Jeopardy of high beam headlights in city limits!

Sir, Headlights, why do we use them? To increase our visibility to other drivers and avoid hazards, it’s important to switch headlights according to the weather and the time of day while being mindful of other drivers. High beam headlights give bright and long-range illumination. Using high beams within the city limits can cause split…

Making a mockery of helmet rule

Sir, Some two-wheeler riders/ pillions in Mysuru do not wear helmets and instead they carry them (to avoid being penalised by police, if caught) either on their lap or hold them in one hand while use the other hand to ride in a risky way.  On the other hand, we find the Police who are…

Whither Hawkers’ Zones?

‘Thuntara Thanda’ in Mysuru’s Freedom Movement !

Sir, S.N. Venkatnag Sober’s feature on “Mysuru’s tryst with Freedom Movement: Recalling Mysuru’s role in India’s Freedom Struggle” (Star of Mysore dated Aug. 13) was interesting. I was happy to find the name of my uncle — my father’s elder brother — G.R. Swamy in the write-up. G.R. Swamy aka G. Ramaswamy was a veteran…
