Wow.. NORM ORNSTEIN got it bang on right way back in Aug.
All the precedents augur against Donald Trump's success—but perhaps the old rules no longer apply.

Good thing about Trump victory is that it has exposed the fake ideological superiority of USA.. .

Atleast now US should stop preaching other countries in matters religious freedom etc

Republican race has ended, but Bernie is still in the race.

During his candidacy announcement speech, one reporter actually asked whether he is contesting to win or just to put out his ideas. Amazing leadership.

Lot of times the more famous taxi services cancel the order at the last moment, especially when the destination is railway station, since they prefer airport services. Never had a problem with JK though... Once they saved our trip, since they are the only ones willing... May be because they are closer to our home, not sure... Have been booking JK since over a year now. Never had a problem

In the age where we are lost behind the digital screens, is it a good idea to have a one more screen in the restaurant!!! Going out with family and friends gives an opportunity to come out of our digital lives and this place does not help with that :-).... Anyways, the touch table concept is good and the probably the place is worth visiting once... The food is good, but not something extra-ordinary. The service was very slow and that killed the excitement. Coming to touch screen, did not find it very responsive. There are games for kids, but since the screen is at the table center its not very convenient access to them. The humor section has adult jokes; need to be careful if with kids. Even though one can order through the touch screen, the waiter comes immediately to confirm the order, which is good, since it avoids accidental orders

If one can get a balcony table overseeing the MG road, with good weather and friends, this place is wonderful. The food and service quality are excellent. Always had buffet here.

Although not very big, its worth a good visit, especially with kids. The toy train ride is excellent (But needs minimum of 10 to gather). The highlight is the "Maharani Saloon", the private coach of Maharani of Mysore. Not many people visit here, hence not crowed, a welcome break from rest of the main attractions at Mysore

Even though there was so much crowd, everything went so smoothly. The authorities have taken great care to make it tourist friendly. Everything feels well thought through. Note that cameras are allowed inside the compound (first entry after the tickets), but not allowed inside the main building (there is a free camera locker facility). The audio kit is a must buy. It costs only 100, but there are few takers, owing to the steep deposit of 2000 Rs. The audio guide makes one really appreciate the palace and the things at display. Also should highlight that the palace upkeep is spot on. I could not find a single corner with dust accumulated. Mysore palace was truly a wonderful experience.

Good place for a quick weekend get-away for Bangaloreans. We started post lunch and due to excellent roads reached quickly. Vehicles will go inside the fort, but tickets needs to be purchased. Once inside, immediately there is Tippu's summer palace to the left and a lake to the front. Both are not worth visiting. We then drove all the way to the top. From there we covered everything via walk. Only places worth seeing are the ancient Nandishwar temple (and the small lake behind it), Nandi statue, and tippu fall. Rest of the places are not worth it. While coming back, we took a detour and visited the Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple, situated close to the foot hills. The temple carvings are brilliant, touching the standards of Hampi and Belur/Halebedu. Its a must visit.

We stayed here for three days during our trip to Mysore. Our experience has been mixed. The room and restaurant quality are great, but service standards needs improvement. For the price (discounted after negotiation), the room is value for money including locker, balcony, individual A/c. The room size was small (we took the lowest category) although very clean. The shower was too good, with super rain effect, but water could have been hotter. There was bucket but no mug. There were couple of service calls missed. But the staff goes out of the way to help once they meet face to face. Free wifi barely worked. Can consider it as not present at all. The in-house restaurant Ambari is really a highlight. We had dinner there every day, but did not get bored of it. The complementary breakfast was also very good. I would recommend this hotel, since overall we were happy with the stay.
