This post is a part of The Chennai Bloggers Club Tablog , Where the active Chennai circle bloggers have decided to write about "What Chennai Means to them" in their own styles. .The post was preceeded by a group of writes before me, the last one to write and pass the baton to me was Melanie Rayen . . Thank you. . .
Sipping my hot mug of Filter coffee,
I decided to write what Chennai means to me. .
Going by the pages of history ,
A common place for the socials
I then decided to write taste,
What this Metro city has in its haste.

Its been 2 decades since my Birth at this wonderful place and along side me I have seen this city grow, city grow where the small buildings have all been replaced by tall skyscrapers, the city limit has also been expanding , so its population
If asked what I love more about this place, I would definitely vote for the people, who show a good sense of brother hood and are always there when needed. The best part about Chennai is probably the number of Good schools which are around here in the city. So are the wonderful restaurants.
Frankly speaking I have not seen everypart of the city till date, but I know every nook and corner about Anna Nagar ( Thats where I stay ), and no doubt that I have to mention that this is one of the best residential areas in the city.
What adds to the beauty of this city is the presence of the world's second largest beach - The Marina . .!
Its always been a fun time for me to be at the beach and have a gasp of fresh air,Rajaji Salai will remain an unforgettable place as where I learnt my 4 wheeler driving. I also love the other rock and sea side spots ( Kasimedu & Royapuram side, where I escaped from the Tsunami in Dec 2004).
It has always been fun to hang around friends and co-bloggers at various Malls, Cafe's, Hotels,clubs and conferences halls in the city which hosts a number of hangout spots and these are quite safe ( safe to women too) when compared to the other metros
One thing is that I have never bothered a " Rat A$$ " about what the politics goes on here provided we keep receiving freebies from them
Overall I would be proud to be called a "Madrasi" or a "Chennaite" anywhere I go
This Tablog will procede further by post written by R. Shantaram , who has a daily Chennai photo blog and would write about what Chennai means to him
