The decision to leave home is never an easy one, especially if it’s Chennai. But you might find yourself in such a position when there’s a new career path to follow or when you’re simply pushing out of your comfort zone. Whatever the case, the pangs of longing never fully disappear.
And when you return, there’s a singular moment when you emerge amidst the sound of traffic, taxis and autos bombarding you.

It is a homecoming for sure, even though you might be tempted to call your port of origin home now.
When others ask, “What’s so special about your city?” you might appear dumbfounded – but that’s only because you might not know where to begin. Take Mount Road, for example.

It is a perfect place for peace and privacy, away from the stress of everyday life.
Apart from the culture, there is of course, the indigenous filter coffee and podi dosa from Murugan Idli – both excellent reasons to fall in love with Chennai all over again. And conversations you have with street stall vendors can quickly turn into a highlights reel of the city’s past
