30. To Rabindranath Tagore
DEAR GURUDEV,
I have just received your letter of 5th inst. Had I not to go to Belgaum on the very date you will have the opening ceremony, I would most certainly have come not only for the ceremony but also to see you and Santiniketan which I have not seen now for years. As it is I shall be with you in spirit when Jawaharlal will be performing the ceremony. May the Chinese Hall be a symbol of living contact between China and India.
The letter you wrote to me over that momentary misunderstanding lies in my jacket as a treasure. It brought tears of joy to my eyes. It was so worthy of you. With love and respects,
Yours,
M. K. GANDHI
