Chennai Thiruveedhi Amman Koil Street
19th April, 2017
Thiruveedhi Amman Koil Street, Mandaveli has two sides to it. Today. One is filled with litter, potholed and often a place to park cattle too. The other was not so better than this. Till, the community on this side decided to take charge of the area and make a change.
Thus, one end of this street that lies west of R. K. Mutt Road, behind the BSNL office campus is a clean and green street now. How did this transformation happen? K. Sundarraman, a resident here since 2000, recalls, “When I first moved into my apartment, there weren’t too many flats. Ours was the first on the street and we had a lot of independent homes. There weren’t too many civic issues till 2005 when the problems started”.
