What is Petra?

We were hosting Uma and Torkil this morning in our studio, and the talk was on PETRA. What is Petra, where it came from, where is aiming….
Out of Retreat in 2015 many (working) groups has emerged, and one of them was Integral Entrepreneurship Lab, from which group Petra was born. The group is growing, expanding, merging … because their member feels the need that Auroville moves from urban village toward sustainable township, offering enough support for the human resources to join.
Petra ( a working name, homage to late Petra) would not only be a gateway or filter, but also a place where economy should become a catalyst to turn things around, and develop the city of Dawn; it aspires to be a meeting pong, borderline with holistical approach with inbuilt possibilities and opportunities for residents and visitors alike.

To Heal Skin Problems

Sarah arrived in Auroville as one of many Weltwaerts volunteers from Germany, and has decided to work with plants, since that is her passion, and maybe her future line of work with environmental science. Most of time here she spent at Botanical Garden continuing with the work of a garden someone started last year., and as she mentions, some one will continue after her …

Sarah compiled booklet, which supposed to be the first one in the series, on Local Medicinal Plants in Tamil Nadu. That one is focused on healing skin problems with local plants.
So many possibilities, and freedom to chose , would be high on the list of things Sarah like about Auroville, followed by her good relationship with Makachi, a Tamil woman with an enormous knowledge on plants and their uses, who generously shared her knowledge with Sarah…..

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it is there even when it is invisible on the surface, not reacting on outward things or sensible to them, but withdrawn and either active or inactive within; it is there even when it seems to us to be quite absent and the being to our view unconscious and inanimate.

Affordable, Healthy Eatery

On Wednesday 10th of May at 6pm we are invited to the entrance of Mahalakshmi Park to witness official opening of new – The Neem Tree Eatery in Auroville.
In short interview with Partha, one of the project holders,  we find out that the main inspiration behind the project was to offer mainly aurovilians healthy affordable place to eat. Project holders Partha, Min and Mahavir who cherish good home made meals,  has decided to offer food from different parts of India.
In first months the Neem Tree Eatery will run between 6pm to 10pm, offering extra time for late comers, or those who like to attend cultural events in the evening. At the moment they can tend around 50 to 60 people,
Desing of the building was done by Partha’s wife Sonali(an AV architect) along with Min, keep it simple and beautiful taking in account the sustainability by use of recycled material.
For the opening Partha promises us, and invite at the same time to taste some of the Indiand snacks and juices.

All My Sons

Thie weekend (5th, 6th, 7th) Auroville Theatre Group presents Arturh Miller’s play All My Sons at CRIPA’s garden in Kalabhumi.
The play is Miller’s first great play about family, ethics, money, and love.
Being set at the back of CRIPA, and story is going on at the backyard of family’s house in Ohio, to audience brings a certain intimacy , closeness to the family, and involvement to the story.
Despite that is set in years after War II , play does draw the parallel on what is going on at the moment on the planet, and we can easily translate it in every day situations, where the question of responsibility of conscious choice play a vital role.
Amazing acting of Swar, Jill, Shilpi, Vinu Karthick, Nishant Saini, Ahmed, Myrta, Manjula Selvam, Satyendra Kumar, Satish T; under the direction of Jill.
All the actors, regardless being old “cats” or new ones, proved their acting maturity.

This morning we hosted Jill and one of the actors in the play, Nishant Saini in our studio, and the conversation was going on around the play, and Nishant experiences.
Among others Jill on the question of relevance of the play to Auroville says, that she has chosen this play to be reminded on “our share of responsibility … or what could happened, or what are the consequences of not thinking through …”

All My Sons by Arthur Miller is directed by Jill , and we will see on the stage Swar, Jill, Shilpi, Vinu Karthick, Nishant Saini, Ahmed, Myrta, Manjula Selvam, Satyendra Kumar, Satish T.
