Mysore acceded to the Indian Union nearly two months after Independence and it was only on 12 October that Maharaja Jayachamaraja Wadeyar signed away the prerogatives of the princely house of Mysore. This chapter begins by examining the years in which the political system of former princely Mysore was integrated with the polity of independent India. Dealing with the decade or so after the linguistic reorganization of the states, it gives readers a clearer sense of the political climate prevailing within the milieu.

Keywords: Mysore; independence; linguistic reorganization; political system; India; political climate
