Hema Malini remembers Sri Aurobindo in Rajya Sabha

Hema Malini stuck a philosophical note in her farewell speech on Friday. She said that she was once the No 1 heroine in the film industry, and that as time passed things changed and there was another No 1. She said that there is nothing permanent in life, and that though she was attached to Rajya Sabha she is aware that things have to change.
She said that India is a land "sant, muni and rishi" and that it is a country of culture and heritage. She said that it was a leanring experience to be in Rajya Sabha, how questions were raised, issues were discussed and problems solved. She admitted that she did not paritcipate in the debates but she learnt a lot.
She thanked her party, the BJP, the members, the staff and employees of Rajya Sabha. She said that many members told her that she would be missed. With a radiant smile and a calm tone she spoke with sweet clarity. Hema Malini is an epitome of dignity of and Indian woman.

Earlier, elaborating her experiences in Rajya Sabha as one of the most memorable, Hema Malini said though she became attached to it and felt sad at this juncture when she had to retire as a member, “things must move on”. “I was the number one heroine in the film industry in the past. As time passes you find there is some one else as number one. Nothing is permanent in life. I also feel attached. I feel sad,” she said. She said she had learnt a lot in the House of Elders and it was “with a heavy heart that I am leaving”. Recalling Sri Aurobindo’s words that India would become super power, she urged members to strive for achieving this goal through unconditional love and purity of thought.

Fame isn't perpetual: Amitabh Bachchan The Times of India IANS Mar 29, 2012
It is a bit discomforting, but it must be known that this glory and recognition shall all fade away one day," he added. The actor, who has spent over four decades in the Hindi film industry, suggests that one should not be enamoured by fame and be gracious if it fades away.
"Some take it kindly, some do not. It is hard and harsh both to see adulation favour away from you and settle on another. Better then to not be too enamoured by it when it serves you. Life is transitory as is fame... Be gracious in accepting that it has gone away, elsewhere," he said.

Jean-Paul Sartre is now relegated to 20th century bookshelves, somewhat like Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. There is no 21st century resonance of his personality or his ideas. But for some of us who had spent the better part of the last quarter of 20th century with an interest in ideas, he seems interesting enough. Sartre typifies the French intellectual, engaged with politics and philosophy and history and art and literature. And in Sartre's generation these different things were woven into each other but each one of them remained a separate strand. This complexity disappeared into a mighty confusion when the so-called post-modern French intellectual of the Jacques Derrida kind appeared in the late 1960s. There was one more thing with the Sartre generation. Friendship. They were friends who differed, debated, quarreled, fell out, sometimes agreed, felt a certain historical and political responsibility. It is this social engagement of the intellectual that is not to be seen now.
In "Portraits (Situations IV)", Sartre's essays translated by Chris Turner and published by Seagull Books of Calcutta in 2009 -- a lovely edition and a competently produced book -- we get to recapture some of the old battles of ideas that Sartre and his friends faced in in the 1940s and 1950s with regard to communism, Stalinism and the Cold War, all of which seem to have died a decent death with the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.  Two pieces on Albert Camus and one each on Paul Nizan and Merleau-Ponty weave these themes together with the personal note of friendship…
There came a point when Sartre and Merleau-Ponty parted ways on questions of principle and differences in perception. But their friendship survived the tenuous period that preceded the years before Merleau-Ponty's death. Posted by Parsa Venkateshwar Rao Jr at 10:50 AM 

Generally speaking, most of Western philosophy is characterized by a desire for strong individuality and liberation from the oppressive Church, society, government.  It is not the same as the vision of a Self-realized sage.  You can't compare apples to oranges - otherwise you become another Ken Wilber… People who learn post-modernism lose the logical side of their mind and rashly start equating all concepts found over the globe. - Sandeep [From a mail]

Although he stood ten feet above us, each foot a sky, he yet attended to every detail of this life of ours, eternity taking care of each and every moment of time, each ray kindling a spark in each grain, in each particle of dust. Comment posted by RY Deshpande Re: Two Poems by Arjava with Sri Aurobindo’s Comments Mar 7, 2012 08:23 PM.
