Collective Transport

This morning we had Raju of Auroville Vehicle Service , and his year and half old daughter Yamuna visiting us in the studio.
Raju is the man standing behind AV Vehicle Service, and he talks about all that they do, and initiatives he is involved in.
Passionate about transport and Auroville community they have started AV Vehicle Service in 2001 providing different ways of help to the member of the community, long term guest and AV workers regarding vehicles, and driving incenses, insurances …. They are liason between the community and Pondicherry and Tamil Nadu Transport Department.
Unfurtunately new law will impose on foreign members of the community with an option to obtain a driving licensee according to the validity of the visa.
Raju talks about Accessible Bus which after a year of operating does run on a plus, providing transport to members and visitors  to Pondicherry  and SriMa Beach.
Shortly we talked also about the new parking shed coming up at the Town Hall, which will give space to 30 official rental cycles …
Raju is looking ahead with the community and its needs in the vision along with care about our environment …

Interview with Anna Bohlmark

Anna Bohlmark, a film maker from Sweden is in Auroville, to experience Auroville and give an experience to people for Auroville through her film, Fog of Bwindi. It is a very heart touching short film, which is more of documentary of events which occurred in 1991, when the Uganda government decided (with the backing of World Bank) to convert the Bwindi forest area into a protected national park. And in order to make successful this decision, the government had to evacuate and literally remove the indigenous people of that region, the pygmies of the Batwa tribe. The national park is a big tourist attraction, paying 500US$ per person to observe and engage with the endangered species of guerrilla. The government completely undersighted the relationship of the Batwa pygmies who have inhabitated those regions for 1000’s of years. The pygmies now find themselves, without their home nor land to basically survive upon. No help, support or rehabilitation plan was prepared for evacuation of nearly 6000 pygmies. Anna through her film, ventures deep into the lives of these unique and indigenous people to tell state of what occurred in their lives, when their own government abandoned them with any show or cause.

TCV in Deep Gratitude

It is moving to see child’s sincere and deep gratitude….it does touch one’s heart…
And last night at Pavilion of Tibetan Culture in Internatinal Zone we have witnessed that by 15 children from Tibetan Children’s Village who have stayed in Auroville for 6 weeks as exchange students. They have learned many new thing, they have been involved in daily life, even volunteered at the 10th AV Marathon, and more. Colorful exhibition with their products, pottery works, and with written letters from each of them clearly express it.
Part of what they have been doing, they presented: from humble invocation song to dance performances (where their playfulness on the transition to adulthood, showed that they are children, youth, as any other)
This year exchanges were fully supported by ex TCV students, Kalsang explained after the presentation.

A Film on Pygmies from Bwindi

Documentary –

* FOG OF BWINDI

Uganda, 2015, Dir. Anna Bohlmark, 25 minutes, Documentary, English with English subtitles, Rated: G

For thousands of years the Batwa (a pygmy tribe) lived in harmony with the mountain gorillas in the Bwindi forest, south Western part of Uganda. In 1991, when the Bwindi forest became a world heritage, the pygmies were forcefully evacuated from the forest to leave space for the endangered gorillas. The mountain gorillas have become one of Africa´s biggest tourist attractions. But what happened to the Batwas?

This documentary give a frightening insight in a society that places economic interests above all others including human dignity.

Experience of Integral Psychology

As a weekly ongoing series of discussions on “Integral Psychology”, this week the group was discussing on – their experience of integral psychology in Auroville.
This was a special meet, lead by a profound researcher and guest to Auroville, Abha.
The group explores on personal instances and insights they might have gathered while interacting and living in Auroville. A place where the integral yoga is not just a theory but also in practice, it is interesting to understand what experiences guests and researchers of various fields experience in Auroville.
