A talk with Lisbeth and Ashwin

In the hustle of reaching to our destination we often forget to look around the path we are walking on. We just cross a lot of things without even noticing the beautiful depths they bear. And we do the same while going to Pondicherry from Auroville, we pass a small village called Muthialpet. Even the people traveling through this road daily don’t know that such a place even exist because they always try to run as fast as they could from there because of all the traffic but in this they forget to consider going inside the village and know it truely. Lisbeth and Ashwin decided to pay a visit to this village. Very impressively they captured the essence of this place in their photographs and exhibited them to let people know this place more closely and not judging it based on the outside traffic. They have showed Muthialpet in every light from dawn to dusk in their exhibition held in Pitanga.
To know more about the exhibition and the experience they had while shooting Muthialpet listen to the talk we had with the Photographers.

Happy May Day

International Workers’ Day, also known as Labour Day is a celebration of labourers and the working classes . The date was chosen for International Workers’ Day by the Second International, a pan-national organization of socialist and communist political parties, to commemorate the Haymarket affair, which occurred in Chicago on 4 May 1886.
The first May Day celebration in India was organised in Madras (now Chennai) by the Labour Kisan Party of Hindustan on 1 May 1923.
The International Workingmen’s Association took up the demand for an eight-hour day at its convention in Geneva in August 1866, declaring “The legal limitation of the working day is a preliminary condition without which all further attempts at improvements and emancipation of the working class must prove abortive”

our public charities are but the first tardy awakening in the conscience of a robber.”

Classical Guitar Solo

Quiet Sturaday evening with special candle light atmosphere at Pitanga, and Ashaman offering classical guitar solo. In second part of the recital Vera joined him with her soprano for few songs. We heard pieces mostly of South American composers, and two longer pieces of Bach(Prelude) and Barrios. And as Ashaman among other said – to perform classical guitar solo could be compare to an Olympic event considering the challenges the performer meets.

The integral Yoga is so called because it aims at a harmonised totality of spiritual realisation and experience. Its aim is integral experience of the Divine Reality, what the Gita describes in the words samagram mam, “the whole Me” of the Divine Being. Its method is an integral opening of the whole consciousness, mind, heart, life, will, body to that Reality, to the Divine Existence, Consciousness, Beatitude, to its being and its integral transformation of the whole nature.

Therre was a general meeting held on Monday April 24 in Unity Pavilion which was a continuation of last months general meeting where the core group came up with fulfilling the task of restructuring Town Planning & Development Council (TDC)/L’Avenir d’Auroville.

The team proposed a revised structure of TDC and asked for the opinions of people present in the meeting on the same. A lot of healthy debate and constructive insights were offered by the members of the community attending the presentation. The feedbacks and comments for last month’s meeting were also shared. Involvement of youths was an important point in the discussion. Meeting ended up on a positive note.

To be sincere, all the parts of the being must be united in their aspiration for the Divine – not that one part wants and others refuse or revolt. To be sincere in the aspiration – to want the Divine for the Divine’s sake, not for fame or name or prestige or power or any satisfaction of vanity.
