The Auroville Water Challenge Pt1

It is a huge challenge to provide usable water for the world’s population. The United Nations warns that water use worldwide is growing at twice the rate of population growth. Unless this trend is reversed, two-thirds of the global population will face water “stress” by 2025. And India is one of the countries that will be most critically affected.

In fact, our bioregion is already severely water-stressed, and Auroville itself has seen its first aquifer almost exhausted and falling water levels and increasing mineralisation in some of the other aquifers, in spite of the important work done by Aurovilians in afforestation and in controlling run-off.

What is Auroville doing to respond to this challenge? What are the essential elements of a successful water management plan that will enable us to achieve self-sufficiency in our water supply?

The Joy of Learning initiative is planning two sessions to increase the community’s level of ‘water literacy’ and its understanding of this topic.

Our presenters are:

Tom – ‘Why should you care?’

Giulio – ‘Where is our ground water? A geological overview’

Deoyani – ‘Protecting and managing our soil for water conservation’

This session on ‘The Water Challenge’ was recorded on Monday, 31st August, at 4.30 in the SAIIER Conference Hall.

Lots of LOVE

In an short interview with Kalsang – although it is her  birthday today, that was  not the reason for her visit at the radio – with talked about many things, from her life story, to work at International Zone, and her invitation to a Lunch Buffet For Fund Raising this Sunday 20th at Pavilion of Tibetan Culture in International Zone. As Kalsang with gratitude and joy on her face says in between – small or big, one drop can make an ocean ….
From Sunday onward at the pavilion they will be keeping “Lakhar” or White Wednesday, a day which is celebrate for past three years to remember the roots, and support all those Tibetans who are suffering. At Pavilion of Tibetan Culture they would from next week on celebrate it with screening a movie or documentary, followed by light, vegetarian dinner, of which proceeding will be for Kalsang and her family home.

Savitri Book 7, Canto 5, (part 2)

The Second Part

Then through a tunnel dug in the last rock

A house was there all made of flame and light
And crossing a wall of doorless living fire
There suddenly she met her secret soul.
In the slow process of the evolving spirit,
In the brief stade between a death and birth
A first perfection’s stage is reached at last;
