A drive round the town to see the Municipal Buildings, Museum, High Court buildings, Colleges, business centre and new residential part. Then to Adyar, the Theosophical Society Headquarters and the home of Annie Besant for many years. Another religion among the many in India, their slogan is “There is no religion greater than the Truth”, and in the Main Hall there is a panel depicting Jesus Christ, one for the Parsee, one for Hindu, and one for the Buddhist, one for the Mohammedan and one for Freemasonry – one to suit all corners. At night we went to the two most exclusive clubs in Madras, in company with Mr. And Mrs. Bruce Scott, The Adyar Club and then to the Madras Club which claims to have the second longest bar east of Suez.
