“…we must look at each province of culture and, keeping always firm hold on a perception of what the Indian spirit is and the Indian ideal is, see how they can work upon the present situation and possibilities in each of these provinces and lead to a new victorious creation. In such thinking it will not do to be too dogmatic. Each capable Indian mind must think it out or, better, work it out in its own light and power,… and contribute some illumination or effectuation. The spirit of the Indian renascence will take care of the rest, that power of the universal Time-Spirit which has begun to move in our midst for the creation of a new and greater India.” (Sri Aurobindo, CWSA, 20: 52)

We welcome new voices, voices that will offer a fresh insight into what is needed for a true Indian renaissance, a rebirth of her eternal spirit in new forms, new movements, new life.

We invite articles, essays, reflective pieces, thoughtful critiques, analyses, travelogues, creative writings and photo-essays.
