Renewed resolve to take the Five Dreams Manifesto forward

Prapatti left in 1989 and Babaji Maharaj in 1998. Centres and educational institutions dedicated to The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have multiplied in Odisha since then. Round the year celebrations take place and a galaxy of writers and speakers tour all over the State. Although, more than a million people are directly involved, not much online presence is noticed. Nor, engaging with current affairs or socio-political issues. There is need for coming out of routine, mechanicity, and complacence. Infusing dynamism is the need of the hour. 

Establishing institutions for propagating some ideal seems logical but the institution imprisoning and dwarfing the ideal is also a reality. Not only that, such an institution fighting not to allow the ideal to grow organically and protecting its own hegemony is not unusual. Centralisation, bureaucratisation, and sycophancy are at the root of Odisha not being able to lead the country despite having maximum resources. Thousands of students come out of our schools every year but not even a ripple is heard from them as citizens. No one affirms in public that he has been influenced by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.

In view of University controversies and Religious mega-events, it's essential that the followers of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo make their presence felt. Misleading ideologies are having a hey day because the vision of Sri Aurobindo is still unknown and under-appreciated. There should be renewed resolve to take the Five Dreams Manifesto forward to every nook and corner of the country. And, in this task, the people of Odisha can be pioneers in the world; a historic opportunity indeed. [TNM55]
