  • Description

    Degree Coffee by the Yard is the story of a city four hundred years in the making, a city that has become the icon of the Coromandel Coast. It is the story of Madras and Chennai, two cities on the either side of the same coin.

    Summary of the Book

    Renamed Chennai in 1996, Madras has had a history that is as aromatic as the coffee it is world famous for. Marked by fascinating personalities who live in it, Madras has always enjoyed a rich and colourful presentation of itself. After the Independence of India, Madras was shackled by battles for equality, the demolition of unjust caste structures, and a remarkable spirit of secularism, all of which become a part of its history. A stalwart port on the Coromandel Coast, Chennai has since become a new city, one that embraces its past. Whether in its delicious cuisine, doused in the finest of South Indian cuisine, or in the little joys her people enjoy in playing cricket, tennis or chess, Chennai always presents her best to the world. And in her own subtle way, she challenges the world to find the message of peace and love anywhere else but in the aromatic cups of coffee one can only find in her streets.
