1 min read

Mysuru: Mallikarjuna Swamy popularly known as ‘Mess Mallanna’ passed away on Wednesday. He was 77.

Mallanna who was once running a provision store opposite Andolana bus stop on Ramanuja road eighth cross, was a popular man in the locality.

He was also running a vegetarian mess (canteen) at his home on Ramanuja road eighth cross.

In the recent years, as the business dwindled Mallanna winded up his provision store and stick on to his canteen.

More than the tasty food what endeared Mallanna to the customers was his ‘order’ not even to leave a grain of rice on plate. He was ready to serve again and again, but with the afore said caution.

There may not be any in the locality, especially the outside students staying in rented rooms and bachelors who haven’t tasted food at his canteen.

That’s how he earned the good will of his customers who became regular to his eatery.

As the news of his death spread, people came out in large numbers to pay their last respects. 

He leaves behind his wife, daughter and a large number of relatives and friends.
