TravelPod Member ReviewsMaison Perumal Pondicherry
as with all CGH Earth sites this one excells in homely comforts and personal touches. Well appointed rooms are smaller than in most of the CGH Earth hotels but with lofty ceilings and simple furniture, tastefully chosen, the effect is spacious. Menus are a bit restricted but anything can be obtained just by asking. That goes for food, help, shopping, and local knowledge. We caught up on some late shopping, watched a festival, chatted about the virtues of Kerelan food versus Chettinad cuisine and came away feeling refreshed and ready for the world

We also spent a morning at the Aravind Eye Hospital. This eye hospital is no ordinary eye hospital and has conjured up a lot of interest from all around the world. There has been a ...
... queue outside although the staff there do their best but the large crowd definitely does not keep it calm. But definitely worth a visit for remembrance and see-feel the place and some of the things Rishi Aurobindo lived with. Picked up a couple of books from the souvenir shop – one on developing Inner Strength and the other on Freedom movement.
I am back at the hotel –paid the front office guy 500 bucks for letting me spend 4-5 hours ...
... afford because the money is not returned. So what young people have money like this to donate? And if they do, they will never earn enough money in Auroville to be able to save for a future life outside of Auroville. It seems that you need to be rich enough to enter to ever have a chance to escape.
This brings me onto the point about the non-progressive attitude, perhaps developing because young and passionate, hard-working and full-of-energy individuals ...
