It's my pleasure to introduce myself. I am Vishva from Sanjeevi Nagar, Pondicherry. I am studying Catering and Hotel Management. My first life journey started with the Mohanam family as a student of 1st batch of kindergarten in the year 2004. I am one of the youth members in the Mohanam Youth Space for the past 3 years. There is no job related to my studies in the COVID-19 period so I'm wasting the time daily and roaming here and there. This COVID-19 period gives such opportunities to volunteer at the Mohanam and Bamboo Centre. Here I am exploring and learning about bamboo food like bamboo biscuits, bamboo Kambuja, bamboo idly and dosa mix, bamboo tea and also I am learning bamboo music, and cultural activities. I also learn many soft skills like time management, communicative skills, work ethic, etc. I have also gained good habits, experiences, and have met great people during this time. I have a strong interest in learning everything inside Auroville. I believe this may be my life's turning point, I would like to be a part of Auroville in the future and I'm ready to do everything in Auroville. Thank you for giving me such a wonderful opportunity in this COVID-19 period. I am glad I never neglected an opportunity that was given to me by Mohanam. I believe that you will keep supporting and giving hope to me for my future.
Hello, my name is Gowtham. I'm doing a BA in Literature, 2nd year in pondy. I have been involved with Mohanam as the youth of Mohanam's Youth Space for the last two years. Mohanam has trained me in lots of knowledge and ideas as well as immense exposure in different fields. I believe this place Is an excellent place for self-empowerment and making our own lives successful. Because of COVID-19, I don't know what I'm doing in this lockdown period. Mohanam has given time to have the joy of doing the drumming circle practice in the evening. That time I had an opportunity to do the volunteer here. As work of administration work in Mohanam and bamboo centre office myself to have a lot more time as my college shut down and let me delve deeper into my volunteering. As I joined the Mohanam group as an official volunteer I did many more new things and learned so much more. I love living and volunteering in Auroville and it has made me a better person in so many ways, I am very grateful to be where I am today. My language has become so much better since I came here as well as my work. If I'm at the home, just I'm hanging with mobile phones, TV and some other stupid things. When I came here I feel better. And also I met many peoples and many places. ethic, I am now ready to take on anything new with the peace of mind I have acquired. Now I learned many things like how to work in the office how to behave how to communicate with people. I would like to learn more from here about how people creative working aspire. Love and gratitude to all, thank you.
