Mysoreans are a long way from real democracy

BHAMY V. SHENOY writes from Houston, Texas: “Readers of churumuri may be interested to read the letters that are being sent by NRIs to their Congressmen requesting them to support President’s pact with India on Nuclear Energy. It is impressive to see how thousands of NRIs are taking their civic responsibilities seriously.

“What will Mysoreans do under a similar scenario” asks Dr Shenoy? “99% of Mysoreans are suffering because of water shortage and quality problems. Again this year despite having plenty of water at K R S, Mysoreans will be supplied water once in two days. It is only a handful who have complained to their representatives.

“Those who have written letters can be counted on finger tips. Indeed we have a long way to go before we learn real democracy.”
