DIGESTING SUMMERS IN MADRAS,
THE 60s & 70s

60 और 70 के दशक में
मद्रास की गर्मियों को पचाना

60-70களில் மெட்ராஸின் கோடையை சமாளித்தல்

— Essay by Karpagam Rajagopal

From the minute you woke up, it was as though the sun had sucker-punched you in the solar plexus. Perspiring pre-and post-shower was the norm in the glutinous humidity, and naps were impossible unless you slept on bare mosaic tile. Family visited for the summer from up north every summer, but even when it was just my grandparents, who shared their spacious home with my parents, aunts, and uncles, and cousins, it was rare for the kitchen to ever be closed for a meal.
