A talk in Hindi by Dr Alok Pandey (AUDIO)
The talk is based on Sri Aurobindo’s longer narrative poem ‘Love and Death’. The poem is written in blank verse while in Baroda around 1899 in the pre-yogic phase of Sri Aurobindo’s life. The poem relives the noble sentiment of human love climbing to its peak through the law of sacrifice in its wrestle with death and fate.
