“The solar light is the symbol of the supra-mental light ” – The Mother said
Varuna is shining bright like the sun, so to speak. A Genaral Meeting was organized by Varuna and TDC to discuss the revised site application for the Solar Plant, it has proposed for Auroville. The meeting was packed with people from Auroville, obviously demonstrating the magnitude of this project. The Solar Power Plant, which proposes to take care of the electrical needs of the entire community for 50,000 future inhabitants of Auroville, had come across a kind of road block regarding the location of the site it had been allocated earlier. The matter was pending and was needed to be addressed by the residents along with the groups involved. In the spirit of Auroville, where mutual respect is above personal ambition, the Varuna team, made ingenious amendments and by the end of their presentation, the general feeling was that they have found out a way to keep the balance in opinions and integrity of their project intact. Much kudos to Varuna for envisioning such a remarkable project along with the state of the art desalination plant and the uphill power storage project all of which are discussed in detail in the presentation. Very soon Varuna can expect list of recommendation for site application from TDC after which it will follow its general procedure and will be posted in the News&Notes for mandatory two weeks notice and if all goes well, finally commence work on this new land for the project. All we can say is, let the force be with you.
