Chennai on Metroblogging Map

After Mumbai, Chennai becomes the second Indian city to join the Metroblogging Network. Familiar names like Kiruba, Nancy Gandhi, Keerthi, Chandru, Srivatsan, Echo and Yours Truly are behind this initiative. We have grand plans for this Metroblog and your support and encouragement will help us move in the right direction. For those interested in looking at various aspects of life in Chennai, we have a separate Flickr feed which serves this purpose. You can subscribe to the Chennai Metroblog by using this RSS feed.

Here is the welcome message from the Metroblogging Team:
Continuing our theme of cities that have been recently renamed, we're happy to introduce Chennai which used to be called Madras. Wikipedia says that Chennai is called "the Detroit of South Asia" because of the auto industry focus there, but we're happy to call it the 44th Metroblogging city. It's also our second metblog in India - stop by and check it out.

  • Correction to the above. Actually the first invite in the group had come to me way back in Feb and I somehow missed that email. I replied today saying I will be happy to come on board and asking for the login details. So hopefully I will be in too :-).
