An interview with Devanesan

Devanesan is an editor for the Malaysian Newspaper The Sun. He has visited Auroville a number of times over the years, both during his time working for an NGO in India, and as an interested guest some years later. He is currently volunteering at Buddha Garden, an organic farm in the Auroville Green Belt. He spoke with AurovilleRadio discussing his work with various NGO’s, censorship in Malaysian media, the complexities of community based living in urban environments, and the importance of the philosophy of interconnectedness which he says offers lessons for urban and rural sustainability, in terms of community development, as well as attitudes towards the land and other people.
