“The small scattered town, Puducherry,
Welcomes you to see its novelty.
So fondly called ‘Puduvai’ or ‘Pondy’;
Leaves you with a wonderful memory.
It was once a french territory.
And the town treasures its historic identity.
A splendid boulevard along the beach road
Encompasses the charming ‘White Town’ and ‘Heritage Town.’
‘The Grand Canal’ is passing in between these two
And cutting across the prominent roads
‘Jawaharlal Nehru street’ and ‘Bussy street.’
It’s the heart of the town.
The sunrise at the rock beach,
Mahatma Gandhi Statue, French War Memorial,
And Aayi Mandapam are eye catching.
Pedal around the grid pattern streets
To see the spectacular french colonial buildings,
Magnificent churches, the ashram, and the vinayakar temple.
A lot more attractions and stunning beaches
To stroll, shop, dine and cheer.
A universal township ‘Auroville’ is near
That instills spirituality and oneness above all
Differences among people across the countries
Puducherry – An ideal destination for a weekend getaway. “
