MTC offers an evening crush on Anna Salai

This scene is not an exception, but the norm at P.Orr and Sons stop outside The Hindu on Anna Salai. Is it inevitable that people bound for destinations in the North, even as close to this point as Parrys, have to endure such low quality and risky travel? We think not.

MTC and the Tamil Nadu government make it easier for pickpockets

MTC and the Tamil Nadu government make it easier for pickpockets. This is the evening rush hour outside the new Secretariat on Anna Salai.

This is the result of insufficient investment in Chennai’s bus network, and the policy of the Tamil Nadu Government to run it primarily as a resource for the State Government to control mobility, maintain an organised base of workers (who can be manipulated to engage in political protests) rather than as a service to the people.
