August is a monsoon season plus covid pandemic is going on, so there is very less options available in India to visit. So I chosen Pondicherry land of cafes and French cuisines.
Pondicherry (Pudducherry) is a beach-side union territory located in Tamil Nadu. Previously until 1954, Pondicherry was established by French colonies. but now we can witness the old Bouganvellia-draped French-style houses, churches, and even the newly built French-style shops, bright-colored cafes, and restaurants with pristine beaches make this place a fairy tale affair.
