Eyesore on Mount Road

Victoria Technical Institute, is a venerable old institution of Chennai. That is every one has heard about it and seen it, but not many go there for shopping. Despite its name, the Institute is basically a crafts shop selling handicraft works of the state. It was written about in Chennai Metblogs earlier.

Probably the authorities thought that it needed to make its presence felt. It was given a coat of garish Green colour paint last month. You can never miss it now. It is the new Eyesore on Mount Road.

    OMG…what’s it with this shade of green anyway? Didn’t the LIC get the same colour, too?

    It is part of the “Green Chennai” campaign initiated a few years back by then mayor Stalin. Good to know this campaign hasn’t been forgotten.
