Once upon a time, I started a photo-series on places in India, to capture its people and its colours. After rushing through many states & stories, that series fizzed out purely out of my inability to sort out the never ending stack of photos! (Not stacks really, considering we are in the digital age..but somehow the word “stack” implies a lot of work compared to, say, “gigabytes”.) Well, thought I’d revive it for 2 more posts at least, before I get too cozy on my bean bag again.
So here is the Marina beach in Chennai in all its glory on an eventful Sunday evening: complete with some seductively PINK candy, a “bhajji” shop that serves mouthwatering bhajjis (Wikipedia compares bhajji to potato fritters, but the ones I’m talking about are made with chillis… Hot!), and a huge crowd that proves the statement “the more the merrier”…
Oh and I’m sure that the seriously long, mega-sized blue letters that forms this post’s title must have you wondering “what!!?”. Well, apparently, it was something someone said to Grant Duff (the governor of Madras who developed this promenade) when he talked about moving to India. And I totally agree with whoever that someone was! Anyways, thanks to Wikipedia for the title. Enjoy!
Nothing like the beach to refuel you on a weekend! What do you think? Do leave a comment below!
