Each story brings out an honest revelation of how the author is/was touched by Madras. The reader then gets drawn into the various facets of the city that has a character of its own, without an iota of judgement by either.
Maybe I would have easily liked Madras, as most of the writers fondly remember the city that has in some parts shed its identity to make way for Chennai. While the stories present some poignant moments, the words that touched me most were "home is a place with no regret, even if longing is still what makes it what it is" - Vamsee Juluri in "My Mother's Madras."
