Kottara Flyover Gets a Final Touch: Traditions of Tulunad Given More Importance

October 3: Three years after taking the first steps to beautify the Kottara Chowki area, Ramakrishna Mission on Wednesday presented Mangaloreans with an area that got a completely changed look on the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

The massive ugly pillars supporting the flyover at Kottara Chowki on NH 66 were beautified. he pillars of the flyovers were cleaned and painted with beautiful art works. About 22 huge art works have come up under the guidance of Vikram Shetty of Aditattwa Arts.  The art works included Yakshagana, Nema-Kola, Kambala and paddy transplantation which reflect the local culture and spread messages on social awareness regarding cleanliness. The area below the flyover which is about 35,000 square feet, was levelled and covered with interlock tiles. Besides creating a space for systematic parking of vehicles, 100 seats were installed to help pedestrians sit and relax. Decorative flower pots have also been placed at empty spaces.
MRPL, main sponsor of the Abhiyan for five years now, also paid ₹ 35 lakh for the renovation. MRPL Group General Manager B.H.V. Prasad inaugurated the renovated Kottara Chowki area in the presence of Belur Ramakrishna Mutt and Mission’s vice-president Swami Gauthamanandaji, Mangalore Ramakrishna Mutt president Swami Jitakamanandaji, Swatch Mangaloreconvener Swami Ekagamyanandaji and others.
