That's a lot of cycles!
I like the first yellow wall picture and the stained glass window.
The town is just the right size to make the cycle the best way to get around.
is this is new puducherry?
loved the pic of feet behind shutters! Very nice!
Pondicherry is now going to be Puducherry..ironic, because "pudu" in Tamizh is "new"...and it ought to be, technically, Puducheri, new settlement...
LOVED the feet behind the rolling shutter with the rubber sandals...and of course you know my general reaction to all your pics of shapes and forms and lines and angles!
Where was the stained glass? I thought I knew Pondicherry well, but that's something I haven't seen! Isn't the town lovely? I have very happy memories of it. My family is from a village within 20 km of the town, and many of them lived there (in Lawspet, which of course I called "Inlawspet"!), and two of them did their MBBS, and MS, from JIPMER.
The stained glass is from the Church of the Sacred Heart(Église du Sacré Cœur as the board said in French), right opposite the railway station, it is having its centenary celebration in 2008-09.
then these are pics from Puducherry :) changing the name does not change the place.
it likely does not even make a difference to the folks who live there. Just the politicians!
beautiful pics from whatever you call the place!
Pondicherry is also referred to as Puduvai in Tamizh.
Liked Use Me and An Indian touch?
You cant take photos inside the ashram itself right? dint u go to the beach? dont see any photos from there..
The only place accessable in the ashram is the samadhi and yes, cameras were not allowed inside. The only beach we saw was the one on Beach Rd, but it was not so much of a beach, we spent more time roaming around the french quarter.
