In this part, A V Sastri briefly outlines how the unique Indian spirit of nationalist struggle for independence led by Sri Aurobindo, Lokmanya Tilak and others was gradually replaced by the moral-ethical nature of Gandhian call for political freedom. He also writes of the limits of such moralistic attempts.
This issue is dedicated to prenatal education. It features some important insights from ancient Indian perspectives. A recent book on historical and cross-cultural perspectives on menstruation is reviewed. Also included are next three parts of the ongoing essay from archives of Sri Aurobindo Circle.
