Present day situation of a city never changed since 90 yearsI read in a weekly magazine, one note from a book 'Ananda Guna Bhodini' (Tamil) issue of November 1926 about the Chennai scenery. That note expressed that the Chennai city is awaking in the early morning in the face of dustbin cart and cleaning persons till 9.00 am. By 9.00 rushing officials . Then the accidents by Jatka riksha, coach, tram etc., Besides these scenes there are pickpockets in the area of Highcourts diede and railway stations. Evening grouping in hotels and coffee clubs. Cheating in the platform shops etc., -----These are all written in the books of that period about Chennai by S.G.Ramaanujulu Naidu, magazine person of those period.
But the scene is same today also with a polished view only. I am not particular about
Chennai but many cities are like this only, never changed since 90 years passed but with some slight changes according to the scientific development.
Similarly my father, uncles used to tell us that they have gone 4 to 5 kilometers for schools by walk, they studied in street lights only. But I wonder the same thing is prevailing today also as our children are going to schools at a distance of more than 5 kilometers daily. Our children also studying in oil lamps as frequent current failure. The situation is the same but with slight changes.
