During my morning walk...

I will be documenting that morning walk of mine...yes, I did take along MLC2 yesterday.

But some things are even more eye-catching than others...

As I turn from Santhome High Road on the Marina, into Radhakrishnan sAlai (erstwhile Edward Elliotts Road), I find that I am suddenly in New York!

Well, I was not in a militant mood, I was...affable...!

In Tamizh, the sign says "appapuL" (in Tamizh, "f" sound is written,somewhat awkwardly, with a "therefore" sign written before the "p" consonant...but that wasn't the case here). So, I was appapul instead of affable.

I do enjoy taking my MLC along!

It's beginning to pour with rain again...I'm going to enjoy going to get some vegetables now...

Statues on the Marina.....

The Marina Beach in Chennai

is one of the public open-air spots in the city that gets a lovely sea breeze in the afternoons, and is a popular spot to visit.

It has a line of statues, that the wiki link above lists; and here's the sunrise on the statue of

Kamarajar (kAmarAjar)

The beach faces east, and sunrises are beautiful...when there's a sunrise, can thoughts of asakiyume be far behind? :)

Here's the "Gandhi silai" (statue of Gandhi) that stands at the junciton of the Beach road and Radhakrishnan Road:

True to his reputation for simplicity, Gandhi walks, while all around him, the rich park their cars to come and walk, too...!
