Early political writings, most of them editorials and articles from Bande Mataram, a Calcutta daily edited by Sri Aurobindo from 1906 to 1908.
"During its brief but momentous existence", wrote Sri Aurobindo, Bande Mataram "changed the political thought of India". As its editor, his "first preoccupation was to declare openly for complete and absolute independence (from British rule) as the aim of political action in India and to insist on this persistently in the pages of the journal".
