Urbanizing villages

View from Floor 9 of a residential complex at Padur village, near Chennai. Information Technology companies that mushroomed in suburban Chennai over the past decade and more, have given rise to extensive construction activity in rural areas around metropolitan Chennai.
Perungudi, Sholinganallur, Siruseri, Padur, Kelambakkam are the new Chennai suburbs with high-rise residential buildings and shopping malls. Till a decade ago they were villages on road to Mahabalipuram .Over 50 residential projects are coming up along OMR, a 30-km six-lane stretch that is called the IT Corridor.
My Take on the theme - 'Urban' for PhotoSunday
