...thats how an advertisement said, which I saw today on the East Coast Road. It said "own a house on the beautiful scenic beach road".
That might have been true earlier, but today till Kelambakkam you see very little of the scenic beach from the main road - ECR. I remember those days (around 10 years back), when right after Tiruvanmiyur, you get to see those lovely sea waters traversing with you the whole stretch up to Mahabalipuram. All I get to see today are hoardings, high-rise buildings.
I am not finding fault, everyone wants to have a slice of what ECR has to offer. Am just wondering, are we getting over-enthusiastic, and over-grandeur about everything and spoil the simple fun in our life here at Chennai. [Few more examples would be MRTS stations, flyovers, shopping malls]
