Madras Musings

Do you know of a fortnightly called, Madras Musings? If you are not aware of its existence, now is the time to sit up and take notice. Infact, I did not take to reading the articles seriously until I became a part of the MetBlog community.

“Madras Musings – We care for Madras that is Chennai”, is devoted to the preservation of Chennai’s heritage. If history interests you, then Madras Musings offers an excellent treat on Chennai’s ancient buildings and monuments, like the Madras Sanskrit College, pioneers in various fields like Ramnath Goenka of the Indian Express, otherwise known as the Tamil Marwari, and other enriching articles that contribute towards the development and preservation of Chennai’s legacy. Articles of general interest are also included.

Madras Musings is registered with the Registrar of Newspapers for India under R.N.53640/91. The subscription charge per copy is only Rs.5/- and annual subscription is fixed at Rs.100/-. The magazine has 8 pages, with a page devoted to the Editorial section, and for quiz lovers, you can have rack your brain and crack the “Quizzing with Ram’nan”, column. Another section updates the readers with the events happening in the city and is published under the heading, ‘Dates for Your Diary’.

Published and Edited by S.Muthiah (who also wrote the article on the Guindy Industrial Estate), for ‘Chennai Heritage’, the magazine is supported as a public service by a number of organizations like Ashok Leyland, Murugappa Group, TCS, TVS Motor Copany, Sanmar, L&T, Sundaram Finance and other corporates.

    I’ve seen a couple of issues of Madras Musings and it’s a god-send for Madras Lovers. Point to be noted – They didn’t change the name to Chennai Musings. Madras will always be Madras and never Chennai!
