Ashram run despotically

[Corporate delusions - The Big Picture

I have often wondered how much of all the talk of 'empowerment' , 'democratisation', 'values' and the rest is actually practised by corporations, much as corporate bosses love to expatiate on these. My own sense is that most corporations (and most organisations, in general) are run despotically with the person at the top calling most of the shots.]

So is the case with Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry. To a person drunk with power, nothing else matters than to stick to the chair. An obliging caucus ensures that while siphoning away enough consideration and comfort for its constituents. It is, obviously, difficult to explode such a vicious circle. But, when Jasmine blossoms implosion occurs and then their sequences and consequences unfold unforeseen circumstances. The key, until then, is patience. [TNM55]
