Stranded in Yemen: Rajesh Gowda return home to tell the story
Mangaluru: The parents of Rajesh Gowda from Puttur were spending days in agony as their son was stranded in war effected Yemen since many days. All their prayers and offerings to various Gods turned fruitful when their son came home safely on Saturday April 4.

Rajesh was among 664 Indians who were rescued from Yemen and brought to Kochi and Mumbai by special Air India flights on the night of Friday April 3. After landing at Kochi, he came by train to Mangaluru and then proceeded to his hometown Puttur.

An employee of MAM International Corporation in Sana’a for the past three years had recently returned to his job after spending a month's vacation at his hometown.

Sharing his experience in war torn Yemen Rajesh said he will never go to Yemen again. He said,"On the day I reached Yemen, there were two bomb blasts in which 150 died and 175 were injured. Till March 29, the war was happening only at nights, but from the next day, it happened during daytime too.

"There was a bomb blast just 500 metres from the place where I stayed. It was scary and it was impossible to step out after March 25. I was worried that I would not make it back to India. I did not speak to the media as I did not want my family to be worried," he said, adding that due to sandstorm in the Gulf, the situation had calmed down a bit, which worked in their favour.

"The airport runway at Sana'a was damaged. So we could not come back to India sooner. After being rescued, we were taken to Djibouti and from there to Kochi. The railway staff at Kochi helped me and even gave me free ticket to Mangaluru," Rajesh said.

He also said that the locals in Yemen treated him well and ensured that there was no shortage of food. Imthiyaz from Bengaluru accompanied him on the flight to Kochi, he said.

Rajesh also said that Prema, a nurse from Udupi, is still stranded in Yemen.

Rajesh's father Chennappa Gowda who was there at the railway station to receive his son, said, "I am very happy and relieved to see my son. We have not planned any celebration but we will definitely express our gratitude to god."

Union minister Sadananda Gowda and deputy commissioner A B Ibrahim had called me and gave me words of support said Rajesh. He also thanked Union government, his family and friends for their support.

Srirama Sene condemns Anti Lord Rama statement by Bhagavan
Mangaluru: The assault on Hindu religion is on the high in recent days. People like K.S Bhagavan are giving statements which hurt religious feelings of Hindus. Who gave him the right to judge our Gods? asked  Shri Siddalinga Swamiji, State executive president of Srirama Sene.

He was speaking in a pressmeet held in the city on Saturday April 4. He urged the authority to take strict action on the people who give such statements and also warned that or else Srirama Sene will take this task.

The government is releasing terrorists but a cancer effected Sadhvi Prajna Singh is suffering in the jail. No government has taken initiative to release her, he said.

Srirama Sene is conducting a crore letter campaign in the country condemning this and will appeal to the Prime minister and the Chief Minister of Maharashtra he added.

State Secretary Pavin Valke, divisional president Anand Shetty Adyar, district president Jeevan Neermarga and many  others were present.
