Let me, please


I'm going to Madras after quite sometime, and I can imagine how much I'm going to hate it when I have to sit at home. The only time Madras doesn't suck is when you are out in the streets -- being too busy to notice the hot, moist, sticky thing that's supposed to be air. And it's always been like this. There have been times when I would get off the train in Kaatpadi and turn back to Bangalore because it would get stickier as the train got closer and closer to Madras. It's not "vellakara aatam" or "veli naatu mogam."
So please, let me whine and complain. Let me act it out. Don't call me pretentious for feeling uncomfortable in this damn place.

I suppose it will take a while to get used to it. DEcember would be much more bearable.

The Individualist said...

Grr. What IS the 'true Indian culture'?
And Suresh, did you happen to visit Coffee day yesterday evening at around 7.30 PM? Or did I, not unusually, mistake someone for you?

Priya said...

Hey! Tell me about that. Chennai heat is very bad. I just came back from there. But it rained the day I left. Salem was even hotter. Cannot sit in one place. Goddamn heat kills everybody's attitude. But you know what people said? "You should have come in May. It was even hotter!" I can't imagine the place hotter than this!!

Apart from the humidity, Chennai is lovely.
I have been there twice and loved it. Perhaps not that stinking river in the centre of town or the plight of the poor and homeless or the open sewers or the traffic congestion or the airport officials who demand money at every checkpoint or the auto-rickshaw men who want to take you around the long way for a destination within walking distance..or the taxis where once you get it there is no way to get out unless someone lets you out...just kidding. Despite all that it is still okay compared to say Bombay..?

The Individualist said...

Er I asked you something, you know. :-s

Suresh said...

^^illa da, it wasn't me. I don't go to coffee shops.:p

The Individualist said...

Habba, okay. Relieved now.
And as for Coffee shops, ah, the way you say it, the place appears distasteful. :p
It probably is.

Thilak pratap selva kumar said...

Coffee shops are bloody expensive. I've been there twice or thrice, and I took an oath that I would never step into one again!

-TPSK

Suresh said...

Yeah, that's basically the deal. The stuff they sell are pretty expensive and the place is full of pretentious people. And the "service" is a little too much for me to take - ref

Thilak pratap selva kumar said...

haha. Well said, especially in the end, "Cut the crap, get my food and make it good!". - Bingo!

I pity kids who think it's 'hip' to actually go there.
