A GREAT RESTORER RISES

Next month, Sardar, accompanied by Jam Saheb and Kakasaheb Gadgil, went to Junagadh on November 12, 1947, the Diwali Day.

Jam Saheb told me his impressions. He accompanied the Sardar to the temple premises. "We then went down the steps  to the sea. Sardar then took some water from the sea in his hands. He said to me: 'My ambition is fulfilled'. We silently returned and entered the temple. All his worries were gone and a new light was reflected on Sardar's face."

"We went," writes Kakasaheb "to Junagadh. From Junagadh, we went to Veraval and on Kartik Sud 1st, the New Year Day of Samvat 2004, we visited Somanath.  "We saw the temple. While Sardar and I were having a little walk on the beach, I said to Sardar: 'I think the Government of India ought to re-build this temple.' "He said: 'Well, go ahead."
