Search for Sri Aurobindo in India is not as intense as it should be. Many books stop at cursory references and situating him as a civilisational thinker is rarely attempted. Although, his name is mentioned along with other great men quite often, his unique contributions are hardly outlined. As most people are unaware of the distinction between him and other writers, they fail to do justice with him. Wilful neglect, of course, continues and the younger generation has a role in reversing the same. [TNM55]
