Mylapore Middle Street

Recently I went to Mylapore for a work and I reached too early. Not knowing how to spend nearly two hours, I roamed around the place. One could spot pristine, upper middle class houses on one side of the road and slum on the other! I have never before seen so much difference on two sides of the road.


எங்க குடியிருக்கீங்க?
நடுத்தெருவுல சார்!
Most of Mylapore was bit like my old residential place(Chromepet) with very smallish streets and women fighting at water taps (To subject any Tamil learner to the ultimate test of language proficiency, ask him/her to decipher women-at-metro-tap fights. :D)

The most interesting thing that I spotted (and the namesake of this post) was the street in the photo; I was literally laughing on the road with people giving me strange looks!!

  3. @anon: It means the title of this post: Middle street. If you are not a native Tamil, it's bit difficult to understand the joke. "Nadu theru"(lit. middle street) is an expression typically used to mean insolvent, homelessness etc.
