That put an effective end to the impending construction of a glass-fronted tower in the middle of the French precinct Over the yearsa few old buildings continued to be nibbled away furtively Howeversince 1995the destruction has been quite rapid In 1995there were about 1800 buildings listed by INTACH as heritage buildings in Pondicherry; todayjust about half are left Most of the buildings lost have been in the Tamil part of the town In the French partthe destruction has been less harsh; from the 300 listed buildings in 1995about 270 now remain In 2002during my second posting in PondicherryI was fortunate to also have in my charge the culture department That enabled me to focusonce againon the preservation of what remained I organised a heritage summit in 2001 Prior to the summitand with the active assistance of the PWDthe Pondicherry Chapter of INTACHas well as many concerned citizenswe restored the upper wing of the Town Hall (Mairie) built in 1871 Friends of Pondicherrysuch as Francis Wacziarg and Aman Nathwho own a hotel in the Boulevard Towngave a donation with which we were able to restore the Mairies period artefacts With this restorationour heritage summit got a boostthe restored Town Hall became its pivotand the effect was that several people in Pondicherry and Tamil Nadu were encouraged to embark upon restoration of their properties It is in this context that the recent declaration by Pondicherrys PWD that five buildings are unsafe must be viewed The five include the house occupied by the famed freedom fighter and Tamil poet Subramanya Bharathiwhere he sought refuge from the British in the then French territoryas well as the imposingcollonaded Town Hall The Pondicherry government has addressed the Archaeological Survey of India who have carried out a preliminary survey If these five buildings are also declared unsafe by the ASIthen it is only a matter of time before the remaining buildings in government ownership will be similarly given the death warrantbecause they all belong to the mid-19th century The argument of being unsafe may hold waterbut only if the buildings cannot be restored The ASI is not short of structural engineersarchitects and restorers and there are many others who constitute a large reservoir of expertise The Sri Aurobindo Ashram itself owns about a fourth of the buildings of the same periodand all of them appear perfectly safe and are in daily use Wacziarg and Nath have restored exactly such a buildingsafely and sensitivelywhich is now the Hotel de lOrient Indeedthe argument that the Mairie needs to be pulled down may stretch at a future date even to the Raj Niwas nearby (Incidentallythe Cabo Raj Niwas in Goabuilt in 1594stands perfectly erect) Thereforethe Pondicherry governmentthe ASI and the available reservoir of resourcesshould turn their focus towards preservation At a time when earlier achievements in architecture and beauty are being ignored and the cityscape is deterioratingthe Pondicherry Chapter of INTACH has also shown the way In collaboration with the Pondicherry governmentit took upa few years agothe task of conserving this very same heritage with the aim of boosting tourism This project helped restore and preserve 10 private buildings under a matching grant scheme In the Tamil townfacades of a stretch of Vysial Street were restored to demonstrate the charm of Tamil vernacular architecture with its continuous verandas This project got the UNESCO Asia Pacific award in 2008 The Pondicherry Asia Urbs Programme also received international recognition in 2010when the Shanghai World Expo showcased this project as one of the 50 best urban projects from around the world TodayPondicherrys old town is highly urbanisedits population has tripled in the last two decadesleading to severe stress on existing infrastructure facilities and urban amenitiesdeterioration of the environment and quality of life Such rapid urban transformation is gradually destroying the Boulevard Towns fragile heritage The transformation includes uncontrolled changes in terms of land useproperty divisiondemolitions and alterationsurban skylinestreetscape characterhigh vehicular trafficetc The government of Pondicherry must review its existing floor area ratioso that in the near future Pondicherry does not take on the character of one of Delhis colonieswhere there is little symmetry or proportion in design Insteadwe should look in the direction of seeking UNESCO World Heritage Status for the French precinct All the basic ingredients are available cultural historycharming architecture and spiritual roots Pondicherrywith its cosmopolitan flair and multi-cultural population is a city chosen by Subramanya Bharathi and Sri Aurobindo as their home It could become a city dedicated to cultureeducation and spiritualism There is no doubt the selection criteria to acquire world heritage status are arduousbut there is also no
