We have reached at a historic moment in Indian history – the centenary of Sri Aurobindo’s acquittal and famous Uttarpara speech. On 6 May 1909 Mr. Beachcroft, the judge of Alipore Bomb Case delivered his judgment.
So, we dedicate this issue to commemorate this two historic moments. Sri Aurobindo was acquitted with others after one year of jail life (according to him ashram life). While concluding the Alipore Bomb case for the defense of Sri Aurobindo, well-known lawyer Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das had delivered a memorable speech. It’s still vibrating in our ears.
“ …My appeal to you is this—that long after this turmoil, this agitation will have ceased, long after he is dead and gone, he will be looked upon as the poet of patriotism, as the prophet of nationalism and the lover of humanity. Long after he is dead and gone, his words will be echoed and reechoed not only in India but across distant seas and lands….”
On 30th May he had delivered historic speech at Uttarpara, a town in Bengal. In that speech he openly described his spiritual experiences inside the jail. He also discussed in detail about the Sanatan Dharma.
Apart from our regular sections, most of the articles are on these two events including the original version of the Uttarpara speech by Sri Aurobindo. Our endeavour is to unfold the great history of India’s political and social life before the present young generation.
