Saravana Bhavan, The Hindu, Kaapi. Yeah, I know that much! Why no mention of the beaches? Just curious...

In Bangalore, Times of India outsells The Hindu. I think that tells things.

Creamy Inn in Annanagar? That's the first I've heard of that! Of course it's been some months since I visited Madras and everytime I come back Annanagar is like a little city of its own. Go Annanager... (most of my friends lived in happening Nungambakkam and made much fun of me growing up in far away Annanagar)

OK. Now do one for Chicago. : )

No self respecting person born before (insert suitable date here) will use the abomination "Chennai".

Of course, there are others who won't consider random offshoots like "Anna Nagar" even a part of Madras. It isn't even close to a beach for god's sake.

'Do one for Chicago' - now there's an excellent suggestion. Why do I have this feeling that a certain Irish pub on 100 W Grand Ave will feature prominently on that list..?

oh and I just read wahgnube's post about Annanagar. whoa, tread with caution amigo.. you are walking on thin ice here with atleast three A-Nagar residents carefully following the proceedings!

There is a reason why I don a pseudonym before inciting general violence.

Muahahahaha hah ah hah.
