We’re Mad About Madras
Ever though that urban cities would have days praising their inception? Well, Madras or today’s Chennai has a day celebrating its birthday!
The founding day of Madras is thought to be August 22, 1639.
We got the name Chennai just in 1996. Until then it was Madras, accepted to be gotten from Madrasapattinam which is a fishing village north of Fort St. George. An intriguing clarification is that it could have been gotten from a fisherman named Madrasan. We South Indians are as yet being gathered under the expression “Madrasis” which evolved as Madras.
You may know Madras as so many things. For some it’s one of the hottest, most humid, most intolerable cities while for others,it’s home, it’s safety and it’s freedom. No matter what you may know Madras for, it is undoubtedly one of the most important cities in India.
Madras, a clamoring city acclaimed for its cultural roots and manufacturing prowess, has something to offer for everybody. Many people know Superstar Rajinikanth, Viswanathan Anand and the Mozart of Madras — A.R.Rahman. Be that as it may, it has significantly more to offer — the Authentic Filter Coffee, the Beautiful Marina Beach, India’s first Bookshop at Higginbothams, Hot and steaming Idlis, the Madras Music Season, Countless sanctuaries, Automobile Industry.
Madras day are usually loaded with exercises that motivate community to concentrate on its past and present.
So here is a small token of madness for Madras.
