Photograph of the Tombs of Mira Ismalun and Mathilde Alfassa

Dear Friends,

Today we are publishing the photograph of the tombs of Mira Ismalun (18 December 1830 — 1909) and Mathilde Alfassa (18 December 1857 — 9 December 1944), the Mother’s maternal grandmother and mother respectively. 

The tombs are located at Paris, Cimetière de Montparnasse, Division 24, allée c. The inscriptions on the tomb of Mira Ismalun have become hazy but those on Mathilde’s are still prominent.

We are thankful to Tiziano, our friend from Auroville, for sharing the photograph with us.

With warm regards,

Anurag Banerjee

    If you had read what is written on the marble slab, you would have written Mirra with two R.
    The person who found this family vault is Pushan.
