I have been to many parts/cities in india.All the metros, the village that desparately wants to grow up called bangalore, so many places.No where have i felt comfortable as i felt when i was in Madras.If there is one place i can call home it is that.I do remember scoffing at an article that appeared way back in 1995 saying that madrasis have the maximum homing instinct meaning they want to come back to madras at the end of the day whereever they
So true, so very true.
If there is one place on earth that i can call as home, it can be only madras and nothing else !
So on the ocassion of the birthday of my motherland, here are some pics which i took.
Some shots of the marina beach at sunrise
A view of the mount road.This road IMHO kicks some serious ass and is probably the most disciplined road down south.Neatly moving traffic arranged in lanes, well synchronized signals and what not !
This is an intresting article by the historian of madras S.Muthiah.
This is the official "celebrations" site.
Vatsan has a cool write up with some intresting facts about my motherland ! Sorry madame, i've been away from you for 8 years now. But then again i know you would accord a glorious welcome to your son when he comes back for good in a short while from now !
