Indian Holidays

Since this week’s posts seem to be themed around celebrating the holidays abroad, I wanted to pass along this video and link by several former classmates of mine who are currently in Auroville, India for a month. Several years ago the American University of Paris started a sustainable development practicum there where students work directly with NGOs in the area. It’s always interesting to see the projects that evolve in such a short time, and I’m still envious that I never had a chance to participate myself. Vicariously works too though.

UPDATE: The day I posted this piece, I later found out a major cyclone hit the area. Thankfully, everyone in the program is ok.
