Kailash Jhavery passed away at the age of 94.
Kailash was an Ashramite whom the Mother had appointed in the early seventies as secretary of the Sri Aurobindo Society’s UNESCO section in which capacity she wrote a booklet on Cultural Pavilions for the same. It became an important historical document as part of her task was to promote the ideas of Auroville’s International Zone.
She also wrote ‘Auroville and Education’ and other papers, and was quite instrumental for Auroville in the early years. Many long-term residents know her, and Richard Pearson, with whom she often came to the site.
