Cosmic soul cover

Dear Friends and Well-wishers of Overman Foundation,

It gives me immense delight to announce that on 29 March 2013 Overman Foundation has published its new book ‘In Quest of the Cosmic Soul’ authored by Dr. Prithwindra Mukherjee, eminent historian, researcher, musicologist who is the recipient of the prestigious ‘Sri Aurobindo Puraskar’ and Chevalier dans l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters).

This anthology is a selection of Dr. Prithwindra’s writings written between 1955 and 2012, thus, covering a span of almost six decades. It includes along with several of his articles written on a varied range of subjects—biographies (written under the pseudonym of BobClive for Wikipedia), short stories, reviews, translations and a drama penned by him. Some major attractions of this volume are his unpublished articles on Anilbaran Roy (1890-1974), the erstwhile member of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Swami Vivekananda (written on the occasion of his 150th Birth Anniversary) and music (Towards a New Tonal Music) as well as his reminiscences of Pandit Ravi Shankar (1920-2012), the great sitar maestro, who passed away very recently. Through this volume an attempt has been made not only to reintroduce the reader to the multifaceted genius of Dr. Prithwindra but also to introduce the ‘complete Prithwindra Mukherjee’ to all those readers who primarily know him as an erudite historian.

‘In Quest of the Cosmic Soul’ comprises 463 pages and is available at a price of Rs. 595 (Five Hundred and Ninety Five) only.
