Jules Arindam

On Tuesday 23 May, at 7.32 in the morning, Jules Arindam passed away at the age of 50 in Jipmer where he had been taken some days earlier. Some of the first generation Aurovilians may remember him: Jules was born in Pondicherry in 1972 to Dawn (daughter of Dietra) and AuroArindam, who was one of the initiative takers of Auroville International. Jules was named by the Mother.

He returned to be in his home Auroville in 2019, and was active as a musician who taught music and worked at Unity Pavilion and everywhere else, helping out with the sound equipment. Jules was dedicated and professional in his work and carried on his duties cheerfully despite the health challenges he faced due to cancer. Aurovilians and his friends have been closely following his last days, with thankfulness for his kind being and prayers in their hearts.

Our heartfelt condolences to Dawn, his mother, his family and his many friends. Jules will be dearly missed by all.
