From alienation to anonymity, the role of philosophy is ever relevant to tackle the questions of life and society. selfskylight.wordpress.com/2015/10/12/rel…
Sri Aurobindo’s philosophy within... That explains how personal bias can stifle genuine academic inquiry. indianphilosophyblog.org/2015/10/08/the…
Most religions perpetually churn history and mythology whereas #SavitriEra is focused on the future evolution. #FollowTheMother&SriAurobindo
@ajithm69 You can modify the list of philosophers you read for better perspective instead of harbouring such an uncritical and low opinion.
@ajithm69 Empiricism, by definition, scavenges on historical data while thought and philosophy plumb the womb of अनागत to design the future.
@akazlev @shaviro hints as to how Science Fiction can be seen as amply ontologically pregnant vis-à-vis futurity at shaviro.com/Blog/?p=1323
Power without knowledge and awareness can be misleading with horrible consequences. Reading adds perspective and amplifies right perception.
Most in India are suffering from cognitive closure & the only way to get over it is by reading appropriate books preferably Sri Aurobindo's.
Not only cognition or education but also our enjoyment system runs on a set of hermeneutic motifs tied to self-interest and self-protection.
70℅ defeating 30℅ should not be the only goal. Popularising a positive political ideology as proposed by Sri Aurobindo must be the priority.
Even after capturing power, many BJP supporters are unable to come out of the compulsive habit of criticising Congress cultivated over years
@ramolia82 The Clasp of Civilizations by Richard Alan Hartz dkprintworld.com/product-detail… The Forgotten September11 and the Clasp of Civilizations
Sri Aurobindo wrote out his Yogic prescriptions after analysing in depth the root causes of the malady afflicting the present civilisation.
Let the luminous wisdom of Savitri and The Life Divine mould the minds so that waves of new action and education become the order of the day
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have laid down the secured blueprint towards a harmonious civilisation. Each nation must consent to follow them.
State is amply empowered to deal with crime, terror, or war; one of its basic functions. All noise surrounding these, therefore, superficial
If current scientific evidence favours AIT/AMT, there should be no hesitation in accepting that. Indology Conference should settle the issue
Shourie campaigned against Indira; history remembers him. He campaigned against V.P. Singh; a blunder. Now if he takes on Modi, it'd be apt.
National interest should concern the educated citizens more than the interest of any particular party, organization, or person. Speak out!
Instead of criticising the Prime Minister upfront, supporters choose the sly route of attacking Jaitley or others as a concession. Amusing!
Modi cheerleaders are slowly discovering their folly but the cost has been enormous for the country. Let Shourie show the right way to them.
What SwarajyaMag and IndiaFactsOrg serve in the guise of intellectual culture are substandard and at times regressive. Opt for Sri Aurobindo
A large section of Sri Aurobindo's followers are Nehruvian and another wedded to Hindutva. Time to unhinge from these outdated formulations.
The nation must learn to graduate from the juvenile enthusiasms led by Nehru to more cerebral and penetrating insights left by Sri Aurobindo
Human destiny is not constrained by national boundaries and Evolution is irreverent of geographical barriers. Man set to transcend himself.
Cultural purity is a common sense approach of seeking identity and security but finding common essence amidst plurality is the destination.
Neither plurality nor homogeneity is sacrosanct for Sri Aurobindo. How any situation serves the purpose of Evolution is what's most relevant
Sri Aurobindo's thought has disruptive potential for all religions & their radical ideologies. Evolutionary forces are slowly ensuring that.
Anti-Congressism has justifiably dominated the political discourse till now. The way ahead is to find a secure path following Sri Aurobindo.
Congress drowned in the Nehru boat & BJP awaits the same fate in the Hindutva boat. Indians must follow Sri Aurobindo for an enduring future
Both AAP and BJP in their current forms are unviable. Nitish Kumar too in the present scenario looks vulnerable. Only recourse Sri Aurobindo
Indians must read and discover Sri Aurobindo's insights on their own instead of depending upon foreigners to exposit twitter.com/kids4kids1233/…
Sri Aurobindo helps you to focus more in terms of an individual and the Evolutionary imperative than being a Hindu or a Communist or a Dalit
Judging people and events in history by one's own intellect is as fraught with hazard as assuming the Earth as flat relying upon observation
Sensibilities so basic in Sri Aurobindo's thought don't percolate to the worldview of those under Hindutva sway and that is how they suffer.
Modi camp is more into relying upon the people of Intelligence background than the intelligence of Humanities experts and lifetime insights.
The principle of Evolution is just this: that you dislike the present order and aspire for greener pasture. Indians must cultivate intellect
Politics has become election-centric and strict allegiance would be demanded. And those with rebellious traits will wake up to Sri Aurobindo
Freedom unhinged from Philosophy, similarly, is potentially pathological. Sri Aurobindo offers the most viable template for Right Wing turn.
Freedom is the watchword of Right Wing; it also amounts to free thought. Mortgaging intelligence to Hindutva can never lead to excellence.
@bhoopalp To clarify, those who uphold Free Markets shouldn't be conflated with supporters of Hindu Nationalism and be called as Right Wing.
It's a misfortune of Indian intellectual climate that Right Wing enthusiasts are unable to come out of the apron strings of Hindutva hoopla.
Leftists curse Neo-liberal policies; Hindutva-wallahs denounce Secular-Liberal polity. Truly baffling to make sense of any such utopian zone
@rahulkanwal Even Ghar Wapsi seems to be forgotten.
@bhoopalp @Donna0sborn @Parikramah Moral standards are many a times a low priority when it comes to executing gigantic Evolutionary changes.
Any totalizing idea about India, therefore, is fraught with defects of speculation and wishful thinking. Bihar polls wakes up all to reality
Indian subcontinent was never a single kingdom or nation, nor is it today. Race, language, culture, etc. were always plural and competing.
@waglenikhil @PriyabrataT You should say Savarkar-Golwalker. Moonje-Hedgewar ought to be judged in different light. marketime.blogspot.in/2012/03/dr-moo…
Adverting to Sri Aurobindo would have supplied muscle to the argument but ideological straightjacket tuns it insipid twitter.com/FutureExplore/…
Even books by Indians on religion and culture tend to avoid Sri Aurobindo or just mention his name in passing as is the practice on Twitter.
Sri Aurobindo's political vision and philosophical sophistication far surpasses that of anyone from the West but not many books refer to him
Ironically, many people are introduced to the spirituality taught by Sri Aurobindo before being oriented on his socio-political formulations
What is good for India? Language, culture, religion, economics, politics, etc.? No match for Sri Aurobindo who vividly foresees the future.
Kejriwal & Modi could catapult themselves to the top but staying there sans dynastic charisma or ideological spell is difficult proposition.
The philosophical victory achieved by Sri Aurobindo over the West needs to be highlighted by Indians which the Westerners tend to undermine.
While discussing their 20th Century philosophers is fairly common, Westerners slip back to 5th Century when it comes to Indian Philosophy.
BJP was emasculated enough not to ferment further religious hatred. Obviously, Gujarat was an embarrassment. [TNM55] savitriera.blogspot.in/2009/06/george…
A mainstream party adhering to the cause of Freedom and facilitating Globalisation is needed for which Sri Aurobindo is the best inspiration
Discovering a new substratum for politics in the shape of Sri Aurobindo's philosophy is a must in view of new challenges posed by young gen.
Nitish Kumar must wake up to the urgency of liberating India from the grip of both Congress and RSS, and not succumbing to Yadav dominance.
Listening to the music of a dance item Nataraja by Madhavi Mudgal set by A Maheshwar Rao on a poem by Mayadhar Mansingh with full Odia pride
@ynotbe86 @ashokkmrsingh It's also worth investigating what Sri Aurobindo calls religion of humanity in later writings. Matter of research.
@ynotbe86 @ashokkmrsingh That's a pointer only. You can probe independently whether he meant Sanatana Dharma as equivalent to Hinduism.
@ynotbe86 @ashokkmrsingh "Renovator of Hinduism" may not be an accurate assessment of Sri Aurobindo if one goes by: anti-matters.org/articles/58/pu…
@varundutta2381 No such compulsion for exhibiting loyalty and consistency in a Democracy. Citizens must be vigilant to judge issues on merit
@tatyabichchhoo @rameshsrivats Political adversaries are a permanent feature in Democracy & branding them traitor is absolutely unwarranted.
@chinmaykrvd Everyone has contributed. Nitish was undoubtedly the magnet to raise perceptions. Kejri-Mamata supporting him added credibility
@shashidigital Standing before the Masjid there also imparts an overpowering experience.
BJP must confront the truth that the popularity of Modi is drummed up and lacks emotional element. His fifteen months of fame already over.
BJP must learn to hitch its wagon to the forces of future evolution and not chariots of the past. Paying attention to Sri Aurobindo can help
CM candidates must emerge through open internal contests and not by lazy speculations on Twitter. BJP needs that kind of honest functioning.
Robust internal democracy and open contest for top posts is the only way for BJP to acquire vibrancy and effect ideological reformulations.
So satisfying to see BJP supporters now repeating what we have been saying about its dismal state of affairs for over more than one year.
RSS is no manufacturing industry but has to pay its cadre. Those ranting against it must understand its financial constraints & compulsions.
Make someone a Minister and he can't do any other job later. [Give a man a fish ... teach to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.]
Onus of safeguarding one's freedom lies upon each individual. Let no metanarrative like Hindutva usurp it in the guise of glorious tradition
Civilisation, Culture, and Democracy are evolving phenomena. So let no one define them for ever on any predetermined template like Hindutva.
Neither Nehruvian consensus nor Hindutva straightjacket is fit for future India. Sri Aurobindo's philosophy is the only recourse available.
Sri Aurobindo attempts to understand Death in his philosophical epic Savitri and it’s worth consulting. larvalsubjects.wordpress.com/2014/09/04/ref…
BJP supporters must decide first what do they want. Whether they want to rule the Country/States or Hindu unity. Achieving both not possible
BJP might consider its product as the best but garnering popular support warrants concessions and climbing down. twitter.com/timesofindia/s…
Modi squandering away an unprecedented mandate in less than two years is a clear sign of Hindu incompetence, insecurity and inferiority bug.
Right moment for Nitish Kumar to shift to Delhi; being CM will tie him down. The nation needs him more than Bihar. twitter.com/SavitriEraPart…
Bihar results expose how so much of rubbish is peddled over Twitter which are enthusiastically recirculated but our unbiased view is ignored
In his speech in Talkatora Stadium on October 30, 2013, Nitish Kumar resolved to fight fascism which he redeemed today. Exemplary trajectory
Catering to cow welfare instead of addressing human misery means dwelling in fools' paradise. BJP must vow to eschew such contentious issues
It's not the cadre who have failed BJP, it's the intellectuals among its supporters and their arrogance which is eating into its credibility
Someone was singing the virtue of huge rallies by Modi, a few days back. Now, there should be rethink on it as regards electoral dividend.
Bihar turned into a neat fight between rival camps. No such luck for UP in 2017. SP has to be backed to the hilt to keep BSP and BJP at bay.
The third point is Modi must address the Press from time to time so that he connects to the people in a natural way and escape ivory tower.
She may not have much to do with the Bihar defeat, but shifting Smriti Irani from HRD would signal drop in Modi's arrogance and nonchalance.
Rajnath Singh must be the happiest person today and can expect heading BJP for the third time soon. He is next to Gadkari on who RSS relies.
Dr Kalam was a Global citizen and represented the Integral spirit. His memory must be rescued from being besmirched by a controversial road
Nothing wrong in wanting Hindu Rashtra. But circulate a draft Constitution, add it to your Manifesto and win an Election on the basis of it.
@avenger_D @snehal_gandhi Agree. But why cow was an issue at all? Isn't it harakiri?
Bihar verdict should also serve as a lesson for all those followers of Sri Aurobindo who had started leaning on Modi too disproportionately.
@chinmaykrvd The restless soul of late Dr. Kalam on forcibly being identified with a controversial road in Delhi has also its occult effect.
@shantprakash @PahadiaVijay BJP forgot Advani during the last two years but he still possesses the potential to steer the party in right way
Supporters are neurotically attached to the false superhuman image of Modi which has thankfully been dented drastically by the Bihar verdict
@Ish_Apte Whatever we want has to be through a political party and electoral politics. That's the constraint Democracy imposes. That's fair.
@Ish_Apte You may be partly right, but any possible reforms have to be pursued within the ambit of the Constitution and not by defying it.
@Ish_Apte The Constitution is a legal provision which ensnared me as soon as I was born sixty years back. So, here, I don't have any option.
BJP must shed the twin crutches of Modi and RSS and learn to grow organically by following mainstream policies as per Indian Constitution.
Hindutva ecosystem is yet to debate its ideological moorings adequately and with honesty. Bihar defeat affords a magnificent opportunity.
@skjain_05 @AnaMyID @arungiri @lazybanker Savitri Era Party drawing inspiration from Sri Aurobindo is the most suitable option for Indians.
Trouncing Congress Dynasty and now the clout of Modi are welcome developments but only Sri Aurobindo's ideology can lend Evolutionary push.
Bihar MGB is an unprecedented grand alliance against Modi with tacit blessings even from sections of RSS/BJP/NDA. It lacks ideological glue.
Etv has proved all other channels as jokers today. They must start a national channel with their credible reporting highlighting grassroots.
@Parikramah @sarkar_swati @maidros78 A distinct political line inspired by Sri Aurobindo is the need of the hour. savitriera.blogspot.in
Sri Aurobindo was able to foresee 100 years back what India is debating now. He worked for World Union to overcome ignorance and intolerance
Amusing that some on Twitter consider themselves wiser than Sri Aurobindo; question his interpretation of the Veda and rejection of rituals.
Reading Mother & Sri Aurobindo's works is a sure means to be cured of stupidity, rascality, bigotry, and intolerance incarnateword.in
This is semifinal only, as V.P. Singh used to remark. Interestingly, the poise and maturity exhibited by Nitish Kumar reminds of Raja Saheb.
Without holdng any polls, it can safely be be said that BJP vote share will be restricted around 30%. So reassuring for the future of India!
Each one is entitled to his own edition of Ontology and act accordingly, but when it comes to teaching it to others certain scrutiny is must
Cultivating an intellectual ecosystem involving those anchored to Mythology, Astrology, and Rituals is, obviously, a humongous contradiction
@jaganniwas I respect your love for Modi but fear that so much of trust and faith will come crashing down one day. Just keeping you warned!
Jyoti Basu, Ramakrishna Hegde, and L.K. Advani were prevented from becoming the Prime Minister. History would have been, surely, different!
It's a failure of Indian nation when people like Shourie and Akbar accept Modi as their leader. The tragic consequences are bound to follow.
For most supporters Modi becoming PM is a matter of great satisfaction. That, itself, is not a virtue; its quality which matters ultimately.
It's an utter failure of both Democratic modality as well as Hindu Nationalism that a person like Shourie is pushed out whereas Modi rules.
Shourie and Sinha criticisms are manufactured to create false cacophony and sympathy for Modi in advance before the impending Bihar defeat.
BJP fans perpetually suffer from inferiority complex. Their tweets are steeped in victimhood who always justify own fault by citing congress
Hindu or Muslim, Left or Right, Dharmic or Abrahamic, goodness has no substitute which each human being ought to cultivate sans any holiday.
RSS relies heavily on loyalty, preaching, and propaganda. Democracy functions in the reverse direction by valorizing individual preference.
Democracy is nonchalant regarding predetermined schemes like Hindu Rashtra. Its only concern is to reflect the will of the people accurately
Indian reality and technology impose linguistic diversity and, hence, to hold that schooling be imparted in mother tongue is a superstition.
Democracy and fighting of elections is nothing but a game flouting the rules of which can disrupt, corrupt, and dismantle the game itself.
BJP might have drawn a hit-list of roads in prime locations for accommodating its leaders whenever they happen to expire in the future!
The soul of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam can't rest in peace unless his name is withdrawn from being identified with that controversial road in Delhi.
BJP fans are so focused on Muslims that all other issues afflicting Indian society fail to receive their attention or attempt at mitigation.
BJP can't grow as a natural party to rule as vast and diverse a country like India on twin crutches of Modi and RSS. savitriera.blogspot.in/2015/10/nurtur…
Viewpoints of Savitri Era devotees might diverge, but even questioning can be part of Yoga. seof.blogspot.in/2015/10/ashram…
Most BJP fans' responses, sadly, suffer from Ad hominem logical fallacy. Opponents are attacked personally and not the content of arguments.
Those brought up on a neat Dharmic/Abrahamic taxonomy might claim monopoly over ethics but moral force is universal and surely not a farce.
Being in a ridiculous minority, their votes don't matter, but their voice represents a moral force and therefore remains relevant over time.
Talent is rare and, hence, the nation must not be driven to a situation for disregarding creativity and artistic activity even by opponents.
Political opponents are an integral feature of Democratic set up but arts and literature are Civilisational resource. Handle them with care.
Political patronage and an environment of approval is a spur for creativity to blossom. So, questioning the background of writers is unfair.
Resist the temptation of discrediting literature/creative arts in the guise of opposing political adversaries. Remember "the author is dead"
Nurturing Creativity, Quality, & Talent should be the national goal and not soulless repetition of mythological tales & meaningless rituals.
The most ardent supporters of BJP are its worst enemies who fail to understand how much antipathy they add for the party by their hardline.

I'm a late riser and, hence, I dread the prospect of sleep timings slipping into the provisions of UCC. Nothing seems impossible at present!
Admiring the deserving among those living should be considered a bigger virtue and a duty than paying tributes to the dead, year after year.
Is RSS, too, a fan of anarchy like Kejriwal? It seems to be driving the country towards chaos without establishing first the measuring rods.
Modi camp is more into relying upon people of Intelligence background than the intelligence of Humanities experts & their lifetime insights.
@chinmaykrvd One may or may not agree with their political views but top intellectuals like Mehta deserve respect and space. @krishnarjun108
