This is a place called Kuvanmedu. It used to be a quarry before and now its like a crater in a Hill. It is around the southern suburb of Chennai.

One of the less known places. Note the two bikes far away.

Not sure, but is this one of the places the Jeepers (Arka and gang) go offroading ? That location also has quarries and craters filled with water.

I believe this place is off the Vandalur to Kelambakkam State highway. I have been to numerous similar quarries off that road during my college days.

You spoke too soon, man. I don't see that post on the Serbian thread anymore. It did feel like a "Eh tu, Brutus" moment, but I let it pass.

Anyway, like it is said in the Geetha (Gita), whatever happens, is for the good. And the post is alive on my blog, where I am the contributor and the moderator. And guess what, if not for the post being deleted here, I would have missed some serious opportunities elsewhere. So, all's well that ends well.

This does not have that much space for off-roading. It will not be a bad place for photo shoot.

This comes on the other side. Branches off the GST road from a place called Singaperumal Koil.

NeoRanjit, I heard that Paramesh (Para_7K) is good with the camera.

Sorry paramesh I am nominating you as a volunteer here.

Paramesh I think its high time we put our plan for the photoshoot in action. I think we have some takers here . Hey is this old quarry located on the singaperumal Kovil to Sriperambattur route? I have been there once.
