This street was named after a Tamil officer killed in WWI

The street names of Pondicherry evoke much curiosity- be it the French words, the very interesting spellings of Tamil words or the people they were named after. But do we really know why a street is named so? Or what it was called decades ago?

‘Streets of Pondicherry’ is a collaborative video project by PondyLive and Anciens de Pondichery

Every video links the present streetscape to its storied past!
