Aurora's Eye

For Serena to be in Auroville it is a privilege. She “stumble” upon it on her journey all over the planet looking for intentional communities, searching for alternative, more truer lifestyle. And every community she has stopped, she would made a video which was donated to the members of it.
And how she ended here, in Auroville? As Serena laugh it off – the decision was made for her, she just went with the flow…. and The Mother Dream was also hers.
And now she make herself rather busy capturing “Glimpses of Auroville”, where she is documenting, creating a bridge, creating highlights as we are quite fast approaching 50th anniversary. (and by the way, the OutreachMedia is in need of video makers, photographers, writers for the occasion).

Amongst so many other things, Serena recently initiate RAK – Random Act of Kindness, whereby group of people visit services and units and spread hugs, joy, smiles…..

Djanfa Magni – African Scream

Like most modern music in French-speaking West African countries, the music of Benin and Togo was influenced by a few main musical currents: Cuban, Congolese and local traditional music, as well as Chanson Francaise. Additionally, the geographical location of Benin and Togo – sandwiched between Ghana and Nigeria – exposed Beninese and Togolese musicians to Highlife music.
The cultural and spiritual riches of traditional Beninese music had an immense impact on the sound of Benin’s modern music. Benin is the birth place of Vodun (or, as it is known in the West, Voodoo), and some of the rhythms used during traditional rituals – Sakpata, Sato, Agbadja, Tchenkoumé and many others – were fused to Soul and Latin music as early as the mid-1960s and later to Funk.
In the late 60s and early 70s rock and soul music started creeping into the region. In particular, the music of James Brown and Johnny Hallyday became immensely popular with university students. It was then that the music scene in Benin really started to take off.

AV Safety and Security

Yesterday’s Information Meeting of Auroville Safety & Security Team at SAWCHU, Bharat Nivas, Pavilion of India was not well attended from the side of community.
Current AV Safety&Security Team , consisting of Samuel, Indra, Srijita, Mattheiu, Peter, Carlos, and the guards, which took its place about year and a half ago, shared intensively with us what are they going through, changes they have implemented in their work, obstacles, scope of work, and future plans. In all they also emphasized the importance of prevention rather than intervention. In this aspect collaboration with the community is of utmost importance. They would like to have wider interaction with the members of the community from sharing of information to the appropriate attitude of each of the member of the community. Just for an example – in past year 90% of thefts occurred due to the fact that people leaved the doors unlocked!

Yesterday’s presentation of Lucas from EcoPro was trying to show what are the downfall of classical sanitation versus ecological sanitation.
Presentation was illustrated with power point slides with many examples of life cycle, and sanitation, either the one that is most commonly used, and the ecological, and field examples. Lucas , for the start, elaborated on the cycle of nutrient, on entrophication of water bodies and nutrient – poor wastelands, reflection current sanitation systems, on the purity – pollution gradient in a caste-based society.
