Bridging The Gap

Bhavya, an active volunteer at the Bridging the Gap program, tells us what the program aspires to do. Bridging the Gap is a three month course with an impressive and ambitious objective that has had a deep impact on several children. On the 3rd of December, children from several schools gathered together for the community event during which there was joyous dancing, a parade, many interactive games and goodies like popcorn and cotton candy. Beneath all the celebration, there were many obstacles that stood in the way of triumph, and Bhavya reveals what they were and how they successfully overcame them. She also talks about the change the movement has sparked and how it has empowered children to freely discuss topics that were considered a taboo earlier.

A New Step For Auroville

Patrizia Saccá is a paralympic table tennis champion who overcame her disabilities by becoming a champion. She describes her visit to Auroville in Italian translated to English by her friend, Susmita. She is in awe of the Matrimandir and recalls her visit to the inner chamber with the help of Susmita, who is a pioneer of the Accessible Auroville project. She describes in vivid detail how the peaceful atmosphere made her feel, and the reason that she keeps going back to relive the experience. The interview is conducted outside the Matrimandir, the place that inspires Patrizia.
They also discuss the concept of human unity, which they feel goes beyond goes caste and color to include people with disabilities. Susmita and she remind us that we are, above all, human beings and we deserve to feel equally loved and respected. They shed light upon the importance of the issue of accessibility and are confident that a new step for the City That The Earth Needs is making Auroville fully accessible at all fronts. Patrizia also shares with us the secret behind her success and positivity in life.
