About the cyclone that struck Auroville and Pondicherry on the night of December 5th 1972 the Mother wrote….It is a warning that the nature is giving, that those who do not have the true
spirit of Auroville will have to change or to go if they do not want to change.
Why are we on earth?
To find the Divine who is in each of us and in all things.
The Words of The Mother, Vol.14

The meaning behind a tree

The old and symbolic mother-tree of Upasana felt over their roof during the last cyclone in Auroville. But Uma, the funder of the organization, has decided to keep material frustration aside and focus on the meanings behind this event. Next to the construction site she talks about Upasana, its foundations and the effects of the cyclone over the building and community.

“Taking it gracefully, ear what mother nature have to say, ear what future have to say; and what will be our actions aligned to that is what is more important to me than anything else” she reflects; and finishes sharing with Auroville Radio her impressions and activities during the day in which cyclone Thane visit our community.

After Cyclone Priority

The Working Committee member Daniel talks about the rehabilitation work happening in Auroville after the Thane cyclone. The most urgent matter is the restoring of the electricity since Auroville depends 100% on water pumped by the borewells. The electrical distribution lines are totally destroyed. About 150 electrical poles are broken and only 50 of them are available. It is estimated that the recovery of electrical power in all the different communities will take around one month. The next week most probably the school will open.

The wood also is another matter of concern since there are villages claiming ownership over the fallen trees, to cut them and sell it. Auroville wants to centralize the collection of the wood to avoid its disappearance.

Beach side one week after cyclone

The beach side was heavily damaged during the cyclone. One week after, reconstruction work is going on. In the town Periyamudaliarchavadi, people were helping government working men clearing away fallen trees to restore electricity lines. Near Repos beach lives Bhaga, already for 20 years now. She gives an account of what happened. During our interview, reconstruction workers entered her back garden with heavy machinery. This ended our talk prematurely, as Bhaga had to go outside to prevent the machine doing too much destruction.
