millennium Gardens, Shukurwar Peth, Tilakwadi, Belgaum.

After, the recent by polls held for the Hukkeri assembly constituency, the bus carrying all the electronic voting machines for counting to Belgaum met with an accident in Suttagati ghat on the NH 4 on early hours of the Sunday, killing the driver on the spot.

Sources told the blog that the driver was not a professional driver.

Reliving those old moments price less

4:53 PM Posted by ukmad


The St.Pauls batch of 1993 today concluded their reunion meet at the school in camp.
The batch is very active on the internet and with help of internet this even was planned and executed to the best, that what ex-Paulite Dr.Handgandi told this blog.
This year’s event was mainly concentrated on cherishing those old pranks played on teachers and fellow friends. The event began by paying tributes to those teachers and fellow batch mates who are not with them today. Then the school anthem was sung and event proceeded.
A professional database was also made at this time which will be used later to share job openings and references within the group.
In the pciture: Ex-paulites enjoying playing back.
The batch mates were filled with joy to see each other; a few saw each other after 15 years, a few after 5 years. In fact a few like Mr.Faiz and Vishal Raut who had left the school in 8th std came for the event to see their old day buddies.
Blast from the past; a creation of Mr.Devikant which was a collection of old photos from school was very applauded by the batch mates. The chronicles of 1993, a collection of all the pranks and tricks played with teachers was the best event of the day and many new confessions came up which everyone was surprised to hear.
To narrate just one of them; Mr. Vinay Kothari said that he had lifted a cake given to their calls teacher and then the whole class equally ate the cake and at the last before the teacher left the class, one student told that, “Sir we ate the cake” and the teacher replied” If you all shared it then it’s a good thing”. The best thing is the person who lifted the cake from the teachers table never ate anything as it contained eggs.
All old memories and dances on the songs of that era like, Muqabla of Prabhuudeva, Jumma Chumma etc were played and all enjoyed it. A short film of last reunion held in 2003 was also showcased in a packaged format to relive those moments also.
Mr.Chingale told this blog a mega event is in the planning for 2013 where it will be a 2 day event and will include all teachers and complete families of the students.
All the batch mates supported the organizers and they also plan to give back to the school and the society from the amount collected at the reunion as it was done in 2003, by donating the remaining amount to Karunalaya, an old age home.
People bond together without any prejudice just as a community to work betterment of the society, a noble cause indeed.
All the best for next reunion.
Disclaimer: I am part of the batch.

Belgaum industries in bad shape: tough times ahead

4:21 PM Posted by ukmad

The nightmare of global economic downturn has knocked at the doors of industries in Belgaum. Recession has taken away lively hood of many people and even a few have closed down their establishments.
Around 1500 small and large industries have shut shop and many working in there have fled Belgaum. The future looks gloomy for the industrial scenario in Belgaum.
The government must reduce the interest rates loans. And since repayment of loans has become extremely difficult, it should even waive-off the dues of the industrialists.
Mainly the machine shops in Belgaum supply to automobile industries and the auto industry is also not doing well. Even after the excise cut for automobiles only footfalls into showrooms have increased, I heard on a news channel. So until the auto industry kicks of hard Belgaum will keep facing tough times ahead.

“We will create an island of excellence through focus on customer, employee-empowerment and continuous improvement.”- Mission Statement

  Polyhydron will nurture an ethically managed organization. We will not exploit our

Customers, suppliers, government, society and nature” - Vision Statement

 Those 4 lines of hefty looking words are a brain child of Mr.Suresh 

Hundre, CMD

 

Polyhydron Pvt.Ltd. Belgaum. He does not run a business he runs Business Ashram, that

not me who says that, numerous case studies by prominent management Gurus mention the same thing.

 

Mr.Suresh Hundre a down to earth man aimed differently and achieved it. He dreamt of doing business ethically and yet grows the business 30% year after year, be debt free and cash rich.

 

Polyhydron is in the manufacturing of Industrial Hydraulic Valves, very back from 1981-82. Mobile Hydraulic Valves (Import Substitution) production added in the year 2001-02.

 When he took over the executive responsibility of the company in the year 1986,  anaging he show was easier said than done. With cash flow problems due to pending payments and very high inventory leading to pressure working capital management. Mr.Hundre analyzed the situation to find out that there was much non-compliance with regulatory requirements.

 He is influenced deeply by Swami Vivekanand, the scriptures and spirituality, the Gita & Ricardo Semler’s Maverick. He took the best from all and runs his organization as ‘business ashrama’ as he calls it, where “Honesty is not the best policy, it is the only policy!

 We are honest. We are transparent & we do not pay BRIBE.”

 The Ashrama itself is a place to see and believe. The first plant was constructed in hexagonal shaped structure, surrounding a central octagonal place. This layout provides more floor space, better lighting and ventilation. In Business Ashrama eight groups of three hexagonal structures are constructed. Each group is a ‘focused factory’ for specialized products dedicated to one customer.

 The word Ashrama is aptly used as the place gives a feeling of being close to the nature where ducks, fishes and turtles are also a part of life and also a Dhyan  Mandir .

 Stars of Belgaum, Hundre

Mr.Hundre does not pay any bribes anywhere. Customers were not given any credit, and the business was to be done only on payment, He scrapped the material store and established a transparent supplier management system. No price bargain with the customer and started following a transparent discount policy, known to all.

 He does not like pushing people to do duties, on the contrary he believes in creating an environment where people work without compromising ethics and morality. Which company will share its balance sheet with employees, Hundre’s company does it.

 Productivity, profit, growth such data are shared on a NOTICE board and anyone can question a financial transaction of the company.  He believes that any business big or small should be built on own financial strength then only one can achieve sustained growth.

 

Trust is the core in the company. Security guard is there only during night hours when no one is in the factory, as he does not question the honesty of his employees.

 Only one level of management exists between the CMD and workers and those are the co-oridinators. No supervision what so ever. The workers can stop the production at anytime if they notice some flaw in the product or the raw material. 

The Company maintains almost a paperless office and well networked MIS system. As there is no store for raw materials, the materials are brought Just in time directly to the workstation. Even the quantity brought in is not formally counted as Polyhydron has developed a respect with its suppliers. If something goes wrong only, the workers directly contact the supplier directly as they know the best.


Mr Hundre does not welcome any consultant in his office who may like to offer advice on how to reduce the tax burden! The company plans how they can pay more tax to the Government in the current year as compared to previous year!

 Mr. Hundre’s role models are Mahatma Gandhi, Kiran Bedi, Ratan Tata and Narayan Murthy. 

When he deiced to computerize the whole company all original hardware and software were brought for a high price almost double that of pirated, the employees decided that only half of the computers be bought and employees were ready on rotation basis.

 He does participate in social activities but it will be after 6 p.m. If he has to go somewhere his casual leave application will be on the notice board. In fact, all the employees have to do the same.

 A few more questions I asked to Mr.Suresh Hundre.  

Ø      Your view on Belgaum, its development over years and what you think is in store for it in the future.

 It is a Slow growing Industrial Place , mostly owned by Local People with Small Vision(There are very few exceptions)

 

Ø      Now that your son also handles some aspects of your business, do you think he will also carry your legacy forward?

Yes, Certainly.

 

Ø      How has been the support of your parents and family at home?

I had no support from my Parents for starting the Business, but my wife supports me 100% (She shares max. returns From the company -Dividend)

 

Ø      You have given so many lectures at so many places, any experience worth sharing here?

Once in GIT after my Lecture a North indian Student met me outside the hall and said “All what you talked inside the Hall is Bullshit- what is you comment” I replied “I Pity You”

 

Ø      You have made your factory a temple of ethics where, even I made my first ever industrial visit way back in 1996 we were impressed and till date people have the same feeling. How do you keep the legacy?

 Perspective, Patience & Persistence

 

Ø      You are very active in the social field, especially in social justice forum and in the fight to save Vaccine depot. What is your thought on the young generation and their contribution to back to the society?

Generally, Young Generation does not feel obliged to social commitments/responsibility. The young generation is more attracted to worldly pleasures at least efforts and no sacrifice.

 

Ø      Has you thought of retiring yourself form the day to day activities of the company?

Yes, definitely. I will play role of a mentor.

 

Ø      You believe in being simple and living simple. Has that raised some conflicts amongst your family members?

 My wife also comes from same middle class,  . My son also belives in simple living.

 

 

Ø      Your thoughts for upcoming entrepreneurs in Belgaum?

Have a Big Vision and Go Mad After it. Keep your personal agenda aside until you establish.

 

Ø      You believe in debt less company operation, but how do we achieve it, if we area first time entrepreneurs?

 Nothing  wrong in borrowing loans. The earlier you are out of it the better.

 

Ø      What relaxes you after a day’s work?

Social Work 

 

Ø      You have some hobbies, which keep you engrossed elsewhere?

Reading Spiritual Books

 

Ø      What do you think of this blog and its contribution to Belgaum?

 Excellent Keep it up.

 

After reading all this, I am a fan of Mr.Suresh Hundre. Many have their idols or role models like Sharukh Khan, Amir Khan, a few like Gandhi and Nehru, but to be successful in life the correct way is to follow Mr.Suresh Hundre. Its difficult but is the right path.
