Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda said that the state government is focused on the development of Mysore and promotion of tourism and culture in the region.
Speaking at the inauguration of Mysore Dasara 2011 here atop Chamundi Hills on Wednesday, Gowda said that over centuries Dasara has evolved into an attractive global event with regard to its practices, tradition and art and culture.

He said that rural Dasara and folklore troupes’ performance combined with similar programmes has turned out to be successful in attracting public participation.Gowda stressed that there is no dearth of funds for the Dasara festivities as his predecessor B S Yeddyurappa had declared it a nadahabba, setting aside all fears that Dasara would be a low-key affair.The Chief Minister also said that Dasara must be celebrated in all thirty districts as it was done in Mysore, Madikeri and Mangalore.

As Dasara is a festival that celebrates� victory over evil, Gowda said that the people of Karnataka are doing the right thing by taking the side of justice and thus, scoring over the bad. He also prayed for better rains and peace and prosperity across the state.The Chief Minister said that strength and knowledge should spread across all boundaries for a better society and appealed to his people to light lamps so as to come out of darkness and spread knowledge and cultural traditions.

As a prelude to grandeur Dasara procession in cultural capital Mysore on the day of Vijayadashami, which falls on October 5, tourists may witness a Dasara procession in Srirangapatna on September 30.

District administration has geared up to hold Dasara celebrations in Sriranapatna in very grandeur way, unlike previous years. The main attraction of this year’s celebration is the procession of Goddess Sri Chamundeswari idol, which is placed on a mantap that’s mounted on an elephant.

Unlike the Dasara procession in Mysore which starts from the palace and ends at Bannimantap, the march in Srirangapatna will start from Bannimantap and culminated at Sri Ranganatha Temple ground. If the Dasara procession in Mysore will be held on the day of Vijayadashami, in Sriranagapatna it will be held five days prior to Vijayadashami.

“The government has released Rs 50 lakh for the 5-day-long Dasara fest. District administration has invited Jnanapit awardee Chandrashekar Kambar to inaugurate the procession. Besides, Jambu Savari, dance groups, music bands, decorated animals and other cultural troupes form a part of procession,” assistant commissioner G Prabu said.

“By the experience we gained in past three years, we have decided to hold Dasara festivities in very grandeur manner this year. Festivities will be flagged off on September 3 at a Bannimantap near Kirangur gate on Mysore-Bangalore Highway,” he said.

According to s, Dasara festivities which was started by Vijayanagar kings in 15th century, Mysore Wodeyar continued celebrating the festival even after the fall of Vijayanagar dynasty. Dasara procession was first started in Srirangapatna during the reign of Raja Wodeyar (1578-1617).

However, when Mysore became the capital of Wodeyar kings, Dasara festivities were shifted from Srirangapatna town.

“To revive the yesteryear legacy of Sriranagapatna, state government has been organizing Dasara events in this fort town every year since 2009. Dasara in Srirangapatna does not mean it’s competing with Mysore’s Dasara,” an officer said.
