Chennaites are tweeting and taking to Facebook to tell their friends to stay safe while their states fight it out. Here are some of the reactions that are thought proving and also ironical!
Welcome to India. We share Indus with Pakistan but we won't share Cauvery among ourselves. Stop infighting.#CauveryIssue
