    Except hospitals , of which there are over 100 private hospitals in Mysuru, small , medium and large, ready to fleece the poor patients, the rst of the above are not essential services in a curfew situation. People should have bought fruits, vegetables, milk and take away hotel parcels are unnecessary, if people are prepared for just 1 night curfew.
    Strange situation, typical India!!
