A walk through the gridded town of Puducherry is nothing short of a simulation of walking through a box of crayons. Pink and yellow bougainvilleas, white balconies, pastel-painted bungalows and colourful scenes line its quaint alleyways. Even so, Puducherry finds itself amidst a dilemma: whether to be a great old colonial town resplendent with historical nuances or a chic new-age travel destination for modern travellers. Nevertheless, slices of life are best savoured in this town on foot or on a bike as the languid mood of its lanes comes alive with scenes of mundane activities.
