Preparations: Minister for Panchayat Raj and Rural Development inspecting the infrastructure works in connection with the panchalinga darshana at Talakad on Saturday.

Mysore: All roads leading to Talakad, which is gearing up for panchalinga darshana slated to be held in November, will be asphalted and the Government will spend Rs. 120 crore for various infrastructure projects in connection with the event.

Disclosing this, Mysore district in-charge and Minister for Panchayat Raj and Rural Development Shobha Karandlaje told presspersons here on Saturday that the quality of highway works connecting to Talakad in T. Narsipura, would be on par with the State Highway roads and pilgrims would be provided civic amenities like drinking water. Emphasis will also be on sanitation in view of large number of pilgrims expected to converge for the occasion.

The panchalinga darshana entails darshan of the five Shiva Lingas — Vaidyeshwara, Pataleshwara, Maruleshwara, Mallikarjuneshwara and Arakeshwara — on a single day during the auspicious period which again depends on configuration of different stars and lasts for a few weeks. The last panchalinga darshana was held in 2006 and the earlier one in 1993.

Ms. Shobha Karandlaje, who inspected the work in progress at Talakad, said the temple town of T. Narsipura will also stand to benefit as the infrastructure facility created would be of permanent nature. The bridge across the Kapila River which connects T. Narsipura with Kollegal will also be repaired, she said. Movement of vehicles on the bridge has been stopped as it is in bad shape and repair work will be taken up soon.

Ms. Karandlaje also held discussions with local community who were highly critical of the previous Governments which, they said, had made similar commitments but failed to implement any of them. Though crores of rupees was spent on the roads and other infrastructure projects, there was nothing concrete as evidence to show that money had been invested at all, said a few people from Talakad.

The local community members led by zilla panchayat member K.C. Lokesh, also drew attention to the menace of sand mining and Ms. Karandlaje urged the Deputy Commissioner P. Manivannan to take necessary steps in this connection.

The local people were particular that sand mining be banned at least in the run-up to the panchalinga darshana and a month after its completion and accused the officials of conniving with the sand mining lobby.

Ms. Karandlaje concurred with the views of the local people and said that though the previous Government at the helm of affairs when the previous panchalinga darshana was held in 2006, claimed that it had spent Rs. 40 crore, the road was pathetic. “However, all roads will be ready before the commencement of the panchalinga darshana”, she added.

Mr. Lokesh sought permanent drinking water facility for the local community which would also help the weekend tourists who visit the place.

Tks for the feedback akash. Its very pathetic such a beautiful city is
being neglected by the authorities as this lovely city has great potential
for attracting tourists from all over. Size does not matter. To me no doubt Mysore is blessed by mother nature for its lovely vegetation and hilly-areas like Chamundi hill which is very unique for which Karnataka state should be proud of. Hopefully Karnataka authorities wake up and do something to facelift this wonderful city.

PALACE TO GLOW WITH LED BULBS

Mysore, July 28 (BRS)- The Mysore Palace Board has decided to use LED bulbs for illuminating the Palace, probably during this Dasara.

Out of the 122 heritage buildings in the city, the Mysore Palace is fully equipped for illumination. As conventional incandescent bulbs are being used for illumination, excessive power is consumed for the purpose.

In order to save electricity, the Palace Board had decided to replace the conventional bulbs by Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL). However, CFL bulbs with the required quality characteristic could not be procured. In that backdrop, use of LED which are brighter and long lasting, has been thought of.

Philips' trials

The Board has discussed the matter with representatives of Philips Company. The company is learnt to have carried out trials with 10 types of bulbs and the Board showed its inclination towards installing LED.

The work of constructing the Mysore Palace spanned from 1897 to 1912 under the supervision of architect H. Irwin. The construction cost was Rs. 41,47,913 only. The structure built on 67 acres is illuminated by more than one lakh bulbs.

The light emitted by the bulbs enhances the beauty of the structure with its brown-coloured exterior. Power amounting to about 1,20,000 KW hours is required for one year's illumination.

Power consumption


By using LED bulbs, power consumption can be reduced by nearly 70 per cent. (Instead of 15 Watt bulbs, only 3 Watts LED bulbs suffice).

The conventional bulbs fixed to the exterior of the Mysore Palace building at present, numbering more than one lakh, are of 15 watts each. The monument is illuminated for one hour in the evenings on all Sundays, public holidays and on special days.

The bill of electricity charges amounts to Rs. 5.5 lakh over a two-month period. Between 25,000 and 30,000 bulbs have to be replaced every year.

In that backdrop, replacing the conventional bulbs by LED bulbs is aimed at reducing the power charges and also the cost of managing the Palace illumination.

While a CFL bulb costs Rs. 15, each LED bulb costs Rs. 300 to Rs. 400. The authorities are learnt to have decided on the measure irrespective of the cost of the bulbs, in order to keep down the power charges.

Decision soon

The agenda relating to replacing the conventional bulbs by LED is expected to figure in the next meeting of the Palace Board scheduled to take place soon.

A report submitted by engineers is learnt to have favoured the use of LED bulbs in preference to CFL. That aspect will be presented in the meeting, P.V. Avaradi, Deputy Director, disclosed to the media.

What is LED?

LED is the abbreviation of Light Emitting Diode. The electronic product is used in indicators, traffic signals and other devices. While ordinary bulbs have a life of about 1,000 hours, a good quality LED bulb lasts for more than one lakh hours. In ordinary bulbs, nearly 80% of electrical energy is used for heating the filament, but 90% of power is used in LED for emitting light. However, the bulb costs exorbitantly.

• No ropeway for Chamundi Hill

• Parking Complex for Zoo

• Cleaning work of temples to be outsourced

• First Pravasi Soudha in Mysore


Bangalore, July 28 (KMS, VH &MRS)- Mysore city may get the facility of heli-tourism to boost tourism on the model of Hampi heli-tourism during this Dasara.

Disclosing this at the second meeting of Dasara High Power Committee in Vidhana Soudha this morning, Tourism Minister G. Janardhan Reddy said that three or four helicopters would be pressed into service soon to attract the tourists.

The Minister also announced the project of seven Pravasi Soudhas in the State and that the first Soudha would be constructed in Mysore.

Referring to the comprehensive development plan for Chamundi Hill, the Minister said that the State had submitted a project worth Rs. 40 crore to the Central government.

Presiding over the meeting, Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa announced that the government had decided to constitute separate Tourism Authorities for Mysore and Shimoga for development of tourist spots with an allocation of Rs. 50 crore each.

He directed the officials to formulate rules and regulations in this regard.

Clean environment

Yeddyurappa asked the officials to keep clean the environs of Chamundeshwari temple atop Chamundi Hill, Srikanteshwara temple in Nanjangud, Mahade-swara temple atop MM Hills and other important Muzrai temples in Mysore and Chamarajanagar districts. "If you cannot do the job, outsource it," Yeddyurappa instructed the officials.

The Chief Minister directed the officials to take precautionary measures to maintain law and order during Dasara.

Mysore District in-charge Minister Shobha Karandlaje, who referred to the parking problem faced by the visitors to Mysore Zoo, directed the Zoo Director Vijayaranjan Singh to take action for the construction of a parking complex with private participation.

No ropeway

Panchalinga Darshan

Urban Development Secretary Jyothiramalingam underlined the need for providing toilet facilities at Talakad at a cost of Rs. 70 lakh in the wake of Panchalinga Darshan in November.

Transfers

An official attending the meeting advised the government not to transfer officials frequently as it would hamper the progress of development works.

"Officials attend meetings here and they will be transferred after their return to Mysore," he added.

Varsity to restore Kukkarahalli Kere

Special Correspondent

Project will be taken up with funding of Rs. 3 crore from the State Government

Environmentalists and the public can provide inputs for the restoration project

Facilities for yoga, meditation and exercise will be created at the lake


— PHOTO: M.A. SRIRAM

Facelift: A detailed project report and a master plan to take up the restoration and development of Kukkarahalli Kere will be prepared in due course.

MYSORE: The University of Mysore will take up comprehensive restoration and development of Kukkarahalli Kere with funding of Rs. 3 crore from the State Government. A detailed project report (DPR) and a master plan will be prepared in due course.

It has sought the services of experts for technical consultation and for preparation of the DPR and the master plan, which will assess the present condition of the lake, its physical structures and characteristic features in order to ascertain the extent of restoration required, said K.M. Jayaramaiah, convener, Kukkarahalli Lake Conservation Committee.

Mr. Jayaramaiah told The Hindu that there would also be a reconnaissance survey and the extent of the lake’s boundary would be determined while physical and chemical tests and studies would be conducted in addition to a detailed study of the flora and fauna of the lake.

A key aspect of the restoration work is assessing the required capacity of the sewage treatment plant to be set up on the northern side of the lake. It will treat the waste water currently entering the lake from Paduvarahalli, and the treated waste water will be let into the lake.

The university also proposes to establish a biodiversity park on the northern side of the lake while a compound wall will be constructed to demarcate the boundary of the lake adjoining Hunsur Road. Also in the offing is a chain-link fence along the boundary wherever essential.

Mr. Jayaramaiah said environmentalists and the public could provide inputs for the restoration project and discuss it with the executive engineer of the university.

The existing water inflow to the lake, which has a water-spread area of 160 acres, will be augmented by improving the existing inlets.

There are seven inlets to the lake, of which three are major contributory drains to the lake from its catchment area.

The soil and silt collected in the inlets will also be removed in order to improve the inflow and the natural run-off. In addition, there is a proposal to augment water inflow by diverting untreated Cauvery water during the rainy season using the existing waste-water pipeline. Rainwater harvesting will also be introduced to augment water into the lake.

The authorities have also proposed creating facilities for yoga, meditation and exercise given the growing popularity of the lake among walkers.

Also in the offing is a mini-hall with lighting to facilitate meditation while a horticultural park will be created at each corner of the lake.
Kuvempu Vana

The existing Kuvempu Vana will be improved by creating additional facilities for children and families.

Medicinal plants and local species will be planted around the lake and the existing eucalyptus trees and stumps will be removed. Other plans include improving the boating facility and the jetties.

The university has also proposed introducing pedal boats.

In addition, the lake will be dredged to remove silt and waste collected on the lake bed without disturbing the bunds and the ecosystem. The islands where birds roost will be strengthened by constructing stone revetments.

CHAMUNDI HILL DEVELOPMENTWORK LAUNCHED

Mysore, July 31 (RK&MRS)- The District Administration today launched the work on development of Chamundi Hill, the abode of Goddess Chamunde-shwari, as announced by Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa during his visit to the Hill temple on July 24.

The Chief Minister had promised to develop the Hill on Tirumala Tirupati model.

The guddali puja was performed this morning by temple priest Shashishekhara Dikshit at the foot of the Hill where the steps commence.

The project has been entrusted to Nirmiti Kendra.

Mysore Urban Development Authority Superintending Engineer Shivakumar, Nirmiti Kendra Project Manager M.T. Manjunath, Project Engineer H.B. Satish, Chamundi Hill Temple Executive Officer Shivalingaiah and other officials were present.

Resetting of 1,000-odd steps would be taken up in the initial phase, which would approximately cost Rs. 85 lakh.

The work involves levelling, dressing and resetting the steps and construction of resting places and view points.

Initially, 150 steps would be reset and it would continue after eliciting views from the public.

The work would be expedited after Aug. 5 when the District in-charge Minister Shobha Karandlaje holds a meeting with officials.

Executive Officer Shivalingaiah told Star of Mysore that the Minister was keen on revising the Comprehensive Development Plan.

The resetting of steps would be completed within one-and-half months.

Nirmiti Kendra Project Manager Manjunath disclosed that all the works related to Hill development will be completed within three months.

All the shops on either side of the road leading to the temple will be demolished and shops constructed for 85 licence holders.

The stretch from the statue of Mahishasura upto the temple would be made one-way with shops selling only puja materials on one side.

Another line of shops would be constructed on the road leading to Devikere which also will be one-way. These shops will sell a variety of articles including mementoes. KSRTC will construct bus stand under JNNURM in an area of 27 guntas atop the Hill.

K'HALLI LAKE CONTINUES TO BE POLLUTED: JAYARAMAIAH

Mysore, July 31 (BRS)- K.M. Jayaramaiah, Convenor of Kukkarahalli Lake Protection Committee, has expressed concern about the continued deterioration and unabated pollution of Kukkarahalli Lake here.

Although work costing lakhs of rupees were done by staff of Mysore City Corporation to prevent sewage from flowing into Kukkarahalli Lake following instructions by S. Suresh Kumar, Minister for Urban Development, following his visit on August 25, 2008 to the lake side where sewage was flowing into the lake, the sewage continues to flow into the lake unabated, Jayaramaiah said in a press release.

This was brought to the notice of Mysore District In-charge Shobha Karandlaje during her visit to the city on July 25, 2009 at the meeting at Abdul Naser Sab State Institute for Rural Development on developing the lake, where at Deputy Commissioner P. Manivannan and Vice- Chancellor of University of Mysore Prof. V.G. Talwar were also present, he added.

When the continued pollution of the lake due to flow of sewage and waste water from the residences in Paduvarahalli was brought to the notice of the City Corporation Commissioner over phone on July 20, 2009 by the Convenor, the Commissioner responded saying that he would take urgent action on the issue.

If only the flow of waste water and sewage coming from Padu-varahalli is stopped, the work of developing the lake under the budgetary provisions of Rs. 3 crore (Rs. One crore in the budget of July 17, 2008 and Rs. 2 crore of 2009-10 budget) from the State government can be taken up by the University of Mysore, Jayaramaiah felt.

too much a demand

Slum-dwellers stage protest
TNN 30 July 2009, 11:45pm IST

MYSORE: Members of the Federation of Slum Dwellers Association took out a protest demanding independent houses. They are unhappy over the
proposed four-storey building under the slum improvement scheme funded by JNNURM. Moreover, the funds were sanctioned for a two-storey building, but the officials are now building four storeys, they said.

Former mayor Narayan said that most of the slum-dwellers, who are habitual drunkards, will prefer the ground floor, rather than taking the risk of climbing stairs. He said the officials have failed to consult people before taking up the construction. He called upon the government to form a committee to check the quality of works being undertaken under the project.

The protest which commenced at Maharaja Ground passed through Ekalavya Circle, JLB Road before culminating at the DC office where they submitted a memorandum to the deputy commissioner.

Fresh road to Brindavan Gardens

Staff Correspondent

MYSORE: A small stretch between Mysore-Krishnaraja Sagar dam road, which was in bad shape and had become a nightmare for tourists visiting the famous Brindavan Gardens, is getting a facelift.

The work on the stretch — from Aralikatte Circle to MMP Circle — on the road in Srirangapatna taluk is in progress and is expected to be completed by August-end.

Cauvery Niravari Nigama (CNN), which is the caretaker of the Brindavan gardens, is executing the work.

The stretch is being converted into a two-lane road with a median bisecting it since traffic on the stretch, especially tourist vehicles, is heavy during the weekends.

A representative of the contractor, who is executing the work, said one portion of the stretch will be thrown open to traffic in a few days as asphalting is nearing completion.

Good one. Central parks render has so many blocks. Mostly Mysore has enough land compared to Mangalore so people are going horizontal instead of going vertical.

Beautification of Hills begins
TNN 2 August 2009, 10:07pm IST

MYSORE: The district administration has launched works on beautifying the Chamundi Hills, but the elected reporesentatives are sore that they
were not consulted. The officials have now decided to take feedback from people.

After the CM's visit to the hills on July 24 where he announced the grand plans to develop it on the lines of Tirupati, the district administration began the works on Friday. Deputy commissioner P Manivannan discussed with the officials and also climbed the steps on July 26 accompanied by officials and elected representatives. The plans include resettling and levelling of 1,000 steps without damaging them, developing the path leading to Devi Kere, constructing stalls leading up to the temple and extending facilities to the devotees.

But the elected representatives are complaining of being sidelined. They were not consulted while devising or implementing the plans.

Even Opposition leader Siddaramaiah, who visited the hill shrine late on Saturday, said the works were launched without inviting MLAs. "I will speak to the DC about this. The district administration must extend proper facilities to the residents. The development plans should not affect the localities," he stated.

Meanwhile, the district administration has convened a meeting on Tuesday at 5 pm at the DC office to get feedback on its plans. The DC will attend the meeting, additional DC C G Betsurmath stated.
