The grandest house on TTK Road, by quite a way. This is 'Mithila'. Built in 1931 by a Maharashtrian family that had settled in Chennai, when this was known as Mowbray's Road. It's amazing that this stately residence has survived. There once must have been many such grand buildings in this part of the city. On TTK Road, this is the last one standing.
The house is set well back from the road and at a jaunty angle to it. The world 'Mithila' appears in Devanagri - not Tamil - script at the crest of the frontage.
Inside, as far as I can tell from a peep through the window, it feels as it little has changed since the building was first lived in more than eighty years ago. Long may it last!
A term in chennai the last house standing has a colonnaded entrance eaves and sharp angles keep it up. All are getting the better peep through the window for the more changed the charming the long may it last.
When I read title post I am little bit confused that what it is the meaning of that term but when I wrote this whole post I am understand that why this word is used.
