About two years ago a group of photo walkers tried to enter the Madras Cemetery for some photo-ops. They were stopped by the alert watchman. There was also another disappointed group- a couple with a professional photographer for a pre-wedding shoot. A rather curious choice of venue for a pre-wedding shoot! Or is there a deeper meaning to it?

The Bengalis of Chennai conduct with fervour the Saradotsav at Besant Nagar Community Hall every year. I have attended a couple of them. This year when I went on Friday, I knew I was late for the event as they were already taking out the images for immersion. Glad I was able to get at least a brief glimpse of it.

There is a saying in Malayalam for being late for important events. “Pooram kazhinju pindiye kaanan” “പൂരം കഴിഞ്ഞു പിണ്ടിയെ കാണാൻ ” Literally, ” going late to the festival to see elephant droppings”
