EARTH&US PRESENTS THE HAPPINESS WORKSHOP

Earth&US operates on the principles of creativity, sustainability and genuine compassion. This is evident from the unique and effective ventures they are creating, This eco-driven consulting unit, is offering Strategic Soloutions for a Sustainable Planet. But what does it take to really solve our current day circumstances ? What do we actually want to achieve ?
Earth&US believes going straight to the point, Happiness. At the end of the day, we all yearn to have happiness in our life so why not work straight for it rather than going around it.
Earth&Us introduces to us ' happiness Workshop ' . This workshop is mainly focused on University students and also working professionals in the Corporate world. Often is the case a person can aspires for a sense of Happiness at the end of his working life, somehow we have been programmed to postpone our desires today and endure in pursuit of Happiness. Earth&US suggests the opposite, you are more likely to learn to be Happy now and not plan it as an event at the end of your life. The real work is to be happy and spread the happiness, today.

Laney's Friends

Laney's Friends is a touching children's story written by Noel Parent. The protagonist of the story is a compassionate little girl called Laney who possess the ability to talk to animals. She and her best friend, a kitten by the name of Marle come across a rabbit in need of immediate help. Their kindness and gentle character compels them to help the rabbit. However, they feel as though the danger has not passed as yet, and Laney and her friends set out on an adventure to find out what is wrong and fix it. Throughout their journey, they come across animals that are tired, scared, trapped or hurt and they do their best to help them. With each animal they save, their group becomes bigger and more motivated to find the reason for all the horrible happenings in the world. Eventually, they come across a source that is able to answer their questions, and gives them a powerful and thought provoking message that gives Lanie hope and a solution. While this heart touching story reveals where we have gone wrong, it also exposes the light at the end of the tunnel and our role as the future generation.

A New Step For Auroville

Patrizia Saccá is a paralympic table tennis champion who overcame her disabilities by becoming a champion. She describes her visit to Auroville in Italian translated to English by her friend, Susmita. She is in awe of the Matrimandir and recalls her visit to the inner chamber with the help of Susmita, who is a pioneer of the Accessible Auroville project. She describes in vivid detail how the peaceful atmosphere made her feel, and the reason that she keeps going back to relive the experience. The interview is conducted outside the Matrimandir, the place that inspires Patrizia.
They also discuss the concept of human unity, which they feel goes beyond goes caste and color to include people with disabilities. Susmita and she remind us that we are, above all, human beings and we deserve to feel equally loved and respected. They shed light upon the importance of the issue of accessibility and are confident that a new step for the City That The Earth Needs is making Auroville fully accessible at all fronts. Patrizia also shares with us the secret behind her success and positivity in life.

Bridging The Gap

Bhavya, an active volunteer at the Bridging the Gap program, tells us what the program aspires to do. Bridging the Gap is a three month course with an impressive and ambitious objective that has had a deep impact on several children. On the 3rd of December, children from several schools gathered together for the community event during which there was joyous dancing, a parade, many interactive games and goodies like popcorn and cotton candy. Beneath all the celebration, there were many obstacles that stood in the way of triumph, and Bhavya reveals what they were and how they successfully overcame them. She also talks about the change the movement has sparked and how it has empowered children to freely discuss topics that were considered a taboo earlier.

The Early Days Of Patrick

Patrick recounts his youthful adventures of hitchhiking along with his friends from France to India and eventually to Auroville. He recalls what drove him to join Auroville, his early days in the ashram and how it has evolved into the place we know today. From being a coolie helping with the construction of the Matrimandir to being the pioneer for surfing in Auroville, Patrick's days are enriched with interesting anecdotes and experiences. He also shares with us what it means for him to be a true Aurovilian, and which of The Mother's teachings resonate with him the most. His story is told to the backdrop of the song 'In My Life' by The Beatles, a song about loving the memories created in places that have changed for better or for worse.
