India: A city named Madras (or Chennai)

Categories: South Asia, India, Arts & Culture, Citizen Media

DesiGirl at My Word! [1] muses on Madras (now Chennai), on how the city has room for the new and the old with its own unique charm. “The old and the new have meshed together so well that one barely leaves a dent on another. The Geetha cafes and Saravana Bhavan clientele still continue going about their daily toils, the latest opening of Baristas notwithstanding.”
