A collaboration of Ilaignarkal Education Center and Mohanam Cultural Center, brought together the Tamil New Year celebration in Auroville hosted by Visitor Center.
The Ilaignarkal Education Center is involved with teaching and bringing together the Tamil workers of Auroville. The Mohanam Cultural Center experiment with making different sorts of instruments (mainly percussion, string and wind instruments) out of local material.
Almost like a harvest festival many seasonal fruits and vegetables were presented in honor of the Tamil New Year. Astrological predictions were announced as what the coming year would bring. Live traditional Tamil music and dance enhanced the event.

UNITING FOR AUROVILLE’S LAND – HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE RADIO
Auroville Radio brings you quick access to some of the special events held at the Unity Pavilion during February to raise money for buying Auroville’s land. Mandakini, the original organizer of “Acres For Auroville” (A4A) and co-founder of its offshoot “Art For Land”, is a dedicated full-time all-around worker for these large-scale fund raising efforts. She shares the latest results of the A4A campaign and the aims and results of the Art for Land auction. Mandakini tells us about many of the beautiful donors and about different solidarity actions for the land. She also explains the principles followed to make sure that the money donated to buy Auroville’s land is never used for anything else. In this interview we feel Mandakini’s deep, sincere, commitment to Auroville’s growth, and we meet a beautiful soul, dedicated to serving the ideals of Auroville.

A conversational interview between Sankalpa: Art Journeys intern Marichelle Gurski (US) and architect Peter A. (German Aurovilian) on his philosophy behind creating the double-dome structure of the Sankalpa Art Center. Sankalpa is sub-unit of Thamarai, including the center located behind Tibetan Pavilion in the International Zone and the Art Cart parked at Visitor’s Center. Sankalpa provides the community with creative spaces for transformation of both inner and outer worlds, by breaking down the barriers that inhibit self-expression, making art accessible to all, and facilitating human unity through art.
This is an open dialogue about Peter’s journey to Auroville where he found a fascination with geodesic domes and their application in the community. We are given a rare glimpse into the wisdom of the stories he has to tell and how the structure of these domes bring people together.

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.
