Every January I make it a point to visit the annual Tourism and Trade Fair (இந்திய சுற்றுலா தொழிற் பொருட்காட்சி, சென்னை) that happens in Island Grounds, Chennai. Roaming through the shops and the stalls reminds me of the simpler times from my childhood when I used to hold my father’s hand and go there. It used to be fascinating just to see the variety of ‘cheap’ toys available there and intrigued by the displays in the Government department stalls. Now, the world has changed, everything is available on the Internet. My son doesn’t want to join me, he feels it is boring, but I still go there!
The car parking is charged Rs.100 and entry for an adult is Rs.35.
