This first volume of two is a collection of articles on the epic Savitri by a wide variety of authors, many of whom came in direct contact with Sri Aurobindo and thus were able to provide an intimate personal feel to their writings.
In the words of the editor, "While making a selection of articles from various authors in the present volume the working thumb-rule followed was to see that the compilation is sufficiently broad-based to cover in an over-all way the numerous aspects of the epic."
Three letters by Sri Aurobindo and a talk by the Mother are included, as well as articles by:
- Nolini Kanta Gupta
- A. B. Purani
- Dilip Kumar Roy
- Amal Kiran and several others.
