  He is my classmate, friend, team mate and fellow Aurovilian.

  He decided to stay with us for a few days which turned out to 2 weeks.  He had high blood pressure and felt he need to take a break from his regular life which i will not mention.
  Doing the accounts for several units in Auroville is very hectic and stressing to keep everyone on track especially at the end of the year/when taxes have to be submitted; suddenly know one has money.
  We had mega plans to change our diet.  From raw food, liquid diets, no sugar; am not sure of that one, etc. i continued my regular diet with more sprouts.  Anyway, meat appears rarely on the plate.

  Smoking and drinking out of the question.  With all these new habits and several vices on a holiday; Palani got back in shape in no time.
  Of course the forest environment is a good platform.  And working on the land uses more muscles then when we on a desk :)
  Good to have him around, it had been ages since we connected.
  He told us to have a cow is like giving life to the place!  beautiful. So a cow we are after; oh wow, gonna have to wake up early to milk!


  1. yeah true...take Palani's words and you 'll see for yourself how a cow would change a 'sanyasi' into 'samsari'...

  2. (bow) good advice - fun! thanks venkat.
