Dear Lucille, I have created a Foundation and named it Heart and Sun Foundation. One of the goals of the Foundation is to make people more aware of Auroville and to support the town. I have been in Auroville 7 times. I came upon your beautiful photo today and I would like to ask you for permission to publish it on the site of the Foundation - namely, here: http://heartandsun.org/auroville/ I am looking forward for your reply. Thanks!
