2 47 - Front Chennai That the city is where the old and the new walk hand in hand is an old cliché. Although founded as a city in 1639, the people and the places, the culture and a way of life, are as ancient as time. Henry Davidson Love, an engineer of the British Government in Madras, and a fellow of the Madras University, published a series of books in 1913 titled Vestiges of Old Madras. Old Madras was old in 1730, 1857 and A 100 years after, we still refer to Old Madras, and we will continue to do it, a further 100 years later. But, pause a while. Take a closer look. Every generation that referred to Old Madras built its New Madras. temples of the Pallavas gave way to the churches of the Portuguese, the houses and gardens of the Nawabs became the universities and forts and offices of the British, and we continue to use them today. While building newer offices, newer forts and newer universities. folksy, salt-of-the-earth songs and rhymes of the people were codified into Carnatic music in the 1500s, expanded upon and institutionalised in the 1600s, and (with generous helpings of Western classical modes) became the All India Music Congress in the 1920s. Today, the December Kutcheri Season as it is called, is one of the largest cultural events in the world. Every event and era, is here for you to discover. So come along, explore Chennai and unlock generations of stories.

For thousands of years, Chennai has welcomed every new material and technology, every architectural style. Take for instance, the 1200 year old Pallava temples of Tiruvotriyur and Triplicane.

British architects in Chennai fused south-indian temple design aesthetics, with Turkish and Arabian style to build these lasting monuments to the Raj.

This set the formula for the sensory Cinema experience that tamil cinema is. Music, dances, comedy, tugging the heartstrings. Everything to evoke a reaction from you, everything to make those two-three hours worth your while. atres and studios, producers, actors, stars and hopefuls; to people who make and consume films in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada, Chennai is vital.

AVM Studios, Vadapalani. Prasad Studios Vijaya Studios Meanwhile, the earliest film theatres and cinema houses were experimenting with simultaneous sound and picture projection, in Chennai. Gaiety. Casino. Lyric. Elphinstone. Wellington each name lives on long after the physical cinema house has gone. Majestic (Now an apartment complex) Shyamala Studios (now a shopping mall) In the move towards independent film production and corporatisation, the big studios have slowly transformed, and are now hospitals, or apartments or shopping malls. But the vestiges of the film world still live on in these transformed spaces, and with a little luck, you could spot them and retell that story.

8 59 - Front Pondy Bazaar Mylapore Tank & Mylapore s Thanni Thurai Market. Retail If Purasawalkam Flower Bazaar & George Town you haven t noticed already, just look out of your room. Chennai is retail heaven, shopping mecca, the ground-zero for bargains and the best place to get what you want. Chennai, or Madras, was founded on trade. European and Arabian traders believed that this land was where you got the best merchandise, and the best bargains. 400 years on, this is still true. Jewellery. Apparel. Silks. Leather.

Sundari Silks Nalli Silks Spencer s Plaza Phoenix Market City Forum Vijaya Mall

9 61 - Front Philosophy osophical Gardens, Besant Nagar Chennai asks questions. Reality. Existence. Reason. Language. city s minds have dwelled deep into each of these topics and more, often resulting in answers that change established norms, challenge perceptions. Krishnamurthi Foundation, Greenways Road Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and Henry Steel Olcott establish the osophical Society of Adyar. Since then, the society has been at the forefront of the city s philosophical pursuits, and played a major rule in the country s freedom struggle. It was from the gardens that housed the path-breaking movement that Annie Besant launched the Home Rule League, calling for India s self-determination. Ramakrishna Mission, Kutcheri Road It s 1897, and Swami Vivekanada returns to India after introducing India and her beliefs to western audiences. In Madras, the great man asked his friend, Swami Ramakrishnananda to lay foundation for the Ramakrishna Mutt. Initially based out of the Ice House where Vivekananda stayed during his sojourn in Madras, the mutt later shifted to a permanent mansion in Mylapore. Ice House/ Vivekanada House, Beach Back in the osophical Society, Jiddu Krishamurti, a leading light of the society, dubbed by many the Maitreya Buddha, was codifying his own interpretations of philosophy. Jiddu later broke away to form his own Krishnamurti Foundation, in an attempt to bring radical change into society. In a state ravaged by caste atrocities, E.V.Ramasamy sparked a revolution in the Madras Presidency with his Self-Respect Movement. Periyar, as he came to be famously known, sought to achieve a society fair for all. Almost all of the state s modern day political parties owe their origins to Periyar and his movement. It was the Dravidian movement which abolished caste markers in Tamil names, fuelled the city s and the state s race to education and industrialisation.

10 63 - Front Literature Connemara Library, Egmore A body of literature that is at least 3000 years old, Tamil language has one of the longest, unbroken literary record in the world. Little wonder then, that Chennai the capital of Tamil Nadu has a particular thing for writers, thinkers and poets. U.V Swaminathan Research Library, Adayar osophical Society Library, Besant Nagar Madras Archives, Egmore From Sangam s Neythal poets to the Bhakti movements Alwars and Nayanmars, to the independence struggle s nationalist poets, writers and poets have called Chennai home. Thiruvalluvar, according to most accounts, was born in Chennai, in Mylapore couplets or Kurals he wrote shaped the imagination of Tamils for more than a millennia, and continues to do so. U.V Swaminatha Iyer, meanwhile, set out on a quest to find Tamil s classic literature and did. Secular, class-free and inordinately beautiful, the Sangam Poems became the new canon of Tamil Literature and Poetry, delighting native speakers and newcomers with its lyrics and its structure. Mylapore, Sanskrit College/ Tiruvalluvar state Triplicane Bharathiyar Home Higginbothams Purasawalkam Velalar Street: Home of R.K Narayan Not far away geographically from Tiruvalluvar, but a world away in terms of milieu and events, Subramania Bharati s fiery words sought justice, liberated ideas and inspired a nation to fight for its rights. Prolific writers of fiction and historicals, Mahadevan, Kalki Krishnamurti, Sujata Rangarajan, Sivasankari, R.K Narayanan and more have made Chennai the focal point of the literary movement in the state, and to a large extent, of India.
