If ever a place could be damned by its name, it is this; Thideer Nagar. The Tamil word Thideer means sudden. And Chennai is full of these so-called sudden Nagars
Chennai has many Thideer Nagars. The name itself is emblematic of the nature of these neighbourhoods with small houses with paint peeling of the walls and streets barely wide enough for a car to pass. This is one of them.
