We’re Mad About Madras

Ever though that urban cities would have days praising their inception? Well, Madras or today’s Chennai has a day celebrating its birthday!
The founding day of Madras is thought to be August 22, 1639.

We got the name Chennai just in 1996. Until then it was Madras, accepted to be gotten from Madrasapattinam which is a fishing village north of Fort St. George. An intriguing clarification is that it could have been gotten from a fisherman named Madrasan. We South Indians are as yet being gathered under the expression “Madrasis” which evolved as Madras.

You may know Madras as so many things. For some it’s one of the hottest, most humid, most intolerable cities while for others, it’s home, it’s safety and it’s freedom. No matter what you may know Madras for, it is undoubtedly one of the most important cities in India.

Madras, a clamoring city acclaimed for its cultural roots and manufacturing prowess, has something to offer for everybody. Many people know Superstar Rajinikanth, Viswanathan Anand and the Mozart of Madras — A.R.Rahman. Be that as it may, it has significantly more to offer — the Authentic Filter Coffee, the Beautiful Marina Beach, India’s first Bookshop at Higginbothams, Hot and steaming Idlis, the Madras Music Season, Countless sanctuaries, Automobile Industry.

Madras day are usually loaded with exercises that motivate community to concentrate on its past and present.

So here is a small token of madness for Madras.

What is Madproject?

Madproject started as a self initiated concept to exercise our creative muscles, we don’t seek any monetary benefit from this initiative.

Few projects can be really fun and challenging when we collaborate together, Madproject is one of those kind. We realised that the best teamwork comes from people who are working independently toward one goal.

MadProject is not restricted to just the usual art forms such as pen and paper. Do feel free to be as creative as possible in any medium that excites you. So let those creative juices flow, creating great art in any medium ranging from photography to your kitchen experiments. So feel free to explore our themes in any method that excites you.

Why?

These might not pay for themselves directly, but they do eventually pay off.

By doing things you like, and spotting how to do that, you’re learning something new. You’re pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone, and you never know where it might take you.

When you support people and encourage them, you’ll be inspiring them to see the best in themselves.

The whole idea is to gather creative ethusiasts’, where we can feel enlivened, taught, associated, and above all, cherished!

If this idea really excites you, then do shoot a mail to getmad@madproject.in, we will keep you counted.

Thanks for your time 🙂
