It said the film ‘Sri Aurobindo: The Beginning of Spiritual Journey’ will be screened on Independence Day to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Sri Aurobindo under Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.

The film is based on Sri Aurobindo Ghose’s prison life (1908-1909) in Alipore Jail, Kolkata, from where his spiritual journey has started.
