I agree with you in whatever you say, except the Mayor. You know, he is really working hard to make Chennai city one of the best places to live in. For eg, he has compulsorily introduced the degradable and non degradable waste separation scheme and has uniquely identified that this process need to start right from the source, that is the people of Chennai, who use these items. He has held several health based awarness campaigns to illustrate the Chennaites about the degradable and non degradable wastes and the procedure to identify and separate them. Also under his supervision, the sanitory status of Chennai, Tamil Nadu has definitely improved, though not to great extents, atleast to some extent.
Now coming back to the main question, Yes, Chennai was called as Madarsapattinam from the Britisher's time of reign. Chennai gave them wide opportunity for trade and other prosperities and only hence, Chennai developed very fast to beocme one of the biggest Metropolitan cities in India. Due to the excellent resource that are available in Tamil Nadu and Chennai being the Capital of Tamil nadu and open for trade and communication easily has developed a lot. In fact, Chennai is now becoming a forerunner for all other state capitals in all aspects.
There is a contract to be signed with a France based company to clean the coovam river and make it flow along the city as beautiful as possible. This idea was initiated by Mr. Stalin. Almost the contract is about to be signed fully and the amount that is going to be spent is around 600 crores. If something like that happens, Chennai will become really a beautiful place. This will attract more and more companies and investors along with tourists.
But, Our people should be responsible and stop polluting the Coovam river after the cleaning procedure takes place. This is again in the hands of our people.. Really you know, Tamil Nadu has got everything, except for Good and responsible people!
