Speaking in Tongues

Anu in " Mantra "After coming to Auroville in 1981, I worked at the Matrimandir, up on the scaffoldings for nearly five years and this was my first and most marvelous school of dance/body training.

Then, I worked at Pour Tous for another two years, keeping track of the flow of Auroville's home-grown fruit and veggies, the market, the baskets and the stock; the sound of vandis and the gas bottles; the food processing, the wheat ration and the stall; and the circulations of people all day, going in and out, doing things, bringing things, asking questions, complaining or laughing, in every angle of light and shadow - all this taught me the principles of choreography.

One year in Auroville's Working Committee, writing official reports and letters, triggered off poetry and stories as a safety valve.

What resulted was this:
