Scripting fruition of the Postscript

At about the same time when the Constituent Assembly was busy giving a final shape to the Constitution of India in 1949 in Delhi, Sri Aurobindo applied himself to writing in Puducherry - barely a year before his passing away - an elaborate justification for establishment of World Union, his Third Dream. Admittedly, one of his last and most profound pronouncements on a patently political topic, A Postscript Chapter constitutes a vision and a prophecy in international relations that might seem too remote at the moment but the logic of which is assuming an ever increasing certitude day by day. The question now is whether some ground level machinery for facilitating the fruition of such a grand idea is in operation at present. [TNM55]
