Deshpande's book exposes the numerous factual distortions and deliberate deceptions in Peter Heehs' biography which are intended to distort and mis-represent Sri Aurobindo and his teaching. The book contains a collection of his writings on this theme over a period of several years.
Deshpande is a former scientist of BARC, India's most reputed nuclear research centre, and as such his crisp analytic intellect shines through in his critique of Heeh's distorted and "atrocious" biography. His writing is further uplifted by his obvious scholarship and love for Sri Aurobindo and his writings. A must read for all who love Sri Aurobindo, India and Hinduism.
PS: Rich Carlson has posted an angry review here which is obviously written without having read this book at all. It may be noted that Rich Carlson is financially linked to Peter Heehs and his attrocious biography. His review of Heeh's book elsewhere on this site exposes his anti-Hindu bias and his hatred for anyone who views Sri Aurobindo as a spiritual giant and Guru. His angry review therefore must be seen as high praise for Prof R Y Deshpande's work by all who care for and respect Sri Aurobindo, Indian spirituality and Hinduism in general.
