Dear Friends,

As the second installment of our tribute to the great nationalist and revolutionary Barindra Kumar Ghose, the younger brother of Sri Aurobindo, on the occasion of his 132nd Birth Anniversary, we are publishing a set of his rare photographs.

We also take the opportunity to inform you that Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, has  published Barindra Kumar Ghose’s book The Tale of My Exile : Twelve Years in the Andamans (introduced and edited by Dr. Sachidananda Mohanty of  the Department of English, University of Hyderabad) in December 2011.

There will be a discussion of this book on 19 January 2012 at the India International Centre, 40 Max Muller Marg, New Delhi at the Conference Room No. 1 of the IIC). The discussion will be chaired by Dr. Karan Singh, President, Indian Council of Cultural Relations and will have Dr. Kavita Sharma (Director,IIC), Professor Indra Nath Chaudhury (former Member Secretary, IGNCA) and Professor Sachidananda Mohanty, Editor of this book, as discussants.

With warm regards,
