How it feels when you finally ‘realise’ that this is what you’ve been looking for…
On Tuesday, 18th April 2017, SAVI hosted a volunteer presentation in Tibetan Pavillion, two volunteers Jyothirmayee and Mayank, working in Kenjis Japanese Carpentry workshop” shared their life experience and how Auroville managed to give them what they have been looking for their whole life. They shared how they managed to deal with all the problems , how they managed to keep their basket full of questions aside and have an empty basket for answers on them. Jyothirmayee told a story how she felt magic happening when her 40 year plan started in like a snap. Mayank shared his love for wood, how they speak to him. After years of struggle inside out, they found something they have been looking for.
All you need to do for yourself is keep cleaning the stream of your flow and to put mind, body and heart in harmony and the magic will happen. This is how one can find that one “thing” they are looking for.
The applaud at the end of each talk spoke how everyone was so deeply touched by their stories.

Considering key words such as do it yourself, local manufacturing, low environmental impact, economic, repairable, and for all, how sustainable and environment friendly are some innovative inventions such as solar panels?
While working on technical solutions, how much do we ease our impact on the environment? Has Low-Tech Lab considered focusing on educating people to be more in tunes with nature?
A brief interview with Clement and Camille from Low-Tech Lab, and Mitia from Joy of Impermanence (Auroville).
The Divine expresses itself in many ways….
water, in different forms, starting with a single drop, forming cascade in lotus pond, or a river stream; many droplets form a rain … and all leads into the ocean

Monday 6th March we’ve recorded the debate on Auroville’s Waste Water Treatment Plant International Meeting. This was the first time that waste water was handled collectively (for Residential Zones 1&2) instead of at the community level. The Town Developing Council shared information about the WWTP, including the route of the sewer lines, the dewat/vortex technology used at the plant how the purified water will be returned, about the laying of the pipes and the management plan of the WWTP. The TDC tryied to answer to concerns and questions the audience asked while we felt a certain amount of excitement in the hall.
ILHAAM is a fruit of an improbable encounter of an Israeli & Franco Lebanese. This meeting happened on a travelling circus for peace between Israel & Palestine. They combine world/pop/soul from their own kind with quantum electronics. The distinctive voice of Nina & the musicality of her partner Omri (multi-instrumentalist, beatbox, voice) create a sound that inspire us to dream & revolutionize our listening habits.
