Ideas of RSS would have been revolting to Sri Aurobindo

Odisha: Atibadi Jagannath Das award presented to noted writer Manoj Das Report by Suchsmita Sahoo, Bhubaneswar: Monday, January 28, 2013 
Culture Minister Maheswar Mohanty presented Atibadi Jagannath Das award to noted writer Manoj Das at Bhanjakala Mandap in Bhubaneswar on Monday. The award, carried a cash award of Rs 25,000 and a citation… In 1971 his research in the archives of London and Edinburgh brought to light some of the little known facts of India's freedom struggle in the first decade of the twentieth century led by Sri Aurobindo for which he received the first Sri Aurobindo Puraskar (Kolkata ) .

The concept of an alternative app­­roach to the way children experience school is not entirely new. Long before the recent upsurge in alternative schooling, social reformers and thinkers had proposed non-formal modes of education in the country. Prominent thinkers and activists like Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Jiddu Krishna­mu­rthy, Sri Aurobindo and Gijubhai Badheka have been proponents of a different form of education that was not regimented. Before the British established the current system of education in the country, knowledge was imparted through village scho­ols like pathshalas, gurukuls and madarasas.

SUCCESSOR TO GANDHI May be Master of 35 Languages Sunday Times (Perth, WA: 1902 - 1954) Sunday 30 September 1934
Will Gandhi's successor, as leader of Indian nationalism, be Sri Aurobindo Ghose, the master of 35 languages, who, 24 years ago retired from politics, took a vow of silence, and swore not to return to British India until India gets complete independence? Sri Aurobindo is now living at Pondicherry, in French India, where he was recently visited by a deputation of seven London-Indian nationalists, who asked him to attend the next session of the Indian National Congress in Bombay, and take over its leadership from Gandhi, who is now giving all his time to social reform.
Born and brought up in London, Sri Aurobindo led the Bengal revolution of 1910; and when he was charged with sedition there was an Indignant outburst in the House of Commons from Mr. Ramsay MacDonald, at that time Labour M.P. for Leicester. It was then that Sri Aurobindo went out of politics, since when he has written 500 books. The Mercury (Hobart, Tas.: 1860 - 1954) Friday 19 October 1934

Page 156 ... In Upadhyaya’s rather derivative and mechanically holistic 'third way' philosophy, there is also the continuation of a strand of 'religious' nationalism (similar to Ernest Renan's nineteenth century proclamation of 'national soul') that travelled from Aurobindo and Savarkar, and into Golwalkar’s writings.
