Knotting Auroville and Pondicherry memories

On a quest of personal growth, I left for Auroville for a 2 weeks workshop on Bioclimatic Earth Architecture. Now the self growth part comes into play because I was dependent on myself for a period of 2 weeks, from doing dishes to washing clothes to exploring places on my own. It was exciting, overwhelming and exhilarating. Auroville a.k.a ‘The City of Dawn’ (works best for me, as I am a morning person :P) is undoubtedly one of those secluded, beautiful places that makes you meet your own self. A community of such humble and helpful people, it’s a place that everyone should visit once in their lifetime.
Pondicherry was also one of the places I visited and was smitten by the magnificence of the French colony. So here’s a display of the essence I tried to capture of both the places, a few of the pictures are edited such because they felt poetic and artsy!
