All of us, sometime in our lives, wish to seek adventure.
Adventure, the likes of rafting down the Amazon, climbing the Everest or bungee jumping Down Under.
We want to travel, to far off exotic lands and meet people from all over the world.
Yes, Adventure is a wonderful thing and for me, its a street away.
Yes, I live in T.Nagar.
You want adventure? You come to Usman Road.



Amazon? Phoo-ey. Usman Road has its own Amazon, River Usman. Its a magical river, its enough if it drizzles, it will appear and is ten times more powerful than any Amazon.
You want to climb the Everest?
Try climbing on to the platforms in Usman Road. Even if you do find space (considering all the enthu entreprenuers who set up shop in the platforms due to sky-high rent rates) to put one of your feet there, you will be pushed off by either a sotta mama whos screaming at his pondatti for buying too much at Nalli or by a "Thaenmoli" whos trying to by "jens phant" in RmKV for her "morey mamaen".
Now this, is a real challenge.
Many people have given up, which is why they prefer walking smack on the middle of the road.
This is also a new form of transport. One doesnt have to walk in this road. You will automatically be transported to any shop you want by the crowds. Just make sure you know where you have to get off. Otherwise you might end up in Koyambedu. Don't tell me I didn't warn you.

Bungee Jumping is something is that is pursued by a lot of people, just for the adrenaline rush it
gives.
You want adrenaline?
Enter Saravana Stores, Bramaaandamai.
You enter that place, you can feel hopeless, helpless, confused, crazy, and a host of other emotions you never even knew you could feel before. But unless you really want to experience this major adrenaline rush, don't go in, because once you do, there's no looking back. You will
be pushed into its deepest throes by the few million fiercely fierce bargain hunters who throng that place.


If you do come back from this place in one place, and still in the mood for adventure (or have gone insane) the next thing you should try is driving down usman road.
You will experience the finest in Indian infrastructure, not to mention half the population of the
world strolling on the main road, without a care. Your car will be tapped, bonked and you will be screamed at in words you never even knew existed.
But at the end of the day, when you come back home in one piece, you can take pride in yourself. You are a survivor of Usman Road.
Beat this, Indiana jones.
