Mr. Laksminarayanan from SLI

Mr. Laksminarayanan, former AD panchayat, Govt. of Tamil Nadu, & Currently liaison officer, SLI ( Sustainable Livelihood Institute ).
He has over 40 years of experience in working with the grassroot governance institutions. He delivers a powerful presentation, educating the locals upon the up coming panchayat elections. Mr. Laksminarayanan emphasis on the fact that every voting member is a part of ‘graham sabha ‘ and in turn has judiciary powers of the elected panchayat official, if required so. He educates, that Tamil Nadu has had a history of local panchayat governance right from 700 A.D. , and points out to various policies for qualification and disqualification of elected members which have been made clear, even in that era. He emphasis on the role of the Graham Sabha and highlights to the fact, every voting member is automatically a member of the graham sabha and has judiciary powers over the elected members and can bring them to accountability if required. Mr. Laksminarayanan dwells upon these serious issues with a rather jolly mood and reminds the people that, gone are the days when elected members of panchayat can favoritism of any kind and the elected members must work diligently to make sure all the basic needs of villagers are met. He is responsible in his professional life, to have lead and caused up to 31 panchayat elected official, to be disqualified and resign.

Vox Pop on Roundabout

VOX POP: it is about taking up any existing issue and collecting opinion from the people about the issue.
This Vox Pop is all about the round about in Auroville near the solar kitchen, and the problems faced by the people while riding and walking across the round about.
We also have the official voice bite from the architect Jan, who has shared his ideas and views from his experience.

Pondicherry Equestrian Challenge

The Pondicherry Equestrian Challenge (PEC) 2016 has been organized for two weeks at the RED EARTH RIDING SCHOOL, Auroville. Many riders from Bangalore, Chennai, Cuddalore, Tirupur, Pondicherry and Auroville have participated in the wonderful event.

The local residents and guests and visitors of Auroville enjoyed the Jumping Challenge at this PEC 2016. Events like these make youth energized says a visitor.

Parents should make sure of making their children involve in various sports and extra curricular activities which helps their growth in an inclusive manner rather than forcing them to stick to books alone. Books provide knowledge and wisdom and activities like these promotes holistic development.

Cash prizes were given to the winners in three categories. CAT A: 135 Cms, CAT B: 120 Cms and CAT C: 110 Cms.

The interesting thing about these competitions was that students of grade 8 have taken part. Therefore, there were various levels of competitions depending on the height of their strengths.

Programs like these should be encouraged by governments and the civil societies to develop a spirit for Equestrian culture, says Sri, a resident of Auroville.

Fair Trade & Climate Change Walk

‘Go Push go’ were the words heard from the group of people supporting Pushpanath for the 450 km long walk, which commenced from Gandhi Thidal in Pondicherry on the 20th of November, Friday.
The intention of the walk is to create awareness about climate change and support the newly proposed Fair Trade Twin Towns – Pondicherry and Auroville.
Even though the 64 year old activist has ‘ageing legs’, as he said, the ‘extra-ordinary’ downpour of rain, in fact encouraged him more for the walk, as the cause for the same was more important and needed for the living community around the globe.
The first stop being Auroville, we saw Push sipping cups of chai and grabbing some pieces of cake at the Visitor’s Centre. Listen to what he has to say about the incredible journey and his ideas of climate change.
Join hands with him by knowing more about his stops between Pondicherry and Ooty, his final destination. The walk ends on the 10th of December!
