“Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry”—An Audio-Visual Presentation: A Report

Dear Friends and Well-wishers,

Sri Aurobindo Sakti Centre Trust and Overman Foundation had jointly organized an audio-visual presentation on Sri Aurobindo titled “Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry” on Thursday, 1 August 2013 at 6.30 p.m. in the premises of Sri Aurobindo Sakti Centre located at P—532, BLOCK “M”, New Alipore, Kolkata 700053.

This audio-visual presentation which was perhaps the first of its kind held at Sri Aurobindo Centres in West Bengal chronicled the entire period of Sri Aurobindo’s life from 1910 to December 1950 with the help of 154 photographs (some of which were quite rare) and narratives through a slide show. Based on a script prepared by Mr. Anurag Banerjee, the said presentation was conducted by Mr. Partha Sarathi Bose (Managing Trustee, Sri Aurobindo Sakti Centre Trust) and Mr. Anurag Banerjee (Founder, Overman Foundation). A special attraction of the programme was the rendition of two recorded songs on Sri Aurobindo and the Mother composed and sung by the great musical maestro Dilip Kumar Roy.

The programme—which witnessed the presence of senior Aurobindonians like Dr. Jaganmoy Banerjee, Dr. Amartya Kumar Dutta and Mr. Subroto Sen (Secretary, Sri Aurobindo’s Action, West Bengal)—had generated a great amount of interest among the audience.

With warm regards,
The Overman Foundation Team
