If losing weight is your goal, you can do cycling or swimming which are non impact activities. It's the impact on the ground when you land on your feet that causes shin pain. Secondly you need to change your diet.
If running is your goal, then you need to change the way you run. Join one of the several running groups in Chennai. You can access professional trainers through these groups who can aid you in running the right way. Learn more about bare foot technique. You don't have to run barefoot, but incorporating the technique will reduce impact on your joints.
Lastly shin splint is a condition that occurs in chronic runners. Since you have started running only recently, it's unlikely that you have this condition.
If pain persists beyond 5 days visit an ortho surgeon who can examine the legs and advice you accordingly.
