It’s clear to anyone who looks without ideological bias that Pak is fracturing and what Mother said decades ago is indeed happening.

Regardless of what The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have said from time to time during the last Century, can we agree on certain policies at present as regards Pakistan?
  • That it is a nation apart and we respect its sovereignty,
  • We should not be unduly interested in its internal affair; and
  • Bilateral trade and people-to-people contact should be our primary concern. [TNM] Reply

Strange! how can one say “regardless of…” when one also proclaims “Savitri Era of those who adore, Om Sri Aurobindo & The Mother”? ~RYD Reply

I agree with the third one. Mother and SA have said that Pakistan should never be accepted as a settled fact - acknowledging it as a nation and respecting its sovereignity would amount to doing that. As to being interested in its internal affairs there are two issues: If those "internal" affairs affect India we cannot but be interested and involved. Second, by its hostile actions in Kashmir and elsewhere and by openly expressing interest in destabilizing India, Pakistan has made its intentions clear. In such a situation, India cannot be expected to be purely defensive in its response. Reply

You seem to be suggesting that we eschew meta-narratives, inculcate a state of irreverence and strive to develop our dialogic self. That is great but shouldn't we also regard The Mother & Sri Aurobindo statements as a performative utterance? What would be the non-reductionistic perspective in this situation ? Reply
