@GreatHeretic I agree. Actually Twitter is the culprit; it offers this platform for instant publishing and I express what I feel to be right
@GreatHeretic Savitri Era Party draws inspiration from Sri Aurobindo but on practical issues we may differ from what he wrote at that point.
@sadhanapr Depends upon what suits us and Bollywood Remix numbers are widely accepted. So public is the sole arbiter in a Democracy. Period.
Shouting on TV screen has become a new paradigm of legitimacy. It's a matter of regret that knowledge, ideology, and arguments face neglect.
I have been writing since 2005, yet a novice without much study would challenge me every now and then. No regard for age or experience. Sad!
Misusing the name of Sri Aurobindo is an oft-repeated charge against me. My simple answer is no one owns Sri Aurobindo so as to do policing.
I was founder member and Chairman of the Durga Puja Samity in our colony but had to exit when felt unwanted due to linguistic discrimination
It was terrible in the first few years to work among predominantly Punjabi colleagues, when I got myself transferred to HO. Language factor!
Having spent half my life in Delhi & Ghaziabad, gender issue of Hindi exposes my being an outsider and my value decreases before any vendor.
In the Hostel, we were students from various States but integration never happened even after four years and parting was marked by conflict.
Delhi is said to be a cosmopolitan city but various temples in the evening would be crowded by State-centric devotees determined by language
Even in supposedly universalistic atmospheres like Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Auroville people tend to flock together around own languages.
A tweet has enough room to make polite comments and express disagreements without being perceived as rude or offending others in the thread.
We are juggling with ideas & some are bound to shock or displease. The best course is to allow it to sink in instead of ticking off offhand.
Twitter is not for propaganda; it's an excellent medium for exchange of ideas. So the learning approach is necessary instead of showing off.
@HeathenIndian @maidros78 I tend to agree but apart from his books, the Ashram etc. are integral to his philosophy and need to be examined.
@HeathenIndian Ashram is the practice part where machines/innovation are welcome. PVNR said in Parliament that he first saw a Computer there
@HeathenIndian This is a better representation of his ideas but then it's difficult to express his complex position within a single tweet.
@HeathenIndian I think he spoke against West's obsession with industrialisation (and neglect of spirituality) but not as evil or undesirable
@HeathenIndian Problem is, his writings have happened at different stages and quotations can mislead. So crucial to know his overall vision.
@HeathenIndian True and that's why I butted in to caution you. The overall vision has to be earned before one loses eyesight. Perseverance!
@HeathenIndian Didn't get you but that doesn't mean that one stops. One can continue to comment with whatever one has understood of his work
@HeathenIndian Perfect. Reason being the Evolution perforce catches hold of an inchoate instrument to advance its agenda and speak the truth
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo's work on Consciousness is unsurpassable; Westerners keep on writing money-spinning books https://t.co/qeTp5i8fX6
Sokal hoax created a storm in 1996. Tampio seems to have set the cat among the pigeons, two decades later. https://t.co/pi11xQgcQq
Democracy is about clarity and transparency but a political party runs on strategy and secrecy. Yet Sunshine truly is the best disinfectant.
Sovereignty to the States is a valid political demand and those who sense promise and potential in this campaign may join Savitri Era Party.

@vakibs No single logic or ideology drives humanity. Let's hope civilisational values find more takers and animal instincts are reined in.
@vakibs They are separate nations after all even after a quarter century, mutual conflicts notwithstanding. The same can happen in India too
@vakibs China is a dictatorship and I don't consider it as an ideal society to follow. Besides, it may suffer the fate of USSR at any moment
@vakibs I agree and therefore propose that India split to enhance its international presence and bargaining power through fifty new nations.
@vakibs Essentially, I'm proposing a replica of EU in India. Autonomy for States can galvanise the overall sentiment of grappling with world
@vakibs USA is a Democracy and has got superior ethos than Russia. Economically it may decline but certain values have very strong roots.
@vakibs African nations have a different history; we needn't compare India with them. Sovereign States will compete & bring economic growth.
@vakibs India has no proper history and what you say is all imagination. Besides, the population size is unprecedented and past doesn't help
@vakibs Democracy is not perfect anywhere and evolving for which the West as a whole has made commendable contributions. India got from them
@vakibs I don't have to live in EU to understand it. It's imperfect, I agree but provides a perfect model as far as our States are concerned
@vakibs India never had Democracy before 1950. But the States which are actually nations have been tragically imprisoned by the Constitution
@vakibs India must free the States so that they achieve their full potential by competing with the world by displaying true Indian Spirit.
@vakibs I never requested you to agree or disagree with me. My tweets are meant for just reading and ruminating over them. cc @HeathenIndian
@HeathenIndian Natural nation may be a Modernity notion; postmodernism has radical pointers.
@SwarnaBharatIN Fine. But please go through the series of justifications I have archived at:
India was never a single nation before the British and language is a more binding factor for a nation than geography as seen in Sri Lanka.
@Hiranyareta Presidencies of British India were administrative divisions; language never mattered. Sri Aurobindo is not averse to Federation
@cpdarshi Sri Aurobindo supported linguistic divisions in Message to Andhra University. https://t.co/0VC28uRz6s @Hiranyareta @HeathenIndian
Population of India has gone up nearly four times since Sri Aurobindo left. Federation of independent States needed. https://t.co/0VC28uRz6s
@GreatHeretic Agree. Language is a stupid but emotive issue that grips people when it comes to the crunch. So preemptive measures is prudent
Demand for reservations is a major disintegrating factor in independent India and it will lose steam when the States turn Sovereign nations.
Bangladesh (বাংলাদেশ) as a sovereign country is okay but West Bengal can only change its name but can't become an independent nation. Sad!
All those who are obsessed with history must change tack and work for the future. Languages are languishing; so the States be made Sovereign
Odia and Telugu stand the chance of being heard in the UN if the respective States are granted independent Republic status. Proud prospects!
Granting independence to the States including Kashmir by abolishing the Central Govt is the only long term solution of the present situation
Instead of being ruled by puppet Prime Ministers from Delhi, the States must take charge of their own fates by turning Sovereign Republics.
Odisha is the first State to be formed on a linguistic basis in 1936 and self-immolation of Sriramulu led to the creation of Andhra Pradesh.
Instead of waiting for further self-immolations or dealing with the then Punjab like inferno, all the States of India be declared Republics.
MMS was a puppet and Modi is a clown. Let not the fate of a staggering 1.3b people be decided by one individual acting under remote control.
The questions of caste & religion are best addressed at the respective States level instead of imposing a uniform national policy from Delhi
India comprises of its States but the phantasmal Centre has been sucking their bloods for the last seventy years which must stop forthwith.
Due to perpetual obsession with the glamorous national discourse, the States have escaped focus and scrutiny. Time to correct this asymmetry
A random sample of tweets shows how people are incessantly talking about Pak or Modi neglecting serious issues or events of their own States
An impression has taken root that what is National has value and talking about States is backward. Sovereignty to States will change that.
Election reforms is in the air but the priority is Constitutional reforms to grant independence to the States and dissolve the Central Govt.
An outsized country like India is responsible for breaking countless homes and uprooting numerous families which even Duronto fails to heal.
Huge geographical and population size of India is antithetical to human happiness and is causing widespread alienation and avoidable stress.
Both Democracy & Development have fallen victim to an outsized India and have become dysfunctional. A small nation is good for human emotion
The Prime Minister as conceived by Indian Constitution is an impossibility. No human being can draw support from the CMs of all the States.
Multiple roles like leading the Govt, heading the party, campaigning for elections, selecting and keeping CMs under tab are hard for anyone.
Due to uniform policies black-money flies out of India. Independent States will mean black-money being retained within the subcontinent.
Words are the best weapon of a civil society. So preserving respective languages or dialects will be the bounden duty of Independent States.
Indian nation is a mirage that we have been chasing for the last seventy years. States as Sovereign countries will provide lasting solution.
Sri Aurobindo, half-a-century before postmodernism arrived, highlighted the role of the local & federal spirit by warning against uniformity
@timesn0w @arungiri @India_Progress Indian nation has proved to be a Leviathan; a resurgence likely in the wake of the States as Republics.
@bnmallick That's where India is heading for with a comical Kejriwal as anarchist catalyst. And then clamour of States will reach crescendo.
Authentic local faiths & wisdom have been subjected to needless hybridisation and consequent trivialisation due to pan-Indian straightjacket
Odishi Sangeeta as a classical genre, for instance, has not been able to get its due due to Central Govt apathy and bureaucratic conspiracy.
Seems strange that those who keep on chanting liberty are against granting freedom to the States which Savitri Era Party is proud to espouse
If the Central Govt's only concern and priority is Pakistan, then the States must be awarded Sovereignty to look after their own interests.
The States of India are undergoing existential predicament due to Dual Govt. system akin to running a three-legged race by unequal partners.
There are nearly 150 countries in the world with less population than Delhi State but it can't become an independent nation. This is absurd.
It seems that the question of all the States of India attaining Sovereign Republic status will be thrashed out on the anvil of Kashmir issue
States of India becoming Independent shouldn't be seen as disintegration but rather rejuvenation via diversification https://t.co/0VC28uRz6s
Eastern coast was home to leading Intern'l ports doing roaring business which grant of independence to concerned States can easily revive.
Top nations of the world are suffering from megalomania. Ideal population figure for a nation is 6 crore (60m) after which it should split.
Among the planets of the Solar system the Earth is special perhaps because of rightsizing. Similarly, countries with huge populations split.
We hear so much about Russia, but population-wise India can be divided into ten nations of Russia's size. Twenty of France, UK, or Italy's.
I'm keying in on Micromax CanvasTab P650 and it has stayed with me since 2013 because of its right size. Odisha too has right size as nation
Linguistic nations will infuse pride and competitive spirit among its citizens so that the neglected human resources yield heavy dividends.
Present nations are accidents of history who must undergo a phase of rationalisation. Mankind will benefit if China, India, US, etc. split.
Many are expressing their disappointment over Govt atrophy. Dispensing with the Central Govt & the States as Republics is enduring solution.
All large countries are a threat to the world peace and hence should split into multiple new nations of 5-6 crore (50-60m) population size.
Top fifteen countries with population above 9 crore (90m) are immediate candidates for splitting into multiple nations of reasonable size.
China, India, US, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Russia, Mexico, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Ethiopia, Egypt must split.
All problems of India can be traced to its abnormal population size. Creation of forty to fifty new linguistic nations is the best solution.
Imperialist instincts are out of date in the modern world and nations must follow the example of corporations in rightsizing for efficiency.
Both India and US should split to engender around one hundred new Democratic nations which will immensely vivify the international situation
Inclusion of one hundred new nations in UN belonging to diverse cultures is sure to add dynamism and creativity apart from a sense of parity
Let's hope this is the last US presidential election after which its States are awarded sovereign status for ushering in federal world union
There can be no bigger irony than RSS operating its dirty tricks department in the name of Vivekananda. It's clueless about Sri Aurobindo.
@a_r_j_u_n It's a general observation on the ferment India has witnessed since 2010 via Ramdev, Anna Hazare, etc aided by that organisation.
Modi supporters are terribly on the backfoot; a sorry spectacle indeed! More agonising is how these wellread folks were so confident of him!
We have consistently maintained that AAP, BJP, Congress, & the Left need to be opposed. But educated people fail to notice any value in that
One of the very practical tips by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is to learn to depend more on the power of truth than of lies in all situations
@India_Progress Many negative/comical comments but no one has endorsed any Spark. Life is no laughing matter & a serious quest is called for
Western philosophy is not easy to master. It takes long years but one reaches a dead end leading to disquiet. Sri Aurobindo is final answer.
Consciousness, which Sri Aurobindo foregrounds, is bridging philosophy and psychology but rigid modalities followed can never be relied upon
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo never relied upon the laboratory procedures or group survey method. One's own body and consciousness is enough.
@vhpparekh Both were mortals and a substantial details of their lives is already documented. Probing one question can bring multiple rewards
It would be wrong to assume Sri Aurobindo has all the solutions. He leads philosophical inquiry to its logical end and shows Integral Yoga.
Sri Aurobindo had already reached Pondicherry on April 4, 1910 when William James died on August 26, 1910. SA continues from where WJ left.
Sri Aurobindo foresaw a World Union as a free association of free nations. India must facilitate this by giving birth to fifty new nations.
Sri Aurobindo's words deserve deep engagement and action but the way the Hindutva sympathisers trivialise him fills one with disappointment.
BJP won Election by selling muscular nationalism but is now wresting with pragmatism. Following Sri Aurobindo would have imparted honesty.
War mongering crowd is enthusiastically bandying Sri Aurobindo about as endorsing violence but he wrote "The Doctrine of Passive Resistance"
1940: Sri Aurobindo unilaterally extending his hand of support to the British in fighting against Hitler is a turning point in human history
Followers of Sri Aurobindo must support abolition of Central Govt and Sovereignty for States https://t.co/OkaWh4f6wQ
@satyanveshan For support for success of World Union as delineated in his Third Dream through wider and multi-pronged international presence
If our planet is the only one in the whole Universe to house human beings, then the nations must undergo reorganisation to secure happiness.
Happiness is the birthright of every human being and those who rule must be forced to shed megalomania and create nations of optimal size.
Optimal size of nations can instil a heightened sense of belongingness & emotional attachment among people accentuated by linguistic bonding
Each State turning a full fledged independent nation with UN membership is not against Indian nationalism but rather enhances it multifold.
Disregarding neighboring States is common at present but when turned Independent, economic necessity would force deeper mutual engagement.
Granting sovereignty to the States by India will put enormous pressure on China and US for similar respect for people's self-determination.
China remains a colossal abnormality in the modern world and it must undergo fission to create small organic nations with 50-60m population.
@Sheks65 I'm proposing a EU like federation as a prelude to World Union. So the spirit of Indian nationalism or urge for unity don't vanish.
@Sheks65 The basis on which Telangana parted from Andhra is not an isolated event. Similar urge for self-determination is bound to erupt.
Constitution of India is so designed that the country can not get a capable, honest, and informed person winning mandate as Prime Minister.
It's time to throw away this absurdity called the Central Govt and free the States as Sovereign Republics to take on the world on their own.
In hindsight, it appears that it would have been certainly better had India acceded to the Khalistan demand of Jagjit Singh Chauhan in 1980.
Many in the country are sympathetic toward independence of Kashmir but such piecemeal approach is no longer viable. All the States at one go
Although, it's politically incorrect to say so, there is some intrinsic truth behind Castes and Sri Aurobindo confirms this unlike Ambedkar.
Consensus on this can lead to understanding the Indian society better and an effort can be made to create homelands for various caste groups
Hindutva ideology suffers from a utopian modernist grandnarrative and megalomania thus closing its mind to what Sri Aurobindo is pointing at
Ideological distance is so vast that even a perceptive commentator like @arvindneela dares not to probe deeper into Sri Aurobindo's oeuvre.
Theory has been a victim of Marxists and postmodernism has not been able to take advantage of Sri Aurobindo. Hindutva commits same mistake.
However, those believe in Sri Aurobindo, both intellectually as well as in religious mode, have reason to dismiss the Marxists and Hindutva.
Sri Aurobindo's espousal of difference warrants enduring political mechanisms on the ground which can't be left to the Marxists or Hindutva.
Just like Dalit discrimination is claimed to be social and not merely economic Sri Aurobindo prioritises growth of consciousness over wealth
With this idea in mind Sri Aurobindo had set up an Ashram to enable those who want to pursue consciousness to live in a politically safe hub
Similar Ashrams have mushroomed but they are light-years away from Sri Aurobindo's ideal; challenge however is to cover the society at large
The goal of Development or Governance, though ambitious, prove to be wanting by Sri Aurobindo's yardstick, thus necessitating suitable steps
Since Sri Aurobindo is not satisfied with the few residing in Ashram and says All life is Yoga, it's a call for the whole society to adopt.
Necessary political organisations are hence to be put in place to facilitate pursuit of consciousness and ensuring wherewithal and security.
Many followers of Sri Aurobindo who live in comfortable conditions loathe politics but the foregoing would convince anyone of their naivety.
Coming back to the contentious suggestion of some connection between castes and pursuit of consciousness, not much help from Sri Aurobindo.
But his delineation on demands of yoga & spirituality is definitely close to the qualities he ascribes to distinguish the Brahmin from rest.
That said Sri Aurobindo is emphatic about nobility or Dharma of each caste and holds them to be equally valuable in pursuit of consciousness
Be that as it may the question of political organisation remains & modernity demands that society be rationally reconfigured like shop floor
Democracy should be able to push such rational reorganization but for the vested interests of Marxists, Congressmen, & Hindutva enthusiasts.

@SREEHARI2001 @BirdsEyeWeiv Why? Tamil Nadu already has a Kannada born Brahmin to lord over an anti-Brahmin party. So, where is the problem?
So far Modi Govt is nothing different than UPA-III on the economic front and at this rate India has to wait for 22nd century for Development
Renaming Race Course Road where the PM resides is farcical. Entire Constitution of India needs relook whether Indians need a Prime Minister.
When made sovereign, Indian States have better scope of negotiating with neighbouring countries for their Development and cultural exchange.
At present, States are prisoners of a pan-Indian narrative. Therefore Odisha can't directly deal with Indonesia or Tamil Nadu with Sri Lanka
If Algeria or Argentina with similar population as Odisha are independent countries, then why Odisha should not be allowed to rule itself?
@AmbarishSharmaO Nothing against a State or a Caste in particular. I have highlighted prevailing paradoxes & absurdities Constitution ensues
China's dictatorial regime can handle a large population but the multi-party system of Democracy in India has proved to be an utter fiasco.
What can be more ridiculous and tragic than the 20 crore people of UP being at the mercy of a Central Govt. for funds and policy decisions?
India as a single nation has failed to deliver and citizens are suffering from deprivation. So, the States must be endowed with Sovereignty.
The Constitution of India as a British legacy has turned a trap which the present generation must jettison with individual States as nation.
Celebrities of local languages and cultures won't feel inferiority complex for not making it to the National scene if States are Sovereign.
Savitri Era Party demands "Sovereign Nation" status for the States as the Central Govt. has become an impediment in the path of Development.
Democracy conceived at the time of Independence of India has become untenable and infructuous due to population explosion over the decades.
Linguistic nationalism has great potential to spur Development in the States with renewed vigour which the Central Govt. is unable to tap.
Fifty new Indian nations interacting with the rest of the world directly has tremendous possibilities for economic and cultural resurgence.
If role of the Central Govt is reduced to dole out MGNREGA kind of alms, then it has no reason to exist. States can do as Sovereign nations.
If Indian culture and philosophy is propagated by fifty new nations in diverse fashion then it would be a victory for Sri Aurobindo's vision
Balkanisation has been understood as a negative phenomenon but for present day India it can usher in an era of growth and multiplier effect.
Geopolitical strategy and scenario thinking brigade have benefitted by Central Govt; States have languished with people poor and unemployed.
Central Govt. is responsible for dispensing monochromatic education lacking in creativity and wonder. States as nations can push competition
The overpowering idea of India has so enervated and enfeebled its citizens that people are shuddering at the hint of States going Sovereign!
@a_r_j_u_n That would again be a compromise; deferring the solution for another five to six decades without any substantial gain. So surgery
Right now the most vigorous linguistic nationalism is sweeping Karnataka. Give it Independence and see the kind of metamorphosis it engenders
When the States become Sovereign Nations, their respective demographies would dictate fresh policies on Reservation and affirmative action.
Isn't it illogical that the Govt. of West Bengal can't build a port at a site of its own choice? Why would a Central Govt. throw a spanner?
Central institutions have enjoyed enormous power and advantage which would go for the welfare of States, thus electrifying Market dynamics.
Languages are not going to die easily and as long as they are vibrant, fissiparous tendencies in India will persist. Proactive steps prudent
If Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives, and Mauritius are independent nations, then why Odisha, Vidarbha, or Bundelkhand be prevented from turning one.
Instead of reacting to only eruption of violence, a modern Democracy should be awake to people's aspirations and urge for self-determination
Many local cultures and knowledge systems have been steamrolled by the Indian nation which will see new opportunities for efflorescence.
If given independence at least 20 Indian States will occupy space within 50 most populous countries to enjoy commensurate bargaining power
Systemic changes are a peacetime activity and shouldn't happen in a firefighting mode. Transition of States to Sovereignty warrant maturity.
Many would be aghast at how can we talk of independence of States without Churchill or Nehru. But yes, this decision has to be taken by us.
So far, the Central Govt has performed its role as a guardian. Now the time has come to set the States free so that they fly with own wings.
Addition of fifty new Indian Nations is sure to alter balance of power in UN and other international fora transforming North-South discourse
One thing that needs to percolate into people's mind is that there is no essential virtue in having a large nation with gigantic population.
Technology and digitalisation is transferring many known roles of Central Govt. to private multinationals facilitating nationhood of States.
Languages hide immense treasure and the States will take adequate care of them when they become Sovereign Republics. https://t.co/exRA8HqgnI
When the most timid person comes out as a lion to denounce Modi you know that everything is as per RSS script. DMs fly to create right noise
UP is the most crucial challenge and every single move is aligned in that direction. Events seem random but hard to rule out RSS machination
Most BJP supporters & commentators pretend as if RSS doesn't exist or sits silently during periods of controversy. No one discusses its role
Sloth in Modi Govt. is due to enormous population of India. Devolving Sovereignty to States is the only option and the most required reform.
Once all the States turn Republics, regional co-operation in true sense of the term will ensue without expectation of any Delhi intervening.
Dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 has helped everyone and it's surprising why the States of India are waiting for so long to emulate.
Giant nations are dangers to world peace and hence India must split into 40-50 independent countries and disable nuclear war possibilities.
There are 200 member countries of United Nations with less population than Odisha and so there is no reason why it should be under Delhi.
Modi raising Balochistan in his Independence day speech is likely to snowball into balkanisation of India leaving him Gorbachev and last PM.
Savitri Era Party is first to demand granting independence to the States of India and those sympathetic must express solidarity. #FreeStates
@himanshujmohan You're right but the history of urge for self-determination, like love, shows that it defies logic and possible consequences
@himanshujmohan Besides, you are already a client of Twitter and Google cyber-empires and they are not exactly under Indian Sovereignty.
@himanshujmohan Just gave an example; your definition of State should change. Real power lies with Artificial Intelligence and Google on top
While the lowest population among the States of India is around 1m, there are 70-80 countries in the world with less population than that.
Demanding independence can spread like wildfire with terrible consequences. So let's get onto the task preemptively for peaceful transition.
It's a common feeling that accidents happen to others. Clamour for independence by the States may not be easy to suppress, like in the past.
That a large section of people are poor, uneducated, and unemployed shows Delhi's widespread disconnect with and indifference to citizens.
When the States become independent, a lot of people for whom Pak bashing is staple would be jobless. Fertile web of Diplomacy will dissolve.
Democracy entails involvement of people; when population grows it becomes less participatory in that proportion. So 1947 can't dictate 2017.
Gandhi and Nehru were chosen by Evolution, no matter what their imperfections. Those nitpicking expose their own vileness and insensitivity.
@ArmchairPseph I "feel" Gold Standard is as impractical as Sanskrit as National language. So no point arguing @AgentSaffron @UttaraMimamsaka
@ArmchairPseph No disputing; I was thinking of future and its relevance/efficiency unless all the nations agree to give fresh lease of life.
@ArmchairPseph Yes, I'm not aware. So, what next? Are these nations opting for Gold Standard? Can they convince all other nations?
@ArmchairPseph Let's suppose USA declines by 2020. Will India play ball with China? Seems doubtful; whoever is at top will be suspected.
@Zen_twt @MunimB @vajrayudha11 English may be good for jobs but the States of India must become Sovereign Nations to save respective tounges
Europe comprises of nations on linguistic basis since ages but in India Colonial legacy has prevented the States from acquiring nationhood.
India is the root cause of discord in the Sub-continent. If the Central Govt. is abolished, States can live in peace with their neighbours.
India was never a single entity and the Frankenstein's monster that the British have forged by force needs to be dispensed with forthwith.
@AmbarishSharmaO No Centre; States are Sovereign nations with UN membership and option of being under regional federation/coalition. Simple.
@AmbarishSharmaO Hope you read the whole set of tweets on the subject. I'm building my arguments on population size. https://t.co/OkaWh4f6wQ
@AmbarishSharmaO You are free to paint me in any brush but I am proposing a Constitutional route to abdicate the Constitution. No agitation!
@AmbarishSharmaO From the handle you can notice that it's a party and it's only a couple of days back that I started this brand new campaign
@AmbarishSharmaO If you support abolition of Central Govt, I will be glad to have you as a co-worker. We can discuss the details via gmail.
Ultimate Federation is the UN. So, each State has direct access to global politics with tremendous potential. Bargaining power multiplies.
The Central Govt. is an impediment in the path of peace and prosperity of Indians as it guzzles enormous resources and enfeebles the States.
The Central Govt. is a replica of Colonial rulers which sucks the blood of the States and squanders them on foreign tours and arms race.
Modi's reference to the Baloch freedom struggle in his Independence Day speech has turned prophetic. Bihar and Bundelkhand too want freedom.
Bhojpuri is one of the most vibrant languages in India (& Internet:-) ) today. So, why can't there be an independent country called Bhojpur?
The Dominion of India has become an instrument of demonic domination over the States and people, thus turning own raison d'être infructuous.
Not a day passes without a Chief Minister criticising the Centre on some pretext. Time to jettison the Central Govt. lock, stock, and barrel
When the States become independent, no one in Kerala will bother about goings on in Kashmir or Kolkata. What a great relief for the people!
High decibel rhetoric on terror and war is on but States are starving of resources. Central Govt is enjoying; school children have no shoes!
People of India have been feeding a white elephant called the Central Govt all these years. Dual Govt system is a curse for a poor country.
Each State of India must become a Sovereign country. No one can deny this right or stop such an eventuality. Time to follow the USSR example
There is no justification for the Central Govt to exist. Each State can manage its affair well as a Sovereign Republic. Overhaul necessary.
War mongering by Hindutva enthusiasts has proved that their brand of muscular nationalism is nothing but religious hatred & baying for blood
Lofty ideals set forth in the Indian Constitution should not fall victim to Hindutva obscurantism. So snap the advantage of a large nation.
Chasing a grand-narrative, Indian Constitution has strangulated legitimate aspirations of people for self-determination on linguistic lines.
Movie theatres have given way to Multiplexes. Republic of India must make way for the States turning Sovereign nations to enter global arena
India as a nation has suffered as guys belonging to different States in a team don't see eye to eye. Forced nationalism is counterproductive
The mystery of a language is still a secret. Let the people of India promote their own languages by becoming separate Independent countries.
Dialects of Hindi have suffered under its weight. Regions with distinct dialects must claim nationhood and huge States to split accordingly.
The Central Govt & its bureaucratic network across States has been able to throttle regional aspirations and urge for autonomy. Dissolve it
Empty phrases like Unity in Diversity and National Integration have cheated the Indians of our generation of genuine linguistic fraternity.
The Hindi, Hindu, and Hindustan agenda of RSS must be foiled by abolishing the Central Govt and granting Sovereignty to the States of India.
Odisha must recall its ancient civilisation and overthrow the tentacles of Central Govt. over it. Each and every State of India is a Nation.
National scene and the round-the-clock discourse around it has proved total unproductive and hegemonic to eclipse the States out of focus.
While Caste or Religious discrimination draws attention, linguistic discrimination is pushed under the carpet. So, States must turn Nations.
Brain drain and irrational migration has sapped the States which need to be rejuvenated with Sovereign status and allied global transactions
Central Govt is a cesspool of lobby & liaison for deriving unfair advantage by pleasing one or two persons which multiple Nations will curb.
The names of 17 soldiers killed in Kashmir is known but the secret beneficiaries of the Rafale deal will never be known. Say halt to Centre.
People residing in the vicinity of Delhi have greatly benefitted from Central Govt leaving the inhabitants of far flung States high and dry.
@yugaparivartan Let Modi be the last PM of India and get Nobel Prize for granting Sovereign status to the States by dissolving the Centre.
Pak-centric commentary will stop when the States of India become independent and deal with their respective neighbours and distant friends.

Despite grappling with diverse cultures prevailing in the country for almost a century, it's a miracle that RSS has retained monochromatism.
No matter how much one imagines India as one country, local languages make you feel as an alien even in different regions within U.P. State.
Optimal size should receive due consideration not only for Corporates but also for towns, cities, States and country for gaining efficiency.
While the liberal spirit behind Copyright verdict is laudable repercussions will be devastating if extended to marriages and religious sites
Agitations for separate state of Uttarakhand or Telangana and the violence involved is irrelevant today. Kashmir will look like that one day
Imperialist sentiments insisting on some intrinsic virtues in having a country as large as possible is nothing but a humongous superstition.
It needs to be mulled whether everyone should emulate "Giocante, son of commander Louis de Casabianca who remained at his post and perished"
Like Negotiable Instruments are time barred, human memory is erased to make life happy but historians and politicians stir forgotten wounds.
With population as yardstick India can be divided into four U.S. like nations of optimal size who would be free to be part of one Federation
India is suffering just like a huge joint family and modern technology and infrastructure have failed to achieve integration as one nation.
Democracy in a country of such huge population is unprecedented in history and so anomalous. Say of people in Govt is negligible and a sham.
Thinking about Pakistan or Kashmir in abstract terms is a trap. Military solution is a chimera; human emotion and suffering should be focus.
Arunabha Bagchi has a fine piece but by not distinguishing Sri Aurobindo from Vivekananda he commits simplification. https://t.co/PGf4RI1fyW

JNU is culprit of criminal neglect of Sri Aurobindo on "how Asians think about international affairs and strategy" https://t.co/Xzl2ucZLpR
Congress is determined to grab a bigger slice of the pie of power in UP than Bihar and SP is not its favourite. So it's advantage Mayawati
Idea of nation must evolve from geographical boundaries to cultural (including religious) cohesiveness and shifting choices of human beings.
Time is ripe for a leap forward towards Asian Federation allowing broad corridors in the borders as common ground for cultural exchanges.
International encounter and human destiny can't be left in the hands of Military and restrictions on trade and culture need to be slackened.
Kashmir and Hyderabad are two mistakes of 1947-48 the consequences of which refuse to stop bothering after 70 years. Time for drastic steps.
The present citizens of India should take a common sense view of Kashmir and resolve it without being entangled by its complicated history.
Territory should stop being the defining element of nationalism and Soft Power and Goodwill should propel towards Peace and Harmony, instead
Understandable that those in Govt can't proceed openly & hence a Citizens' movement must build up for immediate resolution of Kashmir issue.
Bloodshed for Uttarakhand & Telangana was unnecessary. Indians must be sympathetic enough to resolve the Kashmir issue with ink across table
Instead of looking upon Kashmir as a loss or defeat, the possibility of it turning as the fulcrum of Asian unity and melting pot is bright.
Kashmir as it stands today has a single solution. Govt, the ruling coalition, their supporters and public in general need be honest to admit
Govt has displayed commendable restraint in spite of jingoist cacophony by irresponsible supporters, perennially driven by religious hatred.
There is no reason why a Constituent Assembly of 1946 vintage should be the arbiter of fate of 1.3b Indians in 2016. Let States be set free.
People of each region must have the right of self determination sans any coercion or undue influence from any central or outside authority.
Last decade has proved that the Prime Minister is operating under the direct control of extraneous entities. Safe to overthrow Constitution.
@Sheks65 It's for the people to decide which comes first. Master narrative of an imaginary nation shouldn't deprive school children of shoes
After enjoying the bare beauty of Astaranga beach, noticed school children returning home in bare feet https://t.co/oxHndIaj1W @OdiaCulture
@ArmchairPseph While your sympathetic portrayal of Kharavela sounds nice, sparse details about him makes any reasonable assessment suspect.
Review of the Constitution is no longer in the priority list of any party. Savitri Era Party takes this agenda forward to rectify past error
India's population has multiplied almost fourfold since Independence and hence it has become unmanageable as a single country and Democracy.
The system of Dual Govt, multiple parties, and bureaucrats from other States has played havoc due to which Development has taken a back seat
If Algeria or Argentina with similar population as Odisha are independent countries, then why Odisha should not be allowed to rule itself?
Why would a Prime Minister from Gujarat and a Chief Minister who can't speak Odia be sympathetic to the ancient civilisation that Odisha is?
Democracy in India has become anomalous due to vast & diverse population and nowhere in the world such an disastrous experiment is going on.
Parliamentary Democracy works efficiently in smaller countries and India should give birth to around 50 such new entities including Kashmir.
The way the democratically elected Govt of Delhi is humiliated proves that such Saas-Bahu serial is futile and the Central Govt is redundant
Democracy is tantamount to a certain distance between the Military & civilians but RSS strategy is to keep people charged with war rhetoric.
Just like someone's toothache troubles all in a huge joint family, a minor event in one corner of India harassing 1.3b citizens is absurd.
Linguistic diversity in India provides a perfect template for multiple nationhoods and there is no scope for any Central Govt to be imposed.
Despite its ancient history to insist that Odisha is not a nation is bizzare and symptomatic of some megalomania masquerading as nationalism
If there are more than one hundred countries in the world with less population than Odisha, then no reason why a Gujarati should rule them.
@AmbarishSharmaO The PM. The CM is also half-Odia and half-Punjabi and can't communicate to people in Odia though in office since 2000. Alas
Big States need split to 3-5 crore population level and all the States, including Kashmir, should be set free as independent countries.
Though an ancient civilisation, Odisha has been a victim of the totalitarian traits of Indian Constitution. School children have no shoes!
Like all other States and regions of India, Odisha too wants liberation from the yokes of an insensitive Central Govt and march as a nation.
@AmbarishSharmaO Yes, one side of argument. You are free to provide a counter narrative. Let there be a national debate over whole situation
Terrorist attack in Kashmir and Maoist attack in Odisha are two sides of the same coin. Self-determination by people can't be suppressed.
Traditionally, Ram is not worshipped in Odisha but by building new Ram temples, RSS wants to induct north-Indian ethos and throttle culture.
Kashmir is not a Pakistan issue nor has Military solution. Self-determination for Kashmir and Odisha should be weighed on the same footing.
School children who are fortunate to have shoes should join a campaign to provide shoes to those don't have, so that they walk with dignity.

Savitri Era: Communists are blind to Sri Aurobindo's overture https://t.co/DGUOpcW4dy
Not a happy news on #HindiDivas but Sri Aurobindo Karmdhara has notified suspension of its print version (1972-2016) https://t.co/8UCEsCOumf
Wide ranging changes in customs and lifestyle in the wake of Industrial Revolution is on and India is no exception. #SriAurobindo #Evolution
Those pleading for tradition & rituals are deaf to the footfall of treasures that the future can harvest as part of Evolution. #SriAurobindo
@SwarajyaMag By reading Sri Aurobindo, Sanjeev Sanyal and Jayant Sinha can vastly improve upon their Ontological perception & prescription
Enjoying off from work due to religious holidays shouldn't be addictive nor nurture inertia. Expecting change and overhaul must be a habit.
Doing justice to salary has become so entrenched that commitment to facts and right knowledge has taken a beating. So vigilance is necessary
Savitri Era and not Buddhism is the right route for Dalits to escape to mainstream and the sooner their leadership realises this the better.
BSP fiasco has left Dalits confused and fragmented. Proof why a robust philosophy like Sri Aurobindo's is essential for movements as fuel.
Philosophers the world over have been striving for long to explain the functioning of the world without the concept of God in various guises
The Life Divine by Sri Aurobindo demolishes the combined efforts of atheists, rationalists, and Marxists, devastatingly, to reestablish God.
Instead of whining against Brahmins and Hindutva day in and day out, Dalits should embrace the liberal and global ideology of Sri Aurobindo.
Dalits have a sizable votebank but no leader. Instead of allowing unity to fritter away & advantage squandered, should accept Sri Aurobindo.
New found bonhomie between Dalits and Marxists animating student politics looks promising. Sri Aurobindo offers mature and enduring solution
Dalits believe that Ambedkar gave infallible theory. Same mistake as Arya Samaj vis-à-vis Dayananda. Need to study Sri Aurobindo critically.
Dalits & Tribals have served as crucial factors against the homogenising propensity of Hindutva. Sri Aurobindo can lend ideological bulwark.
BSP and Reservations have contributed to further Ghettoisation of Dalits leading to discrimination & deprivation. Sri Aurobindo can correct.
Conflating Dalits and minorities is an electoral compulsion but lacks ideological affinity or advantage. Dalits must discover Sri Aurobindo.
Discarding Hinduism to bolster Buddhism is a classic example of jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. Sri Aurobindo offers safe home.
@Ram_Guha @aadityahbti Thanks for mentioning Sri Aurobindo. Time to atone for excluding from Makers of Modern India by critical reassessment
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo refuse instant solutions. Grappling with current issues and burning problems have to be attempted to turn it Yoga
Aim of Integral Yoga is life, writes Dr. K.N. Varma, and endeavouring to fill life's imperfections with Divine aspiration to transform them.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have made the middlemen unemployed and empowered each individual to establish direct relation with the Evolution.
Instead of personal salvation as goal & resorting to selfish modalities towards it, The Mother & Sri Aurobindo ask surrendering to Evolution
Surrender is normally associated with bhakti and considered as a matter of heart but Sri Aurobindo is brutally honest to extend it to mind.
Despite being ignored for a century Sri Aurobindo has not lost an iota of relevance. That shows how powerful revolutions are silent & steady
@AmbedkarCaravan @ROUNDTABLEIND @khalidanisansa1 Real third way for Dalits to overcome is to embrace the path of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.
Exclusive concentration is how Sri Aurobindo explains the uniqueness of an individual and hence commonality among humans is something rare.
Whether science is good or bad is a task within the domain of science itself. Same is the case with philosophy and test of intellectuality.
How far away people are from science can be imagined from the widespread ignorance of right nutritional value of foods they cook and consume
@DasBolshevik Sidelining top knowledge source can't be considered a virtue. Ignoring Sri Aurobindo's futuristic theory is such a catastrophe
@DasBolshevik Superficial discords are symptomatic of deeper secrets for understanding which there is no better authority than Sri Aurobindo
AAP, BJP, SP, BSP, Congress, and the Communists are making Sri Aurobindo relevant every passing day. Even the U.S. Hillary vs. Trump contest
Mythology and science can't go together. Emotional clinging to the past and unverified narratives should be replaced ruthlessly by raw data.
Finding something interesting or holding any cause close to the heart is not altogether innocent or harmless if probed from Freudian angles.
The Mother warns against music that titillates and Sri Aurobindo says Ananda is an altogether different zone than our ordinary concept of it
Atheists, Dalits, Marxists, and Hindutva votaries need to be healed of Ontological flaw by injecting Sri Aurobindo's Evolutionary dialectic.
Priorities in life and perspectives on issues are severely skewed due to gender divide which Integral Yoga has an ambitious aim of bridging.
The same Marxists who fight for freeing copyright for dissemination of knowledge would not touch Sri Aurobindo's writings with a barge pole.
Hard to find a single University teacher in either side of the ideological isle who openly sides with Sri Aurobindo or recommends his works.
In the absence of incentives and remunerations, dedicated study of Sri Aurobindo's thought has dried and the current dispensation seems deaf
Theoretical relevance of Sri Aurobindo in wide ranging fields like philosophy, psychology, science, education, literature, politics etc huge
Marxist imperialism and arbitrariness in education domain must be squarely overthrown so that the reign of Sri Aurobindo is given a free run
Undergraduates must be rescued from the sanitised syllabi thrust by the Marxists and exposed to the Evolutionary ontology of Sri Aurobindo.
Just like Congress is no more the natural party to rule, Marxist Profs must be shown the door so that the mischief they've perpetrated stops
@a_r_j_u_n I agree with your sentiments but not with the grand narrative you love to espouse that is clouded by Mythology & retrograde ethos
@a_r_j_u_n I'd request you to think for yourself instead of depending upon and falsely glorifying other scholars and obsession with history.
@a_r_j_u_n I know that your encounter with Sri Aurobindo stops at respect and obviously I am not a fan of the Aurobindo of your conception.
@a_r_j_u_n Pigeonholing someone as secular is an old Hindutva game and serves no purpose. Sri Aurobindo is smart enough to defy false label
@a_r_j_u_n These kind of studies including that of Prof @blog_supplement are excellent for intellectual development but puerile as ideology.
@a_r_j_u_n Hope you disabuse yourself of the notion that I have not read anything during my last sixty years. Am amused with your innocence!
Marxist-atheists, Dalit-Buddhists, Hindutva-obscurantists, and Congress juvenility are to be fought with the single weapon of Sri Aurobindo
When you have a Govt of your choice, it's illogical to advise it on day to day happenings and each and every issue bypassing its own wisdom.
Hindutva occupying centrestage has one advantage in that traditional rituals are being subjected to negotiation with modernity and progress.
Feminism is also coming to the fore in questioning Hindutva anachronisms and an internal fermentation leading to reforms is not far behind.
Music is often lauded for lyrics and in that sense a few genres in India are overrated. Discretion is the better part of valour not to name.

Savitri Era: Liberal ideals are of Vedic origin https://t.co/AvdpcsC5va #SriAurobindo
@MRVChennai To his credit, his brand of popular history has a host of RW acolytes now, adept at applying slant with impunity and finesse.
If truth is at a discount in an empirical domain like History, then expecting any firm proposition in the world of Metaphysics is farfetched
Sri Aurobindo has written on a prominent role for India in shaping human future but that is more about chasing Vedic knowledge & perfection.
The Mother's hand in defining Sri Aurobindo's concept of man & his destiny stemming from a Judeo-Vedic symbiosis is unprecedented & epochal.
With The Mother & Sri Aurobindo's work on Cellular transformation conforming to Vedic imperative & Lurianic Kabbalah emerges a new religion.
Just because Indian diversity is susceptible to vote bank politics exploiting it won't continue for ever. Sri Aurobindo wants rise of reason
Since reason alone can't assure an enduring motivation towards right path, faith and loyalty need to be drawn from religion, in combination.
Inertia and ignorance force people to fall back on tradition and status quo but The Mother & Sri Aurobindo offer a safe home sans confusion.
The rigour and sophistication with which The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have examined the human condition vis-à-vis religion is verily peerless.
Rather than as inheritance, following a religion should be assessed on the basis of merits and demerits just as supporting a political party
The legacy of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo spanning over more than a century has a large reservoir of knowledge and devotion across the globe.
More and more people with genuine quest & scientific perspective are recognising the futuristic potentials of Sri Aurobindo's pronouncements
Although many fine minds are held captive by Hindutva, gradual efflorescence of curiosity and knowledge in them can't be held back for long.
Problem with Hindutva is that no one has authority or is responsible as to which text or philosophy is right. Sri Aurobindo charts out path.
Dalit antipathy towards Vedic knowledge as unveiled by Sri Aurobindo is pushing them towards intolerance & fanaticism scuttling emancipation
Unfortunate that no one tells Dalits how new Cognitive psychology and Genetic engineering findings coincide with Sri Aurobindo's prophecies.
A single tweet is enough to convince any one about Sri Aurobindo but to wake up those who are pretending to sleep needs constant hammering.
Both Right and Left have found it safe to ignore Sri Aurobindo but no more. Savitri Erans have enough ammunitions to disrupt their strategy.
Irreconcilable fissures exist among RW and Hindutva proponents. Sri Aurobindo comes handy to exacerbate the rupture when controversies erupt
Hindutva is yet to conquer India, convincingly. While so-called Secular forces claim credit, followers of Sri Aurobindo must snatch victory.
The Mother warns that "the past seeks to endure" and Sri Aurobindo exhorts to be worthy of "the noons of the future." So no room for laxity.
Communists were pioneers in the field of experimental and avant garde films and literature. We find them blind to Sri Aurobindo's overture.
Characterisation of India's past has been problematic with Hegel, Marx, & Max Weber. Indians no better except Sri Aurobindo's deft handling.
Political players leveraging own factions for winning games of Democracy is understandable. Sri Aurobindo foresees play of widening ambits.
The fact that neither the Hindu majority nor the Bahujan samaj were able to seize electoral victory is proof of Evolutionary forces at work.
Vedic light, freedom, & perfection are unseen goals of humanity which The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have underscored in their copious writings.
Prosperity and pomp have become the new criteria of credibility and respectability for modern day ashrams instead of treasures of knowledge.
Pilgrims thronging festivals and rituals exposes the utter neglect of education and employment the majority of Hindu population suffers from
Both Hindutva and the Communists want the masses to be in ignorance so that they can be manipulated well. Sri Aurobindo votes for knowledge.
Ideologies followed by AAP, BJP, Congress, & the Left makes them adversaries of the Nation if one is acquainted with Sri Aurobindo's vision.
@ramolia82 From a long-term perspective neither Pak nor Islam need be seen as a concern. They are minor irritants in comparison to Hindutva.
Sri Aurobindo had no confidence in piecemeal solutions. Tinkering with systemic flaws may be contingent but latching on to Evolution needed.
@Duttvijay @manishpant22 It's necessary to look beyond activism and discover true wisdom unveiled by Sri Aurobindo. https://t.co/11HzVokiqg

Monday, September 12, 2016
Not many on Twitter are adequately conversant with Sri Aurobindo's writings and in that sense I consider myself fortunate and a bit special.
Yoga and spiritual aspects of Sri Aurobindo's teaching are well-known and receive Institutional patronage. I popularise his political views.
Both Western and Indian Philosophy have been lukewarm towards Sri Aurobindo and his reception in the non-academic circle too is rudimentary.
Studies have been attempted on political philosophy of Sri Aurobindo but present rise of Modi and RSS lend an excellent context and urgency.
While different political parties are scratching their heads and scrambling to grapple with the Hindutva menace, the clue is firmly with me.
The philosophy of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have been explained by competent disciples with due fidelity but political facet lacking focus.
Many followers of Sri Aurobindo are averse to politics and some are wedded to Hindutva. That leaves my task unique and the track, untrodden.
It amuses me how intellectuals in India don't realise what I see so naturally. Then the question of funding emerges which dictates ideology.
Democracy has deified numbers but "Talent is rare" (Satyajit Ray) and "Equality, Quality and Quantity: The Elusive Triangle..." (J.P. Naik).
Thus despite lacking popular reception so far, the intervention of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo a century back is sure to illumine the future.
Gandhi, Nehru, and Ambedkar did fight the Hindutva menace in their own way in the firefighting mode with some help from Marxist academicians
Opposing majoritarian Hindutva on rationalist and humanist planks succeeded but within thirty years of Independence they could taste power.
Hindutva however clung to all kinds of backdoor methods and piggyback riding to capture power until Modi happened with complex ramifications
Despite its avowed antipathy towards Communism, Hindutva's engagement with Socialism, Lohia, Ambedkar, SVD, and JP is an interesting story.
Besides, at one point or the other, both CPI and RSS have scuttled Freedom struggle but endorsed Indira Gandhi, JP movement, and Anna Hazare
Some prefer to restrict Hindutva to Savarkar's pamphlet or Golwalkar's "Bunch of Thoughts" but nuances accrued from Deendayal to Sudheendra.
RSS seems to understand the diversity obtaining in India and has avoided pushing Hindu agenda mindlessly fearing damage to the social fabric
Many people like K.R. Malkani, Sikander Bakht, & Dattopant Thengadi have been instrumental in weaning Hindutva away from fundamentalist diet
Die hard supporters crave for a hardliner leader but BJP and RSS have so far been level headed due to compulsion of seeking votes from all.
Apart from harking back to Mythology, Rituals, and obscurantism, Hindutva was a manageable proposition but Reliance-Modi factor adds danger.
From "Ramdev launches political party named 'Bharat Swabhiman' (March 17, 2010) to Swaraj Abhiyan, India has seen manifold confusion.
If Modi were merely a Reliance project with RSS as midwife it would have been tolerable but involvement of an International syndicate exists
Thus, as far as being hand in glove with International operators is concerned, AAP, BJP, Congress, and Communists are birds of same feather.
With Modi at the helm, no one is sure how much he helps the cause of Hindutva or expands its core constituency. RSS didn't bargain for such.
Overall, the attempt is to avoid looking at Hindutva through a monochromatic lens and indicate RSS-Modi contradictions & fatal consequences.
That brings us to the Hindu ecosystem with its elaborate Mythology and intricate Philosophy which even baffled Hegel https://t.co/X53HtEeywK
Not only a large mass of Indians follows the religious tradition but also a new section of elite takes pride in Hindu culture and philosophy
Flip-flop by BJP, RSS, or Modi notwithstanding, a loyal section of Hindu population will always be the silent vote bank and funds provider.
Faith being the cementing factor, no critical stance can disturb such an ecosystem but a theoretical antidote stands the chance of invading.
The role of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo springs up at this precise moment which had been waiting in the wings for almost a whole century now.
Point is, the Gandhian, Nehruvian, and Marxist ammunitions that have been deployed to keep Hindutva at bay have turned blunt and ineffective
Further the popularity Congress once enjoyed has been squandered away by successive leaders due to faulty policies and ambivalence on issues
A firm indication that in the absence of robust theoretical bulwark, mere enthusiasm is not enough to resist a behemoth like Hindutva ethos.
Surely, Development, employment, and other economic issues are far more important than matters of religion as the Leftists keep on harping.
Sri Aurobindo on the other hand hints at the primacy of religion which has proved to be the Achilles' heel of the whole Communist ecosystem.
Sri Aurobindo can be surmised to be sharing the Marxist anathema for organised religion but he doesn't throw the baby out with the bathwater
Ambedkar's painstaking studies on religion similarly examined sociological aspects and their political consequences bypassing spiritual core
Marxists have tried to apply corrective by appropriating Gandhi, Tagore, and Vivekananda to an extent but siding with Islam has warped track
Though difficult to grasp Sri Aurobindo's thought from a couple of books, it's profitable to glean from "Our Ideal" https://t.co/KmKX5X8GZL
While provincialism is a norm with most political parties in India, Sri Aurobindo posits a form of Nationalism that embraces whole humanity.
In advocating a federal World Govt, Sri Aurobindo is echoing what thinkers from Kant to BC Pal envisioned as inevitable Evolutionary outcome
Although Sri Aurobindo has dwelt upon some external characteristics differentiating the East from West, he is firm about future human unity.
@desaisantosh Sri Aurobindo reiterates eternal values date back to Shruti and have been available to the seers in their vivid inevitability.
@Mint_Opinion @livemint Sri Aurobindo teaches to respect Evolution and value its direction despite its opposing elements achieving success.
