In reality, Mangalore stands nowhere in Quality of Life, when compared with the cities of First World countries.

In order to improve, there have been questions (criticisms) that have been posted by some people from Mangalore, who want their city to improve:

Majority of these questions can be found in the link pasted below:

Please go through the relevant questions. I request the Mangalore city dwellers and the Administration to take the criticisms from all the relevant questions as a challenge, and in the right spirit.

It is the people's mindset that needs to change.

Calling Mangalore a safe city is ridiculous.

Talking about just 1 aspect - "Corruption"

There is a Goon named S. Ganesh Rao from Karavali College who wants to become a future MLA.

1. This person had slapped students for no reason.
2. Had abused faculty members and had threatened to physically assault them
3. This Karavali College Goon S. Ganesh Rao had Bribed the AICTE officials to stop the closure of his education institute.
4. All employees had a bond and were sent for Marketing outside the college without any reimbursements.
5. Students had to deal with the pathetic infrastructure of this education institute.
6. The student lab manuals were printed in the photocopies of the employees' markscards
7. This goon S. Ganesh Rao has Bribed the local media such as Daijiworld and Udayavani.

The local Mangalore people are stupid to call this person (S.Ganesh Rao) a clean and humble person.

Mangalore is safe for Hooligans and Right Wing fanatics only.
Mangalore is a highly corrupt city, where bribing officials and media will turn a Goon into a Righteous person.

Mangalore city and surrounding are very beautiful. No doubt it envy other major cities. It's tall sky scrappers are now giving new dimensions. Except swetty climate (ofcourse not in the people s hand) everything is good.

Mangalore is a lovely place.
I agree with the ratings for Quality of Life.

Some of the local news channels have focused on the negative side of the city, but I always felt very safe to stay in Mangalore. I am living in this city since 1985.

Overall, Mangalore is a wonderful place to stay.

Mangaluru is a beautiful place with strong spiritual background/
history. Less pollution, traffic is ok except during peak hours. But that too u dont hav t wait for more than 5 mins. Traffic wil get going.
Climate is good. Rainy season is beautiful nd humidity is good. It keeps the skin clean
#Diwakar on Mar 26, 2017 :
Another major issue here is communal clashes. You don't know when the fight erupts. If you control the moral police, Mangaluru will be heaven.
#Anonymous on Mar 05, 2017 :
The traffic is increasing everyday. Though the city's growth is very much under control.
Population as per 2011 census was around 600,000.
Climate is not good, due to high humidity and heavy rains during the monsoon.
Apart from these things, the city is fairly OK in my opinion.

Mangalore is heaven, except for the climate. It is a less polluted, less populated, calm and a developed city.
