Moments turn magical when indulged in with open heart and deeper understanding.... Would anyone have ever imagined that an ancient banyan tree of a remote village, could feature in Ang Lee’s 2012 Oscar-winning film Life of Pi which earned four 2013 Oscar wins, including Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, and Best Visual Effects ? Yes, it is here, just 20 km from Pondicherry.
An enriching experience to help come out of our shell to touch the beauty of knowing and understanding local traditions and cultures by exploring this special place - Ancient Banyan and the priestess Maheswari amma, local temples, villages, spending time with folk musicians, tasting of local Tamil dishes with hands on experience on traditional crafts.
