Discovering Pretty Pondicherry :
Unlike much of India, Pondicherry seems to cherish its heritage rather than wiping it clean with shiny new buildings, or letting it crumble in indifference. Pondicherry’s brush with colonial history and international appeal—it was ruled by France from the 17th century to 1952, and briefly by the Dutch and the British—has always given its old-world charm a decidedly cosmopolitan flavour. The city’s official name Puducherry is a clue to how it negotiates the past. Originally known as Puducheri, a Tamil port, it was christened Pondicherry by the French, a name that remains popular.
