Auroville – A village for souls

Shed off that pride of being an Indian, Russian, a Punekar, or a proud to be Mumbaikar! We react very slowly as humans, we react as a person. Certainly and obviously so. I stepped in Auroville boundary, and the space changed me. I was more quiet, more receptive, thoughtful. The best part was, I was alone. So I discussed the charm of the place, love for details, the peace, the green patches with myself. As I walked towards MatriMandir, me and mind – had a wonderful conversation.

Was eager to see the globelike structure – Maatrimandir.

I wont talk about how Matrimandir was built, what is the philosophy behind it etc etc. The place i is sufficiently intoxicating. Without keeping a tab on time, i spent hrs sitting admiring the architecture, clicking pictures and doing nothing. Silence, is what I loved.

Would want to go back to Auroville, stay there, interact with people from various countries, share ideas and be a part of a universal city in the making in south-India.

HUGE HUGE Banyan tree, just before entering road towards matrimandir. Encompasses shadow of love for humanity. Spent few hrs sitting on the benches you see in the image
