Whaw! Whatta sound track! On listening to it, mind is blowing with the soul as well.The lyrics almost fit with my recent life and remind me all the roaming I had here. Feeling nostalgic since moving outta this superlative place for a short span. Yes. I happened to listen to the recent super hit sound track on my playlist today morning -"Vanakkam Vazhavaikkum Chennai" from the album Marina. Could any Chennaite listen to this track with no sensitivity? Never! They hardly say NO! The song is all about exact depiction of the lives of people here!
This song pinged me hard to write something about my place. Being inhabited in this MULTI-Metro city for more than seven hundred days, I am dying to describe my perspective about this heavenly place to which I owe a lot to move on.
Let me disclose some celestial stuffs packed in this Chennai city.
Whenever People think of "Chennai", the first thing that strikes their mind is "Its Hot". Yes. It is. We do agree.It is HOT. In fact, it is hotter than all those Sheelaas and Chikni Chamelis. We love to stay hot to keep moving on all the time. "Ithu Enga Chennai !! Semma HOT Machi!!"
If you are down with the syndrome of traveling, never ever think of Chennai. Because, we do traveling, we love traveling and we owe traveling. Traveling occupies the most part of our life whatever and whenever we do. We used to move faster than we live. MTCs, Metro rails, Share autos, lane to luxury taxis, airways and the list goes on when you happen to live with Chennai's travelogues. Whatever it is, it keeps you moving with at most cheer possible on earth. You may be the greatest expert in negotiating bombastic packages with your flamboyant HRs, but, nobody can do it with our Chennai Auto drivers. They always win the race! And yes, Fox History Traveler can make more episodes here!
When I say Multi-Metro, I really mean it. Yes, it is multi-faced. This place incorporates multiple multilingual people from multiple places who eat multiple cuisines and moving on with multiple dreams. This divine land always keep their kids traversing with tons of aspirations. No matter whether you are a CEO or a common man, Chennai would undoubtedly be your ladder to move up in all possible ways.The perfect place to live your dream! As the lyrics of the song goes, this chennai mother would pat you whenever you win or loose!!
People here have many untold aberrant stories and pains behind them. But still, all are kids of this ever consoling and cheering Chennai mom!

No one can ever think of denying it!
There is a popular saying that "If you happen to try a South Indian meal (Saapaadu with Vaada and Paayasam) at least once in life, objective of your birth is half done and you have lesser possibilities of reincarnation! So, NEVER miss it.

Most brainy fellow on this earth being a chess champion, Mr.Anandh is from this city. And many more sporting icons we have produced and we would keep doing :)
When you debate Rajneethi, it is a well known thing that our CM is one among those audacious feminine dictators of this country who could even shake the central Government whenever she gets bored! With love we call her "MOC" Mom of Chennai and she is Miss.Jayalalitha! No matter whether the PM or president, they are suppose to adapt whatever our mom says ;)
"Tradition" is the sticky wiki note of Indian Culture. Men and Women of Chennai add no exceptions to this saying. Yes. We are traditional too (Not all the time!). Chennai ladies can well meant for being traditionally gorgeous who can even make a stony man as drool...!

At times, we might seem thoroughly poor, but I bet we are heartily richer than you!
