Planetarium, Science Centre and Democracy Building

A proposal from the then DC to Union Minister

Mysore/Mysuru: The then Mysuru Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri, during an interaction with journalists organised by MDJA in April this year,  had said that she had written to Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman urging her to establish a Planetarium in Mysuru as the place attracts lakhs of tourists every year. “Our plan is to establish a Planetarium, Science Centre and Democracy Building in Mysuru,” the then DC had said. She said that the structures are planned to be established on the lands of the University at the foot of Chamundi Hill. “Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was looking for a proper place for a Planetarium and it was planned to establish in Dharwad, but we have requested the Minister to establish the same in Mysuru. A large number of tourists visit Mysuru and we should have a Planetarium here,” the DC had then said.

All the construction will be made using Central funds and a Science Centre has also been proposed besides a Democracy Building. “The Science Centre will come up on seven acre next to the Planetarium. In addition, the Election Commission of India (ECI) is planning to establish a Democracy Building,” she had stated.

    It is not for nothing that every Mysorean loved this most beloved DC that Mysore ever had. She had always thought for the good of the city and its people. She is a true democrat and a forward-thinking lady we had ever met. Her leaderlike visage was evident in one of her TED Talk shows, she had spoken on the stage which none others can think of doing from an august podium of science, technology, and forward-thinking so eloquently. We highly feel having lost a DC of her caliber so early and too soo. Mysoreans can never condone the circumstances that lead her to being snatched away from their beautiful city at the height of its need. Had she been here for her full tenure, she would have turned this city into an international tourism city, which it already is, due to its inherent glory and beautiful ambiance bestowed by nature with Chamundi Hills one side and lush lakes, lovely gardens, and royal palaces dotting every inch of the city. In fact, in one of the jibs, a certain leader had called her the Maharani of Mysore. Can there be anything less Mysoreans liken her to be?

    Idiotic poster above.
    Mysuru does not need this planetarium, which is yet another instance of the rape of this city’s eco culture which is rapidly vanishing.
    Mysuru is already destroyed beyond recognition.
    What is next? A large mosque like Jama Masjid like in Delhi, so that Gulf States Sheikhs accompanied by their Malayaee Muslim assistant can visit this city, which is planned to be linked to Kerala by rail and road?
