Carpet-wallahs encroach footpaths

October 4, 2019

Sir, The footpaths in most places of our city have been encroached by all kinds of people who sell all types of wares, as the City Corporation and Police do not enforce the rules strictly.

This Road needs attention

October 2, 2019

Sir, There is a big crater-like pothole on Akkamahadevi Road in front of Hotel Red Lotus Heritage, which is posing a great danger to pedestrians. Since it is located right in the centre of the road and what with vehicles zooming in all directions at that spot, it is proving to be a big risk…

“Public Eye” and Traffic Police

October 1, 2019

Sir, Of late we do not find Home Guards at junctions but can see the Traffic Police instead.  These cops will be either sitting beneath the traffic umbrellas  or on their bikes, where there are no traffic umbrellas.

But nowhere in the report there is anything mentioned about harvesting the rain water. Chamundi Hill being a hilly forest region, gets ample rainfall which…

Rangayana Directors and Political Ideology

September 28, 2019

Sir, It is interesting to note that the recent Government Order relieving the Directors of Rangayanas has generated a debate. I have attended a few programmes in Rangayana and it was quite obvious that the administrators were leaning towards a particular political ideology. A few months back there were a series of plays in the…

Let’s keep Mysuru clean!

September 27, 2019

Sir, It is very important that we realise the importance of keeping our city clean, especially with “Nada Habba” Dasara round the corner.
