Off the Cuff-37

Renu, Wazo and Andrea this week are.... NOT OKAY- We discuss how the shameless domination of money, which is continuously maintained by pragmatic arguments, (based on fear and separation), are insulting our ideals, polluting the atmosphere and delaying what we are ALL longing for and came to create. Renting space in Auroville to newcomers for personal profit should not be tolerated any longer. It goes against the very core of what Auroville wants to be.

Revealing the Self

Last night poetry recital Revealing the Self at Visitor's Centre brought to us by two poetry personalities KinGi and Truly Tracy was an unique experience. Simple set of table with two chairs, candlelight, jar with water were a frame where intimate poetry of KinGi and Truly Tracy took place. First part with KingGi reveal the explorative world of a sensitive male soul in a relation to another. Yet the poet, although very vunerable, is ready to mock at himself. In second part of the evening with poetic pleasures Tracy shares intimate spaces of her dwellings with the audience. Wheter be a reflection of the past, or a glimpse of love story ... in all with the simplicity and repetition of words goes beyond the obvious.

Off the Cuff-35

This week: We are thankful to JV, Chandresh and all for the work of laying fibre optic and NKN, and delighted by the new building that Kailash Clinic is slowly shifting into, we talk about the need for Tamil programs in the radio and hope that people will be motivated to join us, which brings us to question how we finance public services and finally how does the current economic system actually advance or encourage people to change? Despite an impressive 212 Crore turnover. Does the current mind set, encouraging "busy-working" and earning actually delay the social changes we long for?
But of course we know nothing.
