I have never been to TN. But people who work in my company (esp north Indians who work in TN) have given bad report about the people of TN.It seems they have a bad attitude towards north Indians. Speaking Tamil/English is a must else form vegetables vendors to everyone else will try to cheat u.

But still,since u have got a job, i will recommend u go and take a first hand experience and then come to any conclusion.

If one had a bitter experience that doesn't mean everyone will have the same.

@ T.S
It is better to find a North Indian neighbour or calleague who can speak tamil or atleast have experience in handling southies. You will find many as you 're in IT sector.

First you come alone, Study the situation n get usedto it. Then call your family after few months.

I'm also from chennai n I have many north indian calleagues who agrees, Chennai is the safest, economic n people friendly city unlike other metros.

been to chennai for approx. 25-30 times in last 8~10 years.

my PERSONAL experience - ignore if you have already decided to shift -

Climate (someone correctly mentioned - hot -hotter-hottest)

people - most rude you may ever come acorss (politness is very rare trait)

if you don't know thier lingo - life will be surely hell.

speaking hindi is a sin.

fair complexion with north indian looks are not welcome.

it may be easy to shift to interors of bihar, up or orissa.

sorry if i 've offended anyone's feelings but it is one of the worst shithole to live (though scenerio for professional or business growth is better than many other cities).

well, the TS is going to live in some proper chennai while the one who have give negative comments have lived/visited chennai suburban.

@TS don worry the place you are going to stay i.e thriuvamiyr,tidel park, tramani is a business place so mostly even the auto drivers knw better english so no worries. And also for buying groceries,clothers other acessories you have branded shops where you wont face any language problem.

If you ask help is hindi then ur life is really miserable as no one here knows a word of it here. English will save your head for sure.

Chennai is the best metro in India.
The problems you may face in Chennai are common in all metros but i would say the life here is much better than other metros/cities.
The one single reason you should love Chennai = THE SAFEST METRO..
There is just one reason if anyone hates Chennai and that is the HOT CLIMATE..

Its not an issue with Chennai. If you go to any metro in India without knowing the language, people will try to rip you off. Rudeness is inherent in all Indian cities. It comes out most when you look different form the majority. North Indians moving to south is a newer phenomenon than South Indians moving to North. Believe me, North Indians don't score well on the politeness scale in the south Indians book.

It's not the people of Madras/South India/India... it's just "people".

In my life, I have never seen any place that has good people with little golden halos on their heads or bad people with two red horns exclusively. Wherever you live, you will come across people who are like angels, demons and everything in between.

Your experience at a certain place only depends on how good you are at manipulating the demons to think you are a friend - at least a non-enemy, and pleasing the angels enough to take advantage of their inherent good nature. The longer you live an intense fast life, the better you get at this.

</rant>

The above rant was only directed at the other contributors bickering over regional identities.

Actually, the TS only asked about the practicalities of Chennai life. Not an abstract philosophical treatise on the reasons that drive southies to hate northies and vice-versa

To Madras (I like what the colonials did to the name), I've been only once - 6yrs ago when I was 14. The things I remember in my 2-day trip were: that awesome long chain of little smuggled goods shop in some sort of bazaar - the name escapes me. The fucking humid heat. The great fun of riding a horse on the (thorn-filled) beach where they seem to sell a lot of shells. All-in-all, a vibrant exciting lively place

People from North are moving to south for their daily bread now (because of IT/SW companies in Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai).
Before it was madrasi's moving to Mumbai for their living
The time changes very fast:)

Try if you can shift to Bangalore instead of Chennai, which is truly cosmopolitan city.
