Listen to Manoj Das, as he illuminates on the topic ‘man in transition’ which he redefined as ‘transition with a difference’. Manoj Das was addressing the students from California Institute of Integral Studies, CIIS. Visiting Auroville to learn and share knowledge on different aspects of Integral Yoga. The students were in for a treat as Manoj Das, one of the greatest story teller in India was in mood to create deep insights and share remarkable candid moments from international history, most of which unheard of. The atmosphere was kept very light yet profound by the jovial speaker who in his own way, was feeding the curious students with information which suits their endeavor. A mixture of core science, philosophy, history, politics, spirituality, literature, psychology was served in manner of casual interaction, for which he must be truly appreciated. Manoj Das from the Ashram also shared his own personal journey, upto the point he is today in a very frank and modest manner. It was upto the listener to deepen his grasp because the flow of information was truly profound and inspired a spark of true wisdom. Only in Auroville, is this blend of all worlds possible, a true blessing.

George Michael (Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou), singer and songwriter, born 25 June 1963; died 25 December 2016
George Michael, who has died aged 53 of heart failure, was Britains biggest pop star of the 1980s, first with the pop duo Wham! and then as a solo artist. After Wham! made their initial chart breakthrough with the single Young Guns (Go for It) in 1982, Michaels songwriting gift brought them giant hits including Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go and Im Your Man, and they became leading lights of the 80s boom in British pop music, alongside Culture Club and Duran Duran. His first solo album, Faith (1987), sold 25m copies, and Michael sold more than 100m albums worldwide with Wham! and under his own name.
Michael remained a major figure in the music industry even when his record releases slowed to a trickle in the later part of his career, and a loyal fan base ensured that his concert tours always sold out. However, from the late 1990s onwards he was beset by a string of personal crises and clashes with the law caused by drug use. He had always felt ambivalent about the demands of stardom, and found it difficult to balance his celebrity status with his private life. After years of concealing his homosexuality, he eventually came out in 1998, after being arrested for engaging in a lewd act in a public lavatory in Beverly Hills, California.
