Toxic role of a Quixotic Bengali-duo
Thanks to the Internet and numerous discussion groups, the world is fast coming to the realisation that there is no one who can surpass the vision of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. That they are sure guides for the future of the humanity has even been acceded to by scholars of various religions in different contexts. But this recognition has not been replicated at the mass level despite unprecedented scale of Globalisation sweeping India during the last quarter-century. The reasons are many but the prime hurdle emanates from Puducherry itself.
Two power-hungry Bengalis are treating the Sri Aurobindo Ashram as their parental property and drawing it vigorously towards its ruin. Sticking to their chair has become their sole concern for many years as a result of which all promotional activities have come to a standstill. Sheer survival has become the whole outlook of the Ashram instead of world-wide outreach. Conspiracy is on as to how to secure the ownership of the Ashram's vast wealth in the name of a few nephews and nieces. The services of a handful of overseas sycophants are also being utilised to sew up some fig leaves of credibility.
It's highly deplorable that the mandarins of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry are resisting induction of young blood when the country needs most the philosophy of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. This is the moment to show to the world that the influence of Sri Aurobindo has not passed. For that we need conviction as well as courage, but the Bengali-duo, unfortunately, are engaged in all kinds of cowardly shenanigans in spreading disinformation. [TNM55]
