A city was ravaged beyond belief in November-December 2015, when torrential floods overpowered Chennai.

Only for the city to rally and get back on its feet. Unsure at first, but stronger, gradually, and braver.

This video, shot by Lakshmi Narayan and edited by Thilakesh, is a chilling reminder of the Chennai floods. It captures images of flood waters dangerously rising, houses being submerged, people hapless and lost.

Aptly titled ‘Madras Memories’, it shows us why we cannot forget what we lost this year.
