A new Constitution and a new Manifesto

Prakash Karat performed a yeoman’s service to the nation by forcing the 'historic blunder' leading to the Left collapsing under its own weight. Manoj Das Gupta, however, seems to be lucky but his props are bound to come down very soon. The argument that The Mother has irrevocably designed the grids of administration for all time to come is utterly fallacious, and Sri Aurobindo Ashram is definitely in the dire need of a new Constitution and a new Manifesto.

Limiting Sri Aurobindo’s action and relevance to the Ashram and Auroville alone is another canard. It is illogical to delink agency from history, therefore; and repeating the mistake of disregarding the ripples at the margins. [TNM55]
