Time's up! My term in Chennai is at an end. But before I left, I couldn't resist a photo with the two men of the moment in this part of India. On the right above (in all sorts of ways) is Rajinikanth and on the left, Kamal Haasan. They are the two leading Tamil film stars, and both have announced that they are setting up their own political parties.
I went down to Marina beach to have the photo taken. Once you could pose with lifesize cardboard cut-outs. Now the cut-outs are simply there to advertise the photo stalls - the celebrities are generated electronically. It's just not quite the same!
And another take on me - this from a great caricature (thanks Soham!) done by one of the students in my journalism class which also forms a farewell card. Good luck guys!
