For the photographers on a walk in the Art District at Kannagi Nagar, Chennai, the most popular location was a building with the image of two smiling children in Black and White. These two girls and the old man were also the cynosures of the lenses.
For a change, I thought they will look different and better in sepia tone.

The Madras University Senate House was built in the 1870s. It is one of the classic examples of Indo-Saracenic architecture. The stained glass windows here are outstanding.

The humble underwear, once categorised as ‘the unmentionables’ is in the news in a big way.

Now with the discussion on the economy getting the media space it deserves, the ‘Alan Greenspan Underwear index’ hit the headlines. According to Greenspan the sale of Men’s Underwear gives a fair indication of the state of the economy.
The Economic Times reported that the sale of inner wear fell sharply in India in the previous quarter indicating a slump in the economy.
Does the slump in underwear sales reveal so much about the economy and increase in sales cover up something? (pun intended)
Anyway, men of India, gird up your loins to pull up the economy. Go out and by your underwear.
Balamurugan, Jannathul or Jesus. Add to that a placard warning you that there is only one God. Take your pick.

Trucks, buses, vans and other commercial vehicles sport very interesting pictures and wordings. ‘Horn OK Please’ is universally known.
My idea is to showcase some of these graffiti here.
