The Swedish vessel, Gotheborg, moored off the Marina in Chennai.
A lovely sight awaited beach goers on Wednesday morning. This tall ship, a replica of an 18-century vessel, was anchored a few hundred metres from the shore. The view seemed to show an idea of what Madras Beach must have looked like a few hundred years back.
Took this pic at about 6.30 in the morning.
As I kept clicking away, the words from the song in Puratchi thalaivar's movie, Ayirathil Oruvan, `Adho andha paravai pola vazhavaendum...' came to mind.
