An attempt to write such a biography can be made here itself in the Wikipedia style by collective contribution. By writing and rewriting say, seven sentences everyday, one chapter can be covered in one month. [TNM]

That’s an inspired suggestion, and thanks. May I request volunteers to come forward? We can set aside a category for both the Mother and Sri Aurobindo.

Auroman – If one tied together all these facts, does that really make it a hagiography ? Is it not possible to examine and render such rich data in a non-devotional setting ?
This is a good point worth reflecting upon. It surely ought to be possible to render all this in a non-devotional and (therefore) a non-hagiographic setting. This need not result in an anti-hagiographical account.

SELF posits a model of counselling and communicative action as an instrument in order to stimulate the public sphere. The model aims at supplementing the individual’s struggle for a successful social adjustment with more aspirational inputs so as to help one take an informed and balanced attitude towards life as well as society.
