History and today’s organisation.

Mohanam was officially incepted in 2001 under Village Action Trust.

Mohanam is a bridge between Auroville and its surrounding villages; it strives to keep alive the local rural tamil cultural heritage. Mohanam wants to be a youthful, vibrant community centre that helps to revitalize the rich village traditions of Tamil Nadu. We believe that in the rush towards modernization it is important to recognize and appreciate our past and its potential to function as a foundation for building a brighter future for all, one where the divine force within each one of us may unfold.

The name Mohanam comes from one of the most harmonious ragas of Classical Indian Music, a raga being a musical melody material aimed at creating a certain mood and state of mind. The Mohanam raga evokes the power of fulfillment of our aspiration for beauty and harmony.
