As you would expect in a metro with a history, Chennai has people of all religious faiths. So, it is not surprising to see Jain temples in many of the sections of the city. The one on Kutchery Road Mylapore is quite prominent being located in a busy road very close to the Kapali temple.

Water pots and water carriers are essential elements in water-deficient Chennai. No wonder these water carrier dolls found a prominent place in the market for golu dolls on North Mada Street, Mylapore this year.
Coat of Arms
Architectural features of a house on Arundel Street, Mylapore (opposite Rayar’s Mess). Does the badge represent any coat of arms or is it just a decoration? Any idea?

Halo for the Mahatma
Floodlights from a tower appear as a halo for the statue of Mahatma Gandhi at Marina, Chennai, India.
Bit kitschy, but I like it. Hope you too will.

Motifs in Monochrome
There was a riot of colours on North Mada Street Mylapore. I thought why not try monochrome for a change. Here is the result. Happy Dussehra! From the PSM Photowalk. Please view fullscreen.
The world celebrates Gandhiji’s birthday today as Gandhi Jayanthi. The Navaratri golu dolls bazaar on North Mada Street, Mylapore had many images of the Mahatma along with the usual divine figures.
Quietly Viewing the Chaos
Mylapore streets were chock-a-block with bommai shops, people and vehicles. This boy was looking at the chaos outside from the quiet interiors of his house. From the Photowalk conducted by Photographic Society of Madras.
