lots of contradicting statements in this thread.

let me write down some facts down for you

1. Climate - Hot. (Usually 29 degrees or more)

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chennai#Climate

2. Language - Tamil is a must-know if you are planning to live in chennai. But you can survive with english / hindi. Rarely, you might meet some one who will mock you for not speaking the local language. be prepared.

There are lots of north indians in chennai. You are not the first one to visit Chennai without knowing the language - so no big deal.

There are places like Sowcarpet that are full of marwaris.

3. People - Similar to Delhi, every one will try to rip you off if you are not street smart / don't know the language. Be extra careful during finanical transactions.

The tamil spoken in chennai is usually rude / impolite compared to the tamil spoken in the other parts of the state, But, given that you don't speak the language, it hardly makes any difference

4. Food - If you are not into south indian cuiine, this will be a big problem. North Indian eateries may/may not be available depending upon which part of Chennai you live.

@TS

Very basic butler english will also suffice for most groceries and other such areas. The shopkeepers too know some basic english and some will even speak the odd broken hindi. It may be hard at first, but there shouldn't be any long term issues at all.

Post Welcome to chennai

Dear TS,

Dont worry ya... i feel you wont face much issuse in chennai. Apart from language, you will not face any cons in chennai. But it is common to all (if anyone shifting to unknown area). People in this world is common.

Dont take house Velacherry, taramani(baby colony) area. those areas are near but they are not good in rainy season.

Thiruvanmiyur, Adayar, Saidapet are good area for ur needs.

Come and join with us. Welcome to chennai

Please don't lead the topic to mess like North india V/S south india and Hindi as a national langauage and bla bla..... I just want to know the reality of Chennai.

So, please stick to the topic only. I am good in english but my wife doesn't know english. But seems area like Thiruvanmiyur is close to IT Park, so they should be mix community! Shop owners should also be well aware of toot-phooti hindi, so in this case my wife shouldn't have problem. And for monthly shopping i shall have to go mall with my wife to manage the things.

Thanks

better get a house at thiruvanmiuyr which is just 10mins walk able distance to ascendas. Else get at adyar which is 15mins in bus to ascendas. And about the price range,since its just for you and your wife better get a 1bhk which would cost 9k/month or if u still wanna get a 2bhk then it would cost u around 15k..
