If Blaming Centre For Everything Wrong With Indian Science Is Scientific Temper, Then I’m Guilty Of Not Having It @vraman16 https://t.co/28TbjSu2Bn via @swarajyamag
Whether it is panchagavya or Ayurgenomics, scientific investigation into these traditional knowledge systems is very essential. If Indian scientists do not do it then, when transnational firms who are constantly knowledge mining these systems, patent these very knowledge systems https://t.co/5PzcphjxXl
Don't make roads in Uttarakhand. Don't develop tourism circuits there. Don't make dams. Keep its people poor. Why? So that a crank "Right Winger" living in a metro or a foreign country gets to feel the real spirituality when he deigns to visit it.

The Mahābhārata is a celebration of such stories. What a variety of stories occur in the epic and what different tastes they kindle in our hearts!

Those 3 brothers of Agni are later revealed as Bhupati, Bhuvanapati & Bhutanampati
भूप॑तये॒ स्वाहा॒ भुव॑नपतये॒ स्वाहा॑ भू॒तानाम्पत॑ये॒ स्वाहा ।
This leitmotif of Agni running away from doing His duty is seen in several places of shruti..
The verse अग्निर्देवेभ्यो निलायत । occurs in a lot of place, with each one set amidst an interesting situation with an equally interesting outcome!
"Cinema has infused mediocrity into every area of public life where rhetoric is an end in itself, slogans are intellectualism and Facebook memes are research.
No wonder then that the Millennial Tamil thinks kitsch is cool and complexity is a conspiracy."
Brilliant-not just Tamil movies;include all Indian languages and Ekta kapoors soaps and all TV serials.Lowest-how much lower will they go?
The abusive responses of minions of @Suriya_offl below indicate that his fans are just third rate rowdies with very little comprehension. Such a third rate actor with goonda fans getting limelight is a blot on TN.
Although the notice may seem racist at first glance, much of this is true. Most Indians grow up with zero civic sense in India & find it difficult to change overnight just because one has crossed borders. https://t.co/Q8lT05sc5d
In general the H-crowd at large is interested in certain figures, and is not that keen to dig deeper to learn more about other equally important figures
E.g. Sankaracharya is ofcourse a pan-Indian icon (though his origins too are in deep south)
But then other Advaita figures are less well known
E.g. Madhusudana Saraswati from Bengal / Varanasi (16th cen) - few people have heard of him
So it is not a geographic thing. It's about selective valorization of certain names, and ignorance of others
Very recently through @blog_supplement I learnt about this vibrant intellectual culture in the city of Navadwip - home to so many giants - Raghunatha Shiromani, Vasudeva Sarvabhouma, Chaitanya
For the most part there is a lack of interest to learn
Even Chaitanya had to flee to Odisha. How can one expect them to go on reconversion spree on mass scale in a land ruled by Jihadis when preserving their own identity was a concern?
Leave reconversion spree, they had to do extensive polemic vs fellow H to defend right of Ms whom they had already made Krishna devotee to chant Harinama.
That aphorism of Sri Aurobindo on not fighting under a general who hasn’t lost a war is applicable here..failure teaches a leader to seek counsel from all sources...he does not keep opinions that are unquestionable...
Don't miss! Agastya Gurukulam & Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Indian Culture present a residential camp starting July 28, 2019 where the Gurus come together for the Unmesa programme to teach young minds from around the world. Find the details here.
There is no such thing as historical enabling in Science and technology. Great research Institutes and centres of excellence can crumble within years, even months. Ideas are the product of a human mind not sanctioned buildings.
Science doesn't live in the past. It isn't History.
"Golconde" is a private residence for the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry. This is the first modernist building in India, built in 1942.
I came to #sriaurobindo' jis influence in the year 1990s ; after reading his writings on the Veda and Gita ; As I was a devotee of Lord Krishna 's Bhagwad gita since my childhood ; I found
#sriaurobindo ' s integral yoga system so perfect method ; even you may study Six Darshans of sanatan dharam; Sri Aurobindo's Words are more revealing than even studying upanishad or gita or any other Text as we name #shastras #SundayThoughts
Indian #yoga is ancient system who helps us to find out our True Nature Hidden in our deep recesses.... Initial study of sri aurobindo's Works are very typical; but once mind is bent upon his works ; one will not find any parallel Master, Yogi or any Path who makes one truly Universal Personality .... #integralYoga

Tribute to Hindi cinema's legendary singer #Mukesh on his 96th birth anniversary today. Mukesh left a great impact on the Hindi film music world that he's still remembered for his melodious and melancholic voice.
What are your favorite songs of his?

Overpopulation has made India ungovernable and its Democracy dysfunctional. Once the States get Sovereignty, they will solve local problems on their own; no need for Delhi megalomania dictating, nor national outlook is warranted. #MakeIndiaHistory by opting for #BharataFederation
Bande Mataram was written with Bengal in mind and it played a stellar role during Partition of Bengal (1905) movement. All the gains of Bengal Renaissance during the previous 100 years were harnessed to sow the seed of Independence of India. Bengal must become a Sovereign nation.
So called national culture is corrupting and destroying local traditions and languages. Present Odisha symbolising the great Kalinga Empire must get Sovereignty to safeguard its rich heritage. #MakeIndiaHistory by opting for #BharataFederation as per #FiveDreams of Sri Aurobindo. https://t.co/u6lo2W7Tgq
Thanks for excellent presentation. A trivia: First Odia ICS Officer, Nilamani Senapati belongs to the Garedi Panchana village. He and Bhingarpur Choudhury family are within our circle of relatives. Our caste is Mastan (perhaps Mahasthan) Brahmins who don't perform puja (Bhumihar)
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have provided the occasion and opportunity to forget about all past icons and affinities. Their contribution in black and white surpass all colourful imaginations of human civilisation by light years. But recognising them constitutes a challenging task.
