Youtube gives you the power to broadcast yourself, with none of the licensing fee hassles and spectrum problems that conventional broadcasting involves.
That’s what some residents of a locality called Jeeva Nagar in the suburb of Kattupakkam, close to Mangadu and Poonamallee have done.

The Hindu’s Property Plus has a feature written by me on the residents of this layout using the Right to Information Act successfully. It is online here.
