Riding on the wrong way!

August 9, 2020

Sir, It is quite interesting to see that people are forgetting the basic road safety rules and finding new ways to reach their destinations. Riding or driving in the wrong way on the wrong side against the flow of the traffic became quite common in the city and many other parts of the country. Besides…

Remembering Dr. K.B. Subbaiah

August 8, 2020

Sir, I am writing this letter after reading KBG’s Abracadabra “Nostalgically Speaking — 1: Dr. K.B. Subbaiah” about his brother in Star of Mysore dated July 19. I was working as a Laboratory Technician with Dr. Subbaiah. It is really nice and touching that I still remember the late doctor who was a kind gentleman….

Potential dangers of Parthenium

August 7, 2020

Sir, If you have a quick glance around your neighbourhood, chances are you will spot the dainty, white-flowered ‘congress grass’ creeping among the city’s lush green vegetation. Congress grass is a rather innocent name for the hazardous and highly allergic Parthenium hysterophorus plant. What makes the Parthenium plant a real threat is its toxicity when…

Pedestrian-friendly footpath needed on Kalidasa Road

August 5, 2020

Sir, Kalidasa road has become one of the busiest roads in Mysuru, having a large number of banks, restaurants, medical facilities and other commercial activities.

Stray dogs need better treatment after sterilisation

August 3, 2020

Sir, This is regarding sterilisation of stray dogs in Mysuru. I have seen so many dogs are caught by the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) staff, sterilised in People For Animals (PFA) and left in streets without proper procedures and post-operative care. Many of them have faced infections and were dead. Some dogs that were recently…

Let civic sense prevail in COVID times

August 2, 2020

Sir, It pains me reading about extreme callous attitude of our brethren who ruthlessly dump garbage in public and private lands too, unmindful of the consequential hazard on the environment in the already rotten situation owing to the pandemic. It shows lack of basic civic sense on their part. A few pictures that recently appeared…

Make Taluk Office online-friendly

July 31, 2020

Sir, We all know that computerisation was started in Government administration at least a decade ago or even before. Things like registration of documents, land holdings information (RTC), Court proceedings, RTO Office (though not fully), KSRTC bookings etc., have been computerised to some extent. But one Department of the Government, that is, Taluk Office (Mini…
