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.
