The issue of religion in this country has been a very sticky issue especially when it comes to issues relating to Muslims and Non Muslims.

I wonder why really good Tamil movies always seem to have tragic endings.
Just take Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu for example – brilliantly made movie but the ending was tragic, despite the underdogs winning the final match, the main character ends up dead and the beautiful heroine is left looking for her love for the rest of the life. Tragic indeed!

What happens if you are in Chennai and have just enough time to do one thing, what do you do? The answer is shopping!
Just returned from a holiday cum shopping cum fact-finding trip from Chennai, India…
