My first memories of Vandalur Zoo date back almost 20 years ago, when our Class I teacher took us out for a picnic. I’ve been there 3 or 4 times since then. Last time I visited the beautiful place was in August last year with friends from College (Can’t believe it’s already a year, since then).
Remember Sayar Banerji (now a family man) taking 183 pictures of the same tiger to get the perfect shot (the shot worth 182 failed attempts).
The Zoo with an entry fee of Rs. 10 (or 20, I don’t remember), is an underestimated hangout destination among the youth of Chennai, mainly because of its distance from central Chennai. It takes about an hour form road if you’re lucky with the Traffic.
