Dr Unni Karunakara rides from Murud to Harnai, in Maharashtra, 9 December 2013 (Photographer: Unnicycles_MSF)We had the great pleasure to interview humanitarian Dr. Unni Karunakara, 2010-13 International President of Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres, or MSF), fresh from a bike ride, at Aurovelo. Following his medical studies, Dr. Unni wanted to practice medicine in a different way, and therefore focused on public health, which is more about preventing disease than treating it. To him, prevention is every doctor's responsibility, and that is one of the reasons he joined MSF in 1995. That year, he set up a tuberculosis control program in Ethiopia. Read more

Tuesday, 21 January 2014

Joyful dance to free Tibet (Photographer: Marie)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
