Schools Reopens, O – Blood

Water Group informs us that in an effort to conserve our dwindling water resources in the City Centre, has asked Auroville Water Service to stop filling tankers from the City Centre. Water should be sourced from more abundant areas in Auroville, however, drinking water absolutely takes priority. The next step in water conservation is to ask all construction sites to supply their water via tankers (again filled outside of the City Centre).

Absence of love and fellow-feeling is not necessary for nearness to the Divine; on the contrary , a sense of closeness and oneness with others is apart of the divine consciousness into which the sadhak enters by nearness to the Divine and the feeling of oneness with the Divine. …In this yoga the feeling of unity with others, love, universal joy and Ananda are an essential part of the liberation and perfection which are the aim of the sadhana.

A Review of 'In An Antique Land'

In this segment, I review ‘In An Antique Land’ written by Amitav Ghosh in 1992. The book follows two main narratives, the first is the anthropological account of Ghosh’s time in Egyptian villages in the present and the other is the life of a trader named Abraham Ben Yiju in the past. As an Indian anthropology student, this book was immediately fascinating to me because it deals with the dilemma of studying a subject with a dark colonial past as a former colonial subject. Furthermore, the book is ambitious in it’s desire to recreate the past not defined by colonial conquering but one of peaceful cultural and material exchange between two countries (Egypt and India).
