[The joys of the order, the beauty of a certain transcendental discipline has to be experienced. It has to be felt and dissipated, not communicated. Leela Gandhi’s note on mongrelization of subjectivity and self-exile was amply present. Sadly, her utopian exhortation of fin-de-siecle divine friendship reflects little democratic give and take, not this day at least. Ecstatic Archaisms of Aurobindo Ghose - Prasanta Chakravarty The cultural-political trope of political vedantism must be recognized as a legitimate adversary for radical democratic politics in India.]
[It is in this sense that Sri Aurobindo and the Mother speak of India as "the guru of the world," not as the general people of India today represent it but as a potential which they should be under no illusion that they have reached.

[At a time of momentous global change and evolutionary crisis, the world needs Sri Aurobindo's insights as never before. It seems to me that neither the Ashram nor India have the right to keep Sri Aurobindo to themselves or to confine the discourse on him within a particular devotional framework decided, as in the religions of the past, by a group of self-proclaimed guardians of the Truth. by Angiras on Sat 22 Nov 2008 09:50 PM PST Profile Permanent Link Re: Explanation of my Stand wrt The Lives of Sri Aurobindo]
[kaankshe said... I like the dialogue in the movie between Gurubhai and the minister about the petro industry .. listen carefully to the dialogue .. excerpts of the dialogue is given below ...
He says to the minister that I came here not to ask permission but for an opinion ... I have a load ( 500 Crore business ) and you tell me what to do with that .. its huge load that can kill or destroy anybody ..1:51 AM ... When the history of our recent times is written the inexorable rise of Dhirubhai Ambani will be one of its more memorable chapters... There is no other story in India comparable with Ambani's.
