A womens group from the CSI Rainy Hospital region is excited - it decided to treat its Aug 15 events as Madras Day celebrations and has this as the theme.
Dances, pageants, quiz, painting and food . . .
They wanted suggestions - so I suggested that they hold an exhibition of all the less known landmarks in that area.
A residents' association from Nanganallur made contact - it is an umbrella for about 700 families.
Could they start a local history archives project?
We can try, they said.
This could be part of the common events they plan to host.
Madras Day should be the start of some thing substantial too.
Local archives is one project to give serious though to.
