Idea #71 - Auroville, Paradise on Earth
Have you ever wondered what it feels like to live in a little town with complete harmony, no economic strain, zero crime rate, happy cats and happier people? Does it seem like a land far away, beyond your grasp? You would be wrong to think that, since the Utopia of your dreams does, in fact, exist!
Today we watched a vlog on Auroville, an experimental society in Pondicherry that flourishes on nothing but kindness and humanity. With its primary elements being harmony and sustainability, Auroville strives to be the ideal human society.
With a population of a mere 3000, Auroville is an almost cashless society, where the people cultivate their own crops and educate themselves in their own creative ways. Here, everyone, from the plumbers to the professional artists are paid the same salary to sustain themselves throughout the month.
Auroville does not believe in God, but in peace within, housing the kindest and the most genius of creative minds who make the society heaven on Earth. We believe it is an ultimate getaway for people living their restless metropolitan city lives!
