If you like me who love the city that you live in, then you will certainly love the dialect of the local language also that is spoken there. In my case, for Chennai (Madras) we have a famous dialect of the Tamil Language called “Madras Bhashai”. Just like any other metropolis, this dialect is a “Kalakkal” (mixture) of many other Languages (Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi and a strong influence of Butler English). Normally I find it difficult to explain about Madras Bhashai to the interested, especially to other Tamils, but that was until I came across this page from Wikipedia. The page is a good compilation of everything on this unique dialect of Tamil. Thank you, Karthik Ramaswamy (my college classmate) for sharing this link on our alias.

The other interesting link I came across this time was ILoveChennai dot com. This website is a local software designer’s effort on spreading his love for this beautiful city.
