Parantharami Mani works for the Central Government. For the ESIC. His day job keeps his busy. But every day, he delved into the World Wide Web to locate all sorts of old photos of Madras that is Chennai. And posts them online.
So we worked with him this Festival to locate and print 20 great and rare visuals of Mylapore.
You can enjoy these photo prints at the base of the chariot of Sri Kapali Temple. Photographer R Saravanan did the hard work and got up this show.
At the end of Day One evening, at least 2000 people would have seen this exhibition.
Thanks Mani. We admire your passion and commitment!
