Here's the latest...and thanks to everyone.  BTW, it would be interesting to get either a pix or the URL of the pix with Einstein and Tagore.

I just received an e-mail from Mr. Ramprakash in relation to the visit to Adyar by Mrs. Wadia:

This comes from Mr. Anand Kundaji, a close associate of Mrs. Wadia:

"I know nothing about this --  I doubt whether Madame could have been present at Adyar TS -- she never went there as far as I know"

So, this appears to throw cold water on the story of Mrs. Wadia visiting Adyar.  I wonder how she would have reacted had she witnessed the donation of an Einstein writing?  Would the donation have become public quite rapidly or would it have been kept quiet?
