It was Chennai Day a couple of days back.
Here is celebrating the city that has come to be my home.
From Mylapore Maamis to the cosmopolitan SW brood
From IIT to NIFT & DAV to Abacus
From Kanjeevaran saris with pockets and tubetops and multiplexes
From the stomach friendly idly to unpronouncable cuisines
From sambar to samba
From the intolerance for Hindi to the play Chanakya at Music Academy
From the much loved Rajni to the way too loud heroines
From the lack of drainage to the reverse osmosis
From The Hindu to Radio One
From grumbling about autos to zipping on ECR
From longing for chaat to Dilli Haat
From Madras to Chennai- I am here to stay!
And savour this city with all its contrast.
Though I can never stop loving Bombay there is always a lot more love to give!!
