Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page26

Inviting, as I do, several of them often and at the same time with holding an invitation from them on this occasion would certainly create an impression that in matters of religious ceremony, we are so exclusiveas not even to invite them. No one, I am sure, will come even if invited. We cannot shut out the Foreign Correspondents if they come. I should like to seek your guidance in this matter.

"One word more. It is my faith in our past which has given me the strength to work in the present and to look forward to our future. I cannot value freedom if it deprives us of the Bhagavad Gita or uproots our millions from the faith with which they look upon our temples and thereby destroys the texture of our lives. I have been given the privilege of seeing my incessan  dream of Somanatha reconstruction come true. That makes me feel-makes me almost sure-that this shrine once restored to a place of importance in our life will give to our people purer conception of religion and a more vivid consciousness of our strength, so vital in these days of freedom and its trials."

It may be mentioned here that when the letter of Munshi was seen by V. P. Menon, who was then Adviser to the States Ministry, he wrote the following letter to Munshi: -

I have seen your master-piece, I for one would be prepared to live and, if necessary, die by the views you have expressed in your letter."
