One of the most gorgeous cities across India. Embracing tradition so close to its day-to-day functioning yet doesn’t miss out on keeping up with the modern trends. Chennai never ceases to amaze me, the history, tradition and urbanization are into a perfect blend.
Yet there are a few things that could be changed to make Chennai more awesome. Despite the historic influences of English in Chennai or ‘Madras’, what we are a city now currently lack is a strong foundation for the language English. There is a dearth of groups and clubs that are formed to promote spoken word poetry, poetry clubs, book-meets, talk with authors, book clubs, English theater and viewers and the like. One could say that, it is not really the case and there are a lot of city happenings that does happen around. However the reality is that, for the population in this city, there is no much scope or avenue to learn, share and develop.
With increasing number of activities, fresh blood can easily be identified, more new talents can be nurtured along with those existing persons who are looking for such opportunities. More activities, more clubs, more initiatives and more visits and discussions with budding authors, poets can have a huge impact on the city.
(given that I do love Tamil and all other languages)
This is the aspect which I would like to see Chennai change itself. However true to the saying be the CHANGE you wish to see, here I’m in Chennai Blogger’s Club.
