The background of the town is populated with interesting characters—writers, developers, thinkers; British investors, luminaries and rogues; freedom warring parties and political leaders who replaced the city’s political milieu. In self reliant India, the political lifetime of Madras used to be marked by means of battles for equality, the demolition of unjust caste buildings, and a outstanding spirit of secularism, all of which the writer brings to shiny life.
But the city’s special flavour isn't constrained to its heritage and politics, it owes a lot to its wealthy cultural, non secular, gastronomic and wearing heritage—highlights of which come with the biggest classical track pageant on this planet, a awesome array of cuisines, either local and imported, from the crisp dosai to highly spiced fowl sixty five, a keenness for cricket, tennis and chess and the easiest filter out espresso in the world.
