A Day at Large in Pondicherry

Wednesday 28th November, Pondicherry.

A quiet day in this former French colony. You can just imagine Albert Camus walking these streets and then sitting with a pastis and a Gauloises.
Part of Pondicherry was on lockdown today with police and military out in force. A suspected thief who was being held in prison died in hospital yesterday. Other prisoners claimed he had been beaten up. Demonstration outside the hospital.

India may have Gandhi but France has the maid.
