“As a person who spent a good amount of her growing years in Cochin, I think my deep found love for Chennai as a city prospered thoroughly through these years. From an introverted person to a vivacious outgoing person, Chennai has brought out a side of mine which has remained dormant inside of me for a long time!
So in 2007, when I came back to Chennai after several years, it felt at home – and it felt so right! I was at my native place, the place where I belonged. And as the days passed by, this place moulded me into the person I am today. Be it crossing busy traffic ridden roads to travelling by public transport and learning all about personal banking – this place has been that for me! The place that lent confidence to my strides and made me a happier person at large.
Even though Kochi was a beautiful place with heavy rains and a tropical climate and nice people and nice food and culture, I was thrilled to visit sathyam cinemas, dakshinachitra, Spencer plaza, etc. That was also the time my brother got me a camera and I remember clicking many pics in all the places I mentioned. For me, chennai is not only a city, it’s also an emotion.
Nobody would love the city the way we 90s kids love it and yes, I am one of those 90s kids. Now, after so many years, I wanna be in other places and settle in other places in India and the world, but Chennai will always be Chennai for me!”
