This is the fourth and final volume in the correspondence (1938-1950) between Sri Aurobindo and Dilip Kumar Roy. Sri Aurobindo keeps up his correspondence with his favourite “son” throughout the difficult war years, always finding time for him personally even though having largely withdrawn to concentrate on his “real work”.

Dilip responds with an increased devotion and capacity for service, giving of himself tirelessly, as well as offering whatever material support he could muster through his writing, singing, etc. to Sri Aurobindo and Mother who fully appreciated his work during those times of rationing and scarcity.

Innumerable glimpses are there throughout the correspondence into Sri Aurobindo’s work for “the right development of the war and of change in the human world”.

“Sri Aurobindo has made our realization independent from all world circumstances, and He always considered you as part of the realization…” , writers Mother in one of the letters written to Dilipda after 1950. These letters from Mother are included in this volume.
