With this issue we celebrate 30 years of
publication. To celebrate we have made it a double issue.
It seems a long, long time since a few of
us decided, over multiple cups of coffee, to launch a new Auroville publication
in 1988. In those days, the only news friends and Auroville centres would
receive about what was happening in the community came from the irregularly
appearing Auroville Review.
“I give you six months,” was the cheerful
prediction of one Aurovilian. And, indeed, we had no idea when we set sail
where our frail craft was heading.
But somehow, due to an unlikely combination
of optimism, doggedness, luck and, above all, the Grace, we have managed to
stay afloat, and even improve the vessel.
Thank you, everybody, for your support.
