Nature abhors the periodicity and symmetry imposed by Democracy
Tweets by @SavitriEraParty
Prominent intellectuals on Twitter supporting BJP are more or less exposed now for their half-hearted enthusiasm for Modi as Hindutva saviour
BJP insulted women in particular and the country in general by first appointing and now removing an underqualified person as HRD Minister.
One sin remedied; two more persist: 1) PM and Party President must not be from same State & 2) PM must face the Press and respond extempore.
Smriti Irani has every right to fight for her rightful place in politics & my tweets are not against her. But HRD was a mistake on her part.
@IamIndian4alwyZ @DrGPradhan I have said it before: I have no objection to any other portfolio or PM. But HRD Minister should have Degrees.
Irani at HRD, against widespread resentment, was a constant reminder of Modi's arrogance, authoritarianism, and willful disregard for norms.
Many Modi supporters had expressed their consternation but @madhukishwar and @sarkar_swati had almost campaigned against Smriti Irani at HRD
Many are talking about Irani's performance or lack of it as the reason but the real relief is she was not educationally fit to be appointed.
@bmcowl9 Quite intriguing that many in BJP are vehemently against Jaitley despite his intellectual prowess and as Govt's conscience keeper.
Let's all aspire and work for a nation where no one is identified as SC, ST, Dalit, or OBC and no discrimination or privilege on that basis.
Reservations have served their purpose and time now to throw away the crutches and develop capability to compete; savor equality and freedom
@RaisinaSeries You may be right but the lingering suspicion that AAP is the B-Team of BJP is yet to be conclusively disproved. cc @skjain_05
Divisions on the basis of castes, religions, and languages are deep and intimidating but migrations and marriages facilitate bridging them.
One law for all people in the country and abolition of Reservations or any kind of discrimination/privilege on the basis of birth is our aim
Enough is enough. State has no business in segregating citizens into rivals and reinforce unjust preferences in the name of social justice.
Imposition of lifestyle codes such as on dress, food, and marriage by political parties or religious organisations need to be done away with
Most BJP supporters keep on ranting about Muslims but never utter a word about the secret Money dealings that lubricate their own ecosystem.
No questions are asked as to how their numerous organisations run and a bland rhetoric circulates that there is no corruption in the Govt.
Ideology of Hindutva or Nationalism is a mere mask and Money is the only Dharma that RSS understands. Let RW warriors turn their guns there.
No one ever demands electoral reforms or deplores reliance on Money power during polls. Demography is considered more crucial than Democracy
Whenever some controversy is raging over SM or a mock fight between Party men, be sure that 'mota maal' is changing hands clandestinely.
If someone says I don't breathe, would you believe him? Same is the case with folks proclaiming they are atheists. One rarely knows oneself!
There is more to know is the basic premise that fuels all philosophical investigation; limited competence is underlying factor for humility.
Expertise acquired in a certain field might mesmerise one as a know-all but finitude is a reality and the way mind moves is warped & twisted
Apart from Money, attraction for Power and Sex apply wobbling effect all the time, due to which rational thinking is almost an impossiblity.
20th century Psychology has expanded the scope of Sex so much that any form of pleasure-seeking (like long Twitter sessions) too is included
Similarly, Power games are source of most of our moves and moral posturings; even ostensible pursuit of austerity and ideological strictness
A name is being discussed as if he is running the world. No person or organisation, it's Evolution that is, firmly, in charge of the future.
@AgentSaffron In fact, their language (Jatland upwards) sounds like pelting stones and hence the impression. But good people are everywhere.
Democracy facilitates change but the strict periodicity and symmetry followed by it is often in variance with the Nature's scheme of things.
Talent is rare and Nature invests lots of it plus opportunity to catapult people to the top which it may not want to reverse after 5 years.

Hindu Rashtra Inhabitants (HRIs) are so insulated psychologically that they are repulsed by any trace of the West, Christians, or Muslims.
There have been millions of Muslims who never slayed polytheists. As they flouted their scripture, the question is whether they are Muslims?
An individual born to Muslim parents has every right to act in a manner he thinks fit as per scripture, laws of the land, and social mores.
A highly-educated gang of five is aggressively circulating its alarming projections on demographics as if Muslims are second class citizens.
@E_P_W Hindutva stalwarts are allergic to the Leftist discourse and so show symptoms of Theory deficiency. This book can heal their anaemia.
India was firmly under the British rule but Sri Aurobindo was audaciously writing about Evolution & Supramental Consciousness a century back
Handful of misguided brains are responsible for fermenting unrest in the world in the pretext of nationalism or religion. They need reform.
Reliance on The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is the only way to be on the side of Evolution and "fight successfully the great battle of the future"
Aspiring that "nothing in us shall be an obstacle to" Evolution necessitates to be under their "influence to the exclusion of every other."
Most are happy attributing disturbances to rival religions or nations but Sri Aurobindo saw them as human problem due to Evolutionary logjam
A vocal section of Indians claiming to be angels and demonizing the people of other religions is height of hypocrisy. Causes are elsewhere.
Mythology is unscientific and anti-Evolutionary but apart from Soft Power its potential for tourism and allied economic activities enormous.
The British gifted us Democracy. This single event is a thousand times more valuable than the seven thousand years of Indian civilisation.
Imprint of the West is unmistakable in every aspect of life in India today, so much so that it takes some effort to create ethnic ambiance.
No point in indulging in conjectures and there was never an entity named India. Thinking for future should be based on hard facts of history
@aatmashodh Monarchy and feudalism are yet to be exorcised from Democratic functioning in India even after 70 years. https://t.co/xX5oPQl1M1
@aatmashodh Each system has its merits and demerits. Removing imperfections should be the aim of political process by grappling with issues.
@aatmashodh It seems that you are against Democracy and the Constitution of India. I may not be able to prove but rate Democracy as the best
@aatmashodh I never thought I'm so important! Thanks for the attention and analysis of my views. Democracy permits all sorts of viewpoints.
@aatmashodh That's fine but everyone accepting a monochromatic narrative of Indian pride and self-respect is surely a little bit problematic
@aatmashodh Each citizen will have his own conception including deviant themes. Democracy is about choice and freedom; not imposing of norms
Indian legal system, thankfully, borrows heavily from the West. Many facets of social system of modern India are mirror images of the West.
Films can be said to be the biggest contributor of domesticating Western lifestyle by bridging the language barrier. https://t.co/V5Dv5RKMw2
@akazlev Please spare some time for Indian affair as various ethical issues are being debated involving clash between tradition & modernity.
If people are getting organised for destructive purposes, why can't the Savitri Erans come forward to work together towards a positive goal?
Sri Aurobindo was not merely a Freedom fighter, he was fighting against ideas, against status quo, and never hesitated to criticise leaders.
Instead of trying to engage with the web of ideas Sri Aurobindo wove at Pondicherry, some foolishly complain, "Why he left politics midway?"
Sri Aurobindo advised his disciples to practice surrender to The Mother and a new religion can be said to have sprouted despite his denials.
@Benamrakshas Books by Georges van Vrekhem and Rod Hemsell are available online which provide a well rounded appreciation of Sri Aurobindo.
Writings of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo contain such subversive material that all major religions are to crumble by their serial explosions.
Beware of half-a-dozen foreigners who, for the sake of their own career rehabilitation, quote Sri Aurobindo's words to fan Hindu fanaticism!
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo convince us to come out of the juvenile conception that "My religion is better than yours." They debunk them all.
Ambedkar never read, wrote on, or quoted Sri Aurobindo and consequently stands as a formidable barrier in the path towards Dalit emancipation
@ksunjai @_Mauna_ Several layers of disagreement if we survey Lacan, Foucault, Derrida and Baudrillard to our own The Mother & Sri Aurobindo
