Viva Velachery

Reliance is opening a retail outlet in Velachery, walking distance from home.
Bang opposite is a Retail Management Institute. Some coincidence this!
The Nilgiris, next door to me, is not at all worried about the competetion.
I say, more the merrier for me as a consumer.

Most of the regulars here know that I am a keen announcer of any developments in my locality- Velachery

We will shortly have:
Karaikudi- a Chettinadu restaurant- not to my taste but a lot of my non veg colleagues swear by it
Chat.com- a small joint on the taramani road
Style Spa- the ex- Gautier outlet
Naihaa- to join the already inaugurated but not very well stocked Naidu Hall

Is someone listening out there??

There is still ample room for Subway, the movie multiplex and rotiwali bai.

Now I know :)
But always wonder whether more development does mean more, I look at bangalore what it was before and what its changing to I mean in terms of rampant development; another concrete jungle; adieus to the old ways!! Is it? Because when a city changes so does the people expecially on the lower ladder.

vote for Sarath to make chennai a coolest place to live in.
Sarath is one of the best student from IIM and now his one of the best entrepreneurs.....He is now in the election tray we can make him win
A typical case of rags to riches story, an IIM-A graduate and a successful entrepreneur has taken a plunge into politics by contesting the Lok Sabha polls, with an aim to clear the "silt" of it.
Sarath Babu, the proprietor of Food King that has business spread over four states, is an independent candidate from the elite South Chennai constituency and has a vision for his country -- 'a hunger-free India by another 20 years' where 'unemployment will be non-existent'.
For more information on his campigns please refer to
