Auroville Architecture with CISS

Auroville architecture has been a source of inspiration for thousands of people, everyone visiting Auroville can only stare in astonishment and wonderment, how did they manage it?
Well today as a special orientation for the students visiting from California Institute of Integral Studies, Suhasini and Piero put together a marvelous presentation. It was an entire spectrum of architecture, Piero with his special insights on the early Auroville days and construction of Matrimandir and Suhasni with her sharing of the ideology and practice of her unit in creating architecture of Auroville that we see around us. Projects like, Matrimandir, Solar Kitchen, Visitor Center, Future School, Unity Pavilion were some of striking projects discussed in details by the two master architects.
This is a rare presentation, created by Piero with his collection of photographs which gives the real sense of the time when humanity as a whole embarked onto creating Matrimandir and eventually Auroville.

'Accessible Puducherry'- Workshop

Satya Special School organized a Workshop on “ACCESSIBLE PUDUCHERRY – A STEP TOWARDS AN INCLUSION” on 21st October 2016 at Convention cum Cultural Center, Pondicherry University (A Central Univeristy). Department of Social Work has taken a profound initiative by hosting the event.

India has an estimated 70 million disabled people. Most of them remain confined to their homes due to complete lack of accessible infrastructure. Any attempt to travel, enter buildings, parks, shops etc can be impossible, unsafe or humiliating. They, therefore remain unseen, unheard, unaccounted and are rightly called – an invisible minority.
Accessibility has been one of the most neglected issues in the disability sector in India and is probably one of the crucial factors that can free up the potential and availability of opportunities for disabled people.

The Disability Act (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) was passed by the Indian Parliament in 1995. The Act mandates non-discrimination in transportation and the built environment. However, there has not been much progress so far on these aspects, in India.

Access and Accessible refer to the freedom of choice to enter approach, communicate or make use of a situation or environment without assistance and undue difficulties.
Keeping the above, the following objectives were focused at the workshop:

1. Create awareness on accessibility among various stake-holders
2. Current status on accessibility in Puducherry
3. Road map towards an inclusive Puducherry

And the distinguished Speakers for Accessibility workshop are:

Dr. Chdambaram for the topic ‘Accessibility in Educational institutions – Pondicherry University’ ; Mr. Alkahj for ‘African Perspective on Accessibility – CIAI Pondicherry’ ; Mr. Sudhakar for ‘Accessibility Aids and its Importance – Mobility India’; Dr. Srinivas Murthy for ‘Accessibility for persons with mental disability’ ; Ms. Susmita for Accessible Auroville and Dr. Gulam for ‘Accessibility in Developed countries’ – Pondicherry university

Consciousness is a reality inherent in existence. It is there even when it is not active on the surface, but silent and immobile; it is there even when it is invisible on the surface, not reacting on outward things or sensible to them, but withdrawn and either active or inactive within; it is there even when it seems to us to be quite absent and the being to our view unconscious and inanimate.

I am concerned with the earth, not with worlds beyond for their own sake; it is a terrestrial realisation that I seek and not a flight to distant summits. All other yoga regard this life as an illusion or a passing phase; the supramental yoga alone regards it as a thing created by the Divine for a progressive manifestation and takes the fulfillment of the life and the body for its object.
Sri Aurobindo
