“I moved to Chennai from the southern part of the state for my college education and have been living here ever since. It’s been close to 20 years now and one thing that has been a part of my routine in Chennai is coming to the beach. I take a walk from the Kanagi Selai to the lighthouse and I do this even if I get back home around 10:30 in the night. I could say that my day never feels complete without coming to Marina.
Over the weekend, I bring my son here for Silambam practise. It gives him the much-needed workout that children these days miss out on, while also giving him a better way to channelize his energy. I think it is important for people to know how to channelize their energies the right way. People have been losing that over the past few years. The lack of physical activity is what is making them more violent, depressed, and less peaceful I would say. That is why I ensure that my evening walks and my son’s weekend classes are never compromised for any reason.
I think the reason I am able to come for those evening walks or bring my son over here even in the wee hours of the night is the fact that Chennai has always remained one of the safest places in India. Having travelled across the length and breadth of the country, I think Chennai is one place where people of all walks of life can live in harmony. The growing population and the changing way of life have influenced the way the city operates over the past decade, but the beauty of this city is it never changes. The beach remains the same, the people remain the same, the warmth in everyone’s heart is the same.”
