Shri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens, Mysore



The other common name is “Mysore Zoo” and it is one of the oldest and well maintained zoos in India. It not only houses a wide range of animals, reptiles and birds but the garden maintained is no less than any of the botanical gardens. My grandparents referred to this place as “Khas Bangale” / Private Bungalow or the Maharajahs.





The zoo is 100 years old started by Chamarajendra Wodeyar in 1892. Now it is managed by the Zoo Authority of Karnataka. Mysore zoo is place for a fun filled outing as well as a place to learn more about the behavior of animals and birds. The zoo is sprawled over 250 acres of land including the Karanji lake.

The zoo has been successful in breeding various species of animals and rare and exotic birds in captivity. The zoo is well laid out with paths and big enclosures to house animals and birds. The enclosures are designed in such a way that the animals do not miss their natural environment.





A striking band stand is present near the Zebra enclosure, which is now used by people to finish off their picnic basket.

There is a children park with the famous concrete giant slide. The Gulgangi trees next to the children park are a favorite place for kids to collect the red gleaming gulgangi seeds.





The hippos lazing in the water and the swan enclosure offers a peak into the lives of these creatures.

The adjudging body is learnt to have assessed the progress made by all the 63 cities covered under JNN-URM and zeroed in on Mysore for the award.

HC issues bailable warrant against Mysore DC
Bangalore, July 8, DHNS
Quote:
The High Court has issued a bailable warrant against the Deputy Commissioner of Mysore and others for not implementing the court order regarding the award of compensation to a farmer whose land had been acquired for the Harangi irrigation project.

Hearing a contempt petition by Rajegowda, who had moved the High Court challenging the delay in awarding compensation for two acres of land acquired for the project in 1998 — a grant given by the State government in 1979 — the Division Bench comprising Justice K L Manjunath and Justice B V Nagarathna ordered issue of bailable warrant to the Deputy Commissioner and Special Land Acquisition officer for not implementing the court order and for abstaining from the proceedings.

The petitioner moved the court when he did not receive compensation even ten years after the acquisition of his land. The respondents then promised to pay compensation to Rajegowda. However, when the authorities did not keep the promise, he filed a contempt petition.

Magically misty mornings



While the showers have not been keeping regular date with the city, the charm and romance is not lost yet. Misty mornings have enticed the joggers, walkers and lazy ones all the same, says Preethi Nagaraj

A woman offers puja to a Peepul tree atop Chamundi Hill in Mysore. Even the biggest bag of lazy bones will find the mornings in this heritage city, most beautiful. Ask the joggers in the city and they will tell you how, instead of acting as a deterrant, the mist fills them with more energy to run the extra mile.

Rohit Shetty, who often walks on Kukkarahalli tank bund, says he has never been tempted to skip his morning walk. “It is tempting to snuggle up and sleep. But, once you drink on the beauty of nature here, you feel you are missing something if you don’t come here every single morning,” says the father-of-two, who is in mid forties now.

For Pratima Dikshit, who has made Mysore her temporary home on a sabbatical till she finishes her stint with Yoga at Gokulam, city has much to offer.

“It was crowded on Friday morning, just like any growing city which grapples with its identities -- of religion and modernity. Yet, climbing the Chamundi Hills was a experience by itself. I wouldn’t trade it for anything on earth!” she says.

Coffee, herbal juices, spicy breakfast, steamy idlis and crispy hot dosas -- Mysore mornings are worth every minute spent in the open. Enjoy while it lasts!

WADIYAR CLAIMS DODDAKERE MAIDAN AS HIS PROPERTY

Quote:
Mysore, July 9 (KCU&KK)- In a sudden unprecedented development, several signboards stating 'This land belongs to Srikanta Datta Narasimharaja Wadiyar. Trespassers will be prosecuted' were seen being erected all around the Doddakere Maidan (Garike Maala) this morning raising the curiosity of passers-by.

When SOM contacted MUDA Commissioner Dr. C.G. Betsurmath in this regard, he clarified that the said property bearing Survey No. 1 was a revenue land and did not come under the purview of MUDA. He contended that it could neither be claimed as a private property. Surprisingly, the erected signboards also cited a High Court order favouring the ownership of Wadiyar.

SOM tried to contact Tahasildar Manjunathswamy but he was learnt to be out of station while Assistant Commissioner Bharathi was not reachable on her mobile phone. However, sources at the Palace contended that the property was indeed a private one of Wadiyar and that permission should be sought to utilise the Maidan.
