      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description
    Madras Then is an extensively researched collection of pictures showcasing the city as it once was. From images documenting the construction of the artificial Madras harbour to the fateful day when the German cruiser Emden attacked Chennai (making it the only Indian city to have sustained a direct attack during the Great War). The beginnings of modern Madras culture have been well documented with alluring pictures of some of Indias earliest businessmen, industrialists, parliamentarians, actors and actors turned politicians.

    This book features images sourced from the private archives of the citys prominent families with some of them being published for the first time. Be it politics, sport, movies, education or even the independence struggle, Madras then features pictures and paintings of almost every event and sociocultural phenomenon that has left an indelible mark on Indian history. Awarded the title of the best metro by a magazine survey conducted in 2013, Chennai is a city of dichotomies home to some of Indias glitziest malls and retail chains and yet a city where the streets still come alive with kolam drawing competitions. The proud base of some of the countrys premier software companies but where the highly educated techie employees still enter office with vibhuti on their foreheads. A place often written off as being conservative but located in the region that hosts the largest festival of transgenders in the country. Chennai Now perfectly captures the many ironies of Chennai, featuring aerial photographs (unpublished thus far) of the city that document its changing skyline. A fascinating insight into India's most livable city.

    Brings back old memories of the City. Nice compilation.

    I bought this book at a price one cannot resist.

    The compilation of pictures, especially that of old madras, is something that one could cherish. The pictures are accompanied with good annotations. Although, there is nothing much to brag about Chennai in its new avatar. The size of the book is quite big and makes it a perfect coffee table book.

    This book might interest anyone who wish to look back at how charming the Chennai city was.

    Decent Content

    Book and print quality is good! But the content is decent. Somewhere I felt I know and have seen more and better pictures than what were there. not really great information for what I have paid.
