Ecological Sunday in Chennai

Residents of Rome are familiar with the total pedestrianization of the centro especially in spring and summer. Now comes this initiative from the citizens of Chennai (Madras to those who still can't get over the name change) to reclaim space for the pedestrians of the city. The exponential growth in personal vehicles has made walking 'a hazardous activity' in many cities. Crossing the road anywhere, even at a zebra crossing, is risky. A bold step forward by the organizers of this event to focus attention on traffic and pollution.
