Chennai is hot, dusty and mosquito-ridden – said Viju Mahtaney in his brief for luxury apartments in the posh Boat Club road neighbourhood.  A testament to urbanization in India today. Chennai has a river that is clogged with sewage that breeds mosquitoes. Traffic and construction create unending dust and pollution -  and buzzing entrepreneurship needs neighbourhoods like Boat Club Road to attract the talent and investment that churns the wheels of the city.
