Henja Naik's statue to be installed on Karwar beach

Quote:
This was decided at a meeting to elicit public views

A public meeting was held by the district administration on Wednesday to elicit views on installation of a statue of freedom fighter Henja Naik.

Anand Asnotikar, Fisheries, Science and Technology Minister, B.N. Krishnaiah, Deputy Commissioner, Balakrishna, Superintendent of Police, and other senior officials participated in the meting.

There was a dispute over the place where the statue was to be installed. Mr. Asnotikar was interested in installing it on the Karwar beach opposite the Warship Museum. But some organisations demanded that the statue be installed on Karwar-Kodibag road near the grave of Hanja Naik. This led to a heated argument. Later, it was decided to install the statue on the Karwar beach.

Yes the beach is really good. I used to hang out a lot during my three years stay before I moved to Namma Mumbai.

There is a restaurant called Amrut which is very good just north of Karwar a mile from Karwar city.

Karwar emerges as a good alternative for tourists

Quote:
Karwar beach has attracted a number of tourists who originally planned to spend the New Year's Eve in Goa. Many tourists who could not get accommodation in Goa have arrived in Karwar and the hotels and resorts are fully booked till January 5.

Most of the resorts and the lodges in Goa were reserved about three months in advance. Many tourists from Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu who were unaware of this were coming to Goa only to find that no rooms were available there.

Second, the police in Goa discourage heavy inflow of travellers on the eve of New Year because it causes chaos on the road and becomes a security hazard. Once the hotels and resorts in Goa are booked, the police block vehicles carrying new tourists at the border till January first week.

The threat of terrorist attack during the New Year Eve has discouraged many tourists this year.

This has become a dampener for those who wanted to spend the holiday in Goa. Most of those visiting Karwar instead of Goa are mainly from Bangalore and Mysore. Many foreign tourists are arriving at Murudeshwar, Gokarna, and Karwar to celebrate the New Year's Eve. The hotel owners, tourist guides, and the taxi owners are only too happy by this sudden turn of events.

A tourist from Bangalore lamented that the Department of Tourism should take the opportunity to attract more tourists. Karwar has beautiful scenery and it should be showcased to attract tourists, he said.

A group of college students from Mysore said they came to celebrate the New Year's Eve in Goa. The price of a simple room was Rs. 3,000 to Rs. 5,000 in Goa.

Kashi, a software engineer from Bangalore, said he had come to visit Goa but accommodation was not available there. So he decided to spend time in Karwar and stay in a resort. He said he enjoyed the beauty of the Karwar beach because unlike Goa beaches it was lengthy.

The islands in the Kali river and the scenery at the estuary of the Kali were excellent he said. He planned to stay in Karwar till January 2.

True during 92-95 time period Karwar was not popular and even among Karnataka people it was not well known. Looks like now it is becoming more popular.
