GM on Mangalam Radial- Pony farm

The General Meeting on the topic of the planned Pony Farm road was attended by well over 170 people.
The atmosphere was convivial and mature despite the opposing point of views. The diversity of people present, proved that many care deeply for the development of Auroville despite the differences in priorities, there was also a will for a collaborative way to be found. The RAS made an exemplary job by providing extensive information on the topic in the form of; Maps, images, background information and objections prior to the meeting. The RAS focus was to find tools and processes for joint ventures between residents and working group, however the various presentations and Q and A sessions took most of the time.

This recording has been re-edited and kept in its full length.

Reviving Tradition

Within the orientation to Auroville and Sustainable Livelihood Institute two day program we managed to talk with one of the participants Sreelekha from Tamindrenvan. With Sustainable Livelihood Institute  Sreelekha feels that rural areas of Tamil Nadu are supported by government but her biggest inspiration in past two days came through the message of Auroville to go back, and respect local tradition in many ways, and organic farming with healthy  food, which is widely served around here. She is looking forward to share with  people her insights and continue with livelihood programs and consultations.
