My dear Miss Concorde,

While at Nangal on the 8th, I received the shocking news of the passing away of our veteran comrade Dr. Bhagwan Singh Gyani. His death is an irreparable loss to the country. He was a great revolutionary, a staunch nationalist and a patriot to the core. Your association with him was rather at a still higher level. You knew his spiritual qualities and the task for human uplift for which he had been striving all his life. His death is a serious loss not only to the members of his family but to all his friends and admirers and especially the country which has lost in him a devoted patriot of the soil. In your case, however, the loss is still the great.

2.  Kindly accept my heartfelt condolences and sympathies in your sad bereavement and convey the same to other members of the family. May God give you strength and patience to bear this irreparable loss!

Your sincerely,
Partap Singh
(Patrap Singh)
