Good initiative by City Traffic Police

September 24, 2020

Sir, Apropos the news item “City Traffic Police installs median reflectors, road reflector studs” (Star of Mysore dated Sept.11), kudos to City Traffic Police for initiating the installation of median reflectors and road reflector studs. Medians erected on many of the roads are not visible during night hours. Installation of these median reflectors is a…

Full occupancy in KSRTC buses: Not a good move

September 23, 2020

Sir, The recent order by the Government permitting KSRTC buses to have 100 percent occupancy is not a good move when the pandemic is on a rampage. People from different places board a bus and sit without social distancing norms, rubbing shoulders with co-passengers — a sure recipe for a disaster waiting to happen. Even…

Will our authorities attend to people’s problems?

September 22, 2020

Sir, Like many other concerned citizens I too wonder if the common issues and problems highlighted in Star of Mysore including the pictures actually showing the problems are actually attended to by the Departments or authorities concerned. If not all, at least some of them and which ones? If majority of the issues raised are…

Re-opening of Schools: Not a wise move

September 21, 2020

Sir, I fully agree with the views of Dr. Javeed Nayeem in his article titled “Re-Opening Schools, An Unwise Move” in SOM dated Sept.18. I wish to add that a few children may become carriers of the deadly virus — bring home the virus and inadvertently pass it on to elders and super seniors at…

Dr. M.V. Gopalaswamy’s farsightedness

September 21, 2020

Sir, Here is another special great-ness of Dr. M.V. Gopalaswamy (MVG) which many, except the involved, will not know. This shows what a farsighted vision he had. Statistics was the subject available only in Maharaja’s College, Mysore, for the whole of Mysore State (Karnataka) till late forties and early fifties. Perhaps there was no post…

Importance of registering nomination in banks

September 20, 2020

Sir, One recent incident by my close relative on claiming amount from the SB account of the deceased prompted me to write this letter. My uncle expired last month due to old age. He had all his accounts and transactions in one of the nationalised banks. His family members approached his bank to claim the…

Appeal to MCC Commissioner

September 19, 2020

Sir, This is with reference to the property tax drive to ensure Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) has enough funds for development works. In this regard, I being a law-abiding citizen, have been paying property taxes up to date. But this year I am really disappointed the way it’s being managed. I made five visits to…

More on Akashvani Gopalaswamy family

September 18, 2020

Sir, It was very nice to read about Dr. M.V. Gopalaswamy (MVG), who founded Akashvani, Mysore (SOM dated Sept.12). However, I would like to add little more information to the MVG family. Two of his sons were Pilots in the Indian Air Force. The elder son was late Air Cmde M.G. Ramachandra (Bharathi’s father). He…

MCC house tax: Notice to tax paid?

September 17, 2020

Sir, This has reference to the news item “Tax defaulters warned of property seizure” (SOM dated Sept.2). While it is gratifying to note that MCC is taking steps to recover the house tax by issuing notices to defaulters, it has also issued notice to the tax paid already. I am a prompt tax-payer for the…
