I have started liking these random posts….perfect way to put down the many thoughts floating around in my mind, when I feel too lazy to write a full post. 😛 So here I go again – (more…)
#Pondicherry Diaries – Part 1
2015 has been a not-much-travel year for me. Apart from a quick trip to here & there nearby, I was somehow not able to manage a proper break, away from the fast-pace and tiring life around me. And this was why, I was longing for a proper holiday. Lazy, peaceful and some good food – this was the kind of break I was interested in. So when I read the tagline (GIVE TIME A BREAK) and the following in the Official Website of Department of Tourism, Government of Puducherry, I knew where I had to go. 🙂
“If peace and a break is the most sought after, then Pondicherry is surely one of the choicest holiday destinations in South India. The town offers a unique experience with its mix of modern heritage and spiritual culture. With a predominantly historical background, Pondicherry takes one century back in time.”
Very recently I took a trip to Pondicherry (I prefer this over Puducherry, don’t know why). Since we were there for only a brief period, we decided to make our trip to Auroville a quick & brief one. In the visitor’s centre, amongst many other pictures & writings, this dream is what I could connect with the most.
