Replace these damaged plastic lane-dividers

Sir, Sometime back plastic lane- dividers were fixed on city roads to have a smooth flow of traffic by not blocking the other side of the road and to inculcate lane discipline in vehicle-users. They occupy less space and unlike concrete blocks have better safety to the road-users in the event of crash. However, most…

Keeping our trains slow and safe!

Sir, One thing that really made Dr. Javeed Nayeem’s article worth reading was the way the writer noted about the panoramic sight that can be viewed when the train travels in moderate speed (SOM dated Sept.8). The variety of sights is something fabulous and endless literally. The landscapes, the village life from afar, sometimes the…

R.K. Narayan and the Film “Guide”

Sir, Recently I re-read the 1958 R.K. Narayan’s classic novel “The Guide” and also watched on YouTube the 1965 Dev Anand’s film of the same name. The book is an all-time best- seller as it has had nearly 80 reprints and the film, of course, was a box office super hit. I remember seeing the…

Sorry state of Nanjangud Roads

Sir, A look at the present condition of Nanjangud’s two major roads (RP Road and MGS Road) is highly horrifying. Work on replacing age-old open drainage with the box-type ones is on.  One side of the road is already dug but the excavated loose earth is haphazardly dumped at the very centre, blocking traffic movement…

Non-Green Ganesha idols: Do we believe in rule of law?

Sir, Your photo-news titled, “It’s PoP culture! Hopes of Green Ganesha Sink” (Star of Mysore dated Sept. 2) will sadden not only environmentalists but also those who believe in the rule of law.
