Reminiscences of Sri Aurobindo by C C Dutt, who’s whole life since first meeting Sri Aurobindo in 1890’s was linked with him in many ways.

The course of Sri Aurobindo’s life has undoubtedly been mysterious. He himself said in a letter that it has not been visible on the surface and therefore it has been beyond the ken of the ordinary man. Then again, he had always been, even in the days of his political activity, averse to pushing himself forward.
