Auroville (City of Dawn) is an experimental township in Viluppuram district in the state of Tamil Nadu, India, near Puducherry in South India. It was founded in 1968 by Mirra Alfassa (also known as "The Mother") and designed by architect Roger Anger. As stated in Alfassa's first public message about the township, "Auroville is meant 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 realize human unity."

Inspired by a love of sharing, Guerilla Translation facilitates access to valuable ideas in uncertain times.
Guerrilla Translation is a collaborative hub for authors and translators to network and share stimulating ideas internationally. Our aim is to model a cooperative form of global idea-sharing, by enabling a platform and method for opening dialogues.
Although GT offers the same range of services as a traditional translation agency, it is anything but. Material is chosen for translation according to its social and environmental value, not its profit potential.
