Maybe... he doesn't want to be accused of working for Prince...

Maybe... he does work for Prince...

Maybe... he just doesn't like Prince...

Bit of a waste of time though, as the style is unimstakably, errr... Prince!

Thanks!. Well, to answer your question, it is because i took the pic of the car and not the store, which is a commercial establishment. I'm not advertising for anyone. Any other questions ?.I hope not and i pray my explanation satisfies your curiosity, Sir.

The new estilo looks much better than the old one. Nice pics nickatnite. Chennai is a wonderful place if not for the traffic.

Nice idea to picture one's own city as a travelogue. And sure my city Chennai looks better on those pics of yours.

I guess the best picturesque drive in chennai would be at the ECR post Uthandi and GST post Tambaram

I travelled through Chennai Last Sunday as I was travelling from Anakapalle to Trichy.As it was sunday i could traverse the city in one hour.I was impressed by the flyover near the airport it used to take 20-30mins to cross the junction but this time just 2mins to cross the place.

Nice chennai in pictures
but may not be so cool as it is when you roam around in the usual chennai traffic.
Thanks
