Watching the sunrise at the beach when my city was calm, was rare to me!
Madras is bustling city, with an extremely hot and humid climate almost throughout the year and even worse, it is densely populated.
Most people in my city are from other states because it is an IT and manufacturing hub in South India. It has people from all over the country as well as from abroad. It was during some festival, long holiday season if I am right, the city was calm. Everyone had left to their native and very few of us had the privilege to expreience the rare cool breeze and the freedom of empty roads.
