This soul of desire is a separative soul of ego and all its instincts are for a separative slef-afirmation; it pushes always openly or under more or less shining masks, for its own growth, for possession, for enjoyment, for conquest and empire.

Dragonfly Kiss

Dragonfly Kiss

We stepped out of the house into the alley, our visible breath smudged by the wind tunnel. At the base of the steps she pulled a lighter to the menthol gripped in her mouth. The arctic breeze blew away each flame in birthday fashion, so I cupped my hands around hers and our campfire was born.
With her eyes on mine, she pulled and I said “Have you ever had a dragonfly kiss before?”…

The Approach
The crowd lowers their murmurs to a vacant silence as she makes her way up the aisle. Finally. Slowly. Unsure. She tiptoes toward you, feet pumping ice water, carrying flowers like a sacred torch, her arm wrapped around her father’s as he delivers her to you one last time.
You await with the stillness of a photograph in the best suit you’ve ever worn. Breathless. Feet so cold, they’re frozen……

Super
“Hey stranger” to you too
I’ve been super. Thanks for asking.
Hey, did you know there are 100 billion planets in our galaxy?
That’s 12 digits
That’s one digit for every month since you sent your last beacon.
I remember because it was the first winter I’d woken up to the dawn
Instead of you.

VOX POP on Summer

We, Yona and Leela, are two Future School students who came to do their first week of volunteering in the AV Radio. We learned to make play lists, edit recordings and for the day before our last we went to two schools in order to ask a couple people the same questions about a hot topic in Auroville at the moment, SUMMER!
No one can escape the heat, not even with the latest rains (which we are all extremely grateful) so we decided that instead of trying to forget about or ignore the weather, we will bring it up and see what people have to say.

Sophia's mission

Sophia is on a mission to treat every dog that she comes across in and around Auroville that is suffering from scabies or maggot wounds. It is her love for animals that drives her everyday to raise awareness about how the diseases are quite treatable. Usually, these diseases go unnoticed and the dog eventually dies.

While Sophia goes around trying to help raise awareness and treat such dogs on her own, anyone who is interested in joining her endeavour is more than welcome to contact her : +91 9566173799

Mr. Anathoo speaking on SAFE FOOD

An interactive session with Mr. Anathoo at Sustainable Livelihood Institute (SLI)
– An activist with deep commitment towards sustainability and involved in setting up several amazing ventures related to organic farming including ReStore (www.restore.org.in),OFM (www.ofmtn.in) and Tula (tula.org.in), an orgnaic cotton initiative. He has also been recently involved with the anti-GM Mustard campaign as well as the force behind organising the National Seed Savers & Diversity Festival at Anna University, Chennai.
Mr. Anathoo clearly states how commercialization of the agriculture industry is literally poisoning our food and our lives. In his talk in SLI, he presented with some serious facts and figures clearly pointing out the trend the agriculture industry in adopting by allowing practices like genetically modifies seeds which is a great fraud to our nutritional needs but also encourages the culture of heavy fertilizer and pesticide use. He stresses on the urgency on the consumers to become aware and start demanding for standardized and organic produce which is not only healthy to human but also keep the natural cycle of cultivation in check which supports the entire biosphere connected to producing and harvesting crops.
