I was last in chennai in 47/48 and I spent some time at the air strip at Arkonam which is now a full blown air base . I have been trying to get some info on Arkonam town or village as it was then . May be some of our older folk will know about the history of the place .I believe there was a church there at that time but I got no reply from the present diocese web site . Any info on schools or other buildings or old maps , photos etc would be welcome . Thanks
