Covid Bulletin Sept 2020

Hello friends,

My computer went Kaput for a bit this afternoon.  And I had to leave it for a backup on our servers at the Lab, so I could not bring it home to work on the report. Doing this on the iPhone!

In brief, the carpenter has been intermittently in and out as he is working on his own house at the moment.  But Tapas got him to make beautiful cupboards.  We lack storage space so this fulfils an important need. We’ve also just set up the Tomatis waiting room. S, a friend and volunteer (and donor!) did a fab job of arranging the books!  Pics to follow!

The most important thing is that, thanks to those of you who replied to our last mail, and gave permission, we could use the building monies to help pay the salaries of the staff and workers for September.  With Covid, we are open in a small way and the income wasn’t enough.  So a very big thank you to all of you. You saved the project!

We wrote to the Covid Task Force of Auroville saying we would open with several precautions in place, to avoid ruin and closure.  They gave permission and added some more precautions, which were useful suggestions. So we are open.

I am not sure if I have reported about my accident.  Or my operation.  I have had health issues since early June.  Still not fully ok, still limping, but able to walk again and slowly regaining strength and energy again!

Meanwhile, we were able to give the parking and workshop proper roofs to protect from the rain. 

A lot of work is happening on documenting the building and its special features.  Will share more about that soon. 

Warm regards to all and a HUGE Thank you for ensuring the young team and the workers got their salaries this past month.  We are all really grateful to you.

Best,
Mita
