Interview with the community members about Auroville film festival 2017

Interest and Passion matters

Auroville Radio station had a guest from Pondicherry University Department of Mass Communication and Journalism on the weekend morning. Mr David Dinakaran, Masters student of Mass Communication and Journalism has been interviewed to know the general view on journalism and his reporting experience during Chennai Floods. He shared his happiness for Journalism and interest for mass media.

He said that, "One has to have immense interest and passion to serve society to take up the post of a journalist. It is not an easy task but a 24/7 job". He also later added that interpretation is part of political journalism and there has to be a healthy journalism with inclusiveness of socio-cultural, political, economic and environmental aspects concerning the society.

In India, the career path for journalism is not much supported as there is less pay and therefore, students hardly show interest towards this amazing field.

Light in Darkness

Last night, despite the limited seating, Pavilion of Tibetan Culture, International Zone was packed. LIGHT in DARKNESS, an interdisciplinary performance with original stories, poetry, moving images, movements and music had attracted many curious people, excited to partake in the multi-layered creative offering. The performance was created and performed by Hamish with Christoph on multi-media and directed by fif. Hamish shared a unique poetry performance with us, based on the exhibition of his original photos and poetry of the same name (still running at TP). In his performance, the poetry came alive. Word play, as carefully lined as a precious beads on the silk string to create a pattern, conveying a story, reflection, memory, association.... constantly in deep awareness of his entity and the world around him, showing extreme sensitivity and personal experiences, sometimes with a humorous or even sarcastic note but all the time looking up to the LIGHT in DARKNESS.

Voyage of Poumi’s life

In the first part of my life I was essentially a dancer and a
choreographer, all though I was painting and chanting…
Starting in Maurice Béjart’s company, than had my own company with creations all over (Europe, Mediterranean countries, Africa, New York, Antilles, and a lot in India…)
In India I learned
mantras and prayers on the banks of river Ganges, than started a series of cd’s focused on Indian spiritual chants and after, Tibetan: “Incantations”, “Incandescence”, “Hung” and “Rudraksha”. The last one just born, is “Malkhout” with texts of Bible, in Hebrew, Greek and Arameen.
I love the sharing of this energy with the audience in concerts, each time happens a deep experience. Different programs are available: centered on a specific tradition or a voyage to all.
I also dance at the end of the program when the place makes it
All my life has been focused on self knowledge and self development through body language and yoga, by teaching classes and workshops. My aim is to bound art, therapy and
spirituality (in a cosmic view, I wrote a book about Sri Balayogi: “The Alchemy of Silence”).
The chants are inspired by a deep research with great spiritual masters, who gave there assents for singing these texts.
Painting and healing are also important in an other space of my life.
Everything is done to open the hart and to bring
