Air horn menace

The District Collector as Regional Transport Authority had taken all efforts to check the use of air horns by private bus operators. But, the private operators persistently continue to use them.

Hence, the judiciary should order stringent measures to put an end to this menace.

Misleading timetable

The timetable displayed at the Tiruchi junction express bus stand is misleading.

The buses are not arriving or leaving the junction as per the time written in the timetable leading to confusion among commuters. Even the timekeeper is not able to tell the correct timings of the buses. I request the authorities concerned to exhibit a new timetable with correct timings.

G. Rajesh Gopal,

Not a good sign

Mahatma Gandhi is the `Father of our nation' and our politicians though not following his path, have not misused his name so far.

But the newly cropped politician actor Vijayakanth has not hesitated to spoil the reputation of Mahatma Gandhi by declaring himself as "Living Mahatma" in a huge cut-out placed near Anna Statute area (en route to Srirangam from Chattiram bus stand).

It would be better if the district administration orders for immediate removal of the cut-out.

K. Muralidharan,

Tiruchi.

Temple maintenance

The maintenance and upkeep of Srirangam Temple leaves much to be desired. Firewood intended for the kitchen is unloaded from lorries in the open space known as Mana-Veli near Thousand Pillar Mandapam. But small pieces of firewood are not removed resulting in hardship to the devotees passing thorugh manaveli to worship Ramanujar. At Thayar Sannidhi, the path way is made very narrow by placing iron barricades. On no account devotees should be allowed to enter sannidhi via exit.

As far as possible, except very important persons, none should be allowed inside the barricade and worship.

This creates ego among them and invites hatred from others with the result both the section of devotees lack concentration in worship.

A.Sampath,

Tiruchi.
