MADRAS AKA CHENNAI
By Mohan Shenoy

MADRAS IN 2005 (RENAMED CHENNAI AROUND THAT TIME)

When I was born on May 15 1938, the Mangalore town was administered from Madras city. Mangalore was the head-quarters of the South Canara District which was included in the Madras Province.There was no need for me to visit Madras until the time I had to get a visa to travel to U. S. A., as an Exchange Visitor in 1968. By then I had practiced as a GP in Mangalore for about 18 months and also had a family. My wife and daughter Preethi got our visa to travel abroad from the U. S. Consulate in Madras. Madras was renamed by the Tamil Nadu government sometime after 1990.

When I began to shoot the video outside the U. S. Consulate on the morning of 27 September 2005, I was noticed by an armed sentry stationed on the flyover situated across the street and the security guards at the Consulate were probably called to stop me. My wife was with me. A security guard came near me and stopped me from shooting the video. What little I have from that clip has been included in this video.

The duration of the video is only a couple of minutes. No tourist spots other than the railway station is included in it.
