QuotationCertainly I want to meet Lal. Could I please have his address? I hope to land in Calcutta on an evening flight from Bangkok Oct.18th. If he has contact with the Jesuits at Xavier College that wd be a good thing as I could say Mess there that weekend. Lal might also steer me out to the monastery of my old friend Mahanambrata Bra[h]machari who is partially responsible for my own vocation. It's in the suburbs of Calcutta somewhere I think. I lake Lal's Dhammapada best of the lot. I do have the Sanskrit plays - in the library here I believe. I'll look them up.
