This refers to K.B. Ganapathy’s Abracadabra titled “Let us be vocal about local problems faced by Mysureans” in Star of Mysore dated May 24, 2023. Excellent write-up on so many major local issues that afflict our city.
I went to Lalitha Mahal Palace Hotel a few months ago, when some friends from the US had come and it was an embarrassing experience. The menu card was a laminated sheet of single page similar to what we get in a roadside dhaba.
And just getting a pot of coffee took nearly an hour. The service was terrible and as you rightly said, it is well on its way to decline and demise. It needs to be urgently handed over to a reputed hotel group.
Metropole hotel has only recently improved. Earlier when we had gone there for lunch with Pramoda Devi Wadiyar, we saw cockroaches running amok on the dining table.
And, of course, the most important point you have raised is about Solid Waste Management. That is a major health hazard for the city and the residents of Vidyaranyapuram. KBG Sir, you are truly emerging as the vox populi.
