July 14th

Bastille Day is synonymous with democracy, freedom, and equality. The French ties of Pondicherry have brought the celebration to town. The day marks the historical breaking of the Bastille prison, symbolic of anti-feudal sentiments and equality which would go on to have an immense impact on the French Revolution as well as the structure of modern society.

The day known as the National Day in France is celebrated in Pondicherry as a tribute to freedom and Indo-French relations. The fireworks on the occasion present a breathtaking sight against the dark sky and the foaming sea. It is a gala for all in Pondicherry.
