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.

Second GM held on Wednesday, the 15th of October, at 4:30 pm at Unity Pavilion. After this meeting the AVCouncil has declared the following. Dear community members, In regards to our process on trying to create a 'Code of conduct and eligibility criteria' for working groups, limited participation and divulging opinions within the community on the topic has resulted in a lack of conclusion for the time being. The Auroville Council would like to halt this process at this point; it seems some fundamental questions need to be asked and answered by us as a collective, including the need and implementation strategy of such a document, before the next attempt is made to draft a conclusive 'Code of conduct and eligibility criteria' guidelines. All those who participated in this difficult process diligently, the Auroville Council thanks you for your patience and persistence. Once we are ready to restart the process with a different better approach, we will announce it to the community. In the meanwhile, for the possible 3 day selection process in the first week of November, the temporary Feedback Review Committee will use Laws of India, guidelines from the Mother and 'Material conditions to live in Auroville' as a base to process feedback on nominees for the Working Committee and Auroville Council. Sincerely, The Auroville Council
