Visitors, Guests and Tourists

The Information Service called for a Presentation / Sharing on the impact and challenges related to guests, visitors and tourists from the point of view of Visitors Centre and Information Service. The Presentation took place on Thursday April 2nd at Visitors Centre. We see the need, and have already started, to work together with other services, groups and interests in Auroville to try and find appropriate ways of dealing with all of these so that the community does not feel swamped and imposed upon in the process. We need to start a reflection on what we want and how.

After having some delicious lemon grass jaggery tea, we strolled into the forest to admire the lovely illustrative artworks on granite and several species of trees. It is easy to get lost in the 60 acre forest and we made a last stop at the farm. Joss is an inspiring and passionate speaker and we were so engrossed in his stories that we lost track of time. The planned discussion on housing issues was postponed to next get together and we departed at 530 PM.

Physically Challenged in Auroville

What will you do if you come across someone in a wheelchair waiting at the bottom of the stairs? Would you offer them your help, would you assume that they are just time passing or will you stop and think? Would you take in account all that you have witnessed? What does physically challenged mean to you. The AurovilleRadio had been welcomed into the life of such person, physically challenged at birth, Susmita had learned to keep herself lifted, working through difficulties she has faced along the way. She feels the time has come for her to share her empathy for the future development of the Auroville Community.
