Pashi Kapur

This is to inform the community that Pashi Kapur passed away in the evening of Friday 20 October at the age of 91, having dedicated his life to his most beloved idea and project of Auroville.

Pashi already lived in Auroville in the early years and was founder director of Auroservice, a resource building project directly sanctioned by the Mother, through which he worked closely with Roger Anger and his team until 1980. While always remaining in close contact in the subsequent years, he actively resumed his activities on site from 1998 onwards and became Aurovilian in 2011. During his later years he was involved in the Prosperity and CIRHU projects.

Pashi’s remains were taken to Farewell and were cremated in the afternoon of Monday October 23rd at the Auroville cremation ground.

His family, friends and well-wishers are in deep appreciation of his exemplary commitment and dedication to Auroville and the Mother's work. We all wish him a peaceful onward journey.
