Open House Sunship

On Saturday, September 30th we were invited for an open house in Sunship. Sunship started as a next step of the Citadines experiment which pioneered an urban collective housing project with a difference.
Originally the aspiration was to do the entire building with contributions from well-wishers . Due to practical reasons, out of the 39 apartments, 20 are to give on a pro bono basis and balance the rest with financial contribution. Sunship is an experiment in a new living, offering compact personal spaces and yet be part of a harmonious collective life. There are also common areas, such as double height terraces, the dining room, laundry and maintenance are taking care for. .. and of course Sunship integrates waste management, waste water treatment, rain water harvesting, solar energy and so on…
In the morning there was a short meditation while we listened to a talk from the mother while playing her organ, followed by a talk of Anu and Louis Cohen. Afterwards we could visit some of the apartments and have a cup of tea. In the afternoon there was an exctract from the show BHU/EARTH directed by Philippe and Thierry.

He has over 40 years of experience in working with the grassroot governance institutions. He delivers a powerful presentation, educating the locals upon the up coming panchayat elections. Mr. Laksminarayanan emphasis on the fact that every voting member is a part of ‘graham sabha ‘ and in turn has judiciary powers of the elected panchayat official, if required so.

He emphasis on the role of the Graham Sabha and highlights to the fact, every voting member is automatically a member of the graham sabha and has judiciary powers over the elected members and can bring them to accountability if required. Mr. Laksminarayanan dwells upon these serious issues with a rather jolly mood and reminds the people that, gone are the days when elected members of panchayat can favoritism of any kind and the elected members must work diligently to make sure all the basic needs of villagers are met. He is responsible in his professional life, to have lead and caused up to 31 panchayat elected official, to be disqualified and resign.
