When you are young, simple things make you happy. Playing with friends in a neighbour’s ironing cart, for example. Like these two – Vasanth Kumar & Karthik – in Nethaji Nagar, Korukkupet, an area developed by Burmese refugees in 1966.

The caption on the cart reads, அளவில்லா ஆனந்தமாய்  “Alavilla Anandmaay” (Immeasurable Delight)

Photography in Chennai Metro

The Chennai Metro network offers many photo opportunities. However, for some reason photography is prohibited if you are carrying an SLR.

On the other hand I saw many taking pictures with their cell phones and the staff were turning a blind eye.

This snap of the hand straps is what most photographers with a trained eye would attempt. I did too.
