    Travel Journal from India Auroville, India | Sun May 01, 2011

    the experiences that i create in my head to be something that they are not, never end up the way I imagine them to be. Those experiences that I arrive at with arms wide open always surpass anything i can imagine. The beauty is in the continual experience of something new, so how could I formulate the experience in my mind from only old memories. By not comparing my future …

    As part of my Food Group capstone project, we visited Pebble Garden, an organic seedbank garden.  Bernard and Deepika founded this garden in 1994. When they began, it was entirely pebbles and laterite soil, hence its name. Using the only available biomass on site- the acacia trees –they created a fertile garden.  They collected the fallen acacia leaves and broke them into small pieces by hand. Then they layered this …

Yermolai (definitely spelled wrong), the gardener here at College Guest House, told me he had to take off work to help redo his home's keet roof after a night of really strong rains. My roof hasn't leaked …

  • Parvathy Baul

    Travel Journal from Afghanistan Afghanistan | Mon May 02, 2011

    Yesterday night, I went to a beautiful concert by Sufi musician Latif Bolat and Baul singer Parvathy Baul. One of the best things about Auroville is its support for cultural events showcasing both local Tamil talent and artists from around the world. I had never even heard of Baul before, except as a side note in the Rough Guide to Indian Music. The Aurovillian running the show provided a wonderful …
