Triplicane Addiction – Madras, Tamilnadu

Niranjani, a street photographer, recently explored Triplicane, one of the oldest localities in Chennai. Triplicane still carries the flavour of ‘Madras’ in its narrow, bustling lanes, old buildings and cultural richness. Triplicane is one of the few areas where cows casually amble alongside humans in the congested streets. Read on, to explore this fascinating locality through Niranjani’s lens.

In Niranjani’s own words…

“I was walking alongside a cow. We were surrounded by two-wheelers, autos and two buses wedged in a road that was just wide enough to accommodate them. It was a typical Triplicane traffic jam.

My soul mate was nestled in my arms, waiting for a gap in the traffic jam, through which he could escape into the narrow lanes of Triplicane and capture excited young faces, vibrant houses, roadside idli sellers and families enjoying a breezy evening on their front porch. Yes, my soul mate is none other than my camera, and here are some unforgettable sights that Triplicane has to offer.”
