New Delhi: Mysuru will be celebrating the Dasara festival from today amidst the row over Cauvery water looming in the background. With the next hearing of Supreme Court scheduled to October 6, it is likely that the revelry will be affected.

The Dasara celebrations will be held for 11 days by the royals as per the calculations done by the priest. The festival will be inaugurated by writer Channaveera Kanavi on the Chamundi Hills on Saturday. Karanataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will be attending the ceremony but is unlikely to stay back due to the crisis.

The Karnataka government had initially planned to celebrate the festival with grandiose. But due to the drought crisis which has seen intense protests and has emerged as a national emergency threatening crops of the farmers, the festival is expected to be affected in some ways or the other.
