Chloe's performance at LFA

Chloe performed an interesting piece of music out of old tapes and systems. Her performance was intriguing as she created music through waste. The performance was a potpourri of jazz music, conversations and other genres of music.

Namaspamus Brass Band

Eight young musicians from Marseilles, France, with their brass instruments played a variety of pop dance songs, and created a refreshing festive atmosphere.
Although the concert took place on a Monday evening, the youth and volunteers found the charming vibes irresistible and took to the dance floor.
The musicians were interacting with the audience with a light sense of humour. It was a surprise to find such a joyful concert at the Youth Centre.

Exploring Democratic Classrooms

Heidi Watts and Chris Sperry explored the concept of democratic classrooms over decades in different types of schools in the United States. Democratic schools encourage students to make their own decisions as a student community. This practice cultivates student ownership and student responsibility. In Auroville’s Teacher Center both, teachers and parents discussed the chances and challenges as well as opportunities and limits to student decisions. The final conclusion: Let’s meet again on that topic!

Nalaikki Fair – Amando Band

For the very end of musical program we heard Amando Band with Amando, Dhani and Peter.
Audience was on their feet, thrilled, and let them go off the stage reluctantly.
But the evening has not concluded yet … still fire juggling was offered, some more music….
After some years , we can clearly say , yes, regardless the date, Christmas spirit is back in town

Nalaikki Fair – Blues

Nalaikki Fair – Dinner Jam

While dinner has been served with abundance of very diverse and good food, Dhani, Eduardo and Egmont were jamming on the main stage of the Youth Centre.
Giant Butterflies has paraded once more through – this time with the lights on.

Nalaikki Fair – Temple Rock

Despite that traditional Christmas Fair at Youth Centre was held yesterday 7th of January 2017 with the appropriate name “Malaikki Fair” the Christmas spirit was present …. maybe also due to the fact that in some parts of our planet, like Ethiopia it was last night the Christmas evening …. anyhow, all was fine, joyful cheerful, as many Christmas fairs in the past…
Musical part of the fair started in the middle of the afternoon with Krishna Temple Rock with Krishna, Matthew and Shanks.

'Accessible Puducherry'- Workshop

Satya Special School organized a Workshop on “ACCESSIBLE PUDUCHERRY – A STEP TOWARDS AN INCLUSION” on 21st October 2016 at Convention cum Cultural Center, Pondicherry University (A Central Univeristy). Department of Social Work has taken a profound initiative by hosting the event.

India has an estimated 70 million disabled people. Most of them remain confined to their homes due to complete lack of accessible infrastructure. Any attempt to travel, enter buildings, parks, shops etc can be impossible, unsafe or humiliating. They, therefore remain unseen, unheard, unaccounted and are rightly called – an invisible minority.
Accessibility has been one of the most neglected issues in the disability sector in India and is probably one of the crucial factors that can free up the potential and availability of opportunities for disabled people.

The Disability Act (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) was passed by the Indian Parliament in 1995. The Act mandates non-discrimination in transportation and the built environment. However, there has not been much progress so far on these aspects, in India.

Access and Accessible refer to the freedom of choice to enter approach, communicate or make use of a situation or environment without assistance and undue difficulties.
Keeping the above, the following objectives were focused at the workshop:

1. Create awareness on accessibility among various stake-holders
2. Current status on accessibility in Puducherry
3. Road map towards an inclusive Puducherry

And the distinguished Speakers for Accessibility workshop are:

Dr. Chdambaram for the topic ‘Accessibility in Educational institutions – Pondicherry University’ ; Mr. Alkahj for ‘African Perspective on Accessibility – CIAI Pondicherry’ ; Mr. Sudhakar for ‘Accessibility Aids and its Importance – Mobility India’; Dr. Srinivas Murthy for ‘Accessibility for persons with mental disability’ ; Ms. Susmita for Accessible Auroville and Dr. Gulam for ‘Accessibility in Developed countries’ – Pondicherry university
