Sri Aurobindo and historical events

Sri Aurobindo involved himself and made public pronouncements on important world-issues only twice after He settled in Pondicherry.

The first was in relation to the Second World War. At the beginning he did not actively concern himself with it, but when he found that Hitler was going out of control and that Nazism would rule the world, he began to intervene.

The second was in relation to Sir Stafford Cripps’ proposal for the transfer of power to India. Sri Aurobindo wanted the Indian leaders to accept the Cripps’ proposal so that partition could be avoided.
