Old habits Die Hard!!

Bangalore: Power outages and an acute water shortage which are normal routine of bangaloreans these days, have pushing furious citizens to vent their emotions on water board staff. Barely a day after BSSSC inspector Shankar Rao was beaten up by residents of Vidyaranyapura (loose translation, knowledge of jungle area) , residents of Shanthinagar (Heavenly silence) area have threatened field inspectors of BSSSC with dire consequences, if the regular water supply was restored.

On Friday, BSSSC employees protested in front of the Resident Forest officer of Vidyaranyapura and demanded protection from the Vanar sena this summer.

Rudrappa (translation= father of Lord Siva), president, BSSSC Employees’ Association, said it was not the first time an inspector was severely beaten up. “Earlier, BSSSC field staff were manhandled at "several places". We repeatedly appealed to residents to approach higher officials, if there was a problem with field staff. Since "several places" are facing a same problem, we’ve asked Govt to consider mass transfer of all employees to mythical Dandakaranya area,” he said.

when jaggu asked the Rudrappa, for more information abt Dandakaranya, pat the reply came "The Dandakaranya area was the location of the turning point in the Ramayana, The plot for the divine objectives of the Hindu Trinity to uproot the "rakshasas" from the land was formulated here."

Rudrappa further added
"According to the Ramayana, Dandakaranya was home to many deadly creatures and demons. now these are outside the Dandakaranya area. Earlier, Exiled persons resided here, like Shree Rama, his wife Sita and his brother Lakshmana spent 13 years as exiles traveling around the region." and he added "When Shree Ram (bolo jai Shree Raam) and Maate Sita deviji can spend their 13 years peacefully there,why cant we?"
