My ideal reader is therefore a sort of composite of the devotee and the academic

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Heehs' heel": Heehs offers differing motivations for the way he wrote the book.

On the Cambridge (sic.) blog, Heehs claims that he is more interested in the "Aurobindo not as an avatar but as a person who wrote a shelf full of books"

in the Auroville Today interview, he says "academics are interested in Aurobindo not as a spiritual figure but because of his writings."

Seems like he is attributing his own motives to his audience. Posted by Anonymous to Savitri Era at 7:24 AM, July 23, 2009

A comment has been posted in reference to an article titled: Amartya Sen on his idea of justice out of London—by Hasan Suroor

Amartya Sen imbibed the influence of Tagore. In fact, his name was changed to Amartya (immortal) by Tagore himself. It may be that he strives to perpetuate the same universality of thought exhibited by his influential mentor.

Can you give some examples of where Amartya has gone wrong in his work?
