Much of Chennai's charm comes from T. Nagar, its shopping capital. Most things can be bought without having to go on a long search. For me, everything worth buying is just a short walk away. Connectivity through public transport is another plus. I enjoy the buzz that accompanying the festive season. I might not celebrate all the festivals. But by living here, I get to witness the excitement generated by all of them. Also, the area is home to many good schools and parks. Another important factor is that the rentals are also less when compared to other areas. I have lived in Ashok Nagar (closer to T. Nagar) since 1994. After my wedding, I moved into an apartment in Mahalingapuram and I could not have been happier.
