Marco speaking on Tai-Chi-Chuan

Marco and Krishna offered a valuable workshop for beginners in Tai-Chi-Chuan.
The workshop was held at the famous Tai-Chi hall in Sharanga community, in Auroville. The workshop attracted guest and residents of Auroville. The workshop was conducted for 18 days for 3 hours session each morning. One half of the session were dedicated for mediation and Chi techniques and the other half for learning and practicing the 24-forms of Tai-Chi. In an incredible module of teaching, Marco shared his knowledge and guided the students with a masters touch and was very gentle yet vigilant for people’s slightest of errors. The workshop was an insight not only to learning of the method but an understanding of Chi which exist in and outside our body, which the Chinese referred to as vital force behind each movement.
The Tai-Chi school offers its space every morning throughout the week for people to come and practice Tai-Chi with the masters. Such workshops are unique and life changing for some, as the students attending the workshop give their sharing of experience about the workshop at the end of the interview with Marco.
Auroville is truly at the receiving end of a gift the Tai-Chi school and masters like Marco represent.

I am Yusuf and this is my brother

Mein Huun Yusuf Aur Yeh Hai Mera Bhai, a play by Aasaktha, Pune.
Playwright Amir Nizar Zuabi, directed by Mahit Takalkar.

One of the last performances within remembering Veenapani month long festival at Adishkati last night touched one of painful moments of human history, and as one Palestinian poet points out: These tears that we shed, should be for those still breathing.

Story of three – Yusuf, Ali and Nada remembering 1948 when the British mandate ended in Palestine, and the Un was voting on who will control what part of the land… Love story between Ali and Nada, and friendship between mentally challenged Yusuf and Ali, who , as we find out in the end, is responsible for Yusuf’s condition.
Powerfull story, amazing acting
