6 Offbeat Things to Do in Auroville

Auroville and Pondicherry are rapidly rising in the charts of popular travel destinations amongst the Indian youth. This could possibly be a result of the outrageous ‘French connection’ propaganda of the Pondicherry Tourism board, and the never-ending barrage of pictures taken in front of the same bright-yellow walls of famous buildings in the French quarter.

Quit a superb job late in 2014 [Read: How I Quit My Job to Travel the World NOT!], to take up an assignment in a small heritage town in South India, and I thought things would just fly on from there.
