Namma Chennai !!!


"Dai , You better forget her ...I am putting route for her ..." , the stern and terrifying voice of kandaswamy broke the silence . Accompanying Kandaswamy were three of his friends kuppuswamy , dina and raja all equally menacing .
"No I wont ...I have been loving her for the past 3 years ...If I don't leave her what will you do " , Munuswamy replied without any remorse .

Phatt...The sound of a slap broke through the air .

A few hours later ,
"Machan , they have kept their hands on me da ... call our guys " Munuswamy spoke frantically over the phone ...A shaky auto , 5 goons compressed inside it , the war had begun..."drive it straight to kandaswamy's home "....

"Dai , If you are born to one father , come out " munuswamy retorts ...(Its an age old dialog trying to ignite the feelings of " Respect " in the enemy in order to make him come out )

Kandaswamy comes out ...Fear showed in his eyes ...

and suddenly , the turn of events ...

"Machi , how are you ...long time ...I never knew he was your friend...I am extremely sorry boss...I will forget her ... " , and as expected one of the goons is a friend of kandaswamy and they all become friends ...( Always remember the basic rule of street fight ...whatever is the problem be the one to hit first ...else u will never get to hit back )

In case you find it familiar , you are a chennaiite or else welcome to chennai ...

Whenever there is a street fight there is just one reason ..."Area Figure "...due to gods unfavorable distribution of gals , chennai has always suffered from the scarcity of good looking gals . So as expected the hardly-available-one-very-average figure in the area gets the coveted title of "Area-figure". And though the area figure has no idea about the guys behind her , there would be n number of guys fighting amongst themselves as to who has the right to 'try' for her ...

That's how most of the friendships are made in the streets across chennai .The reasons may sometimes be even more insane than this , but however these friendships are the ones which go beyond money , status, caste , creed and everything else .... the quintessential chennai "machan " friendships which comprise of the screeching whistles at the movies , the bike races , the night-outs , the drunkard parties at the terrace , the bantering , "machan-you-also-got-a bulb-from-her" happiness , the neighborhood aunties , the cricket matches , the paneer soda , the area fights , the stomach-burning sessions at marina after seeing the couples , the dead body dances on new year eve, the thalaivar first day first show , the fast food chilli chicken ....Well though most of us were never a part of this kandaswamys and muniswamys we always loved their spirit... and how much ever we try to loathe them , some small part of our heart goes out to them ...wherever we go in chennai they are there . After all they are the ones who stand as the testimony for the "ever-smiling-ever-rocking spirit of chennai "...

As I keep writing this "Dai arun , un figura vittudhu !!! ava en alu " madasamys calls out to me....These guys never change and so does chennai...lol

Keep rocking dear kandasamys and munisamys ...

And getting reminded about the spirit and mood of chennai this video captures it all . Enjoy it and keep smiling while I return soon ...
