Velachery, the common name for a locality in Chennai was actually called / known as “Vedasreni”. Realised when i saw this sign board at the Sri Dandeeswarar Temple there.

  1. WoW… Thanks for the FYI 🙂

    I’ve always wondered why someone would name a place as a cheri (slum).

    Ram: Thanks for dropping by the Blog …


  2. The term Cheri is not mean as you say slum, but it is a place where people live together. (in tamil, serri or Cheri means Serndhu iruthal or serndhu irukkum idam)

    Ram: Thanks for the info, Satish.
