The place to be

If you are sweating profusely inspite of some A/c breeze that you get

If you feel like puking left, right, center,

If there is traffic jam even on the foot path

If you are not even taking a step forward, but still end up at your destination

If you are groped, touched or hit here and there

If the smell around makes you dizzy and you feel your own sweat smells better than the smell around

If you are constantly nagged like " akka chudithar theikkanuma, 1 hourla asin style la thechu tharuvom ka"

If even at past 10 in the night, there are people and only people around

If all you can hear is about Saravana Stores, brammandamai and "eduthukko eduthukko annachi kadayil eduthukko"

If you want to buy cheap gold at cheap rates

If you come across sellers selling chudithars and t shirts for rs 60

If you are simply confused as to the shop you must visit and the clothes you must choose

If you are deepfried as a Chicken 65


Then you are in the shopping hub (???) of Chennai. Welcome to T.Nagar, the most busiest shopping place on earth!This is the place you got to be if you want to see how happy people are...cos anytime of the year, there is always a huge crowd here. And who said, people are not having enough money in hand? I beg to differ cos why else, everyone would have atleast one carry bag of annachi kadai, one carry bag of Pothys, and one carry bag of Jeychandran Textiles?You name it, you get it here.So, if you wish to experience out of the world shopping experience, THIS is the place to be!

T.Nagar is my fav shopping hub too.
but i prefer pothys, chennai silks to annachi kadai

ss said...

@ALEX

@YOGESH
I went to see annachi kadai just to beat the curiosity as to wats there..otherwise i prefer RMKV and chennai silks.
