Finally one sane city!


For a long time, I have been cursed, singled out for being pro-Mysore in all my thoughts. I have always argued that its the best city to do anything as it has sane people unlike my foster homes ;).

The courts in the city have once again proved it. For a change, the court has ordered to remove the name M.G – off a road. Believe it, this has happened in India! Mahatma Gandhi may be revered, idolised everywhere, but there are too many roads, buildings and political parties claiming his name and this must stop.

There was this good old road ‘Vani Vilasa Road’ in Mysore rightly titled after one of the scions of the Mysore Royal family. For no good reasons probably our dear city corporation ordered it to be renamed as M.G Road! The court has now ordered the restoration of the old name and seems sane. The news on the order can be read on – http://www.starofmysore.com/main.asp?type=news&item=21790.

    🙂 am all laughs dude.. reading all your blogs i get reminded of a scene from “Swadesh”, probably the best
    shahrukh movie.. its a scene were village leaders have all gathered, guess it was dussera time and start discussion about life abroad and eventually it turns out to be mera bharat mahan blah blah… What shahrukh replies to them is essentially what most of us,INDIANS, do. For more details please watch the movie. Identity.. Culture.. Religion.. don’t think am going to start a debate here, but as long as people are happy glorifying a person or a place 😉 let them be. You see being happy is more important!!!

    I do agree there is a bengalooru vs Karnataka in the open.. but there is going to be bengalooru vs mysooru if `real` bangaloreans read your blogs.
