Will IT kill Mysore?

It’s a question nobody wants to ask. And it’s question few want to answer.

But ask we must: will IT do to namma Mysore what it has so magnificently done to Bangalore?

Bhamy V. Shenoy does precisely that for churumuri (click on the page to the right).

By putting all our eggs in the IT basket, by thrusting all our best and brightest into IT, by giving them ridiculous salaries, are we, asks Dr Shenoy, planting the virus of Dutch Disease on the banks of the Cauvery?

These are uncomfortable questions, but somebody’s gotta ask them. Join the debate.
