New book on Chettiars released

A new book on the Chettiar community called ‘A Chettiar Album’ was released on Sunday evening at the MRC Centre in MRC Nagar. This book is edited by city historian S. Muthiah and M. Meyyappan Jr. and is largely of photographs of yesteryears which show the little details of the life of this community – the clothes they wore at home and outside, the everyday stuff they used in daily life and so on.

Muthiah says that a majority of the photos were recovered at shops that sell antiques of the Chettinad region  and some from families, from their personal albums.
