This was a good find while walking along the sea front at pondicherry. We did not expect to see a Statue of Gandhi. It was bought over by the French when Pondicherry was occupied by the French.

A landmark on the Pondicherry beach in the white town. In the backdrop is the lighthouse and the old embarcadere. Can have a good refreshing early morning walk around this area.
