Here's an interesting fact about our #SingaraChennai. Did you know that old Madras-ites could choose to take a tram or ride a ferry to get around the city? These are transportation means that we have lost since. Who will we lose next? If we're not careful, it will be our cyclists. As motor vehicles crowd them out of roads, cyclists have never been more vulnerable than they are now. Starting this #MadrasDay, let's respect cyclists, and give them the space they need to get around safely. Let's prioritise one of the most sustainable modes of transport.
The historical richness of #Madras is far & wide. Harking back to simpler times of the occasional motor car on the road! This was back in 1953, near what is now Udupi home & Mathsya restaurant in #Egmore.
In 1987, CAG conducted an investigative study into Madras' blood banks. The findings from the study resulted in more blood banks being licensed, prosecution of unlicensed blood banks and guidelines for functioning of blood banks included in their protocols.
Today, Chennai remains at the forefront of medical care; this has been through the efforts of professionals, civil society organisations, and the government which have together created the excellence in medical care that we enjoy today.

Over the years, #Madras has offered various public transportation options to her residents. These options have continued to grow with advances in technology. Let's celebrate #MadrasDay2022 by patronising #SingaraChennai & her #PublicTransport systems.
Our love of fast fashion has far reaching consequences. Find out what happens to the clothes we throw away through the eyes of Laddoo. Laddoo will buy or barter for your castaway clothes, giving them a new lease of life. He is what stands between fast fashion and these excesses ending up in the landfill. And see why North Chennai is an integral part of the second hand clothes market. These neighbourhoods might seem miles away from what you are used to. So come today and take a closer look at those people who live and work here. Their lives make for sweet and spicy tales.
From #MadrasDay2021 onwards, let us do our bit to make #Chennai an inspiration for other cities to follow by switching to #SustainableLifestyle. This can be done by taking steps like segregating waste, refusing plastic, saving water, etc. #NammaChennaiSingaraChennai
