My good mate, Noël Parent, returned from his seven year stay in Auroville. When a friend returns unannounced to Atlantis, I assume misfortune. In this case, the assumption was not wholly incorrect: he'd attempted entry into Québec, where his Akadian French tipped off the border control agent that he might not ever leave. Whither goes a blue-eyed Brahmin when a dream dies of dysentery in India, then Canada denies him entry twice? Atlantis.
Aerial view of a city in Southern India - plus it look like the death star at a glance :) “Auroville wants to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realise human unity.”
