Content at the Speed of Light

Today Andrea met with Manu, Yahalom, Chandresh and Dyuman to discuss the implementation and the use of the fiber optic network in Auroville.
In the coming weeks some testing will start at the AurovilleRadio/TV in order to provide live audio video content.
Some events happening in public buildings will be visible in a dedicated video channel.
Actually some schools and about 5 public buildings are served but this service will be enlarged soon.
The next phase of the fiber infrastructure is to connect some missing communities, other public buildings and later also housing settlements will be reached by the fiber.
In the coming 2/3 years around 500 residents may avail of the hi speed network and associated services.
The ICITI project was initiated by JV Avadhanulu and Chandresh Patel.

Embracing the Planet

The new season of Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas, Pavilion of India, International Zone has started last night with amazing performance Embracing the Planet. We follow the story of misplaced San bushman who was denied for the birthright of using his mother tongue. Lost in his life journey gets across of a spirit, who becomes his guide on the path of reconnection to the thread of light. Performes supported by rich video imagery are along with the audience, totally immerse in the incredible sound which , either we want it or not, affects with its frequencies our bodies, minds, and completes the universal story ... What have we done? ...in the name of civilization and the progress? ..... what is one's mission on this planet? ....

Excellent performance is a fruition of collaboration and work of many
Philippe Pelen Baldini - author, artistic director, choreographer, director
Thierry Moucazambo - assistant director, performer, choreographer,
Irven Morapedi Teme - performer, choreographer,
Jemremy Roske - musician, performer
Vania - sound, music and sound tracks
Eric Angels - video creator
Jean - light
Joshua - sound
Kiran - costumes
Riju - organisation

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?
