Raj Nivas, Pondicherry
On September 6, 2019, two poster exhibitions: “Sri Aurobindo and Indian Freedom Movement”; and “Nāri Shakti – Woman, an Indomitable Spirit” were inaugurated by at Hon’ble Lt. Gov. Dr. Kiran Bedi at Raj Nivas, Puducherry.
The poster exhibition titled “Sri Aurobindo and Indian Freedom Movement” highlights the momentous role of Sri Aurobindo in the early years of Indian freedom movement. A specific time period, 1893 to 1910, is selected to weave together a narrative to highlight the significant political and revolutionary activities of Sri Aurobindo. Historical material from various primary and secondary sources is organised and presented, including important passages from Sri Aurobindo’s political speeches.
The poster exhibition titled “Nāri Shakti: Woman, an Indomitable Spirit” is inspired by the idea of Shakti, the primordial cosmic energy which represents the dynamic forces that move through the entire universe. Guided by Sri Aurobindo’s description of the Four Great Powers of the great Mahashakti, this exhibition highlights selected stories of Indian women from Vedic times to the present – women who embody and express one or more powers of the Mahashakti through their chosen field of work, who reflect one or more of these powers through their very presence.
