Yes, in Tamil Nadu, we like bright colours! -Muthulingam
Today we began the second week of the workshop by splitting up into two groups, one who made a visit to the Matrimandir, and the other who checked on the situation at the workshop.
Once we were all gathered at the workshop we began discussing colours for the parts of the toilet. Looking at the palette that was prepared in advanced, we all decided on pink. Later, Muthulingam said, “Yes, in Tamil Nadu, we like bright colours!”. He was quite excited when he mentioned, “Pink is a good idea”. And so we confirmed that the combination pink, green and white would be used for most parts.
After lunch, we gathered at the Wall House for a presentation by Anupama on ferrocement. It was interesting to analyse where the technology began and how it was taken forward in Auroville. Since it was her last day, we asked her some final questions and agreed to meet again in Madrid for the final sessions of reflection on the whole workshop.
