Making a mockery of helmet rule

Sir, Some two-wheeler riders/ pillions in Mysuru do not wear helmets and instead they carry them (to avoid being penalised by police, if caught) either on their lap or hold them in one hand while use the other hand to ride in a risky way.  On the other hand, we find the Police who are…

Most of the medians are a nuisance

Sir, I agree with the views of MRG Murthy (SOM dated Saturday, 12th August) that medians built on a majority of roads are more of a nuisance than a means to ensure the smooth flow of traffic. In case of an emergency situation, manoeuvrability becomes a casualty. I have seen in New York that barricades…

Mysuru turning into a village !

Sir, Roads in East Mysuru at areas including Kalyanagiri Nagar, Sathagalli Layout, Raghavendra Nagar and Azeez Sait Nagar have become an eyesore and a mess for road users. Though the roads were dug up almost a year ago to lay UGD pipes and new water connection lines, they have not yet been re-laid. One must…

‘Thuntara Thanda’ in Mysuru’s Freedom Movement !

Sir, S.N. Venkatnag Sober’s feature on “Mysuru’s tryst with Freedom Movement: Recalling Mysuru’s role in India’s Freedom Struggle” (Star of Mysore dated Aug. 13) was interesting. I was happy to find the name of my uncle — my father’s elder brother — G.R. Swamy in the write-up. G.R. Swamy aka G. Ramaswamy was a veteran…

Missing part of a message!

Sir, It was a noble gesture of my friend KBG to dedicate his Abracadabra written in the midnight (we got our hard-earned Independence too in the midnight) to appear in Star of Mysore dated Aug. 14, 2017, for nothing much I did to his column. As a prolific and seasoned writer with a rich journalistic…

Heaven lies under the feet of a mother

Sir, KBG’s Abracadabra titled  ‘MOTHER’ published in Star of Mysore dated Aug. 8 was thought-provoking. I had tears in my eyes when I read that article. Two incidents have been narrated in the article. One is the outcome of materialistic approach towards our life under the influence of Western culture and the other incident of…

Replace cement signboards with steel boards

Sir, I am a resident of J.P. Nagar 7th Cross, ‘E’ Block, next to Sai Baba Temple Road. The cement signboards indicating the Cross, Main and House Nos. are in a bad condition — some of them are not visible and in some signboards letters are completely faded making it difficult for people in locating…

Stop vandalising Krishnaraja Boulevard

Sir, As mentioned by me in my earlier letters too, the Krishnaraja Boulevard is one of the finest stretches in the city. This near 600 m stretch is adorned by many heritage structures, including the Law Courts and the Zilla Panchayat, on its sides. With wide footpaths on both the sides and hosting a beautiful…

Install Road Humps

Sir, There is heavy traffic movement around Deve Gowda Circle at Siddartha Layout, with heavy trucks passing through this junction. Also, there are no road humps or signal lights or Traffic Police to patrol the busy junction. This leads to frequent accidents at the Circle. Will the authorities concerned install road humps or traffic signal…
