It is heartening to note that the ideological Ramalgam pursued by RSS-BJP so far is being subjected to critical scrutiny by their own young and astute sympathizers. In Secularism is Important to Modern India, for instance, Harsh Gupta @hguptapolicy inter alia avers, “The political philosophy of Hindutva is morally wrong, detrimental to the Indian national interest, detrimental to Hinduism, and politically counter-productive.”

2h A journalist is born after a 9-months MassCom course but Twitter transforms him/her at par with the Managing Editor of a national newspaper.
3h A relative helps in hospital but extracts his pound of flesh later is not uncommon. RSS follows this formula for enrolment & indoctrination.
3h Evolution is Vedic journey from 3 Masters of Suspicion: Marx, Nietzsche, & Freud to Twin Masters of Realisation: The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.
3h Teaching fishing or giving away fish? - The answer is well known, yet an enduring curiosity and respect for Theory is still to precipitate.
4h Foucault termed school as prison, but it has no substitute. BJP must go by the College instead of Coaching centre approach of cracking exam.
4h 14 out of 107 I'm following have black DPs. Roughly the same percentage of votes BJP polled in UP Assembly elections. Hindu rate of growth!

5h Anna-Baba-RSS synergy, though ubiquitous and redoubtable, is highly vulnerable vis-à-vis modernity. They prefer sly action and avoid debate.
5h 1907 saw Congress splitting on fierce ideological ground engendering, subsequently, a plethora of splintered hues of Left and Right streams.
5h All well meaning and right thinking people of my beloved country! Don't despair. Bharata Bhagya Bidhata Sri Aurobindo & The Mother are there
6h Contrary to popular notion, Democracy doesn't respect the crowd; it transfers their power to an assembly of parliamentarians & their wisdom.
6h Celebrating rustic austerity and anti-intellectualism is no panacea for a resurgent
India. Fighting anachronism and
obscurantism is a must.
6h The shadowy assistance of RSS to Anna-Baba theatre is more targeted at the sub-texts they perpetuated than the overt demand of corruption.
6h The Mother & Sri Aurobindo dared to create a prototype of ideal collective living 100 years ago by formulating a robust theoretical buttress
6h Anna-Baba Nukkad-Natak Mandli is a cruel carricature & sad anti-thesis of all that is noble in Indian culture & wisdom. Shibboleths galore.
6h The adolescent infatuation with any hero is more about camouflaging self-insecurity and being co-opted into the network of an exalted tribe.
7h Carnivals have their use in mass participation and democratisation, but politically contrived ones suffer from partisanship & intransigence.
7h One shudders when Ram Jethmalani is sighted with Anna-Baba bandwagon. How can there be any consonance between a courtroom and street chaos?
7h Waiting for Modot Army has brought immense aberrations to national discourse thus subverting its own cause as well as the democratic ethos.

Tweets 4h - Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty Freedom, Nationalism, Secularism etc. have to be redefined and reinvented in the light of Sri Aurobindo's writings for
India to survive.
8h Anna-Baba fiasco proved how dishonest assurances flounder. NDA & UPA are engaged in shadow boxing by marshalling technicalities as tactics.
9h SMS limit and Petrol price should be synchronised with the Sensex movement. That would save frequent official notifications.
10h Everyone justifies his action or opinion; that's a matter of great hope for Justice & humanity. Synchronising the means remains a challenge.

11h Political parties lack moral anchor and are expediency-driven. Evolutionary ideals must replace the current functioning, says Sri Aurobindo.
11h Freedom means nothing if bereft of fair-play and fellow-feeling. The Mother's symbol speaks of Courage, Goodness, Generosity, and Equality.
12h Today's black DPs; tomorrow's MPs. Good opportunity for regimenting cadre & fastening loyalty belts. Whoever unfurled flag of Free Thought!
13h Just 140 characters and one turns an accuser, the investigator, whole jury, and the judge at one go to pronounce the sentence with finality.
13h Kahin Pe Nigahen Kahin Pe Nishana - is a perfect description of all political discourse in a Democracy as Elections are always on the radar.
13h When finger felt itself is moon, Naveen got rid of lovely Pyari. Street or media may reflect public opinion but can't substitute Parliament.
13h "A furore a day" is what Parliament may turn out, yet harbouring a Gungi Gudia or a Mauni Mohan Singh; not to forget Chambal's Bandit Queen.
14h Kejriwal has no clue how to accumulate fund for fighting elections. RSS has 1001 front and back organisations for round the year collection.
14h Freedom struggle had many unreasonable strands & so is the case with JP, VP, RJB as well as Anna-Baba movements. Parliamentarism is supreme.
14h Whosoever exaggerates is doing a disservice to the nation. Freedom can never mean license and, like regulators, editors have always existed.
15h Watergate involved secret election fund and that's the issue which needs to be thrashed out. Funding of even civil society agitations hazy.
16h Fast-unto-death died recently, wolf of Emergency might meet similar fate. Proportion is the spice of life, herd move is devoid of direction.
19h The Secret of the Veda is also the secret of Sri Aurobindo. But no need to read any endorsement of awful anachronisms running for centuries.
20h - @acorn Besides, there is no reason why the views of the Govt. and the opposition should converge especially when a vast majority is silent. View conversation
20h You need a group of three or four to tag and endorse each other, mutually commend the comments and thus appear to come out victor on Twitter.
22 Aug Having burnt our fingers in Heehs imbroglio, we are wary of absolute freedom of speech. Verbal terrorism is a menace & must not be fostered.

18h @ShivaKap That's what I'm hinting at. One must understand the roots of the disease in order to heal it. Sri Aurobindo has written in depth. View conversation
18h @ShivaKap Education, health, & money, in fact, are domains of 3 different castes: Brahmin, Kshatriya, & Vaishya, in a broad religious sense. View conversation
18h @ShivaKap One persons flaunts, and the other says it's wrong. There is need to reconcile both views. So, first one has to understand basics. View conversation
18h @ShivaKap Likewise, castes have deeper significance corresponding to various limbs of body. So they are essential for any organic society. View conversation
18h @ShivaKap Appropriate sentiments, but they have their root in religion which is inbuilt. Quest for perfection/divine is religion ecosystem. View conversation

future. FIVE DREAMS Manifesto broadcast on August 14, 1947 is assured rallying
point. 14h Let Sri Aurobindo's editorials in Bande
Mataram, Karmayogin, Dharma, and Arya a century ago guide this nation and not
Ramdev's shenanigans. 14h - Himself a bundle of confusion, Ramdev's
quixotic adventure can be a cruel and costly experiment in deepening of
democracy in the country. 14h - Ramdev is entitled to leveraging his
popularity for any agitational venture but consequences as regards public
welfare are sure to backfire. 18m - Know-alls need not be ashamed of not to
have read Sri Aurobindo. To be a child before him & proceed with an

4h If tablets & smart phones are evolving then human body too must be changing albeit in a slow pace. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo unlid mystery.
5h - Perennial Hindutva confines itself within a geographical-mythological boundary; looks upon the Other as adversary. Sri Aruobindo breaks open

5 Aug Prejudice must not deprive us of perfection. Sri Aurobindo's scholarship is unsurpassable & let's spot the treasure and taste it's delight.
5 Aug Honest persons become corrupt over a period of time blaming system. Sri Aurobindo helps reverse the process through yoga of transformation.
5 Aug Sri Aurobindo is the only anchor around whom a dependable collective can take shape that abhors corruption. Only he offers a robust theory.
5 Aug 2014 is also "Arya" Centenary that gave us The Life Divine, The Synthesis of Yoga etc. All need read these instead of idly waiting for Modot

5 Aug Disregarding trivia and respecting knowledge should be constant pursuit. Reciting a couple of lines from Savitri can be immensely ennobling.
5 Aug Even Shankaracharya erred in interpreting the Ishopanishad, says Sri Aurobindo. Sayana too was found wanting by him in deciphering the Vedas
5 Aug Sri Aurobindo is the most authentic voice of Indian wisdom and it's the duty of the present generation to hearken to him and prevent pigmies
5 Aug Reading 40 volumes of Sri Aurobindo's works should be everyone's target to commemorate his 140th Birthday on #August15. 140 characters over.
5 Aug - @doctoratlarge @RisingIndiawins Sri Aurobindo is sure remedy for such scepticism. But one must be willing to read even with critical faculty. View conversation
5 Aug The Secret of the Veda by Sri Aurobindo may not have earned the status of essential reading by Hindutva votaries and experts but it should.
4 Aug - @swaraj_india A better way of looking at it would be to study whether a set-up can at all be called democratic when women head it & rule men. View conversation
4 Aug Political issues are not stand alone phenomena. Apart from the sociological diagnosis probing from the evolutionary angle is also essential.
4 Aug This reveals how right theory & ideology is crucial for any journey as a minor deviation in direction might lead to being left high and dry.

3 Aug That's how we are different from all other parties and carve out a niche which is the most plausible route our polity will logically take.
3 Aug No party in India is in good shape. Team Anna should first devise a suitable framework for successful running of a party & electing leaders.
3 Aug Opacity of policy has been the bane of political scene in India and alliances have worsened it. Team Anna should specify their all leanings.
3 Aug Forming a political party and contesting elections are not exactly the same thing. Team Anna should first formulate definite stand on issues.
3 Aug The name of Sri Aurobindo may not inspire assured electoral dividends at the moment but we are confident of garnering a large constituency.
3 Aug No excitement or curiosity in India today for the new & innovative. Waiting for Modot is a safe game that is indulged in by most lazy minds.
3 Aug - Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty No political party understands Sri Aurobindo's vision. His words are a century old but breath fresh air to jaded rhetoric blowing currently.
3 Aug The Vedic imperative is to reclaim cosmic light & knowledge. Sri Aurobindo unravels great mystery of self-empowerment sans self-abnegation.
3 Aug Faith & freedom are crucial for individual fulfilment. Skewed secularism that encourages atheism, anarchy & anomie requires to be thwarted.
3 Aug Mere morality & austerity is a poor sibling of enabling spirituality. Not negation & denial but by dynamic grappling with wealth is the key.
3 Aug A wholesome psychological framework grounded in evolution is what Sri Aurobindo offers that acts as an effective antidote against corruption
3 Aug Emancipating spirituality of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo as encapsulated in the famous phrase "All Life is Yoga" is a true anchor for ethics.
3 Aug Narrow nationalism & shallow socialism is sure recipe for pushing the country backwards by a Century. Let's follow Sri Aurobindo's 5 DREAMS.
3 Aug Sri Aurobindo is far more relevant today than the compounded confusion perpetrated by Anna, Ramdev, Sri Sri, Agnivesh, and Subramanian Swamy.
3 Aug Anna movement is only 16 months old and absolutely unprecedented. Still people never tire of comparing it with past or predicting its future.
2 Aug Instead of the secular trap, Anna's proposed party should follow the global vision of Sri Aurobindo as outlined in the FIVE DREAMS Manifesto
2 Aug Thus, politics, like economics, is incentive driven but at times owing to sublimation, ethics or charisma substitute gross or the pecuniary.
2 Aug Just like power of exercising violence is transferred to the State in Democracy, certain level of corruption is condoned in case of Monarchy

1 Aug Why such low awareness about Sri Aurobindo? On the one hand there is bias and resistance, but a bigger factor that pervades is ignorance.
31 Jul It will be August an hour hence,
That saw the advent of the sun upon earth.
In 1872 on 15th to be precise,
Sri Aurobindo chose to take birth.
31 Jul The war against evil or the Vedic stealers of light,
Is a long-drawn one and not of overnight,
Discernment & perseverance need be held tight.
31 Jul For evicting those who backstab Mother India,
Three souls with steely resolve fight on empty stomach,
In a consciousness cleansing operation.
31 Jul - So, who in
India today can give shape to the
Dreams of Sri Aurobindo? The present scenario is as disappointing as today's
grid collapse. But 31 Jul - #August15 is a sure
reminder that thirst for light & immortality is of Vedic vintage that this
land has carried forward through thick & thin.
31 Jul From Vico & Herder through Kant's Perpetual Peace, ideal of Human Unity has travelled long though bruised by 2 World Wars. Now
31 Jul It's not about being a Superpower or winning Olympics medals. Destiny of
India is to march forward towards
the Supramental evolution of man.
31 Jul An attitudinal overhaul and an altogether different Jantar Mantar is called for instead of the present puny approach. Sri Aurobindo arms us.
31 Jul No effort towards unity will go in vain, promise The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. Between them they signify the meeting of the East and the West.
31 Jul His words have power, the power of transformation of consciousness thus pushing the unifying urge of evolution forward. Sri Aurobindo leads.
31 Jul Race, religion, language, nationality, and gender: all enter the melting pot when Human Unity is contemplated. Wanted huge proactive spirit.
31 Jul World
says Sri Aurobindo, is an evolutionary inevitability. The nitty gritty,
however, are the responsibility of present generation.
31 Jul This in peacetime and being treated as a picnic but such eventualities as part of war can be disastrous. Sri Aurobindo stressed Human Unity.
31 Jul Feeling of National integration through power failure that ranks as a world record poses a survival question mark before human civilisation.
31 Jul In this hour of darkness may the country remember the sage voice of Sri Aurobindo, the sun of the nation and on whose birthday came freedom.
31 Jul If it's demanding accountability at apex level Team Anna must also prove its accountability to the public by conforming to democratic means.
31 Jul Transparency impresses the most. Team Anna should divulge its organisational hierarchy and get rid of the present obscure decision making.
31 Jul Policy neatness can stop nitpicking by others and that warrants comprehensive thinking and not just cherry picking. Get down to brass tacks.
31 Jul Till now Team Anna has avoided honest intellectual interrogation of its track record leading to confusion on alliance & ideology. So urgent.
31 Jul Savitri Era Party requests Team Anna to give up fasting & tackle patently political issues by political means without insisting on shortcuts
31 Jul Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo valorizes the body as much as the mind and psychic being. Enervating the body by fasting is therefore wrong.
31 Jul Time people are sensitized about Sri Aurobindo's critique of Gandhian practices like fasting. He even doubted its efficacy for spirituality.
30 Jul The political course Savitri Era Party drew in 2007 is plain & simple. Huge space for new national party with genuine ideological framework.
30 Jul Embracing Sri Aurobindo and his 5 Dreams can indisputably make Arvind Kejriwal invincible within the current political chaos of the country.
30 Jul Kejriwal receiving flak from expected quarters proves he is on right track. Only he should be aware about the significance of his namesake.
30 Jul The Left & the Right, both have been consistently disregarding the genius of Sri Aurobindo, the sun of modern
15, his birthday
30 Jul Thanks to Anna Hazare's Jantar Mantar show, I and my wife happen to watch the TV together at times these days. Social engineering at work.
29 Jul Our opposition to Anna Hazare movement is unequivocal just as Hitler was identified early as the face of evil by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.
28 Jul Those who are stagnating at Vivekananda's level must explore Sri Aurobindo's writings. It's like a leap from a lake to an oceanic vastness. 28 Jul A general background is earned from the works of Vivekananda. Sri Aurobindo lifts one to Himalayan heights through his synthetic philosophy. 28 Jul Vivekananda passed away in 1902 and Sri Aurobindo in 1950. Sri Aurobindo's insights during the eventful, intervening 48 years are valuable.
28 Jul Most from my TL consistently write about politics but they are not prepared to join politics. Thus, it's all sound and fury to push careers.
