Sri Aurobindo's man in JNU

[We should thus be wary of any simplistic grand narrative of our identity as a nation. The Hindu : Magazine : India 62: Soaring high? Makarand Paranjape, Poet and Professor of English, Jawaharlal Nehru University
For Sri Aurobindo, a society, culture, or civilisation had to be judged by how developed its members were not just materially, but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. That society or nation was successful whose citizens progressed integrally and found higher and higher levels of freedom and perfection. Today, who thinks of svaraj or self-realisation?

Paranjape remains an outsider in the ghastly Marxist bastion that is JNU. [TNM]
