8th Tibet Festival Performance

A very moving performance, last Saturday night, at the Tibetan Pavilion in Auroville, was given as part of the 8th Tibet festival. TSAM (Tibetan Students Association of Madras) expressed, through traditional dance and singing, their hope for a free Tibet. The show ended with the Tibet national anthem which brought tears to my eyes, partly out of gratitude to the generosity and warmth displayed by these hobbyist dancers and singers. Such goodwill, honesty, sense of humor and commitment to the cause of their country. Forget hobbyist, I saw only the weight of the humanitarian work that they are doing. Free Tibet! Read more

Pierre Veillat shared with us in Svedam some facts and interesting stories about French archaeological mission of Bubasteïon, Saqqara in Egypt where in 70ies they discovered five exceptional tombs of the new empire. In contemporary papyrus documents the area was known as the Bubasteion, or cult-place of the cat goddess Bastet. But Alain Zivie French archeologist realised that originally these galleries had been made as tombs for the high officials of New Kingdom Memphis. Over the years, his team emptied about 15 of these hypogea which are distributed on two levels in the cliffs. Two of these tombs date to the Old Kingdom, the others range in date from the reign of Hatshepsut to that of Merenptah. Read more

Turkish History
Not that he's know and serious Sufi scholar and musician, but also his lectures, even on sometimes boring subject as it's history, are very interesting and vast. Over a span of almost two hours he managed to attract listeners attention with broad approach to the history of Turkey area with all their migrations. Listening trough the lecture we were reminded with humor that history can be very subjective or depend on who writes it; what to some nation might be a cruel invasion and aggression to other will be merely fight for survival... All the lectures are enriched by Sufi music and read poetry. Read more

“Universal Playground”
The sight on Friday afternoon at the inauguration of exhibition on International Zone was one of the nicest ones – rich, colorful, friendly – a real unity in diversity. Vera started the inauguration by playing song on Russian bells, and few official welcoming speeches were followed by Jaya, Rakhal, Jyoti, Aster Patel, MR. Marc Luyckx Gishi, MR. Doudou Dienne and Mr. Shimelis Adugna. Aruvoille in manifest form is a process, but it is an invisible action in the world of incredible values. It is also the place where world's people can represent their special unique genius of each culture, each people, and we can take it for a new step ahead as an evolving humanity, said Aster Patel amongst other.

Between Kalabhumi & Future School

The first school  built in Auroville the Mother named 'Last School' as it was to be the last school of its kind, of the old way of teaching children.  Located near Aspiration Community, Last School is a middle school/high school which has existed in Auroville since the year 1985.
