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!
Here you go, Manhattan and Brooklyn:
Don't miss the "recession special"!
And now we go to the Bronx, as well....
Our "thalaivar"s (leaders) who are Members of the Legislative Assembly take themselves very seriously; parking (on a public road, and on a public footpath) is reserved for them:
I wanted to see if I could park a car there and claim that I was also an MLA....Mylapore Lady Affable! :)
Affable! Why affable? You ask.
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...
