    Thanks for the link for the carnival of cities, it was an engaging read and I learnt a few things, that they dont show on Travel channel

    As to your post, to tell you the truth, I had tears in my eyes. Being a mylaporean for 16 years, the streets, sounds and flavors captured brought back so many memories. I can close my eyes to remember the fragrance of camphor mixed with roses, on the street adjoining Kapaleeshwar kovil, all the way to ambika applam

    Hi Lakshmi….I’ve had to do a bit of catching up…I always enjoy the photos of the countryside, and villages…but, my favorite is when you photograph the beautiful people..I especially like it when you can get smiles as you captured on one gentleman…Various styles of clothing is most interesting…the marketplace reminds me of our American flea markets..Thank you for sharing… Good blessings for the day ….Dee Dee

    Reeta – Thanks for the comment..good to see you after a long time

    Sayani -Thanks..glad you enjoyed reading them

    Gil – Thank you. I hope to see you in Chennai soon.The market is today more organised in villages than in cities . The carnival is Wendy’s initiative as she hosted it..I just participated ..I just visited your space and as usual, its amazing

    Anu – I understand the thought..being just 350 kms away, I miss Madras or Chennai everyday..the sights and the sounds of Mylpore and Alwarpet where I lived although my folks still live near Egmore/Vepery, for me madras is synonymous with Mylapore and Alwarpet..

    Alok , Ropi , Celine – Thank you. Im glad you liked the posts

    Sameera -Its in Marina, actually Santhome beyond the Lighthouse area

    Mark – Yes, I miss having one in my basic digital camera..the zoom and the wide angle lens are my basic needs now..saving to get a brand new camera by Dec..any suggestions?

    Deedee – Thanks for sharing your thoughts..Im happy that Im able to showcase some aspects of India to you ..Its colourful and vibrant and these local people are mainly in villages bred people are so different from the those in the countryside though

    Gopal – Thank you ..Thats Chennai/Madras for you

    Shantanu – Yes, thats so true ..its a great observation..thanks for sharing

    Great work”” “Blog Carnival- Carnival of Cities ” Hello there Lakshmi… .I’ve needed to do a touch of making up for lost time… I generally appreciate the photographs of the field, and towns… yet, my most loved is the point at which you photo the wonderful people..I particularly like it when you can get grins as you caught on one man of honor… Various styles of dress is most fascinating… the commercial center helps me to remember our American insect markets..Thank you for sharing… Good favors for the day … .Dee
