Celebrations in Baroda for Auroville's 50th Anniversary

As Auroville has reached 50 years, some parts of the celebrations have reached as far as Baroda in Gujarat. AurovilleRadio reached out to Ms. Mona Pingel, who is present there at the moment. An architect by trade, Ms. Pingel was able to provide us an in-depth view of the festivities, while managing to never waver from the importance of Auroville’s history and the aesthetic appeal of the event itself.

The exhibition, inaugurated today, celebrates a landmark moment in Auroville’s history, as the township has thrived over the last 50 years. Worshops and events abound, Auroville’s celebrations have made their way far and wide. The township shows no signs of slowing down, and will undoubtedly expand in the years to come.
