@tapansur @pondytweets Wealth creation is not a crime but lack of transparency & accountability is. More deplorable is shameless sycophancy.

Affinity between Tamil & Sanskrit terms stirred Sri Aurobindo's imagination to unravel the secret of the Veda leading to fusing East & West.
Recovering the past was a passion and a fashion when Sri Aurobindo began formulating his philosophy in 1914 by fixing his eyes on the future
In The Life Divine Sri Aurobindo responds to Hegel, Schopenhauer, Feuerbach, Marx, Nietzsche, Bergson, Spencer, Darwin, Freud, James & Royce
March of technology has made it faster for us to realise but Sri Aurobindo was well aware of the present ideological vacuum 100 years back.

Political commentary (as in discussions about parties and elections) is closer to gossip than it is to analysis.
In India, people more time haggling over vegetable or fruit prices than deciding over their political leadership.
Characterizing Sri Aurobindo's work as too heavy is not uncommon but dismissing his multifaceted theorising & complex inferences is not easy
One needs to be adequately acquainted with Sri Aurobindo's work before passing superficial remarks so as to avoid possible misrepresentation
By contributing to the War Fund Sri Aurobindo stood for values of civilization and evolution full implications of which has not been grasped

@Back2Vedas Indeed? I have not read Aurobindo. Too heavy. I am more Bhakti. Not taken to Virakti.
@KiranKS its ridiculous. Sri Aurobindo supported English as lingua Franca. I don't understand this hindi obsession ! Let people chose !!
@Back2Vedas Good translation is a one thing, but inpired commentary is quit another. Nothing beats Sri Aurobindo's translation & bhasyam

English-phobia shouldn't be the hallmark of a resurgent India. "Savitri" & "The Synthesis of Yoga" are Sri Aurobindo's signal interventions.

Studying Sri Aurobindo is indispensable for understanding India's past, present, and future. That also moulds one's own life and behaviour.
Sri Aurobindo brought back the leadership in philosophy to India, said SK Maitra. Along with The Mother he turned it the evolutionary pivot.
The word Dharma should not be a hold-all cover for all ignorance and ontological contradictions. Sri Aurobindo brings clarity and conviction
Sri Aurobindo not only refutes Shankara but also tears apart the hegemony of Six Darshanas. The triune Sat-Chit-Ananda is his basic mantra.
Nostalgia for the past has no meaning in present day India. Noble principles of Vedic vintage that inform the Constitution do really matter.
Avalanche of theory emanating from the West is detested and abhorred. But nothing to fear if Sri Aurobindo is near as they are mere wordplay
Mr @orsoraggiante has rather shallow understanding of Indian polity. Porting xn west narrative on India is ridiculous http://m.firstpost.com/ideas/whyright-is-not-lovedindia-is-itlost-cause-673745.html?page=4 …
@Primal_White Animal Farm is a good primer.
BJP has polled its maximum votes during the last two elections. It must try a new alchemy as its independently coming to power is a chimera.
JP's Janata Party experiment will have another lease and on a far more mature basis if Advani-Mulayam-Nitish axis clicks. Seems fascinating.

One must avoid comparing The Mother & Sri Aurobindo with any other for their work and vision of India's future is unique and unparalleled.
Let courage of conviction come from deep understanding and inevitability of the Vedic evolutionary impetus and not from superficial slogans.
Let patriotism & nationalism stand upon the exalted twin shoulders of "The Life Divine" & "The Secret of the Veda" authored by Sri Aurobindo
The Life Divine arms us not to be intimidated by any Hawking or Dawkins, Wilber or Žižek. Sri Aurobindo outwits Fukuyama & Huntington too.
The supramental synthesis of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo reconciles all theoretical oppositions including apparent divergent economic routes.
Let rediscovery of the Veda lead Indians to the secret of the Life Divine. Needed a core group of young people to carry the message forward.
Sri Aurobindo is the original inspiration behind nationalist politics in India. Let him adorn the altar again and later aberrations excised.
2014 is not all about a new Lok Sabha. It also marks the Centenary of Sri Aurobindo's epochal "The Life Divine" & "The Secret of the Veda."
@venky2000 @orsoraggiante The Right is not right sans Sri Aurobindo. An out and out outlook of economic growth is not the sole role of India
Sri Aurobindo is the sun who assists us to unlid the golden pot of knowledge and one is emancipated from the colossal Kumbha of ignorance.
Discovering the message of Sri Aurobindo on his own terms is the secret instead of squeezing him into rigid preconceived notions of the past
The attack was a wake up call for the Ashram to step up vigilance. It also amounted to Sri Aurobindo knocking the doors of the young Indians
Just because "The Life Divine" is never discussed on NDTV it may seem it loses its relevance. Sri Aurobindo safeguards the Vedic substratum.
Sri Aurobindo has given us "The Life Divine" & "The Secret of the Veda" that redefine the idea of India. "The Human Cycle" raises the pitch.
The courage to interrogate what is handed down through the tradition is purely personal and political. Questioning shibboleths must go on.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are not a continuation but constitute a break. A thought revolution and unlearning to shed centuries of cobwebs.
Imagining one can understand India's past and foresee its future without grasping the insights of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is an illusion.
A fresh occasion 40 years later to understand the raison d'être of the nation & its Vedic heritage. India says Sri Aurobindo has a vast role
JP movement at its heart was an intense search of the nation for self-discovery after a chequered trajectory of a century. Goal was deferred
From Rammohan and Dayananda to Vivekananda, the emphasis was on the mass throughout the 19th C. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo relied on a few.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have revolutionised the perception of history and ethics pertaining to the whole Indian civilisational narrative.
