Developed by the 1st-gen pioneers from a barren desert to a lush green forest city over the span of 50 years through a trial and error approach speaks something very symbolic of the Auroville spirit. That it never shies away from taking up the impossible. While we do so, nature is always there protecting us, gently guiding us, taking care of our land, ecology, health, and play. It is a blessing to live and learn in the midst of nature.
