Chennai is fast becoming a travel hotspot for 2015! And if you're from the city of the Marina, the Margazhi and the Molaga Bajji, you will totally identify with this list...

1. Coffee is as essential to your morning routine as toothpaste.

2. It’s never “What’s up, dude”, it’s always “What’s up, machan!”

3. Sweet-tasting sambhar is something you don’t understand.

4. The only time a Thalaivar release isn’t as big a celebration as Diwali is when it’s bigger.

5. You secretly feel sorry for your friends in other cities who have to pay more than Rs 120 for a  movie ticket.

6. You don’t understand why people talk about the weather because Chennai has only one season, i.e, summer.

7. Which is probably why you see people wearing sweaters and mufflers when the temperature falls below 25 degrees Celsius.

8. You can’t help but feel that cities without beaches are incomplete.

9. Your haggling skills are directly proportional to the number of autorickshaws you’ve taken in your life.

10. You’re really not that offended when people call you a Madrasi because, well, you are, technically, from Madras.

11. You’re more serious when Chennai Super Kings play than you are when the Indian cricket team plays.

12. Every single couple you know had a “beach date” when they first started going out.
