"The disappearance of Pakistan is inevitable. It should already have taken place but human ignorance has delayed it."
- The Mother, Sri Aurobindo Ashram
"I’ve seen how. It won’t be done through a battle: the different parts of Pakistan will demand separation. There are five of them. And by separating, they’ll join India – to form a sort of confederation. That’s how it will be done."
-The Mother, Sri Aurobindo Ashram
It took the genius of Aurobindo Ghosh to coalesce ideas that existed in Hindu ethos into devastating tools of mass movements- Swaraj & Swadeshi. Both were coalesced in much maligned Calcutta in the first decade of the twentieth century. Read: https://t.co/r9wLfAI2KU
Finally, Sri Aurobindo's epochal pioneering role gets due acknowledgement. Thanks. Remembering another brave revolutionary https://t.co/laKBUiPHcq
Sri Aurobindo started writing in public just a few months after his return to India in 1893. Vivekananda is generally considered senior to him but in terms of scholarly output, Sri Aurobindo comes first. This may not be known to many people. (Request to readers to verify/confirm)
I studied Gandhi in sufficient details. And I conclude I have poor opinion for Gandhi. Am I the only one apart from Ambedkar?
Aurobindo was vocal while Tagore's silence & sophistication said something more. The real disappointment for me was Rajaji's attitude.
Gandhi is a hype created by the Nehrus - a sort of mutual promotion.
Think! If he was SO great, why was a book he wrote, never part of ANY school syllabus? Obviously because, if it was read by many, Gandhi, and by association, the Nehrus, would lose all 'greatness' status.
No you're not. I read his "Experiments with truth" and came out of it thoroughly shocked, disappointed and disgusted!
It is easy to dismiss an 'analysis' by a third party, but impossible to dismiss what a person writes about himself!
I believed him to be the Safety Valve of British Empire!
He never let the emotions of Indians reach the level of Revolt.
Non-violence was a tool to defuse the anger like todays #SayNoToWar
Gandhi co-opted Hindus & crippled us forever! Stymied patriots, gave teeth to Muslims, gave us the worst possible outcome from the freedom struggle.
Macaulay & Nehru ensured the extinction of Hinduism thru our educational system
Modi, BJP, RSS doing far too little for our revival
For all his faults, Gandhi was anyday better than Ambedkar who was nothing but a British stooge and Hindu dweshi.
Rather than analysing the past, looking at the future is more crucial in which Sri Aurobindo holds a prominent place. It's important therefore to check one's own dear ideological formulation with his vision and dreams and reconfigure them from time to time. #Auroville anniversary
