A vacation for the soul. (blog marathon post 22)

So tonight I leave for Pondicherry. It is definitely a place I love. I lived there for two years---loads of happy memories bout the place. My third book Tea for two and a piece of cake also features Pondicherry.



We used to live very close to the Aurobindo Ashram, which is located in the 'White town area'. Pondicherry is divided into two parts---the white town area, which is very picturesque, quaint with all the streets having French names and the rest of Pondicherry which is like any other small south Indian city.

I have explored so many streets of  Pondicherry on my trusted Kinetic Honda. The streets are too narrow to drive, and the best mode of transport is a cycle or a scooter. I love the beach too, as too Auroville.

I am going to spend a few days with one of my closest friends, who lives there. An impromptu vacation. A time to rejuvenate. A time to reflect, introspect and to come back, happier, calmer and ready to face anything that the world hurls at me.

I think everyone needs a soul vacation. In a couple of hours, I leave for mine.

I will be blogging tomorrow from there--I can't let something like a vacation, come in the way of my blog marathon now, can I?

So see you tomorrow. Same place, and maybe same time :)
Till then, take care and God bless.

  3. I am a regular visitor of your blog and wait eagerly for your posts. You are such an inspiration Preeti. Thanks for motivating me to write regularly on my blog. I just finished reading 'Two cups of tea and a piece of cake' and I loved it. It has full potential of becoming a full fledged bollywood movie. My best wishes for all your future endeavors.
