Kathipara Flyover is open for public use. We had published the aerial view of the flyover, a.k.a grade separator in our earlier post on the above subject.

As grade separators are new to Chennaites, it is still not comfortable for many motor riders to effectively make use of this infrastructure. Click here to view the Kathipara flyover map with instructions to use from all directions.

Hope this helps to ride over the grade separator !

Petrol Price cut in Chennai

In wake of falling crude oil price in the International markets, Govt. of India decided to reduce petrol and diesel prices in India by Rs.5.00 and Rs.2.00 per litre respectively. This is with effect from 00:00 hrs on 6th Dec 2008 (Midnight of 5th Dec).

While the premium petrol prices have been already reduced by petrol bunks in Chennai, after this announcement regular Petrol and Diesel are selling at 49.66 and 34.98 respectively.

It is stated by the authorities that it is only an interim measure, as the crude price faces high volatality in the markets. However the households are left with no news regarding LPG cylinder price. It is expected to get price cuts for LPG cylinders only in the next round of review of petroleum prices depending on the crude oil price movements in future.

Italian Speciality Food at Residency Towers

The Crown has an Italian Connection

Dust off your copy of 'The Godfather' and brush up on your Italian because The Crown now has an impressive Italian Menu. We're not talking the meek pastas and the bland Lasagnes that dot most menus.

Chef Satish formerly of the now defunct El Savatore has gone to great lengths to make this as authentic an experience as possible. With only the freshest vegetables and finest herbs and oils imported, this is a new experience to this City's diners!

Antipasti, Zuppe, Insalate, Primi Piatti Dello Chef, Secondi Piatti and Dolci may sound like something you’d hear in a street fight but these are the delicious, mouth-watering courses you’re likely to immerse yourself in when you’re dining at The Crown.

If you’re wondering what these tongue twisters mean, just peek into the menu which describes these delicacies with so much love, it is sheer poetry.

Slivers of garlic sizzling in olive oil, shallots caramelizing with that perfect Chicken breast, Porcine mushrooms swimming in a perfectly blended soup, the creamiest gnocchi to ever grace your palate, and the perfect marriage of Panna Cotta with Strawberry and fresh fruits are some of the Italian Wonders you’ll experience at The Crown.

With a wonderful selection of Indian Wines to accompany your meal, and the most enticing smells emanating from our Kitchens, we guarantee you’re head will be swimming after a meal here!

The Deck, open to the skyline, offers a panaromic view of Chennai, and the restaurant with its high dome and luxurious seating along with a keyboard artist will make your evening will be complete.

Petroleum and Gas Price Hike in Chennai

Govt. of India announced the hike in petrol price on 4th June 2008, following the soaring price of crude oil in the international market. The hike announced has made the petrol and diesel costlier by Rs.5.00 and Rs.3.00 respectively. As usual many newspapers and politicians started debating the components of the petrol price and finally Central Govt. recommended the state governments to reduce the sales tax to reduce the burden on the common man.

The history of petrol price hike in Chennai shows an absolute increase of 77.36% in the last 6 years (Rs.31.05 in 2002 and 57.07 in 2008). The historic price data as available on the Indian Oil website gives the following information.

Last 5 years Petrol Price change in Chennai, India

Source: Indian Oil Website.

LPG cylinders used for cooking are also not spared. The price of cylinders are hiked by about Rs.50/- to cost Rs.339.60 in Chennai which is the lowest price tag among four metros, as it appears on the IOC website. In January 2004 it was Rs.248.55 which has seen a hike of 33.63% in the last 4 years.

It is too obvious for the world community that we should do away with petroleum products and and find ways to use alternate sources of energy and fuel to replace petroleum. But none of the nations give priority to this except for their ambitious talks during such price surge in international market. Developed nations should keep their nuclear agenda away and take the issue of replacing petroleum on top priority to invent a renewable source of energy.
