Having been overseas for a number of years and with home in Kerala and interests in Bangalore, I have not been to Chennai (Madras) for quite some time.
This is where Sunu, my wife was born and brought up. The house was built in 1951 on half an acre of land.
It got a number of coats of paints after that but this is the first time the original paint is getting scraped for new paint being applied.
Incidentally, her house is one of the very few large houses standing in the premium Adyar location, where most others have given way to multi storey apartments.
The solid structure is likely to stay, as it is, for quite sometime to come, I hope. And it would look majestic with the new coat of modern paint.
