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.

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.

Auroville Economy Fundamentals

A new study group has been inspired, to brainstorm and create a resolute economy structure for Auroville of the future. Spearheading this endeavor is Jaya and Divyanshi, in collaboration with other team members. We have a tendency of approaching economy in a very logic frame of mind, based on financial rules and principles and tend to have rigid parameters, here we have a refreshing new approach to economy with spirituality at its base, guided by the principles of only The Mother, and fundamentals derived from interpretation of the Matri-Mandir gardens. Yes! the Matrimandir gardens is like a matrix in its own, gifted to us by the Mother and can bring enormous insights into designing of lifestyles and ecosystems, as Jaya elaborates in this interview. They propose, for an out-of-the-box solution is required to shape an economy, which should have no parallel in the world, as it should very well be like an invention, such is the theme set for Auroville. It is an interesting and thought provoking point-of-view where you have flowers, gardens, spirit and feelings as a vocabulary to design an economy which serves the people rather than an economy designed to enslave the talent and power humans can produce. This group has started off with small steps but with great intensity into research and problem solving methods, starting right from the micro level and building up the economy story.
Anyone listening to this interview and is related to Auroville economy must consider offering time and energy to this special group, determined to achieve The Mother’s Dream, “Money is no longer the sovereign lord of people”

LFA2017 Trashion Show

This year campaign of Litter Free Auroville was to bring the community together , to look at our trash. And we might not have done it in big scale past few weeks, but surely Trashion Show brought most of us into Visitor’s Centre.
We were dazzled, amazed by creation , a transformation of material  which in other circumstances might be considered as a  trash, yet we saw wonderful “high cotoure” design of individuals and units.
Auroville has witnessed this kind of transformation 7 years back, and after intensive work of Wastelss, Upcycling Studio and Eco Service….was about time to be reminded again that the attitude we have to our trash matters.

On the stage we saw many models of all ages, some even designers of the dress that was worn.
Before the beginning of Trahsion Show Unicorn Collective shared a dance of a giant couple(puppets), and recycling rap group tuned us into the show.
For uplifted spirit of the event we can also thank unstoppable Jesse as MC , and Matthia in charge of sound.
