Chennai Pattanam…

So I am  officialy a Chennaite now.Second Metro city in my  life, first being Mumbai (5 years) and then good 7 years in Bangalore.  Chennai special Dosas, Idli, chutnies,  yummy thick coffee has slowly started getting attached to my life. Although my shifting from Bangalore to Chennai was not at an apt time ,with persistent rain, water logging, boat services, powerless nights. But slowly things are coming to normal ( but clouds still hovering around) and i have started to love this city. Water in the potholes have got drained , so now you need not use your intellect to drive through the Chennai roads. The current climate is like that of Bangalore and therefore not feeling much of a difference. Slowly the temperature will pick up and then sweat sweat . An immediate benefit I saw was for movies. Ticket prize here only is 150 ( inclusive of the internet booking charges) and showcases new Malayalam releases as well. Already saw couple of movies.

Yet to explore the city and hope to post all my experiences in this great city in my blog.

This was how my neighboring looked in the heavy rain.
