The Fourth “Shrimat Anirvan Memorial Oration” organized by Overman Foundation was held on Saturday, 7 July 2017, at Sri Aurobindo Bhavan (8 Shakespeare Sarani, Kolkata 700071).
The programme was chaired by Professor Supriyo Bhattacharya, former Head of the Department of Economics, Kalyani University. Shri Anurag Banerjee, Founder of Overman Foundation, briefly spoke about the life of Shrimat Anirvan.
The speaker was Dr. Soumitro Basu, renowned psychiatrist, Editor of NAMAH, one of the founders of Sri Aurobindo International Institute of Integral Health and Research (SAIIHR), Director of Institute of Integral Yoga Psychology (Auroshakti Foundation) and Secretary, Miravision Trust who spoke on the theme : “Shrimat Anirvan on Death.”
Dr. Soumitro Basu brilliantly portrayed Shrimat Anirvan’s views on Death from the analytical, practical and cosmic perspectives which kept the audience mesmerized throughout the session.
Two books of Shrimat Anirvan were officially released on the 7th of July. The first book was the second and revised edition of his famous book “Letters from a Baul” while the second book titled “Mrityu O Janmantor Prasange” was a new anthology of his writings on Death and Rebirth. Both the books—edited by Ms. Bratati Mukhopadhyay and Shri Sanjoy Biswas and published by Overman Foundation—were released on the occasion by Shri Biswajit Gangopadhyay, noted researcher and Managing Member of Sri Aurobindo Bhavan, Kolkata, who also exhibited, through power-point presentation, a collection of extremely rare photographs of Shrimat Anirvan, especially those of the latter’s last journey.
