    MYSORE & HALF CENTURY TODAY. 52 IN A SINGLE DAY. UNBELIEVABLE.
    PLEASE PLEASE WEAR MASK, GLOVES AND USE SANITIZER. DO NOT NEGLECT.
    NEVER SHAKE HANDS WITH ANYBODY.
    KEEP DISTANCE FROM ANYBODY HOWEVER CLOSE OR BIG THEY MAY BE.
    THESE CONDITIONS APPLIES TO EVERY INDIVIDUAL IN KARNATAKA.
    EVERY DEPT IN MANASAGANGOTRI SHOULD HAVE THE SANITIZER IN THE OFFICE.
    SIMILARLY CRAWFORD HALL.
    AND EVERY ONE IN THE UNIVERSITY MUST AND SHOULD WEAR MASK.
    OTHERWISE YOU ARE NEXT. TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE & HEALTHY.

  2. Hey Covid-19!! says:

    Political leaders like the Gowdas and Yeddi the Cheddi CM , religious seers, ministers were all allowed to congregate in groups for one reason or the other,assuming that the Corona Virus has gone away. It has not and is spreading and causing deaths NOW, because the Virus is juston an increasing curve and has yet to reach the peak. Your PM prattled,that other countries were worse,even though he knew unlike India, whichno foreigner wants to visit, countries like US and those in Europe, receive hundreds of thousands of visitors. India and Mysuru has to endure this type of lockdowns and curfews for many more months to come.

    Hello Hemmige
    Only in India and in Mysuru and probably in India, one sees people standing facing the camera, holding a book or certificate or whatever, when some function takes place,and a bunch of others standing behind them. A weird display,which sounds immature,which no one does in any developed country. Stop this stupidity as even with masks,which are not medical masks,Virus can spread, and has done. Safe distancing of 2 meters,and disinfecting all objects,and more than hand sanitisers,hand wash for about 20 seconds with running water helps to prevent the spread.
    Yours is a very crowded country with teeming millions of people even in a middle size city like Mysuru. As the poster above said, even not receiving many foreign visitors unlike Europe and America, the Virus has fast spread to the communities.
    The Virus came to India through Indians who launder money earned through bribes, unaccounted earnings etc..when went to Europe and America to launder that money-each of these people carry thick wads of US Dollars,which is more than what good earning Westerners carry.
    I would cancel all Indian passports,for all,and block people coming to India for 2 years. Such drastic actions are necessary

    MLA Ramdas wears his mask to cover his chin, not mouth or nose, every photograph of his one can see that. JAI HIND.

  5. At first, we were very cautious about the mask, about two-yard distancing, washing hands several times a day for 20 seconds. During lockdown, rules were followed seriously. Now the governments, local bodies and citizens need to show alertness in the same manner. It is up to those in power at the Centre or in the States to stringently enforce anti Coronavirus protocol based on the basic premise that nobody is above the law.

    “It is up to those in power at the Centre or in the States to stringently enforce anti Coronavirus protocol based on the basic premise that nobody is above the law”
    Try saying that that “nobody is above the law” to the BJP ministers, Deve Gowda, BJP secretary Nadda, home minister Amrit Shah, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, and the ‘Kaavi ‘ clad seers like Suttur seer. The law whatever it is, this time wearing masks and observing social distancing ,WILL NOT APPLY to these people. This is 2020 independent India!
