The ship S. S. Dupleix arrived in Pondicherry at 4 p.m. on April 4, 1910. Together with Sri Aurobindo at Pondicherry came Bijoy Kumar Nag. They had tickets for Colombo incognito, as Jyotindranath Mitra and Bankimchandra Basak. Sri Aurobindo got down with Bijoy Kumar and made straight in a horse-cart for Shankar Chetty’s house in Comoutty (Comty) Chetty Street. He was escorted by Srinivasachari, C. Subramania Bharati (revolutionary Tamil poet), Suresh Chandra Chakravarti and Shankar Chetty.
