Highest Health Through Nutrician

On the 4th of December 2017 in the reading room, at Savitri Bhavan, Dr Nandita Shah shared some of her deep knowledge on the subject of diet and nutrition and the link to many of the diseases such as cancer and diabetes which have severely increased in the last 50 years. She then gives many simple and logical explanations and reasons why we should change the food we eat to be simply more in tune with our instinctual and natural diet, in the same way that all animals instinctively know their natural food, to help alleviate some of these deadly diseases.
Let us all revert back to an organic plant based diet, let Auroville be a place and example to the world for the health and spiritual benefits of this simple shift.

Dr Nandita Shah has just had her new book “Reversing Diabetes in 21 Days” launched in India and published by Penguin Books. It’s available on Amazon and will soon be available at the Visitors Centre book shop too.
Her website address is www.sharan-India.org

Women in Reggae

Today’s musical edition is about women in reggae. It is a glimpse into a moment in history, from 70ies and up, in which we celebrated the outstanding female voices of reggae music. Jamaica is, and probably will always be, a patriarchal society, but at this point in time the rise of women within the genre had become a notable, positive development.
Probably the best-known among Jamaica’s female singers is the trio called the I Three, who sang harmony vocals for Bob Marley and the Wailers from 1974 until Marley’s death in 1981. Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt and Rita Marley all had successful professional solo careers before joining up with the Wailers.
Apart from those three well known women , we feature many more from Susan Carol, Annette Brissett, Hortense Ellis…., and many more.

I-Threes – Many Are Called
Althea and Donna – Uptown Top Ranking
Melody Beecher – Diamonds & Thrills
