Sources from Chennai stated that Chennaiites celebrated the 379th birthday of the city they call home by reconnecting with their history and appreciating the present. Meanwhile the uniqueness of commemorating such an event is that different people use their own skills to do so.



Accordingly a group of cyclists, Cycling Yogis,  rode along the East Coast Road and marked out important heritage sites along it. With Mahabalipuram being not very far away, the stretch is filled with ancient temples and heritage buildings. Ramanujar Moulana of Cycling Yogis “Everybody looks at the heritage buildings within the city and the ones outside of it are forgotten. This ride was to bring awareness to these forgotten buildings of great heritage”.

Sridhar Venkataraman who conducts the walks said “These walks are usually attended by food enthusiasts, youngsters but also people who have lived here and shopped here for a long time but completely unaware of the food scene”. Moreover another important feature is that people who usually disregard street food or food from such small joints begin to appreciate them after these walks and even children too celebrated it in various ways. Further some walked through popular heritage sites in the city, along Valluvar Kottam, Nungambakkam and Independence Day Park on a photo walk.
