People of Puducherry

The indigenous people of Pondicherry is of Tamil origin but Pondicherry is home to a whole host of people from different Indian states as well as from European countries. The French influence lingers on even half a century after their departure it can be seen in the architecture and culture of Pondicherry down to the red ‘kepi’ worn by the local policemen.

Many of the locals born during French rule opted for French citizenship and continue to have close ties with France sending their children there for education etc. The Aurobindo Ashram also attracts a large number of foreigners - many of whom put down roots in Pondicherry.
