Mira and Mark presented their plans for the gardens to the public at Cinema Paradiso on August 31.
Special guests were Richard and Kailas who spoke frequently with The Mother regarding her conceptions for the garden.
Kailas had strong comments on the Garden of Life. Audience comments related to water use, creating gardens which bloomed in late afternoon, possible recreational use for the gardens and music.
The entire presentation will be on AVNet with a period for comments opening soon.
Auroville’s first Poetry Jam brought together 10 poets: B, Vierta, Usha, Cameron Sabron, Zurash, Simon, Monica, Julie and Jill; 10 poetic characteristics: Romantic, Dramatic, Speechless, Enlightened, Epic, Thrilling, Comic, Awesome, Tragic and Eye-opening; and 10 delicious jams courtesy of Naturellement. How they aligned was determined by either members of the audience or a panel of experts. Who would be voting was determined by each poet in the moment. Characteristics were represented in Auropaper bouquets–each one a flower. Before each poet could perform, MC Peter asked them a series of hilarious questions so the audience could know them better. Mara was responsible for vote tallying which as the final results came turned out to be a little lopsided. Nevertheless all jams were distributed and every poet left a winner.
As MC Gi explained, this is the difference between a Poetry Slam where poets compete and a Poetry Jam where poets come together for their own and the audience’s enjoyment.

Whatever method is used, persistence and perseverance are essential.
For whatever method is used, the complexity of the natural resistance will be there to combat it.
