Re: Intro from a new member- vikram from India

this site isn't so much a "chat and make friends" site as a "I live or might live in Switzerland and want to know more" site

Re: Intro from a new member- vikram from India

I have a fascination for Switzerland from my childhood.I would like to know about this beautiful place and of its people and culture. I am not trying to promote my trade as I donot have any intentions of promoting my trade in Switzerland. I just got a message like I may be banned if I was trying to spam you with ink cartridges. I mentioned the field of my work.This was all I wanted to do.

By the way where do you live in Switzerland. Well, I may not know the place by the name, but certainly I would like to know about the place you live in.

Re: Intro from a new member- vikram from India

So, you like to name the place you live in in Italian. I just read from the encyclopaedia that the italian name of Zurich is Zurigo. You live in a very beautiful place. Not very populated.

Unlike Zurigo, Pondicherry where I live, is quiet populated. We have Sri Aurobindo Ashram here in Pondicherry. I was a student of Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education and so I live here.

Re: Reply from vikram

You are very lucky you could fulfil your desire of living in Switzerland.

I too am lucky to be living in a place next to my own heart.

How do you like Bern. Have you also visited other places of Switzerland.

Re: Intro from a new member- vikram from India

Does Vikram get his own thread?

Vikram, you should meet Beatrice on this forum if you're looking to make friends and have ongoing banter with someone.

Don't they speak French in Pondicherry? Would be helpful for you if you wanted to live in that part of Switzerland.

Re: Intro from a new member- vikram from India

Hello OMMTHREE,

At one time Pondicherry was a French Colony and hence the influence.

However, the school I studied in has French as the first language. The name of the school is Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education.

I donot have any plans of coming to Switzerland in the near future.

Thanks, I will keep your observation in mind.
