Auroville Papers

Much more than paper, Auroville Papers is a unit that works as a team where there is no hierarchy, but only friendship and sharing of creativity and responsibility. They work in true Auroville spirit.
This is one of the units that started in the early times when conditions were difficult, but nevertheless in time they have expanded and improved their work.
With the recent change of economy, Auroville Papers had to adapt, and this pushed the team to be more innovative. Now not only do they produce aesthetic stationery, but they have also extended their repertoire to include all sorts of handicrafts, such as: earrings, door screens, a large variety of decorative items, and also some art work. One item that particularly caught my eye was a beautiful sculpture of a white unicorn (see our video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqW332od3KA). I felt like I had just walked into an art gallery rather than a paper factory.
Because of the economic change Luisa remarked that we cannot be passive. We always need to be challenged in life if we want to keep ourselves well and active, and stay awaken. It is a work of challenges and creativity says Jean Jaques.
These words reminded me that “all life is Yoga”.

At the interview we have Jean Jaques, Herve’,and Luisa

Tabla recital by Sanjay Mukherjee

Saturday evening we witnessed a powerful tabla recital, supported by the sitar, by Pt. Sanjay Mukherjee showcasing various styles of tabla playing.
He is one of the most well versed musicologist and great teacher on the subject belonging to the Farukhabad Gharana of Hindustani Classical Music.
He went through different complex tabla rhythms which only connoisseurs can name. Even poetry could be recited by playing the tabla… as he commented, the fingers need to sprout vigour and emotions with supreme artistry.
Tabla and sitar blended together very well. They concluded with a jugalbandi on tabla and sitar much to the taste of the public.
The evening was organised by ARPANAA.
Thank you so much Geeta, Creativity & Mona, Yantra for this wonderful evening.

Swadharma #3, Pt.2

After tea break presentation continues…..
17 young participants from different parts of India participated in Swadharma #3, and following program is heartful presentation of each of them. What they have discovered in 5 weeks of intensive research, journey which connected their inner selves to outer reality, and their true potentials. Among all interesting presentations poems were recited, and song sung.

The Swadharma program is a response to the call for an education for our times. It offers young seekers – age 18 to 28 – the opportunity to embark on a transformative learning adventure with the goal of self-discovery. The program is based on the idea that helping young people discover who they are and what brings them alive is not only meaningful at an individual level, but also essential for building a socially just, environmentally sustainable and consciously awakened future.

Taiwanese Pavilion

Taiwanese Pavilion presents Taiwanese culture.
Because of historical circumstances, Taiwan has preserved most Chinese
traditions and culture, including Confucian philosophies and traditional Chinese
calligraphy.
The culture of Taiwan is a blend of Confucianist Han Chinese and Taiwanese aborigines cultures. It also embraces Pacific island cultures and Japanese culture.
Taiwanese cuisine also has several variations: dishes from the people of Hoklo ethnicity and Aboriginal, Hakka, and local derivatives of Chinese cuisine. A notable Japanese influence also exists due to the period when Taiwan was under Japanese rule.
The main intention of the Taiwanese Pavilion is to introduce Taiwanese culture to Aurovillem, focusing on its cultural diversity.
