Counting has begun

[Book row: case registered post-scuffle from A critique of the book "The Lives of Sri Aurobindo" by Peter Heehs by General Editor - The Hindu Puducherry, February 29, 2012 Dilip Dutta,  Chandi Prasad Parida] [Actions speak louder than words: political demonstration at Ashram ... by auroleaks - The demonstrators are attempting to oust the Trustees of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Over 100 outside protesters were bussed in from Orissa, and the escalating stridency of the demonstration ended in the elderly Trustees being accosted]

Heehs imbroglio surfaced in 2008 and the conflagration is lately spreading in leaps and bounds. Leading intellectuals spearhead the campaigns on both the sides but have proved to be ineffectual in convincing the other faction. Judiciary, as usual, is in no hurry, and so, the political route has assumed significance. Counting has begun and it will intensify in the days to come. Savitri Era Party, understandably, is happy about this outcome. Let political actions be conducted in a transparent manner and not clandestinely as spiritual endeavour. [TNM55]
