Notes, topics or text 

BR has looked at crucial portions of Darookhanavala's book and has found it "interesting, and presenting a point of view that does not usually come from India." He is "horrified" by the destruction of copies of Darookhanavala's book by the Indian government and asks if he plans to have it published in England.



BR is unrepentant about his views on Socrates, saying that if Darookhanavala had lived all his life among those who have "made a sort of religion of him", he would understand BR's attitude to Socrates.



The letter has "16" and "Ans 31.3.51" pencilled on it by BR's secretary.
