Auroville Market on Saturday morning (Photographer: web)Just before the New Year we spoke with Isabele, who is one of the founders of Auroville Market about it. As she told us it started three years ago with mainly Food Link products, and slowly overgrown into a well established Saturday Market with Auroville products. Location is central, in front of Solar Kitchen, and time frame Saturday morning. That way many people do pass by, not necessary with the intention to buy. It seems that Aurovillians, and New Comers do enjoy in the culture of Saturday market, on which, they supply themselves with fresh vegetables and food products, but also exchange the ideas, and socialize...

Emanuela (Photographer: Miriam)Trough Auroville many people pass every year. Some stays few days, some about a month, but some decide to really “taste” it. Emanuela came from Brasil few months back, and she talked with us about her life, work and experiences here. She found lots of good things for herself around, she soon realized how much she grew, and also that month is not enough to taste what Auroville is about. For her the first month was the hardest but after she started to work, and meet Aurovillians, things changed. And as she said, right now Auroville is her second home.

Honte à moi

Bouh-boooouuh (Photographer: Chloe)Malgré l'absence de reproches des proches, rien ne cloche et c'est moche. Mon Moi est en émoi, dans l'embarra et ça ce voit. L'instance qui maintient l'unité de la personnalité en permettant l'adaptation au principe de réalité a un sentiment pénible causé par la conscience d'avoir commis un manquement au devoir de parole. C'est pourquoi, cette fois, le Moi-Je raconte la honte, commente le manque, remplit le non-dit, colmate l'échec et mat, dévoile la toile, révèle les bonnes nouvelles et finis par prédire le rire. Ce qui est, avouez-le merveilleux pour un ego vieux-jeu.

Vinodhini (Photographer: Miriam)Those who have chosen an Auroville as the place to live and work surely don't need regulations, rules to guide their life, but the fact is that although Auroville belongs to whole humanity, it is situated in India, and as such Indian law definitely apply when it comes to outer matters. Vinodhini, lawyer by profession offered her service to Aurovilians because, as she expressed, they are her family, and she wants to help in interactions at legal matters between Aurovilians and outer world. She sees law as an excellent tool, language for communication, and as a lawyer she can understand both sides. At the moment she's offering mostly consultations for the working groups.

Les ouvriers de l'actualité (Photographer: Chloe)Des mécréants insomniaques prétendent que la cité de l'Aurore est la ville où l'on dort. C'est vrai la nuit. Mais le jour, y'a pas moyen de trouver une place assise normale où on peut faire une sieste intégrale. Il se passe toujours quelque chose : ça grouille, ça gazouille, ça vie, ça prie, ça gravite et ça lévite. On est sollicité par une tonne d'activités : ce sont les « regular events » de News&Notes. Et pour ne pas les oublier, ils sont même devenus réguliers. Alors nous avons enquêté pour vous aider à vous y retrouver. Voici donc, notre étude de marché pour les non initiés.

Marie talks about Nandini

patternNandini is a cooperative which supplies clothes on a need basis rather than enticing people to browse and buy things they might not really want, like a shop. Membership is paid for annually and people are given what they need regardless of cost. The clothes are bought in Pondicherry as and when they are required. Yet there are questions about defining need - how many t-shirts a person really needs - and this is monitored carefully. Sometimes people are found to be taking too much and Marie has to talk with them about what they really need. There is also a tailoring service to alter clothes and have things such as curtains and bedclothes made for houses.
That piece was uploaded as one from the serie of past articles.
