Two images from Chennai

One of the places that typifies Pondy Bazar, in Theagaraya Nagar (no one EVER calls it that, it's only referred to as T.Nagar! More about initial names for areas later)....is

Sri Balaji Bhavan

...there's been a restaurant (in Tamil Nadu we call them "hotels") around on this spot for as long as I can remember.

r2 police at door step 250610

Interesting sidelight...in the rear-view mirror at the top left of the photo, you can see "Savi's Soups" in reverse!

However, I don't think I'd like the police on MY doorstep, thank you! I prefer not seeing certain parts of society, unless I *have* to.... like policemen, doctors, ambulance attendants, and insurance agents....
