Date: August 9, 2022

Venue: Matriniketan, Sri Aurobindo Society, 34 Marvadi Street, Kuruchikuppam, Pondicherry

Sri Aurobindo’s poem Baji Prabhou is inspired by the well-known historical event when Baji Prabhou Deshpande, to cover Shivaji Maharaj’s retreat, held the fort of Rangana for over two hours with a small company of men against twelve thousand Mughal soldiers. Join us as we celebrate this chapter of Indian history through the poem of Sri Aurobindo.

We invite you to explore how the seer-poet Sri Aurobindo expresses the exemplary strength, patriotism and valour of Baji Prabhou through the beauty of different rasa-s, at the same time infusing the poem with a deeper spiritual philosophy and ideal, which gives it a powerful intensity and leaves a strong impact on the reader and listener.
