More on vehicles without number plates!

Sir, The concern raised by Prof. B.S. Shankara on new two-wheelers moving without number plates in city is highly appreciated (SOM dated Aug. 16). Here, I would like to inform that it is not just new two-wheelers or cars that run sans registration number plates but even many old vehicles are also being used on…

‘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…

Defunct signal lights at Kumbarakoppal Gate

Sir, Signal lights were installed at Kumbarakoppal Gate, KRS Road, Mysuru, two years ago. But nowadays suddenly they are defunct for reasons known to the authorities concerned only. This Gate is a very busy junction, particularly during peak hours. Is it not the duty of the authorities concerned to maintain  functioning of the traffic signals…

Missing part of a message!

Sir, It was a noble gesture of my friend KBG to dedicate his Abracadabra written in the midnight (we got our hard-earned Independence too in the midnight) to appear in Star of Mysore dated Aug. 14, 2017, for nothing much I did to his column. As a prolific and seasoned writer with a rich journalistic…

“Make in India” or “Made in China?”

Sir, International trade between various countries is a must for survival of all the nations and invariably there are trade imbalances. While India is exporting a lot of goods to other countries, it has a net trade deficit of about 47 Billion US Dollars with China! They are using this economic strength to bully us….

Heaven lies under the feet of a mother

Sir, KBG’s Abracadabra titled  ‘MOTHER’ published in Star of Mysore dated Aug. 8 was thought-provoking. I had tears in my eyes when I read that article. Two incidents have been narrated in the article. One is the outcome of materialistic approach towards our life under the influence of Western culture and the other incident of…

MOTHERS must adapt to today’s changing lifestyles

Sir, KBG’s Abracadabra on  MOTHER was touching (SOM dated Aug. 8). His description of losing his mother in a way that needn’t have been was almost like a confession. We still haven’t found the answers as to why elders sometimes become stubborn and refuse to co-operate with their well-meaning children in taking care and end…

This median does not serve any purpose

Sir, A majority of city roads have been divided by providing medians. These medians, instead of helping in smooth flow of traffic, have become a nuisance. Take the case of Sahukar Chennaiah Road leading towards Maruthi Temple in Kuvempunagar. This wide road was good enough to take care of the density of traffic throughout the…

Kuvempunagar bus stand building lying idle!

Sir, Kuvempunagar bus stand complex (a 3-storey building) built under Centre’s JNNURM scheme was inaugurated on 9.4.2011. Since then, the huge complex is lying idle except transit bus stop-over. The property could earn lot of revenue by giving it on rent to banks, offices and shops. Also, the building maintenance will cost a lot to…
