Sustainability with Hemp

Controversial, yet very hot topic on use of hemp or cannabis (marihuana) …was in the spotlight  of today’s interview with Viki Vaurora and Deblina Chowdhury. Fighting with his own illness,  Vicki got across with medicinal properties of cannabis, and amazed by results he dive into the topic. In 2014 The Great Legalization Movement was established, and along with others Viki also initiated Indian Hemp Research Institute which is in process to be supported by Indian government. However both, Deblina and Viki do see sustainability of the country in the use of industrial hemp which versatility could replace many materials , from our homes, clothing, food, to bio plastic, and fuel.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemp
Hemp or industrial hemp (from Old English
hænep) typically found in the northern hemisphere, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago. It can be refined into a variety of commercial items including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.

Although cannabis as a drug and industrial hemp both derive from the species Cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they are distinct strains with unique phytochemical compositions and uses.[6] Hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects. The legality of industrial hemp varies widely between countries. Some governments regulate the concentration of THC and permit only hemp that is bred with an especially low THC content

Presentation on GST

Mr. Rajendra Kumar P, an expert on GST from Chennai shared his insights at Unity Pavillion.

How magic happens!

How it feels when you finally ‘realise’ that this is what you’ve been looking for…
On Tuesday, 18th April 2017, SAVI hosted a volunteer presentation in Tibetan Pavillion, two volunteers Jyothirmayee and Mayank, working in “Kenji’s Japanese Carpentry workshop” shared their life experience and how Auroville managed to give them what they have been looking for their whole life. They shared how they managed to deal with all the problems , how they managed to keep their basket full of questions aside and have an empty basket for answers on them. Jyothirmayee told a story how she felt magic happening when her 40 year plan started in like a snap. Mayank shared his love for wood, how they speak to him. After years of struggle inside out, they found something they have been looking for.
All you need to do for yourself is keep cleaning the stream of your flow and to put mind, body and heart in harmony and the magic will happen. This is how one can find that one “thing” they are looking for.
The applaud at the end of each talk spoke how everyone was so deeply touched by their stories.

You must never forget that the outer person is only the form and the symbol of an eternal Reality, and that, passing through the physical appearance, it is to this higher Reality that you must turn. The physical being cannot become truly expressive of the Eternal Reality until it is completely transformed by the supramental manifestation. And until then, it is by it passing through it that you must find the Truth.

Scene from Mahabharata

The Ilaignarkal Education Centre has given us the beautiful opportunity to see Tamil folk Theater Theru Koothu performance of a scene from the Mahabharata.
For the very first time have we seen this kind of folk performance; credit goes to the Mohanam Cultural Centre which is providing space and training for young students to dedicate themselves to the revival of folk theater. While watching the performance one could notice the intense work of the students, musicians, and mentors because every detail, all the way to the elaborate costumes, was done by the group.

Koothu means dance or performance in Tamil, it is a folk art originated from the early Tamil country. But more precisely Koothu refers to either Terukuttu or Kattaikkuttu. The terms Terukkuttu and Kattaikkuttu are often used interchangeably in modern times; however, historically the two terms appear to have distinguished, at least in certain villages, between two different kinds of performance: while Terukkuttu referred to mobile performances in a procession, Kattaikkuttu denotes overnight, narrative performances at a fixed performance space. Koothu as a form of entertainment reached its peak hundreds of years ago in Tamil Nadu, as mentioned in the Sangam texts about the development of iyal (literature), isai (music) and natagam (drama). Going beyond just a means of entertainment, koothu educates the rural people about religion and their history.
Koothu is an informal dance structure, the performances generally depict scenes from ancient epics like Ramayana, Mahabharatha and Tamil other classical epics. There are traditionally no dialogues, instead only songs. Artists are trained to sing in their own voice and in a high pitch to reach the entire crowd, since no amplification technology is used. The artists are dressed up with complex heavy costumes and have a very bright elaborated makeup. They put on towering head dresses, sparkling shoulder plates and wide colorful skirts. Traditionally this theater form has been predominately male, though in modern times more females have been included (e.g., Girl’s theater at the Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam).


Pondicherry Equestrian Challenge

The Pondicherry Equestrian Challenge (PEC) 2016 has been organized for two weeks at the RED EARTH RIDING SCHOOL, Auroville. Many riders from Bangalore, Chennai, Cuddalore, Tirupur, Pondicherry and Auroville have participated in the wonderful event.

The local residents and guests and visitors of Auroville enjoyed the Jumping Challenge at this PEC 2016. Events like these make youth energized says a visitor.

Parents should make sure of making their children involve in various sports and extra curricular activities which helps their growth in an inclusive manner rather than forcing them to stick to books alone. Books provide knowledge and wisdom and activities like these promotes holistic development.

Cash prizes were given to the winners in three categories. CAT A: 135 Cms, CAT B: 120 Cms and CAT C: 110 Cms.

The interesting thing about these competitions was that students of grade 8 have taken part. Therefore, there were various levels of competitions depending on the height of their strengths.

Programs like these should be encouraged by governments and the civil societies to develop a spirit for Equestrian culture, says Sri, a resident of Auroville.
