Today we fly.
Not very far;
Just over 550 km (350 miles) across the southern tip of the Western Ghats, Deccan Plateau and Eastern Ghats.

From the Arabian Sea to the Bay of Bengal, India’s opposite coast.

To Chennai, state capital of Tamil Nadu, and the Madras of former times.

A friend has an installation on show in the city.
