The "Fair Extraordinaire" at the Youth Centre was indeed extraordinary. The YC team and volunteers made sure that one of the most favored social festivals of the Auroville calendar will remain as such. In addition to regular activities a lot of new nooks and corners, especially catering to to children, had been added. A long list of vendors, a new pizza oven, homebred Auroville bands and Bollywood dancers, made sure that each person could find suitable entertainment. The Cake Competition, and a lot of music were especially appreciated. A mix of sounds recorded at the fair follows. Read more
