    What would be more fitting for a first post than telling the world a little bit about Chennai? From Wikipedia,

    Chennai pronunciation (Tamil: சென்னை), formerly known as Madraspronunciation , is the capital of the state of Tamil Nadu and is India‘s fourth largestcity. It is located on the Coromandel Coast of the Bay of Bengal. With an estimated population of 7.60 million (2006), the 368-year-old city is the 36th largest metropolitan area in the world.The city is a large commercial and industrial centre, and is known for its cultural heritage and temple architecture. Chennai is the automobile capital of India, with a major percentage of the automobile industry having a base there and with a major portion of the nation’s vehicles being produced there. Chennai is also referred to as the Detroit of South Asia. It has also become a major center for outsourced jobs from the Western world. The 12-kilometre long Marina Beach forms the city’s east coast and is one of the longest beaches in the world. The city is known for its sport venues and hosts India’s only ATP tennis event, the Chennai Open.

    Although not a really news to most of you, I still am fascinated by the special ‘madras baashai’ section and how extensively they explain the unique slang that some of us have grown up in!!
