Madras Day – The Founding day of Madras is considered as 22 Aug 1639.It was on this day that a piece of land (where Fort St George stands today) was transacted by East India Company. The deal took place between Francis Day, his ‘dubash” Beri Thimmappa and their superior Andrew Cogan with the local Nayak rulers.

In 2005 three people – S Muthiah ,Sashi Nair and Vincent D’Souza joined together to celebrate 22 Aug every year as Madras Day . Three others joined this idea later and now it is celebrated as Madras Week.
