Calypso in Early Years

Today’s musical edition features tracks from Cyril Diaz, The Mighty Sparrow, Lord Invader & His Calypso Rhythm Boys, Mighty Dougla, Round Table Knights Vs Bauchamp and more …. Carlos Malcom , the father of reggae, and more. Calypso is a style of Afro-Caribbean music that originated in Trinidad and Tobago during the early to mid 20th century. Its rhythms can be traced back to West African Kaiso and the arrival of French planters and their slaves from the French Antilles in the 1600s.
The music, which drew upon African and French influences, became the voice of the people, and was characterized by highly rhythmic and harmonic vocals, which was most often sung in a French creole and led by a griot.

Why AV, IZ? War and Peace

As part of the regular discussions at CHIRU at Auroville Town Hall, Giacomo  has taken a lead in organizing a talk on ‘war and peace‘. This concept has to be much discussed and addressed in the present global era. Leo Tolstoy has written a piece on ‘war and peace’ which is very relevant in the present situation and people should learn living in peace than in war.

Giacomo  has stated that ‘peace means unity and there can be no peace without partnership and harmony.

Andrea has discussed on various wars that took place in history mainly during the 14th to 19th century. He said that Wars have been a part of human life since history and the usage of atomic bombs during the second world war have shaped the world into a nuclear driven nation-states and threaten a happy society.

Ego, Arrogance, Supremacy and Conflict between two main super powers have disturbed the innocent societies of the world. The speakers at the discussion have also discussed on the number of atomic bombs exploded during 1945-1998, it was 2053 and USA tops the list with a nuclear explosion of 1032 times. The main reason for these explosions was not to wage a real war but to create ‘deterrence’ and showcase the strength of their military to their opponents and the weaker nations.

Finally, Aryamani concluded the discussion by saying that Auroville and the International Zone of the Auroville can take a pioneer role in promoting the Unity and Peace among individuals and nations.

“We don’t realize wars when we live in peace”
