Texas vs. Texas

The real truth of the matter is that the SCIY idealogues are a bunch of people who believe that nothing is sacred (isn't that also the American way of life and as exemplified by the crass remarks of RCarlson!) and that the white man knows best. And that Sri Aurobindo is reverential as long as he pleases the intellectual fantasies and political views of these cantakerous people. The SCIY might have participation of both westerners (mostly american) and the "subcontinent"/Indians but the question is how many of those of write approvingly and in a shamefully deferential way after every one of Carlson's venomous attacks are not American or European (Debashish is an exception but then he appears to have been infected by American academic discourses that have erased his common sense and any intuition that he might otherwise have had).

Also, questions arise as to RCarlson's own attitudes towards Indians. Taken together, the SCIY site is clearly leery of Indians and wishes to be aggressive in a typical non-Indian way. i.e. Shame and bring to "justice" all opponents because we are intellectuals and HAVE to be right! What a joke! Posted by Anonymous to Savitri Era Open Forum at 4:44 AM, December 29, 2008

One more thing - SCIY's attitudes can also be guaged by the exchange (http://www.sciy.org/blog/_archives/2008/11/25/3995193.html#comments) between RCarlson and DBannerjee in a video post of a Madhubala song/dance sequence. At a time when the Mumbai attacks had just happened these "intellectuals" banter frivolously about jihadis and their heavens as though it was some laughing matter. I guess for these two people who did not lose anyone to the Jihadi bullets it was just as good a time as any to celebrate their political views! Just giving an example of SCIY's insensitivity and true nature. Posted by Anonymous to Savitri Era Open Forum at 5:14 AM, December 29, 2008 mdavpn-8.mdacc.tmc.edu (The University Of Texas M.d.

  1. I am not sure why this post has Texas versus Texas for its the title, except for the obvious anti-intellectual nature of the post and poster
    and the attempt to incite discord there is not too much to brag about even by Texas standards.
    The insults made the poster makes dont even measure up to the level of Arkansas hillbilly.

    Moreover, the post cited from SCIY are taken our of context in the extreme and in fact one can fine several post considering the grave happenings in Mumbai, both with links to reporting and historical context.

    The motive of the poster is clear however, in making disparaging comments about white folks, there is a divisive attempt to further incite antagonism between Indians and Foreigners.

    In short it is obvious that this poster is still grinding axes from the unfortunate Heehs affair and the complicity of the many Sri Aurobindo Ashramites who discarded wholeheartedly the equanimity teaching of the yoga to engaged in some rather nasty personal attacks on a fellow sadhak.
