An amazing ability to improvise.
The best place to play for spontaneity is in a cafe, not on stage.
What does it mean to be a woman in Indian culture?

The ‘After-Meeting Interview’

Should we open Auroville’s doors and allow people to find out for themselves if the ‘city of dawn’ is their community; or should we assume the responsibility to select candidates carefully?
How can we avoid the Entry Service to be closed for such a long time?
Do New Comers feel under scrutiny during the one year process?
What can we do to involve more Tamil New Comers and Aurovillians to these meetings?

Auroville Radio asks participants of the meeting to express their view.

Le Pavillon de France présente

« Le nid du vent : recherche dystopique » Une « en-quête » sur l’habiter, l’utopie et la dystopie
Présentée par Julie Beauté, étudiante en éco-philosophie à Paris

Comment habitons-nous la Terre ? Quelle place nous donnons-nous, êtres vivants, les un-e-s les autres, les un-e-s avec les autres ? Quelles tranches de vies partageons-nous ? Comment construisons-nous notre demeure dans le monde ? Comment nos vies se pelotonnent-elles pour faire tomber les frontières de nos identités ?

C’est à ces questions que Julie, étudiante en éco-philosophie à Paris et actuellement volontaire à Auro-Orchard, tente de répondre. Elle partagera sa recherche en cours, en proposant de s’interroger sur la question de l’habiter, sur les notions d’utopie et de dystopie, sur les concepts de maison et de chez-soi – et leurs revers. Sortant des bibliothèques et s’implantant dans la terre et dans les romans (notamment de science-fiction), elle dressera l’esquisse d’une « philosophie de terrain » en train de se faire, pour tenter de comprendre comment les vies se mêlent, s’entrelacent et se confondent dans les replis du monde.

Radio as vehicle of information

Brief interview with attendees of the General Meeting held at Unity Pavilion on Monday the 24th of April. The topic was to discuss a proposal to restructure the Town Development Council.
Some of the comments made were that “”we need more collaboration in order to develop Auroville together”; “we need more involvement by residents in these meetings”;” and “we could submit our questions prior to the meeting””.
Generally everybody agrees that “overall, these meetings and the way they are prepared show a good attempt in moving towards the development of Auroville”.

Savitri, B. II, C. XIII

Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto XIII, In The Self Of Mind, Pages 283 – 288

King Aswapathy reaches the silent Self of Mind at the summit of the mental worlds and feels that he has arrived at his goal. But a ray of light falls upon all things seen or touched or heard or felt, and showed his mind that nothing could be known. He must reach “That”, the true source of all knowledge. Sri Aurobindo poetically describes and destroys all the value of the planes of Mind which the traveler has been through so far, and the immortal spirit of the king is imprisoned in a world where all must die to live and live to die.

Celebrating Tamil New Year 2017

A collaboration of Ilaignarkal Education Center and Mohanam Cultural Center, brought together the Tamil New Year celebration in Auroville hosted by Visitor Center.
The Ilaignarkal Education Center is involved with teaching and bringing together the Tamil workers of Auroville. The Mohanam Cultural Center experiment with making different sorts of instruments (mainly percussion, string and wind instruments) out of local material.
Almost like a harvest festival many seasonal fruits and vegetables were presented in honor of the Tamil New Year. Astrological predictions were announced as what the coming year would bring. Live traditional Tamil music and dance enhanced the event.

The Low-Tech Lab meets Auroville

The Low-Tech Lab, an initiative of young ingenious inventors working together to meet basic needs of humanity in a creative sustainable and environmental friendly approach.
One of the main focuses of Low-Tech Lab is working on a global collaborative research program and open-source documentation.
Their next step is to locate a suitable common ground for these inventors and engineers to gather and work together. Could this common space be offered by Auroville?
