MAD MAD MADras! Cosmo Chennai!


Hi everybody!
I’ve been thinking of chipping in ‘MAD MAD MADras! Cosmo Chennai’ as a regular feature in my blog for a very long time now.
There are two things that led me here:
a) I’m a HP saleswoman (enjoying all the selling, at least for nowJ) who’s pretty much ON THE MOVE. I get to ramp up and down the noisy, colorful and namma-ooru streets, gulleys and wide roads of Chennai today, and Madras yesterday. Before I move out of sales, into the ‘creative’ job I’ve always wanted to engage myself in, I thought I could see Chennai just a little more.
b) My heart beats with this city’s pulse- it is so balanced that you feel like you’re living on both sides of the cultural see-saw. It’s a Nalli Pattu Sari for a wedding, a Shopper’s odaya Kurta for work and a Cotton world ka breezy top/skirt for an evening/night out.

So, I’m right here living every moment like it were my first and last. I would just like to share my pulsating/plummeting experiences on one side, as I engage in ravenous razzle dazzle with Dell, Lenovo, IBM, HCL, Acer, etc on the other.

I have my best friends, a boyfriend, a moderately conservative/outgoing family, Stella Marian/Loyolite n the ilk buxom/hulk bozos, Maru/kannadica/guju/Bengali immigrant-vasis, Lady Andal/PSBB ki(a)d(ult)s, oldeez, phirangs (not necessarily in that order though) for company- they breathe this city along with me, day-in day-out. I religiously hope and sincerely pray you’re having a field day, every day- whichever city you are in, as long as you drop in here for a few minutes and L.I.V.E. my life for that span of time.
You could call it a ‘TELEPORT’ ritual, wherein you transport yourself here, and live this city, and my life through my eyes, ears, hands and legs!

Life is too short a word to describe the vast permutations and combinations of possibilities that it throws in our face!
Chennai is too interesting a place for you to miss this particular permutation and combination code that unlocks this city open to you!
Love and Cheers!
JJ
Disclaimer- I’m not J.Jayalalitha, I’m Jane Jeyakumar; the difference- she tries to own Chennai and Chennai owns me, she throws her weight around in/with the aid of AIADMK and I throw my weight (quite literally;)) around with a different AIADMK- ALL IN ALL DUBUKKU MOKKAI K(G)ROOPU.

P.S: Meet my k(g)roopu and have fun all the way!!!
