The wonder that is Savitri

[Seshagiri said... 6:39 PM, April 15, 2008
Can I have at any place on web, explanatory notes on Sri Aurobindo's epic poem - SAVITRI.- Please help me. -Seshagiri]

It is nice to see that you have developed an interest in Savitri, but my suggestion will be: Be patient. You need not go by line-by-line at the outset, but be curious and try to read about it wherever the mouse leads you. There is a narrative that runs through the epic, but the more important aspect is the message. So, you can just read a few lines at random, re-read them, contemplate over them, or, may be, write a few lines by way of explanation; that's how you will have the pleasure of discovery.

Yours fraternally, Tusar N. Mohapatra
