Analyse Sri Aurobindo from 1947 to 1950
Politics in India has seen diverse phases and building an alternative to BJP should be seen as the most important challenge for citizens now.
Modi win can never legitimise the sinister mode of his ascendancy just as Kejriwal's Dharna as CM can't be justified by his agitational past.
Nation's intellectuals mortgaging their freedom of expression to a Party & a PM is perhaps the most deplorable aspect of human civilisation.
Overnight changing of Party loyalty constitutes worst kind of ideological corruption that is far more despicable than financial corruption.
Nothing wrong with people swooning under charisma but when planned & sponsored by a Cartel, it turns into a racket detrimental to Democracy.
BJP is busy blending modern branding with traditional emotions associated with Religion & Politics but Sri Aurobindo aims to transcend them.
Hindutva is equally guilty of twisting Religion as Nehruvian faulty view of it. Sri Aurobindo integrates its appropriate role with Politics.
Those against RSS are yet to understand that the Gandhi-Nehru-Marx template is inadequate to fight it and only Sri Aurobindo has ammunition.
Modi is quietly replicating Mao that "attacked and harassed members of China’s elderly and intellectual population." http://t.co/Es6PsdWe93
@Lutyenspundit Reading, and not a Library, is needed now that everything is available online. http://t.co/ifVt8jX0p3
@Lutyenspundit That is where the guidance of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo helps immensely. http://t.co/M1cD31sEYU
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo save us from trouble of straying into avoidable areas of inquiry & superfluous exposition. http://t.co/KERV3zqeZG
Being introduced to Sri Aurobindo via his potent political views is the gateway for far richer discoveries relating to life goals and skills.
@Mr_MohitB @sunkal1 Fine argument and to obviate it we are calling ourselves belonging to Savitri Era Religion, a brand new universal faith.
@sunkal1 I said Hindutva as popularised by RSS since Hinduism is a nebulous term. Sri Aurobindo however has spoken against all old Religions.
@sunkal1 Sri Aurobindo might have felt against certain practices obtaining then but he can't be said to be opposing Democracy in principle.
@sunkal1 Critical scholarship doesn't agree with such a narrow portrayal of Sri Aurobindo but you are entitled to your fond impressions.
@sunkal1 The historical context was different 100 years back but if we analyse Sri Aurobindo from 1947 to 1950, a different picture emerges.
BJP follows the strategy of deploying a couple of supporters on Twitter to slam every major decision or proposed legislation by the Govt.
A cursory comparison between Dr MMS and Modi as PM shows that both are unresponsive to questions and criticism, of course, in divergent ways.
Every nation must renegotiate Democracy and Freedom after regular intervals and India is on the spur of such a moment thanks to Modi wave.
Modi is winning over outsiders gradually and the day is not far off when Kejriwal too would feel charmed by his charisma ending 5 yrs enigma
If Modi continues as PM in 2022, he will surely be ashamed of his juvenility while meeting foreign heads during his first year of in office!
@krishnarjun108 Clarity in presentation and spot on on Party flaws but attributing Govt initiatives personally to Modi smacks of sycophancy.
BJP supporters spare no occasion to accuse Kejriwal of Nautanki but none complains when their own man performs and they go ecstatic over it.
@sanjaypugalia @virat_hindu2 Role of Sheila Dikshit in fleshing out an image of a stern & meticulous female administrator can't be belittled.
@souvickch @bharat_builder Not merely micromanagement of Constituencies can deliver; it's ideology which sways voters and AAP has none yet.
Hindutva and Mythology are responsible for India's backwardness which must be replaced by Sri Aurobindo's Philosophy. http://t.co/hmONkhAU8s
Origin of Congress, Left, and Hindutva converge but ideological chasms at present are irreconcilable. So, Sri Aurobindo is the only way out.
@bhoopalp Chinese cities may be prosperous but rest of population not affluent. Indian situation is different and so no point in comparing.
Following Sri Aurobindo and not Lohia, Ambedkar, or Savarkar that Indians can carry their country to the next level of progress & prosperity.
India will be impoverished by cutting off from high intellectual tradition of the West in the same way as UP insulating itself from English.
1515 onwards is context enough to judge the status of India in 2015 during which the contributions of the West are enormous and overpowering.
We needn't be niggardly in acknowledging our debt to the West for Modernity and Democracy and stop overplaying the role of Ancient India.
Obama visit has once again underscored perpetual inferiority complex of Indians vis-à-vis the West in all Professional and Performance areas.
We had a Prime Minister who held the ability to understand each clause of the Nuclear Deal but the same can't be said about the incumbent.
How far is the role of @NITIAayog in formulating the Indo-US Nuclear Deal? Or, it's a glorified mute spectator?
A new Govt shouldn't face any opposition, election, or Parliamentary scrutiny during its first year so that it exhausts its whims & fancies.
No Padma Bhushan to Shanti Bhushan or Prashant Bhushan?
There is perhaps no other person than R.K. Laxman who is so universally loved and respected by all Indians. Deserves a National mourning.
The @Statesman_News preserved its reputation of being staid for a long time but its current Apps is perhaps one of the best among its genre.
Like Insurance agents or Amway push sellers, RSS Pracharaks are a bore, but they impose themselves as most interesting persons in the world.
RSS emphasises upon physical presence and personal acquaintance to boost commitment instead of imparting systematic intellectual enrichment.
The basic training RSS Pracharaks undergo is how to seduce youngsters for attending their Shakha by behaving like one of them and it stays.
@AnilAroraLdh Mohan Bhagwat and Amit Shah already hold the domains vacated by Sonia and Ahmed respectively. Modi is merely a glorified mask.
Modi wants two smooth terms and he understands very well that there is no better formula than following the footsteps of Dr. Manmohan Singh.
Hindutva, instead of being an imposition, should be part of a voluntary self-discovery the process in which RSS can be an agile facilitator.
Barring stray comments stoking controversies RSS seems to be interested in igniting debate and discussion instead of pushing issues too far.
@CRamanaKumar Modi, in fact, wants Kejriwal to win and become subordinate to him and if Bedi gets defeated, BJP doesn't lose much.
@mohitiitd Congress ouster is surely the brighter side but decline of inner Party democracy in BJP & lack of transparency vis-à-vis RSS bad.
@mohitiitd Depends upon how you look at it and you are entitled to subscribe to the popular perception. I however find no reason to change.
@mohitiitd Nothing related to Sri Aurobindo here. Expressing my apprehensions about powerful business & finance Cartels operating worldwide.
Although performance of the BJP Govt. so far has been satisfactory by and large, there is nothing to write home about on the Party front.
An international syndicate running BJP now is the most frightening scenario for India's Democratic system. Even, Obama visit part of menu.
Market-driven economy includes Govt. intervention and participation and in no way antithetical to it. Preventing Cartelisation is the task.
Consensus imposed by the High Command is cancerous for a Political Party and must be avoided so that grassroots leadership grow organically.
As the Party structure of BJP is getting corroded due to autocratic functioning, the chance of an alternative Right-leaning Party is bright.
Congress is drowning due to lacklustre Dynasty and outdated Gandhi-Nehru paradigm. Sri Aurobindo should be the new national inspiration now.
BJP Govt. in Delhi is in the interest of NCR welfare now but forming an alternative Right-leaning National Party is the need of the hour.
@rranjan501 Poison or not, the country has to grin and bear it. But there shouldn't be a situation that there is no alternative to BJP.
Those frustrated with the AAP experiment should band together to create a broad based Party first instead of looking as BJP as panacea.
Parties are in disarray; no Party intends to nurture internal democracy. Pity that people of Delhi have no fair option to vote against BJP.
@ravighiyar @centerofright Sure, with Sri Aurobindo as inspiration, sooner than later.
Reason why Mythology is pernicious. "The concepts the mind clings to are the most powerful idols." http://t.co/TW6QtmolLG @IndiaFactsOrg

@ThinkersPad @_Mauna_ Pali is suspected to be an older version of Odia that was accorded Classical status recently (1st North Indian lang.).
@ThinkersPad @_Mauna_ It was all part of Kalinga empire then and the word Pali means village. Even Buddha was born in Odisha, a theory says.
@ThinkersPad @_Mauna_ I'm not into these rival claims but lots of scholarship and documentation is available for serious students of history.
