    Dear Editors

    ‘The Lives of Sri Aurobindo’ blog had recently posted an article titled “MPs seek Ashram explanation on Heeh’s book” published by the Times of India the link of which is given below.

    http://www.thelivesofsriaurobindo.com/2012/07/mps-seek-ashram-explanation-on-heehss.html

    I have heard that a second article was published as a sequel which covers the position taken by the Ashram in response to the MPs queries? Are you aware of this? If so, can you post it on your blog?

    Regards

    In his post on the website “thelivesofsriaurobindo.com” of 23rd Jan 2013, Baikunth describes the psychological state of most of the present inmates of Sri Aurobindo Ashram with the following:

    “Pay lip service to Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, bow down to their Samadhi and recite your favourite lines from their works on special occasions. (For it is only the special occasions that matter!) Go about leisurely within the security net provided by the Ashram, because that is not only practical but prudent. Get your daily food in time, get your laundry in time, do your daily physical exercises and avail of free medical care. And finally do a little bit of sadhana as and when you feel the rare inner pull!”

    This is very appropriate to describe Sraddhalu Ranade, Raman Reddy, Kittu Reddy, Ranganath Raghavan, R.Y. Deshpande, etc., etc., and other of their clan. If they would feel the inner pull, then their presence in the Ashram would at least be somewhat justified.

    On the website “thelivesofsriaurobindo.com” Govind Nishar who is synonymous with Sraddhalu has said that “The issue over the TLOSA book pales in comparison to the withering of the Ashram under the assiduous neglect of its over-bearing leadership.”
    Maybe it is time for Sraddhalu and his General Editors to change the name of their website to:
    “The Lives of Ashram’s Trustees, Committed to subjective, gossipy, dishonest and disrespectful discussions.”

  4. Raman Raghvan wants SAAT organise its mandate as given by mother. How about the so called managements of SA society where the executive body members are holding position for decades misusing public funds, eating and living in ashram. Let them give up their position Also there is absolutely no transparency in their activities. As per the societies act elections are to be conducted every two years. Has it heppened. Do the society publish its financialdealing every year. they should search themselves before pointin fingers at others..
