The MAMA went to Visitor Center and asked a few people how they felt about appropriate dressing in Auroville. Each of them gave their opinion and their thoughts on this subject. It is an important matter due to the surroundings of Auroville.
We explored the town hall offices and interviewed as many people as possible. Learn about their work, their responsibilities, what makes it fun or difficult and what they would do if they had a super-power!
This is the first project from our community service week at the radio. The aim was to interview visitors who have spent no more than a week in Auroville; to hear how their short stay may have affected them.
In a meeting attended by some 106 Aurovilians the arguments and reservations for the NDTA proposal are made.
General Meeting on the NTDA (New Town Development Authority), a proposed local (Tamil Nadu) planning body that would have a legal power to propose and approve developments in the Auroville Master Plan area according to the Master Plan.
The creation of the NTDA for Auroville has been proposed by Auroville Foundation and TDC to the State Government as a measure to protect Auroville's land against the growing number of encroachments.
Following this meeting, the RAS observed that some participants expressed an interest in the exploration of alternative solutions to an NTDA.
During the meeting we were also given to understand that the NTDA proposal is already in an advanced stage. Hence we propose to use the momentum of this meeting to try to arrive at practical proposals as soon as possible.
The RAS now invites and encourages anyone with a proposal on how to protect and secure Auroville's land to communicate it to the RAS.

The San bush people of the Africa desert believed we are each connected by a thread of light to the stars, nature and all life. Their wisdom says - when the thread is cute, we suffer, what they call "star sickness". We are left disoriented , isolated and alone - breeding anger, fear, greed and separation... Can we find this lost thread of light? Can we connect once again, to our cosmic roots?
