Up until a few years ago, Pondicherry was a French Union Territory within India.  Today, that translates as lower taxes, cheaper beer & the French food is a break from Indian.

Our biker club took a Sunday ride from our homebase in Chennai (Madras) & I used the opportunity to hide India's 5th NaviCache (not that anybody else here has a GPSR).  It's hidden at a resort called Seagull's, right off the beach (3 rupee admission = US$0.06).

Did kalyan, or any other geocacher in India, ever find any of your other caches yet?

Don't give up hope. I still have a geocache that's been out since March of 2001 and no one has made an attempt on it yet. One or two said they had their eye on it, but they weren't able to make an attempt. Sooner or later, someone will...

No, "kalyan" was a bust.  He posted a Note one time at the Bangalore NaviCache & never responded to my Note.  His posting indicates MemberID 1410, but clicking on that link leads to no email function.

The other 4 India NaviCaches have been totally inactive.  As I've said before, there may not be another GPSR in poverty stricken India.  Even the most basic eTrex at US$100 represents 500 breakfasts in our company canteen.  Then there's the whole Indian concept of duty: the obsessive dedication to family & job.  I've been told by many professional co-workers that "fun" is a rare concept in Indian life.
