There is absolutely no beach in Pondicherry

Dear Tusar M, As proposed, I am giving below the two pieces I wished to, as a reply to the article in New York Times and to the Tourism move by the greedy Government, at the cost of environment and ecology. For your publication suitably if you feel. Good wishes, Aju Mukhopadhyay

From the road it seems that the sea has gone further down. No one can easily approach the sea
Ode to the Sea and Beach of Pondicherry By Aju Mukhopadhyay

Many thanks Tusar M, There is absolutely no beach in Pondicherry - towards Auroville there is something but for the Govt activity in the port area the whole sea front is now dangerous. The beach - raised makeshift beach like thing is dangerous with notice that no one should try to swim for really some have been drowned. The sea beach and walking Mother with Pranab Bhattacharya is the cover picture of my book - a record for what has been lost. There is little chance for its recovery, more may go unless Nature herself decides otherwise. However, let us see if people respond. Good wishes, Aju M
