Our man in the Cabinet

While speaking at the two-day annual conference of the Sri Aurobindo Society held in the Sri Aurobindo Bhawan, Noida (UP) on Saturday, October 07, 2006, Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil praised the organizers for periodically arranging such meetings which, he hoped should multiply, especially in today's troubled times. Because of the limited reach of this kind of gatherings, he expressed his wish that the message of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo be disseminated over the Electronic media and left it upon the organizers to see how this can materialize.

Among the public figures and the celebrities who are admirers of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo, it is very difficult to spot a genuine Savitri Eran because of their chameleon-like behaviour. But Shivraj Patil seemed to be speaking out of a sincere concern. He also visited the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry, recently on January 20. [TNM]
