    There is no need to capitalize "western" or "coast".

    Re: Capitalization Question

    I wouldn't use "western".

    Madras is on the west coast of India.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you. I see how not using "western" sounds better.
