Spinning mythology

Ashis Nandy had mauled the memory of Sri Aurobindo like a bull in a china shop which Savita Singh has now ably countered by juxtaposing the hermeneutical reading of J.L. Mehta. Parsa Venkateshwar Rao Jr  characterizes Savarkar a morally guilty man, third rate thinker, but he is misrepresented argues Uday Mahurkar. We must differ with Gandhi, asserts Parsa Venkateshwar Rao Jr but visiting Rajghat on January 30, 2013 tells a different tale. [TNM55]
