Story of a border…

Leave a comment


It was in the early nineties I knew the word Border. The first border I know was border between India & Pakistan & the later is Tamilnadu & Karnataka. Every since I attended a family function, our family friends at Chennai, Mannargudi, Thanjavur, Kumbakonam, Mayiladuthurai would refer my place as ‘Yes, I know about TVS company there, it’s famous across country’, ‘Ah! Hosur, Yes my cousin works in Ashok Leyland there’ & they would recall all company name they read in newspaper.

At any function any elders who ask me to get some water to them will not forget to add this ‘Karnataka doesn’t give water to us, at least you get me some water’; as if I’m from Karnataka & we’re getting water from them. They forget that Hosur falls under Tamilnadu & it’s the border of Tamilnadu. We’ve not even seen Cauvery water stream but a lot of riots due to the cauvery water!

‘Karnataka doesn’t give water to us, at least you get me some water’; as if I’m from Karnataka & we’re getting water from them.

Most of the people at Bangalore except some political parties doesn’t know that Hosur is part of Tamilnadu, as Hosur road is a 41 kms stretch in Bangalore, people have an assumption that Hosur is in Bangalore. Even a born & brought up person in Bangalore doesn’t know that Hosur is outside KA, as they have much general knowledge they don’t care where this place is.

When it comes to cauvery water issue every time, even when court orders to give water to TN, first task for some political parties in karnataka is to break Tamilnadu buses glasses to show their agitation, burn tyres at the attipalli (Karnataka border), Stop buses entering from Tamilnadu & there by stopping thousands of commuters who travel for college & to work daily. Buses will stop at Hosur border; Zuzuwadi and people would walk to attipalli (1.5 – 2 kms) to board bus from KA. Until the water row comes to an end every time, this would be the routine for people in Hosur.

Now comes the chance to every party in KA to show their affection they have towards KA people by conducting Bandh individually, provided if media covers them neatly, else you can hardly find affectionate people there. Thereby stopping the screening of any tamil movies, but Tamil remake movies in Kannada will be screened, Tamil songs remade in Kannada will be played in FM throughout the day; remember not to question all these, else keep a first-aid box ready with you.

Thanks: Cartoonist Bala.

Though the people of Karnataka are good at heart like anyone else, it if some political party who creates this agitation among-st them. Remember everyone needs water at the end & abiding to law gives you additional respect. When bandh comes on weekend people who travel to Tamilnadu on weekend will have a boring weekend on the paralyzed Bangalore.
