Photographs of Sri Aurobindo’s Family Members

Dear Friends,

Today we are publishing a set of photographs of Sri Aurobindo’s family members. This collection—which is a part of the Sujata Nahar Papers and Photographs preserved in the Archives of Overman Foundation—includes the photos of Dr. Krishnadhan Ghose (Sri Aurobindo’s father), Swarnalata Devi (Sri Aurobindo’s mother), Benoy Bhushan Ghose (Sri Aurobindo’s eldest brother) and his wife Umarani Devi, Manmohan Ghose (Sri Aurobindo’s elder brother) and his two daughters Mrinalini and Lotika and Sarojini Ghose (Sri Aurobindo’s sister).

With warm regards,

Anurag Banerjee

    Delightful indeed because here are fortunate souls that came with Him on earth and formed His entourage ! To be a brother, sister, parent or aunt or uncle of the Divine is not the fortune of all. Deeply moving and rare photograghs ! Lotika n Mrinalini, His cousin sisters are extremely graceful n beautiful !Thank you dear Anurag.
