About this title


The history of Madras—renamed Chennai in 1996—is linked with the destiny of the country; finding the populace to be willing subjects, the East India Company’s trading venture soon became a mission to rule. The book answers many questions: Was every Englishman honest and just? Why is there no record of prominent Indians of the era? Where have the Armenians and Jews, once the backbone of the city’s commerce, gone? The author brings to light several forgotten gems of history and recounts with pride the antecedents of several Madras institutions such as the Corporation of Madras, the film industry, and the trail-blazing newspapers and magazines of the time. Engagingly told with interesting anecdotes, the book brings to life the characters who shaped the history of the city.
