 An editorial in Karma Yogin of  SRI AUROBINDO, written by Nivedita, we find the intense respect for India:

"The whole history of the world shows that the Indian intellect is second to none. This must be proved by the performance of a task beyond the power of others, the seizing of the first place in the intellectual advance of the world. Is there any inherent weakness that would make it impossible for us to do this? Are the countrymen of Bhaskarcharya and Shankaracharya  inferior to the countrymen of Newton and Darwin? We trust not. It is for us, by the power of our thought, to break down the iron walls of opposition that confront us, and to seize and enjoy the intellectual sovereignty of the world."
 She gave her all for India, for the women literacy. Sri Sarada  Moth is founded by her. This is led by the lady monk. She founded Bagbazar girl's school. Though from the west ,she is the torch bearer of Indian women's independence.  On October 13, 1911

only at the age 43 in Dargiling She left us. But Her immortal motherly soul is always with us.
