Now we know.
Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu state enjoyed some privilege during these times when power is in short supply.
Outside the city, the people and the industries suffer.
Power cuts run to two, sometimes three hours.
We got a feel of that situation in Chidambaram.
There are rusty, dirty generators outside halls, stores and large apartments.
But Thennarasu and his team makes sure the Natyanjali is well lit and has the best sound equipment.
Every year, Thennarasu improves his facility. This year he added two branded speakers.
He is also an integral part of the Fest.
