‘Mysore Memories’ on Dr. DLN

Sir, I am grateful to Dr. S.N. Bhagirath for presenting a comprehensive article about our great Kannada professor Dr. D.L. Narasimhachar (DLN) in SOM dated Mar.5 under the column “Mysore Memories.” When I was a student in Yuvaraja’s College during 1956 – 58, I had many opportunities to visit Maharaja’s College and attend DLN’s lectures…

Punish the eco-terrorists

Sir, If one goes by the news reports of the last few days, thousands of acres of pristine forests have been destroyed due to raging fire at Bandipur and Gopalaswamy Betta. Adding to this are the displacement of thousands of animals along with fully grown trees being turned to ashes. Many of these trees could…

Increasing burden of house rents

Sir, There was a time in the past when house rents in Mysuru were affordable. The scenario has changed unimaginably now and it would cost anywhere between Rs. 15,000 and Rs. 20,000 to rent out a decent accommodation — what with Mysuru rates competing vigorously with Bengaluru.  Landlords would feel bad, squirm and very apologetically…

Wise to rebuild Devaraja Market and Lansdowne Building

Sir, I read the relevant article titled “Reconstruct Devaraja Market & Lansdowne Building Keeping the ‘Heritage’ Facade” by Prof. N. Narayana Sastry (SOM dated Feb.26). Very well said. The slogan raised by the vested interest can be easily analysed. First of all, are they heritage structures like Gol Gumbaz or structures at Hampi? Commercial persons…

Chamundi Vihar Stadium neglected: Official apathy

Sir, Chamundi Vihar Stadium in Nazarbad is a very good stadium for athletes and sportspersons. However, the tragedy is that because of the negligence of the officials concerned, it has turned into a den of anti-social elements. In many places the compound and fence around the stadium is broken and anyone can walk inside it…

Make NCC mandatory

Sir, This is with reference to Vikram Muthanna’s article titled ‘Give NCC a Try’ in Star of Mysore dated Feb.23. It is a good call to our young generation to build up patriotism and discipline through NCC. Now-a-days expressing patriotism has become a fashion and restricted to selected days, wherein one can see insincere display…

Eviction of Forest Families

Sir, The news item in SOM dated Feb. 22 regarding eviction of 1.17 Million forest families is heartening to read as these families need to be rehabilitated with minimum facilities in a new place which is a more challenging task. Most of these families might have developed certain bonding and evolved socio-cultural living in tune…
