Spreading cheer and cleanliness

It was Sunday morning. A part of the arterial Anna Salai [Mount road] was closed for traffic to facilitate the conduct of ‘ Happy Streets” an event of fun-filled activities for all. While a large number of people from far and near were having fun and frolic, this young lady went about her job of cleaning the entrance of the Chennai Metro station cheerfully.
