This collection of 38 tales, one for every decade, is a personal tribute to Madras, 375 years old in 2014. These vignettes of an untenanted sandy spit that grew into one of the great metropolises of the world range from romantic Nostalgia to Crime, from Sport to Journalism, and from Language to modern-day Politics. The tales, some serious, some tragic, some humorous, some descriptive, help, as a collection, to create both a portrait and a reflection of the character of a city which has, over the years, deserved better. They are tales that may help Madras that is Chennai gain a new recognition; or they may, in the end, just be tales that were fun to read.
