The calls we receive, to know about the Madras Day are from all corners of the city.
We were surprised to receive a bunch of T.shirt, a cap and a bag all bearing a design on Chennai theme from a leading builder of the city. Lancor Holdings Ltd sent us the packet. The moment they read about the 'Design the Chennai T.shirt contest' in the nespaper, they remembered their design on the city theme and sent it as an entry for the contest!
When we called the company to explain the spirits of the Madras Day and the host of contests to participate in, Lalit C. Shah, the DGM, Corporate Communication of the company was ready to know what he can do for the day that celebrates the city.
Here is another company looking for ways to be part of the celebrations!
Chandrachoodan Gopalakrishnan preferred to visit our office and handed over his card. This copywriter is an avid blogger too. One of the contributors of Chennai metblogs, Chandrachoodan is eager to know what he could do for the day.
Well, he could blog about it, he will be a volunteer at the events venue, may be he could join the heritage walks.
A set of students from the electronic media department of Anna University were trying to contact me on the cell during their lunch time! After all they have a few minutes in their hands to talk over cell phones as they are not permitted to take them to the college. Later they sent an SMS that they want to take part in the Short film contest and wanted to know the details, rules, etc.,
There was also a request. The deadline August 10 is too near for them to submit the entries.
Yes! We have extended the date by another week. The last date for submission of entries for the Short Film on the city contest is now August 17.
They talk about their film for the Madras Day during their lunch on Friendship Day!
