This soul of desire is a separative soul of ego and all its instincts are for a separative slef-afirmation; it pushes always openly or under more or less shining masks, for its own growth, for possession, for enjoyment, for conquest and empire.

The Auroville Council and the Working Committee inform us on daily operations at Entry Service

Water Group says : ” So saving water is critical. It is NOT the time to plant anything new. It is NOT the time to refill your massive swimming pools. It is NOT the time to water the roads, as much as it helps to keep the dust down. It is NOT the time to water your lawns, or keep your ornamental gardens lush and green. It IS the time to prioritize your water usage, and have honest conversations within your communities about water usage in communal spaces. It IS the time to save water in every possible way, and to encourage respectfully others in the community to do the same.”

Water Crisis

Few days back working groups announced the water crisis, and pleaded the community to be careful in usage of our water. This morning we hosted Tom and Ing-Marie from Water group with updates, and currents situation on water .
Tom in details explains where do we get our water from, and what would be the steps in extreme situation or crisis, in which we are headed if there would be no rainfall in near future. Ing-Maries shares some tips on how to save water, with emphasis that those, and more, are available on the web page of Water Group.
The group sees future of our water in rain harvesting.
Still, situation is severe, and it will take an awareness, and committed acts of each of us to face water crisis.

Our Water, Our Life

From Water Group Ing-Marie has visited us in the studio, and we talked on few different topics revolving around the ground necessity of our life – WATER.
Since we do live in a city with water sensitivity, how do we perceive it as a community?
Current Water Group started in 2015 (not the first, and most likely not the last) as an advisory body to TDC, consisting of members of different walks of life. They are trying to put together an integrated water management for the city. They are trying to raise the awareness on water sensitivity of the ground reality in our city. In whole this process they would like community to be deeply involved, they would like to increase the water “literacy”, they are trying to put up an interactive web page….
As one of the recent attempts to reach out to each member of the community is a call for photo contest with – What could depict the essence of Auroville Water? whereby any format or size …. are welcomed, and the author of winning photo will be fully credited for it. Deadline 15th of March.
