Thanks giving us Pongal

For the first time, Auroville celebrated the Pongal Thanksgiving Festival traditionally. Pongal was celebrated at Friday in front of the solar kitchen. As it was organized by Tamil people and some Auroville units, the city got an authentic glimpse of Indias most important festival. A Soundcollage with Soundscape, music and interviews.
