Summer carving workshop

This week there is no Tamil program but there is a sweet and interesting interview: from the Auroville kids who took part in a summer carving workshop. To name a few, there were Aris, Perceval, Eden, Bharathy, Mia plus many more. All the children ranged between 5 and 10 years old. Incidentally, during a heat wave the body has to work extra hard to maintain a normal temperature. Excessive heat can result in serious health threats by pushing the human body beyond its limits, so sit back and listen to the program.

Sunday 24th of February was a happy day for the children and teachers of New Creation B School (NCBS), because they finally managed to finish the kitchen with dining hall. That was possible because of donations from many friends, especially friends from France and friends from Formia in Italy. With a colourful invocation, they inaugurated the kitchen and dining hall, named Priyannam, which means tasty and good food… for the children and teachers to enjoy in it.
