Being deeply concerned about the crisis and predicament of modern man, and being inspired by the vision and ideal of a dynamic alternative in the field of education which can develop the individual into the fullness of his intellectual and spiritual nature, Prof. V. Madhusudan Reddy placed before the Mother the idea of founding a Sri Aurobindo Institute of Humanities at Hyderabad.

Immediately came her benedictory answer. She chose her own name for the institute:

Institute of Human Study”. She then gave it a special symbol. She also blessed the proposal of a quarterly journal for the institute, and named it ‘New Race’.  The Mother, in a rare gesture of Her abundant Grace, accepted to be the Permanent Honorary President of the Institute.
