Does inner peace and happiness resemble a place for you? For me it is! A home away from my routine life, where I love going back repeatedly. Someone recently asked me, what is so good about this place that you love? I was blank and I had no clue about why do I love going back here. Maybe I always go back to find an answer, why? Is it the love for food? The beaches? The silence of Auroville? A cycle down for meditation? The simplicity of the people? It’s Old-World French charm? The colourful architecture? Or the warmth of the city? What is it exactly?
Indeed, it was all of it, but the most beautiful part was the love at first sight with this city. Sometimes people can’t relate to my feelings towards it, because the simplicity and the warmth this place has cannot be compared with any other place in India. I would say, there are a very few places in India who have live up to the fame, beauty and culture they are known for and this place is one of them.
You would have read a lot of blogs about places to visit in Pondicherry, things to do there, where to eat etc etc. But, I am not here to tell you all of this but share why I love being here and would love to settle down at this place someday.
People are still in that laid back life where they feel that Pondicherry is a place for only a weekend getaway, but to me this place is where I would love to stay, may be forever. For a long time now, in my fairy tale world, I decided to get my own place, somewhere in the French town of this city, with a beautiful little corner Café Book Boutique. Dreaming about it every day and thinking about it for long, have made me fallen for this city even more.
A relaxed 5am sea facing coffee at Le Café Rock beach while looking at the dancing waves and watching people doing early morning Yoga Asanas is something I would want my everyday start with. While of course there is much heard hype about this place Le Cafe, but it’s beauty in experience, location and the time you spend with yourself sitting here makes it more incredible.
