The Madras University Senate House was built around 1875. This Indo -Saracenic structure was designed by Robert Chisholm.

The hall was closed to the public but was opened as a venue of Chennai Photo Biennale.

Central Station

There has been an announcement of renaming Central station after a former CM of the State. For a true blooded Madrasi it will always remain ‘Central’ – not even Madras Central, unlike Bombay Central. I have not even got over my city being renamed Chennai. However, such minority views do not count in an emotion-laden public issue.

What is your view on it?

Above wall -painting is from Thiruvanmiyur Station. ‘Thriuvnmiyuril Central’. Like ‘Chennaiyil Thiruvaiyaru’
