Chennai is a special place for me as I was born here. It was called Madras then. But names don't matter and therefore every time I arrive in Chennai, I feel at home. I love the food, can count from 1 - 20 in Tamil and love the smell of jasmine in the air.
To my pleasant surprise, Chennai didn't disappoint. The book launch was attended by over 80 people. I was also overwhelmed by the hospitality and efficiency of the Odyssey bookstore at Adyar.
