It was the construction of Fort St George as

The birth of Madras

the first English fortress in India in 1644 that led to niore settlements and development of a city much later. The East India Company had first purchased a piece of coastal land (for strengthening their business) called channapatnam from a Vijayanagar chieftain Damerla Chennapa Nayaka. The area (where the fort was built) known as George town then grew to become a commercial hotspot called Madras. It is widely believed that it was on August 22, 1639 that the sale was done, hence the day is celebrated as Madras day every year. The fort now houses the Tamil Nadu legislative assembly among others.

Here's a dish that has a history as intriguing as its taste. A Kashmir delicacy, it is believed to have originated from the regal Mughal families who holidayed in the cool hills. The name suggests that the dish may have had Persian origins (Roughan in Persian means Fat and Josh means heat), translating to something cooked in oil in

Mutton Rogan Josh

intense heat. Alternate theory is that Rogan means red colour deriving from the red chillies used. There are several versions to this dish, the most common one followed by Kashmiri Brahmins uses a no onion/ no garlic policy and also has 'Ratanjot' - a root found in Kashmir to add the natural red colour to the dish. Chef Satish Reddy from Paprika, Courtyard by Marriot shares his secret recipe for this glorious Indian dish.

Celebratingbrotherhood! This August, India will gear up to celebrate Raksha Bandan wherein sisters will tie Rakhi (a sacred thread) in the hands of their brothers to celebrate their sibling love. The origin of Rakhi has many interesting tales - it is said that it began as tradition between husband and wives wherein wives would tie a scared thread in their

â&#x20AC;˘ D[-36

husband's arm to protect them during wars. Legend goes that Alexander's wife tied a rakhi to Porus asking him to protect her husband during war. Rabindranath Tagore used it for his independence marches to spread Hindu-muslim brotherhood. Till death does part us...

The tying of sacred thread Thaali (in tamil) or Mangalsutra (Hindi) is an important Hindu ritual that denotes the commitment between husband and wife. This custom is said to have become popular only after the 6th century AD. Before which, a yellow protective cord known as 'kankanabandhana' was tied around the wrists of the couple to show their commitment. Down south, the thread is dipped in turmeric as it is considered auspicious and is also antiseptic to ward off pollution.

Where Gods live together.... This August, our beloved city will celebrate her foundation day and what better way to celebrate the occasion than by raising a toast to our diversity. Here are some zintezresting facts about the must-visit holy sites around Chennai.

.. .





Santhome church The grand St.Thomas Basilica is built over the tomb of Apostle St.Thomas (only three sites across the world have this honour). It is said that the apostle went hiding in the Little Mount and finally settled on the Parangi Malai (St Thomas Mount) as it offered solitude for his spiritual life. All three spots have become mustvisit spiritual sites today.

Triplicane's big mosque Big Mosque, built in 1795 by the family of Muhammed Ali Khan Wallajah was built entirely of granite. Yes, it has no wood or metal. And hear this! The shrine showcases a symbol of secularism -a chronogram engraved by an Hindu - Rajah Makhan Lal Khirat, the private secretary to Nawab Wallajah.

The modem demons, come not with horns, but with wires and lies. Oh lllIln, and your machine, Don't make me your prisoner.

Let me find my stories, Hidden in the grey clouds, Let me listen to the songs, Of birds and the whizzing bees.

Let me live my life, Cradled in the arms, Of the creator's best, With infinite love for aI/ his work,

Sasikumar Ramachandran
