I did two internships in India during my study. Both took place in south India in the beautiful former French colony of Pondicherry. First time that I went there was in April 2000 for my computer science bachelor degree internship.

The University of Paris was nice enough to give me a grant to support me in that experience and I flew to India for three months.
