Chennai is like any other Indian city for the average middle-class indian guy. Typical conservative culture. The same rules that you followed in nagpur would apply here. There would be minor cultural shocks, but noting dramatic.You are expected to dress conservatively and keep unique ways of personal expression to the minimum.

If you are into partying late into the night. Chennai doesn't offer the same conveniences as bangalore. Pubs/bars close at 10 and you might see more policemen paroling the streets. They may pull you over for no reason. This can be good or bad the way you look at it -- if you are a proponent of free-speech and freedom, you might find this invasion of your privacy and rights troubling, on the other hand, its the thing that make Chennai the safest Metro.

I am a north indian married guy, my wife doesn't know and understand English, so my in-laws saying we are going to have to face a lot of trouble. < image > Still correct me if I am wrong and do share your views.
If she is the typical Indian housewife and she is open to a change of setting, she could pick up tamil in 2 months. If she has a negative attitude towards learning a new language, she could find it tough. I have seen a lot of north indian Ladies who don't speak Tamil.

Also guide me about the average rent of a 2BHK flat around Ascendas IT Park and near by area within the reach of 15-20 minutes

Thanks and Regards

Chennai was supposed to be the cheapest metro. But all that have changed in the past few years. Now, its more expensive than Bangalore when it comes to rent and food. You have to pay at least 10 months rent as deposit to get a flat. And the rent will be atlest 8K for areas near your office, since its the main IT area.

Chennai is the Cheapest, Safest metro in india.... when people migrate from south india to north india they learn hindi... like wise u must be prepared to learn Tamil... u cant expect the whole world to speak hindi right.... a number of north indian people lead successful and peaceful lives in chennai knowing Tamil... I ve even seen many punjabis too speaking good tamil... so dont worry...

Having said that, Hindi is our national language, FYI, so yeah, not just south Indian, EVERY Indian must know Hindi. If you want to call yourself an India, agree to or atleast respect the constitution. As far as learning local languages is concerned, it might be an icing on the top, but can you please explain how can any state/region call itself a part of India without accepting and learning the national language. Are you going to go to new mexico and parts of texas in US and say, you dont want to learn english and just spanish coz thats whats spoken there? Well, good luck with that

Guys, let's stick to the Topic instead of arguing about status of Hindi as official/national language of India. Am sure, the TS is well versed in English and can make do with it

PS : any subsequent Off Topic post discussing about Hindi/Tamil/any other language will be removed.

Typical stereotype mentality reply from Northies here. Things will never change. No point in arguing abt tht. Even i had horrid time in bhopal, MP as i knew very few words in hindi. It happens, i dont judge. I hope u Northies with ur attitude dont end up breaking up India.

Anyways,

Try staying near by places like Adyar, Thiruvanmiyur, Indira Nagar or even Taramani/ OMR area places. But, mainly check for the water qlty before moving in, coz places in thiruvanmiyur and some OMR areas wud have salty water.

There are tons and tons of Hindi speaking people in tht area coz of IT, Will language be an issue for ur wife? obviously it will, if she doesnt speak English. She can pick up few things and surely manage.

For Groceries and stuff u have Reliance Fresh, Foodworld , Nilgiris and other places, whr u wont have language problem.

If u r so adamant tht u will live only with ur community, Try out Sowcarpet, the whole area is full of hindi speaking people. But its in North of Chennai. Taramani is in deep south of chennai.

Yeah, Punjabis never complain, they speak beautiful Tamil, they mingle with the local population. Esp the sardarjis owning the Motor spare parts shops

Safer city... I agree, and raping isnt a passtime here, unlike in North.

People are relatively more disciplined, best place check tht out is in Railways.

besant nagar has ample no. of northies even adayar region in particularly too ...northie concentration is way high here even (from experience @spencers in adayar region ..lotsa aunt-unkils speak hindi there .) moreover a part of besant nagar near ramoji house has CPWD quarters ...means mixed population ...
