Barindra Kumar Ghosh

Barindra Kumar Ghosh, born on January 5, 1880, in Croydon, near London, was a significant figure in the Indian revolutionary movement and a journalist. He was the younger brother of the renowned spiritual leader and philosopher Sri Aurobindo. Barindra’s early life was influenced by his family’s intellectual and reformist background, with his father being a physician and his mother, the daughter of the Brahmo reformer Rajnarayan Basu. After completing his education, Barindra was drawn towards the revolutionary movement, inspired by his brother Aurobindo. He became one of the founding members of Jugantar, a key revolutionary outfit in Bengal, which was involved in various anti-British activities. His revolutionary activities led to his arrest and subsequent life imprisonment in the notorious Cellular Jail in the Andamans, although he was released in 1920. Later in life, Barindra shifted towards spirituality and journalism, contributing to various publications and starting his own, including “The Dawn of India.” He also authored several books, including “The Tale of My Exile,” detailing his experiences in the Andamans. Barindra Kumar Ghosh passed away on April 18, 1959, leaving behind a legacy of both revolutionary zeal and intellectual contributions to India’s freedom movement and cultural discourse.
