#Bindhu on Mar 28, 2016 :
Too costly and unfriendly place. Crime rate is high. Low paying salaries. Waste of life.
#Nasmi on Dec 22, 2015 :
Dont plan for mysore.. chain snatching, murder, kidnapping is more.. see youtube recent video for chain snathcing.. horrible place.. no safety..
#Yashodha on Dec 29, 2014 :
If you are planning to settled or whatever think twice because every time, you should be alert.In particularly purchasing land, apartment, house or rent houses.Otherwise you will loss your money.And one more thing before going to rented house discuss with your house owner about your agreement, don't give how much they asked.SEARCH, BARGAIN, don't do urgent, and don't listen anybody's openings.

I was living in Chennai for ages and moved to my native place Mysore. Each place has its own advantages and disadvantages. If you are an youngster and want to pursue your career goals in a private sector, my opinion is that you should stay away from Mysore as it has opportunities in Service, banking and government services.
Places like Chennai followed by Bangalore would be better places for youngsters as it provides more career opportunities.
Mysore is a clean city with lot of parks and behaviour of people is in the acceptable levels.
Cost of living is almost as close to Chennai. Chennai is well connected for moving around.

Hey Kopafeel Butt, who are you a%$h*le? Go back where you come from. I suppose you did not take your meds eh! You could have gone to soup line in place of going to a restaurant. Beggars like you belong to soup lines.

I Love to live in Mysore and my plan for my retirement life is obviously at Mysore!!!!!!
#Kopafeel Butt on Mar 04, 2014 :
Mysore was very expensive, i took the taxi from the station and he charged me $100 to go for the 2 miles only,i ate in a restaurant and the meal cost $50, i asked the waiter if it was made out of gold dust.Also there are too many Indians in Mysore,i would like to see more Chinese and Nigerians.Mysore is as its name implies a large puss filled sore that needs suturing.I love you long time Mywhore.
#Amarnath on Dec 21, 2013 :
Yes I too was attracted to Mysore , and went there and stayed for 10 days and checked the life
before making a final move there. Its costlier now and I agree and find karthick views are 100% correct.It isnt worth that what every one says there ... And many who have settled for 40 to 50 years have started selling their houses and moving to Bangalore
