But plenty of so called "literate" people from Mangalore, Kerala work as drivers, floor cleaners, babysitters and waiters for the wealthy Sheikhs in Dubai, UAE, Qatar and the rest of GCC countries. There is one famous billionaire from this "Indian west coast" region who came up in life by being a drug peddler for the Sheikhs in Dubai. And not to mention that both Kerala and Mangalore are notorious for unemployment. People have to slog and struggle a lot in office, colleges even for a Rs. 16000 paying job, and still taxes will be deducted from their salary to be paid to that useless Indian Government. The employees get nothing in return from the Indian government.
All your so called "purchasing power" in Mangalore, Kerala is because of the expatriates and diaspora that work in the Gulf countries and also in the Indian megacities. Your economy is nonsense.
Coming to infrastructure,
1. There is no provision to pay the utilities water bill online. Cities of Karnataka such as Mysuru, Hubli, Shivamogga, Vijayapura have their city corporations as default entries in many major banking sites to pay online bills. Mangaluru is not even there.
2. The city bus facilities of Mangalore are by far the worst in India. The private bus operator here does not even have a website, no helpline number, absolutely horrible bus operators. No tracking of buses via mobile app, no GPS stop announcements, no doors in buses. Most city buses dissipate plenty of black smoke and the private bus drivers are renowned for rash driving and overspeeding. The vast majority of private busses are dented. The private bus lobby ensures that any new bus services from the government will never get implemented in Mangalore.
3. The profitable banks of the Mangalore-Udupi belt first had their headquarters moved without consensus to some other place. Now these profitable banks have been dissolved without people's consensus with the banks that were facing loss and the local banks are now non-existent. The Government has backstabbed the people and have sunk the paltry meagre existing local economy. Karnataka deliberately doesn't develop Mangalore because it is a Tulu speaking area. This despite the fact that Mangalore is the only place in Karnataka to have both International Airport and a Major Seaport.
4. Any connectivity to the hinterlands of Karnataka is always met with objections by fake people disguised as environmentalists. These environmentalists never clean up any polluted place in the country and they themselves are a waste. These so called 'environmentalists' only task is to oppose infrastructure and connectivity.
5. The airport is still a dangerous tabletop airport and the government is apathetic to the concerns and not bothered about the safety of passengers. This airport is extremely dangerous and life-threatening for passengers especially during the monsoon.
Most people in Mangalore are delighted to move out of this place and settle elsewhere for jobs. People in Mangalore are not assertive and don't wish for any multinational companies or good infrastructure in their city.
Cost of living is very high but economy and purchasing power are miserable at Mangalore.
If you think Goa is liberal, then you'll have to read about the 'Goa inquisition'. The Goa inquisition is a secular and liberal event in Indian history. Extortion, kidnappings, drug peddling, prostitution happening in Goa is truly liberal for Indians. The 'Moplah riots' of Kerala and the genocidal slaughter of Hindus in 'God's own country' is another secular and liberal event cherished in India.
I am all ears to listen to the garbage of the 1.5 billion hypocrite Indians. I wish and pray for their complete mental recovery.
But Mr. Anonymous (2017 commenter), let me tell you one thing. If you cannot survive in Mangalore, you cannot survive anywhere else in India.
And don't agree with that Anonymous who had posted earlier in 2017. He may be right about the prices, but it looks like he has come from some other galaxy!
Some of that Anonymous user's comments are absolute nonsense.
