Reporter's Diary


Median trouble

While emphasising the need for road safety, the authorities themselves need to be told about the hazards posed by median blocks on roads. Recently, motorists on the road leading to the Koyambedu market and the bus stand from Inner Ring Road, had a tough time as some blocks were placed in a haphazard manner. Adding to the difficulties was the poor condition of the road. In the past, barricades were placed in the middle of the road to regulate traffic.

Music contest

Corporate employees, here is your opportunity to sing your favourite film song and win a few prizes. Instrumentalists may also participate. The third inter-corporate music competition will be held on October 22 and 23. There will be separate events for individuals and groups. Each company can send an eight-member team for the bi-annual contest organised by Big Deal. For registration call: 24474219 or email: info@bigdealmedia.com.

Raining delays

Rain means more delay along the roads in Chennai.

So, if you are an infrequent air traveller, and plan to take any flight in the next few weeks, be sure to factor in puddles of rain water that ensure you commute longer on the city roads.

With the flyover work on in full swing at Kathipara junction, the wait at the key crossroads can be frustrating, almost during any hour. That's not all.

The crowding at the Chennai airport can also mean longer queues, ahead of each flight.

So if you have a ticket validation to be done, or if you have additional luggage to check in, start another hour earlier than planned.

Token of remembrance

Sympathy can cross borders. On Monday, people in suburban Chromepet paid tribute to those who died in Saturday's earthquake.

At the Chromepet bus stand, men and women lit candles to remember the victims.

The ceremony was organised by the Chromepet New Colony Residents Welfare Association.
