The beach runs from near Fort St. George in the north to Besant Nagar in the south, a distance of 13 km (8.1 mi), making it the longest urban beach in the country and the world's second longest. The Marina is primarily sandy, unlike the short, rocky formations that make up the Juhu Beach in Mumbai. The average width of the beach is 300 m (980 ft) and the width at the widest stretch is 437 m (1,434 ft). Bathing and swimming at the Marina Beach are legally prohibited because of the dangers, as the undercurrent is very turbulent. It is the most crowded beach in the country and attracts about 30,000 visitors a day during weekdays and 50,000 visitors a day during the weekends and on holidays. During summer months, about 15,000 to 20,000 people visit the beach daily. In 2010, 18 per cent of the 5,000 respondents interviewed by the Tripadvisor Survey panned the beach as being dirty</p></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-map

pro-jallikattu movement or Thai Puratchi (தை புரட்சி), refers to numerous leaderless apolitical youth groups protesting in January 2017 in large groups in several locations across the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, with some sporadic smaller protests taking place across India, as well as overseas. The chief motivation of the protest was against the Supreme Court's order to ban jallikattu (occasionally also known as sallikattu, eru taluval and manju virattu), a traditional Tamil bull-taming sport, which is held during Pongal, a harvest festival in the state of Tamil Nadu, India. The sport is conducted annually on the second day of the Tamil month Thai. The sport was banned by the Supreme Court in a decision citing cruelty to animals based on a lawsuit filed by the animal rights activists group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which asserted that the tradition violates the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (PCA).</p> <p>The first large protests occurred on 8 January 2017, when several groups, organised largely via social media, conducted a protest at the Marina beach in Chennai to revoke the ban on jallikattu which was imposed in 2014. These groups also demanded that PETA be banned from India. The protests soon gained momentum and spread all over Tamil Nadu. After several days of protests, jallikattu was finally legalized locally on 23 January when the Government of Tamil Nadu passed a bill to amend the PCA Act. As the legalization is not Indian federal law, but rather state law, there is a concern from Indian legal experts that jallikattu could be banned once again by the Supreme Court.</p> <p>The largely peaceful nature of the protests received praise from all over the country and inspired the legalization movements of several other Indian states' traditional outlawed celebrations. Despite violence on 23 January, this perception continued after the Tamil Nadu Police reported that the violence was caused by "anti-social elements" co-opting the protest, and not the student protesters themselves. The movement has been described as a symbol for Tamil pride and has largely been compared to the anti-Hindi agitations of Tamil Nadu and dubbed by many as 'Thai Puratchi'.</p></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-map field--type-text-with-summary field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Map</div> <div class="field__item"><iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d31094.988090993702!2d80.26634392159649!3d13.043722361739665!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x3a52689bb60132bb%3A0x549cf8edf62b60a!2sMarina+Beach!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sin!4v1566478658133!5m2!1sen!2sin" width="100%" height="200" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-external-link field--type-link field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">External Link</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://ta.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_%E0%AE%9A%E0%AE%B2%E0%AF%8D%E0%AE%B2%E0%AE%BF%E0%AE%95%E0%AF%8D%E0%AE%95%E0%AE%9F%E0%AF%8D%E0%AE%9F%E0%AF%81_%E0%AE%86%E0%AE%A4%E0%AE%B0%E0%AE%B5%E0%AF%81_%E0%AE%AA%E0%AF%8B%E0%AE%B0%E0%AE%BE%E0%AE%9F%E0%AF%8D%E0%AE%9F%E0%AE%99%E0%AF%8D%E0%AE%95%E0%AE%B3%E0%AF%8D" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">2017 சல்லிக்கட்டு ஆதரவு போராட்டங்கள்</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_pro-jallikattu_protests" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">2017 pro-jallikattu protests</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Location</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/location/marina-beach" hreflang="en">Marina Beach</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Category</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/category/featured" hreflang="en">Featured</a></div> </div> </div> Thu, 22 Aug 2019 12:44:45 +0000 admin 192 at http://chennai-in-focus.com Sivaji Ganesan http://chennai-in-focus.com/sivaji-ganesan <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Sivaji Ganesan</span> <div id="flexslider-1" class="flexslider optionset-default imagestyle-flexslider-full"> <ul class="slides"> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-09/DSC00834.jpg?itok=NsmvUfFr" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Sivaji Ganesan | Nadigar Thilagam Sivaji Ganesan | Nadigar Thilagam Chevalier Sivaji Ganesan" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-09/DSC00833.jpg?itok=ILGAztWN" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Sivaji Ganesan | Nadigar Thilagam Sivaji Ganesan | Nadigar Thilagam Chevalier Sivaji Ganesan | Sivaji Ganesan Statue Marina Beach" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> </ul> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sat, 05/11/2019 - 12:03</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Villupuram Chinnaiya Manrayar Ganesamoorthy, known by his stage name Sivaji Ganesan, (1 October 1928 – 21 July 2001) was an Indian actor, producer, and composer.

of Tamil Nadu Dr. M G Ramachandran cemetery on kamarajar salai, the marina beach-front road.</p> <p>Maruthur Gopalan Ramachandran (Tamil: மருதூர் கோபாலன் இராமச்சந்திரன், Malayalam: മരുതൂര്‍ ഗോപാലന്‍ രാമചന്ദ്രന്‍) (January 17, 1917 – December 24, 1987), popularly known by his initials MGR (Tamil: எம்.ஜி.ஆர்), was an Indian film actor, producer and politician.</p> <p>In his youth, MGR and his elder brother, M. G. Chakrapani became members of a drama troupe to support their family. Influenced by Gandhian ideals, MGR joined the Indian National Congress. After a few years of acting in plays, he made his film debut in the 1936 film Sathi Leelavathi in a supporting role. In the late 1940s he graduated to leading roles and for the next three decades dominated the Tamil film industry.[1] He became a member of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and rose rapidly through its ranks. He successfully used his popularity as a film hero to build a large political base. In 1972, he left the DMK to form his own party the Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (ADMK). In 1977 he became the chief minister of Tamil Nadu - the first film actor in India to become the chief minister of a state. He remained as chief minister till his death in 1987.</p> <p>In Tamil Nadu, he has a reputation for philanthropism and is considered to be one of the greatest political leaders and actors of the state. He is idolized by his followers as Puratchi Thalaivar (lit. Revolutionary leader) MGR has been honoured with the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian award.</p></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-map field--type-text-with-summary field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Map</div> <div class="field__item"><iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m14!1m8!1m3!1d62190.65410649729!2d80.21144277634082!3d13.041026150330108!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x3a5268a374c3f711%3A0xb301b23921205f1e!2sDr+MGR+Memorial!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sin!4v1529758527052" width="100%" height="200" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-external-link field--type-link field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">External Link</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M._G._Ramachandran" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">M.
