Vivekananda evangelising Hinduism; Radhakrishnan Christianizing Hinduism

To Be, or Not to Be, Bengali: via @thewire_in
modernity also instills newer forms of prejudice among people. History brings in fresher reasons and instances of prejudice. Partition, for instance, managed to inflict a range of prejudices on the Indian side of Bengal. How many Bengalis on the Indian side remember the exiled nawab from Lucknow, Wajid Ali Shah’s contribution to the style of the Kolkata biryani and the Bengali kurta? How many would acknowledge and appreciate the mix of Sufi Islam, Vaishnavism and Buddhism in the Baul tradition, in Lalon Fokir’s scathing Kabir-esque critique of the caste system? How many would question Vivekananda, like Ashis Nandy did, for transforming his guru, Ramakrishna’s heterogeneous mysticism into a missionary movement, thus evangelising Hinduism?? The denial of history, or uncritical eulogy of cultural figures, prompted by religious and national pride, can only mean a rather hollow way to be Bengali.
Why @sagarikaghose mentions Rammohan Roy, Vivekananda, Tagore, Chaitanya, and Ramakrishna but forgets Sri Aurobindo?

The way @sagarikaghose paints a playful image of religion has echoes in what Sri Aurobindo had jotted down playfully

Unfortunately, a person I admired a lot, and met a few times when I was a child, Radhakrishnan, is partially responsible for the Christianizing of Hinduism and of Indian philosophy. Advaita is not the paradigm of either Hinduism or Indian philosophy as it came much later, at the fag end of when the activity of Indian philosophy with vicious debates among schools and within schools came to an end and since then Indian philosophy has become stagnant as your dogmatic statements clearly indicate.

[What was it that Lacan did if not repeat Freud, making Freud very different even as... rigorous fidelity to Freud?]

[philosophy doesn’t teach you one specific skill–it teaches you how to learn, think critically, choose and flourish]

Subjective impulses, feelings, or experiences can't be put before others for verification. So scientific/philosophical investigation valid.

Pitting Sri Aurobindo against Modi amounts to simplifying though Rejection of complexity is a sign of Fundamentalism

The way Sri Aurobindo defines the character and functions of Varuna or even the qualities of a Brahmin, it's sublime
