I want my name in voters list but....
Posted on 3/19/2009
There is a wave of awareness amongst the citizens to go and vote but Election Commission has said those without voters ID card they will not be allowed to vote. This may be in the right direction. But the process of obtaining an ID card continues to be an onerous and painful task; many valuable working hours have to be spent in Qs at the facilitation centers but are these centers citizen friendly? It appears doubtful.
Hundreds of citizens were running in circles at the Bannimantap and other facilitation centers since the processes involved were not as easy as trumpeted by the election officials. AND THERE WERE MIDDLE MEN..
The photo shows a few of the middlemen sitting right in front of Bannimantap center and making hay while the sun shined. Gullible people were being charged anywhere between Rs.10 and Rs.20 to fill up the prescribed forms 6, 7 etc., and other charges for getting photographed etc.,were totally confusing.
These things were going on under the very nose of election officials present at the center.
It was a pathetic scene since there were no realistic directions to citizens by the officials other than a few handwritten names of areas and a few of them wading through the old electoral list and they themselves were not able to answer to various questions of the milling crowd.
It will not be a wonder if people get disgusted and say 'to hell with elections'.
It is better for the Election Office to evolve simple processes for the illerate and literate citizens who are enthusiastic to exercise their franchise without so much of confusion and swindling. Also allow citizens to vote this time with the old method of producing identity proof the booth level.

Dear friends, Thanks for the comments. We do not mind going and watching a cricket match for hours together. If the match is T20 and if the teams are good spending so much of time in watching may be OOOK because it gives the thrills but if the match is a test match spread over 5 days, it will be boring and a sort of Tick20. Similarly, if we want a photo ID, it will be necessary for us to have a little patience and following up till we get what we want. With our system's sluggish work ethic, we cannot expect everything to move according to our needs. We are saddled with such callousness. For those who want answers on how to get your name included in the electoral rolls, please browse the following website: We must be responsible citizens for creating majority voters rule and should not allow the wicked politicians to manage to vote with minority voters voting pattern.

Whats on in Mysore
Dr. Saleem Magic
Posted by : Syed Qadeer on 9/4/2013
It was very impressive to see that Dr Saleem magic in the city with Helmet checking and enforcing the citizens to abide traffic rules and safety measures.

But i wonder if Dr. Saleem has thought about these below BASIC requirements...

1. Proper Road Markings (majority of roads does not have any lane marking)
2. Barricades between the 2 lanes (to enforce walkers to use Zebra crossing)
3. Barricades for footpath (to seperate paths)
4. Advance warning signage for motorists for pathways, work-zone and motorists)
5. Sufficient and suitable signage
6. Work Zone separation from passing traffic

Looking forward to see Dr. Saleem's magic for the above basic traffic management actions....
