Happy Birthday, you have given me a great time
Yesterday, my city turned 368. A sleepy fishing hamlet called Madraspatnam once upon a time, is now a thriving metropolis called Chennai. Some may raise their eyebrows when i say thriving, but the city is no longer the orthodox and conservative place it once was. Today, Chennai is easily one of the better Indian cities to live in, with a great balance of traditional and modern lifestyle.
I am new to Chennai, a resident of only two years and its been the best two years of my life. Theres much to explore, much to see, much to experience, its a treat for your senses, the coffee, the beach, the jasmine, the autorickshaws, central station, the temples, classical music…
If you cant be here to live the Chennai life, the least you can do is enjoy its sights. I leave you with this wonderful gallery of photos from Chennai that was once Madras. This is my city.
