Vallabhbhai Patel (1875-1950) – Letter - a two-page letter, handwritten in Gujerati; Parwada temple Date: 15.04.33 Dear Sister, I received your letter. You did it good that you visited Mumbai. There is no doubt that no other doctor can do it better that Haribhai. But the relatives do not get satisfied without consulting others as it is the rule of the world. Otherwise if the other’s advice was really needed, then Haribhai would have said to consult others. Now there is nothing to worry about it. If the God’s wish is to keep only 1 eye then we have to feel satisfaction about it. And if one eye works well and there is no need of second eye. They saw this world with two eyes for these many years. Now there is nothing left to see. There is no need of eyes to see the God as none of the eyes is useful in it. Rather, it becomes interrupt to see the God and we have to try to control it. No one can take the eyes from us which help to see the God. And sister, for that we need to close our eyes. So God might have wishing to help you in that way, so who knows it. You did it good that you visited Maniben. She used to worry about you hearing about your health. She again has a good time as Mrudula is together. This time it seems they have good time at Maniben. There is no chance to get holiday/off to meet me. Otherwise I was wishing to meet you both. My nose gives me trouble frequently. But it has become normal now. It does not affect my general health. I had a letter from Balubhai. He might have some relief now as [Guruji/illegible] has come. Also, Diwan master is coming after few days. Dahyabhai wrote me about the exam of Jitu. His situation is really pathetic. For how many years he will have to jump pits this way. But he has become interested in that work. So let him engage in it. Poor Rohit broken down. Dahyabhai just got saved. It is the grace of God, otherwise this time his illness was very heavy. Hope the doctor is well. We all are happy. Yours, Vallabhbhai’s salutation. Stamped to top 'Superintendent - Yeravda Central Jail (Poona)' with an official's signature in red. Written in black ink to both sides of two sheets of paper. Folded, some edge tears and a small tape repair to one page. Each measures 16.5cm x 10cm. Upon the failure of the Round Table Conference in London, Gandhi and Patel were arrested in January 1932 when the struggle re-opened, and imprisoned in the Yeravda Central Jail. During this term of imprisonment, Patel and Gandhi grew close to each other, and the two developed a close bond of affection, trust, and frankness. Their mutual relationship could be described as that of an elder brother (Gandhi) and his younger brother (Patel). Despite having arguments with Gandhi, Patel respected his instincts and leadership. In prison, the two discussed national and social issues, read Hindu epics, and cracked jokes. Gandhi taught Patel Sanskrit. Gandhi's secretary, Mahadev Desai, kept detailed records of conversations between Gandhi and Patel. When Gandhi embarked on a fast-unto-death protesting the separate electorates allocated for untouchables, Patel looked after Gandhi closely and himself refrained from partaking of food. Patel was later moved to a jail in Nasik, and refused a British offer for a brief release to attend the cremation of his brother Vithalbhai, who had died in October 1933. He was finally released in July 1934 Vallabhbhai Jhaverbhai Patel (31 October 1875 – 15 December 1950), endeared as Sardar, was an Indian statesman. He served as the first Deputy Prime Minister of India from 1947 to 1950. He was a barrister and a senior leader of the Indian National Congress, who played a leading role in the country's struggle for independence, guiding its integration into a united, independent nation. He was one of the conservative members of the Indian National Congress. In India and elsewhere, he was often called Sardar, meaning "chief" in Hindi, Urdu, and Persian. He acted as the Home Minister during the political inte
