Who is Aurobindo?

That's the question somebody asked me last week, when I was in Pondicherry. Felt sick. I think if things continue the way they are soon all we will remember is Nehru,Indira, Rajeev and if I am not a bit over the top, Sonia too.
How many people are aware of the work of the likes of Bankim, Tilak, Vivekananda,Subramania Bharati, Tagore and Lala Lajpat Rai.
Nobody cares. In todays newspaper you can see half page advertisement of Tourism Ministry, with pictures of Rajeev Gandhi claiming how he transformed the Indian tourism industry. Bullshit, it just reflects the congress mantra "Lick your way up".
Just to give you a fare idea of the state of tourism industry, Shrilanka attracts more tourists then India. Come on somebody ask them to cut the crap.
