APPENDIX

The intention tothrow open the temple to Harijans has evoked some criticism from the orthodox section of the community.

"Funds collected for the temple and other properties were transferred to the Trustees who have since been in possession of them.

"Sardar himself was to have not only attended the inaugural ceremony, but actually to perform the ceremony. Unfortunately, the temple could not be completed, and he died in the meantime. Apart from any other sentiment, we, all feels that we should help in the redemption of Sardar's pledge to the best of our ability.   

"In one of your earlier letters ' you had written to me about the expenses of the temple. In fact, at present, we are only building a small part of the temple, and the cost of it is not going to be more than Rs. 3 lakhs. For the celebrations we are cutting out all rationed foodgrains. For the sacrifices ' throwing in of grains in the sacrificial fire has been eschewed.

"The Somanatha Trust Funds and public subscriptions are going to meet the expenses of the installation ceremony. Your attention seems to have been drawn to a press note that the Saurashtra Government is spending Rs. 5 lakhs for the ceremony but not to the contradiction issued by it.
