UDAR - ONE OF MOTHER'S CHILDREN - EDITED BY GAURI PINTO
This book commemorates the birth centenary of Laurence Pinto(1907–2001), who was given the name "Udar" by Sri Aurobindo in 1938. Printed on art paper, it is a collection of anecdotes, facts, stories, and over 400 photographs that reveal the story of Udar's life. Educated and trained as an aeronautical engineer, his talents and skills were used by the Mother in the creation of Harpagon Workshop and the construction of Golconde, the organisation of the Physical Education Department, and the development of the Handmade Paper Unit, the Laboratoires Senteurs, Coco Garden Concrete Works, and Honesty Engineers and Contractors. The photographs and memories recorded here give vivid testimony to Udar's dynamic presence in the daily life of the Ashram over a span of many years.
