Description

About The Book

The buildings of Chennai over the past century and a half have diverse and interesting forms and expressions. They do not easily fit under labels such as colonial architecture, modern architecture and critical regionalism or can entirely be explained through concepts like colonialism, identity, nation, region and hybrid. This book attempts to record and interpret the pluralistic range together for the first time. The particular experience of modernity in India has been articulated explicitly in other fields. In this book, it is taken up as the idea of Indian modernity to include and understand the architecture of Chennai.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
