No more ‘Tiger’ menace: But what next?

March 11, 2019

Sir, The front page headline “No more ‘Tiger’ menace in city” (SOM dated Mar.9) is very aptly titled and conveys the entire saga that was enacted so badly for the last 10 years. It is unbelievable that it took so many years for the authorities to realise the folly in implementation of the otherwise well-intentioned…

Sir, I travel in Hebbal area daily and recently a manhole has surfaced right in the middle of the road without considering the height of the road. It is creating a lot of problems to motorists when they try to come on the wrong side to avoid these manholes. During night time this is not…

Lessons from auto driver Arumugam

March 10, 2019

Sir, The article ‘Lessons from auto driver Arumugam’ by Dr. R. Balasubramaniam was too good a read (SOM dated Feb. 25).

Rebuild Devaraja Market and Lansdowne Building

March 9, 2019

Sir, Unlike other ‘heritage’ structures like the Taj Mahal, Mysore Palace, Belur-Halebid temples, where people appreciate them from a distance, Devaraja Market and Lansdowne Building have withstood the rough and tough and wear and tear for more than a century and a quarter. Because these heritage structures were neglected and not maintained and were allowed…

Sir, I am grateful to Dr. S.N. Bhagirath for presenting a comprehensive article about our great Kannada professor Dr. D.L.

Increasing burden of house rents

March 5, 2019

Sir, There was a time in the past when house rents in Mysuru were affordable. The scenario has changed unimaginably now and it would cost anywhere between Rs. 15,000 and Rs. 20,000 to rent out a decent accommodation — what with Mysuru rates competing vigorously with Bengaluru.  Landlords would feel bad, squirm and very apologetically…
