A Call for Rain
With a present shortfall of nearly 50 cm. below the average annual rainfall, Auroville and its bioregion desperately need more rain and soon, if the aquifers are to be topped up, providing adequate water for next year. In these circumstances are we powerless? Aurovilian Tim thinks not. Tim points out that we have the powers of prayer and visualisation available to us, and that now seems the time to use them. How to do this: daily ask for, pray for and/or visualise rain falling. There's nothing to lose; perhaps Lord Varuna will acquiesce. Read more

A visit to Joy Guesthouse
At Joy Guest house, previously known as College Guesthouse, the main damage was caused by uprooted trees. Also, they have no water or electricity. Except from the working men and the people living there, the place is pretty deserted, since it is impossible of receiving guests in this condition. After the interview, on my way back to the radio, i was forced to stop since a tree was taken down to secure future safety to electricity lines. Read more

Beach side one week after cyclone
The beach side was heavily damaged during the cyclone. One week after, reconstruction work is going on. In the town Periyamudaliarchavadi, people were helping government working men clearing away fallen trees to restore electricity lines. Near Repos beach lives Bhaga, already for 20 years now. She gives an account of what happened. During our interview, reconstruction workers entered her back garden with heavy machinery. This ended our talk prematurely, as Bhaga had to go outside to prevent the machine doing too much destruction. Read more

Two responses to cyclone
You can hear Prya of Buddha Garden (Auroville), and the village head of Morattandi about their reactions to the cyclone Thane. Although separated by only 5km, their way of coping with the storm is quite different. Morattandi, a village of 2000 inhabitants southwest of Auroville, is still struggling to get the electricity and water supply working again. Buddha Garden, a sustainable farm with solar panels, is up and running again. The village head of Morattandi is giving the interview while giving directions to workmen fixing an electricity pole.

Space to Earth
And there was a sound...from far. Maybe heard by someone or something. How many messages do we send out every second? Maybe heard by someone or something. Responds or messages, communication in vain? And yet, we want it or not, we plan it or not, Divine does play its own role, the way it can, in given circumstances. And how often do we thank for the grace and blessings showered on us? Bounties of life are given to us over and over, on this small dot, called Earth in endless Universe. Read more
