Interviewer: Why did you leave Pondicherry?

Sri Chinmoy: Two Americans came to the Ashram. They saw something in me, and they invited me to come to America. In my last job here I was the secretary of the General Secretary of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Nolini Kanta Gupta. He was a well-known writer who was admired by Tagore. He was the main Secretary of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo. I did office work for him, plus translation of his writings from Bengali into English. About him, Tagore said, “Nolini Kanta’s contribution to Bengali literature is unique.”
