Turnout was less than usual because of incessant rains

People from all over the country paid homage to 'The Mother' at her memorial at Aurobindo Ashram here on the occasion of her 37th death anniversary on Wednesday. Devotees meditated before the memorial and also visited her room in the ashram premises, where she used to carry on her spiritual work. The Mother passed away on November 17, 1973.
Ashram workers distributed cards containing her messages to visitors. The turnout was less than usual because of incessant rains in the last two days. The Mother was a spiritual collaborator of the ashram founder Sri Aurobindo. The Ashram was established here in 1926.

Urmi Chackraborty, better known for her National Award winning film, Hemanter Pakhi (2002), said: “In the recent past, although women are coming up as potential film makers, the number of films made by them screened at KFF has shrunk.” Her 23-minute documentary — Trials of Sri Aurobindo — scans the spiritual leader’s ideology and concepts as a way of enlightening the present generation.
