Was on a flash trip to Chennai on Thursday. I was on the way to AshokNagar from the Airport.The traffic congestion was very high especially at the Kathiparai junction because of the flyover construction. Saw some huge and new IT parks near CIPET( I know I haven’t been to this part of Chennai even during my trips).

Quite long ago, I used to stay at Ekattuthangal . That was when I had migrated to Chennai maangaram from the Rock City. It was a very small house that I had rented and used to stay with my friend. There used to be a small bridge at Ekattuthangal. Whenever there was heavy rain(heavy rain and chennai used to be oxymoron’s then.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ , this bridge used to overflow and sometimes it takes over a day to subside. There was nothing great close to this place except for Kasi Theatre and the Saravana Bhavan.

While I was crossing Ekattuthangal now,I was pleasantly surprised. There is a huge construction going on and when I looked at the hoarding it says “Hilton”. I cant believe a Hilton is being constructed right at Ekattuthangal. The board says it is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2008. I felt so good when I saw something like a Hilton coming up in this place. A place where the city of Chennai welcomed me first.
