A different perspective!!!

October 29, 2008

           Last Saturday I went to T.nagar(Chennai) to purchase some clothes for me on the eve of Diwali. But I liked that experience don’t know why…. maybe I made up mind to stay there till 10.P.M. to see what’s happening out there. Here I am go to attach some pictures too. An article on T.nagar without picture will be a boring thing.

           I am along with so many people started to enter into Ranganathan street by 7.30. You may call it as a people ocean as it can’t be categorized as a crowd.        

            I liked to purchase in Pothys(a bad idea) so I have to go(crawl) through this whole street. When I reached the Usman road I am able to see the newly inaugrated bridge to make the traffic easier. With the bridge was constructed the number of roadside vendors were increased with many of them taking the space under the bridge. And with this bridge some amount of parking problem also solved.


        When I entered into Pothy’s it has been 8.P.M( did I walked that much slow?). After going through many, got something of my liking and when I started to come out the time is 10.15. But to give shock to me some people are entering into the shop at that time only. So Now I was hungry. Surely got to eat something. By luck, I found a roadside eatery(this is what I wanted) which was being run on a cart came to my rescue. It has been many,many days I had eaten in that kinda shop. So without wasting much time by recollecting golden memories, ordered some parathas and omlettes and finished a satisfied dinner.

     Now I started to walk to railway station through Ranganathan street where I was happened to see many of the workers were packing the waste papers thrown down in the shops.



 And within that small street some vans equal to the width of that street came with the stocks for next day business.

       And I finished of my small trip to T.nagar with the below snap before getting to the staircase of the railway station.

          I hope this will be a different kind of experience about T.Nagar for you all. I enjoyed it much.

    Thanks for coming by.. keep visiting.
    Yeah its one of the major festival in India. Festival of lights is what we call it as. Lot of crackers will be burned and lot of sweets to eat..a true festival of joy indeed.

    Not everytime I love the crowd.. some rare ocassions like this one.. I made my mind to enjoy it. Laad bazaar.. I will visit it when I get a chance to go to hydrebad 🙂

    You were in Ranganathan Street on the eve of Deepavali? 😯 There would have been very little space to even breathe 🙂

    Yes, the two new flyovers are a real boon! You can now go to Loyola College from T. Nagar Bus Stand in about five minutes! It used to take about twenty-five minutes earlier during peak-hours. The two flyovers are a contrast. The new one (in your picture) is long and has a gentle gradient while the other one is short and quite steep.

    Ah, food from a kayyendhi bhavan (Chennai slang for a push-cart eatery) 🙂 You bring back old memories, man. Reminds me of the days when we used to literally take over the kayyendhi bhavan outside our office. Food in the air-conditioned cafeteria became so boring and repetitive but the piping hot parottas, dosais and omelettes served under the moon and the stars never failed to disappoint!

    Really i expected a lot in this post… Its too simple and really disappointing expect some photos…

    kanagu: Even I am not much satisfied with the post but I thought the things that I mentioned which were happening after the shops are closed will be new.
