As we entered Mylapore maada veedhi, a procession with drummers, dancers, firecrackers and a van decorated like a ratham, greeted us. It was no festival but a funeral. While we took this in our stride, a group of curious tourists started clicking away.
The Sundaram Finance Mylapore festival events on the stage start at 5.30 pm. The early birds had a long wait. Gratefully, there were chairs to sit on.
(Dr.) Kannan, as the board says is an ‘Indian Medicine Practioner’. I was attracted by the quaint shop and its contents and layout. Mr Kannan was happy to pose. He said that the shop is 100-years old and he has been there for 44 years.
As the strike by the employees of the monopolistic TN Transport service enters the 4th day, there appears to be no relief for the passengers. This bus shelter in Luz, Mylapore has a prominent poster of a shaving razor (announcing a new eponymous Tamil film).
It seems to indicate the fate of the passengers.

The Mylapore Festival is on. The mandap in front of the temple was open and one could have a different view of the gopuram through the vaahanam cart placed there. The pillars in the mandapam had several figures carved on them.
