Festival for the Guardian Deity

In the Auroville bioregion are many temples associated with the local deities which the villagers propitiate for sound living and greater harmony. One such deity is the Ayyanaar, who is the Guardian of the space, known for keeping negative influences at bay. One can identify this deity by the large red warrior sitting with his two consorts, prominently displayed on the roadside.
The custom of the villagers is to conduct festivals at regular intervals to keep the energy of the deity vibrant and alive. One such festival is the celebration of the ‘Marriage day’ of Ayyanaar with his consorts. This festival has been celebrated recently on April 24th. It is surprising to see that this day coincides with that of the Mother’s Final Arrival day in Pondicherry, April the 24th. Coincidence or synchronicity!?! Just a play of the Divine, maybe!
So on this occasion, the village held an all-night play depicting the story of Ayyanaar in the local folk tradition. Here is the audio of some interesting parts from the 5 hour play.

Mr. Laksminarayanan from SLI

Mr. Laksminarayanan, former AD panchayat, Govt. of Tamil Nadu, & Currently liaison officer, SLI ( Sustainable Livelihood Institute ).
He has over 40 years of experience in working with the grassroot governance institutions. He delivers a powerful presentation, educating the locals upon the up coming panchayat elections. Mr. Laksminarayanan emphasis on the fact that every voting member is a part of ‘graham sabha ‘ and in turn has judiciary powers of the elected panchayat official, if required so. He educates, that Tamil Nadu has had a history of local panchayat governance right from 700 A.D. , and points out to various policies for qualification and disqualification of elected members which have been made clear, even in that era. He emphasis on the role of the Graham Sabha and highlights to the fact, every voting member is automatically a member of the graham sabha and has judiciary powers over the elected members and can bring them to accountability if required. Mr. Laksminarayanan dwells upon these serious issues with a rather jolly mood and reminds the people that, gone are the days when elected members of panchayat can favoritism of any kind and the elected members must work diligently to make sure all the basic needs of villagers are met. He is responsible in his professional life, to have lead and caused up to 31 panchayat elected official, to be disqualified and resign.
