The spiritual gift of India to the world has already begun. India's spirituality is entering Europe and America in an ever increasing measure. That movement will grow; amid the disasters of the time more and more eyes are turning towards her with hope and there is even an increasing resort not only to her teachings, but to her psychic and spiritual practice. -- Sri Aurobindo (from the message broadcast on the eve of August 15, 1947)

Mirambika: Use our energy to build something new

Steps taken by SAES to suffocate Mirambika to death:
  1. Clandestine move to residential Ashram premises on 14th April. This move induced panic and some parents fell for the illegal mid-session MIS admission facility offered by SAES.
  2. Reducing Red Group intake to twelve (12).
  3. Delaying Red Group start of session till 1st July. As a result, some Red Group parents moved their children to other schools.
  4. Obtaining DOE ok for using the residential Ashram premises for school purposes. (We will be exposing the concerned DOE official/s in our next post/s.)
  5. Moving children to incomplete & unsafe Matri store premises on 1st July. This move induced more panic and some more parents fell for the illegal mid-session MIS admission facility offered by SAES.
  6. Obtaining DOE ok for using the incomplete & unsafe Matri store premises for school purposes.
  7. Firing of long standing parent volunteers Anita, Namrata & Pramilla.
  8. Making no comparable alternative arrangements to replace the fired parent volunteers Anita, Namrata & Pramilla.
  9. Shutting down Matri store to try and ensure that Mirambika stays confined to incomplete & unsafe Matri store premises.
  10. Planning to move out the kitchen / bakery to try and get fire safety clearance and thus ensure that Mirambika stays confined to incomplete & unsafe Matri store premises.
  11. Diverting the focus from moving Mirambika back to its pre April 14th location to how to adapt the Matri store building for a school.
  12. Threatening to withdraw the Diyas.
  13. Threatening to close the school down.
  14. Submitting an affidavit to AICTE stating that no school exists / shall exist in Mirambika’s pre April 14th location where the proposed AICTE approved engineering college would be established
  15. Contesting the DDA show cause notice against the proposed engineering college by stating that it has the right to establish the same.
  16. Ignoring the fact that neither the DDA show cause notice nor the DDA Chief Legal Adviser’s opinion questions the existence of Mirambika at its pre April 14th location.
  17. Lobbying everywhere possible using all means to defeat the struggle of the concerned Mirambika parents.

Got a feeling that no matter what PJ will not go to the old building. Even if he looses on 30th he will go to Supreme Court and the case will drag on and on. In the meantime many parents will leave for sure. Also one may find one fine morning that some of the diyas are missing like Vaivav Bhaiya, Rejesh Bhaiya. Looks like it is the right moment to concentrate on Plan B. How to have a viable alternative. Negotiate with PJ regarding that. I feel Sulochona Didi was right when she said that all should use our energy to build something new which could be even better.

Crisis in Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, still continues We want and we will Take Mirambika Home Now, no more talks We walked to DOE. We walked to Aicte. We walked to DDA. We discovered and reported all PJ lies. W...
