A place called Nostalgia

Sundays are for leisure activities and also NO activity! A day to just do as you wish. So, we wish to indulge in nostalgia this Sunday. Allowing ourselves to be transported back in time to a Madras that was seemingly simpler. Less traffic, less noise, less people. We mention many a ‘less’ but the memories are all the ‘more’.

Remember the friendly Amby? The car that could fit everyone if it decided to?! The car that could be driven in lieu of a workout? (!) The car that didn’t care about being sleek and glossy? (!) The car that wasn’t a lean mean motor machine! It was more like a stout and robust family member you could always rely on. A comfortable car that made you feel quite on top of things. (This is the ‘Madras’ in Chennaigaga that’s talking, by the way!)
But we are not really talking about a car, are we? We are speaking of all the things it stands for and the memories it evokes.

Memories of people enjoying a car together. Of families, extended families, friends and outings. Of picnics, long road trips and an all-you-can-carry amount of luggage. It is in fact, a classic Madras sight.
Yes, nostalgia is a fine sentiment to indulge in on Sundays, especially. A day when you can stand still and not move forward (unless you want to).

Check out the whole collection and sign up with us to stay tuned to more Madras and Chennai sentiments!

We have mousepads in black that hint at the black and white depiction that are typically old memories, t-shirts in blue that make the design spring forth in a contrast white, and ceramic mugs (capacity around 310 ml) that carry the same artwork in red for that dash of colour that sets it apart. Chennai and Madras souvenirs is a niche that’s both loveable and necessary. Keepsakes and memorabilia are equal to joy.
