God Save North Chennai

North Chennai, has always been in stark contrast to South Chennai’s clean paved roads, ample water supply, broad roads, and most importantly not congested and green. When one crosses the flyover near RBI, the difference between North and South Chennai would be palpable, gone would be the clean streets, the greenery and it becomes congested. And the situation becomes worse as one goes further north, to kasimedu, thondiarpet, ennore, manali, and washermanpet.

In a bid to change the situation, The Federation Of North Chennai Residents Welfare Associations and Exnora International have launched a ‘God Save North Chennai’ Campagin to highlight the problems of North Chennai.

In a press release, the Federation has said North Chennai — comprising Chennai Corporation Zones I, II and III — has always been in stark contrast to the rest of the city in terms of civic infrastructure and maintenance.
They added that the presence of the Kodungaiyur dumping ground as being a negative factor to the overall growth of the region.

I hope the government gets its act together and restores North Chennai to its old heritage and charm.

    Looks like every major city in the world is having this problem.
    South Delhi posher than North Delhi
    South Calcutta posher than North Calcutta
    South Bombay posher than North Bombay
    South Bangalore quite posh as against North Bangalore
    South NYC definitely posher than North NYC
    …. and so on…

    Is there a gravitating force that seems to attract the socialite and rich folks to Southern parts of each city?

    I like to travel in the Ennore Road by watching the beach, which come from Royapuram. If government concentrates on the North Chennai, it can also look like developing south chennai.
