Sri Aurobindo's life in the form of a novel by Arup Mitra

New Delhi, Mar 28 : Away from the cliched domain of bibliography and history, Arup Mitra's historical novel 'Uttara Yogi' delicately blends the intricacies of adventure, love, patriotism and betrayal to depict pre-Independent India and the true identity of one of India's most beloved sons - Aurobindo Ghose.
The novel travels through the maze of numerous episodes, umpteen experiences and multitude of characters to tell a tale of Uttara Yogi whose arrival presages the liberation of India from the yoke of foreign rule - as predicted by a spiritual leader in 1870.

Based on the life of Sri Aurobindo, the book extracts richly from books, letters, reports, records, biographies, archival photographs and unpublished manuscripts while maintaining the independence and fictionary taut element of a novel to recreate the mood of the nationalist movement then.

Bringing alive the momentous period in
India's history ''in which the first sparks of national awakening were born'' the author had tried to inspire his readers towards ''devotion for Sri Aurobindo'' with aplomb and panache while depicting the guile and deceit of the English imperial empire.

To use the author's own words - ''I have recounted the story of Sri Aurobindo's life in the form of a novel''... ''Uttara Yogi is a work of fiction where creations and potrayal of characters, the plot and narrative thread are products of the author's imagination''.

''But this does not mean that everything in the novel is fictitious,'' he adds while emphasising that during his ''artistic liberty'' there has been no attempt to belittle any historical personality or to cast aspersions on anyone.

Pointing that the first freedom struggle - the Mutiny of 1857, failed because rebel leaders were disorganised and disunited, the book notifies how reawakening and renaissance stirred India's educated class during the second half of the 19th century - a period marked by 24 famines.

While dishing out the criticism of the Indian National Congress, founded in 1885, by Aurobindo for its ''ineffective imitation of western models'', 'Uttara Yogi' lays bare the tortuous journey that brought India its hard earned freedom after passing through the labyrinth alleys of plunder by the East India Company, inhuman treatment at the hands of the British, discrimination by imperilist rulers, and the launch of 'swadeshi movement' and the message of 'swaraj' propounded by extremist leaders - ignited by the tenets of extremist philosophy of Bipin Chandra Pal-Aurobindo Ghose.

A well-knit prose, which is neither prosaic nor poetic, 'Uttara Yogi' arguably needs a read to its final page to get what its takes a historical novel to be -- historically apt but fictionally thrilling -- exactly what Aurobindo had himself said in his 'Savitri' - ''For man shall not know the coming till the hour, And belief shall be not till the work is done.'' –UNI Home > News > india-news

Was Rukmini Devi a rebel? In her lifetime, she was many things and perhaps a rebel the most. As her 106th birth anniversary arrives on the invisible February 29, Athai (as she was widely known to her students and friends) had many 'avatars' - Theosophist, animal welfare activist, dancer and politician (Rajya Sabha nominee twice and candidate for President of India). Known best for her founding the magnificent Bharatanatyam institution Kalakshetra in Chennai, dance history records her many achievements.
Like Sri Aurobindo's Mahashakti, she shattered many obstacles and paved new pathways for generations of men and women to access classical dance and music. I perused old photos of her riding at the pyramids, walking the corn fields of the USA wearing saris, pants and hats with élan, conversing with European men and women with confidence and ease. This was in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, when a new India was being birthed and an entire generation was filled with the ambivalence of hope and uncertainty.
Accused today of 'sanitizing' Bharatanatyam by removing the overt eroticism in the traditional repertoire, Rukmini Devi recognized the potential of classical dance to be the symbol of India's cultural and spiritual regeneration. Schools, weaving centres, organic farming, painting, music and dance were all complementary activities in her master plan for the development of an artiste.
Marrying a foreigner many years older to her was the source of societal outrage but she did not wilt…. Anita R Ratnam, Chennai, India March 1, 2010

The Great Adventure
“We are in a very special situation, extremely special, without precedent. We are now witnessing the birth of a new world; it is very young, very weak -not in its essence but in its outer manifestation - not yet recognised, not even felt, denied by the majority. But it is here. It is here, making an effort to grow, absolutely sure of the result. But the road to it is a completely new road which has never before been traced out - nobody has gone there, nobody has done that! It is a beginning, a universal beginning. So it is an absolutely unexpected and unpredicatable adventure. There are people who love adventure. It is these I call, and I tell them this: "I invite you to the great adventure." It is not a question of repeating spiritually what others have done before us, for our adventure begins beyond that. It is a question of a new creation, entirely new, with all the unforeseen events, the risks, the hazards it entails - a real adventure , whose goal is certain victory, but the road to which is unknown and must be traced out step by step in the unexplored. Something that has never been in this present universe and that will never be again in the same way. If that interests you... well, let us embark. What will happen to you tomorrow - I have no idea. One must put aside all that has been foreseen, all that has been devised, all that has been constructed, and then.. set off walking into the unknown. And - come what may! There.” The Mother

DAY 03 - June 12
Morning event Ascend To Truth ( group interactive session )
The discovery and growth of one’s inner being is not a mere figment of imagination but the consistent expression of psychic truth, of a direct experience ‘that passes all the argument of the earth.’ Only a rare few have hit upon this adventure; they are the pioneers of the spirit’s ways
Afternoon event Local art and culture
“All Indian art is a throwing out of a certain profound self-vision formed by a going within to find out the secret significance of form and appearance, a discovery of the subject in one's deeper self, the giving of soul-form to that vision and a remoulding of the material and natural shape to express the psychic truth of it with the greatest possible purity and power of outline and the greatest possible concentrated rhythmic unity of significance in all the parts of an indivisible artistic whole.”
Evening event – The Psychic and The Truth
Speakers –
DAY 04 - June 13
Morning event Role of an Ideal Child in today’s world
( trekking and excursion)
“To do something for the Lord is to give Him something of what one has, or of what one does, or of what one is. That is to say, to offer to Him one part of our goods or all of our possessions, to consecrate to Him one part of our work or all our activities, or to give ourselves to Him totally and without reserve so that He may take possession of our nature in order to transform and divinise it....” -17 August 1960

The Rivero appeal
Dear friends, since long we are striving to do something - a something which should be different from all other things. In simple words we would like to be different from what the normal mass does. Different in consciousness, a higher consciousness. No beaten tracks to follow, no fixed path to travel by.
We would like to follow the newer adventurous paths in a spontaneity. No matter how difficult the roads may be we will march on with the beloved mother besides us. we will drink life to the lees and shall never yield. we wish to fathom the depths of the sea, we desire secretly to fly in the blue sky, we seek to embrace the vastness of the 4th dimensional space. we are after all brave warriors of the divine mother, then fear whom? Fear what? Fear why? Fear when?
We the like-minded warriors of The Mother unite in Risida to work out a kind of experimentation. Learning by identification and experience. A rediscovering of our true self. we must aspire collectively to do something for ourselves and for our surroundings. We have a task. We must prove we are capable of truly understanding ourselves. the world goes on in its own ways but we will go on with the grace of the mother.
This experimental camp is proposed to organize ourselves independently and to start a youth movement as envisaged by our Sweet Mother. Let us learn while we play, and play while we work, we have many promises to keep and many miles to run.
We wish to be the instruments of The Mother. We will create our own environment.

The camp will be inaugurated by a cross country 4 km run with “flame of aspiration” and the flame will be installed at Matrupuri. The camp will be for 4 nights and 5 days. Only the participants and organisers will run and carry the “flame of aspiration” wearing the t-shirt which will be given to them with spiritual logo. The campers should bring with them white shorts, white half shirt and white converse. The campers should be mentally prepared to face hardships and be ready to take up challenges, although every attempt will be made to extend the maximum possible amenities.
The themes of the camp will be “rediscovering oneself” , “ascend to truth” and “the ideal child. “ all the participants will partake with discussions and at the end, the whole discussion will be synthesized in the light of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. The youth are the messengers of strength and vitality. Let us unite for the sake of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo and let us wake up and become a little more conscious inwardly.
The objective of the camp will be to re-orient the teenagers and help them grow physically stronger, vitally more refined, mentally aware of themselves and spiritually open to the grace of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. The camp shall be organized by the campers themselves with external ( financial support from well wishers) the elderly so-called organisers will supervise the minute to minute conduct of the camp and will eventually suggest the loop-holes which shall be noticed for future rectifications.
All steps will be taken to re-conduct the camp every year in different remote locations or may be in Risida itself. We have plunged unknowingly. What is going to happen to-morrow, but by the grace of The Mother we are sure to grow in number over a short period. “with certitude we shall march”

How about rewriting the opening chapter of The Life Divine

India's Jewish Mother by Michelle Goldberg Tablet Magazine A New ...
How Mirra Alfassa went from being a French bohemian to an Indian goddess India's (Jewish) Mother Tablet Magazine
Mirra Alfassa in Pondicherry circa 1969. They’re of an old woman with hooded eyes and a cryptic closed-mouth smile who looks a bit like Hannah Arendt. Everyone refers to her as “The Mother,” but she was born Mirra Alfassa. The de facto goddess of this town is a Sephardic Jew from France
In the center of the community, both geographically and physically, is a massive spherical gold-plated structure called the Matmandir, or Temple of the Mother. According to Mirra, it is the “symbol of the Divine’s answer to man’s aspiration for perfection.” It looks like some sort of UFO and leaves one agog at Mirra’s spiritual audacity.
She wasn’t the first Jew who sought to remake the world into a place where ethnic and nationalist categories were obsolete. And Auroville, which Mirra imagined as a futuristic city of 50,000 that would transform the world, has obviously fallen short of that goal. Living there, with its strange combination of anarchism and cultish orthodoxy, would probably be a nightmare. Still, its very existence in this obscure, murderously hot place has a touch of the miraculous about it. Michelle Goldberg is the author of Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism and The Means of Reproduction: Sex, Power, and the Future of the World.

Sri Aurobindo’s Marriage—a discussion by Raman Reddy pertaining to a few aspects in context of the latest biography published by the Columbia University Press. Comment posted by: RY Deshpande
I’d written an article presenting some of these ideas related with Savitri, though in a somewhat different manner, and given for publication in the Ashram’s monthly Mother India. I’ve not heard anything about it in spite of a lapse of a few years, and one or two soft queries. It will therefore a vain and frustrating hope if the present article by Raman Reddy will at all be published by this monthly.
Comment posted by: RY Deshpande
It prompts me to make a suggestion, following Kepler’s line of argument about “engaging contemporary intellectual culture”. How about rewriting the opening chapter of The Life Divine as an example of such an engagement, when we know that it was written almost a hundred years ago? Let’s see to what extent it will make an appeal to the contemporary intellect.
Comment posted by: Anonymous
The only rational and sensible solution seems to be this: If Sri Aurobindo has written something himself, just restore it… If something can be done to restore the original 1951  and 1954 editions (the ones the Mother read from when she did her work with Huta) that would be just enough. Isn't that what the Mother wanted? How can the ashram contemplate otherwise? Research on savitri can continue, all versions made available at the archives. Research doesn't have to mean revising the poem. It is hard to digest that someone as gifted as Amal Kiran could have agreed to adopt such naive methods...

Security strengthened at Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry

Rajesh B. Nair
Police come out with a series of suggestions

PUDUCHERRY: In a recent communication to authorities of the Aurobindo Ashram, the police have suggested several permanent measures to strengthen security in and around the premises to deal with any terrorist attacks.
The police have stressed the need to restrict the entry of vehicles to Marine Street in front of the Ashram main building by placing movable barricades at the junctions of Manakula Vinayagar Koil Street and Rue Francois Street. Similarly, entry of vehicles to Saint Gilles Street behind the ashram main building should be restricted. The authorities have been asked to extend the coverage of Closed Circuit Television Cameras in the Ashram so as to cover the entire building. A control room should be set up to monitor the footage.
The recording should be stored in a database with backup facility for three years. The police have also urged the ashram to install metal detectors at the main gate. They have also suggested deployment of volunteers for surveillance.
Similar security arrangements should be made at the Ashram guest houses, dining hall and other institutions maintained by them. The security measures should be implemented at the earliest.
Notice board informing the devotees about the security arrangements should be displayed. Visitors should be informed that they are under electronic surveillance, the communication stated.
