In her brief introductory remarks, Senior Associate at SAFIC, Beloo Mehra, informed the gathering that a specific time period, 1893 to 1910, has been selected to weave together a narrative to highlight the most important ways in which Sri Aurobindo participated in some significant political and revolutionary events.
The year 1893 was chosen because in that year Sri Aurobindo returned to India after spending 14 years of student life in England. (UNI)
