Reach Puducherry on April 4, 2010

[Stamp to commemorate 100th anniversary of Sri Aurobindo's arrival
Times of India - ‎Jul 29, 2009‎ PUDUCHERRY: The Union government will release a stamp next year to commemorate the 100th anniversary of revolutionary-turned-philosopher Sri Aurobindo's arrival in Puducherry... Sri Aurobindo, who was declared by the British as a most dangerous man reached the then French colony of Puducherry at 4 pm on April 4, 1910. One of the prominent leaders who sowed the seeds of the Indian freedom struggle, Sri Aurobindo abruptly ended his active participation in political affairs and reached the Union territory... The coastal territory outside the jurisdiction of the British was a sanctuary for nationalists who were not in the good books of the British. The British had issued a warrant of arrest for his article, To my countrymen' published in Karmayogin. The British though had information that Sri Aurobindo was in Puducherry had no authority to arrest him without the help of the French government.]

Savitri Erans spread all over the world are requested to hold publicity campaigns and organize promotional shows to impress upon tourists to reach Puducherry on April 4, 2010 in maximum number. Let this occasion be a test of our crusading capabilities. [TNM]
