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)

Meaning does not rest solely with the original designer

... to a person familiar with motor vehicles, a carburettor represents a means of generating a mixture of air and petrol for ignition in a combustion engine. ... One observer might see it as a doorstop, another as a sculpture and another as an object suitable for grinding food. The observers may also not all be human in which case our carburettor might be interpreted as a habitat, obstacle or potential intruder...
... meaning does not rest solely with the original designer, but with the observer.

@Un_Spin In perspective, India was 80% Indic in 1900. In 1950, it was 74%. Gandhian contribution? @sarkar_swati
@Un_Spin We are doing exactly that through our writings. What is the series on Gandhi about u think? Hindutvadis opposing statement of truth

@Un_Spin We consider Gandhi's betrayal much more significant than the Sultan's as it reversed our recovery. We go by our judgment

@SkandaVeera There are no levels in history. Either you deal in facts, or you do not. There is no middle ground. @sarkar_swati @pynchonlama
@SkandaVeera Our point of departure is that Goel's analysis of Gandhi & Bose misses facts @sarkar_swati@pynchonlama

@SkandaVeera That is the goal of any honest attempt at history. Else it is not history at all. @sarkar_swati@pynchonlama

@SkandaVeera Don't dispute need for strategy & deceit. But they are not facts. @sarkar_swati @pynchonlama
Strategy has no place in scholarship, writings that sacrifice truth in the name of strategy are essentially propaganda.
Retweeted by Shanmukh
@speedmister007 Erm? No, not in my experience. This is Jain interpretation. Name other Ramayans where Lakshmana kills Ravana? @sarkar_swati
Writings that compromise on truth are low level propaganda. Not worth the tag of scholarship
Retweeted by Shanmukh
@pynchonlama No-just space of facts & strategy. We will call it Skandaveera space of universal functions :) @SkandaVeera @sarkar_swati
@SkandaVeera Why don't you define your mathematical space of facts & strategy & suggest metric?@sarkar_swati@pynchonlama
@SkandaVeera Strategy based in deceit, most often. It doesn't exist in same space as facts, sadly. @sarkar_swati@pynchonlama
@SkandaVeera All functions in a space have to satisfy certain common qualities. Truth & propaganda have 0 common @sarkar_swati @pynchonlama
@SkandaVeera Mathematically, your space wouldn't exist since basic properties of truth & propaganda are different @sarkar_swati @pynchonlama
@sarkar_swati In Jain Ramayan, Rama is Jain&so can't kill. Entire war is fought by Lakshmana, IIRC, & Lakshmana kills Ravana @speedmister007
@speedmister007 @maidros78 + except one who went to heaven? Lakshmana goes to hell in Jain Ramayana for killing in a war (just war)

#WorldUnion Day today as declared by The Mother (Third Dream of Sri Aurobindo). Let's all pray and aspire for Unity, Mutuality, and Harmony.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo identify Hitler as the greatest adversary of human civilisation. Men and events in history be judged accordingly.

[his thigh was broken. Nobody knew or knows much about the superhuman work Sri Aurobindo and the Mother have done] http://t.co/I62VzpJF3F
Hindutva supporters admire Hitler, Subhas fans also are oblivious of his grave error but Sri Aurobindo knew the truth http://t.co/I62VzpJF3F
Sri Aurobindo was meeting only The Mother & a handful of desciples, was writing in seclusion but also fighting Hitler http://t.co/I62VzpJF3F
@_YogendraYadav No overnight solutions. Corruption is within everyone; Sri Aurobindo calls for transformation of human nature via Evolution.
An impression is being spread that there is no other corrupt person apart from Lalu. Utter hypocrisy to be under such simplistic delusions.
