SCA 799-817. Excerpts from an interview with the Indian Express daily newspaper, which took place in Pondicherry, India, in June 1999.

Interviewer: Sri Chinmoy, please tell me about yourself. Where were you born?

Sri Chinmoy: I was born in Chittagong in 1931. I came to Pondicherry at the age of twelve. Then I stayed here at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram for twenty years. I went to the Ashram school. At that time there was no degree course. I studied for a few years, but I did not complete high school.
