Let one man & one woman polling the highest number of votes be elected as MPs from each Lok Sabha constituency. That would be real Democracy

@orsoraggiante Exactly; that is why I don't associate with MODI
Ken Wilber scoured heaven & earth but finally borrowed from Sri Aurobindo in buckets to spread his spectrum. Human Cycle is such compulsion.
leading the world while being tied to hostile forces is anomaly. In The Human
Cycle, Sri Aurobindo exposes the folly.
I do not treat Narendra Modi as a messiah as many of you do.
Sri Aurobindo reaffirms that the future of
India is not a speculative game of
chess or amenable to manipulative politics. He leads the march
Mortgaging intellect & creativity to the pygmy project of being Rajya Sabha MP is the worst kind of betrayal of the country. Truth Triumphs.

Religion based nationalism is a regressive intoxicant. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo invoke spirituality oriented human unity to push evolution
The juvenile thrill of proxy-nationalism reinforced by Cricket & Olympics prevents mature citizens' initiative towards World Union & Harmony
Most individuals and institutions in
today lack the intellectual apparatus to imbibe Sri Aurobindo's insights. One
century not enough.
Western education brought thought fermentation in
India & myriad cultural
theories began to float. Lastly Sri Aurobindo cleared the clutter.
It might seem an accident but an acutely perceptive person like V.P. Singh becoming the PM is a peak as the avalanche of hostility he faced.
Evolution Sri Aurobindo points out moves in a spiral path which means the prevailing circumstance may not be the highest achievement so far.
Being a prisoner of one's own mental image of a leader is a source of recurrent frustration. Only the Divine surpasses the human expectation
Accepting exceptions & extreme examples as the rule is the most paradoxical situation in life. But that's how one is able to exceed oneself.
Wherever one is, to feel & act like a member of an army for Global Harmony is the most challenging task today given the resistance to ideas.

BJP can't produce a better mascot than ABV who lost in 2004 and Advani bit dust in 2009. Ideology and not oratory can save it from oblivion.
With RSS as its albatross, BJP, though the principal opposition party, is clearly ill-suited to stand up to the challenges of 21st century.

Sri Aurobindo’s Integral vision is in sharp contrast to the pessimistic scenario painted by his contemporaries like Spengler and Heidegger.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo paved the way for next evolution. How the people of India align themselves to that would mean a great transition.
Anna, Kejriwal & Ramdev are dissapointments but there is wide political space beyond Sonia, BJP~RSS & the Left. Sri Aurobindo shows the way.

@tnk0205 That we have been listening for a long time. But overseas Chinese invest in China while their Indian counterparts just remit money.
@tnk0205 Economics involves history, geography, religion, culture & a host of other factors. So, no point comparing one nation with another.
@tnk0205 development is a slow process and so there is nothing to be pained about. With good understanding of theory, nothing to feel sorry.
@tnk0205 But they also remit money, invest in Indian stocks, donate to Indian institutions, spend while touring the country & bring friends.
@tnk0205 India is a combination of individuals and when their personal prosperity rises, the prosperity of the country also goes up. Simple.
@tnk0205 No one sends; the individual exercises his freedom to move wherever he likes, whenever he decides. Liberty is the key to prosperity
@tnk0205 There is no need to agree immediately but do insist on reading more by maintaining a learner's attitude. Cf. http://selforum.blogspot.com/
@tnk0205 Not exactly since remittance in foreign currency is the mainstay of our economic buoyancy. Punjab and Kerala are primary examples.
@tnk0205 Progress and prosperity are not one way traffic. Without NRIs the present level of affluence in India would have been unthinkable.
@Back2Vedas Agree. Sri Aurobindo is the most learned man I have ever read of. At the same time Dayanand's Sanskrit knowledge was unparallel.
@mirzhaywire If interested, please read Aurobindo's 'The Secret of the Vedas'. I can mail a pdf later today if you want
@tnk0205 Freedom and Harmony are the twin guiding principles driving the human civilization in the path of evolution towards its perfection.
Even "strife and opposition," says Sri Aurobindo in The Human Cycle, "is a help towards the divine purpose" (CWSA.25.65) and so is no thwart
If an invitation makes some disproportionately happy then they are bound to be equally sad at its withdrawal. Yogic equanimity is the answer

Neither dynasty nor personality, only ideology can propel India in its appointed role set forth in 1947 5-Dreams broadcast by Sri Aurobindo.
Pramod Mahajan's five-star culture offered abundant feel-good factor to varnished BJP to sell Shining India that crash landed so tragically.
Of many parallels in history Nitin Gadkari's case warrants comparison with Sitaram Kesri. The loss of face RSS has suffered has no parallel.
The prospect of BJP and RSS running a three-legged race as partners is foreclosed. The ideological mismatch is too glaring to be repaired.
