Meera K, a former resident of Chennai reminisces her days in Radhakrishnan Nagar.

“This was the view from my house in the neighbourhood was once part of the Thiruvanmiyur temple land. The palmyra trees were the ‘fence’ making up the eastern periphery of IMPCOMS campus, which  was full of snakes. The empty land used to be rice fields. During monsoons, the entire area would flood as the clay soil would not let the water seep through. Power would go off for days together. The kerosene lamps, mosquitoes and the sound of frogs croaking away always remind me of those rainy days.”
