Corrections and Clarifications

The caption of a standalone photograph titled "Beast of Burden" (Chennaicity, May 23, 2010, page 2) was "No Escape: A bullock, weighed down by theload in its cart, trudges up a road at Salt Quarters in Chennai." It's SaltCotaurs. The word "Cotaur" is the Anglicised version of the Telugu word"Cotauru" meaning "godown". There was once a godown for storing salt bags inthis area (on the bank of the Buckingham Canal, north of Chennai Centralrailway station), and the loading station Salt Cotaurs.
