Are we still not blind?

Remind Arbindo Ghosh when you read TOI poll:
Given a choice, most Indians would like to be born as Indians again. In an exclusive poll by The Times of India, nearly 90% of people in five metros — Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Hyderabad — opted to be Indians in a hypothetical next birth. The poll was conducted among those in the 18-35 age groups, and their overwhelming preference for India was across religious and gender divides.

“The wish to be reborn we have in abundance, there is no deficiency there. How many attempts have been made, how many movements have been begun, in religion, in society, in politics! But the same fate has overtaken or is preparing to overtake them all. They flourish for a moment…Our beginnings are mighty, but they have neither sequel nor fruit” Arbindo
Is the present Congress not represent every word as said by Arbindo Ghosh?

Sri Aurobindo returned to India on February 6, 1893, at the age of twenty
For the present, the eight-year-old Indian National Congress, whose members were mostly drawn from the Anglicized upper classes of society, had full faith in British fair-mindedness and the “providential character” of British rule in India, and year after year swore its “unswerving allegiance to the British crown”

Remember what PM Manmohan said in Oxford Uniersity. He appreciated there British Rule in India. Congress followed Pope to oppose forcefully conversion bill.

Sri Aurobindo was twenty-one when he wrote a series of nine articles, “New Lamps for Old”:

Is present Congress different than 120 years back?
August 21, “Our actual enemy is not any force exterior to ourselves, but our own crying weaknesses, our cowardice, our selfishness, our hypocrisy, our purblind sentimentalism.” Arbindo

Manmohan surrendered before Musharraf at Havana. Secular government fights terrorism to crush Hindus, singing Gandhigiri song, allow entrance LeT in Army, Air force and CRPF. Now it is stepping religious head counting and reservation. ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ slogal banned by Congress Govt of J & K, Now its Congress CM and CPI(M) wants pardon to Afzal.

Are we still not blind as Arbindo said in the past?
August 28, “I say, of the Congress, then, this—that its aims are mistaken—in brief, that we are at present the blind led, if not by the blind, at any rate by the one-eyed….The Mother is not in our hearts, in our brains, in our arms.” Arbindo
Recent example of this is fatwas on vandemataram and absence of MM Sonia on Sept 7.
