MADANA MOHANA MALAVIYA

The Converted Donor

Then arose the problem of funds. Malaviya undertook a tour of the country. He began soliciting funds for the Hindu University. As his tour progressed his coffers began to swell. In the course of this tour to collect funds Malaviya reached Hyderabad; the Nizam was the ruler. The Nizam came to know the purpose of his visit. But being a Muslim, the Nizam was unwilling to donate any money to an institution which was to be called a Hindu University. He even conveyed his decision very clearly. Malaviya, however, did not want to return without a donation from the Nizam.

A rich Hindu died in Hyderabad on that day. His body was being carried in an impressive procession. His admirers were showering money on his dead body. Observing this, Malaviya began to pick up the money and to put it in a bag. I People who observed this was amazed. They joined him, picked up the coins and put them in Malaviya's bag. The bag was full.

The Nizam heard this news. He felt a sense of shame. Then the Nizam donated generously and happy about it.
