Angiras, a free thinker, should simply walk away

RYD said... Angiras speaks of Cold Storage entries in his article. My puzzle is, how does he get information about these internal records unless he is a member of the Ashram Archives or else he has intimate contacts with them? In any case, are the Ashram authorities aware of these inside details being put on non-official websites? If they are not, should they not be made aware of these facts? It will be then up to them to act in whatever manner they might find it fit to act in this regard, might like to take cognisance of the matter in a suitable way. In my opinion the issue must be viewed seriously. March 21, 2009 9:59 PM

Mar 17, 2009 Ranganath's reply to Angiras 2 comments:

Raman Reddy said... Ranganath’s brief replies (sometimes one-line punches) take the breath out of this fulminating pseudo-Rishi called Angiras (Angry-on-us, as somebody said). The latter seemed at first sight irrefutable with his ability to produce quotations from Sri Aurobindo and the Mother’s works to buttress his arguments. But Ranganath’s insistence on the one argument that “denigration of the Guru” does not fit in any scheme of things, pays off at the end. For after all, that is common sense, which no intellectual jugglery with words can deceive. March 19, 2009 4:00 PM

RYD said... It is said that common sense is the most uncommon commodity. In any case, let me just mention here that Angiras [Alok Pandey's Angry-on-us] complains elsewhere that he cannot do full justice to his thoughts because of the limited access of Internet he has been provided with. What a pity, that a free thinker should be bound by such constraints! But if he is true to his stuff, he should simply walk away from that place and give free expression to his Angry-on-us-Wisdom.
