Sanghamitra Das in Auroville

Sanghamitra Das rendered us a fascinating presentation on the highly traditional Baul singing and dancing tradition in Kala Kendra.
Bauls are a religious and cultural group of India, best known for their songs and poems to the god who dwells within. The term “Baul” is usually understood to mean “madman” or religious ecstatic, and Bauls often describe themselves as crazy for God.

The Baul tradition dates back to the early 8th C AD and has grown weaving together threads from Sahajiya Buddhism, Turkish Sufism and Bengali Hinduism. This powerful musical form has been recognised as a “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity” by UNESCO.

She supported herself on Ektara and Guggi drum and Suresh on cajon and Dhani on guitar took care of some added percussion and strings.

One of the chief functions of the physical mind is to doubt. If you listen to it, it will always find thousand reasons for doubting. But you must know that the physical mind is working in ignorance and full of falsehoods.

50th – Who, What, Where, When

By 50th Auroville Anniversary Core Team (Fabienne, Chali, David, Fred, along with Milan, Pala, Claudine) the community was invited to a workshop about preparations for Auroville’s 50th anniversary…
The workshop (interactive session) was aiming to inform the community on where we are today and to explore the next steps … or what we can do together.
Team leaded us through where we are at this moment with the preparations according to various possibilities – depending to either grant from Governemnt of India will be given or not.
50 years of existence of intentional community is a remarkable mark. Some members would prefer to celebrate it quietly, yet is pretty obvious that it will have quite an impact on life of the community, and surely cannot be ignored.
In second part of the event all were invited to explored possibilities how , and where one could actively participate.
Two years ago WC offered a theme for anniversary – Centering within , and during intensive participatory planning exercises theme evolved in vision:
to re-inspire our individual, collective aspiration in order to achieving of Auroville Charter and A Dream.

RIP by Savita Rani

Yesterday’s monologue RIP or Rest In Peace inquiring restlessness in pieces by Savtia Rani, and Satsang Teatro in CRIPA was mature performance on the topic of feminism or life of a women in India.
Savita depicts a wife, who’s sole purpose is to be a devoted wife, and a mother, who’s duty is to be beautiful, fragile … feminine. Yet, the wife decides that she wants, and needs to be more that that, and finds her fulfilment on the day when her husband takes a decision to travel. Her plan succeeds, but along bring disappointments. Although the wife is happy to travel, and learn more about life, she get across as well the ugly tricks of political games of her husband.
