The complier of this article is expected to present the factual information to the reader.

Sri Aurobindo did not spend his life under police vigil in Pondicherry which was under the French government. He devoted his life towards transformative yoga which he called the 'Integral Yoga'. Also, Sri Aurobindo himself gave the consent to start the Ashram in 1926 - it was not set up by his followers.

Dear friend,
I refer to an article on Sri Aurobindo in India Today’s online edition:  “Remembering Indian philosopher and yogi, Sri Aurobindo: The journey from revolutionary to spiritual guru”.  The link to the article is is

 I draw your attention to the following paragraph:
11.  He addressed the people of India in his famous Uttarpara Speech, where he declared his transformation from a rebel to a person in quest of spiritual salvation. In April 1910, Ghose moved to Pondicherry where he spent the rest of his life under police vigil.

The line is highly misleading.  Sri Aurobindo was not under police vigil in Pondicherry.  As it is, the overall tenor of the article is not in conformity with the status of the Master.  I request you to open the article by clicking on the link mentioned above, read the article and then leave an appropriate comment on the article, at least telling India Today to correct the fact. I have already done so.  My comment to the article is as follows:

You Write: "In April 1910, Ghose moved to Pondicherry where he spent the rest of his life under police vigil."

 This is incorrect information.  Sri Aurobindo moved to Pondicherry which was under French rule to avoid harassment at the hands of British Indian Police.  In Pondicherry he was never under police vigil.  Morover, to write that he spent the 'rest of his life' under police vigil considering that India got its Independence in 1947 and Sri Aurobindo attained Mahasamadhi in 1950 implies that he was under police vigil even in Free India!  Of course it cannot be so.  Please correct your facts.
