Poppo on Archeology

Poppo Pingel is a celebrated architect, who came to Auroville in 1968 for the inauguration as the German delegate. In this interview, Pingel talks about his passion for archeology that stayed with him throughout his life, but found an outlet in Auroville. He describes his various findings from his very first excavation attempt to his recent discoveries as well as the challenges that accompanied them. Additionally, he discusses the archeological park he established (which is situated on Crown Road between Solar Kitchen and Visitors Centre) and explains why he chose to create a ‘park’ instead of a conventional historical site.

Bamboo Open House

Last Saturday’s Open House at Auroville Bamboo Research Centre thre was a chance to see on display almost everything about bamboo. With its versatile qualities, practical and artistic aspects, bamboo does inspire almost anybody who makes contact with it. In comparison with last year the progress at Bamboo Research Centre is clearly visible. The whole area is vibrant with new and rejuvenating energies, and smiling faces are all around. We talked shortly with Balu and Walter about the World Bamboo Day celebrations and about the Centre.

Spirit in Sound

Svaram started as a social development project with local unemployed youngsters. But in over more than a decade, it has developed into a real research enterprise in sound. It is a work in matter with sounds, which helps to symbolically manifest and reflect, through the craft-work, the deep underlying vision in Auroville. Svaram researches and produces a wide variety of world-music instruments’ from original and primal sound- makers to sophisticated string resonators, which find application in the emerging field of music education, sound therapy and personal growth. To Aurelio, musical instruments are like archetypal principles and as such limited to what one can do with them, but it does allow him to manifest some of the research in sound in the quest for that “unique sound of Auroville.”

It`s Pongal time!

Pongal is one of the longest festivals of Tamils. It is celebrated from the14th to the 17th of January and it honors a new harvest season. It is considered as a good omen and it is an occasion to rejoice with friends, family and neighbors. In Hindu Culture, the Tamil Month of Thai brings good fortune to everyone, or as the Tamils say: “Thai piranthaal Vazhi Pirakkum” which means “the beginning of Thai provides ways for new opportunities”. I guess we all need new, enriching and fertile opportunities, so happy Pongal to each of you.

Le chant des possibles

We walked along together for a while. We went to some places through Tamil Nadu meeting Indian people and culture. We asked them to sing a little song just like that. Discover India through their voices: at a local market, then harvesting in a rice field, or at Pour Tous Auroville supermarket, inside a church for Easter and finally walking among mountains in Kodaikanal.

Who is Ganesh?

Without doubt Ganesh is one of the most popular deities in India, and all over the world. Either for his kindness and qualities of a god who’s beneficiary in many cases or because of his interesting and cuddly figure of full belly being with elephant head and four arms… however, Lord Shree Ganesh is a god of knowledge and the remover of obstacles. He is worshiped or at least remembered in the beginning of any auspicious performance for blessings and auspiciousness. He has four hands, elephant’s head and a big belly. His vehicle is a tiny mouse. A unique combination of his elephant like head and a quick moving tiny mouse vehicle represents tremendous wisdom, intelligence and presence of mind.
