Greener side of madras

As part of the Madras Week Celebrations, a set of 15-20 photographs on the trees of chennai by Rod Hudson are on display at the Parvati Art Gallery (Eldams Road). Some feature trees and others flowers or leaves.
I read someplace that trees can have a calming effect on us, lowering blood pressure and stress levels; looking at Rod Hudson's photographs, some about 3 feet in height, featuring a fully grown avenue tree, i realised that even tree pictures can have that effect! 20 mins in the gallery and i was ready to drive back home through the maddening traffic with a song on my lips.
