When Aurobindo was in England, Maharaja Sayaji Rao Gaekwad of Baroda, a fervent nationalist himself went to him and offered him a job in the Baroda State. Aurobindo sailed for India in February 1893 to join the Baroda State Service.
In Bengal, Aurobindo played the pivotal role in building the militant nationalist movement. In 1899 Jatindranath Banerjee (who later came to be known as Niralamba Swami) met him in Baroda with an introduction from Sarala Devi Chaudhurani to take military training. As Bengalis were not encouraged to join military service, Jatin Banerjee was recruited in the Baroda State Army under the adopted name, Upadhyaya, with the help of Aurobindo. Jatin returned to Calcutta in 1902 to establish a revolutionary center, called East Club at 108 Upper Circular Road. Sister Nivedita helped Jatin to build up a library for revolutionaries by donating about 200 books and herself joined the club as an executive member. Aurobindo visited the club, accompanied by his brother Barin to develop it and build up the revolutionary movement in Bengal. In 1903 Aurobindo forged a merger of his Baroda group, led by Jatin Banerjee, with the Anushilan Samiti and became the Vice President along with C.R. Das. In 1903, Aurobindo visited Bengal again and stayed with Jogendranath Vidyabhusan. The latter had written on the lives of Mazzini and Garibaldi in Bengali.
The main objective of the East Club was
A to offer free education to the people.
B to build up a revolutionary movement in Bengal.
C to train up young men in sports and games.
D to study in the library.
