sleepy sadhu!

"It is a former French colony. It consists of four non-contiguous districts or enclaves and is named for the largest, Pondicherry.
The territory is currently undergoing a name change to the original name of the city, Puduchery meaning "new village" in the official
Tamil language. The French spelled it "Poudichéry", which is the closest French approximation to the Tamil pronunciation. At some point, the hand-written 'u' was mistaken for an 'n', and the misspelling stuck." - Wikipedia
