Problems faced by Mysureans

November 13, 2019


These are some of the observations on problems faced by us in our day-to-day lives in this city:

  1. Why are we getting water from tankers even though the reservoirs and dams are full? It is the responsibility of KUWS&DB and Vani Vilas Water Works to supply clean, potable drinking water to the entire city.
  2. Most of the roads in the city are full of craters and potholes. This poses a hazard to motorists and pedestrians. Pavement paver blocks too are unevenly laid which is extremely dangerous for pedestrians, especially after dusk.
  3. There is a vegetable market behind Dasara Exhibition Grounds and near Mall of Mysore. As vegetables are strewn around by the vendors, a lot of cattle roam around the entire area throughout the day and night. They feed on the rotting vegetables, loiter around and create a big nuisance for pedestrians and motorists. This is also a health hazard as a lot of garbage collects there, which contributes to mosquito breeding and insects. Also, there are a lot of garbage heaps around the entire city.
  4. The monkey menace is almost unbearable. They all come from near JSS Hospital and enter our apartments.
  5. A lot of accidents occur because of reckless driving by motorists, autos and motorcyclists. The cops should be alert and levy heavy fines for reckless driving, speeding, driving on the wrong side of the roads and breaking traffic signals. Street lights should also be installed on all roads and should be working after dusk too.

Mysuru is a beautiful city which is neglected. It would be good for the betterment of the city if all the authorities concerned wake up and take prompt action.

    The city bus shelter in front of the post office v v Mohalla, has occupied the full width of foot path At the back is a open drain and p o compound A pedestrian has to inevitably walk on the road and this is a busy bus stop and one cannot know which bus stops and when stops people rush to catch the bus and the pedestrian is caught cross wise in the crowd and a Senior pedestrian on the road may fall between bus and shelter and possibly falls below the back bus wheels. And on the other side a vegitable vendor occupies the the entire width of foot path . Thus the passage to p o is narrow and foot path is almost one foot higher than road and for the aged to negotiate the height is almost impossible .

    Not the problem with Mysuru alone. Every city in India faces the same problems. As for Mysuru once a beautiful city, that was in 1950s only, and after that with rapid increase in population, Mysuru’s population doubled first in a decade and quadrupled in 2 decades! Indians produce babies faster and more in numbers, and the country is sinking by the weight of this population explosion.
    As for the 5 issues listed above, blame the corrupt central,state and municipal administration, who have sunk this country well into third world status just 70 years after independence. Yes, the PM is interested in Chandrayaan, when problems like those listed are present in every city in India.
