Dear Friends and Well-wishers of Overman Foundation,
It gives me immense pleasure to announce that on 31st December 2010 Overman Foundation has published its second research project in English, “Sri Aurobindo: His Political Life and Activities”.
This book comprising of 445 pages is a chronological study of Sri Aurobindo’s political life from 1906 to 1910 through British Government documents, press coverage, memoirs of his political colleagues as well as his own autobiographical account. Hundreds of documents collected from British Government records (some of which have been published in this book for the first time) and press cuttings—both being more than a century old—have been incorporated in this volume. In addition to the aforesaid documents and press coverage, the book includes rare letters written to Sri Aurobindo by Nationalist leaders like Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Surendranath Banerjea and others. It also includes the reminiscences of the likes of Brahmabandhab Upadhyay, Nolini Kanta Gupta, Sudhir Kumar Sarkar (who were Sri Aurobindo’s associates in the Nationalist movement) about the political activities of Sri Aurobindo.
A chief attraction of this book is the complete text of the speech of Chittaranjan Das which he had rendered while defending Sri Aurobindo in the Alipore Bomb Trial.
Another major attraction of this book is six extremely rare articles written on Sri Aurobindo by Bepin Chandra Pal, Charu Chandra Dutta, Hemendra Prasad Ghose, S. R. Das, Suresh Deb and Birendra Chandra Sen. And the reader is expected to find as many as nineteen speeches and two interviews of Sri Aurobindo in this book.
Compiled and edited by Shri Anurag Banerjee and with a preface from the pen of Prof. Kittu Reddy, this e-book is priced Rs. 200 (two hundred) only.

I have already posted my requirement through your g.mail address. Kindly confirm your retail outlet for purchasing the books on Aurobindo Ghose. It’s really interesting that you have coined the name as ‘ Overman’ foundation and not ‘Overmind’. I would be very happy to see your books as I am a doctoral scholar in Calcutta University working a Ph.D theses on Aurobindo and Pondicherry.
