HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009 for Made in Madurai(Madurai Times) Blog visitors

I was analyzing what I have done last year and what I am planning to do next year - as I was approaching the end of the year. My 2008 was great and lot of things has happened and changed. All personal stuff and I am proud of it.

While I was doing that, I also went through the Madurai Times (Made in Madurai)blog for all the months of this year 2008. I was very much depressed and kind of disappointed with no positive change at all in 2008 for Madurai, except for just news!

Only News and very less action in 2008(Positive):
1) Madurai IT park news were out all this year - Ilandaikulam and Vadapalanji
2) Madurai International Airport.

Things happenned in Madurai 2008:
1) Violence in and around - even today, as I write this.
2) Collectors changed frequently - Udhayachandran, SS Jawahar and now Seetharaman.
3) Madurai Real Estate boomed
4) Madurai High court; Madurai Passport Office - good and bad comments
5) Madurai online presence is increasing
6) More SEZs are promoted - Farmers protest
7) More businesses into Madurai
8) More software companies coming into Madurai - incl HCL, Satyam bought land for future branch
9) Rise in prices of all commodities
10) More builders and construction companies in Madurai
11) Few more Hotels in Madurai
12) ELCOT active in Madurai - IT park work started.
13) CII Madurai Chapter working hard to give positive image
14) Election
15) Cable war
16) Madurai gets 610 acres for Airport
17) More rowdies and gangsters floating in Madurai and having upper hand
18) Entrepreneurs cropping all around Madurai

Movies based on Madurai:
1) Mattuthavani
2) Subramaniapuram
3) Paruthi Veeran
4) Pazhani
5) Seval
and more...
