The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are the anchoring principle of Savitri Era Party

There have been inquiries from several quarters as regards the manifesto of the Savitri Era Party. It is a valid query, yet just a habit. No political party runs by a pre-determined manifesto for ever. It is the people who unite voluntarily under the umbrella of a party identify the programme and policies on an ongoing basis. A manifesto is framed at the time of elections keeping in mind local conditions and concerns.

The Mother & Sri Aurobindo, however, are the first and foremost anchoring principle of the Savitri Era Party. The diverse facets of their hoary legacy needs to be engaged with, interpreted, and interrogated in the arena of lived reality at various scales of collective existence. Compartmentalizing different spheres of social life has cost us dearly and hence Savitri Era Party would seek an integral approach in polity as well as in governance.

Economics is a key issue, but is said to be on autopilot in India that is likely to run through the next decade. So, till that time we may rest on our oars while turning our attention to clear the cobwebs of superstition, obscurantism, and statusquoism pervading the social sector and nurture a psychological propeller in favor of freedom and world union.
