Abstract

Sri Aurobindo had a definite purpose in the choice of the Perseus – Andromeda myth for his play ‘Perseus the Deliverer’.  He was actively engaged in the country’s struggle for freedom. Perseus the Deliverer is one among the numerous writings in Bande Mataram through which he gave clarion call to the people to arise, awake and struggle relentlessly and tirelessly till the shackles of slavery were broken and the Mother India was liberated.  After here liberation Sri Aurobindo also wanted India to be reinstated in her glorious role of leading the entire humanity on to the path of spirituality
