Dear Dr. Bhatnagar ,
I thank you for your kind
letter of the 7th September which 1 have just seen on my return to Madras.
I would have very much
loved to receive you at Karalkudi and show you round my institutions when you come there
on the 23rd; but it could not be as I am scheduled to leave for Japan on the 18th
September from Madras. After attending the Pacific Relations Conference in Kyoto, I shall
return to Madras on the 2th October.
I should like to add that
Mani, not 'M O N E Y' will be there to receive you. Will you kindly stay in the Bhavnagar
Stadium, and not merely your own Research Institute? You must kindly visit the Women's
College, started in the place where you had stayed and honored me by your stay, and also
the Montessori School just near the Stadium. Though the Colleges will be closed for the
terminal vacation, you could still see something of them.
I shall be arriving at
Delhi on the 14th afternoon, for the Governing Body meeting, and returning on the 15th
Looking forward to the
pleasure of meeting you and with kind regards,
