Poppo's Megalithic Museum

Poppo tells us about the living museum he is conserving near the center of Auroville. 2500 year old Cairn circles of sand stone boulders laying 1 meter below have been raised to the surface with meticulous precision to preserving their original form. In the center of these cairns, large granite headstones are found, and occasionally burial urns with earthen pots and metal objects and bones within the circle. All these stones would have been brought from several kilometers and the larger granite pieces from even further away probably near Mailam. Poppo, for over 30 years, has been tirelessly excavating and mapping various sites in Auroville and preserving and rebuilding urns, pot shards and other objects which he displays. You can help Poppo finish this work by contributing to Archeology account number #0123. This open museum helps us remember the mysteries of the past as we construct a city of the future.

Off the Cuff- Andrea, Renu Wazo

In this episode we discuss money inspired by an article posted by Krishna on the volunteer contribution policy change.
The suggested monthly contribution may make it difficult to give the chance to young people to join the many projects were volunteers are very welcome and the Auroville projects are also not in a position to be able to cover these expenses.
The radio alone has developed thanks to some 250 highly skilled volunteers and interns. The question of centralized money and decentralized skills have all to be appreciated for the energy they bring and a balance found between our view of energy – be it money or work.
