Oct. 22 1956

Oct. 22 I am way behind in my diary and partly because of illness. I am writing this to Gavin because I am getting ready to send him a number of books. Three on mathematics are for Lloyd and perhaps one on science. I have written Lloyd therefore. The others are to be kept by Gavin either permanently... Sign in to see full entry.

letter con't.+

This is Sunday October 14 and it finds me in Bombay with a diary badly neglected. On October 1 I made a mistake in trying to leave Pondicherry and by this mistake met Mirza which was a Godsend. I met Mirza at his brother’s house in Madras. Before that I went to the U.S. Consulate and told them of my... Sign in to see full entry.

October 3, 1956

October 3, 1956 My dear Fred, This letter is being turned into diary notes because it will undoubtedly contain much of interest to “Papa” Ramdas. I am staying over in Madras a short while, to leave on the night of the 4 th, and should be in Kanhangad on the afternoon of the 5 th. I ought to be in... Sign in to see full entry.

Pondicherry, October 2, 1956

Pondicherry, October 2, 1956 My Dear Harry: I just remembered “Fescue to the rescue” when I last posted you a letter from Hyderabad. I have had the ironic fortune to have my hosts disappear, generally suddenly. For the whole country is being reorganized and men are moved around without notice. As a... Sign in to see full entry.

October 2, 1956

October 2, 1956 My history the last several days has been difficult to delineate. I was given a grand send-off in Hyderabad. I have the promise to speak at the University and I note there is one Professor Kalifa A. Hikim at the Osmania University with whom I should like to correspond. However, I...

Pondicherry October 1, 1956

Pondicherry October 1, 1956 My dear Professor Seroking, It is indeed a strange experience to find oneself in a realized “Shangrila” or “Shambhala,” to find, in fact, what has appeared in book or legend. Talbot Brady’s “Shambhala” or Hilton’s “Shangrila” may have excited many. The Roerichs wrote long... Sign in to see full entry.

Dear Rudolph:

Dear Rudolph: These are my diary notes for September 22, 1956. Instead of airmailing them and sending pictures separately, I send them together 1 st class sea. In one sense, I should not have come to Hyderabad. It was one of those “musts” imposed on me. I was refused admittance to the Nizam and my... Sign in to see full entry.

Hyderabad, September 21, 1956

Hyderabad, September 21, 1956 My dear Evelyn, My search for Indian Folk Dancing still goes unrewarded. In Bombay they have music and dancing, but it is for intellectuals. You either have very highbrow Indian classic art (including, alas, its most decadent features), or you have Western ballroom... Sign in to see full entry.

My Dear Gavin,

My Dear Gavin, It has been my dream to come to this place and solicit cooperation for the A.A.A.S. It is impossible now for two quite different reasons. In the first place, there is a political transformation going on which makes the position of office-holders very insecure. And in the second place,... Sign in to see full entry.
