Mangesh V. Nadkarni
Dr. Mangesh V. Nadkarni (1933-2007) was a Professor of Linguistics in Hyderabad and Singapore. After his retirement he devoted himself to sharing his enjoyment and understanding of the writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother with appreciative audiences all over the world. From 1995 onwards he used to hold regular Study Camps on Sri Aurobindo’s revelatory epic poem Savitri each February and August at the Beach Offices of the Sri Aurobindo Society in Pondicherry. The essays gathered in this collection first appeared in the e-journal of the Sri Aurobindo Society Next Future and are now offered in book form for the benefit of a wider audience. They cover the whole of Savitri and will be of interest and assistance to all who aspire for a deeper understanding and appreciation of Sri Aurobindo’s unique poetic masterwork.
