APPENDIX

"As a result of the consultations between the States and the W.M.P. Ministries, the Government of India set up an Advisory Committee for implementing the decisions as regards Somanatha.

Several Government servants, including Dr. J. C. Ghosh ' Chemist, and the Town Planning Expert of the Government of India were members of the Committee. The Director-General of Archaeology was appointed the Convener, and in view of my fairly intimate knowledge of ancien  history of Gujarat, and particularly of Somanatha, I was appointed the Chairman of the Committee. As a Chairman, I took up the implementation of the scheme in closest co-operation with the States Ministry.  

"Later, I was asked to prepare a scheme for the University of Sanskrit to be located at Prabhas ' and the same was accepted by the States Ministry as one of the objects of the Trust.

"On October 18, 1949, Sardar approved of this Trust. Government of India appointed Gadgil and Rege, Regional Commissioner of Saurashtra, as their representatives on the Board of Trustees; it also nominated Shri B. M. Birla and myself as public men; Saurashtra Government nominated Jam Saheb and Samaldas Gandhi as their nominees.
