Bus shelter needed on Mysuru-Nanjangud Highway

Sir, A bus shelter near Devaraj Urs bridge (over Kabini river) junction on Mysuru-Nanjangud Highway leading to Industrial Estate, is very much needed to help passengers stay well-covered against rain and scorching sun, especially during noon. There are no trees in the vicinity either to take refuge from nature’s fury.  Naturally people stand little away…

Taxing times for tax-payers !

Sir, Today I witnessed the trials and tribulations of tax-payers at MUDA Office. A large number of spirited senior citizens, both men and women, were among the crowd. I cannot say that  it was a pleasant experience standing in a queue for quite some time. I thought I was doing a sacred duty as a…

Excellent editorial on environmental concern

Sir, Being myself an environmentalist, I am tempted to appreciate your Editorial titled ‘From Despair To Hope’ which made an excellent read (SOM dated Apr.25). As an ardent reader of Star of Mysore, perhaps since its ‘birth,’ it is my observation that  your Editorials are always topical and good. I had participated in public campaigns…

Maintain R.K. Nagar Children’s Park

Sir, Kudos to all the stakeholders for beautifying Ramakrishnanagar (RK Nagar) Park by adding an Open Air Gym and an exclusive park for children. I am a regular visitor to this park and the big eyesore here is that adults and even grown up kids use the children’s park resulting in damage to equipment. One…

‘Road to Hell’ inside our neighbourhood

Sir, This refers to your well-timed Weekend Star Supplement (Road to Hell) last Saturday focussing on dangerous roads. This particular road in Vijayanagar 1st Stage, 6th Cross, 5th Main, could qualify for a spot on that list.
