A New Step For Auroville

Patrizia Saccá is a paralympic table tennis champion who overcame her disabilities by becoming a champion. She describes her visit to Auroville in Italian translated to English by her friend, Susmita. She is in awe of the Matrimandir and recalls her visit to the inner chamber with the help of Susmita, who is a pioneer of the Accessible Auroville project. She describes in vivid detail how the peaceful atmosphere made her feel, and the reason that she keeps going back to relive the experience. The interview is conducted outside the Matrimandir, the place that inspires Patrizia.
They also discuss the concept of human unity, which they feel goes beyond goes caste and color to include people with disabilities. Susmita and she remind us that we are, above all, human beings and we deserve to feel equally loved and respected. They shed light upon the importance of the issue of accessibility and are confident that a new step for the City That The Earth Needs is making Auroville fully accessible at all fronts. Patrizia also shares with us the secret behind her success and positivity in life.

Gli ascoltatori Italiani possono ascoltare l’intervista con Patrizia Saccá tradotta da Susmita in Ingese. Patrizia Saccá e’ un’atleta paraolimpica che sta visitando Auroville.

Vox pop on Cinema

At Cinema Paradiso, we have a number of people coming to watch the movies where they spend their evenings delightfully. In this conversation with few of the participants, we get to know more about their liking to the cinema and in the end, we ask with a pinch of humor whether it would be good to bring snacks to the cinema, surprisingly most of us would want this place to be clean and kept just as the way it is for the cinema lovers.

Jazz – A tribute to Pink Floyd

Tuesday night with excitement of completely  full Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas for the concert tribute to Pink Floyd by Rita Marcotulli Jazz Ensemble.
Pink Floyd in jazz? Some might have asked but what we heard was an unique fusion of known songs as from the early “Astronomy Domine?” and “Set the controls to the hart of the sun”, to the best known “Money”, “Us and them”, “The wall”, “Crazy diamond”, to the less known “Saint Tropez”, “Cyrrus minor”.
Pink Floysd’s songs interwoven with jazz solos of the members of the band went higher than audience’s expectations; and yet as very natural flow of clear electric pieces fused with jazz.
Presented by the Italian Pavilion.

Raiz – Voice
Rita Marcotulli – Pianoforte and keyboard
Andy Sheppard – Sax
Alessandro Paternesi – Drums
Ares Tavolazzi – Electric Bass
Michele Rabbia – percussion and electronics
Fausto Mesolella – Guitar and effects

A Unifying Vision-Prof. Luisi

The Auroville Campus Initiative -a presentation on; THE SYSTEMS VIEW OF LIFE: A UNIFYING VISION
By Prof. Pier Luigi Luisi Prof. Emeritus of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, Switzerland. Dec 29 2015


The systems thinking emphasizes that the properties of a system composed by several components are due to the interactions of the components. The network of interactions is the major key, we go from the isolated components to their mutual web of links. Systems of this kind are under our common observation, for example complex machines, social structures, cities and the architecture complexes. Interdependence is the major key to understanding reality to enrich and complement with the new concepts of modern epistemology, particularly those coming from complexity theory. Thus, the notion of self-organization, the main aim of the recent book by Capra and Luisi (Cambridge Univ. Press, 2014), are presented in some detail. We are probably at the limit of time for a healthy solution, but solutions are in principle still possible. On these we have to work.

Prof. Luisi, after his graduation at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, Italy, made his academic career at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (ETHZ), Switzerland as chemistry professor. Since 2003, he has been working at the University of Rome3, Italy.

His research focussed in the origin of life, and the synthetic biology of minimal living cells. Author of over 600 reviewed papers, and a dozens of books, which include “The emergence of life”, for Cambridge Univ.Press, 2006, now at the second edition; Recently, the book with Fritjof Capra, “The systems view of life”, for Cambridge univ. Press, 2014. He has been associated from the start (1987) with the Mind and Life Institute, see his 2009 book “Mind and Life”, for Columbia Univ.Press, 2009.

At the ETHZ, he created (1985) the Cortona-week, an interdisciplinary residential week for graduate students, who are asked to work with artists, psychologists, religious leaders, to open up their horizon and foster a new generation of world leaders with a more integrated and balanced view of life. One such Cortona-week was done in India, see
