Deepest respect to the great revolutionary and spiritual leader of India on his birthdayThis man was born on this day in 1872. His father Krishna Dhan Ghosh was considered the best surgeon of that era. His mother was the daughter of famous social leader of the period, Raj Narayan Bose. His brothers were excellent in studies.
He proved himself better than his excellent brothers in studies. He successfully qualified Indian Civil Services (ICS) but did not take part in horse-riding. Leaving ICS he went to Baroda (now Vadodara) to work as English lecturer but returned to Calcutta after some time.
He joined revolutionary group in Calcutta. His able leadership seriously challenged the British rule in India way back in 1905. He was jailed and somehow saved from the gallows by Shri Chittaranjan Das. He realized the presence of God in the condemned cell of Alipore jail in Calcutta.
After his release, he went to Pondicherry (now Puducherry) and led a profoundly spiritual life. He became very famous as a great spiritual leader all over the world. He left this mortal world in 1950.
Our deepest respect to the great revolutionary and spiritual leader of India, Shri Aurobindo Ghosh on his 146th Birthday.
