'Health Guards to build healthy nation

Medical education and district in-charge minister S A Ramdas on Wednesday announced to groom ‘health guards’ to implement changes in the society.

Speaking after unfurling the tri-colour as part of 66th independence day celebrations at Chamundi Vihar stadium in the city, the minister said that five youth irrespective of men and women will be roped in as health guards from every villages in the district.

Building a healthy India should the motto of all and the very initiative will inspire the youth, coinciding with the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.

Claiming that Karnataka is the only State in the nation to make rural services mandatory for doctors, the minister said, if all goes well they may render services in the far away Jammu and Kashmir State.

As the doctors in the trouble hit State are reluctant to work in the rural areas for the fear of terrorists, the Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare Gulam Nabi Azad has requested the  Karnataka State Government for doctors and other medical staff.

Keeping in view the long pending demand for sites, a total of four layouts- Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar Nagar, Swarna Jayanti Nagar, Lalithadri Nagar, second stage and Shantaveri Gopalgowda Nagar second stage are ready and sites will be distributed  soon.

Green cover in the city will be enhanced further with a plan on the anvil.  A total of 389  parks in the city will be developed and maintained in association with Mysore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI).  Five freedom fighters were honoured.

They were- K S Shivanna of Nanjangud, B S Thotappa of Basaralu, Krishnappa of Chittanahalli in Pandavapura taluk, C Doddegowda of Gundlupet and M D Rajendra Kumar Jain.

A certificate of housing was distributed to a specially-abled boy as a part of the ambitious ‘Swanta Oorina Sooru Mysooru’ (Mysore city of own roof), for the families living in rented places.

Another ambitious venture- Auto Repair Nagar was also launched with the distribution of applications for the garage owners. As the year 2012 also marks the 150 years of local body, it will be celebrated as Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar Year.

Mockery of Nada Geethe

Even as a group of students performed a dance drama- Nada Geethe, most of the audience preferred to sit. The bureaucrats who form district committee for the celebration of national festivals were no exception. 

Deputy commissioner P S Vastrad who incidentally is also the chairman of the committee, police commissioner K L Sudheer, MCC commissioner M R Ravi, DCPs Basavaraj Malagaththi and K P Bheemaiah sat in oblivion while the scribes seated in the dedicated wing, rose in respect. 

Strangely, the organisers too didn’t ask the audience to rise in respect prior to the playing of recorded song (Nada Geethe). It may be the reason why others too forgot.

There was also a debate- like national anthem for country, Nada Geethe is the State anthem and the concept on the same shouldn’t have been permitted, forget rising in honour.Earlier, when the Nada Geethe was rendered as a custom, all had stood in respect of the same.

Jain youth play host

Sri Sumathinath Jain Navyuvak Mandal, Mysore played a perfect host organising breakfast and sweets for nearly 5,000 people who had gathered at the stadium.

A release from the president of the mandal Jain Praveen Lunkar stated that  they have been rendering services without eyeing any profit, but for the cause of a better society, since the inception of the organisation in the year 1972.

Mayor M C Rajeshwari, MLA Tanveer Sait, deputy commissioner P S Vastrad, police commissioner K L Sudheer, SP R Dileep, commissioner of MCC M R Ravi, DCPs Basavaraj Malagaththi (law and order) and K P Bheemaiah (Crime and traffic) and others were present.
