49th Foundation Day of Auroville

Right after the sunrise bonfire at the Matrimandir, Aurovillians have participated in the photo gathering at Tibetian Pavilion on 28 February 2017 to celebrate the 49th Foundation Day of Auroville.

Participants were formed in the shape of ‘The Mother’s symbol’ which resembles the message of human unity and and divine consciousness. The photos were captured by the drone camera organized by Max and other members of Auroville International.

Speaking to Auroville Radio, Mr. Julia, an American who has been at Auroville International since its foundation said that this 49th Foundation Day is just special because Auroville would be gearing up for the golden jubilee celebrations next year and would cherish all the activities done so far at Auroville. He also thanked the local authorities especially the people of Pondicherry who have been generous is extending help and the helping spread the mission of human unity and peace for global development and divine consciousness.

Kavitha from Youth Link and Anandi from the Realization of Auroville have expressed their views at the program.

How can we restructure the TDC ?

Presentation by the core group, selected to come up with ‘Terms of Reference’ which will further enable the Auroville Council, and the community on the whole in fulfilling this daunting task of re-structuring the Town Planning & Development Council (TDC). Last year, the Auroville council was asked to facilitate a process to restructure the TDC, the core group working on this comprised of Martin, Sauro, Pashi, Shama, Suhasini, Mamta, Elvira, Lionel and Christiane. The presentation was fully loaded with useful content and consist of guidelines through which restructuring of TDC could be accomplished. The depth of the content and the importance of this procedure saw the meeting going into overtime with only a few people ready to leave this discussion midway. A lot of healthy debate and constructive insights were offered by the members of the community attending the presentation. The group had invited a special artist to create infographics (www.weibkekodi.de) to help break down the heavy content and had created many posters and charts to help envision the key points in reference and the overall presentation was concise. But a point noted by Sauro was, “in the meeting too much time was used in discussing the organization and selection process rather than the content” but maybe that underscores the people’s intimate involvement and keen sense for details for restructuring of one of our most important working group, which will directly be responsible in shaping our future in Auroville.

BCC presents Auroville accounts

The BCC has taken an initiative to hold open meeting with the members of the community, in their effort to make matters more simpler. The presentation speaks about the accounting performance for the year 2016-17 in comparison to the previous year, 2015-16.
The presentation was given jointly by members of Budget Cordination Commitee, BCC, which is a sub group of the FAMC, member from Human Resource Team, HRT, which is subgroup to BCC.
This is seen as a healthy move and generally in a good direction as during the presentation it was noticed, community members were able to share their grievances but also were able to seek relevant information, thus strengthening the notion of transparency of the systems.
Many suggestions were provided to the presenting group by the members attending the presentation which indicates such presentations act as a bridging instruments and should be encouraged. A major topic of the discussion was the status quo of maintenance and the policies surrounding it, a notion was passed around to have a study group formed which can formulate and help finalize maintenance policies which the community at large can comprehend and are in line with the ideals of Auroville.

CAT11: Progressive Economy

Economy is the topic everyone in Auroville is pondering on and has a reasonable idea on what is going wrong, but how to get it in line with the ideals of Auroville is the question?
How can the economy of our future be, progressive, inclusive and sustainable?
The Lotus group, represented by Micheal and Yves made a fantastic presentation in the last CAT’s get together. The presentation was structured, rehearsed and beautifully articulated. It was designed in a unique manner, so that all the content of the matter is properly presented and no clutter of opinions is created. All the questions regarding the presentation can be directed to the Lotus group for which they will answer on the Auronet. Anyone who has an opinion or wants an idea on economy must listen to this program and then participate in the series of round table discussions which will be organized by the group to formulate their final proposal which hopefully can be presented and later acted upon by the Community.

GM for SolarPower Plant by Varuna

“The solar light is the symbol of the supra-mental light ” – The Mother said

Varuna is shining bright like the sun, so to speak. A Genaral Meeting was organized by Varuna and TDC to discuss the revised site application for the Solar Plant, it has proposed for Auroville. The meeting was packed with people from Auroville, obviously demonstrating the magnitude of this project. The Solar Power Plant, which proposes to take care of the electrical needs of the entire community for 50,000 future inhabitants of Auroville, had come across a kind of road block regarding the location of the site it had been allocated earlier. The matter was pending and was needed to be addressed by the residents along with the groups involved. In the spirit of Auroville, where mutual respect is above personal ambition, the Varuna team, made ingenious amendments and by the end of their presentation, the general feeling was that they have found out a way to keep the balance in opinions and integrity of their project intact. Much kudos to Varuna for envisioning such a remarkable project along with the state of the art desalination plant and the uphill power storage project all of which are discussed in detail in the presentation. Very soon Varuna can expect list of recommendation for site application from TDC after which it will follow its general procedure and will be posted in the News&Notes for mandatory two weeks notice and if all goes well, finally commence work on this new land for the project. All we can say is, let the force be with you.
