Introduction of new WC members

On Dec15th the outcome of the three day selection process was celebrated at the unity pavilion. The recording starts at the second part of the meeting when each new member presents themselves. Residents were greeted by children serving cookies, next there was a puppet show that summarized with humor the three day process and songs by the TLC children, (unfortunately this section was not recorded). A rainbow interrupted the meeting briefly. The event concluded with the song "Imagine" by Future school students and a dinner was served for all.

Chandana 12, Composes "Sun Rise"

My name is Chandana and I am 12 years old. I was born in Auroville (2002).
My father Nadaka is a musician and so music was always present in our house. I love music very much. When Vania first had shown me the website on which I could create my own music I was amazed. I was very enthusiastic and tried many different things on it!! I was literally hitting buttons and changing musical parts, when finally I composed a song "Sun Rise".
This song made my family very happy and when Vania first heard it he suggested that with the help of Auroville Radio I could share it with friends and the rest of the world.
I hope this song makes you and others smile :)

Off the Cuff- Andrea, Renu Wazo

In this episode we discuss money inspired by an article posted by Krishna on the volunteer contribution policy change.
The suggested monthly contribution may make it difficult to give the chance to young people to join the many projects were volunteers are very welcome and the Auroville projects are also not in a position to be able to cover these expenses. The radio alone has developed thanks to some 250 highly skilled volunteers and interns. The question of centralized money and decentralized skills have all to be appreciated for the energy they bring and a balance found between our view of energy - be it money or work.

Off the Cuff- Andrea, Renu Wazo

The trio are back speaking on all sorts of topics that annoy or amuse them: this time they share their frustration on a variety of local annoyances and what they consider poor decisions by the Farm Group, The Green Group and the TDC. They cover the topic of selection election of the Working Committee, and discuss the rise in vector diseases (dengue, malaria and filaria) what can and should be done and what is possibly being done as we speak. They discuss their favorite local Auroville restaurants.
We hope to hear from anyone mentioned or so we can enlarge or rectify our impressions and perspectives in the next program(s).

Wellpaper Project

WELL: women, empowerment, local, livelihood.
These are the words that sustain this project of social economy. The Wellpaper project recycles paper waste to transform it into useful and beautiful objects. Training and empowering women from the villages develops and maintains a social business unit of great local importance. The workers of this unit acquire a vast knowledge in managing this type of social business and they become agents of replication. Some of them work as teachers in other communities that want to implement the same kind of successful social economy.
Local is beautiful!
