Refurbish Corporation Zonal Offices

September 26, 2019

Sir, Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) Offices badly need a thorough sprucing up. The Officers in-charge are failing to keep their surroundings tidy, free from dust and muck. Furniture in most of these Offices is outdated, damaged, torn and probably uncomfortable. There is no feel good factor for the people either who visit these Offices. Why…

It takes a MP to get an uprooted tree fully cleared

September 25, 2019

Mysuru: Following publication of a letter in Voice of the Reader column titled ‘Half-baked civic work puts public in danger’ in Star of Mysore dated Aug. 29, where a reader highlighted the tree inside the D.Ed College in Nazarbad being uprooted due to heavy rains and falling over the compound on to the Karanji Lake Road…

Fleeting Happiness: Lights on Ring Road

September 25, 2019

Sir, With Dasara-2019 round the corner, authorities are busy with last minute touch up works to make Mysuru as attractive as possible. The lights on Ring Road have been activated exactly after one year much to the joy and bewilderment of the residents and motorists. Joy, because the road looks beautiful and perplexed because someone…

Mantap is not blocking traffic signals, Trees are..

September 25, 2019

Sir, I read the news item “Dasara decoration: Cause for delight but a word of caution” in yesterday’s Star of Mysore about a Mantap with a lotus design erected at Kurubarahalli Circle (leading towards Chamundi Hill)on Lalitha Mahal Palace Road. The caption has a remark that the design is masking traffic signals. I travel on…

Reduced penalties dilute spirit of MV Act !

September 24, 2019

Sir, It is very unfortunate that some of the States including Karnataka have either reduced the increased traffic penalties for various violations of road safety rules or not implementing the amended Motor Vehicles Act (MV Act), due to the pressure of violators backed mostly by political parties (SOM dated Sept. 22, 2019) and thus diluted…

Paved footpaths as Service Road !

September 23, 2019

Sir, The Mysuru City Corporation has been kind enough to lay a 3 feet footpath with paver tiles in Mysuru’s extensions and one such beneficiary is the Temple Road in Jayalakshmipuram. It is, however, sad to see educated people parking their four-wheelers and two-wheelers on the footpaths without realising that they are encroaching on the…

Cows spotted in Kukkarahalli Lake

September 22, 2019

Sir, This evening at around 4 pm, I happened to see as many as five cows grazing in Kukkarahalli Lake. This is shocking as there was a news of the cattle attacking two unsuspecting women, while they were on their regular stroll, a couple of months ago. As I continued my walking, I spotted a…

Vijayanagar Stadium serenity destroyed by parking lots

September 21, 2019

Sir, The much-needed space for sportspersons and evening walkers in Vijayanagar Stadium is now encroached and disturbed by mindlessly allowing vehicles inside the stadium campus. Since a new private gym started operating in the public space (through tender, as informed), the gates have been kept wide open for vehicles to reach till the doorstep of…

A noble service indeed!

September 20, 2019

Sir, The article “A Noble Soul on a Noble Mission!” by Dr. Javeed Nayeem in his column “Over a cup of evening tea” (SOM dated Sept. 13) was really an apt one and those who visit Raghulal’s for buying medicines would surely agree with the author. I generally purchase my regular medicines from Raghulal and…
