Free Indian Democracy from the clutches of Congress and RSS

The Marxist and the Nehruvian paradigm is past its prime, and the RSS school of thought is no match for the future.
The question is if "anti-Hinduim" is an established fact of Indian polity, then whether it should be seen as a negative feature or respected.
Being areligious or anti-religious is normal in a Democracy and educated people shouldn't be so bothered about such predilection of citizens.
Those who are engaged in propagation and protection of some religion are entitled to dismal views of others, but Democracy takes precedence.
Majoritarian mentality is an absurdity within a Democracy. Respect for the choice of each person, without any hindrance, should be the norm.
India is a Democracy first and foremost as per its Constitution. Those religious minded should mould their feelings towards fellow citizens.
Educated people must practice Democratic behaviour in public. Denouncing religious attitude of other citizens can't be treated as Democratic.
Those concerned on religious lines must understand that Democracy is only criteria that unites India. Anything else is recipe for disaster.
The other day, a politician remarked that the effect of Castes and Religion in politics is almost non existent in Odisha which is admirable.
Though numerically marginalised, antipathy towards Brahmins among other castes in UP and Bihar runs deep, subverting Hindu cohesion of RSS.
Congress prevented discourse beyond dynasty; RSS considered intellectual probe as subversive. Focus will perforce shift to Sri Aurobindo now.
A whole generation of public intellectuals have been responsible to keep Sri Aurobindo away from the public notice. A criminal conspiracy!
If Sri Aurobindo's philosophy could touch Gebser and Wilber, why intellectuals in India happen to be so insensitive?
Certain contradictions in polity and society are beyond repair and need to be discarded like an old appliance. Sri Aurobindo has the answer.
Savitri Era inspired by the Vedic Evolutionary paradigm unveiled by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is at the forefront of Secular-Liberal march.
RSS got rid of Advani and Modi will pass into oblivion; for Mohan Bhagwat, Gadkari is the right man to lead the nation. Rule Nagpur! rule...
There is no better formula than Democracy as regards human affairs. RSS jettisoned by BJP will be the first step for ushering in Democracy.
Communists joining electoral politics in India with their masters in China is same as BJP feigning Democratic functioning with Nagpur intact.
Indians will have to win Democracy by shedding their weaknesses for lesser ideals like language, religion, region, profession, caste, etc.
Democracy can set the nation free to pursue the path of its true destiny as envisaged by Sri Aurobindo. End of Congress and RSS is a must.
There are some good theoreticians among the RSS supporters and, understandably, their contemplation over the health of Democracy is minimal.
As long as Congress and RSS are active, Indians stand no chance of enjoying the taste of true Democracy and the consequent reign of Liberty.
Neither emotional issues nor economic matters are as grave as the political question. Democracy is in the doldrums and, hence, must be saved.
India is strong enough to deal with any kind of security exigencies. But Indian Democracy is suffering from malnutrition due to Congress-RSS.
Victory in Bihar exposes many shortcomings of Democratic functioning. Young Indians must unite to win true Democracy by banishing Cong, RSS.
Before Independence, Liberty was the first objective. Seven decades later, Democracy is the prime task but RSS and Congress are hindrances.
Hidden agenda of Congress and RSS have prevented economic forces from operating freely as a result of which Indians are trapped in poverty.
Unless India is freed from the clutches of Congress and RSS, its people won't achieve the power of self-determination or economic progress.
Patriotism is akin to any other form of love. If you harbor soft corner for language, faith, or caste, your love for the country is impaired.
Contribute your mite to award every citizen of India his or her full Democratic entitlement unhindered by dynastic designs & remote control.

Savitri Era gains when Congress and RSS fight

Remember the two cats and a monkey story? When Congress and RSS wrestle over Secularism, benefit would accrue to Savitri Era automatically.
BJP, RSS, Modi and Margdarshak Mandal are four different directions. I don't think it's within human capability to manage this contradiction.
Disproportionate emphasis on Hindi is a major factor contributing to corrosion of intellectual vigour in RSS. English can instil liberalism.
Those used to read Hindi newspapers tend to avoid English almost instinctively and, consequently, are deprived of much intellectual stimuli.
Many are comfortable with glorifying Hindi, Sanskrit, and other regional languages, but promoting English and Humanities should be priority.
English is a link language not only in India but also across the globe. Nothing to be apologetic about this great language & unmatched reach.
Language, culture, religion are evolving phenomena like technology or markets. Developing receptivity for what suits the future is prudence.
Cartelisation is the most debilitating disease Markets are suffering from. In a way, regulatory bodies facilitate this by enforcing rules.
Without trying to understand Sanskrit as per Sri Aurobindo's hermeneutics, pedantic conclusions are bound to be flawed
@curbset @Openthemag Consulting Sri Aurobindo what he wrote a century back can solve many of our ideological dilemma
@jothishnair1010 @TRILOKHNATH Please go through latest scientific findings which favour AIT/AMT without any bias.

Follow Sri Aurobindo's Ideal of Human Unity


It's tempting to understand human behaviour or society in biological terms but Sri Aurobindo would invoke One Consciousness underlying all.
Trying to read Sri Aurobindo & understand him is a challenge worth taking and more rewarding than being a foot-soldier of RSS hate campaign. 
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo spoke of Integral Education but were more reliant upon the overpowering action of Evolution for ousting ignorance 
RSS is a thought system which one needs to outgrow. Each person is endowed with that potential barring those wallowing in material benefits. 
Fans used to target Jaitley in a veiled fashion but now many have grown spine to attack Modi, directly. First hero perhaps is @Janamejayan
If sports can make RSS supporters so devastated, then it's unthinkable how they will react to a real war situation and one who talks peace. 
Nitish Kumar as Prime Minister is the only hope for the future. That will end the current Govt sponsored peddling of hatred and intolerance. 
@maidros78 @krishnarjun108 Please refrain from such repartees and debate on something more worthwhile. @chinmaykrvd
@ramolia82 There are books and books but you can start with Vrekhem's Patterns of the Present.…
The Mother emphasizing upon Mind of the Cells and Body understanding far surpasses many semiotic laws like Luhmann's theory of communication 
Equating nationalism with one religion with commensurate hatred for other religions and nations appeals to adolescents who never grow later. 
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have singlehandedly accomplished an intellectual feat what hundreds of thinkers strived in the West through 20thC 
Ideas need to be judged on merit and not as per pet ideologies. Mortgaging intellect to Mythology is a punishment that one inflicts on self. 
RW scribes circumscribing Sri Aurobindo's inconvenient views is as despicable as the Marxist scholars' innocent-seeming act of ignoring him. 
Reading a few pages by Sri Aurobindo enables to see through the game various religions & political ideologies play to perpetuate their reign. 
Nehruvian-Marxist dispensation pushes a warped worldview while RSS keeps clinging to a flawed imagination. Sri Aurobindo is the right answer 
Sri Aurobindo sees each aspect of existence as both complementary and conflicting, searching for its true significance in the final harmony. 
Converting every discourse in India into Hindu-Muslim hue is what RSS endeavours. All right thinking people must avoid falling in that trap. 
No nation or culture owns human intellect, not even religion. This domain is Indra as per the Veda and its symbol is the sky, wide and free. 
Art and culture seeking permission from RSS for creative pursuits is an absurd proposition. Constitution seems to be the source of all evil! 
Without trying to understand Sanskrit as per Sri Aurobindo's hermeneutic pedantic conclusions are bound to be flawed…
Many are ruing about watching Aamir Khan movies, so I feel happy not to have seen any of his films apart from QSQT. How neat? Saving sanity. 
@vhpparekh Sri Aurobindo's writings have been translated into almost all major languages, both Indian and foreign.…
Plurality may be a good political principle but philosophically would amount to confusion. Sri Aurobindo helps to arrive at a secure truth. 
Neither Anekantavada nor Tagore represent unblemished philosophies and search for a true icon ends at Sri Aurobindo.…
Robust arguments undergirding Sri Aurobindo's philosophy turns it without peers. Those insisting on plurality should update their syllabus. 
Ruminating over Sri Aurobindo's words is the best way for self-education and thorough orientation in politically correct or ethically kosher 
Writers, actors, filmmakers, no one is of any value for the RSS members unless he kowtows to cows and subscribes to Mythology and Rituals. 
University Degrees were instituted to distinguish the capable from those who are not. RSS man has started issuing certificates independently 
RSS school of thought has its own set of standards before which neither Indian Constitution nor University Degrees are of much consequence. 
1915: Sri Aurobindo is publishing a monthly magazine called ARYA in which he is contemplating over the future of India as well as the world. View details · 
That BJP & RSS are proceeding on an anti-Evolutionary trajectory is beyond dispute. Writings of Sri Aurobindo provide clarity on this score. View details · 
By following Sri Aurobindo one can serve best the prospect of a luminous future for India as envisioned in his 1947 "Five Dreams" broadcast. View details · 
Sri Aurobindo inaugurated a brilliant future for India as precursor to a splendid destiny for humanity culminating in Life Divine on earth. View details · 
Only The Mother & Sri Aurobindo teach the right path in the domain of philosophy, psychology, education, religion, politics, culture, & art. View details · 
Oppose AAP, BJP, RSS, and Congress so that India moves ahead as envisaged by Sri Aurobindo in his Five Dreams, broadcast on August 14, 1947.

The individual is an abstraction

Democracy, and not ethics, is supreme from a practical angle, given the swathes of imperfection that the society and humanity is embedded in.
Election system, and not Democracy, is at fault for throwing flawed outcomes and the former needs to be fine tuned on a continuous basis.
Democracy, by definition, can't prohibit dynastic or corrupt rulers but it offers enough option to apply correctives or alter the situation.
The individual, though an embodied being, has no independent existence and hence is an abstraction. So, Democracy is a much superior notion.
Lalu standing firm against Hindutva is a hundred times more valuable than the intellectual dishonesty of highly educated BJP fans on Twitter.
@Ish_Apte You are entitled to characterise the way you like. What I want would be clear if you care to go through my TL over a month or so.
@dikgaj I too share the honour of being blocked by him!
@maidros78 @SumukhNaik @sarkar_swati
Not Pakistan, the internal tension of India accentuated by aggressive Hindutva should draw our energy and attention.
Many people are needlessly bothered about war, terror, or crime. The fact is, the State is adequately empowered to handle those exigencies.
Lack of adequate orientation in Arts and Humanities is turning our nation too utilitarian and insensitive. So, right education is essential.
Each political party should impart public education on Enlightenment values and Liberal ethos by discarding Astrology, Mythology, & Rituals.
Enlightenment or Liberalism are not a monopoly of any race or nation. Each individual needs to be trained in those qualities systematically.
If you teach Science in the school and emphasise on Astrology or Mythology at home, then don't expect children to pick up the desired values.
Theories by themselves can't change the society. They are to be taught in the schools and colleges on a continuous basis, to be effective.
@c_ontrarian You very well know about the modalities of Ministry formation. So, it's up to you to be satisfied with your own argument or not.
@c_ontrarian I'm okay if Irani becomes Dy.CM/CM/Dy.PM/PM or any other Minister than heading HRD @mamtan14 @sarkar_swati @madhukishwar
@c_ontrarian Nothing undemocratic about her, but propriety and legitimacy are also imp considerations @mamtan14 @sarkar_swati @madhukishwar
@c_ontrarian Acceptable as long as it's democratic. Propriety is for the PM/CM to evaluate. @mamtan14 @sarkar_swati @madhukishwar
@c_ontrarian @mamtan14 She heading HRD is being questioned, not being a Minister. Any other portfolio is okay. @sarkar_swati @madhukishwar
Twitter interactions indicate that people are indifferent to The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. The primary reason is lack of awareness about them.
Prejudices purveyed by different quarters and reluctance to engage with difficult writings perpetrate 'nothing to gain' from Sri Aurobindo.
@amancool5 Fine. I'm more interested in how educated Indians can read The Mother & Sri Aurobindo's original writings
@maidros78 There can't be a better delineation on the significance of the Mother worship than Sri Aurobindo's words.
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.
Not only cognition or education but also our enjoyment system runs on a set of hermeneutic motifs tied to self-interest and self-protection.
@ajithm69 Empiricism, by definition, scavenges on historical data while thought and philosophy plumb the womb of अनागत to design the future.
@ajithm69 You can modify the list of philosophers you read for better perspective instead of harbouring such an uncritical and low opinion.
70℅ defeating 30℅ should not be the only goal. Popularising a positive political ideology as proposed by Sri Aurobindo must be the priority.
This 53:47 ratio may be misleading but a list of top 50 books offering a right perspective on India would be better.
Any grandstanding on the basis of some imaginary past or a hallucinatory future is dangerous without Sri Aurobindo's Evolutionary dialectic.
When academicians speak, try to be sympathetic to their methodological compulsions before disagreeing with arguments & rejecting inferences.
Academicians getting divided on political lines is unfortunate. Quest for truth & knowledge and methodological rigor must be embraced by all.
All major texts need to be subjected to critical scrutiny and the specious logic of validation by popular faith must be summarily rejected.
Demanding a new historiography is hilarious! The point is to write new books to establish claim and no one is preventing from authoring them.
Academicians must sit together to find ways and means for fighting against human misery and also understand social ills peculiar to India.
Errors are more tolerable than terror. Given a choice between Marxist version of history and Mythology, the former should be preferable.
Nitish Kumar emerging as a consensus candidate to lead India marks a significant step towards sanity, sobriety, and core democratic values.
Nitish Kumar's enormous experience across castes, ideologies, and parties is sure to stand him in good stead in steering the country ahead.

Till now India has not seen a Prime Minister who has really risen from the grassroots on his own. Nitish Kumar may be the first such person.
@Ish_Apte Modi didn't win any mandate when he became the CM in 2001. His rise is a story of manipulation, maneuvering, and devious politics

Excluding Sri Aurobindo not an ideal choice


Dear Amod,
This post brings back the emphasis on intellectual exploration as against personal religious choices. Your interrogations, along with that of Levi and Matthew David Segall, are extremely valuable for those interested in an honest philosophical discourse. In that context, may I add that excluding Sri Aurobindo from your intellectual quest may not be an ideal situation. You may not agree with him but confronting his propositions on an academic level is a necessity. More so, if you are really honest about your urge for finding answers.

I am not trying to convince you but just pointing out a sense of lack which this post doesn’t seem to convey. [TNM55]
