Sabitri vs. Savitri
Tweets 5m Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty Heehs' hounds are so much soaked in humour now that their leaking wisdom is spreading too much stink. The non-history they spawn is vitriol.
38m Heehs has already built a formidable reputation as historian and will be able to write freely once he leaves Sri Aurobindo Ashram Puducherry. View location
44m We are not against Heehs or his book, we simply want him to be removed from Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry because of his adverse remarks. View location
2h Sabitri brata fast by ladies is a Perennialist's delight, but the challenge is how to transcend the legend and internalise symbol of Savitri.
3h Heehs has a curious scale to measure Avatars. He has certified some as qualified but is unwilling to extend the same favour to Sri Aurobindo.
3h Heehs wrote the book as a vehicle to propagate Leftist ire against religion and hence his presence spreads pollution in Sri Aurobindo Ashram.
4h Surely "the transformative and redemptive power of politics" can work wonders but depends on the direction it takes: Sri Aurobindo or Hitler.
4h "In the realm of the political that we can emancipate ourselves and our nation" is a fallacy unless anchored to Sri Aurobindo's philosophy.
4h No meaningful political discourse is possible today without understanding and applying what Sri Aurobindo visualises about

6h [Mahtab said that Heehs' depiction of Sri Aurobindo was objectionable as it is based on the appraisals of his critics.] http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/BJP-MP-seeks-cancellation-of-Heehs-visa/articleshow/13310937.cms
17h Heehs' visa is none of our concern. His eviction from Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry is the sole demand of countless devotees gone aghast.
18h Heehs' speech on Hinduism might be a precise statement, but his disowning of the Divine manifestation of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is evil.
18h Heehs camp started with: No Religion-No public display of Devotion campaign, but the hidden motive was to disprove Sri Aurobindo's Divinity.
20h [subodh khanna @subodh1945 Dhenkanal: The unexplored summer retreat in Odisha http://shar.es/qmfeH via @sharethis Retweeted by Savitri Era Party]
22h Danino, Elst, Frawley, Gautier, and Heehs, though sound sympathetic, are responsible for misrepresenting the message of Sri Aurobindo. [TNM55]

19 May "Questions over growing corporate ownership of the media" sounds sanctimonious as if other sectors of society are free from its tentacles.

19 May @Team_CRI @prasannavishy It's a pity that such retrograde thinking is being promoted by educated people in the name of nationalism. [TNM55] View conversation
19 May @prasannavishy Impractical theories by votaries of directed history. Sri Aurobindo's evolutionary vision offers the right alternative. View conversation
