The center does not hold, but things do not fall apart. Political Theology: Four New Chapters on the Concept of Sovereignty -Paul W. Kahn
Sri Aurobindo had anticipated "confusion emerging out of a unique Indian interpretation of secularism" well ahead. http://blogs.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/just-graffiti/entry/secularism-nationalism-us …
@alok_bhatt @vjshanks Apart from Aurobindo and Dayananda Saraswathi, few Hindu scholars/philosophers have critiqued Buddhism
A seventeen year old feels s/he knows everything. But the urge for discovering one's vistas of ignorance must go on till the age of seventy.
Hunger for popularity or mass appeal shouldn't be the whole criterion. Sri Aurobindo is a cerebral celebration unlike culinary or of colours
It's not material who uttered the word Involution first, but who brought it to life and embodied it throughout his life. It's Sri Aurobindo.
Sri Aurobindo is insistent upon integration but is equally emphatic on distinctions. So, being alive to the demands of evolution is the key.
A wise enemy is better than a foolish friend and hence being wary of a political adversary involves keeping channels of communication open.

Strange how @gchikermane has not initiated any media campaign yet for securing the stay of his friend Peter Heehs in Sri Aurobindo Ashram.
Peter Heehs' one year visa extension expires on April 15 and like last year creating media attention through stage managed attack is a ploy.

haven't any seculars condemned this attack on Ashram? http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chennai/Anti-Lanka-protesters-attack-Sri-Aurobindo-Ashram-in-Puducherry/articleshow/19109176.cms …
Have the trustees of Sri Aurobindo Ashrama including Manoj Das Gupta nd Dr Karan spoken on the recent attack on Ashrama by SL supporters?No
@MaliniP Funny! Aurobindo is not even a central figure in Bengali consciousness!
@SandipGhose Few today know of the role played by Aurobindo Ghose in the Congress during the fight between Extremists and Moderates!

@rajpadma Can you please explain this tweet a bit? I didn't get it.
Easy for Kejriwal to drive from Kaushambi to Jantar Mantar to fast at the drop of a hat. Those far off may now head for Sri Aurobindo Ashram
@BhaskarChat You are asking for moon. Can anyone read and understand that book? The issue is simple; they wanted publicity & got it aplenty.
@Back2Vedas stupid, but fortunately no serious damage
The Sri Aurobindo Ashram has been and remains a soft target every time there is a
issue. But no govt protection. Connivance?
@ShivaChimp Sri Aurobindo Ashram, like Hotel Taj, was an easy target to attract attention. To that extent, their strategy has worked well.
@RajeevSrinivasa A minor correction. Sri Aurobindo Ashram is itself a semitic transmutation involving intertwining of Judeo-Vedic religions.
@PondyTweets If you admit it to be tragic, then it eminently deserves an epic battle, failures notwithstanding. Thanks for the good wishes.
@ShivaChimp If Peter Heehs thinks we will forget his crime, no, never. He is desecrating the Sri Aurobindo Ashram from within every moment.
@sunandavashisht So what is more damaging? Breaking a few bricks and flower pots or mauling in print The Mother & Sri Aurobindo's reputation
@PondyTweets I don't think you have shared the results of any opinion poll. How are you so sure?
The Manoj Das Gupta-Peter Heehs nexus has robbed the Sri Aurobindo Ashram of exemplary reputation and goodwill built over several decades.
Those outraged over the vandalism at Sri Aurobindo Ashram must also question why it is sheltering Peter Heehs who has denigrated the Master.
Has any condemnation come from Dr Karna Singh of Congress who did his Ph.D. on Aurobindo& wrote a book on him titled Prophet of Nationalism?
@prasannavishy How about an article on Sri Aurobindo finally in CRI? @amishra77 has mentioned him as a tail-ender and this is an injustice.
Deep dissention within Sri Aurobindo Ashram had failed to catch media attention but a single act by pro-Tamils could. http://www.thelivesofsriaurobindo.com/2013/03/dattagate-exposing-corrupt-trustees-of_6414.html …
@AbhiUwach Please read my views at http://savitriera.blogspot.in/ and the site http://www.thelivesofsriaurobindo.com/2013/03/dattagate-exposing-corrupt-trustees-of_6414.html … at your leisure. Sri Aurobindo warrants study.
Oops.... first eight days of students hunger strikes was not appeared.. but attack on Aurobindo Ashram got its first place here...! #TOI
@AbhiUwach I don't justify but am happy about the turn of events as a lot of people on Twitter etc. are getting aware about Sri Aurobindo.
@SandipGhose @Keefarqpaindha @Realist_Indian My intention is not to argue. Only concern is wrong information shouldn't circulate in Internet
@AbhiUwach Ashrams are not sacrosanct in a democratic polity; they are accountable. Don't overlook how Peter Heehs has been harboured.
The great Tamil poet Subramania Bharati was a friend of Sri Aurobindo. The so-called Tamil activists who hit the ashram should know better!
@AbhiUwach They call themselves rationalists and many a times are more honest than avowed spiritualists or believers. So, benefit of doubt.
@Keefarqpaindha @sandipghose @realist_indian Sri Aurobindo never "Studied under an English Governess in
Baroda." Your chance to discover him
@calamur Nandhivarman has long been exposing the misdeeds of Manoj Das Gupta over the Internet. Just Google and find out the deep rot.
@AbhiUwach I pointed out the Bengali connection as Nandhivarman has long been exposing the misdeeds of Manoj Das Gupta over the Internet.
@AbhiUwach Because the Managing Trustee of Sri Aurobindo Ashram is a Bengali who is embroiled in land scams and financial irregularities.
@SandipGhose @realist_indian Please brush up on the basics of Sri Aurobindo 's life. Don't twist history.

@KartikeyaTanna A perfect example of how indoctrinated intellectuals use the power of rhetoric to delude themselves and also their readers.
@Swamy39 @sivakumar_king Has any political party denounced the attack on Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Puducherry?
Finally, the "Five Dreams broadcast" by Sri Aurobindo is catching the imagination of the young and the patriotic. The logic of "Human Cycle"
Owing to a handful of admirers of Sri Aurobindo's "The Secret of the Veda" on Twitter, admiration towards him has grown in leaps and bounds.
Thanks to the demonstration by Periyar devotees, Sri Aurobindo is being remembered across the nation today and reverent emotion pouring in.
@Sivakumar_king : Why? Because Aurobindo said there is God?
