My city’s B’day

It took sunbath on mid-day
the clouds to dressed in whites,
in tamil tradition of wearing dhoti
everywhere covered in wets
thunders like crackers blow on festival
news carries greetings
with some remembers of old memories
as we celebrating the 368th B’day
of madraspatnam the Singara Chennai.



Chennai is celebrating “The Chennai week” to contribute the 368th years of its discovery on August 22. The picture on the right was presented in an exhibition recently where it was took late between 1877-78 when famine strikes the Chennai residents, where a pity scene of a family in hunger.








# Current song was a cute and my most favorite. Santhippoma… from Tamil film Enakku 20 Unakku 18 that covers Chennai.

Jeevan...Happy Chennai Week....

Nice post Jeevan. Excellent words. Comparison song is very nice. Now onwards, when i hear that song, i will remember you (Dont think now i will forget you).

I too agree with Priya and Alok.

Alok,

Ya...it happens all around the world. Chennai... very modern metropolitan city. I accept that too... but what about poverty? I think, now by God's grace we dont worry about famine. Still, iam seeing child beggers, who beg for the elders not only in chennai, but in other places too. I dont hate Chennai. But, we have to consider negative things too...
