A historical guide to looking around, supplemented with tales of Once Upon a City. Coupled with the city becoming the Automobile Capital and Medicare Capital of India, congestion has become the greatest threat to a city once known for its spaciousness and graciousness. The past still survives in the city to remind those that will listen, that the prosperity of today is entirely rooted in the history of Madras, the first city of Modern India. Madras Rediscovered is now in a completely revised and substantially expanded Seventh Edition, which could well be a rediscovery for readers too.
