Pondicherry – The Land of Tomorrow Pondicherry – The Land of Tomorrow
With beautiful paved roads and trees shading the whole area, I walked across the road only to be met by a fellow pulling a rickshaw. He came up to me and asked where I wanted to go. Seated in the rickshaw I tried to bask in the glory of this fascinating city I had come to – Pondicherry . Earlier a French colony, Pondicherry today is Union Territory in India. Pondicherry literally means new village. The entire city is based on the pattern of French construction with a grid pattern.

Hochiminh City attractions
Also known as Saigon, Hochiminh City is the largest by area in Vietnam. This financial as well as economical capital is today among the most wonderful towns of Vietnam. Climatically, it is a comfortable destination between December and April because of the dry climate. Most travelers start to arrive in November only. This time is actually the hottest, but nights go cooler facilitating great party spirits. Just avoid the time from May to October as the Hochiminh city witnesses wet as well as the typhoon season. I landed at the largest international airport Tan Son Nhat in Vietnam, which is at 8 km from the downtown. I had booked my stay at the Blue River Hotel on the Pham Ngu Lao street at USD 30 for the room with the views. If you decide to stay here, do not go for its taxi service to airport,  [...]

Memoirs of Paris
I lust for Paris as I know it, a small slice of the city of light. Perhaps I am just a bit homesick and missing what I consider my spiritual home, but that is impossibility, for I am here in Paris. This gut-wrenching feeling hits me every time I return here, as if the city I once embraced lovingly is now giving me the cold shoulder, as if it resents me. It hits me every single time. I have lived here and left, and re-visiting is like sitting down for dinner with an ex-lover; you can try and try, but the relationship will never be as good as it once was. Emily and I have been here for four days. Four days…how time flies when you are shaking off the after-effects of jet lag and swimming in the mutual love for one another. I almost didn’t notice that our chambre à deux personnes had just  [...]

Paris as you’ve never seen it
Grabbing a hunk of lamb, the butcher chopped it up with a certain deftness that made me want to laugh out loud, but I somehow resisted the urge to do so thinking that my friend the butcher would take grave offense to it. Before me what was only moments ago a slab of meat is now tiny little squares of raw goodness waiting for the loving touch of cook, and a sideways swipe of the  knife later, the lamb was wrapped into a package, I am on my way. Moroccan brochettes, here I come. Paris is the city of romance and of dreams, where every corner has a tale to tell and it’s somewhere you can just go and lose your worries, footloose and fancy-free. It is still that, for nothing has changed on the whole, but there are still the little pleasures that few tourists fail to take full worth of, such as  [...]
