|| Well i have lived all my life in chennai (for the past 27 years)except for a year in mumbai..i used to crib, crib --chennai is a god forbidden city.. heat, pollution, irritating auto drivers, conservative people, dirty politics, dishonest policemen..chennai sucks..esp whenever i used to land from another state or country..
but TRUST ME...its not a bad place to live when we compare it with other metros.. thanks to Praveena.. she has said what i wanted to say..
when i comtemplate.. its a really a decent place to live in when it comes to raising your children, educating them ( provides some best education sans sporting activities.. which is quite sad),
I can never say I'm frantically attached to Chennai/Madras.Like others who love Madras, I just love my home town.madras kicks some serious butt when compared to other places.infrastructure way way ahead of many other cities, relatively peaceful and calm life, and most importantly a highly intellectual and knowledgable crowd.agreed the pseudo's exist and they do in pockets, they have not been able to take over the very basic qualities that the great city posesses.
Advantages of Chennai
1. Cost of living is very low
2. Real estate prices, reasonable
3. Food is cheap.
4. Public Transport (Only Mumbai has a better one)
5. Roads (Being in bangalore, we have actually forgotten what roads are right?)
"Even though the city is very hot during summer, if you donít want to see your teenaged daughter in discos or pubs late evenings with a drunken, long-haired guy or donít like to see a Ďpaintedí wife all the time or if you donít want to make your kids get addicted to pizzas and Kentucky chicken and want to provide them with world-class education, then Chennai is still a good place to live in..
p.s. no offence intended with the last para.. it was written by a chennaite ( TP Sajith in chennai online) who is too too passionate abt his city-
My point ultimately is If you think the weather, the discs and the english speaking elite is all that you need in a city, then Chennai is not the right place. "
