was great in life; not merely great, -His personality was harmonious, perfect, beautiful.
More than three thousand years have passed by and yet He lives in our hearts as no man
ever has. No mother can think of the wonderful child except in terms of 'Balagopal'.
"I came to this spot 27 years ago. It was then lying bleak and
forlorn. In the early light of the dawn', it tore my heart to see this spot neglected by
ungrateful posterity. His Will, however, was supreme. India became free. I can only thank
Him for giving me the opportunity to see this day. In all humility I thank Him for giving
me an occasion to pay my humble tribute by planting this tree at the place where He spent
the last moments of His mortal life."
