Brilliant Skeptic

James Baldwin the Brilliant Skeptic

James Baldwin, arguably America’s greatest black writer, was a popular Pentecostal preacher in Harlem at age 14 — but at 17 he renounced religion as a sham.

Baldwin’s novels and plays fictionalize fundamental personal questions and dilemmas amid complex social and psychological pressures thwarting the equitable integration not only of African Americans, but also of gay and bisexual men, while depicting some internalized obstacles to such individuals’ quests for acceptance.

“Life is tragic simply because the earth turns and the sun inexorably rises and sets, and one day, for each of us, the sun will go down for the last, last time. Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.”

CAT 14 with Russian singing bells

On 21st April, in unity Pavillion last session of CAT14 was held and it was all about creating harmony. Russian Bells were used to demonstrate how harmony can be developed among various individuals and that too with minimal efforts, all you need is balancing between receiving and giving. Vera with her Russian bells showed us how with just a bit of practice the sound vibrations can be harmonised.
The 2 hour of ringing bells session was so soothing and relaxing, people meditated with the sounds. They shared the joy of sound and silence and to tune with others’ vibrations.
With the music, CAT 14 ended leaving everyone present there totally spaced out, still feeling the vibrations passing through them.

Warning! Do Not Listen!!

Set in the imaginary City of Neotopia, the play tells a story of a government frustrated by their city’s lack of growth. In an attempt to identify the main obstacles to the city’s progress, a group of politicians invite in a team of foreign consultants to identify the problem.

After an exhaustive study, the consultants conclude that the main obstacle to the city’s growth is the citizens, recommending the introduction of a new kind of citizen – Citizen One. Free from the inconvenience of emotion and opinion, Citizen One promises to get things moving again, but things do not go as planned.

Frederick-Early days in Auroville

'Accessible Puducherry'- Workshop

Satya Special School organized a Workshop on “ACCESSIBLE PUDUCHERRY – A STEP TOWARDS AN INCLUSION” on 21st October 2016 at Convention cum Cultural Center, Pondicherry University (A Central Univeristy). Department of Social Work has taken a profound initiative by hosting the event.

India has an estimated 70 million disabled people. Most of them remain confined to their homes due to complete lack of accessible infrastructure. Any attempt to travel, enter buildings, parks, shops etc can be impossible, unsafe or humiliating. They, therefore remain unseen, unheard, unaccounted and are rightly called – an invisible minority.
Accessibility has been one of the most neglected issues in the disability sector in India and is probably one of the crucial factors that can free up the potential and availability of opportunities for disabled people.

The Disability Act (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) was passed by the Indian Parliament in 1995. The Act mandates non-discrimination in transportation and the built environment. However, there has not been much progress so far on these aspects, in India.

Access and Accessible refer to the freedom of choice to enter approach, communicate or make use of a situation or environment without assistance and undue difficulties.
Keeping the above, the following objectives were focused at the workshop:

1. Create awareness on accessibility among various stake-holders
2. Current status on accessibility in Puducherry
3. Road map towards an inclusive Puducherry

And the distinguished Speakers for Accessibility workshop are:

Dr. Chdambaram for the topic ‘Accessibility in Educational institutions – Pondicherry University’ ; Mr. Alkahj for ‘African Perspective on Accessibility – CIAI Pondicherry’ ; Mr. Sudhakar for ‘Accessibility Aids and its Importance – Mobility India’; Dr. Srinivas Murthy for ‘Accessibility for persons with mental disability’ ; Ms. Susmita for Accessible Auroville and Dr. Gulam for ‘Accessibility in Developed countries’ – Pondicherry university

General Meeting On Appeal Process

A General Meeting was organized by the Auroville Council and facilitated by Elisa and Niva, representing the appeal process sub-group.

The residents of Auroville were invited to be part of this meeting to clear any doubts, to put forth their suggestions and views and ultimately reach a stage were a clear decision on the mandate of the appeal process is possible to be agreed upon.

The appeal process comes out in form of a relief for those Aurovillians, who had difference in opinion towards some of the decisions passed by the main working groups for the first year experiencing the process. In the past, Aurovillians had no option but to rely and keep total faith on the good will of the working groups. The basic grievance often experienced is in a situation, where he feels maybe if more vital data or crucial experiences were shared with that particular working group, maybe the decision could have been made under different light. To tackle these arbitrary situation correctly and consciously, the Auroville Council has created the appeal process. The decisions appealed against, will be subject to case by case review with an intention to uphold the ideals of Auroville at all time and support improving the decision making process of the working groups. The final ratification decision of the appeal process will be completed via the RAS . For any further information, the Auroville Council may be contacted.
