Link to this blog included in HDMC website - Thank You

Dear Friends,

In a sincere effort to make this blog available to a wider audience, I thought of having links to this blog included on popular websites related to the twin-cities of Hubli - Dharwad. As a first step in this direction, I made a humble request to the Respected Commissioner of Hubli Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC), Mr. Manivannan Ponniah, to include a link to this blog on the website of HDMC. The Respected Commissioner has visited the blog and agreed to provide the same.

A link to the blog is now available on the pages City Blogs and
City Websites on the website of HDMC.

This note is a "Thank You" to him for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit the blog and doing the needful.

Thanks again.

Vishal Kumar N Jain.

Dear Mr. Jain,

I am glad to see another blog on twin cities! I am aware that this twin city has enormous potential to become very big city in the coming years. Most of the talent from HD are staying outside. There is a slow momentum towards bringing them back. Once the tipping point is reached, then there is no stopping for HD!

Your blog has come out well. I am copying this mail to our IT department to so that they give the link. I read the article you wrote in Deccan Herald also, and thanks for your nice words.

Thanks and regards,


Manivannan, P
Commissioner, Hubli-Dharwad Municipal Corporation,

Dear Mr. Manivannan,

At the outset, as I citizen of Hubli-Dharwad, I would like to thank you for the development that you brought about in the twin cities during your tenure. Although I am based in Bangalore, but make it a point to visit Hubli at least once a month. I have kept a close watch on each development activity in the city during the past 3 years or so. I regularly visit the HDMC website ( to stay in touch with the latest happenings.

I have started a blog which shall act as a reference for people who need any information about Hubli-Dharwad. The ultimate aim of the blog is to become a complete encyclopedia on information related to the twin cities of Hubli and Dharwad. To start with I have posted blogs on information related to reaching Hubli-Dharwad by air, rail and road and where to stay in the two cities.

Please visit the same at

The blog has been rightly titled "HUBLI DHARWAD AHEAD" as I believe that the cities are moving ahead in the right direction.

I have a request to make. Can you please include a link to this blog in the page titled "City Blogs" on the website

Thanking you in anticipation.

Vishal Kumar N Jain.
