Pre-mythological allegory of "Uma Haimavati" in Kena Upanishad contains the clue to symbolism of Vedic deities Sri Aurobindo brings to life.
Sri Aurobindo bases his vision on the Vedic dialectic of Evolution of wrestling with the evil & also surpassing the hurdle deployed by gods.
Hindutva, like secularism, is an exercise in dumbing down by way of mythologisation, infantalisation, & relegating future hopes to the past.
National goals and social priorities can't be decoupled from the object of Evolution. The notion of Mother India, therefore, is no fiction.
The journey of Democracy in India must pass out of the Nursery school. Personality cult has ruled for too long; now is the time for ideology
Transition and transformation is not a smooth affair and involves prolonged conflict and friction but adhering to ideology ensures direction
An influential section of Auroville's elite has been complicit in this power game and is happy with the status quo. http://savitriera.blogspot.com.au/2010/11/auroville-must-be-returned-to-its.html …
The state of Auroville itself is highly troubling. A complete negation of the original conception, it is verily a caricature and a betrayal.
Auroville must be returned to its rightful owners. The Mother’s property has to be released from the hands of the unbelievers and atheists.

Sri Aurobindo Ashram responds only to the Courts or the Collector & not the general public. A public institution must practice transparency.
Visitors recall the abode of peace that the Ashram is but are blissfully unaware that it is seating on a volcano of land scams & shady deals
How long the Devotees must wait before their beloved Ashram rescued from the evil occupation by vile usurpers? Why even the Courts so slow?
The luminous legacy of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is definitely not safe in the dubious custody of Manoj Das Gupta & friends of Peter Heehs.
The Mother recognised Sri Aurobindo at once on arrival in Puducherry in 1914. Indians are yet to know his real worth even after a century.
It's ludicrous Manoj Das Gupta claiming Divine Right to rule over Sri Aurobindo Ashram by pathetically sponsoring wellwishers pamphleteering
Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry must stop the system of life-long appointment of Trustees to prevent sycophancy, nepotism, & black-mailing.
Peter Heehs has impersonated variously with fancy designations which the Ashram never conferred upon him. Why silence on this? Conspiracy?
The Ashram will be stirred only when its premises is attacked or property ransacked and not if the reputation of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.
The Ashram maintains that it has got no business with whatever people write about Sri Aurobindo including its inmates. Exemplary neutrality!
@gchikermane You may say goodbye to me but you owe the nation an apology for perpetrating falsehood with regard to Peter Heehs last year.
@SavitriEraParty Clean your lens. Truth will manifest. Goodbye.
No amount of paid-media coverage and planted panegyrical can exonerate Peter Heehs of the indiscretions committed in Lives of Sri Aurobindo.
@SavitriEraParty My going to Sri Aurobindo Ashram, my home, looks political to you! We view the world through the lens of who we are.
@gchikermane That's obvious but you should clarify on your Peter Heehs nexus and the hospitality by the Ashram enjoyed by you so frequently.
Must be some serious groundwork for Peter Heehs' defence when @gchikermane is in Puducherry. Admirable nexus between history and economics.
Off to Pondicherry, our second home!
The world needs Peter Heehs' extraordinary genius as historian and his fans are thirsty for his forthcoming book. Why is he locking himself?
Vigilance needs to be beefed up and resistance augmented so that Sri Aurobindo Ashram is not hijacked by likes of Peter Heehs the CIIS way.
Authentic historical account regarding The Mother & Sri Aurobindo can emerge only when the stranglehold of Peter Heehs over the Ashram ends.
Residence of just 1 person has been troubling a whole community of devotees & admirers of Sri Aurobindo. Ashram should throw Peter Heehs out
Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry has embarked upon a propaganda campaign to acquit itself of the sins committed by Peter Heehs but in vain.
[He whom we saw yesterday is on earth. His presence is enough to prove that a day will come when darkness shall be transformed into light..]
Peter Heehs hit upon the queer formula that whatever others say about Sri Aurobindo is true but what he himself said is suspect as history.

@SavitriEraParty okay sir. ll look into it. Thanks.
@parrygn Depends upon which history book you read or rely upon. I'd prefer Sri Aurobindo's autobiographical notes that tell a different tale
@parrygn We can call him "Sri Aurobindo" - the name he adopted in his later years - whose written works and conversations exceed 40 volumes.
This is the great day when The Mother met to Sri Aurobindo first time. And New Age begins...
March 29, 1914: The Mother came from France and met Sri Aurobindo in Puducherry that turned out a momentous event in the history of humanity
Even the parody celebrates the same distorted account of history. Sri Aurobindo is yet to find his place he deserves. http://www.theunrealtimes.com/2013/03/29/parody-sagarika-ghose-goes-back-in-time-to-live-tweet-about-indias-freedom-struggle-part-ii/ …
Q. for historians: How many had the foresight to support the Cripps, Wavell, and Cabinet Mission proposals so consistently as Sri Aurobindo?
Time to expose attempts to subsume the voice of Sri Aurobindo & his distinct opinions as well as oppositions under the Perennial upholstery.
Sri Aurobindo has been categorical in expressing his differences from the ways of the Congress, from Hindutva & the Leftists. How prophetic!
All confusion in the country can fast evaporate by clinging to a single principle & that is by following The Mother & Sri Aurobindo's words.
While publicly expressing his support for the war against Hitler, Sri Aurobindo offers a nuanced understanding of ethical choice and Dharma.
Antipathy towards English has been responsible for Sri Aurobindo's political and new metaphysical enunciation not reaching the wider public.
Policy issues are surely crucial but underlying civilisational forces too are decisive. In that sense RSS comes across as the most repulsive
Sri Aurobindo was not listened then but nothing prevents the present generation of India from understanding his persistent plea for peace.
Four epochal interventions by Sri Aurobindo - 1940: War Funds, 1942: Cripps Proposal, 1945: Wavell Plan, and 1946: Cabinet Mission Proposals.
