Centre for International Research for Human Unity (CIRHU) started 'Aurovilian Conversations'. a series of weekly reflections (not formal debates or lectures) on various subjects of human and societal growth and development. The conversation held on 6 Sep (thursday) 2016 at CIRHU, TownHall of Auroville on 'What is Health?' is an interesting and enthusiastic subject discussed by students, interns, new comers and people of Auroville. Linda Grace, from Sante (Intergral Health Services of Auroville) has chaired the discussion and she spoke on the importance of 'health and consciousness in todays's world. She emphasized mainly on the self-interest and self-reliance of an individual to keep up once health and therefore look for sustainable and divine living.

Parmi les tresors d'Auroville, une autre perle: L'eau dynamisee. En 1994 une equipe de scientifiques menee par Bagwandas, s'est penchee sur l'eau et son potentiel de vie, ces recherches ont abouti a la mise au point d'un procede de dynamisation visant a rendre a l'eau les qualites lui appartenant depuis l'aube des temps et que le progres detruit peu a peu. Aquadyn est l'unite ou les fontaines sont fabriquees, il reste profondement lie a la recherche et au partage. L'originalite du procede d' Auroville est l' utilisation de lumiere et de son.
