Hey @Sanjay Kini
The residents of Mysore have aright to peace and quiet ayt least some months in a year, without being trampled on by crowds od tourists.
You are promoting this tourism , perhaps it adds Rupees to your pockets.
As for the Youga City, where were you all those years when Pattabhi Jois, in his Yoga outfit called ‘Ashttanga yoga’ systematically sexually abused Western women, and after his death when this information came out, his successors had to apologise for what had happened during those Yoga classes.

There is plenty of Yoga class abuse by him and others too.
Best for you to shut up promoting yet more tourism, from which you obviously benefit. But you need to realise that the residents of Mysore need peace and quiet for some time in a year too.
What is your occupation? I suspect, it is in tourism?
You seem to think that Mysore is there for the all the national and international tourists to arrive in large numbers, and tough luck for Mysoreans if they find these tourist crowds hard to take, with their littering and excesses.
