Under the name Madras, the Indian city of Chennai has made appearances on the NBC television series Heroes, which aired from 2006 to 2010. Chennai was featured in the beginning of the pilot episode of the show, "Genesis", and was the home of teacher Mohinder Suresh as well as his father Chandra Suresh (although Chandra originally hailed from Bombay according to the episode "1961"). Mohinder Suresh taught a lecture at Chennai University promoting the advances of evolution in relation to genetic research, citing the adaptability of cockroaches as the pinnacle of man's evolution. He even made the uncomfortable comparison of cockroaches to God. After the lecture concluded, Mohinder's colleague, Nirand, had the unfortunate duty of informing him that his father had been killed in New York City. The two walked the streets of Chennai back to Mohinder's apartment. [1]
