Step into Mylapore and you are greeted with dolls of all shapes and sizes and you feel time stands still devouring the beauty of Gods and Godesses and are transported to the celestial world. Suddenly you realize you are firmly on the ground when you notice the jostling crowd trying to peep over your shoulder almost knocking you down in the process! You move on wading your way to look at other dolls , mostly sets of wedding scenes, partying guests decked in finest clothes and accessories , cricket pitches with players clad in white ready to bowl and bat and the fielders positioned at vantage points. The whole atmosphere comes alive and so does this temple town which normally is filled with women shoppers picking up bangles and articles ranging from pouches and handbags not to speak of the regulars at the Saravana Bhavan who literally patronize the restaurant.
Whoever thinks Chennai is not a vibrant city, should certainly visit during Dushera and take a leisurely walk through the Dolls street to get the real feel of this cultural capital.
