There can be no other situation more despicable that the Ashram is happily earning royalties from a spiced up book on Sri Aurobindo written by one of the inmates in a critical tone. The fact that Angiras’ siblings keep pouring accolades upon Das Gupta makes the density of suspicion thicker. It’s not the question of what Heehs will do or not do, as Auroman has argued elsewhere, but for how long Das Gupta be allowed to destroy the foundation and reputation of the Ashram.
Tharoor had to resign within three days, but Das Gupta is sitting pretty for the last three years. And the irony is people are addressing petitions to the culprit himself. [TNM]
