STOP & TASTE THE 'KING OF FRUITS'

Quote:
Even in the days of severe drought, the farmers of Nagavala and Chikkadanahalli villages on the buzzing Mysore-Hunsur Road attract passersby by displaying heaps of mangoes on pushcarts on roadsides and approach them saying, 'stop and taste mango, the king of fruits.'



During summer every year, these villagers earn huge profits by selling varieties of mangoes like Sindura, Badami, Raspuri, Malgova and Alphonso grown on their lands.

They sell Sindura for Rs. 80, Badami at Rs. 120, Alphonso and Raspuri between Rs. 90 to Rs. 100, right from 6 in the morning stopping the speedy vehicles by shouting the same slogan. Those who are familiar with the taste of the king of fruits will invariably stop their vehicles to have a bite of mango.

Madesh, a farmer from Nagavala, says that they will not incur loss by selling mangoes at nominal prices and added that the yield this year is much less compared to last year following drought and only 100 to 200 of 500 trees in his land had yielded fruits. This low yield has resulted in the farmers hiking the price in the range of Rs. 10 to 30. Madesh's view is supported by Kumar, a farmer from Chikkadanahalli.

Fleet of pushcarts

Mango growers and those who know the trade display varieties of mangoes on hundreds of pushcarts parked on the highway from RMP junction in Yelwal to Nagavala village.

One can see many students enjoying summer holidays by passing their time selling mangos. They display these fruits in attractive designs to catch the attention of customers. They are in no way inferior to any business management grads in their approach.

African safari now on at Mysore

Quote:
The Chamarajendra Zoological Park (Mysore Zoo) here has scripted a success story bybeing able to get most of its inmates, brought from savannah region, breed in captivity. This year, first it was the cheetah, followed by giraffe, striped hyena and hippopotamus. All their young ones are now on display at the zoo. For visitors it is like a mini African safari.

“Six big mammals from savannah regions in Africa have been housed in the zoo - giraffe, cheetah, hippopotamus, white and black rhino, zebra and African elephant. Out of these cheetah, giraffe and hippopotamus have adopted well and bred successfully in the zoo in recent days. The success in breeding cheetah is noteworthy, as it is a protected species in Africa and its genetic base is very limited. Success rate both in captive and wild conditions is very low,” executive director of the coo BP Ravi said.

Mysore zoo had received four cheetahs (two males and two females) from South Africa on behalf of Leipzig Zoo, Germany, through animal exchange programme in March, 2011. During arrival itself one female, named Brinda, was in mid-stage of pregnancy and gave birth to three cubs later. All three cubs are playfully romping in their enclosure.

The other cheetah, named Maya and aged about 6 years, was very weak and had recurrent lameness of left forelimb. The zoo authorities nursed her to her full health after a prolonged treatment and she later mated her with Tejus a male cheetah and gave birth in captivity.

The giraffe Khushi, aged 7 years, gave birth to a second calf on April 14.She had been a resident of the zoo since October 2007. She was paired with Mysore zoo born hand-reared giraffe Krishnaraja, now aged 15 years.Khushi had delivered her first calf in 2009.

Nine-year-old female hippopotamus named Anjali has given birth to a healthy male calf on February 16. Anjali started breeding at the age of 6 years and had delivered thrice.

Anjali and new born calf are separated from the group of hippos. She is very protective about the new offspring and is hiding it from public view.

Water tariff dearer by 500 pc likely

Quote:
Mysore City Corporation and the state government are following unscientific methods in hiking water tariff. There is no such provision under Karnataka Municipal Act and Water Supply Act to increase water tariff, said convener of Association of Concerned and Informed Citizens of Mysore M Lakshman.

Addressing a press meet at Vani Vilas Water Works here on Thursday, he said, water tariff was last increased in 2006. Government has now taken a step to increase the tariff after almost six years. According to Karnataka Municipal Act and Water Supply Act, tariff can be increased at rate of 15 per cent once in three years.

“Considering span of six years, let the government increase the price at 30 per cent. But Government has hiked the tariff at rate of 500 per cent through MCC, which is an added burden for Mysoreans,” he added.

“There is no profit for anyone by suspending Jusco from the works. How can the government take a step to increase price when there is no proper supply of water.Government has not invested money to take decisions in haste. It is the money of tax payers which is being misused,” he said.

According to guidelines of JNnURM, price can be increased only after two years of implementation of full fledged project. Even then, the central government has to be consulted. Residents of Mysore were paying Rs 60 in addition with Rs 11 of UGD up to usage of 25,000 litres of water. After 25,000 litres, water was charged at Rs two per thousand littres. As per the new order to be effective from May 1, house hold water usage, up to 8,000 litres of water would be charged at Rs 56 and the 15 per cent UGD is increased to 40 per cent which would sum upto Rs 320.60. “It is a blatantly wrong decision taken by government,” Lakshman alleged.

Mysore zoo turns into a breeding hub

Quote:
When Mysore Zoo received four cheetahs late in March 2011, there was euphoria. Within days, the zoo authorities found out that one of the females was unwell and weak. With special care, she grew strong, and now, the conservation centre has five cubs, making it India's first zoo to have successfully bred the endangered species.

As Maya, 6, tends to her newborn cubs in an enclosure, it speaks volumes about the breeding measures the zoo has adopted to help this species survive. Maya is a classic example. She was shipped from Rhino Lion Nature Reserve in South Africa as part of an animal exchange programme the zoo had inked with Germany's Leipzig Zoo. She was weak and had a lame left forelimb. Prolonged treatment and nutritional care got her into shape.

In December, Maya was paired with a male cheetah Tejus, who is also 6 years old. A pregnant Maya got special care from the mid-gestation period. Three holding rooms adjacent to one another were prepared to provide an undisturbed dark place for delivery and neonatal care. To make it safe and private, the zoo authorities placed plywood planks, and CCTV infrared cameras were placed to monitor and record her behaviour. When she was shifted to the dark room, Maya preferred to stay in the dark room, executive director BP Ravi recollected.

On March 29, Maya delivered five healthy cubs. The delivery lasted 12 hours, monitored by vets through CCTV. Within hours, Maya was given nutritional supplements twice a day for better milk production. Luckily, Maya nursed all the cubs well and they are healthy. The mother and cubs will be monitored for the next few weeks.

Only one animal keeper, Krishna, is entrusted to enter the adjacent room to provide food and water while she nurses the cubs, a source said. This has a reason. When another hunting cheetah, Brinda, gave birth to three cubs in April 2011, zoo officials had noticed that she kept her resting place clean and preferred to defecate in the third room only, where the animal keeper could enter and clean the room, an indication that the mother does not welcome anyone near its young ones, and also to reduce any chance of inadvertent infection. Brinda was pregnant when she came here.

The zoo, which houses six big mammals from Africa -- giraffe, hunting cheetah, hippopotamus, white and black rhino, zebra and African elephant - has successfully bred three species. Giraffe and hippopotamus are the other two species bred in the zoo. The cheetah breeding is a major achievement as it is a protected species in Africa and its genetic base is limited. Success rate both in captivity and the wild is low, Ravi pointed out, attributing it to the skills of the animal staff and vets. It has 170 species.

The zoo has also been successful in breeding leopards, gaurs, dholes, wolves, exotic birds, reptiles, and also tigers, he stated, adding that too much intervention in the early stages does not yield the desired results. Good maternal care and suckling within hours of birth is the best way for the young to survive, Ravi explained.

SWAMI VIVEKANANDA'S HISTORIC VISIT TO MYSORE REMEMBERED


Quote:


Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda, Swami Mukthidanandaji of Ramakrishna Ashram, District In-Charge Minister S.A. Ramdas and Mayor Pushpalatha Chikkanna were taken on a chariot from the Palace Board office to the stage during the Viveka Padasparsha Smarana Samarambha programme at the Palace yesterday. Picture right shows a visually impaired person reading from the Braille Tourist Guide newly launched by the Palace Board.

Mysore, Apr. 23 - "Every Indian should imbibe the sayings and ideals of Swami Vivekananda in their behaviour to evolve as a social strength in society," suggested Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda.

He was speaking after inaugurating Viveka Padasparsha Smarana Samarambha progra-mme organised jointly by District Administration, Sri Ramakrishna Ashram and Palace Board at Palace premises here yesterday to commemorate the historic visit of Swami Vivekananda to the Palace.

"The country is passing through multiple problems which is destabilising the social system. That cannot be set right only through rules and regulations. Swami Vivekananda's prea-chings go a long way to rectify the ills of society. The youth is the driving force behind that and the government fully supports the youth movement in that context," assured Sadananda Gowda.

The Chief Minister released the Braille Tourist Guide which would be a boon to visually impaired tourists.

Sri Prabhanandaji, Sri Gautha-manandaji of Ramakrishna Ashram, District In-charge Minister S.A. Ramdas, Legislators Thontadarya, G. Madhusudhan, C.H. Vijayashankar, Siddaraju, Mallikarjunappa, Shankara-lingegowda, Mayor Pushpalatha Chikkanna, Deputy Mayor M.J. Ravikumar, Zoo Authority Chairman Nanjundaswamy, MUDA Chairman L. Nagendra, ZP Vice-President Dr. Shivram, DC P.S. Vastrad, Palace Board Dy. Director T.S. Subramanya and others were present.
Laser show: A laser show on the culture of Karnataka and the life of Swami Vivekananda directed by M.P.Karthik, an alumni of Ramakrishna Ashram had also been organised.

Vivekananda statue unveiled: Prior to the programmes at the Palace, the CM unveiled the 9 ft tall bronze statue of Swami Vivekananda placed inside a mantap, built at a cost of Rs. 14.5 lakhs at Vivekananda Circle.

The bronze statue was sculpted using 600 kg of bronze on the lines of the statue at Cheluvamba Park following the shifting of a statue made of plaster of paris to a nearby park. Corporator Sunanda Palanetra played a vital role in the installation of the new statue (picture above).

Niranjan Mutt: Inaugurating the renovated Niranjan Mutt on Krishnavilas Road where Swami Vivekananda stayed during his visit to the city, the CM said India was in need of Swami Vivekananda's ideals who inspired the country's youth with his messages on moral and spiritual values.

Minister S.A.Ramdas said that he had appealed to the CM to sanction Rs. 1 crore to spread the message of Swami Vivekananda to all schools in the district through mobile theatre.

CM mingles with people

Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda spent some time with public at Vivekananda Circle, where he had arrived well before the schedule time, by waving at them and exchanging greetings.

The Chief Minister had arrived at the venue for unveiling of the statue of the Veera Sanyasi and was waiting in his car for the arrival of Swami Mukthidanandaji of Ramakrishna Ashram when citizens who noticed the CM in the car rushed towards him. When the Police tried to stop them, Sadananda Gowda, who noticed the crowd, came out of the car and enquired their welfare.

He even posed with them for photographs as hundreds of citizens who had gathered at the venue shared their feelings with the Chief Minister.

INSTALLATION OF DR. RAJ'S STATUE IN CURZON PARK

Quote:
Today is the birthday of matinee idol late Dr. Rajkumar. But his full-length statue that got ready a couple of months ago is said to be gathering dust.



The Mysore City Corporation (MCC) authorities had reportedly taken a decision long back to get the statue installed at Curzon Park, but it appears MCC has gone back on its promise to unveil the statue on the thespian's birthday.

The decision to get the statue done was reportedly taken during the tenure of Ayub Khan as Mayor during 2008-09 and the work was entrusted to city sculptor Pramodini Deshpande of Pratima Gallary in Yelwala.

Initially it was proposed to have a 6ft tall bronze statue which was later changed to 9 ft with opinions differing among Mayors during the period. The outlay was Rs. 9.85 lakh and an official work order was reportedly given only in 2011. The pedestal to erect the statue was also got ready. Dr. Raj's statue, weighing 700 kg, depicts him in his typical dhoti and shirt with his right hand raised above his head in a waving gesture to his fans. Other than this, statues of Krishnadevaraya, Kuvempu and Dr. Ambedkar too were got ready on order from MCC but none has been taken delivery in payment though investing heavily on the projects, laments Pramodini.

Unveiling on Apr. 28

At a meeting held at MCC office last evening chaired by Mayor Pushpalatha Chikkanna it was reportedly decided to unveil the statue of Dr. Raj at Curzon Park on Apr. 28.

MCC looks to Centre for financial help

Quote:
Mysore City Corporation is looking at funds from the Centre to conserve some of the architectural marvels dotting the city. The nodal agency for the implementation of JNNURM projects is seeking financial assistance under the ambitious scheme for the urban renewal to attend to the vintage monuments in the Royal City. In all, it is looking at conserving 32 buildings, including Devaraja Market and Lansdowne Building. The civic body has worked on the project in detail and has submitted a detailed project report (DPR) to the Centre. MCC commissioner K S Raykar on Monday said the project is pending with the Union government.

This comes after the Centre extended the JnNURM mission by two years, allowing Mysore city to seek additional grants. Though Mysore was picked up by the Centre, given its heritage quotient, the department of heritage has failed to get sanction and implement the projects for conservation. Now, the MCC is looking at preservation in a big way. It started on the mission, rejuvenating Nishat Bagh abutting Hardinge Circle and pitched in conserving the site where Swami Vivekananda stayed in 1892, which is now named as Viveka Smaraka. It launched works for the conservation of professor's bungalow at Saraswathipuram. The palatial two-storey structure, which is a property of the University of Mysore, has been leased to MCC. The civic body has allocated the monument to Indian Heritage Cities Network (IHCN), a body of experts in conservation, which has relocated its headquarters from Delhi to Mysore. IHCN will extend its expertise in restoration and conservation to MCC.District minister S A Ramdas launched the works for conservation. This comes six months after the monument was taken over by MCC, where the IHCN moved in temporarily. IHCN is starting its work, renovating the building, according to IHCN president Rati Vinay Jha. The ground floor will house a museum, while the first floor will be used by IHCN after the monument is renovated. The works are expected to be completed in six months.

Old temples too will be renovated

Quote:
The age-old temples located inside the Mysore Palace fort will be renovated. District minister S A Ramdas on Monday said that some of the temples in the fort are century-old. "They have not been attended to for over five decades," he said, adding that a blueprint will be prepared to take up works at important temples in the Palace premises. The Tripurasundari Temple will be renovated at an estimated cost of Rs 90 lakh.The retail outlets atop the Chamundi Hills will be relocated and Devikere will be renovated at a cost of Rs 1 crore.

This is aimed at extending facilities to the devotees. The minister held a preliminary discussion with the officials and did a tour of the temples in the Palace premises. He said the environs surrounding the Chamundeshwari Temple atop the hills will be attended too, as there are plans to relocate the temple office and the prasadam counters located inside the temple complex.

"The relocation of nearly 100 retail outlets atop the hills is in on the cards, and traders will be rehabilitated at the under-construction commercial complex near the KSRTC bus stand," the minister said. The proposed four-laning of a 1.5-km stretch from the View Point atop the hills to the statue of Mahishasura will also be taken up. This will cost Rs 4 crore.

Mysore zoo: No space for new animals

Quote:
Citing the reason of ‘space constraint’, the Zoo Authority of Karnataka (ZAK) has ruled out acquisition of new animals for the century-old Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens. Situated on a sprawling 86-acre site on the way to Chamundi Hills, the zoo is almost full, with several types of birds and animals.
In this backdrop, the next destination for the expansion with the addition of more rare animals is obviously Bannerghatta Biological Park and Zoo near Bangalore, which has nearly 2,250 acres of area falling under three districts. “Our endeavour is to improve Bannerghatta Zoo and develop it on the lines of Mysore Zoo,” said ZAK Chairman Nanjundaswamy.
The Central Zoo Authority (CZA) has laid down a few guidelines on the number of animals and birds in every zoo in accordance with the land available. Accordingly, now there is absolutely no space in Mysore Zoo to build any new enclosure for the animals acquired via animal exchange programmes. The CZA is certainly not in favour of dumping animals in a small space.
Evaluating Day Crawl
Nanjundaswamy said a team of experts from the CZA would be visiting the Mysore Zoo on Monday for evaluating day crawl for tigers in the zoo. This has been introduced three months ago, and the team will be making observation on its progress.
Now the focus is on finding out partners for animals living in solitude. For instance, a female zebra has been living alone after her partner died of some disease. There are similar cases of an African Elephant and a Gorilla. The responsibility of finding partners for such animals has now fallen on the shoulders of the ZAK.
Nanjundaswamy said Bannerghatta Biological Park had the distinction of having 46 tigers — a record among the Indian zoos. All these years, the ZAK and the state government focused on the development of Mysore Zoo. Earlier, the Mysore zoo was situated on the outskirts of the city, but now it is surrounded by residential areas on three sides. This situation left no scope for its further expansion, he added.
Nanjundaswamy said the ZAK had sought the assistance of former Indian Cricketer and vice-chairman of the State Wildlife Board Anil Kumble to request Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to spare a couple of Indian Black Rhinos from the Sanjay Gandhi Zoo, Patna. The ZAK had written a letter to Kumble on this. “I am optimistic that Nitish Kumar will certainly heed Kumble’s request. The Mysore Zoo could get Asiatic Lion from Gujarat only after Kumble spoke to Gujarat CM Narendra Modi,” he added.

Ramdas: there is a plan to build a Basava Sandesha Bhavan

Quote:
‘Tourists can visit the bhavan and learn about Basaveshwara'

Medical Education Minister and district in-charge S.A. Ramdas has said there is a plan to construct a Basava Sandesha Bhavan in the heart of the city at a cost of Rs. 10 crore to propagate the values and ideals of 12th Century social reformer Basaveshwara.

Mr. Ramdas was speaking at a function to mark Basava Jayanti, organised by the district administration and other organisations, at the Kalamandira here on Tuesday.

He said tourists could visit the bhavan and learn about Basaveshwara and his revolutionary ideas that brought about positive changes in society. A Basava Adhyayana Peeta (Chair) would soon be established at the University of Mysore, he added.

Basaveshwara was a great humanist who worked for the welfare of all people by ushering in progressive thinking in society. However, several people plotted his ouster from the kingdom of Bijjala, where he had served in various capacities such as prime advisor, treasurer and army commander.

Basaveshwara favoured according importance to women in society and tried to usher in equality in society. These reforms were still relevant.

Earlier, a procession comprising cultural troupes was taken out from Sri Basaveshwara statue at Sri Basaveshwara Circle, near Gun House. It was flagged off by the former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa.

Guests offered floral tributes to a portrait of Basaveshwara at the Kalamandira.

Mayor Pushpalata Chikkanna presided over the function and spoke. Chamundeshwari MLA M. Satyanarayana and president of the Mysore Zilla Panchayat Sunita Veerappa Gowda also spoke.

Zoo, Karanji Lake Nature Park to be open on Tuesdays

Quote:
The Mysore zoo and Karanji Lake Nature Park will remain open on May 1, 8 and 15 (Tuesdays) on account of summer holidays for educational institutions.

The zoo and the nature park are usually closed on Tuesdays. But with tourists in town and students on vacation, the zoo management has decided to keep the two prime tourist spots open on the said dates.
