Distortion of history is corruption of the worst kind

[Court jails Bangaru, says corruption worse than prostitution Daily News & Analysis - Saturday, Apr 28, 2012, 19:00 IST New Delhi DNA, PTI
"Corruption, to my mind is worse than prostitution as the latter might endanger the morals of an individual, whereas, the former invariably endangers the entire society. It is virulent for the nation and makes people full of ire.”]

Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry was set up in 1926 and the book by Heehs, a resident, came out in 2008. The book is not at all central to the functioning of the Ashram which has admirably survived as an institution after the passing away of Sri Aurobindo in 1950 and The Mother in 1973. Distortion of history, however, should be considered as corruption of the worst kind, and therefore, it is difficult to understand on what basis the Ashram continues to defend the book and its author for so long.
