Photographs of the early members of Sri Aurobindo Ashram

Dear Friends,

As a part of our ongoing series on the early period of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, we are publishing some photographs of the early members of the Ashram. Most of these rare photographs are from the Nirmal Nahar Papers and Photographs preserved at the Archives of Overman Foundation.

With warm regards,

    1. No, Srikant-ji. The young gentleman is not K. Amrita. He was a Tamil Christian named Dumont.
