Its been over 2 years I went to Auroville and Pondicherry, the killer 10Meter Tsunami refreshed my memories of that beautiful place... the entire trip was playing like a repeated tape. I haven't been able to sleep properly, the negative thoughts that the village around auroville,periyar mudliar chavady and the entire city may have washed out gives me the chills. I know many people there the fisherman, the local hotel guy, the local painter n tattoo artist, the cyber cafe dude, the local photographer who looks like madhavan of RHTDM, the local bike mechanic, the many children who run behind all vehicles n take lifts from every passing vehicle...
the official Auroville website says that everyone in the area is safe n sound, no ones missing..thanks god!!!
I planning to donate some amount to the cause the PM's relief funds has a dubious track record in distributing it to the needy... I would rather give it to NDTV, Times or the Auroville committee.
You can check out more details at
and the PM's site
While the whole nation and the world seems to have been united in the cause some elements of our society the BJP,Shiv Sena, RSS, VHP's absence n silence has been conspicuous.
Something to ponder about..
