We have no information about the degree of zeal with which our David advised members of his community to consult the Internet site for a quick delivery of video-cassettes with "the fast-paced and interesting" film The Last Temptation of Christ by Martin Scorsese. Fortunately, David is well acquainted with legal and other consequences of such a perverse incitation.
Indeed "the people of the city" had "much to learn" on the Christ from that film by Martin Scorsese! The movie had to include, however, "a disclaimer explaining that it departs from the commonly-accepted Biblical portrayal - hagiography ? - of Jesus' life, and that it is not intended to be an exact recreation of the events detailed in the Gospels." from A critique of the book "The Lives of Sri Aurobindo" by Peter Heehs Dr Prasenjit Sen has a Ph.D. from a German university and is a successful engineer. He is the youngest son of late Pramodekumar Sen, Sri Aurobindo's biographer in Bengali.]
The Christ analogy clinches the issue of religion. Dr Sen, however, prefers to be pusillanimous on this score. [TNM]
