“There is a domain far above the mind which we could call the world of Harmony and, if you can reach there, you will find the root of all harmony that has been manifested in whatever form upon earth. For instance, there is a certain line of music, consisting of a few supreme notes, that was behind the productions of two artists who came one after another – one a concerto of Bach, another a concerto of Beethoven. The two are not alike on paper and differ to the but in their essence they are the same. One and the same vibration of consciousness, one wave of significant harmony touched both these artists. Beethoven caught a larger part, but in him it was more mixed with the inventions and interpolations of his mind; Bach received less, but what he seized of it was purer. The vibration was that of victorious emergence of consciousness, consciousness tearing itself out of unconsciousness in a triumphant uprising and birth.

The Mother

Welcome to ‘A Library Of Things’

Alot – A Library Of Things is an initiative taken by Earth&Us, which is an Auroville unit working as sustainability consultants and resource management experts.
We tend to own a lot of things but seldom use all of the things we possess, resulting in clutter in our cupboards and our lives. We want to possess and store things to satisfy the impatience of having things readily available for our use, even it is just a one time use.
Earth&Us have come up with a solution. Alot, which acts as library of things, literally. The idea is to have collective archive of tools and products which can be accessed by the community and returned back to the library, making it readily available for others to re-use. This takes away the huge burden of purchasing, storing and maintaining a lot of our things. Imagine buying a drilling machine, to put few shelves and not finding a need for it for next few years or the toys the children get bored of faster than even seasons can change. Mass consumptions demands mass production and ultimately causes mass destruction of our natural resources. The library of things poses as a hope of not only giving respect to the great tools we invent but also paves way for a community to come closer and relate to each other through the service of sharing. This is an innovative concept which will of course go through its teething process and as a progressive community, who encourages collective sharing, we must take initiative to support this new venture, which promises to bring abundance and a joy of sharing in our lives.

Mr. Anathoo speaking on SAFE FOOD

An interactive session with Mr. Anathoo at Sustainable Livelihood Institute (SLI)
– An activist with deep commitment towards sustainability and involved in setting up several amazing ventures related to organic farming including ReStore (www.restore.org.in),OFM (www.ofmtn.in) and Tula (tula.org.in), an orgnaic cotton initiative. He has also been recently involved with the anti-GM Mustard campaign as well as the force behind organising the National Seed Savers & Diversity Festival at Anna University, Chennai.
Mr. Anathoo clearly states how commercialization of the agriculture industry is literally poisoning our food and our lives. In his talk in SLI, he presented with some serious facts and figures clearly pointing out the trend the agriculture industry in adopting by allowing practices like genetically modifies seeds which is a great fraud to our nutritional needs but also encourages the culture of heavy fertilizer and pesticide use. He stresses on the urgency on the consumers to become aware and start demanding for standardized and organic produce which is not only healthy to human but also keep the natural cycle of cultivation in check which supports the entire biosphere connected to producing and harvesting crops.
