Aarambha Kathe - How it Started

Most of these friends were from B.V. B college of Engg & Tech, Hubli who passed out in the years between 1992 to 1996. All of them went to different cities in India and began their professional career. But by the year 2007, some of the friends from BVB in Bangalore who were already settled in their careers, began observing that suddenly all their lives are becoming little monotonous and they are all getting lost in the corporate rat race. They all debated a lot on this and agreed that they are losing out on Family touch and they need to do something for their families to meet regularly. These friends discussed and meticulously planned an annual family get together for the first time in 2007. They brought in the concept of all the BVB families meeting on 2 ndSunday of every year! This annual family get together was called BVB Family Get Together alias BVB G2G! This idea of meeting for one full day every year suddenly hit a right chord with everyone involved and people just loved it...! Year on year the number of friends increased and BVB Get together became one of the prominent events happening at Bangalore. People started looking forward from the month of November itself for 2nd Sunday of the year that comes in January. The annual event regularly attracted approximately 80 to 100 families every year. It was a great social gathering including EVERYONE from North Karnataka with all Men, Women, Toddlers, Kids, teens and even Senior Citizens. The event happens every year in any resort away from Bangalore. All kinds of popular North Karnataka games, fun events, Arts, and Cultural shows are conducted for one full day. People from North Karnataka meet and greet each other, share the wonderful moments with each other and celebrate the wonderful bonding being “Namma Mandi”...!

Namma Uddeshagalu - What are our Objectives?

Business Events: In the year 2016, UKSL team thought of doing something different. They conceived an idea of bringing some of their friends who are Entrepreneurs from North Karnataka on one stage, help them talk to each other on what business they are into, establish new connections and thus help their businesses grow in North Karnataka. The initial thought was to gather about 15-20 friends, meet for dinner and have a discussion. But as the team sat together and detailed out each item, the list went on growing. A dedicated organizing team was formed. Two business talks were included, Morning Break Fast, Tea Break and Lunch were included and at the end it turned to be one full length business program of 6 hours! The net result was, a corporate style, business meet and greet event “UK Entrepreneurs Meet - 2016” which was hosted at Hotel Paraag, Bengaluru on 18th Sep 2016! Rest all is a history now...! UKEM is the most popular event among North Karnataka friends and is organized every year in August/September. Social Events: After this, another social event “Visit to Blind School Children” was conceptualized. The Uttara Karnataka Pretty Women group conceptualized and organized a successful visit to RAMANA MAHIRSHI ACADEMY for BLIND, Bangalore on 6th Nov 2016. The team spent half day with all the children of the school, conducted some games and even played Cricket with them! The team sponsored lunch for one day, contributed donations to the school for the welfare of all these GODS gifted children’’. We observed that these children were much more confident and assertive that we could think of. It was very heartening, enlightening day for all of us...! Support for Education: Apart from this, UKSL team members are regularly contributing to the poor and needy students to support their education. So far UKSL members have tied up with Prerana Trust, Hubli and supporting the poor children at Hubli. Very recently the team has contributed funds to support two meritorious poor students and helped them to continue their studies in Engineering. Other than these, the UKSL group members are regularly visiting different colleges and conducting session on specialized subjects. This year we have completed six such sessions. And then came final calling...! After so many achievements and program through the last 11 years, the final calling came! All the UKSL members who were associated with the group so far, though it is now time to give a legal status to this group. On this most auspicious day of first Friday of Shravana Maasa, 28th July 2017, the most awaited moment arrived! A dream cherished for last 12 years came true! A thought envisioned 12 years ago by our founder members and friends Parag Mulgund, Raju Hiregoudar and Gangadhar Wali became a reality today!!! Thanks to these friends for such a noble thought conceived that day! The new entity called UTTARA KARNATAKA SNEHALOKA (UKSL) TRUST, Bangalore officially got registered on 28th July 2017.
