Though not old enough to get a heritage tag, this house in Pulla Reddy Avenue, Shenoy Nagar stands out amidst the overall development of multi-storey concrete structures.

How long will it hold against the onslaught, I am not sure.

Nandi, the sacred bull is the vaahan of Lord Shiva.Normally, we will find the Nandi in front the sanctum sactorum. The nandis of Lepakshi (click here for a post) and Thanjavur are huge.

Nandi images are also common on the walls of any Shiva temple. These are from the walls.

May Nadikeswara bless my  400th daily post.

It was early Saturday morning in China Bazaar (NSC Bose Road). This shopkeeper had just opened his shop. Perhaps, later in the day, he will be so busy  vending  toffees,snacks, and hundred other items that he will hardly have any time to lean out and gaze.

Abandoned

Abandoned Quarters in Fort St.George

Fort St.George Chennai has so much history to showcase.  But the whole site is pathetically neglected and abused. There are multiple authorities which claim ownership of various segments or installations – Archeological Survey of India (ASI), Ministry of Defence and the Government of Tamil Nadu. Heritage ultimately suffers.
