The compliment reveals itself to be a back-handed one

Active Omissions: A Review of The Lives of Sri Aurobindo by Manoj - Annotated by Debashish

Manoj, an Aurovilian, has penned a short review of The Lives of Sri Aurobindo which has appeared in The Mirror of Tomorrow website. Since the ideas and feelings expressed here are characteristic of a segment of readers, we have thought fit to reproduce this review with annotations. Manoj praises the book for its empirical data but clears those who see "malicious intentions" in it from "blame" after affirming "These interpretations reveal more of author’s inner workings than the object of investigation." He then points to a number of "active omissions" by the author, but in the process, himself perpetrates the most obvious omission by forgetting to mention that those he "cannot blame" are actively supporting persecution of the author and book banning.
