Literal reading of Sri Aurobindo can be deceptive. He, rather, helps to juggle with ideas and ontological constructs as a mental gymnastics.
Purpose of education is to make modern generation aware about wrongs of motheaten theologies, scientific theories, and political ideologies.
There is a real problem of communication,
Due to language, various languages, and comprehension;
Not to speak of vagaries of interpretation.
University syllabus is an arbitrary imposition and not anything Divinely ordained. They need to be challenged and reconstituted every year.
Let not the past to dictate the present. Human ingenuity is not an insulation against downright stupidity or sagacity going down the drain.
Prevailing norms binding individuals to society need to be interrogated ruthlessly without any anchorage to past conventions and religions. https://t.co/HrObBjMwV7
Lens of the past is the best way to skew the vision of the future. Designing the centuries ahead can't continue to draw inspiration from it.
Each and every State of India is a nation. They must be granted Sovereignty and set free as Democratic Republics by dissolving Central Govt.
@blog_supplement Each language is a nation very naturally and hence States should be accorded Sovereign status. Religious identity secondary.
Bengali scholars writing books on society, polity, culture & religion by surveying the whole world but omitting Sri Aurobindo is an anomaly.
A brilliant study like "The Idea of Nation and its Future in India" By Shibani Kinkar Chaube (2017) is an example. https://t.co/1Zf9nqhydr
Election and power politics no doubt are crucial but without winning the ideological war through intellectual prowess, no firm gain possible.
RW lacks number and competence but Left leaning authors are guilty of selective amnesia and conspicuous omissions bordering on conspiracy.
@mediacrooks School text books are not the only source of knowledge. Neglecting scholarship will cost Hindutva heavily for 2-3 dacades more.
@kazhugan @hindupost To give the devil his due, some basic facts have been enumerated. How to remedy the situation however remains a mystery.
@kazhugan Gap arising out of interpretation and uneven inferences is normal but here the problem is of deliberate obfuscation or omission.
@kazhugan Deep layers of sedimentation and resulting prejudices keep Indians chained. Respecting elders is often transposed to old knowledge.
@kazhugan Erratic and evasive responses on account of Colonialism and Marxism are a reality in India and can't be glossed over so lightly.
@kazhugan No disputing there. The contributions have been outstanding but glitches equally devastating. For instance https://t.co/40wCsZSLOu
Suspect what is written or what you have been told. Possible, they are layers of lies forming swathes of falsehood peddled across centuries.
Respect the few years you have been on this planet and your first hand experiences. Rejecting meta-narratives is a sound and safer strategy.
Dissect with precision all agenda-driven information. Most books are careful camouflage of inherent methodological error by clever discourse.
Diagnose the causes of conflict and confusion from widest possible data but avoid any wild speculation as solution. https://t.co/8rSoXSYPvX
