Constitutional impropriety

  1. Prez for generating greater tolerance, understanding
    Business Standard-
    Speaking about the two phases of life of Sri Aurobindo, he said the first phase was ...
  2. Order appointing Justice PR Raman upheld
    The Hindu-
    Originally, the writ petition was filed by Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust challenging an ...
  3. HC dismisses appeal against appointment of inquiry officer
    Business Standard-24-Sep-2013
    Originally, the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust in Puducherry had filed a petition ...

It appears odd that the President visits the Sri Aurobindo Ashram overlooking the ongoing judicial probe of it. While his message is most suited to the political atmosphere prevailing in the country, avoiding the visit at this juncture would have been more in the fitness of things. We know the worthy ones whose hidden hands are behind this Constitutional impropriety and what they are trying to achieve by this, but we repose our faith on the judiciary. Curiously, a probe by the Govt. officer was opposed even before it started but we fail to understand how a retired judge can be immune to external influences. [TNM55]

Evolution and Advani

@SavitriEraParty: Sri Aurobindo's vision of the future rolled out in 1914 through a monthly magazine named Arya. Young Indians must wake to his exhortations.
@SavitriEraParty: Sri Aurobindo was prescient enough to formulate an alternative version of Indianhood than what is offered by the Congress, RSS, or the Left.
@SavitriEraParty: BJP, like BSP, is a victim of an imaginary certainty of mustering a majority constituency. BJP is cocksure on theory while #AAP of practice.
@SavitriEraParty: Like Andhra Pradesh, BJP is finding it hard to keep its three factions together owing to overdose of presumed patriotism and righteousness.
@SavitriEraParty: R, A, M represent the present three factions of the BJP. While R is the Tamasic and M, the Rajasic, A constitutes the Sattwic propensities.
@SavitriEraParty: @gopimaliwal Please look at the future in configuring the evolutionary role of Advani instead of relying too much on examples from history.
@SavitriEraParty: @gopimaliwal But you seem to be totally clueless as to the source of the darkness and Advani has better intuition to sense it & act & lead.
@SavitriEraParty: @gopimaliwal Difficult to hazard a guess as to the possible trajectory of the Zeitgeist but Advani definitely has a prominent role in future.
@SavitriEraParty: No doubt Advani heads a faction today but it's the evolutionary wing in the BJP ready to learn & change unlike RSS hardcore or the matadors.
@SavitriEraParty: The most pragmatic and realist truth is that Advani is BJP since he created it and so to expect that he gets out of it is downright foolish.
@SavitriEraParty: Not Savarkar or Golwalkar, it's Advani who like Lenin brought the Hindutva to life and limelight. He must be given opportunity to mend it.
