Mark Tully has failed in his journalistic duty to bring the probelms associated with Auroville to light (Bt-central-plus) England, London, United Kingdom, 8th February 2009 11:47:27 PM wright%22 bbc&start=20&sa=N Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "BBC broadcast a lie on Auroville to millions of pe...":

The whole world knows that the Auroville project is based on a spurious and dangerous ideology and the more journalists who uncover its corrupt and corrupting core the better. It is simply a magnet for rich, frustrated westerners to live out their simple-minded utopian fantasies in a poor region of India well away from the clutches of a properly organised criminal justice system.

The project brings no discernible benefit to the local population and indeed it rigorously enforces its own apartheid code - it is a statement of fact that there are beaches in the vicinity set aside for the sole use of aurovillains which is in effect an old-fashioned colour bar. The only reason previous child abuse problems have failed to make headlines is because the organisation is so rich, powerful and well-connected that it has been able to keep such problems well away from the media and public consumption.

There is also a vicious irony in this attack on this BBC journalist's professionalism and integrity given that I believe that Mark Tully is a key member of the Auroville board yet has failed in his journalistic duty to bring the many, manifest and often criminal probelms associated with this awful place to light.
