Roy wrote Sri Chaitanya under the aegis of Sri Aurobindo, in Pondicherry. Sri Aurobindo took great interest in the manuscript, commenting on each of the three acts of the play. He wrote to his protégé:" The third act, which is the most remarkable of the three, confirms the impression, already made by the other two of a vey fine and successful play outstanding in its dramatic interest and its thought substance." This is followed by a detailed commentary and appreciation.Sri Chaitanya and Mira are two dramas in blank verse in three Acts wherein the mystic concepts, Bhakti and Prem (Divine Love), are beautifully delineated making them a favourite among the scholars, devotees and spiritual aspirants, alike. Both these plays were first published independently and in 1979, Sri Aurobindo Ashram Pondicherry published them in a single volume. Here in this new edition, some changes and corrections made by the author himself have been incorporated.
