‘Hi, I’m Deepak Thimaya, and I invite you to…’

Deepak Thimaya, the man behind ‘Mysooru Utsava’—the “Fun for all, Mass entertainment, Unique variety artistic presentation,” as the ads shout—to be held from July 26-29, talks of the reasoning and rationale behind having an extravaganza so close to Dasara.

Thimaya, who hosts a popular interview-based programme on Udaya Television, also invites churumuri readers across the world to put on their thinking caps, and proactively contribute ideas and suggestions on how the four-day Utsava could be made even better.
