The Jalsa and Jilpa Map of Chennai

I tried looking up the map of Chennai on Google Maps. And I got this.


It completely confused me. In my mind, the only useful map of Chennai would look like this.


I have no idea why Google is trying to confuse me.

ps: Uppolojees. This post is rather Chennai-centric and may not make sense to Non-Chennaiites.

  2. VBR,
    Thank you.
    For some reason , Akismet spam filter considers any comments with two forward slashes (“//” ) to be spam, and I usually have to rescue most of your comments from the “Awaiting Moderation” list 🙂 I wish Akismet learnt from this (as it claims to do) but it doesn’t seem to.
