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.

Felabration 2017

Fela Anikulapo Kuti would be 79 years old 15th of October, if had he not died from complications of AIDS in 1997. As the inventor of the enduring and influential Afrobeat music style, the composer of an enormous body of music, and one of the bravest political voices in 20th century African music. A powerful new generation of Nigerian musicians has emerged in that time, and the music they now champion has been dubbed “Afrobeats,” an appropriation of the name Fela gave his original sound during its heyday. The youngest artists on the scene today have no direct memory of Fela, though his legacy is impossible to escape. In this program, we hear from current day Nigerians from multiple generations and genres—fuji, juju, hip-hop (Afrobeats) and highlife—on how they remember this musical giant, and how they reckon with his complex and challenging legacy.

The Skate Park

The Skate Park, is a youth hub, a forest island, and a safe environment to bring families, friends and children together.

Have you heard what is happening at the new Skate Park in Dehashakti?
First of all let me give you directions on how to get there:
If you are driving from the Youth Center towards Fertile, pass Minati and a few hundred meters on your right you will see the Dehashakti sign. Enter and take the very first sharp right. You will be in a skate park in the middle of the forest.

I spoke to Edgar, one of the founders of the Skate Park, and he described a bit of the history and the movement behind it.
Let’s give kudos to the Auroville youth that managed to procure funding to initiate this park; transport the metal ramp originally in Aurovelo to the Skate Park to centralize the activities and improve the layout , so now they have two ramps in the court. With surplus money they even added a staircase to the ramp and built a tree house.
Another cool aspect of this project is that the Skate Park is part of a plan of conservation of the green corridor, which includes the wild life in the area and the forest. The green corridor links to the city center by cycle and foot paths.
The Skate Park as it is now functions already as a youth hub, but also it attracts families – sometimes with very small children. With the addition of a playground and toilets, the park would be ideal.
So far there are quite a few new skaters attending classes twice weekly, and about 20 regular skaters; and there is a yearly event that includes a light- hearted competition, so look out for the announcement of their next event.

One of the chief functions of the physical mind is to doubt. If you listen to it, it will always find thousand reasons for doubting. But you must know that the physical mind is working in ignorance and full of falsehoods.
The Words of The Mother, Vol. 14
