Beloo Mehra

Dr. Beloo Mehra fell in love with Sri Aurobindo and the Mother sometime in the summer of 2004, though she is sure that this love was hiding somewhere deep inside way before then. On the intellectual side it was primarily the cultural, social and educational thought of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, which first drew her in, but soon she realised not only the deep inter-connectedness between all aspects of Their Vision, but also the inherent Oneness behind all these many manifestations or expressions of their Divine Work. Dr. Mehra presently works as Senior Academic Mentor at AuroBharati, Sri Aurobindo Society, and Editor of Renaissance. She writes regularly for several journals and magazines and also for her blogs. Her academic background includes degrees in Education and Economics, and she has extensive research and teaching experience at school and university level in India and the US.
