Last night, we had the opportunity to listen to the musical performance of Ritu Jain, in Pitanga. She sings and plays as a single person group, Sunnyahmm, attempting to bring music that inspires inner journeys and transitions and helps deepening inner connections in people. Spandan is a series of compositions intuitively aligned to take you deep within yourself and helping you touch your innate silence. These compositions deeply resonate with Ritu and at various moments themselves act as a 'Guru', opening up new spaces within. Read more

Priya Sundaravalli from Tamil Nadu is currently having an exhibition in Pitanga. Over 300 ceramic objects, which are all very unique, can be visited until the 24th of March. Her art is quite unusual and the thin shapes of her creations make the items look fragile. Instead of thinking and planning her work, she is trying to let her inspiration flow freely and allows herself to do whatever is coming up. If items crack she repairs them with a Japanese technique: 'Nothing is a defect, accidents are seen as part of what is supposed to happen.'

A month ago for four days two mysterious trees appeared in Auroville. On the trees 'messengers' appeared as paper birds to deliver a question for everyone.

In today's English Magazine hear some of the answers (in both English and French) recorded during those four days.To see the other answers or to add yours, contact or in the picture.
