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?
