Beautified lamps

The Marina has periodically gone through beautification drives; the current drive is one of the more comprehensive efforts, involving cleaning up the beach and providing amenities for beach-goers. One of the side effects has been that the completely out of place deer have been removed (and that by itself adds to the beauty of the beach). The drive was supposed to be completed by the end of January 2009; there has been some frentic activity of late, so at least someone is trying.

The change of the street lights along Kamarajar Salai is also part of the beautification, it would appear. Maybe they'll get around to the other side of the road in a few days, but until then, the mismatched lamps offer a differnt kind of symmetry!

Cleaning up the city and suburbs is one thing they should take up in earnest.U ,may not believe it.One village where I worked is cleaner than the city in spite of less facilities.Some efforts are being taken by some student groups who do this job. But they mostly confine to Marina.

@ Ravindran: The villages belongs to the villagers... to whom do the cities belong?
