The craftsman and the craft grown inly one. Achieve perfection by the magic throb. And passion of their close identity. Savitri Sri Aurobindo.

Affirming the beauty and splendour of her law she claims life as her natural domain. Beauty and Art awake the joy which sleeps in all things made. A mighty victory or a mighty fall, a throne in heaven or a pit in hell find justification in the fact that something is got done, something lived. No wonder, it is the soul which is the ground for Matter, it is the cause of Matter. On inner values is prepared the plan. This world’s apparent sensible design becomes vibrant. Here is a mind which is not limited by senses, powers that are not seen come out in front and reveal their faces. The occult is no more occult, and all becomes palpable and obvious. 

The ultimate realization: Aurobindo’s philosophical and mystical glow is through an integral view of man, Nature and will change the face of the world. In Savitri, his masterpiece he succeeds to a great extent in expressing hoist mystic experiences and yogic realizations. Aurobindo arrives at the conclusion that releases for bondage and changer with the secret knowledge, the soul a chives a complete spiritual transformation Savior is cast for minutely cosmic role of struggle and redemption, and is the incarnation of Divine mother. Savitri is both the response and the resulting transformation. Conclusion: Sri Aurobindo is a skillful craftsman in the use of blank verse and felicity in poetic expression. His grand and mystic style in poetic works are ample testimony of his stupendous achievements.

Katju speaks the 'unpleasant truth': 90% of Indians are fools Firstpost - The 90% - Indian Express Mon Apr 09 2012, Markandey Katju -  The unpleasant truth: 90 per cent of Indians are fools…
In our shastras it is written: "Satyam bruyat, priyam bruyat, na bruyat satyam apriyam." It means, "Speak the truth, speak the pleasant, but do not speak the unpleasant truth." I wish to rectify this. The country's situation today requires that we say "Bruyat satyam apriyam", i.e. "Speak the unpleasant truth".
