Holding a street based fest isn't easy - though we have been at it for over 17 years!
Streets challenge you.
So our contractor who puts up the street lamps and main stages, calls to say he won't be able to sink the street lamp posts.
We rush to East Mada Street and work out a new plan.
Why do we hold our events - some 30 plus - on the mada streets? Because this is a religio-cultural-social space.
And the arts is integral to it.
Not large businesses which have taken over the streets like Ranganathan Street in T. Nagar.
Our wish - free Sannithi Street square on weekends and hold open air performances!
