Series of black and white photographs take us back into the lives of the inmates of the ashram at their times. The Nahars, beginning witth Prithvi Singh Nahar, a very resourceful person, who came to Pondicherry to settle in the Ashram linking Shantiniketan and Pondicherry; Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Visvabharati, were very old inmates, had blessings of the master sometimes. The Yogi’s touch blessed Suprabha-di too and it is reported that at ninety when she breathed her last she was the last person among the inmates who had received such tactile blessing from him . I knew her and her brothers and sisters. Of them the one who most attracted me was Abhay Singh Nahar. I regret their passing away. I would be benefited rejoicing his company more had he lived up to this day! And Suprabha-di, really she was so nice!
