Murugan Adhimoolam

This is to inform the community of the sudden demise this morning of our good friend and brother Murugan Adhimoolam at the age of 43.

Hailing from Kottakarai, Murugan joined Auroville in 2007 and has been working with Michael in Dana’s Flame Pottery. He lived in Courage with his wife Meena (who does the catering for Transition School) and their two children Adhavan, at college in Chennai, and Arthi studying in Pondy.

Apart from his work at the pottery, Aurovilians may have experienced Murugan’s calm and friendly presence at various occasions, such as at Matrimandir duty, the organisation of the Marathons, Sangamam festivities and other such events. He also helped Celestine with her art work on Auroville’s roads.

Murugan’s remains are taken to Farewell where friends can visit and pay homage tomorrow, Sunday, from 8am – 2pm. The burial will take place tomorrow at Adventure’s burial grounds on Sunday, 12 August, at 4pm.

Thank you, Murugan, for having been with us, and our heartfelt strength for Meena, Adhavan and Arthi.
