The new chennaiite has transformed herself/himself in many ways, especially in respect of food and sartorial preferences and more importantly in the choice of a life partner. Chinese and Thai restaurants have become the favourite haunt of youngsters with their once preferred Italian pizza taking a back seat .Similarly ,the salwar kamiz which reigned supreme for decades among college goers is out having been replaced with jeans and t-shirts. Unfortunately, young men have not much of a choice ,all that they could do was to switch over from collared shirts to T shirts.
Coming to the choice of life partners, the new chennaiite brands any one traditional or conventional as a ‘thair saadam case’ and prefers to wait either for a ‘pizza case’ or even a ‘Mexican case’ to come along to claim his/her hand.
I wonder where does all this leave the ‘old’ chennaiite like me?
