Mylai: The Peacock city

By Avyuktha Sreenivas

A city filled with food and fun
Festivities galore
Temples fill its crowded streets
When you live in Mylapore
When you look on each side of the street
You will definitely see
Flowers, vegetables, dosais, idlis
Some shops selling sweets
If you’ve just come from another place
You just have to slightly gaze
The kolams during festivals
They’ll make you feel amazed
And if you have really experienced it all
It will make you say “Hey…
This peacock city is the most
Cultural place in Chennai!”
