There’s a new epidemic called Road Widening

ARUN PADAKI writes: Just as Mysore begins to unwind after nine hectic days and nights, a shocker from the Mysore City Corporation. Two hundred and one, yes 201, trees on some of the best avenues of Mysore will go chop, chop, chop if MCC has its way.

Official reason? Road widening.

Unofficial reason? You work it out.

The quaint avenue trees on Vani Vilasa Road leading upto the law courts with coloured lamps on the trees, pictured during the Dasara a week ago, will be a thing of the past.
