Letter to Godha Ram Channon

Letter to Godha Ram Channon from unknown writer; the writer states he agrees with Channon that money should be raised for Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, but that the present situation makes this unlikely. He goes on to say that members of local Indian American organizations feel snubbed by Indian Ambassador Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, who ignored a recent invitation (Ram Bagai is mentioned as one of these). The writer urges Channon to resist the idea that India should be divided into north and south, and reminds him that (along with an unspecified member of the Watumull family) he donated whenever possible to groups that advocated for a united India.
