Concerted Torture-16Oct2007

Sir,
We about 100,000 residents in and around Kamalammanagundi play ground area have been subjected to criminal torture
and disruption of peaceful residential life we are entitled to, under the guise of religious, language or cultural pretexts by one organisation or the other holding very loud, bright noisy "festivals, functions, meets" etc.
All these involve the use of very very loud speakers at all hours, dreadful music, road blocks by buntings, pandals, welcome arches, traffic jams, etc. The nights are turned into day by solar lights, strobe lights, LCD diplays and 10000 watts speakers blasting away the SUPREME COURT MANDATED LIMIT of 45-65 db noise levels for residential areas.
The crowds that gather to listen to dreadful loud film music are rowdy, boisterous and many are drunk.
we draw your atention to the retired brigadier beaten up in mumbai by drunk youths returning from Ganesha Festival.
This is not a civilized or cultured way of promoting religion,culture or language.
We are enclosing two instances in a period of 10 days or so we were subjected to untold horrors by authorities permitting and tolerating civic law violations-Noise,road blockage wasting precious fuel, air pollution by fire crackers, law and order problems by rowdy elements sure to be in these groups, eve teasing, traffic disruption, power theft, damage and defacement of public roads and properties by such self styled groups.
Ganesha festival(15 sep 07 ) indeed when Dasara has already started.
The authorities are to be totally blamed more if they fund any of these functions-including "RAJYOTSAVA DAY" functions, just around the corner, with our tax money to be wasted and provide profound torture for days.
All of us complaining about these are born Kannadigas, we do not like the extortion these groups practise collecting funds from non kannadigas businesses.

Therefore we demand that you issue strict instructions to the relevant authorities like POLICE, CORPORATION, BESCOM
not to permit such pandals functions anywhere and everywhere holding lakhs of peaceful and quiet citizens to ransom like this now during festival times and later on during the coming up Rajyotsava day which goes on for months.
Even if they permit they should ensure civic and criminal violations do not take place.
Also appropriately take action against the following two organisations -1) Dharmik youth association which totally blocked 11 cross mahalakshmi lay out at a busy T junction (maps pictures and video attached) 28-30 sep 2007
and 2) Nisarga association which overstepped all limits of decency, civilization and culture and made life hell for almost 100000 people over 3 days -12th 13th and 14th , october 2007, during Dasara for "GANESHA FESTIVAL".
Their funding also needs to be probed as they used very expensive LCD displays,10000 watts amplifiers, double orchestras, dug up 2,3 main for arches, blocking almost 25 percent of the narrow busy 30 foot roads, lit up entire 1,2 and 3 main with STOLEN(?) power, etc.
They need to be severely penalized for making life hell for the area residents.
Enforcement Authorities like Police, corporation and BESCOM-whose power was stolen most likely as seen from the picture of lights strung from BESCOM Poles.
Hoping that you will act in time to prevent such happenings in future, especially during "RAJYOTSAVA" which is more a political show of strength than any genuine love for the state.
WE REQUEST THAT YOU LISTEN TO THE VIDEO WITH FULL VOLUME ON SPEAKERS SO YOU CAN APPRECIATE THE TORTURE WE WERE SUBJECTED TO
Sincerely yours
ONE LAKH AFFECTED RESIDENTS
MAHALAKSHMI LAY OUT.
