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.
Last night premiere of Vinu Karthick play Once Upon a River at Sri Aurobindo Aduitorium, Bharat Nivas, Pavilion of India once again proved that our community with its bioregion does have lots of talent. Further, collaboration with many of good will and creative ideas brings that extra flavor to the whole thing.
about the play
As Vinu says “It is eternal story, but with a twist” Oncde Upona a River is a playful comedy with lots of music , touching the areas of relationships with a pull between Love and Passion. For the twist one of the celestial beings Narad manage to create chaos with manipulative question – which is more essential for the perfect relationship either Love or Passion? ….. with the amusement of Narad chaos begins destroying the illusion on perfection…
at the end ….Happy End.
The play will be played also tonight and tomorrow night – 8pm at Bharat Nivas.
