Savitri Era Party is thankful to all those who have participated in the debate

By way of recapitulation it may be stated as follows:

  1. Savitri Era Party disapproves Peter Heehs writing “a biography that, at least in part, does pose prickly questions about Sri Aurobindo that could seem inappropriate, particularly when posed by a member of Sri Aurobindo ashram.”
  2. Savitri Era Party, at the same time, defends a writer’s right to creative freedom.
  3. The Party, therefore, defends the book in toto as a work of art and disapproves Pranab's Proposal for destroying the same.
  4. The Party, further, is against the Govt. order prohibiting the publication and distribution of the book in India and demands rescinding of the same.
  5. The Party also deplores dereliction of duty on the part of the Ashram authorities and their ostrich like behavior in the aftermath.
  6. The Party requests those involved with the court cases to help negotiate a mutual settlement.
  7. The Party, finally, is thankful to all those who have participated in the debate during the last ten months enriching the collective reflexivity. [TNM]
