Mr. Guha, would you please care to tell me if matters of faith are dogmas,” Why the hell parliamentarians and all Judges swear in the name of GOD”?  This in itself, I think, is enough to say how many nuggets of wisdom lie there in that book.
Open Letter To Kanchan Gupta storified demystified
I hope you have some stake in Bengal but i do not know what is your knowledge about Sri Aurobindo, in-spite of being a bengali, but as far as Mihir Kumar Jha is ... What was the book in discussion? Any idea? How much do you know about this book, curios. [The Lives of Sri Aurobindo] Was Harini Calamur aware of the book? Has she read that book?  Read this tweet here? Kanchan Gupta @KanchanGupta - @Great_Gujarati What he did is heinous. He abused @calamur and he denigrated the 'OM' icon he uses as his DP. End of story.

General Editor June 16, 2012 10:45 AM Comment by Jadunandan Samal:
The present situation demands the organisation to be reformed. As such the benificiaries (particularly the Ashramites) should courageously deal with the matter without fear. The change is indispensable and it should be based on democracy with good will for the spiritual growth of the Ashram. The present authorieties are expected to decide in its favour. J N Samal.
General Editor June 16, 2012 10:54 AM Comment by Ritwik Banerjee: THE NEED FOR ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE
Though Mother didn’t give value to administered justice, we may think over it in a different perspective for society. What does society expect from the Ashram and especially its managers and trustees if not to be living examples and beacon lights for its educators, law-makers, leaders, business entrepreneurs and new generation members for an evolution towards a collective perfection? Spirituality will ensue inevitably as a flowering naturally thereafter. In the present context, this Ashram has both blind and seeing devotees in its ambit spread all over the world. There may be fake types also who do not bother about the Ideal. When Mother and Sri Aurobindo were in their physical bodies and guiding disciples, there was no problem. They decided in their light in each case. Now it is all a complex business. We have read in books that when Vatel, a domestic help in the early years in the Ashram, was in danger and in a dire situation, his wife wept for his life and Sri Aurobindo’s compassion saved his life from the dire consequences of his “small” mistake with which he had threatened life in the Ashram! But here, Peter Heehs and his wife, if he has one, are not praying or weeping before the Master and the Mother for a reprieve but claiming it from us as a right to his freedom. That he can have always, by all means. But how should he have it in the name of “Sri Aurobindo’s Yoga”? This is the point. (R. Banerjee)
H Acharya June 16, 2012 7:54 PMA change is inevitable:
The despotism of the present group of trustees is not healthy for Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Current events around the world show the fall and replacement of despots by a movement towards democracy. By their mis-management during the recent years, the trustees have amply proved themselves incompetent for the trust and love of devotees and Ashramites. Hence, they should willingly step down in a peaceful process, and extend their helping hands to reconstitute the board with new faces who are trustworthy and caring. The Mother will bless them for doing so. Otherwise, the writings are on the wall for all to see. They may be replaced with more unpleasant and violent means, as is the trend worldwide.
This is not the time for the Ashramites to give room to fear. With faith in the Mother’s name, may they proceed ahead on the path for reformation and a new order. As we understand, some courts have suggested that the members of charitable trusts should change every 5/7 years. Long-entrenched trustees are not healthy for the Ashram, unless they have the personality and heart to stay clear of petty ego.
