The peaceful protesters have been seen carrying the following quote of Sri Aurobindo in small laminated placards:
“…..But the Supreme Grace will act only in the conditions of the Light and the Truth; it will not act in conditions laid upon it by the Falsehood and the Ignorance. For if it were to yield to the demands of the Falsehood, it would defeat its own purpose.”
Upon being questioned, they said that they consider the creation of Mirambika as a result of Supreme Grace from above and that they find the the Society’s conduct in this matter full of falsehood and far removed from light and truth. One of the protesters also quoted Sri Aurobindo to say that
“…integral education is a conspiracy against the present day society…” as it can produce people like the protesters who will not compromise with SAES so long as it does not return to path of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. The protesters now plan to go on a relay hunger strike from tomorrow which happens to be the 34th birthday of Mirambika currently being strangulated by PJ aka Mangu to make way for an engineering college. It must be noted here that Sri Aurobindo and the Mother were not in favor of degree – diploma awarding uniform education or training to students. After all, their dear free progress integral education is a primary upwards function and not a college / university downwards function.
