[Migrants to Mysore] The recent incident of gang rape and armed robbery has triggered a new topic of conversation in Mysuru, a conversation that was for the most part limited to Bengaluru — the “outsider” problem.

Policing Limitations

August 28, 2021

This week has been a tumultuous one for a docile city like ours. Within a week we witnessed two terrible crimes — an armed robbery which left an innocent shopper dead and the gang rape of a young woman at the foot of Chamundi Hill.  Most Mysureans were asking, “How could this happen in our…

Want Olympic Gold ? Then Fund sports

August 7, 2021

Interest in sports, other than cricket, is a seasonal affair in our country. Now that the Olympic Games are here, there is patriotism-driven interest rather than love for a sport. But that’s ok, for we as a nation are slowly but surely heading towards being a sporty one. In the last few years, a certain…

Ropeway needed ?

July 24, 2021

A few days ago Minister for Tourism, Environment and Ecology C.P. Yogeeshwar directed the Department officials to draw a plan of action for the Chamundi Hill ropeway project.  And with that the scarring of Chamundi Hill begins, again.

Doctors’‌ ‌Day‌ ‌Musings‌ ‌

July 3, 2021

Two days ago on July 1, we observed the National Doctors’ Day. The Prime Minister wished the doctors and thanked them. But more than thanks the doctors need something else — protection.  Indeed, the Government has done the needful by introducing and passing “The Epidemic Diseases (Amendment) Bill, 2020,” which makes acts of violence on…

Paris to Perish!

June 19, 2021

Sadly, the recent Mysuru DC’s episode quite clearly indicates that Mysuru is well on its way to becoming a milder, yet repulsive version of Bengaluru rather than a paler, yet beautiful version of Paris as we had hoped.  Just look at Bengaluru, a city that was once called  ‘The land of a 1000 lakes’  and…
