At a public park on the road where Shastri Bhavan is located. I think it is Haddows Road, near College Road.

Today's picture post covers Ritchie Street, where one can find all the electronic items and accessories one can buy at prices half what one would pay in a mainstream store and some, the area around that street in Anna Salai, Beach Road and a little bit of Adyar.

CHENNAI is slowly turining into my favourite city.

Though I live in Bangalore, i'm falling in love with Chennai

The main attraction for me is the beach, imagine, you have a place that does not charge you a ticket to go out to. It an awesome feeling, looking into the vastness of the ocean and feeling its power at your feet.

Used to feel like settling down in Bombay, now guess i'll plonk for Chennai
