Visitors complain of frequent theft

Mysuru, May 25- An incident of a tourist from Gujarat being robbed of Rs. 2 lakh cash has been reported in Palace premises here yesterday afternoon.

The tourist, who lost the money, has been identified as Mallika Mehta of Ahmedabad in Gujarat.

It is reported that Mallika along with her husband Prakash and three of her relatives, who had come to city on a sightseeing trip, had visited the Palace.

The theft reportedly took place when Mallika, who returned to the shoe stand to collect her footwear after going around the Palace, kept her vanity bag with cash aside while wearing her footwear.

As it was a holiday yesterday and there was a lot of rush in the Palace, the miscreants made use of the opportunity, stole Rs. 2 lakh cash kept inside the vanity bag and fled from the spot.

Dear Sir,

I write this open letter on behalf of about 5,000 families residing in Siddharthanagar Layout, Alanahalli Layout and K.C. Nagar Layout in Mysuru who have been subjected to financial and mental trauma as the District Authorities are not effecting Khata transfers of properties and also not issuing building licences in those layouts for the reason these MUDA formed layouts are coming under Kurubarahalli Survey No. 4, Alanahalli Survey No. 41 and Chowdalli Survey No. 39 following a controversy raised by MLC G. Madhusudan as long back as 2012.

The real issue of ownership of land in the above mentioned villages and the survey numbers mentioned therein is about conversions of, what is known in the Revenue Department language as B-Kharab Land into A-Kharab Land in about 1000 acres. Not going into the nitty-gritty of this controversy, following this complaint by MLC Madhusudan, Government had issued a notification, it is learnt, asking the District Authorities not to effect any Khata transfers or sale of land coming under these survey numbers. As far as the residents of those layouts mentioned above are concerned the government had not asked for a ban on issuing permission for building plans and yet no plans are cleared.

This problem, faced by the people living in those MUDA layouts, was brought to the notice of all the MLAs of Mysuru city but with no positive response. Finally these victims of maladministration, an administration which is apparently not people-friendly, the aggrieved residents of these layouts approached MLC G. Madhusudan, who was the father of the problem faced by the site and house owners of these MUDA layouts. Fortunately, for the victims MLC Madhusudhan responded positively and brought this issue to the Chief Minister’s attention by a letter dated 10-04-2015. Following this, the Additional Secretary to the Chief Minister Dr. H. Sindhe Bhimsen Rao wrote a letter to MLC Madhusudan saying that regarding the subject he ...more

Exploring Andaman

I have always wondered why people praise other countries in terms of exotic locations instead of exploring our own. I am sure many people love to travel, but they aren’t willing to take risks. They prefer travelling to mainstream destinations rather than to unexplored places. The moment we hear the word ‘beach’ we think of Goa. This is how attuned we are to mainstream destinations. But I am writing this article for those who wish to explore India’s beauty,” says Ananya S. Rao, a I PU student of Deeksha Pushkarni in city, who recently visited Andaman.

Now read on...

Many a time I have heard people wanting to travel abroad to visit places like the Maldives, Hawaii and Fiji to get the ‘exotic islands feel’ but why go there when you have such beautiful islands in our very own country? If you’re the kind of person who is willing to be adventurous, then Andaman is your one-stop destination. It is one of the places on earth that is brushed by strokes of divinity.

As soon as I got off the plane at Port Blair, I could feel the place welcoming me with open arms. I felt rejuvenated, a positive energy gushed through my veins.

I was told about the famous ‘Sound and Light’ show at the Cellular Jail to be held that evening, so I checked in to my room, freshened up and was on my way but since there was time I first visited Corby’s Cave, a crowded local beach at Port Blair. Later, I wandered around the cellular jail and couldn’t help but feel what our freedom fighters went through when they were imprisoned during our freedom struggle. The ‘Sound and Light’ show filled great patriotism into me by showcasing the lives led by the prisoners there.

The very next morning we were on our way to Havelock, filled with breath-taking beaches and adventure sports destinations. To reach there from Port Blair we needed to take a cruise which would drop us at Havelock in approximately an hour or two. The cruise was again an experi...more
