My wife has secured a seat in the Manipal College of Dental Sciences – Mangalore. So every week end I visit this coastal city in Karnataka that lies close to the borders of Kerala. The view from the balcony of her rented flat is amazing and, her roomy studies in the AJ Institute of Dental Sciences, which can be clearly seen from the residence. Mangalore is a hub of many medical , dental and engineering colleges and has a large student population. It also houses many Industries and is I believe one of the most polluted smaller towns in India.
