About the Author

Surender Nath Jauhar : Born August 13, 1903 at village Vahalee, Distt. Jhelum (now in Pakistan), resident of sri aurobindo Asharm, New Delhi. Education at D.A.V. college and National college, Lahore ; member D.C.C. (1939); member P.C.C. (1934-47): took part in the civil Disobedience movement (1930) and the quiet India Movement (1942) ; defied martial Law Regulations (1919) and suffered beatings and forced marches under the British sergeants. In 1930, organised boycott of foreign cloth throughout the “Katras” of Chandani chowk ; November 14, 1930 read the congress Independence Day Resolution at the clock tower ; arrested and tried for six different counts; sentenced to nine months’R. 1. And six months’ R. 1. In the Central jail Multan ; tortured in jail and released in 1931 on account of Gandhi –Irwin Pact; in 1942 ; went underground and worked with shrimati Aruna Asaf Ali and shri Jugal Kishore Khanna; arrested on September 17,, 1942 after fierce fighting at the point of pistol; dragged along with his wife in Connaught circus followed by thousands of people; in the scuffle, the Magistrate on duty ordered to shoot him dead, escaped providentially ; tried under various counts for about two years and acquitted on May 6, 1944.

Foreword

Someone very wisely said, “those who have a ‘why ‘ to lie for can bear any ‘how’.” Perhaps that is why surrendera Nath Jauhar could make light of his jail sentences and the tortures in jail – and enjoy jail life.

In his reply dated 10.4.1973 to a letter from shri K.c. pant , the then Minister of state in the Home Ministry about grant of ‘Political suffering’s s pension’ , he had this to say ;

“I do no t wish to be called a ‘political sufferer'. to struggle and fight for the Motherland was an absolute joy and not a suffering in any manner. And it was never done for… reward.”

When the Country became free and a fight for political a freedom was no longer needed , the valiant Jauhar , in answer to a higher call, Jumped into the ‘fire’ of world – transforming Yoga lit by sri Aurobindo . He gave his all to the cause of the Aurobindonian thrust in education, life and yoga . As Prof. K.R. Srinivasa Iyenger said in his homage, “ Chacha ji was a man of god , but thrown among frail human beings to raise them to the extent possible to his own level of consecration.”

This Interview is a gripping account of a life richly lived, in service – service of the Motherland , of society , of the Divine . And ‘service’ in the truest and highest sense of the word.

We are grateful to Dr. Hari Dev Sharma for this document of historical importance – he had recorded the interview on 29.4.1970 for the Nehru Memorial Museums and Library.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
John, USA
I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
Love your collection of books! I have purchased many throughout the years. I love you guys!
