West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee arrived in Chennai on Wednesday on a rather quaint visit -- she will attend the birthday celebration of acting Bengal governor La Ganesan's elder brother on Thursday.
Didi utilised the excursion to meet Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin at his home on Wednesday evening, bringing with her a trove of gifts for the family.
